QR (quick response) codes were first created in 1994 by an auto company in Japan, Denso Wave. Visually? They look like they were designed by the first inventors of video game graphics. These days you can find them on everything from menus to billboards. Basically, the goal of the QR code is to link an object to a website containing all the information you’d need for that object.

This leads to confusion, which leads to frustration, which can lead to something much, much worse. Something like a breach. Let’s take a moment, then, to review the four most commonly mixed-up and misused security terms in the cybersecurity world.

When you hear the words “brute force," subtlety is probably not the first thing that comes to mind. Indeed, classic brute-force cyber attacks use the most straightforward tactics—trial and error—to gain entry into a protected system. When brute force works, the attack's type, depth, and severity depend on the attacker's goals.

Financial institutions, particularly regional banks and credit unions, are facing challenges both in terms of safeguarding data of their customers and meeting data security compliance standards. Information technology (IT) teams in these institutions are stretched thin. They struggle with needing to meet compliance obligations while simultaneously combatting cyberthreats.

Cybersecurity is a field that requires 24x7 vigilance and constant adaptation. Arctic Wolf’s cloud native platform and Concierge Security® Team delivers uniquely effective solutions.

The cybersecurity industry has an effectiveness problem. New technologies, vendors, and solutions emerge every year—yet, we still see headlines filled with high-profile breaches. Many attacks occur – not because a product failed to raise an alert – they fail because the alert was missed or was not actioned on. To prevent these attacks, the industry needs to adopt a new approach by focusing on security operations. That’s where Arctic Wolf can help.

Arctic Wolf® Platform

Spanning thousands of installations, the Arctic Wolf® Platform processes over 200 billion security events daily. The platform collects and enriches endpoint, network, and cloud telemetry, and then analyzes it with multiple detection engines. Machine learning and custom detection rules then deliver personalized protection for your organization.

While other products have limited visibility, the vendor-neutral Arctic Wolf® Platform enables broad visibility and works seamlessly with existing technology stacks, making it easy to adopt while eliminating blind spots and vendor lock-in.

Concierge Security® Team

Arctic Wolf invented the concept of Concierge Security®. With this delivery model, we pair a team of our security operations experts directly with your IT or security staff. Your Concierge Security® Team gives you 24×7 eyes-on-glass coverage.
