Cybersecurity Pioneer Cyemptive Technologies Cautions Entities About the Depth and Breadth of the Recent SolarWinds Cyber Incident; Provides First Reliable Solution to Address Such Invasive Attacks
Cyemptive Technologies, Inc., a provider of preemptive cybersecurity products and technology and winner of the Department of Homeland Security's national competition for most innovative border security-related solution in the market, today cautioned entities about the ongoing scale and breadth of the recent SolarWinds (News - Alert) cyber incident, announcing that it provides the first reliable solution to address such invasive attacks by providing actual preemptive cyber breach prevention.
Austin, Texas-based SolarWinds sells Orion software that provides monitoring and management of an organization's computer networks. Hackers inserted malicious code into Orion software and around 18,000 SolarWinds customers installed the tainted update onto their systems, the company said. The compromised update has had a sweeping impact, the scale of which keeps growing as new information emerges.
"The continuously increasing level and sophistication of cyber breaches demonstrated by the SolarWinds incident indicates that even companies at the highest level have serious cyber problems, even when deploying existing AI and behavioral detection technologies," said author, speaker and ethical hacker Brian Seeley, Cyemptive's Senior Security Architect. "In spite of these efforts, the scale of the attacks continues to expand. For instance, the FBI's Internet Crime Complaint Center has reported an over 300% increase in the number of complaints per day during 2020 compared to pre COVID-19 reporting."
"The question being asked is how are these breaches occurring in a supposedly cyber protected environment, but more importantly, how can we stop it?" said Rob Pike, CEO and founder of Cyemptive. "You need to ask yourself: 'Do I believe my current level of cyber protection is truly keeping me secure?"
