A glimpse through Digital Logistix journey searching for a Digital Risk Protection Solution

With more than 20 years of experience as a leading distributor of cybersecurity products and services for Latin America and the Caribbean, Digital Logistix takes it very seriously when it comes to choosing which industry vendors we partner with. We evaluate all market players, what they have to offer, their current and historical reputation as a solution provider, their expertise, scale and reach.

We understand no single partner can offer all the security capabilities an organization needs, as fast as they need them. So as a trusted security advisor, we strive to partner with the best-in-class security vendors to help our customers protect their most valuable assets.

Our recent journey searching within the emerging market of digital risk protection for a vendor who would be the best fit for our customers in the region, was truly exciting. We couldn’t have ended with a better vendor to partner with: Digital Shadows, a top leader in the market due to its robust digital risk data and ability to deliver on an aggressive product road map.

During our extensive research, we weighed risk analytics and automated remediation as the most important key differentiating features needed for a solution to effectively detect and resolve. We were looking for a solution able to provide the broadest breadth of coverage and the deepest level of analysis of threats in the open, deep and dark web.

Digital Shadow’s great traction and reputation, within the market was evident and clearly indicated they should be our solution of choice. Just the very fact that Digital Shadows was named a “Leader” in the July Forrester New Wave™: Digital Risk Protection report and awarded the highest rating possible was a ‘clincher’ for us. We were also very impressed by its analyst team’s existing Spanish language expertise, a key qualification needed to operate in such market.

We’re very excited to be the first partner in Latin America and the Caribbean to join the Digital Shadows Channel REV program. This partnership now allows us to offer the tools our business partners need to quickly build their own professional services around SearchLight®, the industry leading digital risk protections solution from Digital Shadows that was recently awarded a maximum 5-star rating by US publication CRN.

DigitalEra partners with Duo Security to offer customers Two-factor Authentication

     

I’m pleased to announced our partnership with DUO Security, a cloud-based access security provider that protects the fastest-growing companies and thousands of organizations worldwide. DigitalEra is proud to offer it’s customers two-factor authentication which ensures only legitimate users and appropriate devices can access their company’s sensitive data and applications – anytime, anywhere.

Duo two-factor authentication brings strong, scalable security to any organization. Duo’s cloud-based and easy-to-use technology protects users, data and applications from breaches, credential theft and account takeover.

Two-factor authentication, is the simplest, most effective way to make sure users really are who they say they are. It protects applications and data against unauthorized access due to credential theft by verifying users’ identities before they access your data. Protecting a company’s application logins using either hard or soft tokens such as a smartphone app or a physical token, prevents attackers from remotely accessing both on-premises and cloud applications.

Both DigitalEra and Duo are excited about this new partnership and the addition of two-factor authentication as part of our expanded portfolio of security services. By adding Duo to our security services portfolio, DigitalEra offers customers a one stop shop for securing business. We will continue to partner with experienced technology companies to provide optimal solutions for our customers.

We’re thrilled to be able to offer a modern two-factor authentication solution to deliver added levels of security for our customers. For questions or information on DUO Security solutions with DigitalEra, contact our sales team today.

Meltdown and Spectre: If you aren’t monitoring your firmware, now would be good time to start.

So, by now you have heard that a flaw present in most modern Computer Processing Units (CPU) produced in the last decade will require operating system (OS) kernels and system firmware to be overhauled. This flaw is easily exploitable to obtain information from databases, applications and processes running on the system due to the way the CPUs pre-process instructions and access system memory.

The immediate fix is to update the different OS kernels and applicable firmware. However, some security experts are

suggesting that the only real fix is to replace all CPU’s as the only mitigation. In any case, this presents a serious operational challenge to all organizations, including cloud service providers. For example, Azure, AWS and Google have notified customers of major ongoing security updates in the upcoming weeks related to this issue.

And not all devices can be updated. All Apple devices are vulnerable at this time but the kernel fixes will only apply to the latest IOS, macOS and tvOS operating systems. Devices that cannot run the latest OS versions will remain vulnerable.

It is also important to note that there are some needed changes in antivirus tools to properly inspect virtual memory and access. In addition, organizations must now continuously monitor their environments to ensure they are running the latest OS kernel and firmware combinations.

So now what?

First of all, reports indicate that no known exploits have been found at this time. But that just means that none have been detected or seen by security companies or organizations.   In fact, the disclosures include proof-of-concept code that is probably being tested by bad actors as you read this.

Second, OS kernel changes will be a software level change, meaning that the underlying hardware will likely remain vulnerable unless firmware patches are released by the hardware manufacturers and OEMs. In fact, security analysts fear that many cheap IoT devices will never be updated.

This will remain a critical issue for months or years to come because of the sheer amount of hardware that needs to be properly inventoried, updated, monitored and potentially replaced to really enact a proper remediation. Visibility will be key in knowing not only what clean-up has been done, but also what remediation is still needed.

DigitalEra partner Trapezoid offers tools to help. Here’s how:

1)    Trapezoid’s Firmware Integrity Verification Engine (FIVE) is designed to continuously monitor the firmware regardless of manufacturer or OEM.

2)   Trapezoid FIVE can maintain an inventory of hardware platforms and firmware revisions over time to detect whether your systems are threatened by this critical vulnerability, and others like it.

3)   Trapezoid can leverage multiple integrity measurement technologies from different OEM’s to identify changes that could be indicators of compromise, and remotely attest to the integrity of your systems.
