Why Siometrix

For Senior Executives

So why will senior executives be interested in deploying Siometrix?

There is a multitude of reasons.

It is no secret that cyber insurance premiums are going up by the hour due to the high regularity and frequency of high-profile attacks. Therefore, it is natural that cyber insurers carefully consider their risk when they insure an organization.

Identity and Access Management has many security components. They are securing employee, customer and administrator accounts. In addition, security controls must be put in place to ensure that any attack on them can be detected before harm is done. Then a team needs to monitor to check that the attacks are detected. If the monitoring team gets many false alarms, they are fatigued and can miss actual attacks. Finally, if the attack did happen, a separate team is required to recover from it. Any efficiency in the strength of the account protection can trigger considerable savings down the line. Siomterix can significantly strengthen account security, thereby bringing in much-needed savings.

Are you wondering how much you could save?

Here is a calculator that computes your potential annual savings in Identity and Access Management (in-house or outsourced) by deploying Siometrix.

 

What is in it for the cybersecurity Subject Matter Experts?

Cybersecurity experts and their teams get their hands dirty and want to understand what they can derive from Siometrix deployment. Rightly so. They are the people on the ground protecting their organizations from cyber attacks.

Siometrix can be applied on mobile phones, laptops, desktops, IoT devices and many other electronic devices. It can also be used for Virtual Machines, software identity, API security and the like.

Therefore, by deploying Siometrix, the organization can reduce the impact or even prevent some of the cyber attacks. Broadly, they can be categorized as account hacks, OT network hacks, BGP protocol hacks, transaction server hacks, external software hacks and mobile phone hacks. Each of these hacks has further sub-categories shown on the adjoining diagram. The extent of protection provided depends on the deployment details and the actual type of hack.
