Fujitsu Safeguards Against Cyberattacks with Cyber Threat Intelligence Service
- Predictive Cyber Security service ensures customers can properly defend themselves against ongoing threat of cyberattack
- Managed service combines expert support with real-time threat intelligence data from a wealth of sources, providing a 24/7 assessment of the constantly changing threat landscape and the potential impact on customers
- Service provides customers with regular updates on how to combat cyberattacks to keep their business running
Cyber security has become one of the leading boardroom issues. A targeted cyberattack can cause chaos for an organization, if data is corrupted, deleted, or encrypted with ransomware by hackers who demand a fee to provide the unlock code. In fact, according to a recent report1
by global insurer Lloyds of London, attacks on computer operating systems run by a large number of businesses around the world could cause losses of $28.7 billion in terms of their financial, economic and insurance impact.
Fujitsu is addressing this growing concern with its CTI service, which takes a predictive view to provide the earliest possible warning for relevant new IT security threats, focused on enabling business continuity through threat mitigation. The service offers clear, predictive indicators of potential damage to business from new cyber threats, as well as simple and effective security recommendations. Fujitsu security experts are also on hand to help organizations take proactive countermeasures to minimize their risk of being breached, such as providing 24x7 customer systems monitoring. With its CTI service, Fujitsu aims to ensure that organizations can continue to function even when under cyberattack.
Rob Norris, Head of Enterprise and Cyber Security at Fujitsu in EMEIA, says: “Being online is the lifeblood for all organizations today – and it is critical to remain online, and protect the integrity of your systems and your data – even when you’re under attack from cyber criminals. Nobody should underestimate the catastrophic damage that a cyberattack can cause – starting with a simple slip, such as opening an infected email. The nature and scale of cyber threats is changing so fast that traditional security solutions on their own are no longer enough to provide adequate protection. Instead, organizations need to understand and carefully manage their risk of threat exposure and constantly test and make sure their defenses are continually up to the task. Preparation is key: In the event of an attack, a response and recovery plan makes all the difference in minimizing the impact of the attack. What we give our customers with the CTI service is a comprehensive view of their security posture, thorough analysis of security risks and actionable information – because today, being unprepared for a cyber attack can easily put a company out of business.”
Fujitsu’s Managed Security Services are already protecting thousands of businesses around the world, with follow-the-sun, intelligence-led security operations that secure data and technology platforms. Fujitsu’s Cyber Security solutions combine deep knowledge in system monitoring with best-in-class software and tools from strategic partners to provide the new Fujitsu CTI service. Now available to customers in the EMEIA region as a 24/7 managed service to provide heightened awareness of current and new threats, and with fast, rich and detailed reporting, the CTI service provides the inside track related to new attacks and vulnerabilities that organizations need to be aware of in order to withstand cyber attacks.
Fujitsu Cyber Threat Intelligence provides more targeted insight than traditional Managed Security Services
With a human intelligence-led approach, Fujitsu’s CTI service provides more targeted insight than traditional, purely technology-driven approaches to managed security services. Fujitsu’s Cyber Threat Intelligence teams perform thorough, ongoing monitoring and assessment of the threat landscape, bringing together threat intelligence data from a broad range of sources – including customers’ own, and from sources such as strategic technology partners, market-leading third-party tools and intelligence forums – for in-depth threat and risk analyses. This combined intelligence is used to help determine the severity of evolving cyber threats, with customers being advised on their individual risk levels, and offered recommendations on how to implement counter measures and proactively mitigate threats.
A key part of the new Fujitsu CTI service is keeping customers informed of developments that may impact on their digital operations. As well as providing dashboards for customers, Fujitsu also shares findings and recommendations through ‘early warning’ threat advisories, daily digests, weekly bulletins and monthly client calls – a combination of channels intended to ensure customers are always fully aware of the threat landscape and can take the necessary actions to minimize or mitigate their risk of attack.
