Detect Software Supply Chain Attacks

Eradicate attackers already inside your enterprise environment.

Supply chain attacks get into your network through trusted software—whether your enterprise has cloud, on-premises, or hybrid infrastructure—leaving you no chance to prevent intrusion. If an attacker has already made it into your environment, how would you know? Can you still stop them?

Catch Supply Chain Compromises And Stop Breaches

Once an attacker is in your environment, Reveal(x) detects the early warning signs of a stealthy supply chain intrusion, so you can stop them. Discover every device. Map the attack surface. Secure unmanaged devices and shadow IT. Eradicate software supply chain attackers.

How Supply Chain Attacks Go Big

The U.S. Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) says that "organizations are uniquely vulnerable to software supply chain attacks" because third-party software often has privileged access to the network, and requires frequent network communication back to the vendor to receive updates, including security patches. Attackers exploit these factors to expand access and maximize damage. From enterprise software to open source modules, any third-party software in your environment could be exploited for initial compromise by a savvy attacker.

Detect Supply Chain Attacks with Complete Behavioral Analysis

CISA recommends that security teams use machine learning and artificial intelligence to establish a baseline for normal network communication behavior of third-party software in their environment.

Reveal(x) discovers and analyzes every network transaction in your enterprise environment, and uses cloud-scale AI fuelled by petabytes of data per day to detect even the stealthiest shifts in behavior. Reveal(x) also automatically identifies critical assets and applies a heightened level of analytics, to assure that threats against business-critical data are detected rapidly, with plenty of time and context to respond and eradicate the threat.

An organization should identify its critical data and baseline how that data flows between processes or systems. Defenders can deploy analytics, including those based on machine learning/artificial intelligence, to identify subsequent anomalies in data flows, which may be early indicators of a threat actor's exploitation of a vulnerability.

CISA, Defending Against Software Supply Chain Attacks

Eliminate Supply Chain Blind Spots With Network Intelligence

Getting a clear view of network behavior inside the enterprise has historically been a challenge for SecOps teams, leaving a major gap in defensive intelligence, which supply chain attackers have exploited. Reveal(x) eliminates this gap.

Reveal(x) discovers every device and workload on the network, and identifies software, hardware, users, and more. This provides a complete picture of the potential attack surface for supply chain attackers—from devices to cloud workloads and containers. A complete inventory of vulnerable and actively-threatened devices is correlated with forensic data and mitigation guidance in a Reveal(x) Threat Briefing built by the ExtraHop Threat Research team.

Mitigate Supply Chain Attacks From All Directions

Software supply chain risk comes in many forms. Some attacks are highly sophisticated, nation-state-backed operations with geopolitical aims. Some just capitalize on mistakes in open source code to distribute malware or mine cryptocurrencies. But they all have something in common: They must move laterally in their target network to succeed. Achieving significant scale is a necessary requirement for success in any cyber attack today, and this lateral movement offers defenders a chance to detect and respond and ultimately prevent attackers from causing an actual data breach and getting away with it.

Supply chain attacks bypass defenses by exploiting your trust in systems. To protect against them, you have to scrutinize the inherent trust you've placed on your supply chain.
