Three former National Security Agency officers have created what they think will be part of the solution to the cyber-attack problem, with Area 1 Security.
The average time it takes to resolve on attack is 32 days, costing an average of $32,469 per day. Area 1 hopes to catch viruses way before then. “What we try to do is provide insights about what users are doing on the web that would lead to clicking on the link and bringing malicious things into your network,” explained Falkowitz. Instead of cleaning up a malware mess after it’s way too late, Area 1 will alert companies about unsafe sites that employees are visiting, or recommend defenses for parts of their web network.
