NTT, a leading global technology services company, has announced it is offering qualified clients a free-of-charge specialised sensor capability. This will enable enterprises and public sector agencies to make an initial determination of their risk and potential means to mitigate attacks related to the recent SolarWinds incidents.
In December 2020, a supply chain attack through SolarWinds’ commonly-used network management software allowed malware to be distributed to at least 18,000 organisations around the world. Additional threats have also since been identified, potentially exposing organisations’ applications and data.
In response to these supply chain attacks, NTT will provide companies that believe themselves to be at risk of compromise with their 30-day trial of its Specialised Sensor for SolarWinds Detection and Alerting across all platforms other than Azure, at no charge.
Organisations can then engage with NTT for a more in-depth review, analysis, recommendations and remediation, including a rapid incident compromise assessment.
Matt Gyde, President and CEO, Security Division at NTT, said: “Threat actors have exploited disruption during the COVID-19 crisis to launch an accelerated wave of cyberattacks around the world. The SolarWinds incidents were orchestrated by sophisticated operators and exploit the broad distribution of commonly used software packages. NTT has now moved to proactively offer clients a way to identify potential problems in their technology infrastructure and take the steps needed to close those gaps.”Click below to share this article
