FCI: A Holistic Approach toward Endpoint Security

The Equifax data breach that goes down in history as one of the most far-reaching and damaging cyberattacks exposed the sensitive data of around 147 million people. The breach occurred after Equifax security officials failed to install a security patch, giving leeway for bad actors to gain access to their systems. Unfortunately, the number of such incidents has only increased since then as the attack surface has expanded. In addition, there has been a significant increase of unknown and unmanaged devices handling enterprise data outside the corporate networks.

“You can do the 99 things needed to keep your systems safe, however, if you neglect one security component, you can put your entire environment at risk,” says Brian Edelman, the CEO of FCI.

For the leading cybersecurity service provider in Financial Services, FCI’s prime focus has always been on endpoint protection. They go by the principle; “If the endpoint is not secure, nothing is secure.” The company integrates best-of-breed technologies, cybersecurity best practices, industry expertise, and innovation to protect clients and their information. FCI delivers cloud-based managed endpoint and network protection.

FCI identifies unknown devices accessing enterprise systems of private data, audits endpoints, and automates the enforcement of the security settings and software to ensure that all connected devices are secure and compliant. By leveraging automation, FCI eliminates third-party risks commonly associated with security assessments.
FCI’s assessment reports provide evidence of compliance typically required during an audit, an exam, or a breach. These reports ensure that FCI clients can demonstrate proof that they adhere to regulations, cyber insurance, and information security policies.

FCI’s evidence-based audits and logs have been key factors in breach investigations for their clients. One example a few years back happened when one of FCI’s customers was in the process of upgrading Windows7 to Windows10. This client was using Office 365, and the IT team disabled multi-factor authentication to make it easier for the upgrade. During the process, an employee used a browser to log into Office 365 and clicked on a phishing link that asked for credentials. Quickly enough, bad actors attacked the system and tricked one of the firm’s customersinto wiring them money. Having realized that the money had been stolen, the client called FCI for incident response. FCI tracked all the logs and provided them with an evidence of compliance report that helped the FBI with the information to catch the bad actors, recover the money and make sure the client was not implicated in the process.
