An Ounce of Prevention is Worth a Pound of Cure

When Benjamin Franklin was quoted as saying “an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” he was actually referring to fire safety.  In the last 200+ years this quote has become the gold standard for those who believe that prevention is always superior to remediation and we at Solebit are no exception.

But why is it that we seem to spend more and more each year on cyber threat protection, but hackers and breaches still effect most every corporation globally? The expenses are staggering.  According to Steve Morgan, Editor-In-Chief of CyberSecurity Ventures, the cybersecurity market was worth $120 billion in 2017, up from $3.5 billion in 2004 and “will exceed 1$ trillion cumulatively over the next five years, from 2017 to 2021.”

Despite this spend of billions of dollars, the hacker community just seems to get smarter and more effective at evasion. According to Dell Cameron at

“A week hardly passed this year without a major data breach to remind us of how precarious the state of security was throughout 2017. And while I’d love to report otherwise, you’d be hard pressed right now to find anyone in the know who thinks things are looking up.”

Ultimately you will need to establish a security layer that can allow your organization to:

  • Prevent, don’t remediate: Strengthen your cyber defenses dramatically by preventing attacks before they enter and harm your organization, your customers and your brand. Remediation is costly, prevention is not.
  • Detect the undetected: Identify any malicious or hidden code within incoming data files whether on your network or in a cloud. What you don’t know or cannot see can harm you.
  • Avoid the firedrill: Proactively and radically improve the agility of your cyber security. Finally, you can detect and protect against unknown (”zero-day”) risks, so at last you can take the panic out of cyber security.

Solebit Advanced Threat Protection detects the advanced malware that other tools miss

While a Sandbox has O/S visibility only and is dependent on specific versions, Solebit uses static evaluation, which is faster, more accurate, not OS version dependent and covers 100% of code, with complete visibility.  With Solebit every line of code is evaluated, making Sandbox evasion techniques ineffective. On average, Solebit analysis time is between milliseconds up to a few seconds. Network Sandboxes typically take 5-15 minutes to perform the same analysis.
