Paris, le 3 octobre 2013 : WALLIX, éditeur spécialisé dans la gestion et la traçabilité des  comptes à privilèges présente aujourd’hui une initiative originale de communication conçue pour sensibiliser les directeurs informatiques aux risques liés à la menace interne, phénomène aussi appelé Insider Threat.

Pour l’éditeur français WALLIX, une stratégie de sécurité complète et cohérente doit certes, prévoir une protection contre les menaces provenant de l’extérieur de l’entreprise, mais également contre les risques qu’implique l’absence de contrôle des comptes à privilèges et leurs utilisateurs. Ce pan de la sécurité informatique reste en effet méconnu et encore mal maîtrisé.

L’affaire Snowden a ainsi mis en lumière une réalité flagrante à savoir qu’une seule personne isolée peut provoquer un fait divers mondial en utilisant simplement ses comptes à privilèges. La malveillance n’est donc pas l’apanage exclusif des pirates, l’erreur humaine peut aussi venir de l’intérieur et présenter de graves conséquences en interne et en externe.

Pour sensibiliser les DSI et les RSSI à ce constat, WALLIX a choisi à l’occasion de la sortie de sa nouvelle version WAB4.0 de créer une bande dessinée appelée « La Menace Interne » illustrant en images plusieurs cas de menaces internes ou « Insider Threats » : espionnage concurrentiel, malveillance d’un employé, entorse à la conformité, l’ensemble de ces situations ainsi que les conséquences qu’elles impliquent sont illustrées et détaillées de façon simple et réaliste. Ces trois scénarii touchent ainsi des entreprises aux profils et aux métiers différents qui correspondent à des situations vécues au quotidien pour une multitude d’organisations.

Pour Jean-Noël de Galzain: « Avec Wallix AdminBastion, nous intervenons en priorité sur la traçabilité des utilisateurs de comptes à privilèges. Avec l’expérience nous sommes frappés du contraste existant entre le budget accordé à la protection du périmètre informatique et la méconnaissance voire l’absence de prise en compte de la menace interne. Les dangers que font peser la prolifération des comptes à privilèges et tous les droits qui leur sont associés sur  le réseau ou l’accès aux données des entreprises sont trop considérables pour être ignorés. Certaines organisations ont tant de prestataires externes ou internes qu’elles ne peuvent passer à côté du problème plus longtemps sous peine de mésaventures. En tant que spécialistes de la traçabilité, notre rôle est également de sensibiliser les utilisateurs et les clients dès aujourd’hui à ces menaces au quotidien. Au-delà des solutions que propose WALLIX, nous avons donc choisi un support plus « ludique » pour faire passer cette information sur les risques bien réels de menace interne.

L’Insider Threat intègre toutes les populations ayant des droits sur le réseau ! Cette bande dessinée a été conçue pour faire prendre conscience aux DSI et RSSI qu’une sécurité ne sera cohérente que si la menace est également prise en compte. Elle prend des exemples concrets dans lesquels les responsables informatiques pourront se retrouver et comprendre qu’une erreur humaine interne ou la malveillance d’un utilisateur interne peut avoir des conséquences aussi désastreuses sur la réputation et la viabilité de l’entreprise qu’une attaque provenant de l’extérieur. »

Adobe reported what it called a “sophisticated” cyberattack on its network where hackers gained unauthorized access to confidential customer information including IDs and encrypted passwords. The hack affects some 2.9 million customers worldwide, the company estimates.

Information accessed in the attack includes names, encrypted credit or debit card numbers, expiration dates, and order information. Adobe does not believe the criminals removed decrypted credit or debit card numbers from company systems, however.

This security breach extended to Adobe source code for numerous products such as Acrobat, ColdFusion, ColdFusion Builder, and other company products, Adobe said. According to a blog entry, Adobe believes that the two security violations are related.

In addition to contacting and assisting law enforcement, Adobe says it’s resetting relevant customer passwords. Customers whose user ID or passwords were affected will be notified via email and instructed to change their passwords. Adobe also advises changing passwords on any website where customers may have used the same user ID and password as their Adobe account.

The company will also notify customers whose credit or debit card information may have been compromised. Those customers will receive additional instructions about how to guard against credit card fraud. In addition, Adobe says U.S. customers whose information was compromised will be offered the option of enrolling in a one-year complimentary credit monitoring membership where available.

Adobe reports it has notified the banks involved in customer payments for Adobe, so that the company can work with the credit card companies and card-issuing banks to help protect customers’ accounts.

New Barracuda Firewall Models Offer Cost-Effective, Easy-to-Use Next-Generation Firewall Functionality for Small Businesses

Campbell, Calif., (September 4, 2013) – Barracuda Networks, Inc., a leading provider of security and storage solutions, today announced the new Barracuda Firewall X100 and X101, next-generation firewalls designed for small businesses. Barracuda also released new firmware, version 6.1, which includes powerful configuration wizards that make setup and network configurations a simple and seamless experience, as well as updated security enhancements including secure remote access through an integrated SSL VPN.

According to Compass Intelligence, there are approximately 22 million companies worldwide with less than 1,000 employees, and approximately three million in the U.S. alone. Many of these organizations lack the resources of larger organizations with dedicated IT staff and budgets. Unfortunately, the increasing sophistication of security threats does not discriminate by business size or IT budget. These smaller organizations all have critical business data and need to implement a security solution that protects them and fits into their constrained IT budget.

“The Barracuda Firewall is ideal for small businesses where employees bring their own laptops and may use social media and other consumer-facing web applications at work,” said Stephen Pao, GM Security Business, Barracuda. “The new Barracuda Firewall X100 series empowers administrators, enabling those small businesses to protect their businesses with comprehensive next-generation firewalling, but without the pricing that breaks budgets.”

Barracuda recently conducted a study among more than 100 organizations to analyze the relationship between ease of use, firewall configurations and security gaps. The study found that one out of two companies experienced network downtime as a result of misconfigured firewall rules. This study underpins the importance of delivering powerful functionality that is also easy to set up and manage. Designed with this ease of use in mind, Barracuda Firewall version 6.1 offers:

New models for small businesses. The new Barracuda Firewall X100 series provides cost-effective next-generation firewall functionality. The Barracuda Firewall X100, and the Barracuda Firewall X101 with Wi-Fi, appliances include 4x GbE copper ports and enable small businesses to avoid tradeoffs between having an enterprise-grade firewall and keeping within resource-constrained IT budgets.

Powerful setup wizards. All Barracuda Firewalls now offer configuration wizards to facilitate easy initial setup and configuration including multiple networks and multiple uplinks with link balancing. The setup wizard helps ensure that a Barracuda Firewall can be installed within minutes, while the network configuration wizard enables proper and quick activation of critical firewalling features.

Integrated SSL VPN. The Barracuda Firewall models X200 and above enable remote users to access internal network resources through a standard web browser, without requiring the installation of client software on end user devices. The Barracuda Firewall SSL VPN feature can be used to grant remote users access to web applications, client and server applications, as well as internal network resources such as Outlook Web Access, SharePoint, or even Windows Remote Desktop Services.

URL Filtering of HTTPS websites and Web Security Service exemptions. Barracuda Firewalls can apply URL filtering provided by the Barracuda Web Security Service subscription to websites accessed via HTTPS. Additionally, administrators can exempt user-defined domains or IP addresses from being forwarded to the Barracuda Web Security Service for HTTP and HTTPS.

High Availability. All Barracuda Firewalls can be deployed as part of a High Availability (HA) cluster, and are designed for organizations of all sizes. The primary unit handles network traffic and security functions, while the secondary unit waits in hot standby mode to seamlessly take over in case the primary unit fails.

Pricing and Availability

Barracuda Firewall version 6.1 is available immediately at no additional charge to existing customers on the current hardware platform with an active Energize Updates subscription. The Barracuda Firewall list price starts at $999 USD for the appliance and list price of $179 USD for Energize Updates. An optional Instant Replacement service featuring priority replacement of failed hardware and complimentary refresh of four-year old hardware units is available starting at list price of $199 USD per year. International pricing and availability vary by region.
