In a study conducted by Argon Security at Aqua Security, it was found that the majority of companies didn’t implement software supply chain security measures and that most organizations are still exposed to software supply chain attacks. Download the report here
“Unfortunately, most security teams lack the resources, budget and knowledge to deal with supply chain attacks,” said Eran Orzel, head of Argon’s sales and customers. “Implementing strong security over the software supply chain takes time and organizations need to priorities this now to be able to secure their process and application against the next attack wave.”
In the modern world, one of the “hot” targets for cyber attackers is the software development supply chains. When attackers launch a supply chain attack, they are in throwing a wide net affecting thousands of companies in a single attack. These attacks also have a strong economic impact and on the customer-vendor relationships of those companies that depend on their cloud security vendors and are trusting the software updates of their software vendors.
12 Months’ Timeline: Software Supply Chain Security
The Argon study identified three primary areas of risk affecting the software supply chain security posture. Closing these security gaps should top priority.
Attackers operating in this space are increasingly exploiting weaknesses in the process of developing and deploying the software and trying to sabotage it, from code theft to code and process manipulations. Looking at the sharp increase of the number of attacks and the damage they inflicted, current efforts and standard security products cannot block such attacks. Organizations must take a proactive and more modern approach to protecting the integrity of their software supply chain process and the security posture of their applications.
Protecting the Software Supply Chain is possible!
Security and DevOps teams need to collaborate in building their software supply chain security strategy and implement automated security within the development process. by adopting new asecurity paradigm and solutions that are designed to secure the software development process against this new wave of sophisticated attacks organizations can close these security gaps and prevent supply chain attacks.
