New Syxsense Zero Trust Delivers Industry’s Only End-To-End Solution for Zero Trust Solution.

By News, Press ReleaseNo Comments

Business Email Compromise (BEC) breaches are turning into the go-to strategy for cybercriminals. What actions should you take?

Black Hat USA, Las Vegas – August 10, 2022 – Syxsense, a global leader in Unified Security and Endpoint Management solutions, today announced Syxsense Zero Trust, a new module within Syxsense Enterprise that enables endpoint compliance with Zero Trust Network Access policies (ZTNA).  Zero Trust initiatives require a hyper-focus on endpoint protection, but traditional authentication solutions lack the ability to evaluate device health, ensure granular policy compliance, and automate risk remediation. Syxsense’s new Zero Trust module was designed to serve as an organization’s “Trust Evaluation Engine” for endpoints. Not only does it offer unparalleled visibility and control over network access policies, but also enables security teams to build sophisticated access policies and remediation workflows to ensure ZTNA compliance.

 

“As organizations work to build a Zero Trust strategy, many are facing implementation challenges. One of those challenges is the ability to ensure that endpoints accessing the network are trustworthy and conform to policies. Most solutions simply accept or deny access without an understanding of the current Device Security Posture,” said Ashley Leonard, CEO of Syxsense. “In talking with customers, they wanted the ability to evaluate endpoint access for ZTNA based on policies and if not compliant, be able to apply fixes or remediate in real time to enable proper access. Syxsense Zero Trust does just that by allowing organizations to have full control of endpoints and automating the end-to-end process.”

 

The true power of Syxsense Zero Trust lies in three key areas. First, the granularity of hundreds of parameters IT can use to report and act on device compliance. For example, is a laptop accessing your NetSuite server after hours and with an IP address from an unfamiliar location? If so, block it. Second, the power to enforce compliance with Zero Trust policies prior to granting access on an asset-by-asset basis. And third, the automated remediation of non-compliant endpoints, which could include patching the system, enabling an antivirus tool and making sure it is up to date on patterns, emailing IT about unauthorized access, and much more. When combined with the simplicity of building policy playbooks quickly and simply using the powerful workflow orchestration and automation tool of Syxsense Cortex™, these tools give organizations a uniquely powerful endpoint evaluation and network access solution for Zero Trust.

The specific features of Syxsense Zero Trust include:

  • Complete visibility into all endpoints’ configuration and state of compliance using a single agent.
  • Build sophisticated access policies based on a large array of configuration and security parameters, setting unique policies for each individual corporate asset.
  • Automate the immediate enforcement of access policy requirements and remediation of non-compliant endpoints using the Syxsense Cortex remediation engine.
  • Verify trusted user authentication requests via the Syxsense console or optionally, connect with external multi-factor authentication (MFA) tools to provide a “go, no-go” security status of devices. For example, if a customer uses Duo, Okta, or other MFA tools, simply connect those tools with the Syxsense API and it will report compliance on each endpoint looking to access corporate assets.

 

Syxsense Zero Trust will be available for purchase in late September 2022, but attendees at Black Hat on August 10th and 11th can experience a product overview at the Syxsense booth #1272. For more information about Syxsense at Black Hat click here.

Four Big Trends In Mobile Device Management

By BlogNo Comments

Four Big Trends In Mobile Device Management

Business Email Compromise (BEC) breaches are turning into the go-to strategy for cybercriminals. What actions should you take?

Mobility has progressed, in recent years, to the point where some enterprise users hardly ever need to use a laptop or desktop. Many CEOs, for example, only use their phone. Any desktop duties are typically referred to an executive assistant or secretary. Sales jobs, too, can often be accomplished to a greater degree via smartphone.

Certainly, there are many other jobs where this isn’t the case. But regardless of the title, mobile devices are taking up more and more of the enterprise workload. Mobile Device Management (MDM) technology has advanced to provide the processes and tools the mobile workforce needs to stay productive and secure. Further, MDM provides IT with the ability to more easily provision mobile devices, manage them, inventory them, and protect assets and data.

Here are four of the top trends in MDM:

BYOD

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) was an inevitable consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic. With everyone ordering home almost overnight, IT had no alternative other than to allow employees to use the laptops, desktops, tablets, and smartphones they had at home or used for personal tasks. A few of the lucky organizations (or the ones with deeper pockets) had already provided all employees with a dedicated work laptop, tablet and/or smartphone. By doing that, IT could arrange role-based access to enterprise data and email, and provide services such as a secure VPN, GPS tracking, password-protected applications, and access to a host of enterprise security applications. Beyond that, mobile chaos became the norm. BYOD continues to predominate in many organizations.

This has made MDM a more important field than ever. IT policies may have been relaxed with regard to BYOD. But in tandem, IT has had to up its game in managing mobile devices. MDM has stepped into the breach. Organizations use MDM to remotely enroll personal devices into the enterprise systems. This allows them to monitor behavior, enforce security policies, and facilitate productivity, and detect threats and breaches.

MDM Innovation

The flood of money into MDM tools has encouraged the vendor community to innovate.
MDM solutions are becoming more sophisticated. Machine learning and AI are being incorporated to enable data and systems to be subjected to analysis. MDM systems are appearing that are able to assign or enroll devices with pre-programmed data profiles, VPN access, software, access privileges, and much more. IT now has the ability to track its dispersed workforce more easily, as well as monitor, troubleshoot, and decommission devices when the need arises. Some tools can even wipe device data in the event of theft, loss, or breach.

Virtual Reality

The marriage of MDM and various forms of virtual reality (VR) is opening new doors for field service, maintenance, and technically challenging occupations. For example, augmented reality (AR) tools are emerging that use special glasses, goggles, and headsets that allow field technicians and support personnel to compare physical equipment to digital specifications, job requests, and other information.
As the technician or field rep looks at the object, component, or system, a digital representation appears within their field of vision to verify it is the right valve to inspect, the correct place to weld, or the exact piece of equipment that needs to be removed. The best systems even allow a less experienced person to show a senior engineer (sitting far away) to see the job site so they can walk the other person through the task or answer questions.

MDM Meets Security

MDM has always had some interest in security. It was unavoidable. To manage mobile devices effectively means providing certain safeguards – if only alerting others in the enterprise to a potential situation. MDM is now heading one step further. It is merging more tightly with security applications. Syxsense, for example, provides MDM within a suite that includes integrated patch management, vulnerability scanning, security threat remediation, and IT management. This greatly enhances security while keeping mobile devices safe from malware and other cyber threats. IT can use the Syxsense Enterprise platform to spot anomalous behavior, detect strange activity at ports, at exfiltration attempts, and more.

Mobility Linked to Surge in Cybercrime

Mobility Linked to Surge in Cybercrime

An endpoint ecosystem study by Mobile Mentor found a direct correlation between the rise in mobility and a recent surge in cybercrime. How can IT teams better manage the trade-off between endpoint security and the employee experience?

An endpoint ecosystem study by Mobile Mentor found a direct correlation between the rise in mobility and a recent surge in cybercrime. With the pandemic forcing people to work remotely and to rely on devices beyond the traditional desktop, the study found that cybercrime has jumped overall by 500% since the start of the COVID-19 era. Smartphones, laptops, and tablets became the tools of choice of the work-from-home (WFH) brigade. And this led to a much greater security risk, particularly in highly regulated industries.

The report highlighted a big area of difficulty for IT: the trade-off between endpoint security and the employee experience (EX). At one extreme, things can be made so secure that almost no one can access systems or communicate to anyone else. At the other end of the scale, everything is so easy to access that criminals waltz in unannounced and undetected, steal valuable data, take over user identities, gain administrative privileges, and drain corporate bank accounts.

Researchers make the point that the explosion in mobility and WFH overstretched the capabilities of many IT departments. Security, in particular, fell badly behind in an increasingly distributed and autonomous workforce world. Not only are companies getting hacked in far greater numbers, but employee frustration has risen sharply. They are resigning in greater numbers than we have seen for decades. A talent crunch is emerging right at a time when more staff are badly needed across all functions. IT and security teams are threadbare in many cases. And good IT team members can’t be counted upon to stay loyal as headhunters are always looking to lure them elsewhere with higher pay.

Study Findings
The study discovered that relatively few employees are aware of security risks and corporate policies addressing these risks. 27% of employees only view security policies once per year or less. Similarly, 39% receive security awareness training less than once per year. Out of sight, out of mind appears to be the case. Instead of constant reminders, they get a quick dose of security training or policy awareness which is soon forgotten.

In any case, 41% believe security policies restrict the way they work. They just don’t accept that they shouldn’t use a USB drive or that they should be deprived of convenient online services. For example, 53% consider that they are more efficient using Dropbox and Gmail than their approved corporate tools.

Passwords came up as another major bone of contention. 31% of people use a password management tool. The other 69% select passwords that are easy to remember. There is a link here to EX. Most users have countless passwords, pins, logins and security safeguards they are supposed to remember. For work, most have dozens of passwords when you factor in HR, production tools, financial systems, payroll, benefits, corporate intranet, VPN, and email. And then there are personal accounts which often have to be accessed during work hours such as preferred hotel sites, airlines, personal banking, personal email, and more.

The policy may require 10-character passwords and that Xd! must be included – and must be changed every month. But when so many passwords and characters are in play and password managers aren’t trusted due to being a single point of failure, sloppiness is inevitable.

Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) reared its head as another area of big risk. The study found the use of BYOD has surged over the past two years. These days, 64% of people use personal devices for work. Unfortunately, less than a third of organizations have instituted a program to enhance BYOD security. On top of that, shadow IT has become an even bigger issue. IT has lost control of the use of the approval process for apps. As they often don’t control the devices, they don’t know what’s been put on them. Even when they do have some control, the accessibility of cloud and SaaS resources can make it hard to know if some department head or staffer has subscribed to online services. Some may be very secure. But many aren’t.

Bottom line: 72% of employees values their personal privacy over company security. In such a climate, security must rise to the challenge. It must be comprehensive, but it must also not inhibit the user from performing their duties. By automating security and delivering it over the cloud, Syxsense Enterprise provides real-time vulnerability monitoring and instant remediation for every single endpoint in an environment. This represents the future of threat prevention. Breaches can now be detected and remediated within one endpoint solution, Syxsense.
