VPN Alternative for cisos

Secure Against Multiple Steps in the Cyber Kill Chain

Today, as a CISO, you are faced with multiple point solutions requiring appliance lock-in or modifications to existing infrastructure for specific threats. BlastShield™ provides an all-in-one zero trust stack that eliminates VPN costs and resource requirements (secure remote access), eliminates passwords to prevent account takeover attacks (passwordless MFA), and implements software-defined microsegmentation (Software Defined Perimeter) to fragment your flat network into secure enclaves that cloaks assets to prevent lateral movement in the event of a compromise.By using BlastShield™, you can securely extend your internal network to work-from-home users without introducing the high costs and vulnerabilities inherited with VPNs, while eliminating passwords to prevent account takeover (ATO) attacks. BlastShield™ doesn’t stop there. As a SDP solution, it also hides your infrastructure using cloaking to make assets invisible to  the  reach of outsiders and users who aren’t authorized to communicate with those hosts.

“BlastShield truly works. In test after test, I was unsuccessful at circumventing its passwordless MFA login for remote access as well as break outside the software-defined microsegmentation to pivot around inside the network.” - Alissa Knight, CISO, Recovering Hacker

Challenges Faced by CISOs

  • Securing your remote workforce
  • Segmenting flat networks
  • Account Takeover

How BlastShield Helps CISOs

BlastShield™ helps CISOs by instrumenting your network with a solution to solve the three most critical steps in the kill chain for an attacker: (1) remote access compromise; (2) account takeover; and (3) lateral movement. By disrupting the adversarial decision-making process, the mean time to detection (MTTD) and mean time to response (MTTR) can be greatly reduced, lowering the cost of a breach and potential for data compromise.

Secure Your Network From Your Remote Workforce

Because of the new hybrid work environment, the internet has become an integral part of your corporate network. This includes your remote employees’ home networks as well as internal networks and cloud environments. Your VPNs are nearing capacity and are a vulnerability in and of themselves. And, don’t get us started on RDP servers.

Secure your work-from-home users with a passwordless approach to secure remote access using multifactor authentication as the ultimate replacement to your VPN.

Eliminate Account Takeover

If your users aren’t using passwords, there are no passwords to crack or brute force, including account takeover (ATO) tools such as credential stuffers. 

BlastShield™ eliminates passwords. Users access the network remotely with their mobile phone using their private PKI key stored in the secure enclave along with their biometric data, and a unique QR code that provides a cryptographic challenge-response to thwart replay attacks and social engineering.

By eliminating passwords from the authentication process for remote users, account takeover becomes virtually impossible, moving your company closer to eliminating passwords in your environment completely.

Implement Microsegmentation Using Software

CISOs and CTOs no longer need to solve for implementing microsegmentation at the hardware-level using switches and firewalls. Microsegmentation can now be done using software, known as software-defined microsegmentation. Software-defined microsegmentation enables you to “darken” hosts that should not be allowed to communicate, cloaking them from the attacker’s visibility. 

Using BlastShield™, you can work in tandem with your partners in network operations to take your existing flat network and segment servers, workstations, printers, and other assets into their own secure enclaves. By implementing microsegmentation, you prevent attackers from pivoting laterally within the network and restrict their capability to “live off the land” if they establish a beach head. 

The attacker’s potential “blast radius” for affected hosts in the breach becomes limited to just the hosts CISOs define within BlastShield™ that are allowed to talk to each other. If attempts are made by an attacker to talk to other hosts that aren’t a member of that enclave, alerts can be triggered, notifying security operations of the attacker to take immediate sense and response actions to mitigate the threat.

“The security of our data and our customers’ data is our highest priority and we needed a secure platform to provide access to our hybrid data services, hosted both in the cloud and on-premise. BlastShield filled both these needs for us with their patented solution.”- Emil Erlandsson, VP of Professional Services at A2i
