Modern cyber-attacks come in many different forms, often exploiting previously unknown security gaps and
vulnerabilities within your network infrastructure. Businesses of all sizes need to stay vigilant against malware,
hacking attempts, data theft, intellectual property theft, and other cybercrime. The current online threat
landscape shifts and changes every day; attacks become more sophisticated, cybercriminals become smarter,
and the stakes soar ever higher. It’s no wonder that the unprepared get caught out.

Anti-malware controls, firewalls, and intrusion prevention measures are essential in guarding against these
threats, but they aren’t sufficient on their own. By their very nature, malware and cyberattacks are designed
and orchestrated to operate stealthily, staying under the radar for as long as possible.
The best way to protect against these threats is to maintain a real-time, top-down view of your entire network,
monitoring hardware changes, network activity, and known routing patterns.
Malware can cause wide-reaching damage to your IT security, yet even the smallest security gap can let in
malicious software. And though strong anti-malware controls are crucial, not all IT security compromises start
and end with malware. Depending on how your IT infrastructure is set up, hacking attempts, data breaches,
and insider threats can all occur without a single instance of malware in sight.
These threats can find their way into your network in a number of ways. Some are relatively easy to stop in
their tracks, like users accessing a known malware site or phishing link. Others are more complex, like insiders
connecting to a VPN or Tor in order to encrypt and disguise their actions, or connecting unauthorised network
Additionally, antivirus software relies on virus definition files that are only available after a virus has been
found “in the wild” and a fix has been engineered. If you’re unlucky enough to have been infected before a
patch has been released, it may be difficult to protect yourself in the interim.
With all of these factors in mind, it’s essential to maintain an overall view of compromise detection, rather
than simply focusing on malware detection and remediation. After all, prevention is always better than cure. Without a real-time, 360-degree, bird’s-eye view of your network’s current traffic and hardware, it’s difficult to pinpoint just how vulnerable your infrastructure could be.
There are a number of tell-tale signs that something untoward may be happening on any network.
Unauthorised hardware additions, cross-network malware propagation traffic, large amounts of data leaving a
single end point, and unexplainable access to sensitive systems can all indicate that a cybersecurity issue is
These signs can be detected and monitored in a number of ways – often through network telemetry
mechanisms like SNMP and NetFlow.However, it’s common for each of these network security controls to be
handled completely separately through multiple, disparate management
systems. These systems often do not
offer any kind of inter-compatibility with each other. Some may not be capable of total, network-wide reach. This lack of single-source cohesion and interoperability can be a serious problem.
Any network security measures need to understand the entire network – fundamentally and holistically. When
monitoring systems don’t work together, extra care, training, and people-power is needed to know and manage each system’s coverage and limitations. And when you’re juggling disparate security systems, cracks can easily emerge – cracks that can grow into highly
vulnerable security gaps if left unchecked.
The solution to this is to invest in a compromise detection and monitoring platform that shines a light on all
corners of your network, providing a central, always-on, real-time fusion of network telemetry data. Thankfully, this is where Rebasoft shines.
Rebasoft is a single, lightweight network monitoring solution that provides a live, holistic view of your
network’s traffic patterns, hardware, and routing. Combining data from SNMP, NetFlow, and other enterprise-
level monitoring protocols, Rebasoft enables businesses to monitor behaviour patterns and hardware changes
in real time, pinpointing suspicious activity and rogue hardware in moments.
Our affordable solution cross-references this disparate data and presents it all together in a seamless and easy
to use interface. It completely removes the need for guesswork and assumptions, and eliminates the need to
maintain multiple, separate network monitoring tools.
Rebasoft provides invaluable compromise defence in three core ways:
1. Maintaining a complete view of all connected hardware, including PCs, servers, printers, and Wi-Fi
access devices. Rebasoft holistically monitors hardware and traffic, so your technicians can intervene if unauthorised hardware appears or a device starts acting unexpectedly. It also monitors antivirus coverage and virus pattern definitions across the network.
2. Monitoring network behaviour for suspicious activity that may indicate a potential compromise. Malware propagation, DDoS attacks, and data breaches create predictable traffic patterns that Rebasoft can detect with ease. It can also detect when a user is trying to conceal their activity by using
a VPN, Tor, or an external WAN.
3. Automating network policy. If Rebasoft discovers an abnormal traffic flow or finds that a device is
acting suspiciously, it can automatically nullify port activity to that device, effectively quarantining it from the network until your IT team can investigate. Rebasoft also collates historic data about usage, aiding in post-vulnerability analysis and action.
In marrying hardware management and behaviour detection through one platform, Rebasoft equips businesses with complete situational awareness, enabling them to take action against zero-day vulnerabilities and insider threats. Automated monitoring also frees up technicians for more high-level tasks – notifying them only when additional input is needed.
1. Provides an accurate and “always on” picture of your network, enabling real-time malware and
compromise detection; asset management; and behaviour monitoring.
2. Gathers real-time network data from numerous telemetry protocols and collates it into a joined-up,
holistic picture of the network’s status quo.3. Acts as a single, easily shareable source of network analytics, enabling collaborative network
management, fewer security gaps, and a reduced need for additional monitoring systems.4. Displays detailed historic and real-time analytics through an intuitive interface, enabling informed
cybersecurity decisions and deep-dive troubleshooting.
5. Lightweight and effortlessly scalable monitoring solution that doesn’t stand in the way of growth and restructuring – ideal for enterprises and managed service providers alike.6. Provides flexible, automated alerting and port blocking, eliminating the need for manual network
observation.7. Identifies suspect connections from previously trusted third parties, remote workers, and obfuscated
VPN or Tor connections.8. Works seamlessly alongside existing anti-malware and firewall solutions to provide upmost network
security.9. Supports numerous NetFlow types, including sFlow, IPFIX, jFlow, and many more.
