Attivo Networks Named Affiliate Board Advisor to FS-ISAC Organization
Brings Deception-based Threat Detection and Threat Intelligence Solutions to Members
Fremont, CA, September 15, 2015 – Attivo Networks™, an innovator in information security threat detection, today announced it has been named an Affiliate Board Advisor of the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center (FS-ISAC), a community of financial organizations working together to share cyber and physical threat intelligence and combat cybercrime activities. FS-ISAC is unique in that it was created by and for members and operates as a member-owned non-profit entity.
As an Affiliate Board Member, the company will contribute to helping FS-ISAC members combat the growing complexity and number of breaches by detecting cyber threats that have bypassed perimeter security systems and are propagating within company networks and datacenters. The first deception-based threat detection provider to join the FS-ISAC as an Affiliate Board Advisor, Attivo Networks offers a real-time, non-disruptive threat detection solution. It reduces the time and difficulty associated with detecting inside-the-network threats in financial institutions regardless of whether their financial data is stored on a public, private or hybrid cloud environment.
“We appreciate the commitment Attivo Networks has made today by becoming an Affiliate Member of the FS- ISAC. In addition to threat and incident updates, members of FS-ISAC welcome the chance to look at new information security solutions such as those offered by Attivo,” said Bill Nelson, FS-ISAC CEO and President.
“Financial institutions are reported to have an average of six security incidents per year resulting in estimated total losses of $3.4M. This is being driven by gaps in third party security, insider threats, and the growing complexity of cyber attacks,” said Tushar Kothari, CEO of Attivo Networks. “Perimeter security solutions are failing to stop intrusions and Attivo provides members with the next line of defense to detect threats once they are inside the network. We are excited about the opportunity to provide the FS-ISAC members with the solutions to defend against inside-the-network threats, and the threat intelligence to immediately shut down current attacks and prevent them in the future.”
FS-ISAC (fsisac.com), or the Financial Services Information Sharing and Analysis Center, is the global financial industry’s go to resource for cyber and physical threat intelligence analysis and sharing. FS-ISAC is unique in that it was created by and for members and operates as a member-owned non-profit entity. Visit the FS-ISAC Web site at: http://www.fsisac.com/.
