Challenges Of Protecting Your Network From Rogue Devices
As your company grows and relies on technology and IoT devices even more, your network size increases. Between company devices and employee devices, there are multiple points for cyber threats to enter your network. The number of potential attack points increases with each branch office and Work From Home (WFH) employee your company has. Although you likely have network security in place, it is difficult to notice new devices accessing your company’s network. Your security risk is further compounded if you have a large network or one with many segments. With multiple attack points, a rogue or compromised device can easily slip through and connect to your company’s network – which can result in data and financial loss.
Existing device detection solutions, such as a Network Access Control (NAC) system or an Intrusion Detection Solution (IDS), on average, require you to have a six-digit budget. In addition to the high cost, these solutions are often difficult to manage over long periods of time. Akative aims to address these limitations head-on and deliver critical security technology with iStatus ArpWatch™.
Proactively monitor, track, & detect endpoints
Mark known/trusted devices
Add trusted devices before they are physically connected
Monitor default LAN gateway
ARP spoofing detection
Generate alerts when unapproved endpoints are added
Enter iStatus ArpWatch™
ArpWatch is an affordable add-on license to iStatus® that allows our iStatus monitoring probe to detect new devices as they appear on your network. ArpWatch also detects ARP poisoning and man-in-the-middle attacks to offer further insight. Easily monitor all of your network segments (while they remain isolated) without violating network security.
How It Works
Once the iStatus monitoring probe is installed and ArpWatch is enabled, ArpWatch begins to proactively monitor for devices that appear on your network. Any devices detected within the defined initial discovery interval (default set at 48 hours) are automatically approved. After this interval, ArpWatch immediately sends an alert to your network administrator when it detects a new device or discovers a known device was altered (such as its IP address was changed). This enables your network administrator to know device activity in real-time and validate it or halt it – protecting your network from unsafe, rogue devices and compromising activity.Download Flyer
React Proactively & Keep Your Network Secure
Ideal for complex, multi-location networks, iStatus dashboard gives you a birds-eye view of all remote location Internet connections. iStatus uses ConnectionValidation™ to validate Internet connections and the complete path of each network segment, to ensure each network segment is working. In the event of a connection failure, iStatus sends IntelligentAlerts™ via intelligent push notifications or emails with everything needed for you to respond immediately.
With the iStatus ChangeDetection™ feature, iStatus also helps you maintain the security of your network. This built-in feature alerts you when the DNS or gateway is altered - indicating a misconfiguration, or worse, a cyberattack. With real-time alerts keeping you informed, you can quickly and proactively take action to keep your network secure and operating optimally.iStatus ChangeDetection
