Companies will go-to-market with easy to deploy, AI-driven and automated end-point security addressing the meteoric rise of web-borne attacks

New York, NY; Plainsboro, NJ – June 15, 2021 – ConnX, an innovative multiservice communication platform integrator and managed service provider, today announced it has been working with DefensX, developer of a zero-trust, transformational application to content protection technology that protects users from sophisticated cybersecurity attacks by isolating threats before reaching end-point devices including desktops, laptops, smart phones, and tablets, to bring a new layer of cybersecurity to large enterprises.

Users and endpoints are the main attack vectors being exploited by cyber criminals today. 80% of all breaches in 2021 involved web browsers on mobile/desktop, 85% of the breaches involved a human element, 68% of the attacks targeted endpoints, and 61% of the breaches involved credentials, according to various sources (Verizon 2021 DBIR, Gartner and SANS).

The cost of a successful endpoint attack in 2021 was nearly $9 million up from $7.1 million in the previous year, while new or unknown zero-day attacks will more than double in 2022.

To counteract these explosive trends, DefensX next generation solutions eradicate risk from web-borne threats ensuring users are safe working anywhere on any network or device including desktops, laptops, and iOS & Android.

“DefensX is a perfect fit for ConnX,” said Indrajit “I.G.” Ghosh, CEO of ConnX, one of the world’s most successful and advanced IT platform and managed services provider to Fortune 500 companies across industries including financial services, healthcare, retail, medical sciences, sports and entertainment and others. “We are living in the era of the borderless workforce and ensuring our customers can support their teams and grow their business, even in the face of fast-moving threats, is a very important part of our mission. With so much work being done on desktop and mobile browsers, which will only grow as 5G networks make it possible to do work on smartphones and tablets, attackers have discovered new vulnerabilities including social engineering to lure workers into clicking on links that can open the entire network to attacks in just seconds. We must protect every endpoint – every device – every employee – and do so automatically and intelligently, which is why we are so thrilled to be working with the innovators at DefensX.”

“ConnX is an incredibly successful MSP for all the right reasons,” said Halis Erkan Osman, founder, and CEO of DefensX. “Not only do they have highly experienced leaders in place, and extremely well-trained professionals, they have consistently invested in their own software and platform development, which is bringing next level intelligence and automation to service assurance. They are expert at keeping their customers’ digital operations running without fail across the network, clouds, applications, and collaboration – up and down the entire modern tech stack. They understand risk and compliance because they serve the most demanding enterprises in the most regulated industries. We are honored and excited to bring DefensX offerings into their cyber security portfolio, integrated with their Maestro platform which makes it even easier to deploy and manage with zero-trust and zero-touch automation and AI.”

Among the capabilities and benefits ConnX, working with DefensX, will bring to market are:

  • Social Engineering Protection
  • Foolproof Credential Exposure Protection on Mobile and Desktop
  • Zero-trust Security Embedded into Browsers
  • Enterprise Grade Web Threat Prevention Deployed at the Endpoints in Seconds

While DefensX started out as a browser isolation technology pioneer, their offering has grown to include DNS Security, Zero-Trust Web Protection, Zero-Trust Credentials, Zero-Trust File Protection and Cyber Security Training (embedded into the app, intuitively warning end-users when dangers arise, and keeping them from clicking on nefarious sites, or sharing their credentials).

ConnX offers the complete range of modern IT services and solutions, orchestrated via their Maestro platform. ConnX Security as a Service is a comprehensive offering designed to simplify management, reduce expense, and ensure consistency and compliance. ConnX SECaaS offers a blended approach to data and voice security, ranging from stateful inspection, protocol anomaly detection, and intrusion prevention, to sophisticated application and user-aware learning and correlation techniques.

ConnX Unified Security Management (USM), powered by AT&T Cybersecurity, simplifies operations, and ConnX Unified Communications Threat Management (UCTM), powered by Red Shift, is a subset specialized for voice.

  • Asset Discovery – Know who and what is always connected to your environment ​
  • Vulnerability Assessment – Know where vulnerabilities are on your assets to avoid compromise​
  • Intrusion Detection – Know when suspicious activities happen in your environment​
  • Endpoint Detection and Response – Continuously monitor your endpoints in the cloud and on premises to detect threats and changes to critical files​
  • Behavioral Monitoring – Identify suspicious behavior and potentially compromised systems​
  • SIEM Log Management – Correlate and analyze security event data from across your network and respond​
  • Security and Compliance Reporting – Pre-built, customizable reports for regulation standards and compliance framework​

ConnX CEO Indrajit Ghosh will be speaking on a panel at ITEXPO as an expert on Secure Access Service Edge (SASE).

The MSP Expo and Future of Work Expo are part of the #TECHSUPERSHOW, being held June 21-24, 2022 at the Greater Fort Lauderdale/Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. ConnX is a Platinum Sponsor of both expos; DefensX is a Silver Sponsor of both.
