Today's blog is a guest post by Darryl Benson, Vice President of Operations at Intelligent Buildings, in support of our joint announcement that they are using Tempered Airwall as the core of a managed security service for their REIT and commercial building clients.
2020 brought great challenges to companies as well as individuals. We’re proud to have been able to help a growing number of organizations improve their security posture and resiliency. While energy providers and municipalities continue to rely on Tempered, we’re also seeing increased activity in the healthcare sector. The rising scourge of ransomware and the highly vulnerable state of medical devices have proven to be key concerns.
Legendary security technologist, Bruce Schneier, recently wrote an article in The Guardian summarizing the impact of the SolarWinds security breach last month, and it’s probably a lot worse than people think. (The breach that is, the article was great!). If you don’t know the gory details of the attack, our CTO, Bryan Skene, covered it nicely here. Schneier was also quoted in an earlier analysis of the hack by noting how extensive the breach was throughout many of our nation’s most sensitive military and industrial networks, and, in fact, the extent of the compromise in each network, or how many networks, may not be known for years.
