The risks

The risk to supply chain assets due to malware is huge and the build, test and production

environments are always at risk of suffering a malware attack. What ensues is failure of existing

detection methods failure and compromise of software development lifecycle. Environments are

often exposed to all imaginable vectors of attack caused by insider contamination due to malicious

third-party software components. The production environment is at a high risk too. Classic case in

point - Operation ShadowHammer - a supply chain attack that leveraged ASUS Live Update software

and went unnoticed since the updates were signed with legitimate certificates.

Use of open-source components for software development, vendor updates, package redistribution

are all breeding grounds for malware. Then there are concerted attacks too wherein a tool you need

gets substituted with something malicious within the supply chain. What you need to understand is

that every unchecked risk can lead to damaging consequences. What you need is better controls and

checks to ensure a malware-free environment.

According to Gartner, “An endpoint protection platform (EPP) is a solution deployed on endpoint

devices to prevent file-based malware, malicious scripts and memory-based threats. It is also

deployed to detect and block malicious activity from trusted and untrusted applications, and to

provide the investigation and remediation capabilities needed to dynamically respond to security

incidents and alerts”.
