1. Understanding the main cyber threats

The cyber security threat is always present. Attackers and their methods are constantly evolving and becoming more sophisticated. Every business in every industry is at risk, but we’re here to help. With the right strategy, approach and partner, you can successfully defend yourself against an attack and reduce the risk of becoming a target.


Phishing scams

Phishing scammers send fake emails that appear to come from a trustworthy source. They will try to trick you into making a payment or revealing security information.

Session hijacking attacks

In session hijacking or ‘man in the middle attacks’, a hacker intervenes in a Web session, masquerading as the site being visited to intercept data or personal information, often completely undetected.


This is a specific kind of malware that holds your data to ransom, locking down files and demanding money in return for the code to unlock them.

Zero day vulnerabilities

This is a ‘hole’ in software that enables hackers to compromise systems or data while remaining undetected, until the ‘zero-day’ when the victim becomes aware of the vulnerability and starts trying to repair it.

DDoS attacks

Distributed Denial of Service (or Denial of Service) attacks happen when a hacker crashes the victim’s computer or overloads it with traffic. ‘ In ‘distributed’ attacks the unwelcome data comes from many different sources, making defence trickier.


Malicious software can take many forms including viruses, worms, Trojans and spyware. Malware compromises computers when someone opens an infected attachment, clicks a link or visits a dubious website.

2. Your business challenges

Overcoming business challenges can help you to be more productive, freeing up valuable time to let you focus on driving your business forward.

The right skills

Having the right security expertise in-house can be very costly and hard to come by for many businesses, not least because of the worldwide skills shortage in this field. There will be an estimated 2 million unfilled cyber security roles around the world in 2019.

Too much choice

Another major business challenge is finding the right security vendor from the hundreds on the market. How do you know which one is right for you, who is best, which vendors integrate with your current software and so on. Choosing the wrong partner can be an expensive mistake.

Time and resources

The bigger your organisation is, the more complex your security needs might be, meaning managing anything from 20 to 320 security vendors and contracts in order to provide the right level of protection. This provides its own set of challenges and can be extremely time-consuming.

Knowing how to choose an effective security solution that will protect all of your infrastructure, datacentre services, and public and private cloud can be difficult. Pulsant Protect offers a flexible range of security services, making it much simpler to find the optimum solution.
