NTT offers free trial of cyber threat sensor to clients in wake of SolarWinds attacks

In the wake of the SolarWinds attack, global technology services company NTT is offering a 30-day free trial of Specialized Sensor for SolarWinds Detection and Alerting.

Companies who would avail themselves of the service will be able to deploy a specialized sensor in Amazon Web Services and Google Cloud Platform environments for the detection of Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) specific to the SolarWinds breach. (Microsoft’s cloud service Azure is not included in the offering.)

Businesses will also get near real-time notification to a client’s security organization in the event a compromise is detected. There will also be an actionable incident report delivered automatically — and immediately — upon detection of the indicator of compromise (IOC) linked to the SolarWinds breach.

“Threat actors have exploited disruption during the COVID-19 crisis to launch an accelerated wave of cyberattacks around the world,” said Matt Gyde, president and CEO of the Security Division at NTT Ltd. “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.”

Strategy for Supply Chain Security Assurance

Organizations can then engage with NTT for a more in-depth review, analysis, recommendations, and remediation including a rapid incident compromise assessment. NTT can also provide ongoing managed security services such as Security Operations Center as a Service (SOCaaS) and develop a Strategy for Supply Chain Security Assurance, to help clients monitor their technology assets and reduce risk from future threats.

“At NTT our ongoing commitment is to make the world a better place through the power of technology, as we all navigate the new normal, we have an opportunity to build a better, connected future. With innovation, the possibilities to use technology for good are endless,” Gyde said.
