Dell SecureWorks has expanded its cyber incident response (IR) services, to help companies better protect their networks from attack by cyber criminals, hackers and nation states.
The security firm said that expanded service will defend clients from targeted attacks hitting their system.
It will do this by offering companies Advanced Threat Preparedness Assessment and Denial of Service (DoS) Preparedness Assessment services.
The Advanced Threat Preparedness Assessment service evaluates companies' organisational intelligence capabilities, policies and documentation, technical capabilities, and personnel management.
The DoS Preparedness Assessment service will gauge the effectiveness of the clients' current defences using capabilities review software, tabletop exercises and DoS/DDoS stress testing.
The data will then be used to help improve companies' defences connecting them to Dell SecureWorks Counter Threat Unit (CTU) and Security Operations Centers (SOCs).
The centres will offer companies real time data on 2,200-plus advanced persistent threat (APT) domains, 23,800-plus APT Command and Control (C2) sub-domains, 1,300-plus hardcoded APT C2 IPs and more than 300 APT malware families.
Red October was a spying campaign, believed to have stemmed from a Russian group. It was caught targeting numerous European governments' networks, including the UK, early in 2013.
MiniDuke is a cyber spying tool discovered by Kaspersky and Crysys Lab that targeting government and critical infrastructures systems using malicious PDF documents at the end of February.
Director of the incident response practice at Dell SecureWorks, Jeff Schilling, warned the threats are too advanced for any one company to take on alone.
"It's nearly impossible for most organisations to completely resolve a security breach on their own. It requires expertly trained and experienced personnel with deep insight into threat actors and their trade craft," said Schilling.
Schilling's sentiment mirrors those of numerous other security companies, including Microsoft's Trustworthy Computing division, which issued a similar warning during a press event in 2012.
Prior to the IR's release Dell SecureWorks chief technology officer, Jon Ramsey, told V3 the company was operating under the assumption that 2013 would see an influx of new nation state cyber attacks targeting businesses, as you can watch below:
