Leak Paths are the Most Common Attack Vector Used by Cyber Criminals!

Continuous changes to the network landscape, including infrastructure, operating systems, and applications can cause organizational security policy and network defense configurations to become misaligned and/or difficult to monitor, contributing to a proliferation of leaks. Malicious attackers, as part of an overall attack, either create or use existing leak paths to infiltrate networks, compromise endpoints, shuttle additional malware, install encryption software for ransomware, move laterally to find sensitive data, and even take over additional systems through more infections.

A leak is an unauthorized inbound or outbound connection route to the Internet or to sub-networks. A leak goes through the network perimeter or between secure zones. It may take the form of an unsecured forwarding device exposed to the Internet, for example, or it could manifest as a forgotten open link to a former business partner or link between segments.

Lumeta Spectre identifies  ALL leak paths that you have today not only to identify existing leak paths, but also new leak paths created in real-time, which can be attributed to misconfigurations or malicious activity.
