Safeguarding Manufacturing: Data Security Control

July 13, 2021 / by Charisma Burghouts

 

The Vulnerabilities.

Manufacturing involves multiple tiers of suppliers providing components that come together to create the end product. Each tier is an exercise in unique processes to the manufacturer and their third-party suppliers’ raw materials, production, inventory, and distribution. This complicated convergence of players, processes, and data creates a wicked infrastructure security problem.

Guide to Enterprise Key Management

June 24, 2021 / by Fornetix

With large-scale data breaches on the rise in the last few years, affecting millions of people, making sure your company’s sensitive information is safely encrypted and thus secure should be one of your top priorities. Encryption across your organization scales quickly — from securing file-servers to protecting user data — meaning that you could be looking at hundreds if not thousands of encryption keys. This is a lot of information for your team to handle, especially considering the importance of secure and properly managed keys. That’s where enterprise key management comes in.

Some Things Just Go Better Together, Like VMware and VaultCore

May 01, 2021 / by Alyssa Sheehan

Portability, versatility, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness are just a few of the advantages of moving to virtualized environments. Instead of requiring a data center full of equipment, virtualization lets organizations rely on just a few servers. A smaller footprint equals less power consumption, lowered cost of ownership, and less overhead. However, too often, enterprises neglect security when it comes to implementing virtualization. Now, VMware makes it possible to easily encrypt and manage virtual machines (VMs) in minutes.

Hardening Systems Against Attacks Like SolarWinds

March 24, 2021 / by Chuck White

How Key Management, PKI Controls, and Zero Trust Principles are Applied to Thwart Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs)

For years, cybersecurity professionals argued the importance of “zero trust networks” and their concerns have been fully validated in the wake of the SolarWinds incident. Hacking techniques likely used in the SolarWinds Sunburst attack include mapping of sIDHistory, Primary Group ID, as well as AdminSDHolder to help identify and obtain cached Active Directory credentials. The compromised SAML keys and cryptographic materials were then likely used to execute administrative control and exfiltrate data over an extended duration.

The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly of 5G for Business

February 19, 2021 / by Charisma Burghouts

The Good.

The advent of 5G is an exciting development in connectivity for most businesses. From the farmer who can now remotely monitor field conditions to the global manufacturing leader dependent upon a digital supply chain, to mom-and-pop shops offering real-time-customer service, 5G is changing the way business gets done. And both owners and consumers are enjoying the benefits!

For most, 5G still lacks the true “100 times faster” connection that service providers touted it would bring in 2019. But still, its improvements to speed and lower latency over 4G LTE for business connectivity have already established it as a game changer.

Although 5G is one of the fastest growing technologies in history with adoption 4x as fast as LTE, it will be years before 5G networks blanket the globe. However, explosive adoption is already well underway in the automotive, manufacturing, utilities, and healthcare industries, all of which have been catalysts for a rush on new IoT devices for business efficiencies, enhanced customer service, the movement of large amounts of data, and more.

As 5G network availability grows, the potential for 5G IoT business devices has grown exponentially. Unfortunately, the security risks have grown with it
