STAMFORD, Conn., April 18, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- BlackStratus, a leading provider of cloud-based security and compliance technology tailored for both SMBs and large enterprises, announced today the launch of CYBERShark, the first Security Information Event Management (SIEM) platform designed specifically to monitor and remediate cyber security threats and compliance violations within small to midsize businesses. CYBERShark takes BlackStratus' proven enterprise class security and compliance platform, trusted by thousands of large enterprise customers, and delivers it via the cloud to small and midsize businesses at an affordable price point.
Cybercriminals often attack small and midsized businesses to launch attacks against large enterprise targets. In a recent report by the National Security Alliance about the cybersecurity threats on SMBs, the following statistics were given: 71% of data breaches target small businesses; 69% of cyber attacks target retail and restaurants; 96% of data breaches target payment card data; and 60% of small businesses close within six months of experiencing a data breach.
In addition to their own data, most SMBs have access to partners' computer systems and access to their valuable data and intellectual property. Previously the SMB market was unable to afford advanced security and compliance technology because of its enormous cost, leaving only large enterprises the means to afford the only technology capable of identifying cyber security threats in real-time. To address this exponentially growing threat on the SMB market, BlackStratus has engineered its award-winning CYBERShark technology so SMB's can not only afford it, but can receive the same level of protection as the largest enterprises in the world. BlackStratus estimates that 85% of businesses who don't deploy CYBERShark will not be able to identify a threat before it's too late.
"To directly address the growing number of cyber security breaches on small to midsize businesses, we developed CYBERShark, the industry's first SMB security and compliance service that is both affordable and delivers the same level of protection as our large enterprise customers receive," said Dale Cline, CEO of BlackStratus. "At BlackStratus we strive to be an innovator and leader in the cyber security market that transcends the boundaries of traditional on-premise solutions with innovative products that rapidly and dramatically improve security for organizations while leveraging the power of cloud computing to reduce the cost and complexity of maintaining a SIEM infrastructure."
