Privilege Management and Security Management Solutions Impede the Three Steps Common to Land and Expand Cyber Attacks
(Los Angeles, CA – June 8, 2015) – In today’s cyber security environment, a common assumption is that advanced zero day threats are now indefensible due to the sophisticated and automated nature of the attacks. This week, in booth 325 at the Gartner Security and Risk Management Summit, Lieberman Software Corporation is exhibiting technology that prevents zero day attacks from expanding throughout the enterprise.
“There’s an assertion among some cyber security firms that the types of zero day attacks that afflicted Sony Pictures, Home Depot and other enterprises are nearly impossible to block,” said Philip Lieberman, President and CEO of Lieberman Software. “Not only is this a fallacy, but we believe that with just a few simple changes in organizational IT behavior, and the deployment of automated security solutions, most cyber attacks can be contained.”
Modern, advanced cyber attacks are now launched on a nearly continuous basis against most enterprises. Many zero day attacks can easily penetrate conventional network perimeter defenses, allowing intruders to nest within the IT environment for extended periods of time. Once inside the network, attackers generally take these three common steps to expand their access, take control of the IT infrastructure, and access sensitive data:
• Establish a Foothold after an Initial Compromise
• Escalate Privileges and Attain Lateral Movement
• Extract Data and Conceal Tracks
These three stages of advanced cyber attacks can be addressed with Lieberman Software’s security management product User Manager Pro Suite (UMPS) and privileged identity management platform Enterprise Random Password Manager™ (ERPM). UMPS provides global removal of local administrator permissions on workstations and servers, while ERPM removes persistent elevated access throughout the enterprise. With this solution, intruders cannot extract and leverage the credentials they require to gain unrestricted and anonymous lateral movement throughout the network.
“Due to the advanced nature of today’s cyber attacks, intruders are already within most environments, and are nearly impossible to detect,” Lieberman said. “However, with an aggressive security posture and the right processes you can prevent them from gaining unlimited access to your systems.”
