An “easy button” for blast radius identification and threat remediation

by Chiara Regale

When your organization is inevitably hit by a cyberattack, you want your security operations engineers to move lightning fast to identify the scope, duration, and impact of the attack, contain the disruption and prevent any costly or lasting damage. To do that, they need access to actionable information about everything that’s in your network — where devices are located, how they interact, and all the relevant details about their configuration and state.

Insight for Security Engineers

Security teams need this insight so they can isolate devices and cut off all possible pathways that attackers might travel to reach your critical assets. But do your teams have that insight at their fingertips? Or is it trapped in spreadsheets, bogged down by other time-consuming, manual processes, or simply, impossible to get to? If it’s the latter, you’re allowing attackers to have the upper hand.

Now, imagine if your security operations pros had an “easy button” they could hit whenever attackers strike, which would allow them to contain and remediate cyber threats ultra-fast? Even better, what if they could use that easy button to help ensure hosts aren’t vulnerable to attack in the first place?

No need to wonder, “What if?” This easy button exists. It’s the blast radius identification and isolation feature we recently added to the Forward Enterprise platform.

Blast Radius Identification in a Single Click

The blast radius feature uses data about your network that our platform already collects. Blast radius enables security teams — with a single mouse click — to identify the full reach of a compromised host and then isolate exposed devices swiftly.

Many of our customers had told us their security teams could benefit from having access to the same searchable, actionable information about their network topology and behavior that their network engineers use every day. That feedback inspired us to develop and deliver this brand-new feature to help security teams be even more effective in their work to protect the enterprise — especially during a crisis.

Bring a Healthy Dose of Skepticism ….. Please

We are asked to purchase something 4,000 times every day; that’s roughly once every 13 seconds during our waking hours. These “requests to purchase'' often come in the form of marketing messages that test the bounds of credibility. In the software industry, most of us have trained ourselves to question vendor promises vociferously. And vendors […]
