Do you believe that your website is impenetrable and secure? If yes, then Hurry up and take up Array’s Challenge to claim your iPhone before 10th December 2018

November 16, 2018

  • The Web Vulnerability Scanning Challenge – by Array Networks – calls on companies to scan their website and check if there are any notorious vulnerabilities existing, if not stand a chance to win an iPhone
  • Array provides a whole new approach to security by making businesses smart, agile and more context-aware against the sophisticated web-based threats.

Array Networks,Inc., the network functions platform company, today announced a challenge where companies need to scrutinize their website and proof that they are future-ready and don’t have a loophole in the business environment.

We are not saying that your websites is not secure; but what if it’s really not? Are you ready to face the consequences? What happened in Equifax breach we wouldn’t want that to happen again? We are here to make you stronger & secure. So take up the challenge and let us know how secure you are. Look forward for more and more entries“, says Array Networks.

Why Array initiated this challenge? 

Importance of Web Vulnerability Scanning

Since the dawn of the internet age, every year we witness some new kind of disturbing security breach making headlines. If we look back, there were multiple security outbreaks like WannaCry, NotPetya, GitHub and of course Equifax breach which ended up compromising a nearly 150 million American’s personal data. The number and type of malicious attacks and digital security threats will continue to increase, creating a daunting challenge for companies and IT experts responsible for defending the infrastructure.

In the past, we have witnessed that not only the sheer volume of threats has increased, but the threat landscape has also become more divergent, making attackers opt for new avenues of attack which are yet to discover. Recent notorious vulnerabilities include the heartbleed vulnerability in OpenSSL, multiple high-risk vulnerabilities in Apache Struts2, and Shellshock vulnerability. By this challenge, Array wants to ensure that these vulnerabilities don’t exist in website.

How to win an iPhone –

Step 1: Click here to register, and start your scan!

Step 2: If no vulnerabilities are detected, submit the scan report to <mailto:%20sales@arraynetworks.com> sales@arraynetworks.com and stand a chance to ‘win an iPhone’

What Experts need to say on Web Vulnerability?

We live in a connected world. With trends like IoT, cloud, etc., enterprises are finding it increasingly difficult to protect themselves from threats coming from multiple channels and devices. We are evolving and so does hackers. I mean, some of the new generation hackers use evasion techniques like dynamic or random port numbers or application emulation, which poses an even greater challenge for enterprises,” says Shibu Paul, Regional Director (APAC) at Array Networks.

With increasing number of users accessing web applications on a daily basis, intentional or unintentional leakage of information has become a major concern for enterprises. Last year, we saw a sudden spurt in the data breach incidents, with almost 70% attacks happening through web-based apps or email. The attacks were also of a much larger scale both in terms of complexity and extent of damage,” Vinod Pisharody, CTO at Array Networks.

Once an organization’s network or website is compromised, it can take weeks, months, or longer to detect the malware in the network causing the organization to lose valuable data and on the other hand risking financial and reputation damage,” adds Mr. Pisharody. 

Detect, Investigate and Identify malicious activity

To combat security breaches, enterprise requires advanced security solutions that can adapt to advanced threats and continuously changing business demands. Being dependent on simple monitoring and traditional security tools is no longer enough. Security experts need broader insights which can be provided by security threat intelligence.

Security intelligence tools are not here to replace existing security controls and applications, but rather to complement them.”

Terms and Conditions

  1. Scan must be activated before 1 December, 2018.
  2. Scan must be completed and submitted before 10 December, 2018.
  3. Only one scan allowed per company.
  4. If you are an SI or MSSP, you can submit as many as possible, limited to one scan per company.
  5. All completed submissions will stand a chance to win an iPhone.
  6. Last date for submissions is 10 December, 2018.
  7. Array will have the final discretion and decision on any dispute that arises.

Are we ready to face complexity of modern enterprise cloud environments? 74% of CIOs fear IoT performance problems

November 13, 2018

Over two-thirds of CIOs say IoT will become a major burden as IoT multiplies the complexity of enterprise cloud ecosystems. And could derail operations thereby significantly damaging revenues

Dynatrace, Software intelligence company, today announced the findings of an independent global survey of 800 CIOs, which reveals that nearly three-quarters (74%) of IT leaders are concerned that Internet of Things (IoT) performance problems could directly impact business operations and significantly damage revenues.

This is mostly because 78% of CIOs said there is a risk that their organization will roll-out IoT strategies without having a plan or solution in place to manage the performance of the complex cloud ecosystems that underpin IoT rollouts. In fact, 69% of CIOs predicted that IoT will become a major performance management burden as they struggle to overcome the escalating complexity of their modern enterprise cloud environments.

Businesses across every industry are eagerly exploring IoT’s potential to engage new markets, drive new revenue and create stronger competitive advantage,” said Dave Anderson, Digital Performance Expert at Dynatrace. “However, IoT ecosystems and delivery chains are intricate and boundless, which creates unprecedented frequency of change, size and complexity in the cloud environments on which they are built. Enterprises are already struggling to master cloud complexity and now IOT substantially magnifies this challenge.

Praveen Mahajan, Regional Director India, Dynatrace said, “The report doesn’t include the Indian CIOs views on the complexities of IoT. But that doesn’t mean that India is not leveraging cloud services and is untouched with these complexities. With a lot of initiatives around Digital India, we are already picking up the pace at a much higher rate than any other country. SaaS has already made its roads in India. According to a study by IDC, India stands at 3rd rank on the list of Asia Pacific (excluding Japan) in spending on public cloud services.

Overcoming the Complexity of Web-Scale IoT Applications

The report looks at the challenges organizations face in maintaining seamless software experiences as they continue to roll-out IoT ecosystems.

Key findings include (Out of 800 CIOs):

  • The scale of IoT is just too big to manage in a traditional way:

73% worry that the number of third-parties and internal resources involved in IoT service delivery chains will make it incredibly difficult to identify who is responsible when performance problems arise

52% say understanding the impact that IoT platform providers and network operators have on performance is a key challenge in managing user experience in IoT

75% are concerned that problems within the platform or network layer could be hidden from them by an IoT service provider; impacting the performance of their applications

  • It’s impossible to master IoT complexity manually:

84% believe that AI capabilities and the ability to automate most of the processes that support IoT deployments will play a crucial role in the success of their IoT strategies

  • IoT is losing its ability to meet user expectations:

70% worry that consumer and user expectations for faster, fault free experiences could soon increase beyond what IT teams are able to deliver

69% fear losing control over the user experience as the IoT delivery chain continues to become more convoluted

64% are worried that the spiraling numbers of wearables could soon make it impossible to manage mobile performance for such devices

  • IoT creates new user experience headaches, including:

Ensuring that IoT device firmware updates and security patches don’t have a negative performance impact (62%)

Having the ability to track application behaviour on IoT devices as they interact with cloud services (60%)

Understanding the impact of IoT device performance on the user-experience (53%)

Mapping the rapidly growing IoT ecosystem as it expands (38%)

With so many digital transformations coming in, the Indian enterprise market is very receptive to new technologies that provide strategic business advantages. But are we fully prepared to utilise it? How to overcome the challenges of maintaining seamless software experience. Looking at the challenges, organizations need to think beyond traditional monitoring approach. What they need is a software intelligence platform that works at scale and simplifies IoT cloud complexity. In addition, it must provide full operational insights into vast ecosystems of IoT sensors, devices, gateways, applications and underlying infrastructure. With answers at their fingertips, rather than just more data on glass, organizations can leverage the benefits that IOT technologies have to offer,” adds Mr. Mahajan.
