“CONCEALing” Context Through our Patented SDN
Threat actors can’t attack you if they can’t find you. With an additional layer of protection, you can make it much more difficult for attackers to trace web activity back to your organization or to find cloud applications and infrastructure that are critical to your business.
Conceal’s patented SDN removes digital context and physical attributes from data flowing over the internet and internet-accessible infrastructure. The extra layer of protection minimizes the likelihood of risky traffic compromising your network. In Verizon’s 2022 Data Breach Investigations Report, web applications were the number one vector of entry for bad actors and are connected to the highest number of DoS attacks. The Verizon report found that Basic Web Application Attacks (BWAA) largely focus on attacks that directly target an organization’s most exposed infrastructure, such as Web servers. Conceal’s patented SDN helps to minimize the opportunity for attackers to find exposed infrastructure by increasing privacy using intermediaries to acquire the commercial infrastructure used to implement the network. The dynamic design of our patented SDN removes context and provides extra layers of privacy and security to users and enterprises.
Conceal’s patented SDN helps organizations identify and isolate risky web traffic before it compromises your network through the monitoring capability as part of the additional layer of protection. Additionally, Conceal is able to move identified risky web traffic without affecting a user’s current session. The fidelity of the protection’s ability to monitor and isolate without affecting a user’s ongoing communications helps provide security assurance for web activity. The extra layer of protection moves the web traffic into a remote browser in an isolated environment without a user having to decide if they believe the web traffic is risky.
Our patented SDN encompasses all of Conceal’s offerings; from ConcealBrowse and ConcealSearch to ConcealCloud, our patented SDN was deliberately and carefully intertwined throughout our product suite to bring an unparalleled solution to the market to address web security.
Law Enforcement agencies are faced with the insecurities surrounding intelligence collection. Whether the intelligence collection surrounds dark web monitoring, open-source intelligence, social media research, financial crimes, or internet crimes against children, these investigations come with a level of risk while leveraging the internet.
