With cyber-crime now bigger than the drug trade, criminal organizations are treating data breach in a structured fashion. They have teams maintaining current knowledge of the latest published exploits and others researching 0-days. This knowledge is feed into increasingly sophisticated tools to assist their attack teams to exploit discovered flaws in your applications. The goal is often to steal data from any organization and later determine whether this data is valuable.
For these speculative breach organisations there is the classic fiscal imperative to minimize the cost of exploit. Hence they use a number of Web Application and API hygiene indicators to quickly assess their probability of success.
The first challenge is therefore to ensure that these factors are addressed across your entire perimeter, protecting you from known automated exploit tools and making you appear an expensive manual target.
SPIRAL UP WITH REDSHIELD
The RedShield Server and Web App Hygiene pack is the first step in defending your perimeter. Included in RedShield’s Express Service offering this immediately protects you from Autosploit and other exploit bots plus increases the perceived cost for attackers. As further risk discovery and mitigation is implemented, the methods available to even a focused attacker can be limited to those not yet known.
