Sentry Armor ™
Averting Intruders and Malicious Employees
FTP is a prime target for intruders as well as malicious employees and contractors. Tools and techniques used to gain access to FTP servers are widely shared even amongst amateur hackers. Tens of thousands of hackers have taken the time to create and upload instructional videos on how to attack FTP and post them on polular sites like YouTube. That these videos amass hundreds of thousands of views shows how popular FTP attacks are.
Some of the main reasons are:
FTP allows an intruder unlimited logon attempts
FTP is widespread use in every company, but without centralized management
Most enterprises are unaware of the proliferation of FTP in their network
The lack of awareness leads to a lack of monitoring tools to detect or prevent attacks
The risk of detection is minimal due to the lack of monitoring
New methods drastically reduce the number of attempts needed to obtain a password
Sentry Armor™ detects attacks AND actively blocks the attacks in real-time while alerting IT staff of the attack taking place.
