Linux Security.

Automatically  Stop Attacks Before They Happen With Threat-Specific Protection Designed Specifically For Linux.

Revelocity recently polled industry-wide cyber security decision makers (CTOs, CISOs, ETC) and found:

YoY rise in attacks on critical data Linux hosted systems

The world urgently needs a security provider that prioritizes Linux

Only Synaptic Is Linux-First

Linux is the most critical component underlying systems in both private and public clouds, but existing solutions treat it like another Microsoft Windows PC. This means heavy agents, low portability, and layers of bloated functions better suited for user endpoint environments. The result is CPU and memory-intensive operations that degrade operational performance. Learn more about how to streamline security and operations for the world of Linux servers.

Synaptic proactively protects against attacks on web applications such as ecommerce sites and banking apps.  The Synaptic agent can be configured to pause an attack for review and threat hunting.  Stopping and remediating the attack by restoring any impacted files to their original state, removing the malware, and severing the connection of the attacker, to restore the system to its pre-attack state in just seconds is as simple as clicking on Remediate within the Alert.

Threat Tree

Threat Hunting and understanding the methods of attackers is essential for protecting critical systems.  The insights provided by the Synaptic Threat Tree starting with the point of incursion and detailing every new process spawned, commands with arguments executed, all IP connections either inbound or outbound, and any file manipulation on the attacked system give your Security and Threat teams the valuable visibility needed to identify and understand attacks and gives them the insights necessary to prevent future attacks.  The Synaptic Threat tree produces clear, actionable insights providing complete visibility of an attack within your Linux environment.


Protecting your critical systems is more than just protecting against malware.  It is also about protecting your customers’ experience and your reputation.  Outages due to attacks leave an impression.  Synaptic Security’s solution proactively protects your critical Linux based systems by automatically remediating and recovering from a ransomware attack.  The Synaptic solution detects, stops, and remediates ransomware attacks so your website continues to work and from the user’s perspective, there has been no service outage.  Synaptic can detect and stop ransomware attacks, with zero downtime to your application and zero interruption of service.
