Why You Need Promisec

You need a new kind of approach to tackle today’s threats.

Why? The short answer, because Prevention is Ideal but Detection is a must.

It used to be that just keeping your antivirus (AV) up to date kept you out of harm’s ways. Then along came malware detection which is really AV for your browser in disguise.  Then came application blockers which are nice until you realize your IT tickets are increasing proportional to the decrease in allowed applications (to speak nothing of the added user frustration). Now there are more technologies to record and detonate potential threats being thrown at your endpoints than ever, all in the name of security.

However there are still challenges such as:

  • Having unified visibility and control over what’s running on your endpoints and servers for the myriad of security products trying to defend them
  • Ensuring that you can respond in seconds to the next threat that effects your endpoints and servers
  • Knowing that you are ready for the next generation of threats by sourcing the latest threat intelligence

What you need is a way to ensure that what is supposed to be running on your endpoints is actually running and that you have complete control over it, all without installing security software. Given what you are likely using today falls short of this what you need is a new way, and that way is Promisec.

With Promisec you can achieve holistic, agentless, endpoint security and compliance that enables you to:

Gain complete visibility across all of your endpoints

Complete visibility means being able to see all files, all registries, all processes, all network connections, all 3rd party products (including security agents like AV suites), all polices (group and local) and all OS versions. Complete visibility also means all endpoints (Promisec doesn’t require installing security agents like our competitor’s do) and we can see all modern and legacy OSes. Complete visibility means continuously running  in environments that do not tolerate downtime- such as stock trading systems and Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) environments.

Analyze Everything

Promisec has years of research that allows our technology to optimize how we ask and understand what is running on an endpoint. The result is incredibly fast (sub 10 second per endpoint) responses on advanced queries at enterprise scale that can detect change in your environment. By having a clear definition of how something is supposed to be (including support for any standard, NIST, CIS, etc) and how an endpoint changed, we can respond more intelligently with actions to drive events to your SIEM team, to your patch management team, to your endpoint protection team, to your security analytics team or to your incident response team or directly to your endpoint.

Promisec Remediation or Escalation
Respond with remediation or escalation

With a clear understanding of change or deviation from a known, compliant state, you have an opportunity to respond with clear actions.  Promisec enables 3 ways to respond:  automated (as defined by your rules), manual enabled actions (with built in right clicks on actions) or escalated to another system like a SIEM or to an IT trouble ticket system. Promisec enables you to respond yourself with many built-in actions to remove blacklisted software, change policies, force applications to quit and uninstall or even to disconnect from the network or shut down completely. The Promisec platform also allows you to customize and create your own actions.

Report definitively

The Promisec platform allows you to report across organizational and regulatory guidelines in standard out of the box reports or via custom reporting capabilities. Promisec also allows creation of advanced dashboards to keep an eye on what matters to your organization and filter out the noise. Promisec enables you to stay on top of your endpoints, without putting extra software on them.

Promisec Deploy Time
Deploy in Days

Traditional Security products take weeks, months, and sometimes never to deploy across your enterprise. A Promisec solution via its agentless architecture deploys across thousands to tens of thousands endpoints and servers in a matter of hours to just a few days, and requires very little support and maintenance on an ongoing basis. Agent based technologies that have similar capabilities require weeks of planning and execution to get introduced and deployed with the least amount of interruption.  In many cases, customers deploy a single unified server or a Promisec management server and couple of Sentry’s to cover their entire enterprise allowing customers to go from drawing on a whiteboard to deploying in rapid fire fashion.
