AdvIntel, a leading cybersecurity threat prevention and loss avoidance company with a unique and unparalleled ability to detect and disrupt ransomware and KPMG LLP, the global audit, tax and advisory firm, today announced an alliance around AdvIntel’s “Andariel” Threat Prevention & Loss Avoidance Platform.
The profile of ransomware victims has moved upmarket over the past year as the adversaries have enhanced their capabilities faster than cyber defenses at an alarming trend.
According to AdvIntel CEO, Vitali Kremez, “The state of the current cyber security market is full of uncertainties. The current breach response is traditionally reactive, leading to a breach after a breach. Now, with the unique alliance, we are effectively reversing the traditional breach paradigm with the vision to disrupt breaches before they turn into ransomware. Our goal is to bring the world closer to a ransomware-free future via the proactive and preventative breach response.”
Andariel’ s ability to track botnet initial compromises enables AdvIntel’ s customers to take action before data and personally identifiable information is leaked, which could prevent regulatory, reputational, and legal losses related to data breach legal liability.
Ed Goings, KPMG National Lead for Cyber Response Services stated “Intelligence of this level is a complete game changer. Many companies state they provide threat intelligence, but this is the first time I have seen actionable intelligence that can be used to potentially identify corporate ransomware attacks before they happen.”
Moreover, some of the tracked botnets have a unique relationship with some of the monitored ransomware families. Therefore, by timely identifying botnet activity in their systems, AdvIntel’s clients can identify and potentially avert tremendous losses from ransomware attacks.
Incident response case support through Andariel enables a corporate cyber investigation team by providing immediate information on the “patient zero”, the way cyber infection spreads through the system, as well as the vulnerabilities which lead to the compromise. Andariel aims to significantly decrease the time and resources spent on investigations, as well as to decrease the insurance claims and coverage of the remediation effort.
AdvIntel and KPMG will jointly go to market to combat cyber incidents, by providing early-warning alerting, applied threat detection, and long-term strategic threat intelligence. AdvIntel and KPMG are already working jointly with several cyber insurance providers around the threat prevention and loss avoidance needs of their customer base.
