As a reseller you have the broadest visibility of what is truly happening out there: across multiple industries; different size customers; companies of different profiles. Your expert reputation is well established and you deploy robust solutions with confidence. Yet many in your shoes have been hesitant to offer security in their portfolios—historically much-too-complex.

SASE-Delivered Cyber-Security for Small-Medium Enterprises (SMEs)

SMEs are the most cost-conscious of organizations; there’s no money for large IT teams, nor for stacks of single-purpose boxes per location: it adds up quickly with more locations. Direct Internet Access (DIA) has been a life-saver (read: cost-saver). Employees using their own tablets, smartphones, and laptops has phenomenally brought down user device costs and headaches—employees even upgrade and refresh their devices themselves! Cloud applications are another absolution: no more servers, OS upgrades, boxes, more boxes, slow performance—with SaaS you pay-as-you-go and instantly scale up/down.

The SolarWinds attack leaves many unanswered questions and the most prominent amongst them is the question of how the attacker entered internal systems of SolarWinds network and was able to infiltrate and move inconspicuously across the development chain. The malware was able to camouflage its activity among the highly secure network of the prominent organization for an extended period of time, evading all their security detection and prevention defenses. In this particular blog, our team will mainly focus on the chain of events that occurred, and the evasive methods employed to remain completely stealthy despite moving around and compromising a highly secure network environment.

On December 13, 2020, FireEye reported a global campaign that targeted a large sector of industries by threat actors who inserted malicious code within a software component used by the popular network management software SolarWinds. It is not yet known how the threat actors managed to gain access to the development environment in which they added and distributed this malicious code as part of an update to the software. This trojanized version of the dynamic-link library (DLL) has been given the name ‘Sunburst’ by FireEye. Surprisingly enough, researchers have found evidence of the presence of a second backdoor in the SolarWinds product.

The National Security Agency published a list of 25 CVEs (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures) that were most exploited by threat actors in recent times. Some of these CVE’s were used to deliver malicious software that allowed monitoring remote networks, maintaining continued access to remote networks, and, in some cases, using these CVEs to pivot to other systems within the internal network. For example, CVE-2019-11510 was used to gain access to sensitive VPN information of user accounts and then use the credentials to deliver ransomware like Sodinokibi. Similarly, CVE-2019-0803 was used to establish a backdoor to gain and maintain access to…

For business continuity, enabling WFH pervasively is essential. Businesses looking to enable WFH must allow home workers to use their personal networks and devices to access business critical applications that may be hosted at a corporate datacenter or in the cloud. A robust, scalable, and secure work-from-home (WFH) solution ensures organizations can thrive regardless of any global, regional, or local events such as the pandemic of 2020. However, giving employees both the flexibility to work in the office or at home comes with its unique set of challenges.
