Unless you’re under a rock, you know that the WannaCry Ransomware cyberattack swept worldwide headlines last week.
Organizations scrambled to apply the latest Microsoft security patch to their computers to prevent the spread of the attack. It’s estimated that the ransomware attack hit more than 300,000 victims in 150 countries.
Immediate Insight can send email alerts based on any collected data and search criteria. Before configuring an email alert, you must setup outbound email server settings in Immediate Insight (this is accomplished via the CLI). Here is the information:
The server settings for sending email are specified in the marshal configuration file: app/config/marshal-settings.conf
You can edit this file with a text editor ( vi app/config/marshal-settings.conf ).
Add the following lines (except with the proper values for your email environment):
# maximum number of email alerts per address per hour (default is 3)
mail.maxPerHour = 3
# mail alert settings (account to send through)
mail.username = email@example.com
mail.password = test
mail.host = smtp.gmail.com
mail.port = 587
mail.subject = New Alert
After saving the changes, type ‘reload server’ at the command line to restart and make the changes take effect. Note that the default maximum setting is 3 messages per hour. You can boost this to a larger number as needed.
Once the above has been done, you can configure Email Alerts in Immediate Insight via the Action feature - one example of doing this is shown below. (Further examples are available in the Data Management Guide.)
You see a type of Search Event you'd like to be alerted on in future -> click the Action link.
Then choose to email similar events to a technical support list email alias (you can tune the specificity of alerts).
So you’ve purchased a new firewall. Now what?
You’ve got to decide which access is allowed, which isn’t allowed and whether or not rules are compliant with internal and regulatory standards.
Things are running along smoothly and then the dreaded “change.” A user submits a new access request and the fun begins. Is this access necessary? Safe? Compliant? And what happens when it’s time to retire unused rules?
How Effective Security Management Can Help Teams Cover the Exponentially Increasing Gap between Technology & the Resources Available to Manage It
Security teams today are under tremendous pressure due to the rising frequency and impact of breaches and a business that wants to move faster and faster. The answer to both of these challenges has always been to add more technology and staff resources.
However, each new technology added creates complexity. More rules are created and more data is generated. As networks continue to evolve, this complexity will only grow. And while staff resources may increase, they will never match the exponential growth of technology.
FireMon calls this phenomenon The Complexity Gap and has set out to help security teams close it.
Join us for this webinar with Frost & Sullivan where we’ll explore the causes of “The Gap” and how workforce multipliers such as intelligence and automation help staff manage their security more efficiently and more effectively.
Helping Enterprise Security Teams Improve Resource Efficiency & Reduce Overall Risk Exposure
Firewall technology has come a long way since its initial, most rudimentary forms. Next-Generation Firewalls (NGFW) are the latest development, and organizations are accelerating adoption to the new technology. But NGFWs aren’t a fix-all solution.
