Recent reports of cyber-attacks on sites such as whitehouse.gov, NASDAQ, NYSE, Yahoo!'s financial page and the Washington Post prompted Astaro to share some general network security knowledge with the public to help other organizations avoid these types of attacks.
The post, written by Astaro's Tim Cronin, includes advice on network based mitigation, host based mitigation and proactive measures for avoiding cyber-attacks.
"The recent attacks on US and South Korean websites is yet another example of how vulnerable even the most sophisticated networks can be to cyber-attacks," said David Rogers, Vice President, Americas, Astaro Corporation. "Astaro feels it is our responsibility as a security vendor to provide the public with any information we have that will help prevent these types of attacks from infecting networks. This tip sheet is just the latest example of Astaro's commitment to providing valuable information to the technology community."
