Normal activity...except that it was coming from China.
Dan Kascak’s seen it all. He’s saved an international travel provider hundreds of thousands of dollars when he discovered abnormal and unauthorized satellite data usage. He discovered a terabyte of data from a U.S. company being uploaded to the Ukraine...where they didn’t operate. He got to the bottom of an employee computer streaming ESPN for three days straight...while the employee was out witnessing the birth of his first child. And he put a stop to otherwise normal looking U.S. employee logins...coming from China.
Dan draws on his 14 years of experience to lead the Stealthwatch Technology Support team, and with all he’s seen, there’s no client problem too complex for him to identify and quickly help to solve. “Your mom always said: ‘Don’t talk to strangers,’ but what strangers has your computer been talking to?” Dan asks. “Every time you pull up an average web page, and all the ads start popping up, how do you know any one of those 50 ad sites hasn’t pulled something bad onto your computer?” The answer is: you don’t, unless you have the correct tools.
Stealthwatch can do at a network level what other tools do at a machine level. “Our work is to bring that golden bullet...that unified protection suite,” says Dan. “Everyone likes to get up thinking ‘I’m going to save the world,’ but this is one of those jobs where you can actually say that.”
