The last 18 months have seen an increase in the number of Cyber Security breaches globally. These have ranged from ransomware attacks, huge data breaches, supply chain threats and the proliferation of ‘fake news’ items. Such threats pose a significant risk to individuals and businesses which increasingly rely on the Internet for everyday transactions and activities. These range from applications running from mobile phones and traffic through domestic modems, right through to complex software systems upon which everything from financial and medical services, transportation systems and national and public security are dependent.

The UK’s National Cyber Security Centre (2018) has highlighted particular areas of concern. Given the continuing interest in cryptocurrency, crytojacking – where an individual’s computer processing power is used to mine cryptocurrency without the user’s consent – is likely to become a regular source of revenue for website owners. Additionally, increased use of Cloud technology to store sensitive information, including personal data, provides an ongoing temptation for cyber attackers, which could result in UK citizens’ information being breached.

As we have seen over the last year or so, the impact of a cyber attack can result in significant financial losses to businesses of all sizes. These arise from the cost of the attack itself, the cost of implementing remedial action, and – perhaps most importantly – the impact on reputation and client trust. For SME’s this could be catastrophic.

Additionally, the enforcement of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) from 25 May 2018 could potentially lead to large fines for organisations that fail to prevent data breaches and which result in citizens’ data being put at risk.

Current Cyber Security models are fundamentally flawed in that they rely on a cycle of a scan, detect, clean and repeat; and techniques such as firewalls and antivirus cannot offer complete protection. Systems remain vulnerable to attack after they have been cleaned and data already were stolen.

coolDC’s Cyber Security partner – GBMS Tech – provides a paradigm shift, offering a solution to the threat of cyber breach, rather than a sticking-plaster following a breach. Its lead product, Accumulus Threat Shield, is a complete hardware and software solution with a 24/7 monitored Cyber Security service, offering the highest level of protection for businesses and enterprise.

How Does it Work?

GBMS Tech’s three-pronged solution provides end-point protection, network protection monitoring, and protection from human error.

GBMS Tech creates a list of trusted applications that you want to run. By validating executables at the kernel layer, malware is blocked regardless if originating from a bad email link, website, or connected drive. Accumulus Threat Shield effectively blocks all threats, even zero-day attacks.

Multiple Fingerprint technology prevents hackers from being able to submit a malicious app in sheep’s clothing. This technology is scalable, fast and secure. You can add certificate base validation to allow trusted apps to update automatically.

Accumulus Threat Shield is a 24/7 software and hardware monitoring service with professional human oversight. GBMS Tech’s highly trained Cyber Security experts can detect and trace security threats to take immediate action blocking malicious activity before a breach can occur.
