  • Achieving Zero Trust During Runtime Recorded: Jun 3 2021 29 mins
    Virsec
    The battleground for advanced attacks has moved into application workloads and is being fought in runtime.

    Most people think of Zero Trust in relation to access controls for users, devices, and networks. But Zero Trust at runtime goes deep into the application workloads, where the attack surface has moved. Effective Zero Trust at runtime must be application-aware, but it must also be automated, continuous, and easy to manage.

    For any given application, there are a lot of moving parts – hundreds of files, thousands of processes, and millions of memory calls that define the correct execution and control flow of application code. Managing this manually is almost impossible, and it’s challenging to try to whitelist all the acceptable files.

    Chasing every possible threat is an infinite problem and it’s a battle that we are losing. Instead, if we ensure that critical applications only do the right thing, and we prevent them from going off the rails during runtime, then we can fundamentally change the security equation.

    Virsec has developed a unique technology that is fully automated and enforced continuously as application code executes. Any deviations from acceptable execution are detected in milliseconds, and protection rules are automatically triggered to stop attacks at the earliest stage – before any damage is done.
  • Protecting Against the Next SolarWinds Attack Recorded: May 25 2021 31 mins
    Virsec
    As organizations continue to dig out from the devastating SolarWinds supply chain attack, one question remains: how do we protect ourselves from the next one? Most organizations that were hit had exemplary security measures in place, such as perimeter tools, EPP/EDR and threat hunting solutions.

    But these tools are powerless to identify and stop an evasive remote code execution (RCE) attack like that which infiltrated the SolarWinds supply chain. RCEs execute at runtime – a dangerous blind spot for most organizations. They can proliferate at the memory level and go undetected for days, months, or even years.

    Runtime attacks are the new normal and organizations are not prepared. We need new weapons to fight a new war. Unlike other security tools, Virsec stops evasive attacks at multiple points in the kill chain without prior knowledge. Learn how to protect application workloads against runtime attacks in any environment and defend against the next SolarWinds-type attack.
  • Container Workload Protection Recorded: May 20 2021 28 mins
    Virsec
    As more organizations migrate to the cloud, protecting containerized workloads is both a challenge and a risk to the business. Containers are not inherently secure and provider-based security is not enough to ensure adequate protection for workloads spanning across multiple clouds. And in production, conventional security tools merely focus on providing activity visibility, policy enforcement, reporting, and encryption.

    True container protection requires granular application control, system integrity assurance, and advanced memory protection at runtime. Virsec is the only solution to provide application-aware visibility, trusted execution, and attack prevention to protect vulnerable containerized workloads. And Gartner recognizes Virsec in a select group of Cloud Workload Protection vendors that provide advanced memory and process integrity protection.

    Learn more about the unique application-aware workload protection technology that detects and defeats any attack – known or unknown – in runtime with no signatures, no patching, no noise, and no tuning. Virsec is platform-agnostic and works seamlessly with clouds, containers, distributed and hybrid systems.
  • Keeping Ransomware out of Critical Infrastructure: Colonial Pipeline Attack Recorded: May 13 2021 33 mins
    Virsec
    Between the SolarWinds attack, MS Exchange server hack, and recent ransomware attack on Colonial Pipeline, countless organizations across nearly every industry have been laid bare, and it’s open season for ransomware threat actors. Though most companies had an enhanced cybersecurity infrastructure in place to safeguard information integrity and business continuity, the stone-cold truth is that conventional security tools did not protect organizations against either of those attacks, nor will they be able to protect against future sophisticated and evasive remote code execution exploits.

    And now that so many back doors are open, get ready for the next wave of ransomware attacks. Malicious code that executes undetected during runtime can bring the entire system down … all it takes is one click.

    The Virsec security solution detects and stops ransomware attacks at the first step in the kill chain. Learn best practices to defend your environment from ransomware attacks, as well as actionable steps you can employ today.
  • Stop the Kill Chain at the First Step: Effective Runtime Protection Recorded: May 12 2021 46 mins
    Dave Furneaux, CEO, Virsec
    Advanced attacks like SolarWinds and Hafnium are easily bypassing conventional security tools and targeting a blind spot – application runtime. Even organizations with exemplary cybersecurity infrastructure in place missed the evasive remote code execution exploits taking place within their networks. While most tools try to guess at threats at the perimeter, or look for clues after the fact, they view application workloads as a “black box.”

    Dave Furneaux, CEO of Virsec, discusses the urgent need to gain visibility and control over critical workloads as code executes. We must assume the attackers are already present in the environment. So rather than trying to stop everything ‘bad’ (which is an infinite problem), a runtime protection model focuses on making sure that code and applications only perform as they should at the web, host, and memory layers – effectively stopping the kill chain at the first step.
  • Assume the Attackers Are Already Inside – Now What? Recorded: May 11 2021 50 mins
    Virsec
    The SolarWinds attack exposed almost 20,000 of their customers. Attacks on Microsoft Exchange servers hit more than 30,000 businesses. In both cases, advanced attackers used remote code execution to open persistent back doors that will likely be exploited for years to come. We must assume that the precursors to the next data breach have bypassed perimeter defenses and are already inside our networks.

    It’s time to flip the security script and protect critical applications, workloads, and data in vulnerable environments. This requires applying a zero trust model during runtime to prevent applications from being hijacked or derailed, even when under attack.

    Join experts from Virsec for a discussion and demonstration of application-aware runtime protection, to proactively stop the next SolarWinds from becoming a data breach disaster.

  • Memory Protection: Technology Primer Recorded: May 6 2021 40 mins
    Danny Kim, Ph.D., Virsec
    Runtime memory is the foundation of most computing, yet few security technologies have any visibility or control over critical systems as they execute in memory. A few vendors talk about memory protection, but they typically look for behavioral anomalies after execution, or operate at the O/S level with no application awareness.

    Join leading memory security expert Danny Kim, Ph.D., for a primer on how memory protection should operate, and the critical need for application awareness as code executes. With over 48 patents, Virsec has unrivaled expertise in the area of memory protection and pioneered solutions that provide critical visibility and control over this new security battleground.
  • Runtime: The New Security Battleground Recorded: Apr 29 2021 39 mins
    Virsec
    Advanced attacks like SolarWinds and Hafnium are easily bypassing conventional security tools and targeting a blind spot – application runtime. While most tools try to guess at threats at the perimeter, or look for clues after the fact, they view application workloads as a “black box.”

  • Leave No Apps Behind: Protecting Legacy Applications Recorded: Apr 22 2021 42 mins
    Virsec
    From ERP to SCADA to government databases, legacy applications are a fact of life and won’t go away anytime soon. Yet far too much of our security thinking assumes that organizations can always patch, upgrade, or rip-and-replace complex legacy applications to deploy new, supposedly safer systems. There must be a better way.

    Join security experts from Virsec for a discussion on how to secure legacy applications, in any state, without depending on patching, upgrades, or significant downtime.
  • Defending Against Nation-State Attacks: Breaking the Kill Chain Recorded: Apr 15 2021 40 mins
    Virsec
    As more alarming news emerges about nation-state attacks like SolarWinds and Hafnium, many organizations are not sure how to react. Even if you keep up with security basics, like patching, access control, and network hygiene, these attacks seem to easily bypass conventional security tools.

    Join security experts from Virsec for analysis of the multi-step kill chains involved in these attacks, and new strategies to interrupt these attacks at multiple points, during runtime.

  • Supply Chain Protection: Stop Remote Code Execution During Runtime Recorded: Apr 1 2021 62 mins
    Virsec
    The SolarWinds supply chain attack was a brutal security failure that relied on perimeter tools, threat hunting and prior knowledge to stop an attack – only to find that these tools were powerless to identify and stop it.

    Existing security tools are not sufficient to secure the supply chain, namely because the most sophisticated attacks are occurring at runtime, a notorious blind spot in organizations. Conventional security tools are not instrumented to detect exploits in memory and do not provide any visibility into runtime. More importantly, they do not provide runtime protection, so evasive attacks that proliferate at the memory level often go undetected for days, months, or even years.

    Virsec joins the esteemed SANS Institute to share effective new tactics and tools to protect and defend against sophisticated and evasive supply chain attacks like remote code execution and other crippling runtime exploits.

    Watch a live demonstration of the technology that stops runtime exploits in its tracks, learn how to identify and prevent these attacks in your own infrastructure, and get best practices to protect your workloads against future or ongoing supply chain attacks.
  • Memory Protection Demo Recorded: Mar 25 2021 32 mins
    Virsec
    Protecting applications during runtime at the memory level has long been considered difficult to impossible. John Chambers, former CEO of Cisco, recently proclaimed that we are at the inflection point for the next paradigm shift in cybersecurity; the battleground has moved to the workloads, and the only way to effectively defend them is by ensuring application-aware protection at runtime.

    Traditional and legacy solutions are not enough to protect organizations from the extremely advanced attacks we are seeing today. Organizations will need to implement application-aware security controls in on-premises, cloud, hybrid, and / or container environments to effectively defend against sophisticated and evasive attacks and exploits.

    Mark Pelkoski, Senior Director of Security Architecture at Virsec, steps us through a real-time demonstration of Virsec’s unique ability to detect and stop memory-based attacks during runtime before damage is done.
