When in June 2017, hackers, presumably connected with the Russian intelligence services, attacked Ukrainian enterprises; they chose the popular accounting software "M.E.Doc" to be their first victim. The software has been actively used by both state and private companies. Now, "M.E.Doc" will be the first to test a fundamentally new system of protection against hacking. Igor Kozachenko, the "SVO of the ROMAD company", the former head of the State Center for Cyber Defense and Counterterrorism of the State Service of Special Communication informs “The Observer” on this.
"They have got a strong defense. One of the security features is the Romad EDR – a unique solution to protect end users provided by our company. This is the Next Generation Endpoint Protection and Response (NGEP) software that allows you to protect your automated work place from a malware with the help of the latest level of cyber protection", he said.
The expert explains that the software provides real protection against the so-called "zero day" threats. Moreover, "M.E.Doc" has taken additional measures to prevent hackers from getting to the company’s servers again.
"Revised and amended security policy for the company's entire infrastructure. And the most important is experience. They have been tried by fire, and, therefore, they have become stronger ", - says Mr. Kozachenko.
According to him, it is necessary to continue to seek and implement protective solutions that can provide protection from the current type of threat. A rule of thumb has shown that standard AVs could have not and could not solve the problem of protection because of the archaic structure of its software.
