The importance of best-in-class software tools as the front line of a small business cybersecurity framework 

Cyber Hawk is an exceptional foundational tool in a managed security environment that monitors your internal software suite. 

Our most asked questions, answered. 

  • What is Cyber Hawk and why does your business need it?
  • What are the primary business benefits? 
  • How can you deploy Cyber Hawk as part of a robust cybersecurity fortress? 

At Microman, we bring the best products, software tools, and services to bear when we provide IT services to our business clients. And we research those products meticulously. Cyber Hawk is one of those tools.

What is CyberHawk and why does your business need it?

There are essentially two cyber threat perimeters for businesses to be concerned with; one is external, and the other is internal. The two are sometimes hard to distinguish, but your external perimeter is generally your network’s external, or internet-facing, component—i.e. your routers, hubs, switches, internet cable modems, etc. 

Always look at the term “security perimeter” in the abstract though, and not as any sort of physical line of demarcation.  

The external perimeter is where cyber threat protection comes from firewalls, DMZ’s, whitelists, antivirus software, etc. Perimeter security is subject all its own, and we will discuss it in greater detail in subsequent posts. But for now, let’s focus on internal threats.

According to the experts over at RapidFire Tools, a Kaseya subsidiary company, internal threats account for over 70% of successful cyber-attacks. These are threats that would not have been stopped by perimeter security measures.

Internal threats are very serious. They consist of system vulnerabilities like:

  • User access and administrative permissions
  • Application access vulnerabilities (A/D, etc.)
  • Identity and access management
  • OS and patch management inefficiencies
  • Anti-virus inefficiencies
  • Mobile device management (MDM)
  • Web applications

Cyber Hawk combines machine learning and assertive, intelligent monitoring to identify anomalous activity, suspicious changes, and threats caused by misconfigurations. It also provides a double-check into the efficacy of your software license management and patching policies. 

In a nutshell, Cyber Hawk is one of the primary internal security perimeter management tools that we use to protect our customers’ businesses from cyber threats.

What are the business benefits of internal cybersecurity protection? 

The primary benefit of a well-designed and implemented security infrastructure is peace of mind. Peace of mind comes from knowing that your critical business information and assets are protected from internal and external cyber threats. 

That kind of confidence comes from knowing you have the right security management framework in place and that it’s being monitored 24X7 by professionals who understand your business. Cyber Hawk is one very important piece of that puzzle.  

How can you deploy Cyber Hawk as part of a robust cybersecurity fortress? 

Great software tools are important, but they are only part of a comprehensive solution. Great tools only work as expected when implemented by an expert. Cybersecurity expertise, tools, and management can also be very expensive to leverage, and difficult to source.
