SACRAMENTO, Calif., Aug. 12, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- After years of experience, research and frontline technology, Cyber Black Ops, Inc. announces the North American launch of FireDragon, the best answer to the growing cyber attack invasion on U.S. industry. FireDragon provides quality cyber security to small and mid-sized businesses, as well as the larger companies, at a cost they can all afford.
According to the Ponemon Institute, the annual cost, per company, of U.S. cyber crime, in 2014, was $20.8 Million in financial services; $14.5 Million in technology; $12.7 Million in communications and $8.6 Million in retail. And that is only among the attacks that were made public. Most large companies receive multiple attacks daily or don't know they've been breached.
Cyber Black Ops, Inc. CEO, Sean Galliher, says, "While the majors like Target, Home Depot, eBay and Chase Bank receive the most public exposure when their security is invaded, the fact is that between 2012 – 2013, cyber attacks on small to mid-sized businesses increased 61%."
With a cost of about $900,000 per attack, loss of customers and taking up to one year to recover from damages to their operations or reputation, 60% of those companies had to close their doors within six months. It's additionally reported that 31% of all cyber attacks are aimed at companies with less than 250 employees.
Galliher says, "Cyber criminals assume that these smaller companies don't believe they're likely targets for attack, aren't paying attention to their security or simply can't afford to buy it. FireDragon is leveling the playing field for the SMB's."
In addition to affordability, FireDragon has focused on providing ease of use to their customers who might, otherwise, need to hire an outside consultant or designated IT employee to manage their security system. FireDragon is a scalable analytical tool that can run on one server or many and share tasks and information among them all.
"Unlike our competition," Galliher says, "we don't leave our customers treading water in pools of intelligence. We provide actionable intelligence that is specific to their business and their cyber attack. Every business, regardless of size, deserves top quality security for their intellectual property and financial assets. FireDragon provides it."
