Introduction: Cyber Security HK

The outbreak of cyber security threats, such as WannaCry and Petya ransomware, has affected various industries in HK 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 HK and worldwide 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 HK and China that provide 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 offer agile and reliable cyber security solutions in HK on the preventive, detective, corrective and technical recovery controls, i.e. threat prevention, data management and protection, and rapid storage backup and recovery.

Threat Prevention

Traditional cyber security and malware detection algorithms are straightforward and signature-oriented, making it difficult to screen out polymorphic malware. Also, many silos only monitor the ports and protocols and cannot be identified by the Layer 4 firewall. To mitigate cyber security threats in HK and on a global scale, effective technologies have to be implemented to block network security breaches.

Our industry-leading platform can correlate and analyze the network traffic to provide automated and intelligent protection to block zero-day exploits or unknown cyber security threats that Layer 4 firewalls cannot identify for your business in HK 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 HK and global businesses that detects massive file encryption and alerts users of the malware attack?

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

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, and fast data recovery.
