Cybercriminals use compromised machines’ IP addresses to stay anonymous. But by teaming together, Sysadmins, Devops & Secops can outnumber and identify them. This is the essence of CrowdSec: a collaborative effort to secure the Internet for the benefit of our countries, companies, institutions, privacies and personal data. Together.
“Through of decades spent working in cyber security, we realized the following: individuals and SMBs need robust security the most and are the ones that get it the least. We wanted to fix that issue and also bring a collaborative aspect to security so people and companies could have each other’s backs. Because security should be accessible to everyone.”
Automation of hacking, “HackOps”, led to a mass-scale, continuous stream of attacks, representing more than 80% of breaches. Nowadays, an IP is scanned more than 1000 times per day, and worldwide countless hack occur every day. Even with hundreds of millions of dollars in Cybersec investment, banks and industry leaders still fail to defeat hackers. How on earth could an SMB business succeed then?
Well, the game is rigged. Criminals benefit from a very asymmetrical and advantageous position. They only have to succeed once, they choose when to attack you, and attacking you with stolen resources and primarily free tools costs them close to nothing. On the defensive side, with servers to run, deployment, compliance, maintenance, and budgets required to acquire licenses, the complexity is exceptionally high.
At CrowdSec, we think the only viable option is to outnumber cybercriminals through a collaborative cybersecurity effort. We provide the tool, and you empower each other by using it. The best part? It’s free. Forever. Period.
