CyberGuard360, a firm which develops a solution set of products to detect and mitigate threats from cyber attacks, today announced the release of their PIIGuard360 Breach Prevention Platform, the first of its kind to market.
Al Alper, Chief Executive Officer of CyberGuard360 and sister company Absolute Logic, said that the platform has been distributed to a number of CyberGuard360 partners throughout the United States who will market and oversee the rollout of the program.
Alper notes that the genesis of this latest platform is the disproportionally large number of breaches that are caused by human error and/or lack of proper education and monitoring by the company.
“The best protection against cyber attacks is only as good as the team using it,” Alper said, noting that the platform is designed to help raise the awareness level and defensive posture of the human endpoints. “Our CyberGlass platform monitors, manages and mitigates threats on the technological side,” he said, adding, “A company can employ the very best protections on the market, but when an employee clicks on an infected email, they create a significant hole in the protective armor and invite a data breach.”
He continued, “And, while we’ve seen an increase in the number of companies providing training for employees, the same principle applies: good training works when people implement and follow it. Along with training, our PIIGuard360 includes a policy and procedures compliance and audit module. The organization posts its company policies and procedures, employees electronically sign it, and PIIGuard360 monitors how the employees behave relative to those policies.”
