Supply chain attacks have become a major concern for organizations around the world. These attacks involve hackers targeting a company's supply chain in order to gain access to their systems and data. Recently, a trojanized installer (Comm100 Chat Installer) by the Canadian company Comm100 Network Corporation was discovered, which affected a number of organizations globally.
In the case of the trojanized Comm100 Chat Installer, Peerscope would have been able to detect the malicious communication before it was able to spread throughout the network. By continuously monitoring and analyzing network traffic, Peerscope is able to identify patterns and anomalies that may indicate the presence of a supply chain attack. It can also detect and block any attempts to exfiltrate data from the network, further protecting the organization from the consequences of a supply chain attack.
One of the key features of Forelens solution is its ability to maintain an allowlist of the domains that Comm1000 applications are permitted to connect to. This means that if Comm1000 is compromised and one of its applications becomes trojanized, Forelens will be able to detect any communication with a domain that the Comm1000 applications are not vetted to communicate with. This is a crucial aspect of Forelens's ability to detect supply chain attacks early on, before they can spread further. By monitoring the communication between Comm1000 applications and external domains, Forelens is able to quickly alert on any potential threats and take action to prevent them from causing further damage. This is an important line of defense against supply chain attacks, which can be devastating if left unchecked.
Overall, Forelens solution is an invaluable tool for organizations looking to protect themselves against supply chain attacks and other types of cyber threats. By continuously monitoring and analyzing network traffic and using an allowlist database to identify and block suspicious activity, it is able to provide a high level of protection for organizations.
