There is no shortage of conversation around enterprise security. In light of some recent, high-profile hacking incidents, everyone’s talking about the importance of securing networks, data and devices in avoiding a worst case scenario of confidential customer or organisational information or IP being compromised. Interestingly, these conversations often neglect one vital component- the applications that operate on these systems and how their own vulnerabilities can bring down an organisations’ entire security strategy.

Today’s security landscape is constantly changing. Attackers are becoming more sophisticated and nimble, leading to new threats and attacks evolving every day. Tailor-made, stealthy threats now routinely evade traditional, point-in-time security defences by using multiple attack vectors. Further, advanced attacks use whatever unprotected paths exist - often blending paths - to compromise targets. Cyber criminals continue to go to great lengths to remain undetected, using technologies and methods that result in nearly imperceptible Indications of Compromise (IoCs). At the same time, the attack surface is increasing because modern networks are evolving, extending beyond traditional walls to include public and private data centres, endpoints, virtual machines, mobile devices, and the cloud.

Over the past two decades, industrialised nations have been systematically pillaged by enterprising nations and criminal organisations that had the foresight to see the opportunities of governments, business, industry and people around the world rushing to connect to the Internet.

For years, passwords have been the dominant means by which organisations authenticate customer access to online services. Password-based authentication is easy and familiar for customers, and is initially inexpensive for organizations to deploy at scale. But, while password-based authentication may be appropriate in some instances, it is no longer suitable for the wide range of services where it is currently being used.

The cyber-attack on Sony Pictures Entertainment in late November is not the first time that the Sony Corporation has been a target for cyber-criminals and if anything can be learned from the attacks, it is that corporations are not taking cyber-security seriously.
