Chris Gerrits – US Cyber Soilder , the father of Infocyte

Chris Gerrits , the 10 intense years of US Cyber Battle is never over with Christ , after came home he continue his battles with Infocyte – a cyber threat hunter

Reports of network intrusions have spiked in recent years resulting in millions in financial loses, theft of intellectual property, and exposure of customer information. The groups responsible for these high profile attacks are organized and can persist in your organization’s endpoints without detection for months, sometimes years.
It’s clear that current real-time security processes are simply ineffective at detecting post breach activity, especially as time passes after the initial compromise. Don’t wait for your customers or the authorities to tell you that you are the victim of a cyberattack. Simply layering on increasing numbers of defensive tools does not deliver total security. You need to proactively hunt for hidden threats that have bypassed these defenses to fully protect your organization.
Infocyte HUNT provides an easy-to-use, yet powerful solution to limit risk and eliminate dwell time by enabling an organization’s own IT and security professionals to proactively discover malware and persistent threats, active or dormant, that have successfully breached existing defenses and established a beachhead within your network.

 

 

 

 

Kaspersky: You can trust us despite US government ban

Kaspersky: You can trust us despite US government ban

He had this appeal to his American customers: “Please stay with us – you can trust us.”

While he described the revenue his firm earns from the US government as “close to zero”, the wider US market account for about the quarter of Kaspersky’s sales

But Mr. Kaspersky said the Americans could have full access to his company’s activities: “We will open every door, check everything. We don’t have any secrets, we don’t do anything bad against our customers and against governments.”

That means that a Russian business offering cyber-security software may struggle to convince American consumers to buy products that their own government suggests are unsafe.

The problem for the company is that Russia is now seen as a haven for hackers and cyber-criminals, and its government is widely accepted to have interfered in last year’s American presidential election.

Eugene Kaspersky said he wanted relations between the two countries to improve and called for international co-operation on cyber-security – he insisted that “only the bad guys are happy with this situation”.

The Kremlin has criticized the US government’s actions, describing the ban as unfair competition.

The American store chain Best Buy has stopped selling Kaspersky products, but Mr Kaspersky said he had had positive discussions with other retailers.

‘Unfair competition’

“We co-operate with many law enforcement agencies around the world – in the past with the US as well.”

“When they say we have strong ties with Russian espionage it’s not true,” he told me via a video call from Argentina.

But the company’s founder said that while he lived in Moscow and his firm co-operated with Russian law enforcement on cyber-security, there were no deeper ties.

Mr Kaspersky told the BBC that the Trump administration’s move to ban government agencies from using his products was an “uncomfortable situation”. The US has said it is concerned that Kaspersky is vulnerable to influence from the Kremlin.

Eugene Kaspersky has denied that the cyber-security firm he founded is close to the Russian government and insists it poses no danger to its American customers.
