A visual introduction to the firmware attack surface of enterprise devices, this resource describes the dozens of components in modern laptops and servers that are vulnerable to firmware and hardware attacks and documents real-world threats for each category of component.
Build device security into your overall cybersecurity plan with simple steps that help you progress from basic cyber hygiene to preventing advanced persistent threats using the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) framework as a guideline.
Attacks in the wild are targeting firmware in order to achieve persistence, evade security controls, and further strategic attacks. With firmware vulnerabilities at an all-time high, this whitepaper outlines 5 questions to evaluate and improve your firmware security posture.
Explore the techniques of successful firmware attacks as they apply to stages of a kill chain in this new Eclypsium report designed to help you assess and defend enterprise devices from firmware and hardware threats.
FISMA, and the NIST documents supporting it, repeatedly underscore the importance of firmware security as part of a modern security program. Yet, this area remains one of the most overlooked and poorly understood areas of risk within government agencies. This document walks through the requirements and guidance that the law establishes in regard to firmware, and provides practical guidance and recommendations that organizations can use to not only comply with FISMA, but also to build a stronger security program.
As firmware-level threats continue to gain traction in the wild, security teams need to quickly get up to speed on how these threats work and how their devices can be targeted and attacked. In this paper we demystify the most common types of firmware threats today and analyze their path into an organization.
Attackers are increasingly targeting the largely unprotected hardware and firmware within all types of devices. Firmware vulnerabilities are common and difficult to manage, and once exploited, allow attackers to subvert traditional security and gain long-lasting persistence within a network. In this paper, we will explore the nature of the risk, why it has become a priority now, and how organizations can protect themselves today.
In today’s distributed work environment, how do you protect your remote workforce from cybersecurity threats, secure your data centers and ensure the integrity of your supply chain? Eclypsium can help. Learn how in this 3-minute video.
Take a look at how Eclypsium delivers the industry’s first enterprise-grade software platform that can detect, defend and mitigate firmware weaknesses and threats.
Security Weekly’s Paul Asadoorian talks to Eclypsium CEO Yuriy Bulygin about why firmware is the biggest gap in security today, and what to do about it. Hard drives, network cards, BIOS and other components all have their own software stacks, forming a hidden attack surface beneath the operating system layer. Update mechanisms have made firmware accessible remotely, and now attacks in the wild are tacking advantage. Nerd out with Paul and Yuriy as they explore the topic of firmware security in this 15-minute video.
A disciplined process of firmware updates is an essential element of good cybersecurity hygiene but can be challenging for many enterprises. This report provides IT and security leaders with insights into firmware update management and guidance on best practices.
Part two of Eclypsium’s series on best practices for firmware updates focuses on the tools and techniques used by the enterprise IT teams tasked with implementing update processes.
"Firmware vulnerability gives attackers entry into systems that is invisible and persistent with total control of the server, storage or network device. I&O leaders must deliver an infrastructure, whether on-site, outsourced or in the public cloud, that is protected from firmware-based attacks." Learn how in this report from Gartner Research.
Firmware- and hardware-level attacks can compromise laptops in minutes and persist undetected after reimaging. To close the firmware security gap in traveler laptop programs consider a new approach that protects IT assets in high-risk countries from firmware implants and backdoors.
As malware in the wild increasingly targets firmware for persistence, it is critical that IR and threat hunting efforts extend to the firmware as well.
The rise of bare-metal cloud service offerings brings new security challenges for customers and providers. While physical servers are dedicated to one customer at a time, they don’t stay that way forever. Vulnerabilities in a device’s firmware and weaknesses in the reclamation process open the door for firmware implants and rootkits to be passed from one customer to the next. We explore the security implications, present original research, and provide guidance on best practices.
Learn how Eclypsium helps organizations manage and secure corporate and personal laptops, bare metal and cloud servers, network and storage appliances, routers and other devices with the the only scalable enterprise device security platform that protects you from threats to devices down to the firmware and hardware level.
As remote work becomes the default, attackers are setting their sights on end user devices and the ways that users connect back to the enterprise. Learn how Eclypsium ensures the integrity and health of the devices that remotely access corporate resources over VPN and other secure remote access mechanisms.
Eclypsium is the industry’s leading enterprise firmware protection platform—providing a new layer of security to protect laptops, servers and network devices from firmware attacks. Learn how Eclypsium defends enterprises and government agencies from vulnerabilities and threats hidden within firmware that are invisible to most organizations today.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) cybersecurity framework helps organizations to better understand and improve their management of cybersecurity risk. In this brief we outline the NIST requirements that pertain to firmware security and provide guidance for organizations seeking to achieve compliance with these standards.
The Federal Information Security Management Act (FISMA) defines the information security requirements for all federal agencies and spans the fundamental pillars of information security (confidentiality, integrity, and availability). This 2-page overview explains how FISMA relates to firmware security.
Eclypsium introduces a new type of enterprise security that defends the underlying hardware and firmware layer of the enterprise.
