Introduction: Cyber Security Hong Kong

The outbreak of cyber security threats like WannaCry and Petya ransomware had shocked various industries both in Hong Kong and globally including government departments, telecommunications, education and SMB. Over one hundred thousand computers across 150 countries were compromised and economic loss reached more than USD 4 billion. If proactive cyber security countermeasures are not taken, enterprises may suffer the loss of highly sensitive data, a damaged reputation and discontinued productivity.

Nikoyo Value

Nikoyo believes implementing the necessary cyber security controls in Hong Kong and China that provides data availability, integrity and confidentiality by multi-layered defence systems, such as a secure firewall, can minimize the probability of successful penetration. To secure customers’ data, we aim to offer agile and reliable cyber security solutions in HK on preventive, detective, corrective and recovery technical controls, i.e. threat prevention, data management and protection, as well as rapid storage backup and recovery.

Threat Prevention

Traditional cyber security and malware detection algorithms are straightforward and signature oriented. It may be difficult to screen out polymorphic malware. In addition, there are a large number of silos that Layer 4 firewall is unable to identify by monitoring the ports and protocols only. To mitigate cyber security threats, effective technologies can be put into place on top of to block the network security breach.

Our industry-leading platform can correlate and analyse the network traffic to provide automated and intelligent protection to block the unknown cyber security threats that Layer 4 firewalls are unable to identify, or zero-day exploits for your business in Hong Kong or China.

Real-time Detection

Before the pop-up message notifying that the files have been encrypted and locked, ransomware takes time to encrypt the files. It is ineffective to monitor and search for anomalous behaviour against the data with manpower. What if we can offer a cyber security solution that detects massive file encryption and alerts users of the malware attack?

With our cyber security HK solutions in place, users can rest assured that any unusual activity will be detected and stopped before damage takes place.

Rapid Backup and Recovery

When WannaCry broadly spread in May 2017, cyber security specialists from the Hong Kong Computer Emergency Response Team Coordination Centre (HKCERT) advised users to take 3 steps to guard against malware:

1. Disconnect PC from the Internet;

2. Backup the files;

3. Update the OS.

For mission-critical production environments, it seems step 1 and 3 are more difficult to apply, but Rapid Backup and Recovery Solutions are still relatively easy. We offer effective best practice for backup as remediation. Our solution leveraging storage snapshot technology provides the lowest performance overhead, optimal RPO and RTO, as well as fast data recovery.
