Rebyc Security Rolls Out Cyber Security Services to Help Companies Proactively Address New and Growing Insecurities in Remote Working
The services – designed to identify network gaps and weaknesses before cyber attackers do – will help companies reduce revenue and data losses, business disruptions, and damages to employee and brand reputations.
Rebyc Security offers these services to chief information security officers and information security officers employed by banks and credit unions as well as healthcare and insurance companies.
“The pandemic has created many new ways for cyber attackers to steal revenues and sensitive corporate and employee data by attacking the highly vulnerable networks and technologies used by remote workers,” said Patrick Barry, Rebyc Security’s chief information officer. “These new services help address a broad range of unprecedented and unusual circumstances caused by the pandemic in a proactive, methodical way.”
More virtual private network (VPN) equipment vulnerable to attacks
These profound work changes have created several rushed and disorganized remote working network arrangements and a whole new set of potential insecurities that cyber attackers can exploit.
To better understand VPN usage trends, Rebyc Security recently conducted a survey of industry professionals. Eighty-five percent of respondents said they have implemented multi-factor authentication for VPN accounts. And 78 percent said VPN appliance is part of their normal security and penetration testing efforts.
For example, remote workers are using more virtual private network (VPN) equipment and services to connect to their corporate networks. As a result, cyber attackers have more ways to succeed in penetrating and disrupting corporate networks. One of these new services will test for security weaknesses in the VPN equipment installed within corporate offices and attempt to penetrate them.
