Why Managed Detection and Response Zeroes In On the Endpoint

This post was co-written with Wade Woolwine [], Rapid7 Director of Managed Services. What three categories do attackers exploit to get on your corporate network? Vulnerabilities, misconfigurations, and credentials. Whether the attack starts by stealing cloud service credentials, or exploiting a vulnerability on a misconfigured, internet-facing asset, compromising an internal asset is a great milestone for an intruder. Once an endpoint is comprom

Addressing the issue of misguided security spending

It's the $64,000 question in security – both figuratively and literally: where do you spend your money? Some people vote, at least initially, for risk assessment. Some for technology acquisition. Others for ongoing operations. Smart security leaders will cover all the above and more. It's interesting though – according to a recent study titled the 2017 Thales Data Threat Report [

SIEM Tools Aren't Dead, They're Just Shedding Some Extra Pounds

Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) [] is security's Schrödinger's cat. While half of today's organizations have purchased SIEM tools, it's unknown if the tech is useful to the security team… or if its heart is even beating or deployed. In response to this pain, people, mostly marketers, love to shout that SIEM is dead, and analysts are proposing new frameworks with SIEM 2.0/3.0, Security Analytics, User & Entity Behavior Analytics [https://w

IDC: 70% of Successful Breaches Originate on the Endpoint

Most organizations focus on their server infrastructure when thinking about security – a fact we often see in our Nexpose [] user base where many companies only scan their servers. However, IDC finds that 70% of successful breaches originate on the endpoint. This does not necessarily imply insider threats, it is rather a sign that phishing is prevalent, cheap, and surprisingly effective in compromising machines. Given this compelling data, I strongly urge

How to use Nexpose to find all assets affected by DROWN

Introduction DROWN is a cross-protocol attack against OpenSSL. The attack uses export cipher suites and SSLv2 to decrypt TLS sessions. SSLv2 was developed by Netscape and released in February 1995. Due to it containing a number of security flaws, the protocol was completely redesigned and SSLv3 was released in 1996. Even though SSLv2 was declared obsolete over 20 years ago, there are still servers supporting the protocol. What's both fascinating and devastating about the DROWN attack, is that se
