Securing Information with Darkbeam

It is no surprise that increasing amounts of information are stored in ‘the cloud’. In many cases, highly sensitive items such as passwords and API keys are stored in ‘buckets’ – online repositories of information that allow remote access.

These buckets are perfectly fine when properly secured. But when security is lax, highly sensitive information is left open for the world to see.

These incidents are more common than many would expect. Very large companies including Netflix and Ford have suffered at the hands of a supplier whose storage buckets were left unsecured. The leaked information included emails, passwords and contact information.

How can companies protect their sensitive information?

Darkbeam’s powerful Horizon platform automatically searches for any cloud storage connected to every domain it audits. Your report will show you every unsecured storage bucket it finds.

In many cases, suppliers will not be aware that their storage has been left exposed. Discovering exposures before threat actors do allows the risk to be eliminated before information is leaked.

With modern websites collecting and saving information from multiple sources, it is not unusual to see storage instances in the double digits - meaning Darkbeam's Horizon platform takes time and effort out of the auditing process.

Cloud service providers make it very easy for developers to secure their online storage. In most cases, secure is the default option. Yet configuration mistakes are often made and can have disastrous consequences - both on finances and reputation. Discovering unsecured storage through Darkbeam's Horizon platform means that you can discover exposures from any company in your supply chain quickly and act accordingly.
