Since COVID, a shift in the type of intrusions has become obvious: despite a 39% drop in general malware; crypto and IoT jacking rose — and ransomware proportionally, by 40% (Source: SecMag).
Ransomware hackers repurpose malware for multistage exploits, often over months, to search environments for “crown jewels.” A flood of IoT devices with little security in mind (from smartphones to door chimes) and remote workers, enable this by spiking attack vectors in.
There’s a slim chance of ransomers being caught. For one, they usually use bitcoin, which is next-to-impossible to track. Hackers will continue to use this lucrative, risk-free type of cybercrime in order to achieve global recognition and economic power. Organizations must make themselves hard targets at every level.
Headlines are just one risk companies face from ransomware that has grown in aggressiveness since about 2019:
At the Turn of a Key
We raise large companies into the minority who can remedy issues within a day. Thanks to properly gathered intelligence. While others manually configure their security policies, you’ll help you to operate confidently. Each process, participating in a proper, harmonic way.
With Zero Trust Protections
Use our SCA scanner to label data with a CRITICAL, HIGH, MEDIUM or LOW classification. We’ll methodically disrupt backdoor intrusion attempts by initial access brokers (IABs) in real time. See your gaps hierarchically auto- shrink, with extra protections for access points using internal verifications.
Using Airtight Checklists
Get the insights to drive data based decisions with one easy to digest report. Organizational gaps are priority flagged. Use Airtight Checklists, to demonstrate organizational compliance across regulatory bodies: PCI DSS, FINRA, NYDFS, FERPA, HIPAA, GDPR, and CCPA.
In Real Time
Many attacks are outside-in: the insurance sector is vulnerable as it relies on third-party endpoints for software, billing, tech support, OSS and reports. CloudDefense SAST constantly checks for security rule violations between source and target branches.
We’re committed to helping you manage risk and sustain compliance. CloudDefense’s provisions include best practices, technical support and expert guidance.
From the beginning, our scalable solution was made to meet big data needs and is battle-tested by years of massive and tracked data. Get a personalized guided tour with a CD expert, hear case studies similar to yours.
CloudDefense.AI, has discovered that a California-based breast pump manufacturer is storing at least 7 million documents, including personal information of healthcare providers, on an exposed server with no password protection. The documents include full names, business addresses, fax numbers, phone numbers, and National Provider Identifier (NPI) numbers. Although much of the information can be found publicly, it is unlikely that those listed are aware that their information is centrally available in a database of that size. The Daily Dot has reached out to the company but has received no response. The exposure of the data raises concerns over data safety in women's healthcare.
Indian at-home salon platform Yes Madam has exposed sensitive data of hundreds of thousands of customers and gig workers due to a server-side misconfiguration, according to security researcher Anurag Sen of CloudDefense.ai. The exposed data includes full names, mobile numbers, mailing addresses, email addresses, location data, payment links, and device details of over 900,000 users. Yes Madam co-founder Mayank Arya confirmed that the company has since secured the database, but it remains unclear whether the exposed data was accessed by anyone else. Yes Madam operates in over 30 cities across India and has attracted over a million downloads on its mobile apps.
