RedShield offers clients market-leading cyber security insurance solution

RedShield, will now be providing clients with a market leading cyber risk mitigation solution. The insurance and risk management service will be specifically available for companies that have RedShield’s website and application defense service.

This initiative is aimed at guiding New Zealand companies in taking the right steps to prepare, defend and recover from the increasing risk of cyber-attack. These attacks are estimated to have cost local companies over $625 million in the last 4 years, and forecast by the Government Communications Security Bureau (GCSB) to increase by 60% annually. Recent breach analysis has shown that web application security flaws are commonly used as a point of entry.

In developing this offering to their clients, RedShield has worked closely with Marsh, a global leader in insurance broking and risk management, and, Delta Insurance. This collaboration allows for these gaps in cyber risk control to be effectively managed through cyber security and insurance.

Marsh has been actively raising awareness of cyber risk and implementing facilities such as their global online questionnaire Cyber Risk Self-Assessment Tool, to broadly determine the relevance of a cyber-event on an organization.“It’s important for clients to understand that insurance is not the only step in solving this issue, and that security technology also does not guarantee complete protection. This collaboration provides our clients with well-rounded advice on cyber risk,” says Marsh New Zealand Head of Specialties Frederic Boles.

Website Shielding with a Service

RedShield provides the most advanced defence for your websites and web applications.

Baseline Application Change Tolerant Controls

RedShield applies a baseline DDoS and WAF configuration to each application. This baseline is continuously enhanced by our R&D team, plus it is specifically designed to allow your applications to change over time.

Application Change Managed Controls

Beyond the baseline we are guided by Vulnerability Intelligence. Just like in medicine where drugs are only prescribed when a relevant condition is diagnosed, we only apply advanced shield config if it is warranted. In these cases we actively monitor and manage the specific shields then engage in the application Software Delivery Lifecycle when appropriate.

At this point, we have implemented best practice in WAF and security controls management, however, given WAFs can’t address the vast majority of Logical Vulnerabilities, dev teams are typically left with a number of issues to address.

Proprietary Shield Library

Using a programmable interception proxy, RedShield's micro services shields can manipulate application logic during an application session to mitigate advanced technical and logical vulnerabilities. Advanced shielding is scoped and charged in addition to base services. In general, it delivers the same results as fixing code, but is much faster and less expensive. With this addition, RedShield is the first web shielding service able to target 100% mitigation of discovered vulnerabilities.

If your Websites / Web-Applications

  • • Are high value or business critical
    • Have been compromised
  • • Failed a penetration test or have
    known vulnerabilities
    • Are hard, time consuming and expensive
    to fix

Then you absolutely need to find out how RedShield can shield your applications now. Thanks to RedShield, many of our customers have fully passed their previously failed pen-tests and scans and now have zero public facing vulnerabilities, all without having to write a single line of new code or make any alterations to their existing systems.
