BlackFog’s Multi Layered Approach to Cybersecurity
Today’s cyber threat landscape is more sophisticated than ever which is why a multi layered approach is so crucial to solving the problem. Hackers are attacking from every angle, profiling your behaviour as you browse online, hijacking your CPU, stealing your personal data and injecting malware through advertising. It is no longer enough to rely on traditional security solutions like Firewall’s and Anti-Virus/Malware solutions to protect you from modern threats.
Many cyber security companies can tell you when an attack has taken place or when data breach has occurred. Few provide a preventative, multi-layered approach that can combat the growing number of threats we see today. Most solutions either focus on trying to stop an attacker from getting in (Firewalls), or after they have already infiltrated your device (AntiVirus). We know that it’s inevitable that hackers are going to get in. The focus should be on neutralizing them before they can do any damage and steal any data.
BlackFog specifically focuses on prevention. By carefully monitoring the data flowing off the device it is able to identify in real-time when an attacker is trying to remove data and immediately block the outbound traffic.
This unique approach includes 12 layers of defense, targeting multiple points of the attack life-cycle as described below.
Direct IP addresses are rarely used for legitimate purposes, BlackFog blocks these direct IP addresses automatically.
BlackFog prevents data collection and profiling by Facebook, whether you are a Facebook user or not.
Cryptocurrency mining (aka Cryptojacking) is growing exponentially as a way for cyber criminals to make money. Rather than using their own computing resources, power and equipment they would rather use yours. BlackFog has embedded protection for cryptocurrency mining to ensure you remain in control of your device.
When cyber criminals target your machine over the network, they commonly use firewall ports they know are already open, such as HTTP and HTTPS. They use these ports to send non-HTTP(s) traffic back to their Command and Control Servers (CC Servers) to steal data. BlackFog detects these messages and blocks them before they can do any damage.
We know that many attack vectors come from a small number of countries such as Russia, China and the Ukraine. BlackFog provides a geofence to prevent your data from being sent to specific countries.
The Dark Web is the primary channel for activating ransomware and stealing your data. BlackFog blocks all traffic through the Dark Web.
PowerShell is most commonly used to launch a fileless attack which are 10x more likely to succeed. BlackFog detects these attacks in real-time and immediately terminates them.
With more than 26 million blocks, BlackFog mitigates phishing attacks through email and the Web.
BlackFog eliminates the collection, accumulation and distribution of your personal data to protect your privacy.
BlackFog eliminates forensic data collection on your device to keep your privacy intact.
With 1 in 5 cyber-attacks now occurring through advertising networks, BlackFog blocks more 99% of all online advertising to mitigate this threat.
BlackFog eliminates the collection of browsing and behavioural data while you are browsing the Internet.
