Zero Trust & Resilience Product Design - Essential to Success

– In early 2021, some customers were receiving Windows updates which were crashing their systems. Cyber Crucible simply would not die, and would not let the Operating System completely crash and reboot. Event logs demonstrated every other program died, leaving a non-responsive system with a black screen, and Cyber Crucible beaconing to the server.
Speed & Efficiency Resilience
Attacker tool evolution has dramatically increased the processing speed of their extortion operations. They have also matured their operations on an infected system, where they can have a “controller” program to spawn many malware programs. If one is killed, the controller replaces it. Their proven strategy is to conduct their desired operations before even automated defenses can catch up to them. Defenses do not catch up until the exortionists have accomplished their goals.
Cyber Crucible software is developed using advanced, highly efficient designs to ensure a large attack will not overwhelm analysis and response. Response times continue to be fast enough to ensure data is not extorted, even under concerted attack. This design takes special care not to overwhelm system resources while defending the customer.
When this type of attack occurs, users often notice system sluggishness due to the increasingly aggressive (but unsuccessful) attacker automated attempts to regain control of the system.
