PRESS RELEASE — CLOUD PARTNERS — Effortless Office (Booth 819), today announced its new security offering, Effortless Defense. Effortless Defense goes vastly beyond normal firewall, spam, and virus detection capabilities and makes use of sandbox-based behavior analysis detection techniques. Layered with the Effortless Desktops and around-the-clock proactive Effortless Monitoring, Effortless Defense is poised to deliver a complete protection against current and emerging threats, targeted attacks, and zero-day vulnerabilities.
Veteran technology sector entrepreneur, Benjamin Gayheart, is President and Founder of Effortless Office.
“Effortless Office measures its success in the security, speed, and efficiency we provide to our users. Customers are so pleased with the security aspect of our product that we now offer it as a stand-alone solution to quickly identify malicious activity in a customer’s environment,” said Gayheart.
Gayheart and his enterprise have led IT support among clients for whom data privacy is of the utmost importance. Tropicana Casino and Hotel have been long term clients of Effortless Office. Block16 Hospitality Group and numerous healthcare facilities around the U.S.A. are users of and strong advocates for the Effortless Defense security product. This is no surprise, given the recent Target, Home Depot, JPMorgan Chase, and Sony Pictures Entertainment tech security breaches, which could have benefited from similar technology—all examples of how destructive malware can be to an organization’s reputation and financial stability.
A 2015 study conducted by Ponemon Institute found that, while 67 percent of respondents report they have some type of structured approach to malware containment, 33 percent have an “ad hoc” approach. Thirty percent say they have a structured approach that relies on manual activities, and 24 percent say they rely primarily upon automated tools.
“Most clients just don’t have the tools or the staffing to meet the demand for threats that are coming at them. Attackers are getting more sophisticated, and so are we. Monitor, detect, and react. We are here every step of the way,” said Gayheart.”
Gayheart credits features of the Effortless Defense product — such as its behavioral engine, with machine learning, and its ability to provide agentless deployment—with allowing clients to extract maximum value from their IT assets, without compromising the security of their organizations.
The solution is sold only via Effortless Office’s partners (agents, MSPs, and VARs). Effortless Partners can now provide their clients a service that accurately detects and analyzes the next generation of malware, providing actionable, contextual intelligence, enabling more effective and faster response to attacks, and in as surgically precise a manner as their attackers. Effortless Defense’s platform allows for distributed architecture and offers a cost-effective, high-performance approach to detecting and protecting an organization, everywhere it does business, including physical and virtual environments. To bring clients this advanced security offering, Effortless Office is working alongside experts in advanced threats from government intelligence agencies and premier network security companies.
