Why Do Modern Businesses Need Managed Security Services?

Why Do Modern Businesses Need Managed Security Services?

Cybersecurity incidents are becoming increasingly common in the modern world, so your organization needs to have policies in place to safeguard your digital assets. While large organizations may be able to support an in-house cybersecurity team, many small and medium-sized businesses have neither the capital nor the people power to support such a resource-intensive department.
This is where Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) come in. MSSPs can offer your organization all of the benefits of a personal team of cybersecurity experts without the significant overhead costs associated with an in-house department. 

Stay Up to Date on Cybersecurity Threats

A cybercriminal only has to breach your defenses once to gain unauthorized access to your systems. Your organization has to thwart their efforts every single time to ensure those digital assets remain secure.
Detecting and tracking credible threats, monitoring systems for suspicious activity, and ensuring your defenses are up to snuff is a full-time job. A good MSSP not only performs all of these critical tasks for you, but they do so 24/7/365 and are staffed by a team of diverse experts who can pinpoint which potential threats are credible, and have the skills and knowledge to safeguard your assets effectively.

Rapid Incident Response

If a cybersecurity incident does occur, an MSSP is poised and ready to respond effectively. Their team of experts will work to pinpoint the breach, determine how it occurred, and work with you to shore up your defenses. They can also help you assess the damage, identify vulnerabilities and gaps in your current cybersecurity defenses, and craft new policies to address those limitations.
Once the incident has been dealt with, your MSSP can also help you train your employees to prevent or mitigate future incidents, and can even run tabletop scenarios or pen tests to help your team test out their new skills and strategies in a no-stakes environment.

Extend Your Team While Minimizing Costs

A good MSSP should feel like an extension of your own team, integrating smoothly into your existing structure while bringing valuable expertise and experience to the table. By outsourcing your cybersecurity to an MSSP, you can avoid the substantial overhead costs associated with supporting an in-house team and the hassle of hiring and retaining qualified employees in the midst of a severe shortage of cybersecurity talent in the United States.

Focus on Your Business

Not everyone is a cybersecurity expert, and that is okay. Though every organization needs to have robust yet flexible policies in place to safeguard their digital assets, your role in your organization is to do what you do best: your job.
When you hire a good MSSP, you can rest assured that your organization’s cybersecurity is in good hands and focus on your business.

Manage Risk & Compliance

A good MSSP will help you safeguard your digital assets and help you ensure that your organization is compliant with all relevant legal and regulatory rules. Rules and regulations are typically convoluted and may change suddenly with little warning, so it is imperative that you have access to a team of experts who can ensure your organization remains compliant. If an incident does occur, your MSSP can help you alert the relevant legal and regulatory authorities, by filing the appropriate reports.
Your MSSP can also help you effectively manage risk so that you can minimize the chances of a breach occurring in the first place.

Why Your Company Could be the Next Equifax or CapitalOne

Why Your Company Could be the Next Equifax or CapitalOne

Though many of us may only hear about big cybersecurity incidents like the Equifax breach of 2017 and the CapitalOne hack of 2019, cybersecurity incidents are becoming increasingly common in the modern world.
Many C-suite executives and other decision-makers likely shook their heads as they read about these and other serious cybersecurity incidents, thankful that that sort of thing could never happen to their organization. Unless you have a flexible and robust cybersecurity strategy in place, stay up-to-date on current threats, and have a post-breach playbook, the unfortunate reality is that your organization could experience a similar beach.

You Aren’t Up to Date on Cybersecurity Threats

You can’t adequately protect your organization and safeguard your digital assets if you don’t know what you are safeguarding your assets from. The cybercriminal landscape is continuously shifting and changing, and new threats are popping up every day.
Cybercriminals don’t work nine to five, Monday through Friday, so your cybersecurity team can’t either. Your team needs to be able to monitor threats 24/7/365.
Safeguarding Your Data

You Aren’t Adequately Safeguarding Your Data

Not only do you need to stay up to date on all potential threats, but you and your team need to have the knowledge and skills necessary to protect your assets and thwart any would-be breaches before they occur. If you do not have an adequate cybersecurity strategy in place to safeguard your data, you are vulnerable to a breach or other cybersecurity incident.

Your Employees Need More Training

Every employee, from the CEO all the way down the ladder, is responsible for cybersecurity. Employees need to understand why cybersecurity is important, what they can do to help safeguard your organization’s digital assets (from selecting strong passwords to reporting suspicious emails), and what they need to do if a breach or other incident occurs.
Not only do employees need to be trained, but their training should be ongoing and reviewed regularly. Tabletop scenarios and pen tests can help your team keep their skills up to date and avoid getting rusty. These scenarios also give your team a chance to test out your current cybersecurity protocols and analyze the efficacy of their response in a zero-risk environment so that they can be better prepared if an incident does occur.
Poorly trained or inadequately trained employees are a security risk, and may not even know they have compromised your cybersecurity or inadvertently caused a breach until the damage is already done.

You Don’t Have an Offboarding Process

While most organizations have a formal, or even informal, onboarding process (sorting out ID badges, assigning desks, signing paperwork), many organizations lack formalized protocols for offboarding employees who are leaving the organization.
When someone leaves your organization, you need to have a formal checklist in place for removing their access to critical systems as well. This includes removing access to internal systems as well as asking them to turn over their keys, ID badge, and any company equipment they were granted the use of during their time with the company.
Post Breach Cybersecurity Plan

You Don’t Have a Post-Breach Plan

Unfortunately, too many organizations don’t have adequate post-breach protocols in place. This means that when an incident does occur both employees and management are ill-prepared to deal with the aftermath. Being unprepared can not only prevent you from properly addressing the breach and shoring up your defenses, but it could cause you to inadvertently run afoul to regulations such as GDPR because you are unable to craft the necessary comprehensive reports.
Reacting poorly to a breach can also harm your reputation and damage the trust you have worked hard to build with clients or customers.

Your Permissions Are Too Permissive

The hacker responsible for the CapitalOne hack may have used her insider knowledge of Amazon Web Service’s systems to exploit a bug and gain unauthorized access to CaptialOne’s private servers, but once she was inside it was CapitalOne’s excessive permissions that allowed her to gain access to the data of nearly 100 million Americans.
The way CapitalOne had configured their internal permissions meant that once the hacker was inside, she encountered almost no resistance and was able to easily view and read a wide selection of private files, and export them. By implementing policies such as zero-trust architecture, you can contain a hacker and prevent them from moving freely about the system should they be able to gain access. Zero-trust architecture works like RFID keycards: you need to verify who you are each time you try to access private or sensitive areas of the system.

An MSSP Can Help

All of this may seem overwhelming. Cybersecurity is complicated, and there are a lot of things you need to consider to ensure that your organization’s digital assets remain secure. A good Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) can help you craft tailored cybersecurity strategies to meet your needs, monitor your systems 24/7/365 for potential threats, provide ongoing support, help you train your employees, and help you mitigate damage and ensure compliance if a cybersecurity incident does occur.

CENTENNIAL, Colo., Sept. 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — VirtualArmour International Inc. (CSE:VAI) (OTCQB:VTLR), a premier cybersecurity managed services provider, has been named to MSSP Alert, published by After Nines Inc., Top 200 MSSPs list for 2019 at number 61.

The list and research identify and honor the top 200 managed security services providers (MSSPs) that specialize in comprehensive, outsourced cybersecurity services. The rankings are based on MSSP Alert’s 2019 readership survey combined with aggregated third-party research. MSSPs featured throughout the list and research proactively monitor, manage and mitigate cyber threats for businesses, government agencies, educational institutions and nonprofit organizations of all sizes. This year’s edition, at twice the size, reflects MSSP Alert’s rapidly growing readership and the world’s growing consumption of managed security services.

“It is a great achievement for VirtualArmour to be recognized and listed alongside many innovative and progressive global managed security services companies,” said VirtualArmour CEO,  Russ Armbrust. “As concerns around cybersecurity continue to gain consistent global attention, the demand for customizable solutions by enterprise clients has been growing exponentially. Our skilled teams and proprietary prevention technologies enabled us to capitalize on this global market opportunity, and we’re well positioned to grow with the accelerating market.”

“After Nines Inc. and MSSP Alert congratulate VirtualArmour on this year’s honor,” said  Amy Katz, CEO of After Nines Inc. “Amid the ongoing cybersecurity talent shortage, thousands of MSPs and IT consulting firms are striving to move into the managed security market. The Top 200 list honors the MSSP market’s true pioneers.”

MSSP Alert: Top 200 MSSPs 2019 – Research Highlights

The MSSP Alert readership survey revealed several major trends in the managed security services provider market. Chief among them:

  • The Top 5 business drivers for managed security services are talent shortages; regulatory compliance needs; the availability of cloud services; ransomware attacks; and SMB customers demanding security guidance from partners.
  • 69% of MSSPs now run full-blown security operations centers (SOCs) in-house, with 19% leveraging hybrid models, 8% completely outsourcing SOC services and 4% still formulating strategies.
  • Although the overall MSSP market enjoys double-digit percentage growth rates, many of the Top 200 MSSPs have single-digit growth rates because they are busy investing in next-generation services – including managed detection and response (MDR), SOC as a Service, and automated penetration testing.

The Capital One Hack: The Latest in a Series of High-Profile Breaches

The Capital One Hack: The Latest in a Series of High-Profile Breaches

It seems like almost every day brings news of another large, high-profile hack affecting millions of Americans and other users around the world. Though wide-reaching hacks affecting large companies and millions of users are more likely to make the news, the reality is that cybercriminals are increasingly targeting small and medium-sized organizations as well.
Cybercriminals are constantly evolving and changing their tactics in the hopes that they can stay ahead of cybersecurity experts. Looking back on high-profile hacks like the CapitalOne hack can give us insight into how cybercriminals operate and help us craft robust cybersecurity policies that allow us to approach cybercrime in a way that works to preemptively safeguard digital assets.

What Happened?

The CapitalOne hack occurred on March 22nd and 23rd of this year but was not discovered by CapitalOne until July 19th. The incident affected credit card applications as far back as 2005. The hacker, Paige Thompson, is accused of breaking into a CapitalOne server and gaining unauthorized access to 140,000 Social Security Numbers, 1 million Canadian Social Insurance Numbers, and 80,000 bank accounts. She is also accused of accessing an undisclosed number of names, addresses, credit limits, credit scores, balances, and other personal information according to CapitalOne and the US Department of Justice. In total, the breach affected approximately 100 million Americans and 6 million Canadians.
As of the writing of this article, she is still awaiting trial.
Ms. Thompson, a former software engineer for Amazon, was able to gain access to the private server by exploiting a misconfigured firewall. The server is run by Amazon Web Services (AWS).

What We Learned

The Capital One Data Breach
Ms. Thompson was able to gain access to CapitalOne’s private AWS server by exploiting a misconfigured firewall, which she was able to trick into granting her access to critical back-end resources. The misconfigured firewall was not only vulnerable, but it had also been granted more permissions than it should have. This allowed Ms. Thompson to view a wide selection of files and read their contents. She was also allowed to export private information, thereby stealing sensitive CapitalOne customer data.
The type of vulnerability Ms. Thompson exploited is a well-known method called a Server Side Request Forgery (SSRF) attack. In this case, the server was tricked into running commands that it should never have had permission to run in the first place.
The CapitalOne hack taught us that even seemingly minor vulnerabilities can be exploited and that overly generous permissions pose a hazard. CapitalOne was also not aware of the breach until it was reported to them by someone who saw that Ms. Thompson had posted the private CapitalOne data on her GitHub page. If they had been monitoring their systems more closely, they might have been able to detect the breach right away instead of being made aware of it by a good Samaritan months later.

What Can You Do to Protect Your Organization

The Capital One Data Breach
The best thing you can do to protect your organization from hacks like the CapitalOne hack or any other cybersecurity incident is to be vigilant and take a preemptive position. It is always better to safeguard against potential threats than deal with breaches and hacks after they have already occurred.

Ensure Firewalls and Other Software is Up to Date

One of the simplest things you can do to protect your organization’s digital assets is to keep your software up to date. This includes cybersecurity specific software such as anti-virus software as well as the software your organization uses to conduct its everyday business.
When software companies detect flaws in their products, they release patches, which are small snippets of code designed to patch vulnerabilities or fix bugs. Cybercriminals look for these patches because they show them exactly where exploitable vulnerabilities exist in out-of-date software.
By keeping your software up to date, you can take advantage of these security fixes, making it more difficult for cybercriminals to gain unauthorized access to sensitive or proprietary data.
You should also review your cybersecurity protocols regularly so that they can be updated or adjusted according to your evolving needs. Regular reviews and audits also help ensure that your employees know how to spot suspicious activity, and whom they should report it to.

Limit Permissions

The CapitalOne server was granted too many permissions, which allowed Ms. Thompson to view and export large amounts of sensitive information. Should your organization experience a hack, limited permissions can help limit cybercriminal access.
By limiting permissions for both software and employees to only what these entities need to complete their jobs you make it more difficult for a cybercriminal to access sensitive or proprietary sections of your infrastructure, slowing them down and limiting the damage they can inflict. Slowing cybercriminals down helps ensure that their activities are noticed before they can cause too much damage or gain access to other systems.

Monitor Everything

You can’t mount an effective defense against a cyberattack if you don’t know one is happening. By monitoring all traffic on your network, both within the network and between your network and the Internet or other external programs, you can better keep an eye out for suspicious activity.
You should also make sure that the employees responsible for monitoring your systems have the appropriate training to recognize suspicious activities and either report them or investigate them themselves.

Have an Official Offboarding Process

Ms. Thompson knew the vulnerability was there because she had worked as a software engineer for Amazon, who owned and maintained the server used by CapitalOne. Though Ms. Thompson had to hack her way into the server, too many companies don’t have proper offboarding processes in place to revoke permissions for former employees.
By making sure you have proper procedures in place to revoke access to your organization’s systems, you can help prevent disgruntled former employees from using their permissions to gain unauthorized access.

Consider an MSSP

Keeping your software up to date and limiting permissions are both critical, but will only get you so far. To stay one step ahead of cybercriminals, you need to ensure that your current cybersecurity protocols are both robust enough to safeguard your digital assets effectively and flexible enough to adapt to the ever-changing cybersecurity landscape.
Not every organization is large enough to support an in-house cybersecurity team, and that is okay. A Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) consists of a team of cybersecurity experts, who can help you create tailor-made cybersecurity solutions to meet your organization’s unique needs, provide employee training, monitor your systems for suspicious activity, and help you limit or even avoid damage should a cybersecurity incident occur.

CENTENNIAL, Colo., Aug. 05, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — VirtualArmour International Inc. (CSE:VAI) (OTCQB:VTLR), a premier cybersecurity managed services provider, has expanded its security services engagement with a leading global satellite service provider that provides comprehensive, end-to-end managed network services around the world. The contract value totals more than $330,000.

The VirtualArmour network architecture and engineering team has been brought in to conduct a thorough evaluation of the infrastructure of this existing client, to determine the exact state of both the physical and logical topology, as well as the state of the various routing and transport protocols operating within the environment, with the goal of identifying performance or security gaps.

The hardware portion of this project was won with high-performance networking and security solutions from Juniper Networks. This opportunity will build on the almost $2M additional hardware, software and services deals that have been closed since January of 2019 for this customer.

“We engaged VirtualArmour to provide a complete network audit of a large portion of our network gateways. These gateways serve as the key link between our satellites in orbit and the ground network infrastructure that carries network traffic between satellites and ultimately delivers it to the global internet backbone,” states the Vice President of Network Strategy and IT, from the company. “The gateway network was built many years ago and has been continuously modified since its initial inception. Slight differences between each gateway has accumulated over time resulting in operational difficulties and lack of visibility into the environment. With VirtualArmour’s knowledge and expertise with our network, this project will seamlessly and securely increase our services provided to billions of people worldwide.”

“In the satellite industry, a significant cost can be associated with every byte transferred across the satellite network, and network efficiency is of utmost importance,” stated VirtualArmour’s Vice President of Product,  Tianyi Lu. “By reducing the operational overhead, significant business savings can be had that will ultimately reduce the operating costs for our client and that will lead to an improved bottom line.’’
