Tenable Says Good Cyber Hygiene Practice Must To Prevent Clop-Type Ransamware Attacks

July 29, 2020

The Indian Computer Emergency Response Team (CERT-In) recently notified Windows users about CLOP, a new ransomware that can be distributed through fake software updates, trojans, spam emails, cracks and unofficial software downloads. Once a user’s systems is compromised, information is leaked if the ransomware negotiations fall through.

Comment from – Adam Palmer, Chief Cybersecurity Strategist at Tenable

CLOP appears to have been recognised by security researchers since 2019 as a variant of other common malware attacks. The reality is monetisation of ransomware is the result of poor cyber hygiene practices such as failing to patch exploitable vulnerabilities and avoiding the common methods by which this malware is distributed – phishing emails, preventing unofficial software updates or downloads, and so on. Security experts suspect that the bug (CVE-2019-19781) in the Citrix Netscaler ADC VPN gateway was used to carry out the attack so it’s important users patch this vulnerability immediately. 

Victims should avoid bending over backwards to meet ransomware demands and only make payment as a last resort. Remember, that you’re dealing with untrustworthy criminals and that means payment does not always guarantee access to data or that these criminals won’t try to pull the same trick again. Payment also perpetuates the crime as it continues to be a revenue stream for the attackers.” – Adam Palmer, Chief Cybersecurity Strategist at Tenable.


Underwriter Laboratories Certifies NetRack’s NRSs Seismic Series

July 28, 2020

BENGALURU, India – July 28, 2020 – NetRack, a leading solution provider for DCs and end-to-end IT server racks, has acquired the Underwriter Laboratories (UL) certification for its NRSs series product line. NRSs (Seismic) Series are ultra-rigid racks for high-density applications in data centers, telecommunications and server rooms, specially designed for the seismic zones.

Data center (DC) industry is evolving, and more research and development is being put into bringing forth cutting edge DC technology. To keep up with the growing DC demands, NetRack ensures that it follows the globally recognized safety and compliance standards to stay on top. Certification from UL for NRSs Series is a result of one such effort. Underwriter Laboratories (UL) is over a century old third-party certification company headquartered in Northbrook, Illinois. They certify products with the aim to make the world a safer place for both employees and consumers. Besides testing, they set industry standards to follow when innovating new products. When a customer wants to choose between a product with UL certification and that which isn’t, it is the certification that helps them to make the right choice and manufacturers like NetRack with UL certification show their continued commitment towards safety and quality.

Quality and safety standards have been a top priority for NetRack. We have always maintained compliance with globally recognized safety standards. For acquiring UL certification, NetRack has agreed to rigorous examination, testing and follow-up surveillance while maintaining compliance with nationally recognized safety standards. The certification guarantees the safety and reliability of the products, and also aids in ensuring brand loyalty and long-term business success,” said Mr Ravi Raj U, Brand Head, Director- Sales & Support at NetRack.

As per National Building Code 2016 Edition (NBC 2016), considering the operability of essential facilities such as hospitals, airports, emergency response centers, data centers and buildings vital to national defence along with the building, non-structural components should also be seismically isolated. Since the racks are the major passive component for hosting IT equipment, it has to be seismic proof.

To reduce risk & injury and minimize equipment damage during an earthquake, proper seismic protection is essential. This is especially important in telecommunications, server rooms and data centers that cannot afford any downtime. Selecting the right infrastructure products for a DC is crucial to get the most protection for servers, switches and cables. During the seismic activity, seismic rated building will take the major seismic vibration and small frequencies would be passed onto nonstructural components like racks and these racks should be in a position to withstand those minor frequencies.

As crucial as complying with building codes, understanding what goes behind deeming a product seismic-ready is also important as different approaches are used to make such determination. The NRSs series racks are manufactured out of steel sheet, punched, formed, welded and powder coated with highest quality standards under stringent ISO 9001 | ISO 14001 | ISO 27001 | ISO 45001. Manufacturing and quality management systems have an added advantage of having the highest safety standards of being UL certified. NetRack’s NRSs Series is available in 36RU ~ 47RU variants with 1,000 & 1,200 depth configurations, 600 & 800 width configurations. NRSs has various brazing options to meet the seismic zone requirements.

NetRack offers a variety of products that deal with the modern concerns of organizations, including cooling arrangements, heat dissipation, cable management and also effective power consumption. The entire product portfolio can be customized based on customers’ requirements. The product range of NetRack is UL certified, environment-friendly and follows all the international guidelines for product manufacturing.

FORCEPOINT DYNAMIC EDGE PROTECTION DELIVERS INDUSTRY’S FIRST TRUE DATA-CENTRIC SASE SOLUTIONS

July 27, 2020

  • Forcepoint Dynamic Edge Protection’s new suite of SASE solutions, including Cloud Security Gateway and Private Access, addresses enterprises’ mass telework security needs while reducing security complexity and point product interoperability challenges
  • New Forcepoint Cloud Security Gateway delivers 30% reduction in software cost of ownership with all-in-one converged security offering featuring Secure Web Gateway, CASB and DLP capabilities as a single service
  • New Forcepoint Private Access cloud service provides true zero-trust remote access to internal applications without the complexity, bottlenecks and risks of VPNs

NEW DELHI/BENGALURU, INDIA – July 27, 2020

Global cybersecurity leader Forcepoint today announced the introduction of its Dynamic Edge Protection suite of cloud-native SASE solutions featuring new Cloud Security Gateway and Private Access offerings. With today’s introduction, Forcepoint is delivering the industry’s most comprehensive suite of converged capabilities to address enterprises’ most critical work-from-home security challenges across network security, threat protection, secure access and data protection.

Forcepoint recognizes that solving today’s most pressing security problems requires tight integration of capabilities that cross traditional product boundaries, such as delivered through a SASE architecture approach.

According to Gartner’s June 30, 2020 report “Hype Cycle for Network Security, 2020″1, co-authors Neil MacDonald and Joe Skorupa wrote, “True SASE services are cloud-native – dynamically scalable, globally accessible, typically microservices-based and multitenant. The breadth of services required to fulfill the broad use cases means very few vendors will offer a complete solution in 2020.”

They continued, “SASE will enable I&O and security teams to deliver the rich set of secure networking and security services in a consistent and integrated manner to support the needs of digital business transformation, edge computing and workforce mobility. This will enable new digital business use cases (such as digital ecosystem and mobile workforce enablement) with increased ease of use, while at the same time reducing costs and complexity via vendor consolidation and dedicated circuit offload.”

Industry’s First True Data-Centric SASE Solutions

The Forcepoint Dynamic Edge Protection suite of SASE solutions enables enterprises to use the cloud to transform their network and security architectures, simplify connectivity and unify security policy enforcement throughout their distributed application and network environments. The company’s new converged cloud services, Cloud Security Gateway and Private Access, give global enterprises better visibility, control and protection for users and data against threats and loss, wherever people are working.

Forcepoint Cloud Security Gateway brings together the company’s market-leading Secure Web Gateway (SWG), Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) and Data Loss Prevention (DLP) technologies into a single centrally-managed cloud service. It provides full visibility and control for remote workers, sites and on-premises facilities. With Cloud Security Gateway, Forcepoint is taking the guesswork out of securing highly distributed enterprises as they transform to the cloud. This 100% cloud-native service is available as a single SKU, eliminating the complexity of purchasing, administering and supporting multiple products or solution bundles.

Forcepoint Private Access is a new cloud service that provides true zero-trust remote access and a built-in Firewall-as-a-Service (FWaaS) to protect internal applications without the complexity, bottlenecks and risks of VPNs. It gives organizations fine-grained control without exposing internal networks, and it frees remote users from having to work differently or suffer slower cloud performance. Unlike other vendors who offer private access products, Forcepoint Private Access protects internal applications and networks against potentially compromised remote devices and networks while also preventing the loss of sensitive information or intellectual property.

Together, Cloud Security Gateway and Private Access deliver global enterprises a modern cybersecurity path forward harnessing the power of the industry’s most comprehensive cloud-native suite of converged capabilities, including;

  • Network Security: Secure Web Gateway and Next-Generation Firewall as-a-service
  • Threat Protection: Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDPS), Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS), AntiVirus (AV), Advanced Malware Detection (AMD) all delivered as-a-service
  • Remote Browser Isolation (RBI) powered by Ericom
  • Secure Access: Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) and Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA)
  • Data Protection: Industry-leading cloud and endpoint Data Loss Prevention (DLP)

Today’s business environment is irrevocably changed as COVID-19 has introduced the security risks of the difficult-to-manage work-at-home environment. A SASE architecture approach that is cloud-first, end-user aware and powered by a converged security platform with unified user policy delivers a compelling path forward. With Cloud Security Gateway and Private Access, Forcepoint is today introducing the industry’s first true cloud-native SASE solutions, that make it easy for enterprises to adopt by simply extending their existing on-premises policy to the cloud to protect work-from-home users,” said Nico Popp, Chief Product Officer at Forcepoint. “Forcepoint’s data-centric SASE is the answer to securing the new mass telework workforce. For security teams today, it is as much about protecting the user against threats as it is about enabling home users to securely connect to corporate applications in the cloud and on-premises, while controlling and protecting the data that home users are accessing and moving to their insecure home.”

Simplified Per-User Pricing to Scale and Support Secure Remote Working

Customers can purchase an annual subscription to Cloud Security Gateway for $99 per user per year or Private Access for $79 per user per year. With Cloud Security Gateway, enterprises garner a 30% reduction in software cost of ownership versus bundled solutions available in the market today. Organizations can eliminate the need for multiple point products from different vendors and consolidate the adoption of required security capabilities as a service to secure the new ways of users working from anywhere.
