MICROSOFT 10 VULNERABILITY DISCOVERED

Issue:

The vulnerability affects devices running the Windows 10 operating system, as well as the Windows Server 2016 and 2019 operating systems. Using the flaw, attackers could create an exploit that creates fake security certificates, giving them complete access to run malicious software on Windows devices while looking legitimate to the system. "The user would have no way of knowing the file was malicious because the digital signature would appear to be from a trusted provider," Microsoft said in its description of the vulnerability.

Take Action:

Microsoft issued a patch Tuesday (1/14/2020) for the vulnerability. If your devices are not set to auto-update your Windows operating systems, then we strongly recommend you update your Microsoft systems immediately to avoid this exploit. Let Kobargo know if you need assistance patching your systems, or if you would like to set up automatic updates.

KOBARGO TECHNOLOGY INCREASES SECURITY WITH 2FA AND SSO

KOBARGO TECHNOLOGY PARTNERS IS PLEASED TO ANNOUNCE PARTNERSHIP WITH DUO SECURITY.

Surprise, Arizona, November 21, 2019 –  Kobargo Technology Partners has partnered with Duo Security, to ensure their customers get a higher level of security when accessing their data with Two-Factor Authentication (2FA) and Single Sign-On (SSO) solutions.

Because traditional authentication processes are unreliable and provide poor user experiences, Kobargo recommends Duo’s two-factor authentication with single sign-on to ensure their customers gain peace of mind by protecting what is important through a multi-factor authentication solution. When clients are in need of a solution to securely log in to each application several times a day, Kobargo will implement these access solutions without impacting performance or the bottom line.

Kobargo partners with major technology providers to easily extend security controls. As a secure, cloud-based solution, Duo’s multi-factor authentication requires no on-premise hardware to be deployed. 2FA protects against phishing, social engineering, and password brute-force attacks and secures their customers’ logins from attackers exploiting weak or stolen credentials.

Duo Security delivers simple, secure access to all applications – for any user, from any device, from anywhere. Two-factor authentication strengthens access security by requiring two methods (also referred to as factors) to verify a user’s identity. These factors can include something they know - like a username and password, plus something they have - like a smartphone app to approve authentication requests.

“By giving our users the power and confidence in safely accessing sensitive data with Duo Security, our customers gain peace of mind by protecting what is important through a multi-factor authentication process,” Yuval Goren, President, and CEO of Kobargo said. “As a customer’s IT service provider, it’s imperative to deliver solutions that protect data, brands, and reputations.”
