SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 28, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- When a computer virus infected the network at Crouse and Associates in San Francisco, the insurance services company ground to a halt during a weeklong outage -- costing a significant amount of time and money to resolve. The company does not have a large IT staff or a chief information security officer, it can't afford to employ security experts and it doesn't have the time or expertise to wade through the complicated Internet security landscape filled with intimidating terminology like "botnets," "kill-chains," "application firewalls" and "advanced persistent threats."
So the busy company left it all up to global technology solutions provider Netswitch and its innovative MADROC® Integrated Security Platform that maximizes network security for more than 2,500 global businesses, large and small. MADROC® provides complete intrusion detection and prevention along with event management and immediate alerting and remediation -- complete peace of mind within a monthly subscription plan.
The future is very clear: Cyber-crime is growing rapidly and as security gets better, the criminals get smarter. To respond to this real problem, Netswitch has revolutionized the way IT security is delivered -- controlling and monitoring a heterogeneous mix of IT technology from top to bottom at every touch point; a true Defense in Depth security strategy. A MADROC® subscription includes all engineering, configuration, tuning, licenses and maintenance, along with a dedicated Security Operations Control Center providing support around the clock, with 15 minute response and immediate remediation.

e-Book Breach Launches
In addition to the launch of MADROC® Integrated Security Platform, Netswitch COO and Chief Security Officer Steve King has launched an eBook called "Breach" that describes the current state of data breaches, and what you can do to protect your company.
Excerpt from eBook Breach: We have seen the trends in cyber-crime and malware attacks. With these attacks evolving at such an astounding pace, your organization needs security solutions today that address head-on every attack vector from the surface to the core, aka Defense in Depth. We believe that the principle of Defense in Depth should be the foundation strategy for any and all business security policies and approaches. Defense in Depth is the coordinated use of multiple security countermeasures to protect the integrity of the information assets in an enterprise. The strategy is based on the military principle that it is more difficult for an enemy to defeat a complex and multi-layered defense system than to penetrate a single barrier.
In terms of computer network defense, Defense in Depth measures should not only prevent security breaches, but will also buy an organization time to detect and respond to an attack, thereby reducing and mitigating the consequences of a breach.
