Accelerate Threat Detection and Response

There is no way to prevent a dedicated, patient attacker from breaching your network. Relying on preventive tools that sit at the network edge is not enough—you need cyber security threat detection inside your network as well.

Zartek Global’s USM platform puts built-in, essential security controls and seamlessly integrated threat intelligence, powered by Zartek Global Labs, into the hands of government IT teams with limited resources. You can now deploy a single platform that accelerates threat detection and response by showing the most important threats and how to mitigate them, on day one.

Zartek Global USM utilizes a Kill Chain Taxonomy, which makes threat detection and prioritization easy. Our Kill Chain Taxonomy allows you to focus your attention on the most important threats by classifying attacks into five categories. It tells your IT team what are the most important threats facing your network right now.

Increase Situational Awareness with Integrated Threat Intelligence

Government agencies with limited IT staff often lack time to research new threats, or access to threat intelligence. This prevents them from being able to keep up with the constantly evolving threat landscape and answer critical questions about threats targeting their network, such as “who, what, why, and how”.

We understand that you lack the budget to hire dedicated security analysts to research data from your point-product security tools. The Zartek Global Labs team acts like an extension of your IT team by conducting threat research and publishing weekly updates to the USM correlation rules that sift through the mountains of data in your log files to alert you of critical indicators of compromise.

Reduce Costs,
Reduce Complexity

Zartek Global USM’s unified approach puts all the security controls you need at your fingertips. Its flexible, open architecture also lets you integrate and correlate events from existing security products into its correlation engine for analysis. This single view accelerates and simplifies your ability to detect and respond to threats while also protecting your investment in legacy security tools.

Eliminating the manual monitoring of security point-products enables you to redeploy personnel to more productive tasks like responding to threats. Zartek Global USM lets you make better use of scarce human resources by freeing them from the burden of managing separate security products to execute your cybersecurity strategy.

Improve Regulatory and Policy Compliance

Government agencies must meet a wide array of standards for information security controls and risk management, including DIACAP / DIARMF, DISA STIGs, CNSS 1253, NIST, PCI and more. Your IT team doesn’t have the time or resources to manually manage the network, monitor its security, and measure and report on cyber security policy compliance. USM automates and simplifies these manual processes, putting time back in your team’s day.

Zartek Global USM continually monitors and evaluates your security controls, identifies and reports on important audit events, and alerts you to events that require immediate action. You can customize its flexible executive dashboard and reporting engine to demonstrate compliance with the specific standards required for your agency, and built-in reports are provided for many common compliance requirements.

Detect, Prioritize, and Respond to Threats Targeting Your Critical Systems Faster and More Effectively

Improving the cyber security of banks and credit unions continues to challenge many IT organizations. Regional banks and credit unions in particular often lack the resources to keep up with the increased sophistication of the threats targeting their networks.

These smaller financial services organizations don’t have the budget to hire dedicated security practitioners or invest in the diverse security controls needed to detect and respond to threats quickly.

They also lack the ability to respond quickly to changes in the regulatory environment, such as the FFIEC (Federal Financial Institutions Examination Council) Cyber Assessment Tool that measures cybersecurity preparedness.

The Zartek Global USM platform enables bank and credit union IT teams with limited resources to improve their bank network security on day one.

In as little as one hour, you will be identifying the most important threats targeting your network and using integrated threat intelligence to help you respond quickly and effectively.

Zartek Global USM™ delivers the banking cyber security you need in three key areas:

Cyber Threat Detection

Automated Threat Detection & Response

Targeted attacks and security breaches have been rising dramatically at higher education institutions. The presence of valuable intellectual property at these institutions, the high numbers of users bringing their own devices to campus networks, and the susceptibility of student users to phishing scams via social media, all conspire to make higher education an enticing target for bad actors. On top of that, the unique nature of these colleges and universities, with their tradition of openness, their need for international internet connections, and their need to maintain the privacy of users, makes university information security a difficult challenge.

Zartek Global USM is the perfect solution to deliver on the security needs of higher education institutions. USM gives you everything you need to monitor your network, detect malicious activity, prioritize risk and respond to threats on day one. USM delivers asset discovery, vulnerability assessment, intrusion detection, behavioral monitoring and security information and event management (SIEM) all in a single application. By building in the essential security capabilities, Zartek Global USM significantly reduces complexity and reduces deployment time so that you can go from installation to first insight in about an hour.

Comprehensive Compliance Capabilities

Higher education institutions also need to meet a number of regulatory compliance guidelines, including FERPA, HIPAA, PCI, GLBA and SOX. FERPA compliance is one of the most critical, as it pertains to the privacy of student records. There are a number of elements to FERPA compliance, but a frequently misunderstood area concerns the log requirements. FERPA requires institutions maintain logs of who has authorized access to student records, and mandates requirements around user access to those records. Therefore, as a higher education institution, you need to ensure you have the technologies and procedures in place to provide this log maintenance and access control.

Zartek Global USM delivers key capabilities to help you achieve FERPA compliance. USM features a logger as one of its main architectural components which stores log files and other data for extended periods of time. The USM platform also has the ability to digitally sign the logs at the line level, ensuring that the logs you have stored have not been modified since their creation. In addition, USM allows for data integration from legacy security tools to ensure you can meet additional compliance requirements.

USM also offers hundreds of built-in compliance reports for managing your HIPAA, PCI, GLBA, or SOX programs. These reports are automatically updated as asset and vulnerability assessment data changes, and you can quickly customize them based on your own compliance priorities.

Integrated Threat Intelligence

Threat intelligence is an essential component to any effective security program. And very often, it is too resource intensive and too costly for organizations, particularly higher education institutions, to invest in effective threat intelligence. That’s where the Threat Intelligence delivered by Zartek Global steps in. Zartek Global collects millions of threat indicators daily, including data from the Open Threat Exchange (OTX), the world’s first truly open threat intelligence community.

The Zartek Global Labs team curates the data and combines it with additional information about attackers’ tools, infrastructure, and methods to detect malicious behaviors — true threat intelligence. This enables the Zartek Global Labs team to continuously tune the USM platform to detect emerging threats. The Labs team incorporates their research into the library of over 2,700 customizable correlation rules that are included with the USM platform, eliminating the need for you to conduct the research on your own.
