GetApp Annual Data Security Report Reveals Information Security a Top Concern for Businesses

GetApp | September 29, 2021

GetApp, a recommendation engine that helps SMBs make informed software purchasing decisions, released findings from its 2021 Data Security Report. The results reveal that, regardless of industry, information security incidents have become more of a targeted threat for businesses, increasing in amount and efficacy. Of all the security incidents identified by over 900 surveyed employees at U.S. businesses, the three most threatening incidents were: increasingly severe ransomware attacks, more effective phishing schemes, and rampant reusing of passwords. Respondents reported phishing emails have nearly tripled in effectiveness over the past two years. Phishing emails are rapidly becoming more difficult to spot and thus far more destructive. Over the past year, ransomware attacks have increased by 25%. Ransom demands were significantly higher than average for businesses in specific industries, such as banking and financial services and construction, with higher payouts. The report found that password reuse is strongly associated with higher incidences of security breaches. Reported account takeovers were three times as common among people who reuse passwords as those who don’t. Data security threats are becoming more targeted to individual victims, whether that’s a phishing scheme aimed at a specific person or ransomware attacks on a particular company.Companies must redouble security training efforts and fortify their networks to protect against today’s increasingly sophisticated cybercriminals. Zach Capers, senior analyst at GetApp. Alarmingly, 23% of the IT security managers surveyed say their company doesn’t have protocols in place to report a suspected cyberattack and 33% don’t have a formal cybersecurity incident response plan. Read the in-depth report for further insight regarding sensitive data, cyberattacks, and how your industry is keeping up with data security needs. About GetApp GetApp is the recommendation engine SMBs need to make the right software choice. GetApp enables SMBs to achieve their mission by delivering the tailored, data-driven recommendations and insights needed to make informed software purchasing decisions. GetApp is a Gartner company.

Balbix Extends Cyber Security Posture Automation to AWS

Balbix | November 02, 2021

Balbix, provider of the world's leading platform for cybersecurity posture automation, announced today the general availability of the Balbix Connector for AWS. As a result of the new offering, customers gain a comprehensive inventory of their assets spanning on-premises and cloud as well as the ability to discover, prioritize and mitigate unseen risks, including unpatched software vulnerabilities, weak credentials, missing or poor encryption, trust issues and cloud infrastructure misconfigurations. A surge in cloud adoption has made modern IT environments more complex and increased the enterprise attack surface. While gains have been made in cloud security, visibility remains siloed. Proactive cybersecurity tools are typically split into on-premises and cloud silos, making it extremely difficult to get a consolidated view into both environments. In addition, the ability to identify and address the most pressing risks requires the assistance of automation to successfully scale. Improved AWS Security Posture Management The new Connector for AWS provides support for the most popular AWS Cloud services including core services like Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), and AWS Identity and Access Management (IAM); database and container services like Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS), and Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS); and analytics services like Amazon OpenSearch Service. As a result, teams overseeing security of their AWS environments can: Get comprehensive visibility into cloud assets and accurately categorize them into compute, storage, network, and containers Discover exposure to common cloud attack vectors, especially misconfigurations – the most exploited attack vector for the cloud Measure risks in terms of the likelihood and monetary impact of them being exploited in order to prioritize risks for remediation and report on the overall security posture Visibility Across the Entire Network With the addition of the Connector for AWS, Balbix merges cloud and on-premises visibility in one view, eliminating the need for security practitioners to look through multiple dashboards and allowing them to work more productively. "With a significant portion of our IT infrastructure already running in AWS alongside a longer-term cloud-first strategy to migrate most workloads to the cloud, the addition of the Balbix Connector for AWS enables us to drive down risk comprehensively across our enterprise," said Nate Miller, Senior IT Manager, Global Cyber Security and IT Compliance at Cooper-Standard. "However, we know some critical IT infrastructure will remain on-premises. The unified visibility provided by Balbix is key to enable our cyber security teams to make the best decisions for the business and most efficiently minimize the risk of breach." Advanced Risk Analysis AWS data is analyzed using purpose-built AI algorithms to produce a comprehensive view of cyber-risk for organizational cloud assets, along with relevant context and recommended action items. Risk is measured in dollars, which provides a common language that organizations can use to prioritize projects, spending and track the effectiveness of their overall cybersecurity program. "Traditionally, cyber posture tools have been siloed, only offering views for cloud or on-premises, never both,We are excited to introduce the Balbix Connector for AWS to break down the siloed approach and offer AWS customers a holistic view of their overall corporate risk, along with new insights to manage security under the shared responsibility model." Gaurav Banga, CEO at Balbix About Balbix Balbix is the world's leading platform for cybersecurity posture automation. Using Balbix, organizations can discover, prioritize and mitigate unseen risks and vulnerabilities at high velocity. With seamless data collection and petabyte-scale analysis capabilities, Balbix is deployed and operational within hours, and helps to decrease breach risk immediately. Balbix counts many global 1000 companies among its rapidly growing customer base and was named a "Cool Vendor" by Gartner in 2018.
