LUCY Security remains innovative and grows in Asia and South America

  • Deutsche Bahn is a major new customer of renown. This proves that customers of all sizes can benefit from the product’s new efficiency potential
  • With the Chilean Pentest SPA, LUCY Security was able to win a very renowned partner in South America. The company offers its services far beyond national borders.
  • In India, LUCY Server is already very popular. Indian company Irisk Assurance is now the first partner on the subcontinent
  • The current version of LUCY V3.7 has a lot of new functionality for the automated analysis of suspicious emails by the user.

ZURICH (06.11.2017) The Equifax Databreach in the United States and the wave of phishing attacks on the largest Swiss email portal bluewin.ch at the end of October clearly show the technical, organizational and personnel weaknesses of today’s security arrangements.  It is therefore not surprising that the Swiss provider of cyber prevention products LUCY Security continues to grow rapidly and internationally. In recent months, Chilean and Indian partner companies have been trained and certified to handle the product LUCY Server. The customer portfolio is also growing internationally and Deutsche Bahn has gained a reference that is known far beyond the German border. Deutsche Bahn can also benefit from the new and comprehensive interface capabilities of LUCY V 3.7.

We are happy about the indian summer hat-trick: First of all, we have found a partner in Pentest SPA, who was missing in South Merica. The company is highly qualified and well known in the market. The team has built up an astonishing amount of know-how about our LUCY server in the last few months. This will finally allow Spanish speaking customers to have access to local support, which in our experience is an important success factor for South American business. Secondly, there is our new Asian partner Irisk Assurance, with whom we have been working for a long time. Now we were able to complete the cooperation with a certification. Customers in India and the Middle East will thus also have a competent contact partner in the region. And thirdly, we are very pleased that „DB“ has chosen our product and that we can also publicly name this top-class reference customer with a consignment character,”says LUCY founder Oliver Münchow.

Protection against petya or #notpetya cyber attack

Zurich (June 28, 2017) Lucy Security is launching a new version of Lucy Server on July 1, which contains #notpeya simulations in the standard product. Lucy Security wants to contribute to the effective containment of malware with this action.

The worldwide #notpetya attack of June 27, 2017 has probably originated in an infected software update. But there are also reports that the spreading was carried out with the help of a spear phishing attack combined with a malware infected MS-Excel file.

The initial infection is first made possible by the carelessness of the user. In addition to the circumvention of the user vulnerabilities of the computer are specifically sought and exploited. Inadequate security settings in Windows allow only to install the malware permanently and to ensure the distribution. It is evident in this case that security is always a combination of man and technology, and should not be viewed in isolation.

LUCY is the world’s only provider of cyber prevention products, which actively simulates this combined attack pattern: users and additionally the IT infrastructure are tested jointly. In addition to phishing simulations, LUCY offers the unique malware simulation, which checks possibly unsecure Windows settings. Integrated learning modules are also included.

To this end, from 1 July the attack template, which is based on #notpetya, is available for download. For more information and a link to download Lucy Server at: www.lucysecurity.com/download

LUCY Security is growing and expanding: Value Added Partners in Great Britain and Canada

  • With approximately 50% of sales, the English-speaking areas represent the most important market area for the Swiss product manufacturer
  • The Cybersecurity training company, Kereon, strengthens its existing presence in the Canadian market.
  • The IT security service provider,  Neoteric Networks, is the second certified implementation partner in the UK.
  • The partners bring the cyber prevention product, LUCY, closer to local SMEs.

ZURICH (June-6-2017) the cyberattacks against companies haven’t halted. Smaller companies are particularly the sufferers of such attacks. The subject of cyber prevention is actually very topical in the English-speaking areas. With two additional partners in the UK and Canada, the Swiss company LUCY Security is responding to the strong demand.

LUCY-Security is a Swiss company, with customers in over 50 countries. The product, LUCY-Server, enables companies to be able to implement realistic cyberattacks simulations for testing purposes, since 2015. At the same time, customized security awareness programs and early warning systems can be used to increase cyber security for employees. The LUCY Server also performs the first-time cyber prevention in the form of a standardized product that is affordable for everyone. In addition customers are given the opportunity to test and improve their IT security, even without special know-how.

Through the LUCY partners in the UK and Canada, our do-it-yourself products are moving closer to the less globally operating small and medium-sized enterprises. Having a local partner (on site) helps us a lot, especially as our LUCY Server is much more known in the English-speaking market than at home in Switzerland. The USA, Canada and the UK contribute to almost half to the turnover”, says LUCY founder Oliver Münchow.

Our evaluation has shown that LUCY-Server is the best tool for performing phishing tests for our customers and partners. The flexibility and ease-of-use of the user interface enables us to save a lot of time, prepare different scenarios, and to carry out campaign during operations. We can only recommend LUCY!” – Patrick Chouinard, Chairman of Kereon.
