“As for two-factor authentication, for those organizations that use it for VPN access and secure activities on their online accounts and infrastructure, it can help to an extent,” Gazit said. “The issue is that when Web servers themselves are very possibly compromised by unauthorized parties, the authentication using that second factor will also be eavesdropped on, and can be intercepted in a man-in-the-middle fashion. Two-factor authentication will offer more security only once the flaw is patched and the certainty that resources are secured is restored.”

The bottom line: Organizations that know they have been affected must thoroughly examine their internal infrastructure and initiate incident response to ensure that security is fully restored, Gazit said. He called it a classic case where perimeter defenses, firewalls and others defenses are all layers that offer some security, but are unable to detect the unknown and unexpected.

“Organizations need to be able to detect attackers and issues well after they have made it through their gates, find them, and stop them before damage can occur,” Gazit said. “The only way to achieve such a laser-precision level of detection is through the use of hyper-dimensional big data analytics, deploying it as part of the very core of the defense mechanisms.”
