SCMagazine.com reported that “Network security controls are no longer reliable or sufficient. They are easily evaded, prone to false positives, and feed a costly ecosystem of alert management and incident response.”  The July 8, 2024 article entitled “Alert overload? There’s a better way to secure your network” (https://tinyurl.com/4jmcb7sz) included these comments:

According to pen testing by Positive Technologies, an external attacker can breach an organization’s network perimeter in 93% of cases. This is unacceptable, and you no longer need to settle for it. For the past six years, the technologists at Trinity Cyber have been working obsessively to invent a new and better way to detect and truly prevent cyber attacks at the perimeter. 

It is now possible to open, fully inspect, and edit full-session network traffic with a capability fast and accurate enough to run inline. Previously thought impossible, this new capability is now the most effective anti-hacking tool in existence. The company calls it Full Content Inspection (FCI), and it is unlike any other security control. It is a new capability—a full-session, parsed content, active sensor that produces better, more reliable and more enduring security results by applying a different form of threat-identification logic enabled by a different kind of engineering. You can use it instead of or in addition to your current network controls. 

With this new approach, detection accuracy jumps through the roof and false positives drop below one percent. It accurately detects and stops every Common Vulnerability and Exposure (CVE) on the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) Known Exploited Vulnerability (KEV) list, every time. It’s not too good to be true. It’s real, and it works.
