How to Prevent Ransomware? Quick Tips in 2023

Ransomware attacks occur every day to businesses all around the world. Both SMEs and MNCs are affected, with ransoms reaching millions of US dollars depending on the scale of the attack. Particularly in the post-pandemic environment and with growing ransomware attack numbers, business leaders need to know how to prevent ransomware and protect their brands. Recovery policies like Incident Response (IR) may be crucial, but prevention is always the most ideal form of defense against ransomware. The best way to avoid ransomware attacks is to plug vulnerabilities in your cyber security system before attackers can exploit them. Read on for Sangfor’s ransomware prevention and protection guide. What is ransomware? A quick recap Ransomware is malicious software designed to encrypt important files, systems, and data. The hacker can then use this as leverage to demand a ransom in order to unlock it. Ransomware attacks can be particularly disastrous and spell the end for many businesses. The opportunity cost of business downtime can often be greater than the ransom itself. Yet, businesses are completely at the mercy of the attacker and whether they will return the encrypted information safely. What are the top causes of ransomware attacks? Ransomware attacks can occur several different ways. Here are three of the most common causes: Email phishing Negligent, uninformed, or inexperienced employees Weak passwords and poor access management To learn more about what is ransomware and how does it work, read our blog here. Ransomware prevention & protection tips Here are 10 quick tips on how to protect against your business ransomware: #1: Never pay the ransom While it is true that paying the ransom can sometimes be cheaper than the opportunity cost of business downtime, we would never advise this. Firstly, there is zero guarantee the attacker will follow through with their promise. Secondly, paying the ransom makes the attack successful in the eyes of the attacker. This will encourage future attacks. #2: Educate all your employees A significant proportion of ransomware attacks are caused by your organization's biggest security weakness: your employees. Perhaps the easiest and most effective way of protecting from ransomware attacks is to educate your employees. Cybersecurity awareness training for both junior and senior staff can make all the difference. Consider classes on creating secure passwords, VPNs, identifying suspicious communications and attachments, confidentiality training, phishing attacks, and more. #3: Backup data frequently Backups are at the core of ransomware protection strategies. Far too many businesses are held hostage by ransomware attackers simply because they have not made a recent enough backup. It should be a top priority to keep regular and frequent backups either on the cloud or an external data center. This will guarantee all sensitive business and client data is safe, and that you can resume operations quickly and painlessly. #4: Keep all software and systems up to date Cyber criminals are constantly working to find weaknesses in software and systems used by businesses. They can use these weak spots as an easy way into the target’s system where they are able to enact the attack. Likewise, however, security specialists work to plug up these vulnerabilities and prevent attacks. They release regular updates not only to improve their product or service, but to improve security. Keeping all your software and systems up to date is low-hanging fruit when it comes to securing your business. In general, this is considered good cybersecurity hygiene and should be common practice across all departments. #5: Utilize network segmentation Network segmentation is a technique used by IT specialists to prevent the spread of malware. If one segment of your network gets infected, it can easily be isolated to safeguard the others. Within each network segment, you can implement a range of cybersecurity solutions to bolster ransomware prevention. #6: Enhance Endpoint Security through EDR Tools Endpoint security is software designed to help protect each endpoint connected to your network. These endpoints can be laptops, servers, smartphones, printers, and much more. Nowadays, businesses have far more endpoints connected to their systems. Every one of these is a potential route for attackers to infect your network. For those with work from home arrangements, this is especially worrying. EDR software has everything from web browser security, antivirus & anti-malware technology, data encryption, and more. This will help keep ransomware among other threats at bay. Utilizing software like this allows you to enjoy all the benefits of these endpoints while protecting against ransomware. #7: Adopt an access control policy Despite your best efforts, there may be cases where an employee is in a position to facilitate a ransomware attack. This could be a negligent employee, one that has fallen for a phishing attack, or even one even acting out of malice. In such a case, an access control policy can be a great additional line of defense. In cybersecurity, it is considered best practice to only provide access to those who need it. Businesses are recommended to operate on the idea of “least privilege”, whereby employees are given the bare minimum access required for their role. #8: Integrate email security solutions Ransomware attacks are notorious for being spread through email. Email security solutions are a relatively simple yet effective way of preventing ransomware. Secure email gateways and solutions that help scan, analyze, and flag potentially malicious emails/attachments are extremely beneficial. #9: Run regular security tests Security tests are an integral part of any security-conscious organization. They are perhaps the most effective way of finding weaknesses in your security architecture. Once found, they can quickly be patched before an attacker is able to exploit them. Common security testing techniques like sandboxing, developing new security policies, and more can help protect against ransomware. #10: Anti-ransomware solutions Anti-ransomware solutions like that offered by Sangfor act as a complete package for organizations that want to prevent ransomware. As an innovative strategy that blocks ransomware in every step of the Kill Chain, Sangfor Anti Ransomware has 4 stages: Step 1 is to detect and block the ransomware infection. This is done through a next-gen firewall as well as endpoint security to protect both network and devices. Step 2 involves detecting and blocking all C&C communication. Here, Sangfor Next-Generation Firewall NGAF will block all communication to outbound C&C servers. Step 3 prevents further exploitation. In this step, Sangfor Endpoint Secure helps identify the controlling file and eliminate it. Step 4 blocks propagation. Ransomware can rapidly spread throughout different systems within your organization. By isolating the malware, NGAF and Endpoint Secure prevent further infection before relaying learned information to strengthen security.

How to Develop a Cybersecurity-First Culture for Your Company

The year has just begun and we’re all ready to tackle whatever challenges lay ahead – but where should the focus be in 2023 with regards to your cybersecurity? Most people will simply turn a blind eye to security notifications or your PC begging you to renew your antivirus software because the threat of a cyber-attack always seems like something so surreal and isolated – only happening to large futuristic corporations by hackers who just robbed a Matrix convention. Unfortunately, the reality isn’t as forgiving - or leather-clad - as the movies and cybersecurity threats lurk around every corner and are a danger to every one of us. The numerous advancements in malware have made it necessary to upgrade our stance toward cybersecurity and adopt changes in our routines that actively protect our cyberspaces. A Security-First Stance In essence, the idea of a security-first stance within cybersecurity involves the implementation and fostering of improved cyber hygiene practices that will keep your network safe. These have to be employed regularly and strictly – a feat that the Sangfor 2023 Cybersecurity Hygiene Calendar can help with. Your company should emulate the best cybersecurity exercises without needing to be told. This automatic response will indicate a functional security-first stance that will serve your organization greatly in terms of safe operation. Why Do We Need a Security-First Culture? For most companies, cybersecurity remains a low priority but there are new and alarming reasons to put pressure on this view. Adopting a security-first culture in your workplace has become more than just good PR, but a valued necessity due to several factors, including: The Rise of Remote and Hybrid Working Environments The Covid-19 pandemic left us all reeling in the face of sudden changes in how we function – with most businesses opting to switch permanently to remote or hybrid-working environments. It’s never been more integral to ensure that our cybersecurity is a priority. As more employees take to using home PCs and setups, the level of cybersecurity involved in protecting your organization’s network from threat actors dwindles. A simple phishing scam against an employee with inadequate guards can open up your entire company’s network to a cyber-attack – making your organization’s data vulnerable and your employees a liability. Rapidly Advancing Technology As the years pass, technology has made gigantic leaps – allowing us to connect and create instantaneously. However, this gift is not always used wisely and the growth in technology has made it so much easier for cybercriminals to infiltrate networks. The expansions in AI technology have even made it possible for some programs to write out malware at the click of a button. The race to technological enlightenment has pushed us to reconsider the way we approach cybersecurity. Sophisticated Malware The emergence of Ransomware-as-a-Service (RaaS) platforms that offer increasingly advanced malware on the dark net threatens our lax attitude towards cybersecurity. Criminals have become more conniving in their methods to undermine your network’s safety – with anonymity. provided by the internet making them brazen in their attempts. The dramatic rise in cyber-attacks only serves as proof of this. While we cannot always ensure that employees are making smart cybersecurity choices in their own time, we can help to create a solid understanding and set of guidelines to adhere to that will create a security-first culture for your workplace. How to Develop a Cybersecurity-First Culture Establishing a security-first culture within an organization begins at the top – where executive choices will sway how the company reacts to and organizes itself against a cybersecurity threat. To foster the development of safe practices there are a few steps that every organization can take: Raising Cybersecurity Awareness While most employees might grumble at the thought of having to endure workshops or training exercises, it’s important to create awareness of the real threats that are out there. Including regular workshops, training exercises, and daily cybersecurity maintenance will ensure that your network is protected. Sangfor provides a valuable Cybersecurity Hygiene Calendar for the 2023 year that will help immensely in ensuring a security-first cyberspace. Creating Shared Responsibility As mentioned before, a cyber-attack will likely enter your network through the careless actions of a single person. Your company is responsible for creating an atmosphere of shared responsibility and care for one another. When groups act in isolation and without the general well-being of the company or each other in mind, they will be less likely to employ better cybersecurity practices. A sense of community is needed to actively prevent being vulnerable to attack. Investing in Better Cybersecurity Tools Naturally, your company’s stance on safety also depends on the type of cybersecurity measures you choose to employ. The use of active threat-hunting technology and advanced endpoint security will ensure that your organization remains guarded while consistently targeting suspicious files in the network. The cybersecurity platform you choose to use should also be easy to maintain and use – many employees find complex safety protocols difficult to abide by and use. This is why Sangfor Technologies prides itself on offering simplified solutions that will give you peace of mind. Sangfor’s 2023 Cyber Hygiene Calendar Sangfor understands that it can be difficult to consistently maintain a security-first cyberspace within your work environment and that is why we’ve made it easier to do by introducing our dedicated Cybersecurity Best Practices Calendar for 2023. Each month giving you sound advice on planning, managing, and enhancing your security operations to better protect your data and infrastructure. Download the calendar for a precisely mapped-out monthly itinerary to keep your network safe and secure.

The Cyber Security Risks of ChatGPT and How to Safeguard Against It

In the 19th century, Alan Turing suggested the possibility of a machine altering its own given instructions and learning from experience. Hailed as the father of Artificial Intelligence, Turing paved the way for the dramatic strides made in the field of AI advancements well into the 21st century. Today we have AI technology infused into our lives through every service we use – from Siri to the facial recognition software used to unlock your phone. Machines were built to make life simpler and create a better future for us all, and we haven’t shied away from it. However, these innovations are not without their inherent risks. The latest and most interactive leap has been the advent of AI chatbots – most notably the ChatGPT model. AI Chatbots and ChatGPT What is a Chatbot? Simply put, a Chatbot is a computer program that simulates human conversation to aid in customer communication and services through the use of artificial intelligence. The software imitates this human-like response through voice commands or text box services and augments or replaces the need for human agents. OpenAI is a leading research laboratory based in San Francesco and in November of 2022, the company released the ChatGPT model which was created in 2015 by Sam Altman and Elon Musk. The ChatGPT program was created to interact conversationally – enabling it to answer follow-up questions, admit to mistakes, challenge an incorrect premise, and reject inappropriate requests. With over one million users already, ChatGPT has amassed quite a fanbase for its uncanny ability to mimic human conversation and provide numerous services across different fields – from essay writing and composing music to answering test questions and writing out computer code. A distinguishing feature of the ChatGPT is that it does not simply give you an index of search results but rather uses its machine learning abilities to explain complex topics and provide practical solutions. This leaves room for error, however - with even the program’s website stating that ChatGPT sometimes writes “plausible-sounding but incorrect or nonsensical answers.”  This hasn’t deterred most companies from tightening up in the saddle though, as the New York Times even reported that Google was so alarmed by ChatGPT’s capabilities that it issued a “code red” to ensure the survival of the company’s search business. The Gaining Popularity of Chatbots and ChatGPT While the concept of Artificial Intelligence always seems to have a dystopian and futuristic implication, most major companies these days have invested in Chatbot technology already and you’ve most likely already become accustomed to it. Siri, Alexa, and Google Home are all service chatbots, and most media houses like Netflix, Hulu, CNN, and MTV have already successfully used Chatbot technology to engage with customers. Businesses and brands are using chatbots in lots of exciting ways, according to Medium. Allowing you to order food, get recommendations, and even schedule flights. The publication lists Starbucks, Lyft, Spotify, and The Wall Street Journal as just some of the industry giants who are also using Chatbot technology to improve services.  The Covid-19 pandemic gave way for automated platforms to take a more central role in service delivery in an effort to reduce human interaction and the technology seamlessly became part of our everyday lives. The Information reported that Microsoft has discussed incorporating OpenAI’s artificial intelligence into its suite of apps - such as Word, PowerPoint, and Outlook - to allow customers to automatically generate text using simple prompts. The computing giant recently invested $1 billion in OpenAI to support the building of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI). Google isn’t a stranger to the AI game either and has its language model called LaMDA - which uses machine-learning techniques to help it understand the intent of search queries and allows it to engage in a free-flowing conversation about a seemingly endless number of topics. Other companies that have made use of AI technology include Jasper - through its AI Content Generator, and Unbounce - which offers AI-powered copywriting tools to generate taglines, social media copy, emails, and product descriptions. However, these huge steps to revolutionize the industry hail an array of risks as well. The Cyber Security risks associated with ChatGPT While the surge of Chatbot technology has proven beneficial, many remain skeptical still, and for good reason. According to CNET, The New York City Department of Education blocked access to ChatGPT on its network devices due to fears about cheating, the negative impacts on student learning, and the accuracy of content produced. Misinformation has been a going concern for the ChatGPT program that only learns from existing human data on the internet – which is far from an accurate source at most times. However, the most crucial aspect to consider is the threat to cybersecurity that the advanced Chatbot has suddenly created. The creator of ChatGPT himself agreed in a tweet that we are close to dangerously strong AI that can pose a huge cybersecurity risk and that approaching a real AGI reality within the next decade means taking that risk seriously. TechCrunch recently wrote about the Check Point company performing a demonstration using the ChatGPT in which it was asked to create a phishing email. At first, the OpenAI mentions that this content might violate its content policy but upon further instructions, the ChatGPT program obliged and created a conceivable phishing email. Check Point also sounded the alarm over the chatbot’s apparent ability to help cyber criminals write out malicious code.  The extensive data and natural language capabilities of ChatGPT make it an attractive tool for cyber criminals who are new to the field or simply too lazy to create their malicious code/email and want to carry out a cyber-attack all the same. ChatGPT Security Risks Medium has suggested that four general categories can be used to classify ChatGPT security risks: Phishing emails: A phishing email is a type of malware wherein the attacker crafts a fraudulent, yet believable email to deceive recipients into carrying out harmful instructions. These instructions can be clicking on an unsecured link, opening an attachment, providing sensitive information, or transferring money into specific accounts. Phishing scams are the most common type of malware found today. Data theft: Data theft is any unauthorized exfiltration and access to confidential data on a network. This includes personal details, passwords, or even software codes – which can be used by threat actors in a ransomware attack or any other malicious purpose. Malware: Malware, or Malicious software, is a broad term referring to any kind of software that intends to harm the user in some form. It can be used to infiltrate private servers, steal information, or simply destroy data. Botnets: A botnet attack is a targeted cyber-attack during which a collection of devices that are all connected to the internet are infiltrated and hijacked by a hacker. Referring to a robot network, a botnet attack is carried out by a nefarious actor that aims to seize control of a collection of computers, servers, and other types of networks for a series of potential malicious purposes. While these may seem frightening, there are still steps that can be taken to reduce the risk of these threats when using ChatGPT services. How to Protect Against Phishing emails With the growing popularity of ChatGPT, we’ve drafted up some tips to keep your network safe from any threat actor trying to take advantage of the technology. It's very important for organizations to invest in cybersecurity to prevent business loss. Check our recent blog on The Cost of Cybercrime vs. The Cost of Cybersecurity. Stay Informed. This may seem like a very basic tool, but your education and ability to recognize a cyber-attack or malware before allowing it onto your network is potentially the only thing between you and a threat actor. Being wary of emails and suspicious links will go far in protecting your information. Using a Secure Password. Another very basic security tip that is often overlooked while usually being the first line of defense against data theft. Ensure that the password you choose is complex and difficult to guess. Turning on Two-factor Authentication. Most networks have two-factor authentication capabilities already which ensure that unique factors are used to ascertain a user’s identity before granting them access. It provides an extra layer of security to your network to avoid any breaches from occurring. Leveraging a Network Detection and Response Platform. An NDR platform provides extensive cybersecurity monitoring for your network to ensure that no malicious threat actors can gain access. Sangfor’s Cyber Command provides unique and advanced threat-hunting capabilities for your company – whether big or small. Installing an Antivirus Software. Decent antivirus software will protect your network from malware, phishing attacks, and most other cyber threats. Monitoring your Accounts. Being aware of the activities in your bank account and on your network will help you to detect suspicious behavior fast and act immediately to reduce the risk of further damage to the network or account. Keeping your Software Updated. Your operating system needs to be at peak performance at all times to provide proper protection for your network. Ensure that the latest updates are installed on your device to mitigate security flaws and bugs that were found in previous versions. You can read more on Cybersecurity risks for small businesses here. The Future of AI Chatbots and Cybersecurity The Chatbot uprising has begun and has played nicely so far - but the risks of a program that can be trained to produce malicious software on a whim need to be supervised and approached with caution. We’ve created an all-too-human conundrum with every leap made in technology where the things we create can change the world, but in the wrong hands, can destroy it as well. The ChatGPT is not without a positive evolution in terms of cybersecurity, as ESET’s Jake Moore revealed to TechCrunch when he said that “if ChatGPT learns enough from its input, it may soon be able to analyze potential attacks on the fly and create positive suggestions to enhance security.” Uncapped accessibility and unlimited usage of ChatGPT made it quite dangerous but Greg Brockman, the president and co-founder of OpenAI, said in a tweet recently that a professional paid version of ChatGPT with faster performance is in the works – which might be able to address the issues of cybersecurity and malicious input suggestions. As with everything, the future of AI technology remains murky to navigate at best. We can only hope that human engineering will create a better world – without compromising its safety. At Sangfor Technologies, your cybersecurity and safety are our main priority – a fact that led to the creation of multiple products and services geared specifically towards negotiating an ever-changing technological landscape filled with cyber threats. Sangfor’s Cybersecurity Solutions Sangfor offers advanced security solutions for your company that can collaborate and coordinate skilled protocols to ensure that the highest security measures are maintained while our advanced threat detection and response tools make use of automated monitoring, sandboxing, behavioral analysis, and other functions to mitigate various advanced malware.

Network Firewall Market Insights Network firewalls form an essential part of organizations’ security infrastructure. The Magic Quadrant for Network Firewalls observes that the network firewall market is still one of the largest security markets and is driven by several factors. Here are a few observations from the report: The rise of hybrid environments is the key factor behind vendors’ introduction of multiple firewall deployment types, such as FWaaS and cloud-native. Interest in zero trust is favoring the selection of single firewall vendors that can help enterprises achieve a ZTNA, so that they do not have to use multiple vendors. There is huge interest in visibility and control of east-west segmentation policies and enhanced security operation integrations. Advanced security capabilities remain a key driving factor, as threat vectors are using more sophisticated means of attacking hybrid workforces and cloud networks.

Sangfor Named as a Sample Vendor in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Endpoint Security, 2022

Sangfor Named Sample Vendor for Secure Web Gateway Sangfor has been named as a Sample Vendor for Secure Web Gateway (SWG) in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Endpoint Security, 2022.[1] We believe that our inclusion as 1 of 10 Sample Vendors from across the world recognizes our SWG product – Sangfor IAG – as one of the best on the market. The latest listing follows our recognition as a Sample Vendor in six other Gartner Hype Cycles for various technologies, including Hyperconvergence, Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), and Cloud Security. These are: Gartner Hype Cycle for Storage and Data Protection Technologies, 2022[2] Gartner Hype Cycle for Compute, 2022[3] Gartner Hype Cycle for Infrastructure Strategy, 2022[4] Gartner Hype Cycle for Workload and Network Security, 2022[5] Gartner Hype Cycle for ICT in China, 2022[6] Gartner Hype Cycle for Security in China, 2022[7] For readers unfamiliar with the Gartner Hype Cycle, the following article provides a good explanation of what it is and how organizations use it to their advantage. Secure Web Gateway in the Gartner Hype Cycle for Endpoint Security Benefit Rating: High Market Penetration: More than 50% of target audience Maturity: Mature mainstream Definition Secure web gateways (SWGs) use URL filtering and a range of advanced threat defense (ATD) methods to protect organizations and enforce internet use and compliance with acceptable use policies. SWGs are delivered as cloud-based services, hybrid (cloud and on-premises), or on-premises solutions only. Why This Is Important Because SWGs are positioned between the user and the internet, they offer valuable protection from internet-born threats. Also, the SWG dashboards and reporting tools provide visibility into users’ behavior on the internet. This functionality is important to detect and investigate whether an employee has violated the organization’s internet usage policy. Sangfor IAG: Secure Your Internet Access Sangfor IAG is a full-feature SWG solution developed by our world-class R&D team and used by over 70,000 customers. As a secure web gateway, Sangfor IAG first and foremost protects and controls the internet access of network users and their endpoints. Security features such as URL filtering, traffic decryption, and illegal Wi-Fi hotspot detection prevent internet-born threats from infecting endpoints. Granular internet access policies for users, user groups, and endpoints control what websites, applications, and functions can be accessed. This helps to prevent malware infection and user unproductivity while ensuring regulatory compliance. Sangfor IAG is designed to provide unparallel visibility into user identity and user behavior – who is accessing what and when – and any hidden threats and applications running in the environment. Sangfor IAG offers centralized management with a single pane of glass web interface and flexible deployment as a hardware appliance, virtual appliance, or both. As a full-feature solution, Sangfor IAG offers a suite of security features and capabilities that further strengthen the organization’s security posture, including: Bandwidth management: Optimize bandwidth allocation for critical applications and restrict the bandwidth of abusive users. Asset discovery: Identify onboarding devices and enforce endpoint compliance checks to ensure they do not introduce malware and vulnerabilities.  Proxy avoidance protection: Detect and block anonymous proxy and VPN applications that can bypass the organization’s internet access controls.  User authentication and management: Intuitive and flexible authentication methods, including a variety of traditional and value-added authentication methods.  Visit the Sangfor IAG webpage to learn more about its features and capabilities, product advantages, use cases, success stories, and more!    Sources: [1] Gartner Inc., Hype Cycle for Endpoint Security, 2022, by Franz Hinner et al., Published 19 December 2022  [2] Gartner Inc., Hype Cycle for Storage and Data Protection Technologies, 2022, by Julia Palmer et al., Published 1 July 2022 [3] Gartner Inc., Hype Cycle for Compute, 2022, by Tony Harvey and Jason Donham, Published 11 July 2022 [4] Gartner Inc., Hype Cycle for Infrastructure Strategy, 2022, by Philip Dawson and Nathan Hill, Published 11 July 2022 [5] Gartner Inc., Hype Cycle for Workload and Network Security, 2022, by Charlie Winckless, Published 18 July 2022 [6] Gartner Inc., Hype Cycle for ICT in China, 2022, by Kevin Ji et al., Published 26 July 2022 [7] Gartner Inc., Hype Cycle for Security in China, 2022, by Feng Gao, Anson Chen et al., Published 10 October 2022 Disclaimer: GARTNER and HYPE CYCLE are a registered trademark and service mark of Gartner, Inc. and/or its affiliates in the U.S. and internationally and are used herein with permission.
