PIASC Selects MUTTII Detection and Response to Secure Critical Data and Systems

The threat-agnostic approach neutralizes ransomware and zero-day threats while improving boot times and system performance

BACKGROUND

Printing Industries Association, Inc. of Southern California (PIASC), the trade association of the commercial printing and graphic arts community in Southern California and Clark County, Nevada, has implemented Muttii Detection and Response software. The solution, using OS-Centric Positive Security, was selected to provide a proactive last line of defense to secure critical data and systems. PIASC administers the Printing Industries Benefit Trust, which provides competitive employee benefits to over 1,000 member companies and their 21,000 employees and dependents. That means it must comply with HIPAA requirements governing the security of the protected health information (PHI).

INCREASING RISKS AND COSTS

Even in the wake of significant data breaches that continue to make news headlines worldwide, organizations across all industries continue to struggle to mitigate the damage a breach can cause. IBM Security’s 2018 Cost of a Data Breach Study found that the average cost of a data breach globally is $3.86 million, a 6.4 percent increase from its 2017 report. In the U.S., the news is even worse, with the average total cost equaling $7.91 million.

For roughly the past 25 years, the security industry has been focused on preventing hackers from passing the gates. This perpetual cat-and-mouse game cannot be won. Today, organizations and individuals feel under siege and less secure than ever. After learning that several member companies had experienced costly breaches, PIASC realized it was time for a new approach.

PIASC BEFORE MUTTII

Prior to implementing Muttii Detection and Response, PIASC was concerned about its exposure to ransomware and malware attacks. It was managing as many as five disparate endpoint security solutions, most with overlapping functionality, in a clear case of “the more, the better” that did not address the exposure but frustrated users with performance lags and boot times of up to eight minutes. To solve these issues, PIASC started evaluating how to:

  • Implement industry-leading protection for endpoint devices and servers
  • Improve desktop/laptop performance and employee productivity
  • Eliminate on-premises infrastructure that the organization would have to maintain
  • Achieve hands-off management via a vendor-provided service, alleviating the strain on the IT staff

THE SOLUTION: MUTTII DETECTION AND RESPONSE

Muttii Detection and Response addresses the biggest cybersecurity challenge in today’s digital era: effectively dealing with both current and emerging threats, thus ending the futile cat-and-mouse game. This unique threat-agnostic approach has proven to neutralize ransomware, evasive malware, and zero-day threats successfully. Muttii Detection and Response complements all existing endpoint protection tools, creating true defense in depth security.

PIASC selected Muttii Detection and Response and deployed it within days, reducing the endpoint security footprint to just Muttii and an antivirus solution. Boot times and system performance have significantly improved. To alleviate the responsibilities of the internal IT staff, PIASC chose to leverage the Managed Detection and Response services so Muttii’s cybersecurity experts can handle all upgrades, maintenance, and security issues.

According to Lou Caron, President and CEO of PIASC, “When I came on board, I had an opportunity to rebuild our infrastructure from a clean slate. We believe that the best way to minimize risk is to complement reactive defenses (antivirus) with advanced proactive defenses (Muttii Detection and Response), thereby implementing a complete approach. Anything less creates unwanted exposure.” He continues, “Any organization handling PHI and PII should consider the last line of defense approach of Muttii Detection and Response to avoid data breaches and business interruption caused by ransomware and evasive malware.”
