Single Pain of Glass

Today an article, Vendors slow to patch OpenSSL vulnerabilities, in ITNews details that several key technology vendors are yet to fully patch against the OpenSSL cryptographic library used to secure networked communications.

This may come as a big surprise considering the amount of press that Heartbleed has had.

To patch all servers, ask all users to reset passwords can be time consuming. Indeed how many users also practise safe security?

An interesting discussion point is that there are certain tools out there that could make this a very easy process. Whilst one solution / device / practice does not ensure complete coverage it is interesting to note how one solution could have made this whole process easier.

Arbor Networks recently purchased an Australian company called Packetloop and have brought it into their stable under the name Arbor Prevail SA. This unique solution allows the security team to record potential threats before they have been formally identified.
