DHS Recognizes SecureLogix With the 2017 “Bang for the Buck” Award

SecureLogix, a leading provider of voice and UC security solutions, are the recipients of the 2017 “Bang for the Buck” Award from the Cyber Security Division (CSD) of the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Science and Technology (S&T) Directorate. The award was presented at the DHS 2017 Cyber Security R&D Showcase and Technical Workshop in Washington D.C. on July 13th, and recognizes the cyber security and public safety research work that SecureLogix is completing in partnership with the DHS S&T Directorate. 

“It’s a great honor for our team to be recognized by DHS for our efforts to deliver high value research for the budget provided,” said Lee Sutterfield, president of SecureLogix. “Our hope is that this research will have a positive and substantial impact on public safety and security of our country and citizenry, and we are proud to partner with DHS on such important work.” 

The S&T’s Cyber Security Division (CSD) awards contracts to fund research into critical security issues identified by DHS, civilian government agencies, and/or the commercial market, and focuses on funding the development of technology that can transfer from the lab into the private marketplace. SecureLogix is completing a series of research contracts with DHS that attempts to address a global rising tide of voice/phone security attacks. The focus of these research projects is to profile and construct defenses to evolving voice/phone-based threats, such as complex Telephony Denial of Service (TDoS) attacks, robocalls, bomb threats, and other types of malicious calls.

Low-cost software tools and communication infrastructure now available to attackers have made it simple, inexpensive, and low-risk to generate malicious calls and other phone-based attacks. TDoS attacks can target and cripple corporate phone systems and other critical public safety infrastructure, such as 911 emergency response services. And phone based consumer fraud detection has become more complex with the easy availability of tools that allow robocall attackers to easily misrepresent their calling number identity (a practice called spoofing).

SAN ANTONIO–(BUSINESS WIRE)–SecureLogix Corporation will be presenting and demonstrating the results of its cybersecurity threats and solutions research at the 2016 Government Cyber Security SBIR Workshop at the JW Marriot in downtown Washington D.C. The focus of these research projects is to profile and construct defenses to evolving UC and voice threats, such as complex Telephony Denial of Service (TDoS), robocalls, bomb threats, and other types of malicious calls. SecureLogix CTO Mark Collier, the Principal Investigator (PI) for the company’s DHS research, will lead presentations of some of the preliminary research results, including:

  • A technology demonstration exhibit session on Tuesday, August 30th from 3:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. in the Capitol Ballroom; and
  • A presentation entitled “Enhanced Distributed Denial of Service Defense” on Thursday, September 1st at 11:40 a.m. in the Capitol Ballroom.

About the SecureLogix Research for DHS

SecureLogix has recently been awarded several cybersecurity research projects within the Department of Homeland Security’s (DHS) Cyber Security Division (CSD) under its Science and Technology Directorate. Mark Collier, the PI on all of these projects, is a leading cybersecurity industry expert on Unified Communications (UC) and voice-related threats, including evolving and complex attacks such as TDoS, bomb threats, robocalls, fraudulent calls with spoofed identities, and other threatening caller activity.

Many of the modern threats executed over voice services and infrastructure involve the attacker misrepresenting caller identity, whereby the fraudster can appear to be calling from a legitimate source number (e.g., a person’s local bank or healthcare provider). As part of this research, SecureLogix is focused on addressing the underlying challenge of detecting the true calling number identity of spoofed calls. SecureLogix is also investigating approaches to strengthen caller authentication. The results of the research are being implemented in the SecureLogix® PolicyGuru® solution, which provides a robust SIP-based platform to implement security policies and orchestrate the automation of organizational and network processes. SecureLogix is working with several pilot partners to test the research in real-world operational settings, including Next Generation (NG) 911, emergency responders, and the financial community.

About Lee Sutterfield

Previous to his role at SecureLogix, Mr. Sutterfield was an executive at WheelGroup (acquired by Cisco Systems in 1998), and an executive agent for the United States Air Force, where he helped pioneer the development of the USAF’s computer security assessment program during the mid-1990s. Sutterfield’s distinguished public and private sector career includes the following accomplishments:

  • 1983-1986: Authored key intelligence reports depicting the coming network-based cybersecurity issues facing the Air Force and U.S. government. Sutterfield briefed these findings across all branches of government at the most executive levels, leading to his reassignment to the Air Force Cryptologic Support Center, Electronic Security Command, San Antonio, Texas to help build the newly assigned mission of Executive Agent for the Air Force Computer Security Program.
  • 1986-1995: Authored Concept of Operations for and helped build the Air Force Computer Security Assessment Program (CSAP). The CSAP included the formation of the Air Force Computer Emergency Response Team, which was one of the first three such organizations established as a result of the “Morris Worm Incident.” The CSAP also established the Countermeasure Engineering Team, which helped Scotland Yard break the “Datastream” Hacker case and several other early notorious hacker events. The CSAP also established the Electronic Security Engineering and Survey teams, which pioneered the concept of enterprise-wide, corporate-level Security Posture Assessment. Sutterfield also initiated the development of the Automated Security Incident Measurement System (ASIMS), which was the first attempt to build an enterprise-wide, near-real-time intrusion detection capability.
  • 1995-1998: Served as chief instigator, co-founder, chairman of the board and executive vice president of strategy for WheelGroup Corporation. WheelGroup pioneered the commercial development of true enterprise-wide, real-time intrusion detection technology via their “NetRanger” product line. Cisco Systems bought WheelGroup in March of 1998. The financial success of WheelGroup opened the doors for many others of talent in the San Antonio cybersecurity community to venture out to the commercial world in the following years.

Analysis Based on Data from Real-World, Documented Attacks on US Corporations Over a 10-Year Period

SAN ANTONIO, March 19, 2013

SecureLogix, a Voice and Unified Communications (UC) Security company, today unveiled a new report measuring the occurrence and severity of new threats facing today’s corporate voice and UC networks. According to SecureLogix, U.S. corporations and their customers are now highly vulnerable to fraud schemes and identity theft via sophisticated attacks such as Telephony Denial of Service (TDoS), Fraud/Social Engineering, and Malicious/Harassing Calls.

The SecureLogix “2013 Voice/UC State of Security Report” offers the first-ever glimpse into threats facing corporate voice networks, drawn from real-world data and documented attacks against U.S. corporations over a 10-year period. Previous attempts to characterize these threats have been limited in scope and largely based on threat glossaries, opinion-based surveys, or hypothetical vulnerability tests conducted in closed, laboratory environments.

“While experts have mainly focused on security risks impacting traditional data networks, few attempts have been made to measure attacks targeting voice/UC applications and environments,” said Rod Wallace, SecureLogix vice president of services. “This report is not an academic, theoretical exercise, but rather a clear view into actual criminal activities and threats. The bottom line – if you transact with a utility, bank, investment firm, retail establishment or any other business that hasn’t made attempts to secure their voice network, you’re in real danger of having financial accounts and private information compromised.”

The SecureLogix report is based solely on information pulled from live, operational voice networks, and characterizes attacks and threats by their specific type, incidence level, and severity of damage and impact on U.S. corporations and their customers. Data is pulled from

engagements across more than 120 corporate operational voice networks, including a number of Fortune 100, Fortune 50 and Fortune 10 companies. Nearly every industry is represented, with a concentration on banking/finance, healthcare, retail, utility, and government.

Among key findings is the significant migration of Denial of Service (DoS) attacks from Internet/data to voice networks, especially in contact center environments. With TDoS, call floods generated by computers can disrupt communication services inside customer-facing contact centers, or be used as part of sophisticated financial fraud attacks and call/traffic pumping schemes. 2012 was also marked by the rapid rise of “Social Networking TDoS,” as Facebook, Twitter, and other social networking vehicles are used in Occupy-style tactics to organize TDoS attacks against corporations and public entities with the express intent of shutting down operations. Additional report findings highlight substantial increases in Social Engineering and Identity Theft schemes over voice lines, a massive jump in the observed volume of Harassing Calls, and the continued presence and growth of Toll Fraud/Long Distance Theft and other forms of voice network attacks.

“One reason we’re seeing an increase in voice attacks and schemes is the adoption of Voice- over-Internet Protocol (VoIP),” said Mark Collier, SecureLogix CTO and vice president of engineering. “Free IP-PBX software such as Asterisk/Tribox, computer-based call generation tools, and easy-to-access SIP services greatly lower the barrier-to-entry for voice network attackers. Call generation is set up quickly and used to generate harassing calls, TDoS, voice phishing and SPAM — and for brute-force probe attacks into call center IVRs for account information used for social engineering.”

SecureLogix Corporation and NEC Corporation of America (NEC) have signed a strategic agreement to deliver first-of-kind voice security and management solutions to enterprise customers in the US. Under the agreement, NEC will provide its suite of products and services together with the SecureLogix® ETM® (Enterprise Telephony Management) System, helping enterprises meet their compliance and voice security needs.

The SecureLogix ETM System helps to secure, optimize and simplify the management of complex enterprise voice/UC networks through enterprise-wide voice network intelligence and unified policy enforcement. A critical component of SIP trunking migration, the ETM System enables a hard-dollar ROI payback in less than 12 months by securing the enterprise from attack, fraud, data leakage, financial losses and service abuse over TDM and VoIP (SIP) enterprise phone lines, while optimizing voice service and infrastructure expenses.

“We see SecureLogix as a tier-one UC security provider with products and services we can deliver to our enterprise customers in the state and local government, financial, and healthcare sectors,” said Greg Cantwell, sales vice president, NEC Enterprise Solutions Unit. “This alliance accentuates our commitment to deliver market leading, innovative, secure IT data and communications solutions that can scale for businesses of all sizes. With SecureLogix, we can provide a comprehensive and complementary suite of UC security solutions to our customers, giving them 360-degree protection for their voice and data networks.”

“We are excited to work with NEC in the US,” added Joe O’Donnell, vice president of business and channel development, SecureLogix. “Both companies are fanatical about enterprise customer satisfaction.”

About the ETM® System

The SecureLogix ETM System is a comprehensive firewall security, performance monitoring, call reporting/analytics and call recording solution, offering enterprise-wide policy enforcement and unified intelligence across enterprise networks with mixed vendors and services. It is the only solution that truly unifies voice security and management across the enterprise through its centralized support of mixed TDM and SIP traffic from any combination of PBX/switch vendors. While guarding against future and growing threats to VoIP/SIP traffic and networks, the ETM System also uniquely addresses current, real-world voice attacks and abuse that target enterprise networks every day and cause substantial financial losses and business disruption. Examples of real-world voice threats include unprotected phone line access points into data networks for hackers and viruses, toll fraud, phone-based social engineering attacks and identity theft, corporate data leakage, unmonitored Internet use over phone lines, harassing and threatening calls, TDoS attacks, voice/fax spam, long distance service theft and abuse, and other unauthorized phone traffic and usage.
