Governments are one step ahead of dataleaks with the RedSocks solution

Governments, including municipalities are a more and more attractive target for cybercriminals. As governments store extremely sensitive data, malware developers are customizing code to derive data.

Protect your data

Digital citizen files have become part of our daily reality. Governments, municipalities and citizen services need sensitive data in order to do their daily jobs. However, the data needs to travel over the internet to different locations, giving cybercriminals a chance to intercept it.

 

The challenges

Aging Technology and equipment

Governments and municipalities are more susceptible to these attacks due to aging technologies.

Compliancy and regulation

With data breaches expected to rise, government agencies, both at EU and national levels are imposing regulations (such as the EU GDPR and Wet Meldplicht Datalekken) that are broader in reach and with more penalties than ever before. Governments have an first need to be fully compliant.

Not enough trained information security officers

A critical task during security incident response is detecting that an incident has occurred. ID work is challenging due to expertise demands and its highly collaborative nature. ID requires significant expertise, both technical and organizational.

Redsocks helps to be compliant automatically

Improve your cyber security

Redsocks not only is the #1 in breach detection, but also is the only one offering a full help with follow up in case of an unexpected breach. Through the forensically sound storage of data (up to 3 years) all outgoing data can be checked back in history and possible leaks precisely identified to help notify appropriate authorities, the victims and mitigate the damage and avoid penalties

Be techically compliant to the GDPR legislation

With the RedSocks Solution you will simplify data breach reporting, enable data breach notifications, develop annual compliancy statements, undertake regular compliancy audits and forensically store your data for 36 months.

The Solution

The RedSocks Malicious Threat Detection is a solution which analyses digital traffic flows in real-time. Malicious traffic is detected by using NetFlow and IPFIX. The RedSocks MTD is fed continuously by the Malware Intelligence Team which compiles the risk lists and algorithms. The RedSocks MTD can generate malicious lists on its own by using Heuristics technologies.

We value your privacy

RedSocks believes corporate privacy to be paramount. Our systems and the flow monitoring systems have thus been developed to secure privacy to the utmost. RedSocks thus monitors flowdata (metadata) rather than content, so that sensitive corporate data always remains confdential. By monitoring bad neighbourhoods on the internet, RedSocks is able to detect previously unknown malicious traffic which is paramount when it comes to protecting sensitive medical records.
