Europe Facing Cyber Terror Turning Point

Today’s network-dependent organizations face an array of cyber threats. Information and its critical role manifest in many ways and formats, and are subject to countless outlets for distribution and sharing.  
 
An ever-growing mixture arises among traditional cyber-crime, economic and military espionage, and the shadowy concepts of cyber network discord. While modern organizations wait to assess the use of innovative technologies, cyber criminals are using technological innovation to their advantage. They exploit the gap between how quickly they can profit from vulnerabilities and the speed at which organizations deploy advanced technologies to counter the threat.
 
European government agencies and not-for-profit organisations have also become prime targets due to the valuable data they store. Unlike financially oriented cybercrimes that are frequently carried out by the organized criminal underworld in the private sector, nation state attackers seek to steal information such as military or trade secrets that could have a direct impact on national interests.
 
Cyberwarfare Ramps up Across Europe

Europe’s cyber threat landscape is undergoing dramatic change. A major trend is the evolution of cyber risk from digital to physical assets. While the loss of personal financial and health records is disturbing, the spectre of cyberattacks against critical infrastructure is the new reality across Europe.
 
A range of recent cyber threats to the UK have come from nation state-based hackers that act upon their country's’ behalf, to disrupt essential services or to attack critical infrastructure. Criminals from across the globe have also been targeting the UK with crimes that target the integrity of computer networks.

Cyber-Attack Protection

Even though the UK recently opened the National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC), with role to protect critical services from cyber-attacks and manage major incidents and improve the underlying security of the UK internet, UK private and public sector organizations still need to operate in heightened cyber threat environment, on the presumption that they have been breached and take the necessary measures to augment their defences with the ability to find where compromise has occurred. The faster network security organizations can locate malicious actors on the network, the better chance organizations have at limiting their risks and associated losses. This may well be easier said than done. After the point of initial compromise, attackers may wait patiently for weeks and months operating “low and slow” to move further about the network in search of valuable data. The malicious actors may steal credentials; escalate their privileges on key servers; and ultimately, exfiltrate data by sending it out of the network to collection points throughout the Internet.

Dynamic Network Visibility Foundation of Cyber-Attack Detection and Remediation
 
The major challenge identifying malware and anomalous activity inside networks is effective visibility across the entire network and all the critical traffic flows within. Since attackers can use every network segment and over potentially long periods of time, effective visibility means continuous access to the vast amounts of traffic flows and metadata across every corner of the network.
 
Niagara Networks delivers just that. It starts with Niagara’s N2 Packet Broker and the ability to aggregate traffic flows via a family of high-density network taps and nodes that can then deliver copies of that traffic to network security devices.
 
Niagara Networks N2 Packet Broker series provide a scalable solution that ensures network visibility into 1/10/40/100Gb Critical Network links and can provide access to the appropriate network traffic for identification of opportunistic infections, risky behaviour and insider attacks, and advanced or targeted attacks.
 
The Network Tap ports of the Niagara N2 connect to each side of one or multiple bi-directional network links and transparently pass network traffic while ensuring network uptime in case of any power failure, link loss or software crash via fail-to-wire protection. The Packet Broker ports provide the ability to load balance, aggregate, filter and/or mirror the tapped network traffic to one or multiple in-line security solutions.
