Who’s Afraid of ETW? GuardiCore Guide to Building a Robust Windows Agent

As true believers in collaboration in the cyber industry, we continue to open a window to our interesting projects. We hope it will benefit the community and encourage others to do the same.  Several months ago we published the source code for our Infection Monkey project and today we are revealing how we built our Windows Agent to support GuardiCore Reveal, the data center and cloud visibility and segmentation policy component of our flagship product, GuardiCore Centra.

GuardiCore ❤ IPv6

Earlier this month, Amazon announced a long awaited feature – IPv6 support for EC2 instances! Amazon is the first of the three big public cloud providers (together with Microsoft and Google) to offer direct, all-the-way-to-the-instance IPv6 connectivity.

IPv6 makes life easier for AWS deployments. Unlike IPv4 addresses, which are split to private and public ones with a NAT in between, each EC2 instance has only a single, internet routable IPv6 address. No NATs, no complex networking setups – One Address To Rule Them All. This greatly simplifies network deployments, while maintaining the ability to build more complex structures. Amazon also provides a simple way to turn IPv6 addresses to “private only” with an egress-only Internet gateway.

Needless to say, GuardiCore Reveal supports IPv6 out of the box.

GuardiCore helps security teams see into apps and networks before they segment

The digital business era has brought with it a number of new tools and technologies, such as software-defined networking (SDN), Internet of Things (IoT), mobility and the cloud. These innovations enable businesses to increase their level of dynamism and be more distributed, but they also increase the complexity of securing the business. Old-school security methods and tools do not work in an environment where the perimeter is eroding and resources are becoming more virtual and cloud-centric.

GuardiCore Reveal lets security teams discover, monitor and visualize activity inside the data center, as well as control traffic through micro-segmentation policies.

Visibility Is the Key to Micro-Segmentation

Server and network virtualization, combined with ever-increasing traffic, network speed and server density have created a visibility gap. Administrators simply cannot “see” what is going on deep in their data centers and sophisticated attackers can go undetected for extended periods of time. GuardiCore VP of Marketing Dave Burton explores this issue in this article published in Data Center Dynamics.

Micro-Segmentation, the right way.

Last week we attended the Check Point CPX2016 conference in Chicago. We talked to a lot of interesting people including network administrators, security team members & CISOs, each one with his or her own story and pain points. We’ve had fascinating conversations, about floating data centers, securing law firm applications and the usual woes of developers on security teams (and the other way around).

Revealing GuardiCore Reveal™

For the last year or so, we’ve been hard at work building GuardiCore Reveal™, our Data Center Visibility platform. As we’ve officially released it earlier this week, I’m finally allowed to tell you all about it (and, yes, show off a bit!).
