Beware of vulnerabilities
Web applications are a frequent target of hacking attempts. In addition to payment information at e-commerce sites, any unprotected web application can be an easy point of entry. Externally-facing web applications are at high risk of attacks such as cross-site scripting, SQL injection, and denial of service (DoS).
Organizations that falsely believe they are protected by perimeter network defenses leave internal web applications ripe for compromise if an attacker gains access to the network. Even companies with in-house IT staff can be vulnerable if the IT group misses a Patch Tuesday or delays applying a new security fix. Even if you diligently apply every patch and have expert IT staff to protect your systems, a zero-day attack can leave you defenseless and in a position to respond only after the attack has occurred.
What can you expect from a provider of web security solutions?
Your MSSP should have solutions that adequately protect your organization from the latest types of malware (viruses, adware, and spyware), and also have a plan for remediation in the event of an attack. Typically, the first line of defense put in place will be antivirus software.
Additionally, solutions that have the ability to look into network traffic at a much more in-depth level and go well beyond the traditional identification of malware signatures will also be implemented. These new solutions have advanced algorithms that look at the behavior of communications and the data within these communications. They answer a fundamental question: Is the behavior of this communication or data indicative of normal business operations or malware? Using these advanced solutions, you can extend your security coverage significantly, adding another ring to your protection zone.
