Feel Ready for a Disaster? You’re Probably Not

A new Infrascale Survey reports that most small and medium businesses (SMBs) think they’re ready for a disaster, but that at the same time, those same organizations lack disaster recovery plans.  92% of SMB execs said they believe their businesses are prepared to recover from a disaster. But more than a fifth of SMB leaders said they lack a data backup or disaster recovery solution in place.

It’s a troubling statistic, given the increasing risk to an enterprise’s data.  Whether it’s the findings of the newest Verizon Data Breach Incident Report indicating that attacks on web applications have doubled in the most recent year, or the latest studies from Forrester’s newest edition of The State of Application Security, indicating that applications are more vulnerable than ever,  we know cyber threats are putting an organization’s data at the most risk ever.

There’s two key points SMBs should take away from this new survey.  First, your organizations need to be ready with a disaster recovery plan, and second organizations need to understand and improve their security for their applications in order to protect their primary asset, data.

K2’s Security Platform is here to help with latter.

K2’s runtime deterministic application security platform monitors web applications and has a deep understanding of the application’s control flows, DNA and execution.  By validating an application’s control flows, deterministic security is based on the application itself, rather than relying on past attacks to determine a zero day attack.  By using deterministic security K2 can detect sophisticated zero day attacks and also protect the application from the risks listed in the OWASP Top Ten.

K2’s Next Generation Application Workload Protection Platform addresses today’s need for runtime security in an easy to use, easy to deploy solution.  K2’s unique deterministic security detects new attacks without the need to rely on past attack knowledge, is lightweight, and adds under a millisecond of latency to the running application.  To aid in quick remediation of vulnerabilities, K2 also provides detailed attack telemetry including the code module and line number being in the code being attacked, while at the same time integrating with leading firewalls to do real time attacker blocking.

Change how you develop and protect your applications.

K2 Cyber Security delivers the Next Generation Application Workload Protection Platform to secure web applications and container workloads against sophisticated attacks including OWASP Top 10 and memory-based attacks, and provides additional vulnerability detection. K2’s Platform is deployed on production servers for runtime protection of applications and on pen-testing/pre-production servers to identify the location of the vulnerable code in real-time. K2’s solution generates almost no false alerts, eliminates breaches due to zero-day attacks, detects attacks missed by traditional security tools including Web Application Firewalls, and dramatically reduces security cost. K2 Cyber Security is located in the USA, and provides cyber security solutions globally.
