US Cybersecurity Census Report
Cybersecurity is now recognized as a key priority for U.S. businesses. However, cybersecurity threats are evolving as risks, and the responses necessary to mitigate them, change rapidly. Staying a step ahead of bad actors is a continuous challenge and businesses—despite their intentions to do so—aren’t always keeping pace.

Cybersecurity is now recognized as a key priority for U.S. businesses. However, cybersecurity threats are evolving as risks, and the responses necessary to mitigate them, change rapidly. Staying a step ahead of bad actors is a continuous challenge and businesses—despite their intentions to do so—aren’t always keeping pace.

To solve this problem, IT leaders must understand why. They need answers to questions such as, how is cybersecurity transforming? How are cyberattacks harming businesses? Where must investments in preventative training and tools be focused? Is cybersecurity being prioritized by leadership? And how does cybersecurity fit within organizational culture?

In partnership with Sapio Research, Keeper Security analyzed the behaviors and attitudes of 516 IT decision-makers in the U.S. to answer these questions and more. This report, Keeper’s second annual U.S. Cybersecurity Census, maps the transforming landscape of cybersecurity based on these expert insights. It provides leaders with a forensic assessment of the threats their businesses face and details the urgent strategies necessary to overcome them.

Businesses across the U.S. are making cybersecurity a priority. However, despite efforts and investments, clear gaps remain. Our research shows that there have been small steps, but no giant leaps.

The volume and pace at which threats are hitting businesses are increasing, and leadership can’t afford to wait. If they do, the financial, reputational, and organizational penalties will be severe. Likewise, as work has transformed dramatically over the past two years—with hybrid and remote working normalized— companies need to rethink how they are building cybersecurity resilience.

Shaping the Future of Remote Access With Apache Guacamole Technology
In today's hybrid and remote working era, the importance of secure and convenient remote desktop access has become increasingly evident. As employees access sensitive data and systems from various locations and devices, organizations face heightened security risks. These risks include potential data breaches and cyber attacks, particularly when IT and DevOps teams use privileged accounts for remote infrastructure management.
In today's hybrid and remote working era, the importance of secure and convenient remote desktop access has become increasingly evident. As employees access sensitive data and systems from various locations and devices, organizations face heightened security risks.

Network Vulnerability Remediation with BackBox
In an age of rising cyber dangers, the need for a complete network security management platform has become critical. The BackBox Network Vulnerability Manager, when combined with the BackBox Network Automation Platform, provides a simplified approach to identifying vulnerabilities and strengthening defenses. It provides dynamic inventory, risk rating, CVE mitigation, and repair priority, which reduces human labor while providing proactive network protection.

When used in conjunction with the BackBox Network Automation Platform, BackBox Network Vulnerability Manager aids in the detection of vulnerabilities and the strengthening of cyber-attack defenses. Administrators confront substantial hurdles in addressing vulnerabilities in network devices such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems (IDSs), and routers. NIST publishes over 2,500 CVEs each month, overwhelming network managers with security knowledge.

The BackBox Network Vulnerability Manager solves these issues with its Closed-Loop Vulnerability Remediation procedure.

Dynamic Inventory: BackBox offers a comprehensive picture of network and security devices, removing the need for laborious and error-prone inventory processes.

Risk Scoring and Analytics: BackBox Network Vulnerability Manager's risk scoring engine assesses organizational vulnerabilities, providing attack surface scores and risk metrics for all network devices. This offers a thorough understanding of network vulnerabilities and risk exposure.

CVE Mitigation: Administrators search device configurations for vulnerable settings to assess CVE relevance. Automation removes mitigated vulnerabilities from the risk score. Certain CVEs can be marked non-applicable, recalculating the risk score for an accurate vulnerability status.

Without BackBox, vulnerability patching involves a manual process:

  • Understand inventory and exposures
  • Determine update priorities
  • Remediate with temporary configuration fixes
  • Remediate permanently with OS updates
  • Remove temporary configuration fixes

BackBox automates device detection, data collecting, and vulnerability mapping while prioritizing updates based on risk assessment. This gives administrators an up-to-date picture of network hazards, allowing them to quickly upgrade and provide full security.

OS Updates and Patching with BackBox
Given that the National Cyber Security Center of the United Kingdom has emphasized the critical need of patching, it is imperative to look at the common delays in OS upgrades. It promotes a different way of thinking by emphasizing upgrades as vital security precautions as opposed to tedious administrative duties. BackBox appears as a remedy, strengthening network security by automating and streamlining vendor update procedures.

BackBox understands the disparity between the accepted significance of OS upgrades and their regular delays. Exploring historical backgrounds, we learn how updates were originally considered regular administrative duties, despite their vital importance in today's cybersecurity scene. BackBox, supported by convincing statistics from reliable sources including as Ponemon, ServiceNow, and Gartner, reveals missed chances for breach prevention because of delayed patching and illuminates the operational constraints created by manual procedures that impede effective vulnerability mitigation.

We provide BackBox as the answer and describe its revolutionary potential to optimize updating processes:

  • Automation Features: BackBox is equipped with automation features that minimize human participation and any mistakes during updating procedures.
  • Vendor-Agnostic Approach: Our technology ensures uniformity and effectiveness throughout the network by effortlessly adjusting to a variety of vendor settings.
  • Strong Reporting Features: BackBox has strong reporting features that help with decision-making by giving information about update statuses.
  • Context-Aware Updates: Our technology optimizes security measures while reducing interruptions by delivering updates that are specifically matched to the network environment.

Real-world success stories demonstrate BackBox's efficacy, resulting in considerable savings for organizations.  BackBox is the catalyst for reframing operating system upgrades as critical security measures, providing a strong solution to strengthen network defenses against growing cyber threats.
