Most advanced persistent [APT] attacks are after valuable information for cyber fraud, cyber espionage or nation-state attacks using malware to gain access to personal login and password data entered from a PC, Smartphone or other device endpoint as sensitive information is entered into browsers during an online session. Once an endpoint is infected, network breaches within an institution such as a bank, merchant, healthcare provider or utility are more likely to occur.
Wontok’s secure by design philosophy and engineering methodologies look at security from the ground up by assuming malware is already present on the desktop, mobile device, or even a terminal like POS or ATM. Unlike traditional antivirus or firewalls which advanced malware can easily bypass, Wontok SafeCentral prevents malware from reaching its target.
