NEWORDER, a leading information security brand within South Africa that specialises in hacking and industrial espionage protection, today announced a new strategic partnership with Barkly to bring the strongest endpoint security with the smartest technology and simplest management to the South African market.

NEWORDER is the first partner in South Africa to offer Barky's endpoint protection platform specifically designed to stop the most sophisticated attacks currently threatening organisations across the country.

Traditional anti-virus solutions can't stop today's most complex attacks. According to a recent Ponemon Institute report, over 50% of businesses were compromised in 2017, costing them an average $301 per employee or $135 000 for an average midsize company.

The attacks businesses are facing are evolving, and last year 77% of the successful attacks were file-less. Traditional AV and most next-generation AV solutions simply cannot handle this type of sophisticated attack. "Companies have been overpaying for solutions that don't fully protect their endpoints for too long. We are excited to be the first to bring Barkly's superior protection to the South African market to ensure organisations are protected against all types of modern-day attacks," said Marthinus Engelbrecht, Group CEO of NEWORDER.

Barkly replaces legacy anti-virus with stronger, smarter, protection. Barkly ProtectIQ Multi-Vector Attack Blocking recognises the building blocks of attacks - scripts, exploits and executables - to block attacks no matter where they come from. Barkly doesn't rely on signatures or scans. Instead, Barkly uses a combination of behaviour indicators and machine-learning indicators to block attacks in real-time. Barkly's fast, lightweight endpoint agent leverages patented, CPU-level visibility to block attacks that are getting past AV and next-generation AV solutions.

Traditional anti-virus lags behind the threat landscape, requiring constant updates to signature lists, and only blocks files it recognises. Barkly keeps organisations a step ahead of new and zero-day threats by recognising the fundamental behaviours and attributes of malware. Barkly EvolveIQ Continuous Machine Learning continuously trains and tests protection models to stay ahead of the threat landscape.

With Barkly CommandIQ, organisations can manage their endpoint protection from their mobile or desktop. It is the first and only endpoint portal that is fully mobile-capable, enabling admins to manage protection and take action on incident alerts on the go.

Barkly is independently certified for anti-virus replacement, HIPAA, PCI DSS and NIST by Coalfire and AV-TEST.
