Exeon empfiehlt konsequentes Monitoring von Fremdanwendungen

Das Schweizer IT-Security Unternehmen Exeon Analytics warnt davor, Fremdanwendungen bedingungslos zu vertrauen, unabhängig davon, ob es sich um Auftragsentwicklungen oder um Standard-Lösungen renommierter Hersteller handelt. Problematisch ist bei solchen Anwendungen, dass sie oft sehr weitgehende Berechtigungen benötigen oder unnötigerweise bekommen. Dabei agiert solche Fremdsoftware meist als Blackbox ohne Transparenz in die einzelnen Aktionen oder Datenströme.

Managed Security Services mit Ensec und Exeon

Aufgrund von komplexen und verteilten IT-Prozessen, steigenden Personalkosten und einem zunehmenden Bedarf an IT-Sicherheits-Lösungen, entscheiden sich immer mehr Firmen für Managed Security Services (MSS). Dabei übernimmt ein IT-Dienstleister den Aufbau und Betrieb einer geeigneten, individuell angepassten Sicherheitsarchitektur bestehend aus einzelnen IT-Security Services. Allerdings gibt es massgebliche Unterschiede zwischen den einzelnen Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP). Um besser zu verstehen, was das MSS-Angebot unseres erfolgreichen Partners ensec auszeichnet, haben wir dessen CTO Rolf Scheurer um ein Interview gebeten.

Why Organisations Need Both EDR and NDR for Complete Network Protection

As organisations require a reliable monitoring solution to protect their endpoints from potential threats. As Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) only provides such protection to a certain extent, organisations must reinforce their security defences with a Network Detection and Response (NDR). Their combined detection capabilities can effectively protect organisations from sophisticated cyberattacks.

My first month at Exeon

We usually write a lot about industry news and our cutting-edge Network Detection & Response solution, ExeonTrace. However, just as much can be told about our company's core: the Exeon Team. In the first few months of 2022, our team grew by over 30%, and we are ambitious to expand even further in the future. With this mini blog series, our talented new colleagues will provide personal insights into working at Exeon and how they experienced their first days. In this first blog post, we interviewed Noè Canevascini, our new Recruitment and IT support intern.

Ransomware and the Need for NDR to Provide Robust Protection

Ransomware is one of the most worrying cybersecurity threats for organisations worldwide. In February 2022, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) issued a Cybersecurity Advisory cautioning organisations against the "increased ransomware threat" in 2022. Without proper security controls in place, any organisation is vulnerable to the catastrophic impact of ransomware attacks.

Third-party cyber risks – and how ExeonTrace can provide complete system transparency

Modern networks have a multitude of third-party systems in use. Consequently, third party applications have become a security-relevant priority in order to protect one's network. Security teams require complete transparency over their IT/OT network.

Network Detection & Response etabliert sich als zentraler Cybersecurity-Pfeiler

«Network Detection & Response» hat sich innert kürzester Zeit als führende Methode etabliert, um Hacker in Netzwerken frühzeitig zu identifizieren, bevor diese Schaden anrichten. Damit wird «Network Detection & Response» ein zunehmend zentraler Pfeiler einer modernen Cybersecurity-Architektur. Allein der Schweizer Anbieter Exeon Analytics AG hat im Laufe des vergangenen Jahres seine Kundenbasis verdreifacht.

Deep Packet Inspection vs. Metadata Analysis of NDR solutions

Today, most Network Detection and Response solutions rely on traffic mirroring and deep packet inspection (DPI). Traffic mirroring is typically deployed on a single core switch to provide a copy of the network traffic to a sensor which uses DPI to thoroughly analyse the payload. While this approach provides detailed analysis, it requires large amounts of processing power and is blind when it comes to encrypted network traffic. Metadata analysis has been specifically developed to overcome these limitations. By utilising metadata for analysis, network communications can be observed at any collection point and be enriched by information providing insights about encrypted communication.

Threat Hunting and Detection of the Log4j Exploit using the ExeonTrace NDR

The remote code execution vulnerability against Apache Log4j2 [https://nvd.nist.gov/vuln/detail/CVE-2021-44228] is one of the most severe vulnerabilities we have seen for a long time. It’s so severe because the vulnerability is very easy to exploit and the Log4j logging library is used by many Java applications. Thus, one must assume that nearly any larger organization is potentially affected, either due to software developed in-house or via Java software provided by suppliers. After giving some background, we’ll explain how one can identify exploited systems using our ExeonTrace NDR software in this blog post.

NDR Evaluation Criteria

An NDR solution allows an enterprise to strengthen its security defence against advanced cyberthreats and other non-malware attacks. As more enterprises opt to leverage cloud technologies and IoT devices in their IT environment, having an NDR solution is a must for any company that wants to become cyber resilient in today's information age.

SOC Visibility Triad and the role of NDR solutions

Boosted by the continual advancement of digital technologies, cyberattacks are increasing in number and sophistication. The variety of legacy and modern IT systems in use, the interconnection of appliances (that used to run isolated), and the vast number of third-party suppliers are increasingly challenging to holistically protect the IT landscape.

Why ExeonTrace is the NDR of choice for CISOs of industry-leading companies across Europe

Computer networks are the foundation of today's information age and protecting them is a crucial element to ensure the proper functioning of most IT solutions. As most organisations become heavily dependent on computer networks to facilitate work operations, a disruption in network service can have catastrophic consequences on the affected entity.

Attack on MS Exchange Server: BSI declares "red" alert for the first time in seven years

Cyber attacks are becoming more frequent and more serious. The most recent example is the worldwide attack on Microsoft's Exchange Server: In March, hackers infiltrated the system via four security holes. This allowed them to log in as administrator without a password and thus read emails or access passwords and devices of their victims in the network. An estimated 250,000 systems were affected - 30 per cent of them in the DACH region. The fact that so many companies in German-speaking countries fell victim to the attack is no coincidence. In many places, especially in medium-sized businesses, the necessary security awareness is still lacking.

Visibility NOW – complete visibility of network activities, faster than ever before

Cyber attacks are becoming more and more frequent and the damage caused to companies is correspondingly greater. Exposed entry points for hackers (Microsoft Exchange, SolarWinds, etc.) are just the tip of the iceberg. Phising activities on employees are also becoming increasingly sophisticated. In short, whether hackers are active in your network is only a matter of time - if they're not already in it. Fast, reliable and holistic network monitoring for early detection of anomalies is therefore more important than ever.

Supply chain attacks. The open back door into your IT network

Cyber attackers typically exploit a company’s weakest link to break in and steal data or launch a ransomware attack. Thus, the better you protect your company’s IT infrastructure from external intruders, the safer it is, right? Unfortunately, this is not necessarily true, as you can also be at risk through your trusted suppliers.

The return of ransomware

Ransomware as a cyber threat is on the rise. Over the summer companies like Meier Tobler, Omya and various German hospitals were affected. Hackers infiltrate businesses through malicious emails, steal and encrypt critical data. Companies are forced to pay a ransom or face the complete loss of their data. The aftermath of an attack can cost companies millions of dollars! While regular data back-ups help to prevent a complete loss, costs related to business interruptions and the risk of having trade secrets revealed should not be underestimated. I strongly recommend to make life hard for every attacker in your system, through a restrictively configured firewall. If you want to know how Exeon helps you to detect holes in your firewall, read the full blogpost or book directly a personal video call.
