Risks of Expired SSL Certificates
SSL certificates have become an integral part of today’s internet. Allowing the encryption of traffic between host and client has opened up multiple opportunities for services to be accessed from anywhere, further expanding the scope of possibilities the internet has to offer.
Top 10 Cloud Migration Mistakes and How to Avoid Them
Organizations are rushing to move their applications and data to the cloud as cloud adoption rates keep soaring year after year. Whatever the industry or size of an organization, it’s apparent that everyone is moving to the cloud.
Residential Proxies: Types, Usage and Dangers in Cybersecurity
Privacy concerns over a flurry of egregious corporate breach scenarios continue to upend just about any other ‘hot’ technology-related topic out there—a direct reflection of the turbulent digital landscape we find ourselves in and a constant influx of hedonic platforms (e.g., social media) making indiscriminate use of personal data, albeit the dire consequences.
Top 10 Cloud Security Threats and How to Mitigate Them
One thing’s for sure: cloud adoption is going mainstream. It’s grown increasingly obvious that cloud computing has continuously transformed the way organizations of all sizes access, store and share data, thanks to its many benefits of rapid deployment, flexibility, low costs and scalability. But its interconnectedness and many other advantages aren’t the only things cloud computing has brought along with it—security challenges are emerging in today’s cloud era.
Man-in-the-Middle Attacks: When Three’s a Crowd
When you’re browsing the web, you would expect that your communications and the information exchanged are kept private, having not been tampered with in transit. Whether it’s merely login credentials, personally identifiable information or even bank account details, we exchange a lot of information on the Internet every day—and while we expect the utmost security, that certainly isn’t the rule.
Why Not to Set Domains to Private IPs
“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure.” ― Benjamin Franklin The concept of risk is ubiquitous across the cybersecurity landscape. In this day and age, it is difficult to envision any security-conscious organization not having alluded, hopefully more than once, to the serious consequences attached to avoiding the subject, particularly when it comes to protecting its most sensitive digital assets and personal data.
Attack Surface Monitoring: Definition, Benefits and Best Practices
The firewall, IDSs, EDR platforms and proxies are your first line of defence. They’re the locks to your entire network, and your scanners are the security cameras that allow you to see what goes on inside. And while these security controls traditionally help to achieve a decent security posture, the threat landscape is rapidly and constantly changing—along with your attack surface.
Top 10 Problems with Your Attack Surface
With the increasing attack surface of web applications, it’s become even more important to identify and understand the most common attack surfaces and how easily problems in your own web application can develop.
Top 5 Tips for Securing Your Dev & Test Environments, and Why You Should
In his seminal work, The Mythical Man-Month, Frederick Brooks Jr. tells us that software development is homologous to a tar pit where many efforts flounder regardless of the appealing nature of the task or the relative tractability of the underlying physical medium. In what he calls one of the “woes of the craft”, the author goes on to explain that the pervasive optimism among programmers regarding the conception of a software project is rarely maintained after we take into account the set of complex interdependencies commensurate with others’ skills and objectives.
Introducing ASRv2: The Next Level in Attack Surface Reduction
After months of hard work, we’re excited to announce the immediate availability of our Attack Surface Reduction tool’s latest version: ASRv2!
