Threat Monitoring

Continuously monitor your blockchain project for security threats and thwart them as soon as they’re detected.

What Is Threat Monitoring?

Threat monitoring is the process of continuously analyzing your system to identify cyber threats and vulnerabilities. It’s a critical security measure for blockchain-based systems.

Covered Solutions for Threat Monitoring

Value-added Managed Option

At least two designated experts are assigned to continually monitor your network and alert you to any risks, reducing your team’s workload.

Threat Intelligence

Access detailed information about the latest threats targeting blockchain systems.

Digital Risk Protection

Our system enables you to identify attack vectors and provides detailed information about threat actors, allowing you to stay proactive against them.

Attack Surface Development

Conducting proactive analysis to uncover security vulnerabilities in your organization’s blockchain network.

Cyber Security Monitoring

Security threat monitoring involves observing the behavior of your blockchain protocol to identify anomalies and take immediate corrective action.

Root Cause Analysis

Analyzing the root cause of any security issues to prevent them from reoccurring.

Why Is Threat Monitoring Important?

Prevention is always better than cure. It’s essential to monitor your blockchain system for cyber threats and thwart the detected issues before they cause severe consequences.

Threat monitoring prevents data breaches, which can be very costly for blockchain systems holding users’ assets. It minimizes system downtime and strengthens your reputation in the long term.

Benefits of Threat Detection

Prevent or Thwart Attacks

Proactive threat detection helps you prevent attacks on your blockchain network. You can detect attacks before they land on your blockchain network and thwart them beforehand, avoiding security breaches that can cause heavy losses and harm your reputation.

Avoid Costly Downtime

Downtime is costly for systems with a sizeable number of users. Every second of downtime represents lost revenue and a blow to your reputation. Proactive threat monitoring helps detect and resolve issues before they can bring down your entire network.

Protect Business-Critical Data

Threat detection helps your business avoid confidential data leaks. It protects your blockchain system from leaking critical information that malicious actors could exploit for personal gain.

Meet Compliance Requirements

Threat monitoring is a typical legal requirement for blockchain systems. Our threat monitoring service helps you comply with contractual obligations and industry standards, earning your users’ trust.

Audit companies space can be pretty wild - there are loud names that provide sub-par services and there are ones that take ages to finalize the reports (delaying the product launch!)

After running through an extended search quest, we made the right decision to go with Pessimistic. Quality, responsiveness, vibe - everything was great. 

They walk an extra mile to make you confident everything is going to work as it should!

It is the process of proactively monitoring your network to detect security threats and counter them before they hurt your business. Threat detection and monitoring is critical for organizations, as it allows them to maintain a rigid wall against security breaches and attacks. It’s crucial for as long as your organization keeps operating.

Advanced persistent threats (APTs) refer to stealth cyber threats that employ sophisticated techniques to breach a network and remain undetected for a long time, causing undue damage in the process. APTs use clandestine methods that aren’t easy to detect, which makes them a priority for organizations to counter. They are often, but not always, the work of state-sponsored groups and require advanced threat monitoring to thwart.

Advanced threat detection refers to the various techniques experts employ to detect and respond to sophisticated cyber threats. Pessimistic is well-adapted to advanced threat monitoring; we have experts who manually review networks to detect and counter threats before they cause serious damage. You’re in safe hands with us.

Advanced threat detection helps your organization detect and thwart attacks in their early stages. It lets organizations avoid costly downtime that could also harm their reputation. It protects critical data from leaks and ensures compliance with industry security standards.

It is the process of continually monitoring your network to identify and avert cyber attacks. It involves using advanced threat detection tools to detect and respond to threats as soon as they’re detected. Pessimistic provides cyber threat monitoring services for blockchain networks.

It works by analyzing massive volumes of real-time network data to detect signs of a cyber threat, e.g., a spike in traffic from a suspicious source, unknown programs running on the network, and unusually slow connections. Cyber threat monitoring is crucial for blockchain systems, which are a prime target for malicious actors.

There are endless types of cyber threats. Examples include malware, a dangerous software that alters network behavior; ransomware, holding data hostage for ransom payments; password attacks, breaching password-protected systems; and insider threats, which emanate from parties with internal network access.
