CERTIHASH announces opportunity for organizations to learn, obtain, and utilize experience on critical information security aspects of blockchain infrastructure
TAMWORTH, NEW HAMPSHIRE, UNITED STATES, November 7, 2022 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, the team behind the new cybersecurity application CERTIHASH Sentinel Node announced an Enterprise Pilot and Government Proof-of-Concept program to introduce Sentinel Node as an immediate and available solution towards near real-time detection of network anomalies and events including a potential data breach.
CERTIHASH ‘Sentinel Node’, is the first of a suite of five blockchain-empowered enterprise cybersecurity applications based upon the NIST cybersecurity framework and built-in collaboration of IBM Consulting.
Currently, the average time to detect a network intrusion is 212 days, these hacks also carry a heavy cost, averaging $9 million USD for any breach that lasts over 30 days which does not include additional reputation costs that an organization most likely will incur.
It’s not a question of if an organization will be hacked, it’s a question of when. This is due to an over-reliance on third parties within the legacy data management and security ecosystem.— Gregory Ward, Co-Founder and Chief Development Officer at SmartLedger
According to Key Cybersecurity Statistics, every 39 seconds one cyber-attack takes place worldwide. Globally one ransomware attack occurs every 14 seconds. Cybercrimes have led to damages worth $2 trillion so far – and this based off the 10% of cybercrimes that are even reported.
“We can all agree, it’s not a question of if an organization will be hacked, it’s a question of when. This is due to an over-reliance on third parties within the legacy data management and security ecosystem.” said Gregory Ward, Co-founder and Chief Development Officer at SmartLedger.
CERTIHASH Sentinel Node is built on next-generation infrastructure, powered by a global enterprise-blockchain, and serves as a network security assurance tool, silently hashing records in real-time, waiting for an unauthorized change, and providing real-time alerts if one is detected.
As we discovered with more notably known cyber incidents such as the recent SolarWinds hack, a single breach can cause massive disruption to thousands of enterprises and government agencies worldwide.
Hackers were able to compromise the data, networks, and systems of more than 30,000 public and private organizations — including local, state, and federal agencies. The breach also allowed hackers to potentially gain access to the data and networks of their customers and partners as well — enabling affected victims to grow exponentially from there.
“When a network compromise occurs, the impact is remarkably like a bulb blowing on a vintage set of serial Christmas lights; every connected bulb goes out, forcing an intensive search. The impact of a cyber-breach does not just affect the initial victim, but every associated network and system. This is a legacy core infrastructure problem and unfortunately cannot be fixed without first replacing the infrastructure.” said Bryan Daugherty, CCI, CBI, SME, Co-Founder of CERTIHASH.
“Blockchain’s trustless model is resilient and secure, more similar to a parallel circuit in the Christmas light example, always providing its own integrity and availability. When combined with blockchain’s write-once, read-many (WORM) data capabilities, we can ensure that no evidence has been removed and all activity is traceable – this includes real-time alerts from monitored logs and devices.” Continued Daugherty.
“Security and risk management professionals require comprehensive threat detection solutions that are powerful, flexible, and fast. We must move away from the dated architectures of traditional SIEMs, and I believe that these two new Enterprise and Government Programs will provide the perfect opportunity to learn more about next generation blockchain data management.”
Live testing of Sentinel Node began with strategic partners in early September after completion of the Sentinel Node MVP with IBM Consulting.
Testing has provably demonstrated a powerful advance in event and anomaly detection times. Sentinel Node was shown to be able to continuously monitor logs at .2 second intervals (average duration of a human eye blink), which includes both log collection and analysis. To place this in perspective, CERTIHASH Sentinel Node is
– 720X faster than today’s mission critical detection averages.
– 1440X faster than today’s advanced detection averages.
– 4032X faster than today’s standard detection averages.
Beyond the major improvement upon current detection times, Sentinel Node helps in a host of other areas:
- Native data privacy and protection features
- single plane of glass with full alert prioritization
- no third party required, no need to transfer or send private data
- flexible integration with diverse ecosystem of security, IoT, and network products
- simple licensing with true cost dependability
