Client Side Web Application Protection – Little Effort for a Big Win
There aren’t many small cybersecurity issues. Most of them are tall. Things like client-side attacks, ransomware, denial of service, zero-days, and phishing cause you long days, sleepless nights, and pose major risks to your organization.
And when you strive to protect your organization from attacks, you find that there aren’t many small solutions either. Tackling the seemingly endless defense priorities takes up a large chunk of your time and budget. Sometimes solutions protect you from one problem only to cause another, like adding huge management loads to an already overworked team or disrupting business processes. Installing, optimizing and maintaining them is a big effort.

Source Defense works with your existing security solutions to extend your security perimeter to the customer.
Not just detection, but prevention!
While it is certainly better to know about a threat than not, these tools do not prevent attacks from occurring. They just detect. It is then up to your teams to investigate each alert, determine if it poses a real threat, and remove the malicious code.
This could cause considerable overhead in responding to alerts, many of which will be false positives from abuse of power by your third parties. We’ve seen millions of examples of non-malicious incidents that would trigger detection and alert solutions, meaning you’ll either overwhelm your existing teams or need to add dedicated resources at a time when finding people is a major challenge. It’s a step up from where you are today – and there are times when detection is just a good first step, but prevention by default is the ultimate solution to the problem. You may be able to stem the bleeding, but you haven’t stopped the attack from happening. So, despite a noble intention and your investment, the risk to your organization is not fully mitigated.
Opt for prevention and with a solution that adds no additional burden to your already overworked security teams.
