5 Steps to Strengthen Endpoints

We constantly hear about the data breaches and large-scale compromises but ever you wonder what can be the root cause of these attacks?

Today Data is continuously breaches and the growth in cloud or mobility have impaired the weaknesses and lengthened the attack surface. Endpoint devices are also the cause of data breaches. Here are the best ways to improve the protection or make endpoints stronger or remediate the threats.

UNINSTALL UNNECESSARY SOFTWARE

Client operating systems or applications focused on making sure that everything is working properly on system. Therefore many default installations contain extraneous software and these are used as point of compromise. Uninstalling the extraneous or unnecessary software can minimize the attack.

RECOGNIZE THE LEVEL OF DARK ENDPOINTS

Most organization undertakes that more than 95% of endpoints are complaint with required patches.

According to study we found 10% of endpoints do not contain the encryption solution and more than 5 % of endpoints do not report in to security or IT management. And these endpoints are breeding the security breaches.

CHOOSE SECURITY LAYERS

This we can say is first step of choosing security layers. The system management and other endpoints depend on several factors.

PATCH ALL SOFTWARE

A patch is like a vendor that tells the world there is vulnerability in software. As a result, the exposure window is bigger when a system goes unpatched for a long. While patching is always a challenge and uninstalling the software will reduce the patch surface and make the process of patching easier. Centralized patch management is the key of an organization and it is important to remember the travelling laptops- if the system is not in range of network it might miss the patching cycle.

UTILIZE THIN CLIENTS

To control the damage utilizing thin client is an effective way. When new hardware is rolled out the traditional OS gets reinstalled. And if system becomes infected it stays infected for few time.

What is MAC Address? Where MAC is Stored

 

What is MAC Address?

MAC- Media Access Control is unique identifier that is assigned to network interface for communication at data link layer and is used as network address. It is often referred as a hardware or physical address. MAC’s are of 48-bit or 6 bytes and are written in MM:MM:MM:SS:SS:SS format. The first 3 bytes are ID number of manufacturer and next 3-bytes are serial number.

imgpsh_fullsize (50)

It represents Layer 2 of TCP/IP where IP represents layer 3. MAC address supports hardware implementation whereas IP address supports software implementation.

Where MAC is Stored?

MAC addresses are called the “burned in address”. NIC manufactures will assign MAC address to the device and hardcoded is stored in ROM chip and preloaded into non-volatile memory like EEPROM.

imgpsh_fullsize (48)

There are few USB adapters that are not having MAC address preloaded in firmware. These devices rely on software drivers that load on host system to assign the MAC.

So MAC can store on NIC or OS, depends on NIC design. The MAC address lives on the chip with the white sticker.  But now you will find it on flash memory space on NIC or close to network hardware on a motherboard.

Conclusion

MAC is an important element of computer networking. It is an essential component that is required for protocols like TCP/IP to function. Changing MAC address also increase the privacy in some states. Though MAC addresses do not disclose any geographic or any information of ISP location such as IP addresses do.

How to Stay Safe on Public Wi-Fi Networks
