Re: Breach detection System

So being VP Marketing at LightCyber I definitely understand where your question is coming from as there does seem to be some confusion to what exactly is a "breach".

NSS BDS report compares sandboxing solutions such as Fireeye and others. These product detect malware in incoming mail or web downloads.

Some people argue that sandboxing is a prevention technology (like IPS, UTM, FW and anti-virus) and not a breach detection technology, as it tries to block *potential* infections and not actual breaches.

LightCyber detects the presence and behavior of attackers inside the network when they are already in, but much before the damage is done, regardless of the intrusion vector. In many cases malware is not even part of the process - it could be an attacker that has gained access via remote access, an insider, or a BYOD. Once the attacker is inside it takes him months to create the damage, and LightCyber can detect the breach on the first day or so, by detecting the lateral movement in the network and endpoints.

So LightCyber can detect an active breach regardless of the attack vector.

Since LightCyber covers a different part of the attack, it is not relevant to be compared against Sandboxing products.

I hope that this answers your question.

BigBlueButton before 2.2.8 (or earlier) does not set the secure flag for the session cookie in an https session, which makes it easier for remote attackers to capture this cookie by intercepting its transmission within an http session.
