SANTA CLARA, CA--(Marketwired - Apr 17, 2014) - Seculert, a leader in advanced threat protection and malware solutions, today announced that ECI Telecom, a leading provider of telecommunications solutions chose Seculert to ensure the company is protected against advanced persistent threats (APTs).
As a large provider of equipment, solutions and services with over 2000 employees all over the globe, the company realized that remote workers and partners could be especially vulnerable to potential attacks. With so many distributed sites and users, ECI needed a flexible, scalable solution that could actively protect the organization from the growing threat of advanced malware and APTs. ECI turned to Seculert's cloud-based Advanced Threat Protection Solution to quickly discover advanced threats across all global remote users and endpoints, without the installation of any software or hardware.
"Without installing anything, Seculert immediately provided a new level of advanced threat protection for all of our employees, including remote sites and users," said Dor Liniado, information security manager at ECI Telecom. "The solution is extremely easy to use and the team did not require any special training. The return on investment was almost instantaneous and Seculert has become a central part of our advanced threat protection strategy.
Using Seculert's Botnet Interception module, ECI was able to define all external facing domains as well as web-based portals in less than ten minutes. Seculert began reporting and quickly identified an infected endpoint that ECI could not detect using their existing network security technologies. The Security Team immediately blocked the botnet on their firewalls and took the infected endpoint offline.
