Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services, powered by SentinelOne's behavior-analysis technology, provides advanced protection for endpoints and servers. This modern approach to malware defense addresses the new wave of cyber attacks, like ransomware, which easily avoid detection by traditional signature-based anti-virus (AV) techniques. ProSight ASM gives small and mid-sized companies the benefits of the same AV technology deployed by some of the world's largest enterprises including Walmart, Netflix, Visa, Citi, NASDAQ, and Salesforce. By providing real-time malware blocking, detection, mitigation, recovery and forensics in a single integrated platform, ProSight ASM lowers total cost of ownership, streamlines management, and expedites recovery. The next-generation endpoint protection (NGEP) engine incorporated in ProSight ASM was ranked by Gartner Group as the industry's "most visionary Endpoint Protection Platform." Progent is a SentinelOne Partner, dealer, and integrator.
Progent's ProSight Active Security Monitoring services rely on a low-profile software agent running on every protected device in order to create an active security grid that reacts to potential malware in real time and orchestrates unified defense featuring:

ProSight Active Security Monitoring and Today's Threat Landscape
Over 97% of successful malware attacks could have been blocked by modern security tools. But the industry has come to realize that, unfortunately, some attacks will succeed despite the best defenses. The modern security landscape is too filled with bad actors, including state-sponsored cyber criminals, for any enterprise to be entirely safe. With this in mind, ProSight Active Security Monitoring is designed not just to prevent malware from gaining access to your network, but also to react decisively to any detected penetration. This includes immediate isolation of compromised devices, automatic threat removal, machine-speed immunization of all endpoints via device-resident agents, single-click restore to a safe state, and comprehensive forensics to show you how to bolster your security profile to foil future attacks. By delivering leading-edge protection during all phases of a cyber attack, ProSight ASM provides a comprehensive solution for dealing with the increasingly dire security landscape and avoiding the financial and reputation loss associated with a major security breach.
Endpoints such as desktops, notebooks and smartphones are the most susceptible and most commonly attacked elements of an IT network. ProSight Active Security Monitoring services offer a unified endpoint protection (EPP) platform to handle the complete lifecycle of a cyber attack including blocking, identification, remediation, restoration and analytics. Threats managed by ProSight ASM include:
ProSight ASM's Behavior-based Threat Detection
- File-based attacks like ransomware, trojans, worms, backdoors and payload-based attacks
- File-less and memory-only attacks without disk-based indicators
- Document-based attacks incorporated within macros and Office and Adobe files
- Phishing and spear phishing email-based attacks (which are responsible for a high percentage of security breaches)
- Live attacks based on scripts like PowerShell, Powersploit, WMI, and VBS
- Credential-based attacks such as credential-scraping, Mimikatz, and tokens
Older-generation anti-virus (AV) software uses so-called "signature matching" as its primary mechanism for malware detection. With this technique, a distinct file hash, known as a signature, is calculated for every familiar threat. AV programs continually compare incoming data against ever-expanding signature tables, and block anything with a tell-tale signature. The problem with this technique is that new threats are now being generated much faster than AV labs can create and publish signatures. Next-generation AV platforms supplement traditional signature matching with behavior analysis. This technology examines the actions of a possible threat and decides whether the behavior is normal and safe or abnormal and potentially dangerous. For example, does the code in question impact an unusually large number of processes? Does it modify the registry? Does it log keystrokes? Basically, behavior analysis focuses on suspicious activities rather than on a signature, which a hacker can easily nullify just by changing a few inconsequential bytes of malware code.
Prevention: Prior to the Attack
New threats are being manufactured fast enough to overwhelm the capacity of signature-based AV platform providers. The industry has broadly recognized the shortcomings of signature-matching EPP since 2012. Since then things have grown worse quickly enough to qualify as a crisis.
Malware production has increased far faster than signature-based AV technology can respond
ProSight ASM uses intelligent cloud-based resources and reputation services from major vendors to block known threats. This combined with deep file inspection and dynamic blacklisting and whitelisting give ProSight ASM an advantage over traditional AV products. However, prevention is only the first stage of modern AV defense. Sophisticated exploits, file-less and script-based attacks routinely slip by signature-matching systems. As an example, malware packers compress attack code to camouflage malicious software so security researchers and AV software are unable to recognize the threat.
Detection and Mitigation: During the Attack
The second part of the EPP lifecycle involves reacting to a cyber attack while the malicious code is executing. ProSight ASM uses next-generation endpoint protection technology to spot malicious activity caused by any threat that breaks through the first line of defense. In order to compromise data, even file-less threats like a memory-based attack perform recognizable activities such as creating an executable file without permission. ProSight ASM's compact agent monitors activity in every protected endpoint device and uses advanced behavioral threat analysis and full execution context to detect new attacks as soon as they start. When an attack is identified, ProSight ASM at once isolates the impacted endpoint from the network to contain the damage. Since the ProSight ASM agent operates autonomously, endpoints remain secured even when they are disconnected from the Internet.
Cleanup: After a Break-in
After containing an attack, ProSight ASM starts the recovery phase of protection. When ProSight ASM is integrated with Windows Volume Shadow Copy Service (Windows VSS), changes to data caused by a cyber attack can be automatically rolled back to a trusted state with one click. ProSight ASM also logs any system-level files and settings that were altered by the attack and what files were fixed. Whenever ProSight ASM uncovers a new malware binary, the code is flagged and all devices on the network that are protected by agents are immunized against the new attack. Also, the ProSight ASM management console offers extensive forensics such as an intuitive visualization of the attack's storyline across the network from beginning to end. This audit trail of how an attack progressed through the network helps you assess the damage and highlights vulnerabilities in policies or work habits that should be corrected to avoid future breaches.
