The Latest Strategies to Bite Back at Cyberattacks

February 10, 2023

By Hayden Specht, Hybrid Cloud Specialist, CPP Associates

As cyberthreats continue to plague businesses of all shapes and sizes, it is important to evaluate the latest options on the market to help secure your business to the best of your ability. Ransomware attacks are up 96% as of 2022, with 76% of those organizations being negatively impacted by ransomware or bad actors. CPP Associates along with our security partners go to battle for our customers every day to ensure we provide them with the highest level of security and remediation plans. At the end of the day, it’s not a matter of if you’re attacked, but when, and how often.

As time goes on, organizations of all shapes and sizes are being forced to do more with less. IT departments are feeling the burden of this more than any other. CPP Associates’ top security partner, Arctic Wolf is leading the way in helping organizations become more secure than ever, without the need to hire a 24/7/365 security and monitoring team. There are plenty of cybersecurity vendors in the marketplace. Let’s explore why we believe Arctic Wolf is the best choice out there.

Battling “Alert Fatigue” is a Good Place to Start

With cybersecurity front and center on every company’s radar, it’s not unusual to find organizations with a plethora of best-of-breed tools for end points, network switches, applications, cloud, on prem servers, storage, etc. Think about it. Hundreds of apps and tools all monitoring, reporting and ALERTING.

The result? Alert Fatigue. There are so many alerts, you can no longer tell the fake ones from the real ones or you just can’t keep up. It’s a modern take on the old “Boy Who Cried Wolf” fable.

That’s the perfect transition into what makes Arctic Wolf different. They provide around the clock monitoring by humans and AI analysis to detect sinister threats and immediately resolve them before they can do any harm.  They offer a Concierge Delivery model that oversees a massive security operation that can be customized for each customer’s unique environment, from endpoints and the cloud, to on prem hardware and throughout the entire network.

For an organization to do this themselves, they would need to invest millions of dollars a year in personnel and additional tools. Arctic Wolf can perform this service for less than one-tenth of that cost.

Backing their Commitment with a $1 Million Insurance Policy

Last summer, Arctic Wolf announced the release of enhanced tools and programs for Tetra Defense’s (an Arctic Wolf company) MyCyber platform, designed to help businesses more effectively build business resilience as well as address the evolving demands of insurance carriers. This includes a Security Operations Warranty for qualified Arctic Wolf customers who can receive a $1 million service warranty benefit to support their recovery activities, legal and regulatory expenses, and other associated business costs in the event of a successful cyberattack.

Plus, given the highly successful track record of Arctic Wolf Security Operations Cloud, their customers can receive discounted rates at select cyber insurance carriers.

All in all, it’s an iron-clad solution that addresses the full scope of a company’s cybersecurity needs.
