Security is a grave issue in today’s increasingly networked world. The best defense against an attack is to protect both your ERP and your data.
In this brand new white paper, prepared by David Lagacé, security expert and Syntax’s Senior Network Analyst, we’ve outlined the top 16 Security Pain Points and our exclusive 360 degree protection solutions.
Every business has poorly controlled machines that are more likely to be running unneeded, unpatched and unmonitored software, these can introduce security flaws.
Default accounts and passwords, open services, older protocols, etc. are all easily exploitable. Even strong configurations must be continuously monitored and managed to avoid security flaws.
Organizations that fail to scan for vulnerabilities and proactively address any flaws put their systems at risk of attack. Gaps form between threat advisories and new patches with when their final application occurs. Be better informed of any security flaws with vulnerability assessments.
Misuse of and lack of control over administrative privileges is an easy method for attackers to infiltrate a target enterprise.
With loose or deficient security logging, hackers can attack with impunity without the system owners knowing what’s going on.
Malicious software is a dangerous aspect of online threats and can be designed to attack systems, devices and data.
Attackers comb the internet for network services that are vulnerable to exploitation in order to access a system and cause damage.
When a system has been compromised it can extremely difficult for organizations without trustworthy data recovery capabilities to restore systems and remove all aspects of the attackers’ presence on the network.
Attackers search for vulnerabilities in firewalls, routers and switches to penetrate system defenses. They then exploit these flaws to gain access to networks, then sample traffic flows to attempt to discover sensitive, unencrypted information.
Increased interconnectivity within and between organizations, as well as the increased use of wireless technologies, has led to the diminishing of the boundaries between internal and external networks. These blurred lines can allow attackers access inside networks while bypassing protective systems.
Data is everywhere. While some data is leaked or lost due to theft or espionage, the larger reason for these issues results from missing data practices, lack of effective policies and user error.
Attackers seek out and exploit inactive user accounts (such as those of contractors or terminated employees) to impersonate legitimate users and gain access to enterprise systems.
People are the most common factor leading to information security failures. Make your personnel your first line of defense through security awareness training.
Attackers look to take advantage of coding or logic errors, incomplete requirements and failure to test for unusual conditions and use them for their own malicious purposes.
It is too late after an incident occurs to develop the right procedures that would allow a business to successfully recover from an attack. An incident response plan is the best proactive defense.
Attackers exploit gaps between current best security practices and their implementation or maintenance. The best way to prevent an attack is to know where it could be coming from.
