Securing The Enterprise Edge
Guarding the gateway between enterprise systems and attackers
What Is The Problem?
The modern network no longer has a well-defined perimeter. Cloud, mobile and now IoT are punching holes in perimeter security and providers of edge devices are prime targets for attack. By compromising an edge device, hackers can open multiple enterprise targets. Edge devices like printers and routers are major targets for Massive Remote Code Execution and attract some of the fiercest attacks.
Take for example, the MFP (multi-function printer). A highly sophisticated, connected system that can print, copy, scan, email and fax over external and internal networks in an on-premise or managed service set-up. These devices have access to confidential company information and personally identifiable information and provide hackers with access to sensitive corporate assets. A compromised multi-function printer that opens a gateway for attackers is a nightmare scenario that could affect thousands of enterprises.
How Karamba Secures
Automatically building security into the connected system is the foundation of Karamba Runtime Integrity technology for the automotive world. Now, addressing the Enterprise Edge, the XGuard suite provides unparalleled self-protection against device control loss. Buffer overflows can result in foreign malicious code or code reuse (such as return-oriented programming) attacks which can be self-detected and self-blocked with Karamba XGuard.
After the attack is detected and blocked, XGuard provides a detailed report of the attack to the device manufacturer.
Automatically embedding cybersecurity into endpoints - including Enterprise Edge devices – has always been a sought-after goal, but it has been hindered by performance restrictions. Karamba’s solution allows manufacturers to automatically apply this technology to seal systems during production. Furthermore, Karamba’s solution has proven to have negligible performance impacts in the resource constrained in-vehicle environment.
Self-protection is a new paradigm in Security by Design, which aims to detect and prevent attacks in runtime. The factory settings of security policies are defined in the software build process, including the “known good” which the system needs to adhere to.
Any modification from the product’s automatically built security policy is detected as a violation that can be blocked by the device itself and reported for further investigation or other configurable auto-behavior.
Zero-Day and Day-One attack prevention. The concept of sealing the device according to its known good enables the connected device to protect itself from cyberattacks.
Deviations from the device's known goods must not be allowed. They are deterministically detected and prevented. This approach enables users to detect and prevent new attacks and does not require security updates.
What is autonomous security and how does it provide superior runtime integrity protection? In this white paper, we explain how deterministic methods harden the runtime environment to prevent system hacking.
Karamba’s XGuard features CFI, whitelisting, on-premise or cloud-based management, customizable reporting and forensics. Plus it’s easy to deploy, and supports almost any platform, build environment, and architecture.
XGuard One Pager
XGuard is OS agnostic, and compatible with a wide range of platforms out-of-the-box. The platform includes both an embedded agent and cloud-based monitoring.
