SafeGuard Cyber provides digital risk protection in latest release

SafeGuard Cyber, provider of a SaaS platform dedicated to managing the full lifecycle of digital risk protection driving digital communications, is introducing new capabilities to its flagship collaboration, chat, and social media security platform.

SafeGuard 7.6 now performs threat analysis on managed social and digital accounts to detect and remediate malware, including zero day exploits and associated messaging, file attachments, and links that are shared on these channels.

Rapid adoption of social collaboration channels, coupled with the quick migration to work-from-home during the COVID pandemic, has created a broad attack surface with huge risk exposure.

Social, mobile chat, and digital channels are subject to malware-based attacks, such as spear-phishing, ransomware, and APT cyber-espionage attacks, and are proving to be a more vulnerable attack vector compared to email.

SafeGuard Cyber is proven to systematically secure a comprehensive set of social, mobile chat, and digital collaboration channels against malware attacks.

This addition to the platform automatically scans file attachments and links for malware and zero-day exploits. Sandboxing features force execution of all possible malware code paths without exposing the enterprise to risk, thus increasing the probability of detecting and stopping evasive zero-day attacks.

The benefits of threat analysis within SafeGuard Cyber 7.6 include:

  • Improved visibility. Threat activity occurring within messaging across 50+ social and digital channels including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and LinkedIn; mobile apps like WhatsApp, and collaboration tools such as Slack, Microsoft Teams and Salesforce.
  • Advanced Defense. SafeGuard Cyber takes immediate action to quarantine files and links associated with malware indicators of compromise and stop these attacks before they can spread to other accounts or propagate to physical endpoints.
  • Extended Protection. SafeGuard Cyber 7.6 improves the security posture of the enterprise by extending digital risk protection and alert notifications on malware attacks to EDRs, SIEMs, SOCs for attack correlation and comprehensive threat response.
