LightCyber‘s “Magna” system is enhancing its advanced hacking recognition capabilities in order to contain and reduce damage done by cyber attacks. It is using Check Point‘s firewall product to achieve this.
LightCyber, a developer of advanced computer hacking recognition systems, and Check Point, announced their co-operation in the construction of an interface between LightCyber’s “Magna” system and Check Point’s firewall product.
Driven and creative hackers are continually on the lookout for new hacking avenues. They often attempt to take over certain end stations and turn them into bases of operation from which they launch more substantial attacks within the corporate network. A hacked end station can enable remotely controlled malicious attacks by cyber criminals.
The interface between LightCyber’s Magna system and Check Point’s firewall product provides the clients of both companies, by the two companies’ own admission, two major advantages: by isolating the damaged end stations, and by shutting down the active control channels, cyber attacks can be stopped before they reach their target. The two systems also provide real-time protection by denying the whole of the organization’s computers access to recently identified hacker-operated control and monitoring sites.
