Frequently Asked Questions about Warden

What is it Endpoint Security?

Endpoint security refers to controlling the access rights to endpoints, such as a computer, laptop, mobile device or tablet that connect to a corporate network to limit the potential for harm by external media. For example, if a user plugs in a USB drive to their work computer, an endpoint security program can disable or limit access to the drive.

Who needs Endpoint Security?

As stated in the FFIEC Cybersecurity Assessment Tool as a baseline requirement, “Controls are in place to restrict the use of removable media to authorized personnel.” Therefore, all financial institutions need Endpoint Security to ensure their data is safe from removable media.

What does Endpoint Security cost?

Endpoint Security is a valuable layer of security against cybercrime, especially against data loss via portable storage devices. The solution offered by Safe Systems, Warden, is economically priced and is determined by the number of endpoint devices being protected.

Frequently Asked Questions about Scout

What is it ransomware?

Ransomware is a type of malware, or malicious software, designed with the unique intent on encrypting then blocking an owner’s access to their data or files until a specified sum of money is paid.

How do I stop ransomware?

The best practice against ransomware is a combination of training and software. Training your end users to recognize potential attacks and avoid being an unwitting part of a successful breach is important. In addition to user training, installing an anti-ransomware solution will thwart attempts. Anti-ransomware recognizes and stops the malicious encryption process even before the virus is detected. By stopping the encryption of your data the criminals have nothing to hold for ransom. 

What does anti-ransomware cost?

Safe System’s anti-ransomware solution, Scout, can stop a ransomware from encrypting the infected device, alert someone that the device is infected, and provide a thorough log of events to determine how the device was compromised. There is an annual cost per device, for this valuable protection.

Frequently Asked Questions about SELM

What is Security Event Log Monitoring (SELM)?

Security Event Log Monitoring is simply reviewing events that occur within your network to detect any anomalies, data breach attempts, or network intrusions.

Why do we need SELM?

It is important for community banks and credit unions to be aware of any suspicious and potentially harmful activity involving their network. Security Event Log Monitoring enables easier and more efficient review and scrutiny of events.

What should a SELM do?

An event log monitoring solution should be able to efficiently comb through all of your daily logs and notify you when any activity needs further review.
