Businesses globally are being compromised by an onslaught of targeted and fileless cyber attacks, and industry-leading cyber security vendor F-Secure is answering the demand for new types of services to combat these attacks. Via its growing network of channel partners, F-Secure is introducing a new purpose-built managed endpoint detection and response (EDR) service to protect companies from targeted cyber attacks and advanced threats. Co-created with partners, the service offers partners a chance to get in on the surging opportunity around managed EDR services.
“Companies are demanding managed services and advanced threat protection, requiring more human participation and expertise than is offered by standard security products,” said Thomas Zeller, Managing Director at BWG Informations systeme GmbH. “F-Secure offers us new managed service opportunities and we have access to their threat analysts in case needed.”
55% of incidents investigated by F-Secure’s incident response services are caused by targeted attacks, while only 45% are opportunistic. And more than ever, attackers are employing methods designed to evade traditional endpoint protection technologies: Ponemon projects that 35% of attacks in 2018 will be fileless, up 6% from last year, and these attacks are almost ten times more likely to succeed than traditional file-based attacks.
