The Vault

What is the Vault?
The vault is an in-house product developed by Xpand IT to safe guard our customers’ data. One of the downsides of cloud-based backups is that they are susceptible to ransomware. This is because many backup environments are based on Microsoft technologies. The Vault was developed to prevent this by storing your backups in an offline, firmware-based environment. This environment is still based within Tier 1 datacentres, and your backups are always accessible for legitimate reasons. The Vault simply ensures that these backups are not susceptible to ransomware.

Benefits
– Your backups are safeguarded
– Real-time protection for your backups
– If your business is ever the target of ransomware, your backups are still secure

Xpand IT recommend a multi-layered threat protection approach to safeguarding your data.

Canary

What is the Canary?
92% of hacked organisations only become aware of the breach when a third party notifies them (DBIR, 2012)
The Canary, is a honeypot security appliance that aims to give network administrators an early warning when hackers break into their networks by disguising itself as a Windows server, router or other network device.
Attackers prowling a target network look for juicy content. They browse Active Directory for file servers and explore file shares looking for documents, try default passwords against network devices and web services, and scan for open services across the network.
When they encounter a Canary, the services on offer are designed to solicit further investigation, at which point it “chirps”, notifying network administrator of the incident.

Benefits
– Early network intrusion detection
– Allows network administrators to take immediate action
– Prevents theft of your company’s sensitive IP
