BUFFERZONE Security: Building the Powerful Defence Layer
Amidst the pandemic, the world saw an alarming surge in ransomware cyberattacks. In fact, various market reports including that of Forbes pointed about 105% increase in such attacks. Moreover, it is recognized that browsing sessions and endpoints are the largest, most vulnerable attack surface an organization. “Unlike before, with ransomware-as-a-service tools, it is very easy to attack users. Anyone can just send an interesting email with a phishing attempt or a lure attempt, they click on the link, download the executable and the device is infected with ransomware. This is where BUFFERZONE Security is creating the barrier that secure organizations,” beings Israel Levy, CEO, BUFFERZONE Security.
BUFFERZONE Security is a cybersecurity solutions provider that delivers pro-active and cutting-edge security systems that does not rely on detection and alerting. The company’s patented containment technology isolates threats such as ransomware, zero-day exploits, and phishing coming from downloads or removable media. Whereas the BUFFERZONE Safe Workspace for endpoints provides ironclad protection from all types of downloaded and attached malware, and combats web fraud (phishing) with cutting-edge intelligent detection and prevention. Moreover, BUFFERZONE intelligently manages automatic, source-based endpoint containment and disarming decisions. With BUFFERZONE Enterprise edition, organizations can configure containment and disarming policies for different endpoint groups. BUFFERZONE Standalone edition gives endpoint users control over containment and disarming of browsers, downloads, email, and removable devices. “This is one of the simplest security solution to work with. As you open the file, it is protected in the container. Moreover, if you want to save it out of the container, you just Save As and its done,” explains Levy.
While AI and other innovations are already taking a big leap, there are people in organizations who are unaware about security and policies. They're not aware about the security risk that a simple action in browser or computer can cause the solution to simplify the security process. At this point, the BUFFERZONE virtual container protects any application that an organization define as insecure including web browsers, email, Skype, FTP and even removable storage. BUFFERZONE is transparent to both the application and the end-user, yet completely seals off threats from the rest of the computer. Unlike conventional endpoint detection solutions that depend on signatures or behavioral profiles to detect malicious activity, BUFFERZONE simply isolates malware regardless of whether it is known or new and prevents it from doing any harm.“For small and medium sized businesses, we offer the BUFFERZONE standalone, an innovative and simple end-point security solution that there's no one involved,” extols Levy.
What makes the company stand out from the crowd is the fact that BUFFERZONE is the only containment solution that is designed to address the real needs of both end users and IT. With BUFFERZONE Endpoint Protection Software, employees can safely browse the internet and open attachments in a virtual environment, and then securely remove files that they need from the container and share them with the rest of the organization. While malware cannot exit the container, BUFFERZONE tracks malicious activity where it can do no harm and shares it with enterprise analytics. It also comes with a unique capability to identify endpoint browsing sessions to the organizational proxy as originating from contained or uncontained applications. This enables configuring the proxy to prevent endpoints from circumventing BUFFERZONE and to enforce appropriate secure browsing with a high level of granularity. When passport enforcement is enabled, browser communications include an encrypted shared secret, different for contained and for uncontained. The organizational proxy can check for this header and act accordingly. The buffer solution, as we have it today, is doing great. We prevent attacks, it means that if a file is download or insert a USB with malware there is a high chance or risk.Our sophisticated, deep learning algorithms will understand where you are browsing, what are you seeing and our security technology will stop all types of threats. We have a prevention layer and a phishing layer to complement it,” points Levy.
Since opening its doors, BUFFERZONE has been a pioneer in delivering cutting-edge security solutions to a variety of organizations of all sizes. “What we're going to do is continue to automate every aspect of our security solutions. From the end user to the administrator, we envision to make cybersecurity convenient and automated, while delivering the highest level of security,” concludes Levy.
