Significance of Network Forensic Device to Enterprise Secured IT Environment

How to Effectively Control Internal Threats inside Enterprise

Internal threat is like cancer in the early stage. When it grows silently, nobody senses its existence. Once it has impact on health, it has been growing rampant inside body and even risked life. It is quite essential for IT security officer and auditor in enterprise to find out potential internal threats as early as possible.


In high tech industry, lots of companies suffered billions US dollars loss for the past 10 years just because few disgruntled employees carried core business confidential to competitors or opened new business to compete against ex-employers. There was more than 10 billion US dollar loss, according to market survey, by corporate internal threats worldwide in 2013, and, worst of it, most of cases are still going through long term lawsuit process for reparation now. What victim company loses is not only money, but it also loses business momentum in the market and credit to both partners and customers.


Why is it hard to detect internal threats inside enterprise IT environment? Most of enterprises are lacking efficient procedure and appropriate equipment to prevent it, though those enterprises invested lots in IT security enhancement every year against any kind of potential IT threats. On the other hand, the trend of “Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) in corporate IT environment by cloud computing increases the risk of malice data leakage.
“We fully understand how serious about internal threats inside enterprise IT environment is,” said Casper Chang, CEO of Decision Group “because I and Decision Group also suffered such internal threat before. We have developed powerful weapon by network forensic technology against such risk, and also like to share our experience and technology to our customers.”


Nowadays, enterprise IT environment is getting more and more complicated because of versatile of business demands from market and multiple functions of internal organization. To this requirement, Decision Group offers full spectrum of network forensic solutions against potential internal threats at every corner of enterprise IT environment.


First for enterprise wireless and wired networks, we offer different network forensic devices to check the malice behavior. In wireless network, Decision Group Network Investigation Toolkit (NIT) can effectively combat all traffic through enterprise wireless network. You may verify whether there is any unknown access and intrusion from employee own mobile device or through spilled-over wave. 


In enterprise wired network, there are lots of difficulties to collect all traffic extensively due to configuration of network segment and traffic volume; however, Decision Group network forensic solutions focus on 2 perspectives of IT security: internet link and intranet link. Most of internal threat instants are of data leakage through internet. So, how to detect whether there is any potential data leakage possibility among outbound messages to internet is very critical to enterprise. On the other hand, the risk of data leakage among outbound messages is much higher in those HTTPS protected messages. Decision Group provides E-Detective can effectively detect those potential data leakage instance in those outbound messages, whatever plain messages or HTTPS messages, notify IT security officer if suspicious messages are detected and keep suspicious messages as evidence.


Another point of internal threats is inside intranet. Those threats such as harassment, blackmail, cyber bully…etc., are very common in daily office life. How to maintain a secured office environment for all employees is very important. Decision Group provides Enterprise Data Guardian System (EDGS) to monitor all internal activities of enterprise emails, file transferring and data accessing…etc. Through deployment of EDGS, IT security can easily confirm those malice cyber activities in enterprise IT environment.


The above functions we mention are the data interception of Decision Group network forensic solution. Practically IT security officer cannot only check out each activity record of potential internal threats, but IT security officer can also use many powerful analytic tools, like bandwidth usage by person, service usage by person, link analysis…etc., provided by Decision Group solutions to find out what the fact and motive is behind these internal threats. Long term analysis on these intercepted records can also provide an insight on employee office behavior. This analytic report can be integrated into part of corporate IT auditing report.


For those enterprises with multiple office location, the deployment of Decision Group network forensic solution can be multi-tier with distributed frontend system in each branch office and centralized backend management (CMS) and data retention systems (DRMS) in enterprise data center. By this way, IT security officer and auditor can monitor all potential internal threats in the entire enterprise IT environment centrally. Besides, Decision Group network forensic solutions can be integrated easily with different corporate IT management systems, such as SIEM, IDS, DLP and NMS, to provide a seamless IT security web for any potential IT risk.


Over all, Decision Group has developed full spectrum of network forensic solutions for enterprise IT demand on effective internal threat prevention. All the products are based on the IT governance and IT risk mitigation for enterprise IT environment.

Enhanced Management Capability on Network Forensic Systems

Decision Group Central Management System for Distributed Deployment

Nowadays, people like to send messages, talk to friends, watch TV and movie, and share information with others through Internet by ubiquitous mobile devices. Telecom service providers also deploy next generation of network system with more high speed and large capacity for such demand from subscribers.


On the other side, with versatile type of information on Internet, internet threats inside enterprises and cyber fraud in society become more and more rampant. Impact of such cybercrimes is more significant to economic and political situation of state. No matter in enterprises for cyber security or in telecom IDC for lawful interception, the deployment of network forensic systems will be more complicated and multiplicity in order to intercept target traffic extensively.


In reality, we have also helped build up such distributed deployment of network forensic systems for several clients from enterprises and law enforcement agencies in several states. From technical viewpoint, as solution provider, we deeply hope the architecture of implemented systems is as simple as possible. Actually, in customer network environment with high speed and large capacity traffic, we must adopt distributed deployment to balance traffic loading in accord with performance of network forensic systems.
Under such distributed deployment requirement, how to coordinate and manage all distributed systems for major network forensic task is very critical to customer business i.e. centralized management on all involved systems.


“We know how customers expect and manage these highly integrated systems,” said Casper Kan Chang, CEO of Decision Group “so we enhance the capability of centralized management with industrial standard technology – SNMP management in order to provide more stable solution with high degree of integrity for customer mission critical task, no matter for cyber security or lawful interception.” 
The current distributed deployment Decision Group provided is with 3 tier architecture:

Tier-1: in this layer, there are all front-end data collection and protocol analyzer systems, such as E-Detective, ED2S, iMediator and Wireless-Detective systems.
Tier-2: in this layer, there are data retention system and provision data system.
Tier-3: in this layer, there are centralized management system and secondary data analysis systems.
The above 3 tier systems form a complete solution for dedicated customer operation, i.e. lawful interception or ITSM.
The SNMP management support in Decision Group Centralized Management System is at 2 different levels:

Coordination and management among different systems – in highly distributed deployment, there are many systems with different roles and functions: some are data collection systems from network devices, some are data retention systems, some are data filtering and scoping management systems, and some are data analysis systems. Thus, coordination and management for seamless processes among different systems is very important.
Integration with SOC or NMS system – basically all deployed network forensic systems are not aliens to other network devices in the same IDC site. How to manage all network forensic systems under the same governance scope is very important. So, integrate with SOC or NMS system is the fundamental requirement for network forensic system to be deployed in customer network environment.
By such requirement, Decision Group has provided system management capability by SNMP support in some projects since 2013 on few network forensic products. As the distributed deployment becomes more popular in 2014, we decide to enhance SNMP support to our full spectrum of product and also add SNMP manager in our Centralized Management System.
This enhancement will not only provides strong system coordination and management capability among Decision Group network forensic solutions, but it also provide high integration capability with other backend SOC and NMS for more IT government and ITSM support.

Monitoring iVote, Cyber Election Campaign, for National Security
New Enhancement on Decision Group Network Forensic System
Recently unofficial referendum on democratic reform through Internet in Hong Kong attracted eyeballs of the world. No matter what kind of result it may, this kind of vote will definitely change politic atmosphere in Hong Kong and its neighboring areas. This cyber vote in Hong Kong is not only an independent incident in the world, but it is also part of global trend of iVote movement from western world.
iVote is emerging from exit poll survey in western style of election campaign. Unlike exit poll through internet, iVote is a cyber-election or referendum on social issue officially, though it can be used unofficially by mass media for public survey or sentiment on certain kind of hot social disputes with clear scope.
In mature democratic societies, such as most states in North America and Western Europe, iVote held by trustful organization can reflect public sentiment on national or social matters in particular moment. Even so, the security and authentication mechanism must be raised to highest level in iVote process in order to have everyone’s opinion recorded precisely without error.
In some highly social divided countries, the social meaning of vote itself is highly political among different sectarians. In other words, there is no such social condition to hold an iVote event, because there are many factors affecting the fidelity of iVote, such as cyber division, lack of appropriate security mechanism and trustful auditing process, confidentiality for cyber vote, tradition influence by the elders within family, community and tribe…etc. Especially those distrustful biased result of unofficial iVote may cause more violence among different sectarians and make society unstable. Therefore, iVote may not be suitable in these countries.
Since iVote really impact social and political situation a lot in these states, some ambitious politic men or social movement advocators try to set up iVote website on certain highly disputed social issues outside state in order to irritate mob or large scale riot against authority.
How to monitor, restrict, collect more evidence, and even block such iVote on domestic matters from extra-terrestrial area is in the top priority list of national security mission in some states. “We fully understand the emerging demand from national security agencies in the world,” said Casper Chang, CEO of Decision Group “and we have enhanced our network forensic system with more surveillance capability on such iVote websites for national security demand.”
Current iVote websites around the world provide several much familiar functions: presenting the description on the topic, offering different options for voting, identifying voter’s qualification for voting (such as age, gender, physical identity, residence place, nationality…etc.), interviewing with shorter questionnaire.  DG network forensic system will not only capture all voting transaction from voters, but it will also collect all voter background information through access network as well as information from websites.
All iVote data collected by DG network forensic system will be reconstructed into format style easy for further analysis. State government and intelligence agency can take immediate proper action based on the intercepted data report and data analysis from DG network forensic system to prevent situation from deterioration and out of control.
