Defend Against Infrastructure Attacks with HPE Servers

Posted in Articles on 05/6/2019

Securing your business has never been more challenging. Reports show there are 720 million hack attempts every 24 hours worldwide. It takes the average business 101 days to detect malicious code and companies lose $9M, on average, each year due to cybercrime. As hackers become more proficient and better resourced, attacks are going beyond the OS and app level to the firmware layer. The reality is that as a security professional, you need to be right 100% of the time; as a hacker, you only need to be right once.

It's important to take a comprehensive approach to security, beyond software protection, that spans the infrastructure lifecycle to protect your business against maturing. Today, most businesses focus on software-based security, aimed at the OS and app level. But it’s equally important to guard against threats across the entire server lifecycle including:

  • Un-regulated component sourcing which can allow drives, memory, and processors infected with malware to be installed during server production

  • Operational threats which allow bad actors to gain access at the firmware level, where attacks are the most difficult to detect and combat

  • Asset retirement threats that allow a hacker to resurrect your data from drives not properly erased.

As you read reports about security breaches, you may feel troubled by the notion that this could affect your business if your IT security is not up to par. You may be filled with a constant worry over exposure to malware, such as firmware viruses and denial of service attacks, which can immobilize your business. Overall, you feel uneasy about your defences, and concerned about whether your team knows enough to keep your company safe.

Protect your business and data

There is a better way to protect your business and data. Your server infrastructure should be your strongest defense, armed with the latest innovations to guard against and recover from security attacks. Limiting security to firewalls is no longer enough. Protect your enterprise with innovations in firmware protection, malware detection, and firmware recovery — right down to the silicon. Insist on infrastructure solutions with built-in server security features that enable you to:

  • Protect your foundation: secure supply chain practices; firmware protection; leading security and compliance standards; and authenticated network updates.

  • Detect threats: runtime firmware verification and chassis intrusion detection, even when not powered on.

  • Recover quickly: get back to operation quickly after a breach.

  • Retire assets safely: ensure your data is removed securely so it can never be resurrected.

  • Built-In Protection – a silicon root-of trust provides a digital fingerprint in the silicon so you never boot with compromised firmware; and HPE offers the industry’s highest government compliance standards, and the most comprehensive encryption that scales as you grow.

  • Threat Detection – runtime firmware verification monitors firmware and recovers to a known good state in the event of a breach; chassis intrusion detection detects when your server is opened at any point after assembly, even when not powered on; while secure network authentication protects users and data from unauthorized access

  • Fast Recovery – In the event of a breach, restore up to 10k servers with a single click
