OC Computer Consultant Cisco ASA 5500`

This is a review on the new Cisco ASA 5500.

The Cisco ASA or Adaptive security appliance can use different modules for different security needs.
There are currently four unique modules. They include the firewall module, IPS which is a intrusion protection system. Anti-x module and a VPN (virtual private network) module.

The benefits of this appliance is that modules can be added as your needs grow. All in one device.
There is a business edition provides small to medium businesses with VPN and gateway capabilities.
The firewall module can be implemented to stop corporate users from abusing instant messaging, the
introduction of Spyware and Adware onto the corporate network.It will also protect against external
threats suck as hackers or crackers. Policies can also be set up to block peer to peer file sharing.

The Cisco ASA 5500 can also provide VPN access for remote users. The SSL (Secure Sockets Layer) and
also IPSec protocols can be used to encrypt traffic. Different forms of authentication can be used such as Kerbeos, Microsoft Active directory, LDAP lightweight directory protocol and RSA secure ID.

Everything can be controlled through the Cisco Security Manager, a all in one management platform. I watched a video on this at Cisco's website. I like the interface, you can even see attacks in real time and decide to section off that part of the network. Thats pretty slick. Another way to do this is through MARS, which is Cisco's analysis tool.

There are different modules for different needs Some firewalls can support up to 1.2Gbps.

The Anti-X technology is based on Trend Micros technology to stop threats like viruses, spyware, trojans and worms.

Computer Consultant Orange County: Defense in Depth

Today in business protecting your information is essential. IT managers should be practicing defense in dept to secure their systems.

What is defense in depth? It is using multiple layers of security systems to protect or stop a attack. There are criminals, hackers, organized crime groups, employees and foreign countries trying to access or destroy data. There are many reasons why people do this. It could be used for identity theft, they can threaten to bring down a companies website. They might want to take over your servers to launch denial of service attacks. Foreign countries, terrorists and competition might want trade secrets, or information on military information.

There are many tools attackers have ready to use. How do they get to this information? There are many vulnerabilities they can implement. Here are a few: Rootkits, Remote exploits, buffer overflows, sniffing, session hijacking, social engineering, viruses, trojans, and key stroke loggers.

There are many tools that companies and individuals can use to help mitigate these risks. Intrusion detection and prevention systems can help stop and inform you that there is a possible attack happening. Firewalls and anti virus gateways can help to try to stop attacks and protect against viruses. The firewall must be checked for correct rule sets.Services not in use should have their ports blocked or turned off entirely. Denial of service defense software can be installed to help drop packets before they crash your systems. Your firewall can be configured to do the same.

Hosts in your network should be protected with anti-virus software, spyware removal tools, and personal firewalls.
If your data is really valuable consider hiring an outside firm to do penetration testing and application security testing.
Software updates should be installed frequently on a test server first and then put on your production servers.

Users on the network should be authenticated with a user name and password. The password should be difficult to guess and be alph numeric contain both upper case and lowercase. Passwords should be changed on a regular basis. To protect information on your computers encryption should be utilized with encryption protocols such as DES, 3DES or AES. If you use remote access do not use Telnet Make sure that you are using SSH, or SSL with IPsec.

Users should be educated about possible security risks and trained on the companies security policy. System administrators should be backing up daily and checking their logs for suspicious activity.

Internet Host and Network Enumeration

An attackers can gain use full information about a target organization by querying:

Domain and IP Registers.
Whois databases.
Web and Newsgroup search engines.

With this information a attacker can create a map of your network and look for vulnerabilities. Telephone numbers can be used to scan blocks of phone numbers looking for modems.

Netcraft can be used to identify and fingerprint web servers. Technical contacts, phone numbers and emails can be found using the whois command.

Webserver crawling can be used to mirror the organizations webserver. Some tools include GNU Wget and Black Widow.

Sophos aquires Astaro

Sophos Ltd. today made a move into the network security space by announcing its intention to acquire Astaro GmbH & Co. KG. Traditionally an endpoint protection company, Sophos has branched out, via acquisitions during the past five years to offer a deeper portfolio of products that includes encryption, application control, data protection and network access control. Terms of the deal were not announced.

The security landscape is getting nastier too, and smaller companies realize having basic protection or none at all doesn’t cut it.

Arabella Hallawell, vice president of corporate strategy, Sophos Ltd.

Astaro specializes in network security hardware, software and virtual appliances for SMBs and midmarket organizations. Its Astaro Security Gateway products serve small shops of 10 or fewer employees, all the way up to 5,000, and provide integrated network security offerings including VPN, firewall and intrusion prevention technology.

Unified threat management, Astaro’s primary business, is attractive to the midmarket because of its form factor, ease of management and relative costs compared to buying individual best-of-breed products. IDC puts the UTM market at $2 billion worldwide for 2010.

According to a Sophos press release, Astaro did $56 million worth of business last year and had 30% year-over-year growth, making it the fourth largest UTM vendor. Astaro has more than 200 employees, and is based in Karlsruhe, Germany, and Wilmington, MA.

More on Sophos:
Sophos integrates encryption into endpoint, email security:
Sophos Endpoint Security and Data Protection is the first software to integrate encryption from its acquisition of Utimaco in 2008.
Sophos sells majority stake to private equity group:
Apax Partners, a private equity investment firm, buys a majority interest in computer security vendor Sophos. Sophos is valued at $830 million in the transaction.
Strategically, the acquisition gives Sophos visibility into endpoint and network activity, data that can be centrally managed and reported. Sophos sees an opportunity to close a market and portfolio gap with the acquisition by eventually integrating Web and application security controls with network security, according to vice president of corporate strategy Arabella Hallawell. She said there currently is no coordination between endpoint and network security that provides visibility for respective admins and analysts into what’s happening on either platform.

Astaro’s Security Gateway products are its principal offering. Its three form factors, including a virtual appliance, combine firewall, IPS, denial-of-service protection and remote office connectivity via IPsec- and SSL-based VPNs. Astaro also offers log management and mail archiving, as well as a management console.

“If you look at some current IT trends, there are many more distributed worksites, especially the rate SMBs are adding remote sites is increasing quickly,” Hallawell said. “It becomes untenable to add more devices and locations. The security landscape is getting nastier too, and smaller companies realize having basic protection or none at all doesn’t cut it. We looked closely at this area and it became clear there was unmet need for better integrated security that includes Web and application security controls and policy controls.”

In the short term, expect to see Sophos incorporate its threat prevention technology, including real-time lookups on malicious websites into the Astaro gateways. In addition, some initial coordination between the two product lines could include some policy setting and reporting for events on the Astaro line integrated with Web filtering and malicious site detection and enforcement on the Sophos endpoint.

I often get asked by clients "Why would a hacker attack my computer?". Hackers do not necessarily care about what you store on your computer. They can use your computer and turn it into a zombie to attack other computers. They can use your computer to store stolen information. They can store their tools on your computer. I have read stories of attackers putting child porn on a victims computer! The worst part is that they then called the authorities and told them that the person was a pedophile and should check his computer. Can you imagine that being published in the newspaper?

Orange County Computer Security | Orange County Computer Consultant

Orange County Computer Consultant follows a security methodology for testing your security.
Orange County Computer Security helps secure small business servers and networks in the Orange County area.

The first step we do is gather information. We want to know your IP address ranges, employee names, DNS information, emails. We look on wesbites such as Facebook, we look on forums, job boards. We look at your company from a attackers view. We use the same tools attackers use to test your defenses.

Target Discovery. At this stage we check to see what type of operating systems you are running. How is the network setup? What type of applications are you running? What versions? This is also known as operating system fingerprinting. Once we have this information we will see if you are vulnerable.

Enumerating the target- We will check to see what ports are open. We use various scanning techniques to avoid intrusion detection systems or bypass your firewalls. We see what applications are listening and check to see if they are exploitable.

At this point we can attempt to gain access to your system. We require written permission for all of the following testing. Give us a call today if you are concerned about the security of your network.

Orange County Computer Security

Do you currently have internal documents on your servers that can be accesses through Google? Attackers can use Google to search your web servers for documents. I can currently pull back thousands of internal documents online!

Attackers use social networks like Facebook, Linkedin and Myspace to gain data about employees at companies. Information on these sites include birthdays, interests and even schools that you graduated from. Attackers can use this information to guess passwords. Some sites even ask this information for password resets.

What websites are your employees browsing at work? Have you heard of XSS? This stands for Cross Site scripting. It basically tricks your employees in thinking that they are on a trusted website. In the background the code is grabbing information off your desktop. It can also be used to trick the user into entering their password information on a website that looks like Bank Of America.

Orange County Computer Consultant can test the security of your network.

Why Use Small Business Internet Security Software?

Today, few businesses have the option of not having their computers connected to the rest of the world via the internet. Small business owners often think that large enterprises are more vulnerable to attack by hackers interested in stealing priceless information. In reality, small and medium size businesses are often more desirable targets simply because they don’t have the elaborate network protection protocols that are typically employed by major corporations.

Business owners and IT professionals must be proactive in preventing threats that can compromise the information heart of a business. Here are some of the prevalent threats to your priceless information:

Malware – Short for malicious software, includes any software that is intended to cause problems. It includes viruses, spyware, worms and Trojan Horses.

Viruses – Computer viruses can copy themselves and infect your computer when you least expect it. In the days before widespread network and internet use, viruses were generally spread by removable media like floppy disks. Now, every connection, intranet or internet is another potential vector for a virus.

Viruses can simply be a nuisance causing inconveniences but the worst of them can destroy or corrupt your data or cause damage to your computer system. A common characteristic of viruses that differentiates it from other malware is that it must attach itself to existing programming.

Spyware – Spyware is a type of malware that is specifically designed to access private information illegitimately. Spyware is one of the most dangerous weapons in the identity thief's arsenal.

Worms – Another sort of self-replicating malware, worms differ from viruses in that they don’t have to attach themselves to other programs. Worms seek to copy themselves and proliferate whether through local or wide area networks. At minimum, they do damage to your computer assets by consuming bandwidth. At their worst, they destroy or corrupt data.

Trojan Horses – A Trojan Horse is software that appears to perform a valuable task when in fact it is hiding its true malicious identity. That very deception in the prime danger of Trojans: people frequently download a program, even as harmless seeming as a game, and unwittingly invite the malware to do its worst. Trojans can give the hacker access to the infected computer allowing for the theft of files or even control the computer and legitimate users screen image.

To help prevent these dangerous threats, we recommend BitDefender Business Security, Kaspersky Enterprise Space Security and G Data ClientSecurity Enterprise.

What to Look for in a Small Business Internet Security Software Suite

Just as there are many dangers lurking around the online world, a small business internet security suite offers several layers of protection to keep hackers out of your computers and your data, the lifeblood of any business, safe. Generally categorized, these are the critical protection features of a comprehensive Small Business Internet Security Suite:

Firewall
Firewalls are designed to block unauthorized access to a computer system while allowing authorized user and programs to access the internet or other parts of a network. The essential role of a firewall is to distinguish between authorized use and unauthorized, potentially malicious users and programs. Just as a firewall can prevent unauthorized outside users from accessing your systems, they can also be used to prevent authorized users from accessing prohibited web sites.

Antivirus protection
If a virus happens to penetrate the first level of defense, Virus detection programs are designed to detect them and prevent them from operating and causing damage. Though an effective virus scan program can often detect a virus at introduction, a backup feature of antivirus software is to detect and remove or disable a virus after it has been implemented.

Antispyware
Similar to antivirus software, antispyware programming aims to detect spyware at introduction and prevent its installation. Barring that, routine scanning with an antispyware program should find spyware that has slipped through and remove it.

Security software
There are several additional features that are components of many Small Business Internet Security Software Suites. One of the most useful is the blocking of spam email. At minimum, spam wastes your time by imposing the task of deleting from your inbox. Phishing is a sort of spam specifically designed to trick users out of personal information. Phishing attempts are becoming ever more sophisticated and there are few frequent computer users who haven’t at least been tempted to a provide information based on a clever scam. Most Small Business Internet Security Software has an email scanning feature which does a good job of detecting and blocking spam email and phishing attempts.

Kaspersky Business Space Security

Kaspersky Business Space Security is more than adequately equipped to protect your important business resources from modern threats, including spyware, hackers, spam, viruses, and even rootkits. With comprehensive control over all incoming and outgoing data, Kaspersky can easily monitor and defend each PC in the company.

Kaspersky Business Space Security also takes advantage of heuristic detection technology to proactively protect your resources from unknown threats. The Proactive defense analyzes file behavior to detect, deter, and defend from malicious files that aren’t recognized (yet) by virus signatures.

Speaking of virus signature, the Kaspersky antivirus kernel and supporting signatures are constantly being updated to provide the most up-to-date protection. Updates are automatically delivered to your central management system, where they can be immediately deployed to the entire network. Updates are performed incrementally so they don’t take as long.

The Kaspersky Virus scanner has displayed proven effectiveness throughout the years, earning certifications from ICSA Labs, West Coast Labs, and Virus Bulletin 100%.

10 Make or Break Questions to Ask Your Cloud Computing Vendor

by Renee Bergeron

There’s no doubt that high energy and excitement surround the promise of cloud computing. As a transformational technology, cloud computing is a catalyst for change within the IT landscape because it helps companies of all sizes more efficiently use their hardware and software investments, while also fostering innovation. Subscription-based cloud platforms can save business owners money on initial IT outlays, enabling them to reinvest in improving customer service. It can be an all around win-win. Still, the cloud is not without its perils, potholes and pitfalls. As a customer considering the cloud, your first priority is to focus on finding the right solution to meet your business needs.

Because many vendors look good on paper, you’ll want to cover the most important selection criteria to minimize your risks and increase your comfort level. How do you know which cloud vendor will match its headlines? Ask the following 10 make-or-break questions before you sign on the dotted line:

1. The Basics: Right out of the gate, you’ll want to learn as much as you can about the cloud vendor. Determine if they’re operating out of their basement or if they have the kind of credibility that can only be gained from experience and success. If your chosen cloud vendor waffles when you ask detailed questions about their 24×7 support service, their industry, the advantages of their solution or the difference between a tier 3 or tier 4 datacenter, then you might want to simply walk away from a nightmare ready to happen.

2. Security and Availability: Learn about how they deal with and monitor security issues, install patches and perform maintenance updates. Does it match your company’s expected level of security or service? Ask where they host data and if it’s a shared or a dedicated environment, and find out how many servers they have and if those servers are set in a cluster. It’s also critical to know if the infrastructure is mirrored and 100 percent redundant. While you’re at it, investigate their disaster recovery processes and determine if they operate out of a Tier 1 or Tier 4 data center.

3. Migration Services: Migration can be a nightmare. Make sure your cloud vendor has a dedicated, allocated resource for migration and a proven track record of migrating similar IT solutions to the cloud. Ask if their migration processes are automated or done manually. Ask for a commitment from the vendor on the migration ETC (estimated time of completion). Finally, find out if you can perform and manage the whole process from an intuitive, easy-to-use control panel.

4. Integration: This is a deal breaker. Be sure to ask how their solution integrates with your current IT environment and other solutions. What’s their track record and game plan when it comes to integrating with other, on-premise solutions you already have installed? If halfway down the road they realize it does not integrate, what is their contingency plan and what kind of guarantees are they willing to offer?

5. Support Professionals: You can never ask too many questions about support. For example, you’ll want to know how many support agents your cloud vendor deploys and if they are Level 1, 2 or 3 in terms of training, certification and capability. Also, find out about your vendor’s escalation process if a problem arises. Learn as much as you can about the location of the vendor’s support center, whether it’s housed offshore, available 24x7x365, and other pertinent criteria.

6. Uptime Metrics and Reports: Find out how your vendor measures uptime and how that’s communicated to clients, such as what part of the hosting infrastructure (hosting, server reliability, service delivery, etc.) the uptime calculation takes into account. Ask about processes in place for handling major outages: do they have a SWOT team in place, how do they typically communicate with the client (phone, email, RSS Feed, Twitter, SMS), and at what speed and with what level of details. Determine if they are proactive or proactively reactive when a problem occurs.

7. Assess the Vendor’s Sales Process: Does the rep take the time to understand your company’s needs or is he or she just selling for sales’ sake? If the rep spends time to assess your business requirements, it’s likely that same attitude permeates the entire company. Industry studies show that many applications sold out of the box fail to meet the customer’s requirements because they’re not customized to the client’s needs. Make sure that the vendor pays attention to what you need and not just what they want to sell. Finally, after-sale support can tell you a lot about the seriousness, professional nature and quality of the internal processes of an organization.

8. How is Pricing Set Up?: Obviously, pricing is an important question to ask. You’ll want to learn about the vendor’s billing and pricing structure. Most set up billing as a recurring, monthly item, but it’s always good to do your homework. Are you being asked to sign a contract, or does your deal automatically renew, as with an evergreen agreement? If the vendor’s price is unusually low compared to others, it should raise a red flag. Find out why. Can you cancel at any time without hidden fees? Do you have a minimum of users required in order to get the most attractive price?

9. Multiple Services: With the cloud, it’s particularly important to pick a vendor with a large breadth of offerings because the likelihood is that, at some point, you might want to consolidate all of your IT under one hood. Find out if your cloud vendor is capable of something like that.

10. Ask for References: There’s comfort in knowing you’re not their first customer, and seeing their successes lined up on the wall will bring you added confidence in your decision. Ask for examples of real-world success and ROI measurements. Better yet, try to get outside confirmation of their success such as industry recognition, peer reviews and awards.

By thoroughly covering this ground, you’re most likely to find not only the right cloud vendor, but also the best solutions for your company and your clients.

Orange County Network Penetration Testing

Penetration Testing

What is penetration testing? Penetration testing is a method to test the security of a computer or a network for security risks. Penetration testers use the same tools that crackers use. Some examples of tools used are Nessus, Nmap, and Metasploit.

There are two types of penetration testing. Whitebox and Blackbox testing. Blackbox testing is when the penetration tester knows nothing about the infrastructure of the company. The penetration tested is approaching the test from the mind of the attacker. With whitebox testing the company provides information about the companies IP addresses, Operating Systems ran and even source code. This allows to test the companies infrastructure from a inside point of view. This information can be gathered by a disgruntled employee.

There are industry standard documents to help assist with the testing. The Open Source Security Testing Methodology manual provides step by step instructions on how to perform a effective penetration test. The OSTMM test data controls, personnel security awareness, fraud and social engineering, telecommunications and physical security.

Becoming a penetration tester can be a rewarding career many schools offer Ethical Hacker training that will teach you how to become a professional penetration tester. SANS offers GIAC or Global Information Assurance certification. There is the GPEN which is a certified penetration tester and GWAPT which is a certified web application tester. CISSP is highly sought after. This is the certified information system security proffessional.

To learn about penetration testing tools I recommend downloading BackTrack which is a open source pen testing Linux distribution. BackTrack comes with all the tools to conduct a pen test. It comes with Nmap, Nessus and and Metasploit.

The first step in conducting a pen test is to gather information. What type of servers is the company running? Where are the servers located? What is the IP range of the target? I recommend using Google to find out information about the target company. Newsgroups are great to find out what type of operating systems they are running. Job Boards also provide a wealth of information. What are they looking for in a system administrator? I would also use dig and nslookup to find out about the ip addresses of the company. Techncial contacts can also be listed with the DNS information.

Once you have some ip addresses you can fire up Nmap. Nmap is a free open source port scanning tool. There are several different scans that you can do with nmap. I recommend doing stealth scans. Remember that when scanning you will be setting of alerts on the companies side. Intrusion detection systems are used to prevent and mitigate these scans. Nmap will provide a list of interesting ports that are open. At this point we can see what services the host is running. We want to attempt banner grabbing or finding out the exact application version that the host is running. We can then use Google to search for vulnerabilites or exploits.

Nessus is a tool that is used to automate security scanning. This tool makes your job as a penetration tester less work intensive. Nessus is open source. However to obtain the latest vulnerabilties a professional feed is required there is a cost associated with this. To become a professional penetration tester I recommend using some commercial versions of products to get the latest updates. You will be providing a better service to your clients.Nessus also has reporting feautures. This is vital because you need to show your clients the security holes.

Metasploit can be used to gain access to your targets systems. In a penetration test seek written approval before any testing is conducted. NeXpose community edition is good for individual consultants or penetration testers. Metasploit can be used to run exploits against the target hosts. Depending on the exploit you can get root access, get a reverse shell or do other malicious acts. Metasploit comes with several exploits built in.

I recommend setting up a hacker lab. This is a great way to learn. I would get a computer that can run virtual machines. This way you can have multiple operating systems to run attacks against. Download versions of operating systems that have known security holes and hack them on your computer at home. I would download BackTrack and read the OSTMM. There are several books out there that can help you with you penetration testing career.
