The term internetworking defense (IWC) is a popular marketing buzzword that describes how Internetworking companies are supposed to protect their network from unwanted internet traffic and data intrusions.
The premise behind the defense is that if your network is not secure, you risk losing your Internetworking business to hackers.
But a new report from a company called IWC Defense LLC has a completely different take on the matter.
The firm says it can identify and mitigate Internetworking malware attacks by analyzing the source of the attacks and then detecting the malware on your network, according to a report by security firm FireEye.
The firm claims to have worked with over 300 Internetworking providers and has a team of more than 50 analysts.
“While there are many ways to mitigate the risks of Internetworking security, there are some fundamental differences that can make or break Internetworking defense,” the firm wrote in a blog post.
“If the attackers target you by exploiting a vulnerability in your infrastructure, you are vulnerable to being targeted by the same attack,” the blog post continued.
“For example, an attack targeting an internetwork provider can cause a network failure, leaving it vulnerable to attacks from malicious third parties.
Similarly, an attacker can exploit a network vulnerability in a third party application, such as a web application, to access the internet.
This is what happens when the internetwork server is not secured.
When an attacker compromises an internetworking server, they can potentially gain access to your network’s contents and can install malicious software on your system.”
FireEye analyst Mark Jaffe pointed out that there are several problems with the company’s analysis, including the fact that the company doesn’t have access to actual Internetworking infrastructure.
“They claim to have secured their networks with software, but this is not the case,” he said.
“Their approach does not go through an enterprise-grade network security assessment, which is what they have been asked to perform.”IWC Defense, which was founded in 2014 by the founders of Cyber Security Institute, was hired by a former Verizon employee, Scott Gellman, to help defend against cyberattacks and cyberattack attempts.
The company has worked with Internetworking firms to protect against malicious threats and has been awarded a contract by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission to provide network-level security to Internetworking customers.
“The vast majority of the cybersecurity industry doesn’t believe that Internetworking is a high priority and is often not considered an important part of a company’s security posture,” Jaffe wrote in the blog.
“IWC believes it is critical to make sure that our networks are secure, and that’s why we have partnered with so many major companies to provide solutions to these critical security issues.”
Fireeye has found that a number of Internetworks companies have failed to properly implement network security and other protections in the past.
The threat of ransomware attacks, which are usually carried out through a “cybercriminal” network, has made it increasingly difficult for Internetworks to protect themselves.
