Grand Theft Data

Data theft is happening at a record pace. There are plenty of folks in denial that it won’t happen to them. Almost any security team will tell you it is a matter of time before someone makes it through your defenses.

You’ve hopefully had tools in place to detect them but those fail too because once you detect them it is a race against time to keep them isolated and not let them exfiltrate your data. With dwell time of infiltrators measured in days or months, there’s a good chance they’ve already taken what they want and just seeing what else you’ll give them.

How We Stop Grand Theft Data

enSilo stops grand theft data before it begins. When your defense in depth fails, we’re there to make sure your data stays where it belongs. There’s no worries. After that it only matters if you want to figure out how they got in.

We respond when someone tries to take something. You see, when an application wants to connect outside your network they have to go through the operating system on that pc or server. Want to change a file remotely? Go through the OS.

The is the common denominator throughout every single case. You can’t hide from enSilo because we’re already there. They won’t see us and even if they did it wouldn’t matter because trying to effect the operating system remotely is a big no-no for enSilo. Heck, we even protect Windows XP and with no impact on the device.

Regardless if adversaries are trying to take a 17k file or 100GB, enSilo keeps grand theft data from becoming a reality.


When you take away the ability of adversaries to take or tamper with your data you not only gain the warm fuzzy of knowing your operational risk and threat surface is down to the radar reflection of an African swallow in flight, but you also get the value back in cold hard cash.

Okay so maybe not cash specifically but your operating expenses will now be going down instead of up.

Sure, the threat level is going to keep everyone busy but with enSilo there’s a lot you gain in keeping not only costs in line but everyone’s morale pointed in the right direction.


Zero Day Malware:
Not Tested On Animals.
You’re the First.

Zero days. They’re the bane of cyber security. Unfortunately, they’re going to continue no matter how much we’d like them to stop.

The problem with zero days is that someone has to be first to find them (hence the name). So if you’re the first then it will probably walk right through your defenses until behavioral or signature-based applications or highly-trained cyber security professionals catch them. Even if you torture your staff with sandboxing solutions it might just walk right on through.

Once caught then it is up to the various folks like operating systems manufacturers or plug-in writers to fix it and send out a patch. Not naming names here but you probably know them well. Then you have to struggle to get all your endpoints patched. That struggle is real.

At the very least, signature-based detection platforms have to be updated and sent out with dire warnings. Behavioral detection platforms might catch them.

Might not. “It depends,” is the answer you’ll get when you ask about them being found on your network. What you do get is hundreds of “maybe” alerts. Go chase those down for fun.


In the meantime, bad actors can have field day. And they’re pretty good at that. They don’t have change management boards or working groups. They just use it as soon as they figure it out.


Hence, you might not be the first exactly but it might not matter. Unless you have enSilo.
We’re not going to say that we’ll stop zero days. We don’t. We don’t because they don’t matter to enSilo. We stop data exfiltration. We already assume you’re compromised and work backwards from there. If you stop the bad guys from taking your data you’ve already won. The rest of that testing is not exactly moot but it sure takes the stress out of the whole process.
