The ability to take advantage of the most advanced, modern cybersecurity defenses has for a long time been a luxury that only large organizations with ample financial resources, cybersecurity expertise, and manpower could leverage. For most auto and heavy truck dealers, the best cybersecurity defenses have been beyond their reach. But now, things have changed.
There’s no doubt that cybercriminals are targeting dealers. This is because cybercriminals prefer to attack businesses that have the financial resources to pay a ransom as well as a wealth of valuable data. Additionally, cybercriminals favor spending their time on hacking into businesses that lack sophisticated and modern cybersecurity defenses – the path of least resistance. Dealers fit this bill.
It’s important to understand that today’s cybercriminal isn’t the kid with a hoody operating out of his parent’s basement. Today’s cybercriminal is often part of an organized crime syndicate or a foreign government. These criminals are well-trained, experienced and they have the best technology at their disposal. If you are like most dealers, then you probably don’t have formally trained and certified cybersecurity professionals on staff and you probably don’t have the most advanced cybersecurity technologies in place. You’re therefore no match for today’s cybercriminal. Helion wants to help you change this and level the playing field.
Helion has created an advanced cybersecurity platform that brings the most advanced cybersecurity capabilities within reach of any dealer – regardless of your size or the cybersecurity expertise of your IT team. We call this new solution the Helion Security Sentinel or HSS. HSS is the most advanced cybersecurity solution exclusively designed to accommodate the unique needs of dealers.
Early Identification of a Cybersecurity Threat
HSS leverages technology that constantly monitors devices, systems, and user behavior throughout your dealership to quickly identify suspicious activity that could otherwise go unnoticed. With early detection of suspicious activity, threats can often be halted before they cause any damage.
Rapid Threat Remediation
HSS gives the dealer the benefit of having advanced cybersecurity capabilities guarding its finances, data and reputation. For instance, with HSS, a cybersecurity threat is identified and using rules-based automated responses it is quarantined and mitigated. These capabilities drastically reduce your threat response time to a matter of hours/minutes instead of the typical months/weeks.
Peace of Mind
HSS is a combination of technology and 24/7 on guard expertise that defends your dealership from the cybercriminal. In addition to the technology that is continuously watching your IT environment for a potential threat, with HSS you have an entire team of highly trained cybersecurity professionals with expertise in digital forensics, malware reverse engineering, incident response, and technical surveillance countermeasures protecting your dealership from the cybercriminal – 7 days a week, 365 days a year.
What’s Your Cybersecurity Strategy?
Finally, with HSS, dealers now have the ability to take advantage of the most modern cybersecurity defense available – regardless of the size of your dealership. The time to take action to defend the business you’ve worked so hard to establish is now. With a ransomware attack taking place about every 11 seconds it’s just a matter of time before you get hit. Waiting until you’re hacked to do something is too late.
