Grow your users into security assets!
A lack of end-user security awareness is a symptom, not the cause, of IT security concerns. When users are victimized as part of phishing, ransomware, or other attacks, it hurts the organization's productivity. Unfortunately, this can cause end-users to become embarrassed, defensive, and withdraw from IT security staff members, rather than learn from the experience.
At ContexSure Networks, we believe end-users can learn about security and become a powerful line of defense for your organization with the right outreach, communication, and service resolution. We believe in "teachable moments" where end-users can be receptive to IT security messaging as part of their workflows. With ContexSure, we engage users and help them see that IT security is an ally, not an obstacle.
Bring PEACE to your users and your network
The Policy Enforcement and Access Control for End-points (PEACE) system tackles three major needs for organizations:
- End-User Security Engagement: Mandatory training rarely has an impact on organizational security. Organizations need end-users to understand how they fit into the organization's security defenses and what they should be doing as they interact with potentially risky outsiders. They also need a good working relationship with IT so they know how to get help.
- Detailed Understanding of the Network, Users, and Applications: To make good decisions, IT needs an operating context. Who is doing what? What software is involved? Did this come from an email link? What was in that email? Do we have history with the outside entity? What is the business need? Does our internal user understand and practice good operational security?
- Rapid Security Decision Making: IT is always over-worked and under-resourced. IT staffers must make decisions quickly and accurately. They need information provided in context with tools to rapidly turn decisions into policy. They need tools to provide users with relevant and useful feedback and continue building the end-user relationship, even in a hectic setting.
With PEACE, your organization will get important benefits:
Engaged and Empowered End-Users
Detailed Understanding of the User's Context
Rapid, Organization-Wide System Management
