Ransomware Protection Provider Seventh Knight Joins NADA Affinity Provider Program
TYSONS, Va. (February 10, 2022)—NADA is pleased to introduce Seventh Knight as its most recent vendor to the NADA Affinity Provider Program. Seventh Knight, a provider of unique ransomware protection solutions to Fortune 500 companies and to the defense industry, has developed an Embedded Solution with MaaS360 Technology powered by IBM. The layered solution secures enterprise networks from Ransomware and Zero Day attacks.
“With the growing threat of cyber ransom attacks to businesses of all sizes, NADA looked at a number of tools available in the marketplace to help dealers combat ransomware,” said NADA president and CEO Mike Stanton. “Seventh Knight offers a complete system that addresses the concerns many dealers have expressed about new and unknown data security threats, and it offers the ability to extend protection and management capabilities to every operating system and mobile device within an organization.”
NADA's Affinity Provider program provides NADA members with access to discounted pricing for select vendor products and services which help dealers address the issues and opportunities that are critical to their businesses. While NADA serves as the clearinghouse, Affinity providers offer products and services that are responsive to dealer demand, and providers are carefully selected once NADA has examined a number of vendor products and services.
“Car and truck dealerships may be more attractive for ransomware attacks than many other retailers, since they rely on a wide range of data to conduct their business and typically have dozens of users accessing their systems,” said Seventh Knight president Luke Koestler. “Dealers need to protect their businesses through education, and by implementing a strong defense such as Seventh Knight’s patented AppMoat System that allows users to run the software they need while simultaneously preventing malicious items from compromising either their local machines or any network connected devices.”
