Palo Alto Networks clinch 500 customers in India in past 2 years

Bangalore: US based Palo Alto Networks, a network and enterprise security provider is growing faster with an expanding base of customers in the Indian market, according to company’s top executive.
“We have around 500 customers in India in past 2 years, which are across all verticals and market segments,” said Anil Bhasin, Palo Alto Networks’ Managing Director – India & SAARC, during a recent media briefing here.
“Most of these customers are replacing products and solutions of legacy security vendors and migrating to our offerings,” added Bhasin, who was appointed as top executive of company’s India operations in 2013.

The steady rise in customer base does suggest how Palo Alto Network’s business in India is flourishing, although it doesn’t provide specifics of its business in India.
However, citing IDC study, Bhasin said that company’s growth has been faster than the top four security vendors in India. According to IDC, the global security vendor revenues in first quarter 2016 rose to 5.5% year over year to $2.47 billion, while shipments grew 9.0% year over year to a total of 580,007 units.

As per IDC worldwide quarterly security appliance tracker Q1 2016 data released last month, Palo Palo Alto Networks revenue crossed $300 million and was third on the list of top five vendors, just after Cisco ($429 million) and Check Point ($342 million). In terms of market share, Palo Alto Networks was up from 9.3 percent in Q1,2015 to 12.4 percent in Q1, 2016 and it grew over 40 percent during that period as per IDC data.Company is moving fast enough to close in the gap between its two close competitors Cisco and Check with market share of 17.4 percent and 13.8 percent respectively.

“Since entering the top 5 in the Q2, 2013, Palo Alto Networks has consistently grown its revenues faster than the overall market. In 1Q15, Palo Alto Networks grew its revenue 54.3% year over year with a net gain of 2.9 share points when compared to the same quarter a year ago,” IDC said in a note.
“We are trying to shift the market and are not seen as OEMs but security partner of customers. Our aim is to provide solutions with embedded security,” noted Bhasin.
One of the main reasons why customers are migrating to Palo Alto Networks, according to Bhasin has been the open approach with tech alliance partners that complements helps to address business issues of customers .
In terms of technology alliance to provide integrated security solutions to customers, Palo Alto Networks has a long list of partners including VMware, Citrix, Aruba, Arista, RSA, Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and more.

It provides both on-premise and cloud based security, which addresses the hybrid model needs largely followed by most organizations and enterprises in recent times.
Although, Palo Alto Networks was a late entrant in the Indian market, which is largely dominated by established security vendors like Cisco, Juniper, Check Point, Fortinet and others, but it has significantly successful in penetrating this market.
Company had initiated its operations in 2013 with less than five staff but since than it has expanded its base considerably. Today, it has over 30 employees which include experienced sales and support team, five offices across the SAARC region, RMA (Return Material Authorization) depots and TAC (Technical Assistant Centre) in Chennai.
Besides, Palo Alto Networks’ growth is also driven by its 100 plus partners and over 200 certified engineers to serve the customers across the Indian market. Compared to competitors, company largely focuses on prevention strategy using automation and integration approach to strengthen security offering. “Customers want prevention of threats but in an automated way. Our 95% APIs are open, which allows them to get embedded into customer environments,” informed Bhasin.
It claimed to be the only security vendor with a Layer 7 architecture, which enables the company to block threats right at the platform layers and defunct them. Also it leverages the self-learning mechanism to address unknown threats.
Overall, the NYSE listed firm provides security cover to customers — right from networks to end-points.
“We make security as a strategic imperative through integration of technology, people and processes,” concluded Bhasin.

Pro-Pakistan group hacks websites of Indian universities, including DU, IITs

New Delhi: A Pro-Pakistan group hacked the official websites of four prominent Indian institutes—Indian Institute of Technology Delhi (IIT Delhi), IIT Varanasi, Aligarh Muslim University (AMU) and Delhi University (DU)— and some lesser known institutions several times on Tuesday.While all four educational institutes restored their websites initially, the hackers brought then down again and posted the pro-Pakistan, anti-India messages on these websites,As of 9.15pm, IIT Varanasi and IIT Delhi websites were showing the hackers’ message. AMU and DU websites had been restored.

The hacker group code named “Pakistan Haxors Crew ” wrote abuses about Indian government and the Indian Armed forces on the landing pages of the websites. The hacker group said: “Nothing deleted or stolen. Just here to deliver my message to Indians.”The Pakistan Haxors Crew also said the hack was in response to an Indian hacker hacking that country’s railways website

Other websites which were hacked Tuesday are University of Kota; Army Institute of Management and Technology, Greater Noida; Defence Institute of Advanced Technology; Army Institute of Management, Kolkata; National Aerospace Laboratories and Board of Research in Nuclear Sciences (BRNS).

“Greetings Government of India, and the people of India. 🙂 Do you know what your so-called heroes (soldiers) are doing in Kashmir? Do you know they are killing many innocent people in Kashmir?” read the message displayed on the websites.Officials at Delhi University said they were looking into the issue and the website will be restored soon.

IIT Delhi professor Sanjeev Sanghi said it has not lost any data due to the hacking. Sanghi said the “ERNET DNS (domain name service) server for the IIT Delhi website was targeted because of which IIT Delhi’s website was showing those pro-Pakistan messages. Sanghi said IIT Delhi has already in touch with the government over the development.“The website was inaccessible from outside the campus for some time due to some problems in the domain name. Servers were pointing incorrectly to another site,” said DU registrar Tarun Das. “The problem was detected and immediately rectified by contacting ERNET, which has provided the domain name for University of Delhi,” he added.The AMU spokesperson said that the matter has been brought to their notice and their IT department is looking into the issue. IIT-BHU could not be reached immediately.

Security must be integral, not an afterthought.

40% of all cyber-attacks target businesses with fewer than 500 employees!

More than 40% of SMBs don’t have an adequate IT security budget!

SMBs on average lose $188,242 to a cyber attack and almost 66% of victimized companies are forced out of business within six months of being attacked.

Only 26% of small and midsize businesses were confident their firm has enough in-house expertise for a strong security posture

Despite the threat that data loss poses to SMBs, 70% thought their companies would have difficulty detecting a breach

Did you know the average breach goes undetected for 229 days?

Regardless of the size of your business, you want to be assured of the security of your computers and networks. IT Monteur Firewall Firm team can ensure your business has around the clock firewall and virus protection, guaranteeing your network is free from intrusion, spyware and hackers 24/7.

Many small business owners feel safe from attack, mistakenly thinking hackers only target large corporations. The fact is that many cyber criminals see smaller businesses as ideal targets due to their minimal security measures, and often use those smaller businesses to gain access to the networks of larger companies.

Security at all levels of I.T. is vital to ensure you aren’t seen as an easy target. It isn’t something you want to address once your systems have been compromised. IT Monteur Firewall Firm can assist, with integrated firewalls, network and desktop security solutions, virus protection, spam filtering, adware, spyware protection and much more.

Business Security Facts:

    • Yes, you will be attacked, even though you’re small
    • In fact, small businesses are attacked more than enterprises due to their lower security budgets and expertise, both of which equate to greater vulnerability.
    • Cyber criminals gain access to larger corporations through small business networks.
    • Security must be integral, not an afterthought.
    • UTM (Unified Threat Management) is no longer enough.
    • Wired & Wireless need common security policy.

Fortinet upgrades for better cloud, SD-WAN protection

fortinet security fabric

Fortinet has rolled out a new version of its FortiOS operating system that gives customers the ability to manage security capabilities across their cloud assets and software-defined wide area networking (SD-WAN) environments.

With FortiOS 5.6, the company’s Fortinet Security Fabric gives a view of customers’ public and private clouds – including Amazon Web Services and Azure – as well as assets on and their software-defined WANs, says John Maddison, Fortinet’s senior vice president of products.The company is also announcing FortiCASB, a platform for securing applications purchased as part of SaaS offerings. FortiCASB is available at the end of the current quarter. It can be managed as part of the Fortinet Security Fabric.That is an ecosystem of Fortine’st gear as well as that of 22 partners whose devices can become part of the fabric via APIs. Depending on the individual APIs, the level of integration can vary.With the new management capabilities, customers can apply a single security policy, for example to block a particular botnet, and have it applied to all the security elements in their network that are part of the security fabric, he says…..The SD WAN capabilities support branch office protection by performing SSL inspection, VPN tunneling and traffic shaping.The upgraded version of FortiOS is available now as part of FortiGate purchases.

Check Point Discloses Vulnerability that Allowed Hackers to Take over Hundreds of Millions of WhatsApp & Telegram Accounts

One of the most concerning revelations arising from the recent WikiLeaks publication is the possibility that government organizations can compromise WhatsApp, Telegram and other end-to-end encrypted chat applications. While this has yet to be proven, many end-users are concerned as WhatsApp and Telegram use end-to-end encryption to guarantee user privacy. This encryption is designed to ensure that only the people communicating can read the messages and nobody else in between.

Nevertheless, this same mechanism has also been the origin of a new severe vulnerability we have discovered in both messaging services’ online platform – WhatsApp Web and Telegram Web. The online version of these platforms mirror all messages sent and received by the user, and are fully synced with the users’ device.

This vulnerability, if exploited, would have allowed attackers to completely take over users’ accounts on any browser, and access victims’ personal and group conversations, photos, videos and other shared files, contact lists, and more. This means that attackers could potentially download your photos and or post them online, send messages on your behalf, demand ransom, and even take over your friends’ accounts.

View the demos on WhatsApp and Telegram

The exploitation of this vulnerability starts with the attacker sending an innocent looking file to the victim, which contains malicious code.

The file can be modified to contain attractive content to raise the chances a user will open it. In WhatsApp, once the user clicks to open the image, the malicious file allows the attacker to access the local storage, where user data is stored. In Telegram, the user should click again to open a new tab, in order for the attacker to access local storage. From that point, the attacker can gain full access to the user’s account and account data. The attacker can then send the malicious file to the all victim’s contacts, opening a dangerous door to a potentially widespread attack over the WhatsApp and Telegram networks.

Since messages were encrypted without being validated first, WhatsApp and Telegram were blind to the content, thus making them unable to prevent malicious content from being sent.

Check Point disclosed this information to WhatsApp’s and Telegram’s security teams on March 7th. Both companies have verified and acknowledged the security issue and developed a fix for web clients worldwide soon after. “Thankfully, WhatsApp and Telegram responded quickly and responsibly to deploy the mitigation against exploitation of this issue in all web clients,” said Oded Vanunu. WhatsApp and Telegram web users wishing to ensure that they are using the latest version are advised to restart their browser.

IBM: Cybersecurity concerns for industrial control systems and critical infrastructure

Tim Compston, Guest Features Writer at Security News Desk, sits down with Cliff Wilson, an Associate Partner in the IBM Security Business Unit (UK and Ireland), for an insight into the major cybersecurity concerns and vulnerabilities around legacy industrial control systems and more broadly critical infrastructure.

When we start the interview Cliff Wilson (pictured left) – who is responsible for IBM security business in the Industrial, Energy and Utilities sectors across the UK and Ireland – voices his concern over the fact that many industrial control systems (ICS) still running today were designed, manufactured, and implemented, well before the internet came along. These devices were expected to operate in a more or less closed environment, albeit with degrees of simple wide area network connectivity. Nowadays, these ICS infrastructures are increasingly connected to back end process control and analytical systems. Many are even connected to the internet for ease and reduced cost of access. This new connectivity leaves them vulnerable to cyberattack from individuals and states: “In addition to being old, these systems can be highly fragile. Thus, penetration testing or other security analytical testing has to be carried out in a highly sensitive way – it is not hard to crash a legacy programmable logic controller (PLC).”

In terms of the footprint of industrial control systems, Wilson confirms that they play a critical role in the day-to-day operations of a diverse array of sites: “There is manufacturing, civil nuclear, power generation, power distribution, utilities, waste water and the whole slew of general manufacturing,” he says.

Surge in serious attacks
Turning to the direction of travel that Wilson, and his colleagues at IBM, are seeing with regards to the level, and origin, of cyberattacks on industrial control systems, he says that it is very much a mixed picture. On the one hand Wilson reveals that the kind of annoyance attacks – what he refers to as the ‘spotty youth’ in his back bedroom just having a go at a website and trying to break into a system – have reduced, significantly, in number: “This is one of the reasons why the overall graph [of attacks] looks like it has tailed off a bit.” On the other side of the coin, however, Wilson points to a worrying escalation in attacks at the more serious end of the spectrum: “These are things like the attacks on the power systems in the Ukraine which have been well reported in the international press.”

Expanding on the ramifications of the Ukraine cyberattacks, Wilson says that someone – believed to be an external third party – essentially reached in and switched off the power: “They disrupted the power network to a great extent across that country and did it in a way that the power operators couldn’t get the service switched back on again. You can imagine if you lived in a country where all of sudden the water disappeared, the electricity disappeared, the amount of fear and panic that would induce.

Hidden dangers
Wilson continues on this theme by telling me that there is also a great worry out there that malicious software may exist on customer systems, especially those related to critical infrastructure. This means that potential attackers – individuals or state actors – could potentially cause disruption to critical systems and processes – without anyone really understanding what has happened behind-the-scenes: “This kind of suspicion comes from a number of cases where some critical Infrastructure organisations have looked at their systems in detail and found software that shouldn’t be there and, indeed, it has subsequently been proved that that software was there, in some instances, for a significant period of time,” says Wilson.

Forensic analysis
Pressed on whether it is easy to establish what a piece of malicious software is up to, Wilson admits that in practice things are not as straightforward as they might first appear: “Unless you do a fairly in-depth piece of security analysis, typically, you don’t know what that software is doing. I know of one organisation in another country, for instance, that when they found suspicious software they were advised by their local government agency not to take that software out, or to do anything with it, but to monitor it to get an idea of what the intention was. Was it exfiltrating data? Was it communicating with some external command and control system? Was it just gathering information about the network? Sometimes just plucking the suspicious software out, in terms of erasing it from whatever server, is not the smartest thing to do.”

Building connectivity
Asked to comment on whether one of the issues here is that the utilities, and other users, are keen to have their systems more broadly connected, from a business perspective, Wilson agrees that this is, indeed, an ‘observable phenomenon’: “A lot of old industrial control stuff is, increasingly, being connected to the internet because there is a need to be able to patch application software, to pull out log data, to update operating system software versions – whatever it might be – and also to be able to extract operational process data to send to corporate management systems. Instead of having to drive a van half way across the country, for example, to look at a piece of industrial control equipment, it is much easier to connect that device to the internet and be able to query it remotely.” The danger of course, says Wilson, is when people do connect that piece of old equipment to the internet it is often done in a quick and simple manner without taking appropriate security into account.

Search tools
According to Wilson the situation for industrial control systems is becoming even more fraught thanks to the widespread availability of online tools that attackers can take advantage of: “There is something out there called Shodan – a piece of software that can search for devices, including industrial control systems, and when it finds them try to log onto them using a number of different techniques. It logs off again but stores that information in a database on the internet which anyone can search through.” Wilson goes on to explain the ramifications of this information being publicly available. Basically, he says that if someone is determined to break into a utility company’s systems, for example, they can quickly find out whether any of the utility’s industrial control equipment is connected to the Internet: “They simply search through Shodan until they find a vulnerable device.”

Vulnerabilities
Added to the concern over search tools, Wilson reveals that there is also the double-edged sword created by the fact that governments – and industrial control equipment manufacturers – will list on the internet known vulnerabilities associated with specific equipment: “Ostensibly it is being put up on a publicly accessible website so a technical person could research the issues associated with the equipment under their control and take appropriate remedial action – say update patching, or even think about replacing certain devices. The downside here is, of course, that the bad guys will look up these same repositories of information and, from their perspective, think that there is a company, a target, with lots of industrial control equipment, here is a list of all the vulnerabilities of those, I just might have a go at attacking them,” explains Wilson.

Time for action
Moving on to potential solutions here, and how IBM works with its customers to tackle this ongoing cybersecurity dilemma, Wilson reports that it can be tackled from a variety of standpoints: “We do penetration testing and systems assurance testing, specifically in the industrial control area. The idea there is to see just how hard it actually is to break into the industrial controls systems of, say, a critical national infrastructure company. Worryingly, it’s usually not that hard to get in. We also look for stuff that shouldn’t be there and to see where data is perhaps leaving the environment, where it shouldn’t be. We also look for differences between the “as-designed” and the “as-built” environment. We often get involved in advising our customers how to close those gaps, or to close those back doors in their industrial control systems, and how to put better security in place.”

High Availability Firewall

High Availability Firewall Fail-over cluster Firewall

High availability (HA) is a configuration in which two firewalls are placed in a group and their configuration is synchronized to prevent a single point to failure on your network. A heartbeat connection between the firewall peers ensures seamless fail-over in the event that a peer goes down. Setting up the firewalls in HP pairs provides redundancy and allows you to ensure business continuity.
