Resecurity Launches Supply Chain Digital Security Model for Enterprises
Los Angeles-based Resecurity has launched a new supply chain security model designed to help enterprises evaluate the risk of third parties.
The new feature is in line with the Biden administration’s May 12 cybersecurity executive order, which calls for a comprehensive review of supply chain risks in high-priority industries, Resecurity said Tuesday.
Resecurity CEO Gene Yoo said the new feature allows enterprise users to make well-informed decisions, alert stakeholders to threats and mitigate factors that can lead to a data breach.
“We enable enterprises to manage their digital risks by providing them with actionable intelligence and in-depth visibility into cyber threats originating from a third-party,” Yoo added.
Resecurity said the model uses algorithms that can analyze the digital footprint of third parties and detect compromised endpoints, network intrusions, data breaches and misconfigured systems.
The tool was designed to address software vulnerabilities such as the one that led to the SolarWinds Orion hack, which reportedly compromised the networks of multiple federal government agencies and American companies.
Officials from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency recently highlighted the importance of properly managing critical software to prevent SolarWinds-level breaches.
Bob Kolasky, CISA’s assistant director for the National Risk Management Center and a speaker at a past Potomac Officers Club event, said the government has been developing new supply chain risk management tools since the discovery of the incident.
Resecurity said its new feature will also help enterprises comply with higher levels of the Department of Defense’s Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification program, which is aimed at strengthening the defense industrial base.
