Introduction: Cyber Security Hong Kong

The outbreak of cyber security threats, such as WannaCry and Petya ransomware, has affected various industries in Hong Kong and globally, including government departments, telecommunications, education and SMB. Over one hundred thousand computers across 150 countries were compromised and economic losses reached more than USD 4 billion. If proactive cyber security countermeasures like firewalls are not implemented, enterprises in Hong Kong and other parts of the world may suffer the loss of highly sensitive data, a damaged reputation and decreased 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 defense 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 a Layer 4 firewall is unable to identify by monitoring the ports and protocols only. To mitigate cyber security threats in Hong Kong and on a global scale, effective technologies can be put into place to block the network security breach.

Our industry-leading platform can correlate and analyze the network traffic to provide automated and intelligent protection to block 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 appears, ransomware takes time to encrypt the files. It is ineffective to monitor and search for anomalous behavior against the data with manpower. What if we can offer a cyber security solution for Hong Kong and global businesses 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 steps 1 and 3 are more difficult to apply, but Rapid Backup and Recovery Solutions are still relatively easy. We offer effective best practices 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.
