Frequently Asked Question

A firewall is a network security tool that inspects and filters traffic between devices in a private computer network and the internet. Firewalls allow or deny incoming and outgoing network traffic based on defined rules. This enables users to block unauthorized data as well as prevent malware and other security threats from breaching the network.

Network Firewalls generally come as hardware network devices or software applications. Hardware firewalls are placed in a central network location to filter traffic for an entire network. Software firewalls are installed on endpoints to filter traffic to and from specific devices.

There are also different types of firewalls, including packet filtering firewalls, stateful inspection firewalls, proxy firewalls, network address translation (NAT) firewalls, and next generation firewalls (NGFW).

Next generation firewalls (NGFWs) are the newest generation of firewall technology. NGFWs use something called deep packet inspection (DPI) to inspect the content (payload) of data packets. This allows users to create more granular firewall rules based on specific types of data, applications, devices, and users.

Moreover, NGFWs are a type of unified threat management (UTM) solution. UTMs integrate multiple security features into one device. In the case of NGFW’s, this includes antivirus, intrusion detection system, threat intelligence, application control, email security, and more.

Traditional firewalls like packet filtering and stateful inspection firewalls only support rules based on packet header information, namely the source and destination IP address, protocol, and port number. This is very limited and does not offer much flexibility.

Next generation firewalls use something called deep packet inspection (DPI). DPI allows NGFWs to inspect the content (payload) of data packets and is a key enabler of enhanced firewall protection. One the one hand, users can create granular firewall rules based on specific types of data, applications, services, devices, and users. The allows NGFWs to block malicious data that exploit specific applications and services. DPI also provides the basis for the additional security features of NGFWs to function. With visibility into the data, antivirus can scan traffic for malware and the integrated intrusion prevention system can detect suspicious traffic activity.

Next generation firewalls are a type of unified threat management (UTM) solution that integrates multiple security features into one device. Typical features of NGFWs include:

  • Antivirus: Detects the presence of malware in traffic.
  • Intrusion Detection System (IDS): Detects suspicious traffic activity that might indicate an attack.
  • Intrusion Prevention System (IPS): Responds to detected suspicious traffic activity.
  • Threat Intelligence: Provides real-time threat intelligence to detect emerging threats.
  • Sandboxing: Executes suspicious files in a test environment to check for maliciousness.
  • Application Awareness and Control: Identifies applications and controls which apps are allowed to communicate with the internet.
  • URL Filtering: Blocks access to URLs that are malicious or unauthorized by the user.
  • Email Protection: Filters out malicious and unwanted email.
  • Web Application Firewall (WAF): A firewall dedicated to protecting web applications.

Granular Traffic Filtering: Thanks to DPI, next generation firewalls have visibility into the type of data and the applications, services, devices, and users processing the data. This allows organizations to create firewall rules to enforce granular access policies. DPI also enables NGFWs block malicious data that targets specific apps and services.

Early Threat Detection: NGFWs are integrated with security features like antivirus and intrusion detection system to detect malware and cyber-attacks before they can breach the network. This is important because threats are harder to detect after a breach, which increases the likelihood of a successful attack.

Security Logging: NGFWs support security logging, which is important for several reasons. For example, security analysts can analyze logs to hunt for threats that were missed by the firewall. Security logs are also needed to meet compliance requirements in certain industries and jurisdictions.

An organization should deploy a next generation firewall if compromise of its data and systems lead to material impact. This can be anything from significant financial loss, business downtime, business loss, and reputation damage. Given the sophistication of today’s security threats and the limitations of traditional firewalls to detect them, NGFWs should be the default firewall of choice for organizations looking for robust protection. NGFW vendors typically offer models of varying specifications and capabilities to suit the needs of different organizations, from small businesses to large enterprises.

Next generation firewalls provide superior protection to enterprise networks. This ultimately helps organizations minimize the chances of experiencing a cyber-attack. Considering how damaging cyber-attacks are, effective defense against them is vital for business continuity and prosperity.

NGFWs are also more cost-effective and reduce complexity by integrating various security features that would otherwise be deployed separately. This is especially beneficial for SMBs that lack the resources and expertise to deploy and manage disparate tools.

Next generation firewalls are relatively harder to use than traditional firewalls and may require a dedicated professional to operate and maintain. However, NGFW vendors are responsible for creating the complex firewall and IDS rules that detect and block security threats. Users simply need to keep their firewall up to date. NGFWs require extra work when organizations wish to create their own firewall rules, but NGFWs may come with templates to aid this process.

Because multiple security features are integrated into one device, NGFWs can be managed from a single interface. This in fact makes NGFWs easier to manage compared to separate security tools.

Next generation firewalls do a great job at keeping threats out of the network. However, cyber criminals are constantly refining and evolving their tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP), so no single cyber security tool can always achieve total protection. That is why it is standard practice for organizations to deploy other security tools in addition to a firewall.

For example, antivirus or more advanced Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solutions are needed to detect threats that managed to evade the firewall and land on endpoints. For advanced persistent threats (APTs) that hide and spread in the network for a long period, a User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA) solution like Network Detection and Response (NDR) works best.

NGFW vendors generally offer various models to suit different needs. Organizations should choose a firewall that fits their unique situation to get the best out of their NGFW. Important factors to consider include the NGFWs security capabilities, specifications such as throughput, cost, deployment mode, ease of operation, service, etc. For a more detailed discussion on choosing the right NGFW, feel free to read our enterprise firewall buyer’s guide.

Customer reviews are also an excellent source of reference. For example, Gartner Peer Insights provides vetted and verified reviews to help prospective buyers gain objective and trustworthy insight into the NGFW products of different vendors.

Space Cybersecurity: Exploring Challenges, and Opportunities

Mankind has always been reaching for the stars. From the development of the wheel to the first automobile, humans have never faltered in going beyond what was thought possible. Space travel is only one of the latest innovative and rapidly growing sectors of human intelligence and design to lift off the ground. The privatization of the space industry is taking place, so as the opportunities in Space Cybersecurity is also increasing. The global space economy hit record numbers in 2022 by reaching US$ 546 billion and is projected to climb another 41% over the next five years. This drastic rise is due to new technologies, an increase in private and public company space exploration, and investments from governments. A general interest in space ventures and technology has revolutionized to potential of space for the digital age. Unfortunately, space has to endure a lot more than just man-made devices bumbling around in orbit and now has to face the accompanying challenge of space cybersecurity as well. Cybersecurity in Space: Recent Scenario Now, you might think that space is far removed from your daily life but most of the technologies and infrastructure we depend on are circling the planet. From telecommunications satellites and GPS to internet connectivity and weather tracking, technology in space is crucial for global communication and innovation. A cyber-attack on space infrastructure can have devastating effects on everyone on the ground. Cybersecurity for space exploration is also important to maintain secure lines of communication, accurate navigation, and precise control. Space exploration is already a critical venture that requires certainty and stability to ensure the safety of astronauts, technicians, and more. This means that cybersecurity in space should be a priority concern. One of the biggest space cybersecurity threats is hacking into spacecraft and satellites. Cybercriminals can easily take control of vital systems, manipulate controls, and steal confidential data. Jamming and spoofing methods are often used to disrupt or slow down the communication of data from satellites. The war in Ukraine saw the use of jamming and other cyberattacks on the Starlink SpaceX terminal. Military leaders have said that these tactics are common weapons. A research paper from the University of Oxford has also stated that the threat of cyber-attacks has risen due to space systems becoming “increasingly interconnected and computationally complex.” However, most space stations and infrastructure were built before there was a global focus on cybersecurity. This means that these systems are highly complex but also highly vulnerable to cyber-attacks. Two Biggest Telescopes were hacked - a challenge in space cybersecurity On the 1st of August, the National Science Foundation's National Optical-Infrared Astronomy Research Laboratory - or NOIRLab - reported a cybersecurity incident that halted operations at its Gemini North Telescope in Hawaii and Gemini South Telescope in Chile. These attacks came just a few days before the NCSC issued its advisory to American space companies and research organizations about the threat of cyber-attacks and espionage. Smaller telescopes on Cerro Tololo in Chile were also affected and the staff are still unsure about how the attacks took place. According to a statement by NOIRLab, the recovery process of the affected facilities and telescopes is still ongoing. The scientific community suffers every moment that operations are disrupted by cyber-attacks – not only with expenses but also due to the data being lost during downtime. FBI and Air Force Warn of Cyber-Attacks on Space Industry In August, the FBI, the National Counterintelligence and Security Center (NCSC), and the Air Force Office of Special Investigations released a bulletin warning that foreign intelligence agencies could use cyber-attacks, shell companies, or old-fashioned espionage to collect sensitive information about American space capabilities or innovative technologies. The agencies noted that these foreign intelligence entities “recognize the importance of the commercial space industry to the US economy and national security - including the growing dependence of critical infrastructure on space-based assets.” They go on to state that US space-related innovation and assets are seen as potential threats as well as valuable opportunities to acquire vital technologies and expertise. The advisory went on the state that these attacks could also collect sensitive data related to satellite payloads to disrupt and degrade US satellite communications, remote sensing, and imaging capabilities while also targeting American commercial space infrastructure during international conflicts. The advisory also claims that the global space economy will grow to more than US$ 1 trillion within seven years. The agencies warned that space infrastructure is “fundamental to every aspect of our society, including emergency services, energy, financial services, telecommunications, transportation, and food and agriculture.” What are the Challenges in Space Cybersecurity As mentioned before, cybersecurity for space has been a challenge due to the older systems being used. Most governments have yet to implement adequate cybersecurity measures in space projects due to a lack of funding, infrastructure, and skills. The complexity, interconnection, and rapid growth of the space sector also make it a wider target surface for hackers. Limited Resources and Bandwidth Constraints Without the right funding and internet, most countries around the world are battling to stay ahead in the space race. These limited resources can lead to low or non-existent security measures in place. Vulnerabilities in Satellite Systems and Ground Infrastructure Between the complex operations between space, ground, links, and users, there are several potential vulnerabilities to contend with when it comes to space and ground infrastructure. Cyber threats now also have a larger target with the growing interest from private and commercial organizations. A few of the potentially vulnerable areas in existing space cybersecurity include: Software-defined radio compromise. Insider threats. Hacking ground systems to interact with satellites. Using design and hardware development to imbed malicious features. Communications hacking on TT&C systems through command link injections, replay attacks, or electronic attacks such as jamming and spoofing. Software vulnerabilities. Potential Impact of Cyber-Attacks on Space Missions Cyber-attacks on space infrastructure can include malware installation, ransomware attacks, and data or system breaches. All these attacks can disrupt communications, supply chains, national security, internet access, and global economies. Space missions affected by cyber-attacks can also lead to the injury or death of astronauts, the destruction of property, and the halting of progress in space exploration. What are the Opportunities in Space Cybersecurity? As the space race intensifies and nations rush to create new and innovative technologies to keep up, cybersecurity for space is also becoming a lucrative market. Smaller businesses can seize this opportunity to fill the demand for cybersecurity measures for space technology. Forbes has listed a few ways that smaller companies can amplify their brand in this rapidly expanding sector: Innovate and develop space cybersecurity solutions. Stay informed on industry trends and legislation. Establish thought leadership. Collaborate with educational institutions. Participate in industry associations and events. Diversify service offerings. Create strategic alliances. Establish your brand as a pioneer in the field. Cybersecurity Measures for Space Missions Space systems can be vulnerable because of features like hardcoded credentials – which are used by ships, planes, and the military and can be accessed easily by hackers. This is why space missions need enhanced cybersecurity measures that ensure the safe transmission of data. Some of the cybersecurity measures that can be used include: Secure Communication Protocols and Encryption Techniques: Keeping communications between ground and space stations secure is a crucial element of space cybersecurity. The use of encrypting techniques will ensure a protected line of communication that can be vital for the safety of lives, data, and technology. Authentication and Access Control Mechanisms: Maintaining the right access controls will ensure that only authorized personnel have access to critical infrastructure. Using a zero-trust policy will go a long way to keeping the space system secure. Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems: Cyber threats need to be identified, isolated, and mitigated by the infrastructure in place. Space missions need to employ active intrusion detection and threat intelligence to root out cyber-attacks before they can do any damage to the system. Data Encryption and Protection Strategies: Hackers will try to exfiltrate satellite data or manipulate data to deliver incorrect transmissions. With data encryption, communications are secure, and the data cannot be stolen, manipulated, or damaged. Space technology has enhanced and elevated as the modern age has developed. Satellites are no longer merely amplifying signals but are growing much more complex and playing a much bigger role in communications on Earth. These innovative new designs have opened a whole world of opportunities for developers, engineers, and inventive minds. We just have to tread carefully and ensure that the future we create today can still be secure tomorrow. Sangfor is a leading cybersecurity and cloud provider that believes in reaching beyond the stars to create a secure, innovative, and better future for us all.

Cybersecurity Awareness Month CSAM 2023: Key Strategies

Cybersecurity is a growing industry in the modern age. As technology evolves, so do the threats against it. To emphasize the importance of cybersecurity to the public and business sectors, October was deemed the National Cyber Security Awareness Month (CSAM) by the US and is an internationally recognized awareness campaign. Cybersecurity solutions protect businesses and individuals from damage to networks, systems, and data. Businesses are quickly undergoing a digital transformation to keep up with the times. This creates a gaping vulnerability for enterprises only looking to advance their technology. National University has described the top reasons why cyber security is now crucial for businesses: The Protection of Data – Companies need to keep their data secure from breaches or ransomware. This includes personal information, financial records, and propriety intellectual property. A data breach can financially cripple a business and ruin its reputation. Regulatory Compliance – Most businesses are subject to regulations dictating the standard cybersecurity standards to be met for a business to operate lawfully. Cybersecurity solutions ensure that you stay compliant at all times to avoid hefty penalties. Maintaining Business Operations – Preventing downtime is one of the main purposes of good cyber security. A cyber-attack can disrupt operations for long periods – affecting profits, livelihoods, and supply chains. Building Trust – Customers are the cornerstone of a good business. Cyber security measures show that a business cares about data safety and fosters loyal and long-term clients. Staying Ahead – Investing in cybersecurity solutions also demonstrates to the market how seriously you take your business. This gives you a competitive edge and gives you a better – more secure – position in the industry. CISA Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2023 This year, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) is marking the 20th annual Cybersecurity Awareness Month. The agency has launched a new awareness program that encourages 4 simple steps to stay safe online. These steps are described as “simple actions we should all take not only during Cybersecurity Awareness Month - but every day throughout the year.” The theme of 2023 is "It's easy to stay safe online." The 4 CISA cybersecurity awareness month steps include: Using Strong Passwords and a Password Manager: The agency has noted that strong passwords are crucial to protecting data in the digital age. Using long, random, and unique passwords that include uppercase, lowercase, numbers, and symbols will go a long way to securing your accounts. Password managers are also ideal for storing and generating strong passwords. Turning on Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA): Using multi-factor authentication protects your accounts and reduces your chances of getting hacked. This feature is especially helpful for social media, email, and finance accounts. Recognizing and Reporting Phishing: Phishing scams make up the majority of data breaches. CISA has asked that the public be vigilant when answering calls, emails, or texts asking for personal information. Avoid sharing any credentials without verifying the source through the official organization. Moreover, try to report any phishing scams you suspect to the relevant authorities or departments. Update Software: The last step is to ensure that your software is updated with the latest security patches. Regularly check for updates to keep your systems running efficiently and securely. Source: CISA Sangfor has already touched on the importance of these issues when discussing Cybersecurity Awareness Month CSAM 2022 and how you can stay protected from cyber threats. Moving into 2023, the cyber threats we face are now rapidly evolved and evolving. To counter this, businesses need to take full advantage of cybersecurity solutions while they still can. Top Enterprise Cyber Threats in 2023 2023 has been a year of great strides in technology. From AI and the Internet of Things to 5G and quantum computing, the future has never looked this bright. However, these steps cannot be taken without the risks casting shadows on their progress. Enterprises are becoming the soft and favorite target of Cyber criminals. In 2022, we have published this highly detailed article on Top Ransomware attacks in 2022. The IT sector has been struggling under the weight of new and advanced cyber threats that are rapidly evolving. The University of San Diego has noted that these threats have placed the data and assets of corporations, governments, and individuals at constant risk. The university further rounded up some of the top cybersecurity threats of 2023 that businesses need to watch out for: Vulnerability in the Cloud While cloud platforms offer many benefits in terms of storage, security, and flexibility – they also present certain risks. The university went on to caution against the following cloud vulnerabilities: Misconfiguration Poor access control Shared tenancy Supply chain vulnerabilities Insecure APIs Lack of multi-factor authentication Data Breaches Data breaches are gaining traction in the modern age. Even large companies are not safe anymore and risk losing billions through compromised data. This article illustrates the recent data breaches in 2022. In addition, not only the EU, but the ASEAN countries also apply fines and penalties to enterprises for the data breaches. Mobile Attacks The popularity of smartphones has made them a growing target for cyber-criminals. Spyware, phishing attacks, and hacking have all gotten easier in the smartphone generation. Complex Phishing The use of machine learning and AI has made phishing scams more sophisticated. Using these technologies, hackers can now make credible-looking phishing scams to manipulate people into downloading malware to steal credentials and personal information. The 2023 Phishing attacks statistics can be read from here. Evolved Ransomware In line with evolved malware, ransomware has also taken a few classes to up the ante. The RaaS – Ransomware As A Service has made hacking simple. RaaS is malware designed by professional coders, designed to be launched against a target quickly and without the need to be an expert coder, hacker or cyber-criminal. Sangfor had a detailed webinar on Hacking Made Simple With Ransomware-as-a-Service. Cryptojacking The university also claimed that cryptocurrency is responsible for the Cryptojacking trend. Basically, cryptocurrency is fueling the ransomware attacks. This involves hackers hijacking a computer’s processing power to “mine” for cryptocurrency. This can cause serious downtime and performance issues for businesses. State-Sponsored Attacks Cybercrime is also an attractive avenue for entire nations looking to infiltrate other governments and attack critical infrastructure. The Russia-Ukraine cyber-attacks have highlighted the dangers of state-sponsored hacking. This emerging threat also poses a danger to thousands of innocent civilians. IoT Attacks Statista noted that the number of devices connected to the Internet of Things is expected to reach 75 billion by 2025. These connections can be useful for businesses to collect data, streamline processes, and stay in touch. However, it’s also a vulnerability having that many devices connected under the threat of a potential cyber-attack. Smart Medical Devices and Electronic Medical Records (EMRs) The healthcare sector is facing rapid digitalization in a race to keep up with emerging technologies. As a result, many of these facilities have fallen behind cybersecurity measures. Cyber-attacks on the healthcare industry can affect thousands of patients. These areas are especially vulnerable to ransomware attacks and phishing scams. A Severe Shortage of Cybersecurity Professionals The university also cited the shortage of cybersecurity talent as a factor in the IT industry’s high alert. As fewer cybersecurity professionals are found, the digital landscape faces an uncertain future. Cyber Security Awareness Month is about understanding the growing threats to your data, networks, and devices. As these trends grow and new ones emerge in 2023, it’s our joint responsibility to mitigate the risks through the use of robust cybersecurity solutions. Cyber Security Implications of Remote Work The COVID-19 pandemic changed the world in several ways. For the business sector, the sudden shift to remote work became a popular setup. Most companies realized that they could cut costs, maximize productivity, and improve employee retention through remote work. Today, the options include a hybrid working model as well. This entails working from home while also visiting the office as needed. While the remote working setup has multiple benefits, it can also present a cybersecurity risk. Securing your network for remote workers can be challenging for most companies. Some of the common cybersecurity challenges faced can include: Remote Accessibility Naturally, a remote worker needs access to the network from wherever they are. However, companies need to be completely certain about who exactly is accessing their files and network at all times. Organizations can set up the Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI). VDI is a technology that virtualizes desktops and hosts them on remote servers. It enables users to access and use their desktop environment and applications from any device and location. Social Engineering Working from home also makes you more vulnerable to phishing scams and other social engineering tactics. Often, workers assume the legitimacy of emails and attachments due to constantly receiving them from the company regularly. Data Loss Remote workers means that company data can often be stored in different locations and on less secure devices. This opens your business up to a potential data breach. Ransomware Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) and Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) have been widely used to enable remote working conditions. However, the use of these technologies presents a security vulnerability that has been exposed by a hike in ransomware attacks. There has been a direct correlation noted between the rise of remote work and the increase in ransomware attacks. Shadow IT Shadow IT is an unregulated IT solution carried out by novice employees. This includes workers accessing data on their own home devices. Even though well-intentioned, these processes can cause more harm than good and create an attractive vulnerability for hackers. Building a Layered Cybersecurity Defense To fully capitalize on National Cyber Security Awareness Month, companies need to invest in the right tools and services to maintain the best security posture. Enterprises have a responsibility to their customers and workers to build a layered cybersecurity defense. Fortunately, Sangfor’s solutions are available for you. Sangfor Technologies is a leading provider of advanced, integrated, and effective cybersecurity solutions that will enhance your defense plan. Some of the essential tools to build a fully layered and impenetrable defense for business include: Managed Detection and Response This is a solution that finds and mitigates threats before they can damage the network or access data. Sangfor’s Cyber Guardian platform is an MDR cybersecurity platform that combines state-of-the-art AI threat detection technology with the latest global threat intelligence to detect and identify both known and unknown threats. Using logic and skill to analyze threats for context-relevant threat notifications and alerts enhances the effectiveness and value of security operations. Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) Using a SASE solution keeps your cybersecurity agile, secure, and efficient – especially for businesses that need secure direct access between branches or remote offices. Sangfor’s Secure Access solution provides a secure, cloud-based connection throughout the company. The platform also audits both external and internal traffic to ensure consistent network security from malware, viruses, ransomware, and insider threats. Zero-Trust Network Access (ZTNA) Adopting a zero-trust environment for your network assumes that access authorization needs to be re-established often. This prevents the company’s data and network from being accessed by people without those privileges. Employee Training and Awareness More than just cybersecurity platforms and services, the core of any business is the workforce. Your employees are your greatest asset; however, they can also be your greatest liability. National Cybersecurity Awareness Month CSAM is the ideal time to brush up on the cyber hygiene practices that need to be followed by every employee. Educating and training your employees to see the signs of cyber-attack and actively avoid risky cyber behavior can greatly improve your company’s security posture. A well-informed workforce is less likely to click on suspicious links, download dodgy attachments, or put company data at risk. Another key to ensuring employee cyber-safety is to protect the endpoints of your network. Endpoint security is a process of protecting all the endpoints of a network. This includes laptops, cellphones, tablets, desktops, and more. Once secured, these endpoints can’t be infiltrated by malware. Sangfor’s Endpoint Secure platform provides holistic end-to-end protection before, during, and after an attack. Using powerful, multi-layered threat detection, it mitigates all cyber threats seamlessly. Moreover, the platform has the added benefit of being user-friendly and easy to maintain. This accessibility makes it an ideal solution for employee cybersecurity awareness campaigns. Incident Response Preparedness While we can try to stay protected, unfortunately, you can’t always prevent a cyber-attack from happening. This is why it’s equally important to have an actionable incident response plan ready to go. The 2023 Cybersecurity Awareness Month is the ideal time to campaign for a clear and concise Incident Response Plan for your company. This is a set of guidelines to follow after a cyber-attack that prioritizes 3 main aspects: Breach containment Minimizing damage Restoring operations Cyber-attacks can have a huge impact on businesses – regardless of size. However, most small to medium-sized companies balk under the weight of an attack. While prevention is better than a cure, you can’t always be the lucky statistic. Some of the main reasons why businesses need an effective incident response plan are: It allows you to react faster and minimize damage to the network. It can save you the cost of a complete breach. It helps to restore your brand’s reputation. It helps your company stay compliant with your local data regulations. It signifies that your company is prepared in the face of uncertainty. It assures your customers, partners, and potential clients that they’re in safe hands. Making the Most of Cybersecurity Awareness Month Cybersecurity Awareness Month 2023 - CSAM is a teaching moment for us all. In a world caught up in the latest trends, we tend to lose sight of the true nature of working together to achieve greatness. This October Cybersecurity Awareness Month needs to be a reminder to us all that it is only through the collaboration of services, employees, leaders, and governments, that we can truly secure our digital landscape.
