Gwinnett County Public Schools Defends Against Advanced Malware with Lastline Enterprise – Case Study

“The challenge for all of us — CISOs, security managers, and security analysts alike — is to quickly detect and eradicate malicious files before they can be leveraged towards a full-scale security breach. Lastline Enterprise helps us satisfy this challenge.”

The Challenge

Cyber criminals have transitioned from casting a wide net with opportunistic attacks to targeting specific organizations with the intent of stealing high-value information and data. Because of this shift, Gwinnett County Public Schools, the largest public school system in Georgia, realized it was necessary to acquire technology that could adequately defend against new threats to protect their assets.

“Businesses large and small are under constant cyber-attack.  We have seen the threat landscape transform from traditional attacks centered on the network perimeter to sophisticated “phishing” and “drive-by-download” assaults directed at our end-users and endpoints systems.”

The Solution

Gwinnett tried several solutions when searching for an advanced malware protection solution provider. They chose Lastline because it was the only solution that used a next-generation sandbox powered by full-system emulation to detect evasive malware missed by traditional sandboxing techniques and provided a complete picture of the health of the network.

“Lastline provides us with deeper visibility and insight into web downloads and malicious attachments, embedded within ‘accepted’ business applications and protocols, and ‘passed-through’ by traditional perimeter security solutions.”
