    Nemasis – VMS, armed with the Intelligence to Detect Proxylogon

    Published on March 20, 2021

    In the wake of a ubiquitous cyber-attack being executed across the world, cybersecurity leader MicroWorld Technologies Inc., has announced their security solution Nemasis – Vulnerability Management System, being armed with intelligence to detect the highly catastrophic ProxyLogon Vulnerability.

    The on-premises versions of Microsoft Exchange Servers are being targeted in a pervasive global attack through multiple zero-day vulnerabilities that have recently been discovered. The vulnerability christened as ProxyLogon (CVE-2021-26855) allows the attacker to bypass authentication and impersonate users.

    Consequently, an authenticated attacker can execute arbitrary commands on a Microsoft Exchange Server over 443 port.  This vulnerability has been weaponized by at least 10 different APT groups and is being leveraged in ransomware and crypto-mining campaigns.

    By incorporating Nemasis VA/VMS, with the technology to detect this severe vulnerability, MicroWorld is aiding the fight against cybercriminals who are using this vulnerability. By executing a vulnerability assessment using Nemasis VMS, organizations will be able to assess if their IT infrastructure is vulnerable to being exploited through the ProxyLogon vulnerability and can warn users to mitigate the vulnerability before a cybercriminal takes notice.

    Mr. Govind Rammurthy, Managing Director & CEO of MicroWorld Group of Companies said,” The exploitation of this vulnerability has given cybercriminals an opportunity to manipulate the IT infrastructures of organizations across the world. We strongly suggest the use of Nemasis – VMS, to help determine whether the organization’s network is vulnerable to exploitation and safeguard their IT assets.

    Ms. Shweta Thakare, Vice President Global Sales & Marketing added, “Our research and development team have been working tirelessly in producing a complete product and with Nemasis – VMS we are proud to present a solution that can help alleviate the digital conundrum that has engulfed the corporate and enterprise sector globally.”

    MicroWorld Technologies ‘Nemasis’ is a Vulnerability Management Suite which assists in implementing a comprehensive GRC (Governance, Risk Management, and Compliance) strategy for managing an organization’s overall governance, risk, and compliance with regulations.
