Digital Resilience Helps Customers Prevent and Mitigate WannaCry Impact

RedSeal’s Network Modeling & Risk Scoring Platform Instantly Assesses Exposure and Prioritizes Most Vulnerable Systems for Remediation

/EINPresswire.com/ — SUNNYVALE, CA–(Marketwired – May 15, 2017) –  Today RedSeal (redseal.net), a leader in network modeling and risk-scoring technology, announced assessment, mitigation and remediation strategies for the WannaCry Ransomware worm (a.k.a. WanaCrypt0r 2.0, wcry). Customers using the RedSeal platform today will be able to bring rich network context into existing security solutions such as vulnerability scanners and SIEM applications to understand the potential paths the worm can take, and how to apply the right controls to stop the spread. The RedSeal platform allows customers to quickly run a series of queries and reports to do the following:

Assess and Limit Exposure: By running access queries from all untrusted networks to trusted sources, customers can identify all devices and endpoints that are accessible from untrusted networks over vulnerable ports.

Prioritize Vulnerable Systems: By importing vulnerability scan results into the RedSeal model, customers can verify that all areas of their network were actually scanned. Vulnerable hosts can be sorted based on both local and downstream risk. The network context provided by RedSeal delivers risk-based prioritization for remediation based on location, business value of the asset, and whether the asset is reachable from untrusted sources.

Contain and Mitigate the Attack: Most enterprises have a large number of legacy and unsupported devices in their network that cannot be easily patched (if at all). RedSeal customers can easily produce a list of mitigating controls to isolate and contain vulnerable endpoints — and can leverage their network model to discover all areas of the network that are accessible from a vulnerable endpoint. Detailed path queries reveal network devices where they can deploy controls such as firewall rules to reduce downstream risk.

“Once again we see that hackers are able to infiltrate even the most sophisticated and protected infrastructures, which is why we advocate resilience — the ability to recover and remediate immediately,” said Ray Rothrock, CEO of RedSeal. “RedSeal customers today are able to instantly assess their exposure to WannaCry, prioritize vulnerabilities based on actual risk, and get detailed remediation options. That is the definition of resilience.”
