VCL-2702: Network Kill Switch:What is a Network Kill Switch and why does an organization require it?
VCL provides a comprehensive “Beyond the Firewall” cyber security solutions that designed to assist organizations to
prevent and secure their network against firewall breaches and cyber-attacks in real-time. The VCL-2702: Network Kill Switch is one such element that
forms a part of the cyber security suite of products that are offered by VCL.
Most network administrators rely solely on a “Firewall” to secure their IP networks. Some network administrators go
one step further and also deploy an additional “Network Traffic Sniffer” which monitors and flags the transmitted and received data anomalies. However,
very few network administrators actually plans for an eventuality after a “Firewall” has been breached and the “Network Traffic Sniffer” has recorded
anomalies in the data that is being transmitted and received.
The VCL-2702 “Network Kill Switch” provides the last-line-of-defence in the event of a network security breach. The VCL-2702 “Network Kill Switch” can be used in conjunction with a “Firewall”, “Network Traffic Sniffer” and multiple VCL-2143 “Network-MouseTrαp(s)™” to automatically initiate a series of defensive actions that would have been planned by the network administrator, in the event of a network security breach.
Such actions would include:

The VCL “Beyond the Firewall” cyber security suite of products do not negate or invalidate the role of the “Firewall” in any manner. The Firewall still remains the primary element of defence against cyber-attacks. However, cyber-attacks succeed because firewalls get breached. The deployment of the VCL “Beyond the Firewall” cyber-security solutions provide the next line of defence against firewall breaches to provide enhanced network security and resilience against cyber-attacks. The VCL-2702: Network Kill Switch becomes an indispensable tool to deploy defensive “counter-measures” that are to be automatically initiated in real-time, in accordance with the organization’s network security policy, in the event of a catastrophic network security breach.
