CEO John Prisco to Talk Cybersecurity at Summits This Week

This week, our CEO John Prisco is making two stops on the East Coast to speak to the financial sector at the Billington Cyber Security Summit on Sept.16, 2014 in Washington D.C. at the Capitol Hilton and the Wall Street Journal Cyber Security Summit on Sept.18, 2014 in New York City at the New York Hilton.

At the Billington Cyber Security Summit on Sept.16, John will participate as a panelist on “Breakout 4: Finance Sector and Cyber Security,” from 1:30-2:20 p.m. ET. Along with experts from Goldman Sachs and Northern Trust, he will be sharing his expertise on the latest cyber-threat intelligence sharing in the financial services industry and how the financial sector is coping with mobile and cloud security and the Internet of Things (IoC).

On Sept.18 at The Wall Street Journal Cyber Security Summit, John will speak from 4:30-5:15 p.m. ET on a panel titled “Threats Facing Financial Institution & Global Markets.” The session will review ways to prevent and recover from serious attacks, protect private and confidential data and the emerging dangers organizations face as hackers are adapting and growing more dangerous.

Triumfant Lends its Expertise to Breaking News Stories on the Latest Cyber Attacks

Triumfant CEO Johnbreaking news Prisco has been busy lending expert commentary to the media on recent cyber-attacks – at home and abroad. First up, news that Russian hackers stole 1.2 billion user names and passwords in a series of Internet heists affecting 420,000 websites. The Russian gang also amassed 500 million email addresses that could help them engineer other crimes.

The reported break-ins are the latest incidents to raise doubts about the security measures that both big and small companies use to protect people’s information online – asking companies: “are you as vigilant as you can be?”

John Prisco shares his thoughts with the Associated Press:

“The breadth of these break-ins should serve as a chilling reminder of the skullduggery that has been going undetected on the Internet for years. This issue reminds me of an iceberg, where 90 percent of it is actually underwater. That’s what is going on here… So many cyber breaches today are not actually reported, often times because companies are losing information and they are not even aware of it.”

Supervalu is the latest retail chain to reveal a payment card breach. The supermarket chain confirmed Friday (Aug. 15) that that there was a payment card breach and consumer information may have been stolen from 180 Supervalu-affiliated stores across the United States. John Prisco shares his thoughts with Sean Michael Kerner of eWEEK:

John Prisco, president and CEO at Triumfant, also isn’t surprised and isn’t optimistic about retail security. “No one should be surprised about retail breaches,” Prisco said. “Retailers do not invest enough in cyber-security, and why should they? Consumers keep shopping at their stores.”

Triumfant Unveils its New Mac Agent at Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit

mac-osTriumfant is pleased to unveil its new Mac agent today at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit. Complementing our existing Windows agent, Mac OS users can now benefit from the same reliable, advanced threat detection and rapid remediation software on the endpoint.

Apple continues to achieve significant sales in terms of Mac units sold each year, a trend that is also making inroads with corporate users. In the last decade, the company has increased sales by more than 15 million new units sold per year. The popularity and volume of Mac devices in the enterprise makes it a prime target for cyber criminals looking for mass exploit.  Most security teams can’t detect or react fast enough to these inevitable threats. They need continuous protection and intelligent, real-time analytics and precision-remediation capabilities that provide a comprehensive view of the endpoint population, detect change and respond with accuracy and speed to anomalous activities.

Today’s announcement illustrates how Triumfant has evolved its solution to ensure all systems, including Mac, are able to reap the benefits of our reliable, patented approach to threat detection and remediation, and the first solution to offer a memory process scanner for attacks occurring in a computer’s Random Access Memory (RAM).

Triumfant’s support for Mac OS provides a clear and accurate view into the security posture of an organization and closes the gaps left by firewall, antivirus and sandbox technologies. Triumfant’s self-learning technology is a sound investment for organizations running Mac or Windows. It continuously evolves to keep ahead of next-generation threats and malicious attacks – reducing the costs associated with data loss, effectively managing risk and improving the overall security of any business.

We will be showcasing the new Mac agent today in booth #1101.  For more information about the Triumfant Mac agent, or to schedule one-on-one time with Triumfant at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit, please visit: http://bit.ly/1lwXf00.

 

 

Join Us at the Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit

The Gartner Security & Risk Management Summit is just around the corner, June 23-26 in Triumfant’s backyard — National Harbor, MD.  As one of the industry’s most exclusive events, we’re pleased to be a part of the annual gathering and exhibition.  Touted as  helping CISOs and security professionals balance security and opportunity and guide the enterprise quest for risk mitigation, Triumfant will be there to demonstrate its unrivaled approach to advanced threat detection and rapid remediation on the endpoint.

The cost of security intrusions are escalating year-over-year.  The average cost of a data breach is $3.5 million, up 15% from a year ago according to Ponemon Institute’s 2014 Cost of a Data Breach Global Analysis.  As security departments remain short staffed, and traditional signature-based defenses continue to let advanced malware through, companies need Triumfant to know, with certainty, that an attack has happened and to swiftly patch, isolate or remediate the infected machine — in just minutes, without any disruption to the business.

We’re pleased that Gartner agrees, including Triumfant as one of the vendors named in the “Market Guide for Endpoint Detection and Response Solutions” published May 13, 2014 by analysts Peter Firstbrook and Neil MacDonald. 

If you’re a large enterprise struggling to keep ahead of advanced threats and quickly prevent loss when inevitable attacks happen, we’d encourage you to stop by the Triumfant booth or schedule one-on-one time with executives during the show by visiting the landing page here:

What Does Symantec Have in Common with Weekend at Bernie’s? Both Have Been Carrying Dead Weight Around

Image

Antivirus is dead, according to the company that invented it. Symantec this week said it was is discontinuing its 25-year-old anti-malware product because it doesn’t work. Triumfant and other security visionaries have known for years that antivirus is dead and that rapid detection and response is the new prevention.  Adversaries are skillfully constructing targeted attacks that purposefully evade traditional endpoint detection solutions. The reality is organizations will be breached, most aren’t  prepared, and the adversary is winning.

Much like the plot of the popular 80’s dark comedy, Weekend at Bernie’s,  Symantec has been carrying antivirus dead weight around for years, attempting to push a product that doesn’t work and can’t keep up with the times.  Declining revenues and CEO turnover, Symantec has been shamed into acknowledging that their antivirus legacy is no longer viable and that a corporate pivot and turnaround is critical.  “We don’t think of antivirus as a moneymaker in any way,” Symantec’s senior vice president for information security told The Wall Street Journal

Time will tell if Symantec can unload its dead weight and reinvent itself with new solutions for rapid detection and remediation that are as technically ambitious as existing vendors on the market.  To technically catch up to pure endpoint security firms like Triumfant, that can detect, minimize and contain the damage of an attack.  Who’s proven technology is already being used by government, media and financial institutions to detect breaches in real-time at the point of infiltration, generate a comprehensive and actionable analysis within minutes of the attack, and build a situational remediation that stops the breach and repairs all of the primary and collateral damage to the machine within five minutes.
