CloudBees survey reveals C-suite supply chain security concerns

new global survey of C-level

A executives released by

CloudBees , an enterprise software delivery company , has revealed high confidence levels in software supply chain security but a limited understanding of the essential components that make a software supply chain secure .
According to the CloudBees Global C-suite Security Survey , executives overwhelmingly claimed their software supply chains are secure ( 95 %) or very secure ( 55 %) and 93 % said they were prepared to deal with an issue such as ransomware or a cyberattack on their supply chain .
However , when asked additional questions about the security of their supply chains , the responses uncovered vulnerabilities . More than two in five ( 45 %) executives admitted that initiatives to secure their software supply chains were halfway complete or less and 64 % said they were not sure who they would turn to first if their supply chain was attacked .
“ It ’ s critical that software supply chains operate in the most secure and compliant manner possible . These findings show that while leaders are confident on the surface , they are also aware of security and planning gaps that could expose companies to significant business disruption , regulator and customer concerns and negative brand impact ,” said Prakash Sethuraman , Chief Information Security Officer , CloudBees .

NETSCOUT engages with NTT Communications on threat intelligence

ETSCOUT SYSTEMS , a market leader in

N cybersecurity , service assurance and business analytics , has announced that it is working with NTT Communications Corporation ( NTT Com ) to conduct research and resilience testing to detect and mitigate cyberattacks by leveraging the resources of NETSCOUT ’ s ATLAS Security Engineering and Response Team ( ASERT ).

and mitigate large DDoS attacks , implement defence measures for application attacks , analyse malware attacks in honeypots , leverage Artificial Intelligence ( AI ) to predict cyberattacks and identify new attacks before becoming an issue .
NTT Com is taking active measures to ensure its network can support increased traffic and security needs while providing a more resilient network for the future .
Volumetric DDoS attacks overwhelm internal network capacity to consume bandwidth so that genuine users cannot gain access to a network , application , or service .
“ We ’ ve detected a huge uptick in volumetric DDoS cyberattacks globally , since the release of the Mirai source code , including a 1.7 Tbps reflection / amplification attack in recent years ,” said Hardik Modi , Associate Vice President of Engineering , Threat and Mitigation Products , NETSCOUT .
NETSCOUT ASERT will collaborate with NTT Com ’ s technical team to implement this initiative . The focus will be to discover
