An average of 51 network device misconfigurations were discovered in the last two years with 4% deemed to be critical vulnerabilities that could take down the network within the U.S. Federal Government according to latest research.
Configurations of U.S. Government routers, switches, and firewalls are changing on a daily basis as Government networks transform. Critical threats are exploiting those network configuration changes in order to gain access to sensitive systems and data.
Titania wanted to understand more about how the U.S. Federal Government is currently managing the critical risks associated with misconfigured network devices – namely firewalls, switches and routers.
We commissioned independent B2B research specialists, Coleman Parkes, to investigate by surveying senior cybersecurity decision-makers across the US Federal Government, as well as other US critical national infrastructure sectors (military, oil & gas, telecoms, and financial services), for comparison purposes.
To see the results, fill in the form.
of respondents said an inability to prioritize remediation based on risk is a top challenge.
of respondents agreed that their agency relies on compliance to deliver security.
of respondents reported having detected at least one critical configuration issue in the last two years.
Continuous Monitoring is Essential
detection and response
Nipper Enterprise accurately assesses the security risk and compliance posture of up to 300,000 firewalls, routers and switches on an up to hourly basis, prioritizing findings based on the ease of exploitation and network impact of the misconfigurations detected.
The solution connects directly to network devices to access the configuration file (for continuous monitoring) or ingests previously extracted configuration (for compliance snapshots). Risk findings are produced in a variety of formats, including JSON and syslog, enabling integration with existing SIEM, SOAR and ITSM SOC and NOC solutions.
New report reveals U.S. Federal Government exposed to significant cybersecurity risks due to exploitable network misconfigurations. Read the latest press release from Titania.
With continuous misconfiguration detection and response it accurately assesses the security risk posture of up to 300,000 firewalls, routers and switches on an up-to-hourly basis.
