SERVER VIRTUALIZATION

Red Hat Migration Toolkit for Virtualization Makes Cloud-Native Migration an Achievable Reality

Red Hat | June 18, 2021

Red Hat, Inc., the world’s leading provider of open source solutions, announced today the general availability of Red Hat’s migration toolkit for virtualization, which will assist organizations in accelerating available hybrid cloud strategies by making it easier to migrate existing workloads to modern infrastructure in a streamlined, wholesale manner. IT companies may have a faster, more scalable modernization experience while minimizing possible risks and downtime by bringing mission-critical applications based on virtual machines (VMs) to Red Hat OpenShift. As more companies start containers and cloud-native technologies, IT teams are being challenged with handling old systems and workloads, many of which may be running on infrastructure or resources incompatible with current computing realities. Without the proper tools, modernizing these deployments may be time-consuming, costly, and overwhelming for developers, IT operations teams, and business users. Red Hat introduced OpenShift Virtualization in 2020 to assist companies in breaking down application barriers between traditional and cloud-native workloads. Red Hat advanced traditional application stacks into a layer of open innovation with OpenShift Virtualization, allowing clients to transform at their own pace truly. As this trend continues, Red Hat collaborates with customers and partners to modernize and move projects to offer cloud-native capabilities via migration toolkits included with OpenShift. These services now feature Red Hat’s migration toolbox for virtualization, which helps convert VMs at scale to Red Hat OpenShift. This enables companies to access virtualized workloads while creating new cloud-native applications more easily. Migrations are carried out in a few easy steps, beginning with the provision of source and destination credentials, followed by mapping the source and destination infrastructure and creating a choreographed plan, and lastly, by the execution of the plan. About Red Hat, Inc. Red Hat is the world’s leading provider of enterprise open source software solutions, using a community-powered approach to deliver reliable and high-performing Linux, hybrid cloud, container, and Kubernetes technologies. Red Hat helps customers integrate new and existing IT applications, develop cloud-native applications, standardize our industry-leading operating system, and automate, secure, and manage complex environments. Award-winning support, training, and consulting services make Red Hat a trusted adviser to the Fortune 500. As a strategic partner to cloud providers, system integrators, application vendors, customers, and open source communities, Red Hat can help organizations prepare for the digital future.

SECURITY

Ransomware Study: Two Thirds of Security Professionals Believe Ransomware and Terrorism Threats are Equal

Venafi | December 27, 2021

Venafi, the inventor and leading provider of machine identity management, announced the findings of a global survey of more than 1,500 IT security decision makers that reveals that almost two-thirds (60%) of security almost two-thirds (60%) believe ransomware threats should be prioritized at the same level as terrorism. These opinions echo the U.S. Department of Justice, which raised the threat level of ransomware following the Colonial Pipeline attack earlier this year. The study also found that less than one-third of respondents have implemented basic security controls that break the ransomware kill chain. Other key findings include: Over two thirds (67%) of respondents from organizations with more than 500 employees experienced a ransomware attack over the last 12 months—a figure that rises to 80% for respondents from organizations with 3,000-4,999 employees. Over a third (37%) of respondents would pay the ransom but more than half of these (57%) would reverse that decision if they had to publicly report the payment, as required by the Ransomware Disclosure Act, a U.S. Senate bill that would require companies to report ransomware payments within 48 hours. Despite the rising number of ransomware attacks, more than three-quarters (77%) say they are confident the tools they have in place will protect them from ransomware attacks. Australian IT decision makers have the most confidence in their tools (88%), compared with 71% in the U.S. and 70% in Germany. Twenty two percent believe paying a ransom to be “morally wrong.” Seventeen percent of those breached admitted they paid the ransom, with U.S. respondents paying most often (25%) and Australian companies paying least often (9%). The fact that most IT security professionals consider terrorism and ransomware to be comparable threats tells you everything you need to know; these attacks are indiscriminate, debilitating and embarrassing. Unfortunately, our research shows that while most organizations are extremely concerned about ransomware, they also have a false sense of security about their ability to prevent these devastating attacks. Too many organizations say they rely on traditional security controls like VPNs and vulnerability scanning instead of modern security controls, like code signing that are built-in to security and development processes.” Kevin Bocek, Vice President ecosystem and threat intelligence at Venafi The study shows that most organizations are not using security controls that break the ransomware kill chain early in the attack cycle. Many ransomware attacks start with phishing emails that include a malicious attachment—but just 21% restrict the execution of all macros within Microsoft Office documents. Less than a fifth (18%) of companies restrict the use of PowerShell using group policy, and only 28% require all software to be digitally signed by their organization before employees are allowed to execute it. About the research Conducted by Sapio Research, Venafi’s survey evacuated the opinions of 1,506 IT security officers across the U.K., Australia, France, Germany, Benelux and the U.S. About Venafi Venafi is the cybersecurity market leader in machine identity management, securing machine-to-machine connections and communications.
