Some small company shares have rebounded very well from the pandemic problems this year, whereas some haven't. Is there a pattern in this divergence? Well, it seems that shares more directly hit by the lock-downs, e.g. events companies, restaurants, etc., have been more likely to rebound, as the reopening etc. have more immediately benefitted them. Whereas many small IT services, software, and hardware companies have yet to rebound strongly. Two widespread problems here have been supply chain disruption, and customers deferring investment decisions. But these problems are temporary, and indeed are already diminishing. Which could create a very good recovery opportunity for investors. In fact, it wouldn't surprise me if the IT software and services sector becomes the best performer of 2022. So OSI could benefit from both growing business and improving sector sentiment, which would be an ideal environment in which to raise more funds.

OSI is one of those rare shares where the more I research it, the more I like it. Which his quite unusual: it's more common to uncover aspects that make me less keen on a share than otherwise. Many investors won't do this level of in-depth research into a share, and therefore won't have a full appreciation of it - good or bad. But true value always seems to out eventually in the end.

But it would be even more impressive if Darktrace interrupted an attack WITHIN a second, as opposed to seconds - plural. Computers work so quickly that seconds can actually be a relatively long time. Still, the tweeted 'every second' statistic does bring home the sheer frequency of cyber-attacks, and of the compelling need to employ top-quality PAM like OSI's.

HTTP://www.darktrace.com/en/ DARK's software can interrupt a cyber attack in seconds, but in that time a lot of damage can already have been done.

Good PAM is not optional. Every organization is subject to regulation, such as GDPR, PCI DSS or Sarbanes-Oxley. They often need to implement best practices such as Cyber Essentials or ISO 27001 to improve customer service and reduce risk. Every one of those standards has a requirement to manage privileged access. Osirium has several whitepapers to show how PAM is relevant to ISO270001, Cyber Essentials and Digital Security and Protection in the NHS. For all these reasons, PAM is not an optional purchase. The decision for the company is how to acquire and implement the best PAM for their organization in the most cost-effective and business-enhancing manner possible. ...

"Could Darktrace shares rapidly rebound after today's 5% drop? As the AI cybersecurity firm’s 180-day lock-up period ends, one of its largest shareholders, Deep Defence, has sold a third of its holdings totalling 11 million shares. And there could be more to follow. Charles Archer | Financial Writer, London | Publication date: Wednesday 03 November 2021 14:20 Darktrace (LON: DARK) shares have been volatile since the company’s IPO on 30 April. Originally offered at 250p each, strong investor demand saw the Darktrace share price surge 294% to a high of 985p by 23 September. But over the past fortnight, Darktrace shares have fallen by more than a third to 600p today. The company’s current £4.2 billion market cap means that it’s still worth more than double its initial IPO price. However, with the lock-up period now concluded, there might be further falls to come. Darktrace investors It’s not just the end of the lock-up period that’s hurt the Darktrace share price. On 25 October, an analyst note entitled ‘Reality Check’ from Peel Hunt said that there was a ‘disconnect between the valuation and the ultimate retail opportunity’ of the company. Worryingly, it said that some customers of the AI cybersecurity firm had described its technology as ‘snake oil.’ It downgraded Darktrace to a sell position and gave it a target price of 473p.

08/11/2021 07:00 RNSNON Osirium Technologies PLC Channel Partner and Marketing Update Growth in channel partners and geographies Osirium Technologies plc (AIM: OSI), a leading vendor of cloud-based cybersecurity software, today provides an update on its channel partner network and digital marketing strategy. The Group is pleased to announce contract wins in new territories including its first deals in the Netherlands, Ireland and Singapore, achieved through Osirium's channel partner network. These contracts underline the Group's 'land and expand' strategy which focuses on increasing contract values and device numbers following initial engagement. Osirium now has over 30 active partners across the UK and internationally, with a growing interest in new geographies including North America and South Asia. As a result, management expects the number of sales generated through these channels will increase in line with the growth in awareness of, and demand for, Privileged Access Security. With a reduction in the number of large trade shows typically seen before the pandemic, Osirium's pivot to digital marketing and virtual events has increased in traction and continues to drive new business in conjunction with its indirect sales arm. The Group is pleased to report it reached the total number of leads generated in 2020 by the end of September 2021 and has stepped up the automation of information campaigns via email. With a strengthening sales channel domestically and internationally, along with continued new business momentum in line with the Group's strategy, the Board remain confident in the Osirium's growth prospects. David Guyatt, CEO of Osirium, commented: "The indirect sales arm facilitated by our channel partner network represents a core element of our strategy, enabling us to access a wide range of geographies and scale further. Alongside this, our digital marketing strategy continues to accelerate and generate new leads. Importantly, our 'land and expand' strategy facilitates increased engagement with these new customers and provides the solid foundations for significant contracts." https://uk.advfn.com/stock-market/london/osirium-technologies-OSI/share-news/Osirium-Technologies-PLC-Channel-Partner-and-Marke/86484494

"29 OCTOBER 2021 MSPs and Ransomware - the weakest link Mark Warren The Risk of Supply Chain Ransomware It's an old proverb, but "a chain is as strong as its weakest link" still holds very true, especially when considering the possible ways an attacker can infect an organisation. Quite rightly, much attention has been paid to the risks of unwitting staff being the victims of increasingly complex phishing attacks. It's too easy to dupe someone to click an unsafe link or install an infected piece of software. There are many ways to defend against that weakness, including better training and software the limits the risk of installing malware. MSPs are a prime target But an increasingly rich vein of attack opportunities is the IT supply chain. That's a wide-ranging and complex set of potential attack vectors. For example, it may include the organisation's HR system supplier, the managers of their air conditioning, the host of their web server, and hundreds of other suppliers and partners involved in a modern business. For good business reasons, it's attractive to let external partners provide these specialists systems and services, so it's a fast-growing pattern for most IT teams to outsource systems that used to run on-premises. But, that growing dependency is also increasing the risk of attack. Managed Service Providers (MSPs) are a rich target for attackers. It's just a question of economics: if they can infect one MSP, then all that MSP's customers become victims of the attack without more effort. Attacks via an MSP isn't a theoretical risk; here's a recent example of how the group behind the Solarwinds attack are shifting their focus towards MSPs. "This recent activity is another indicator that Russia is trying to gain long-term, systematic access to a variety of points in the technology supply chain and [to] establish a mechanism for surveilling -- now or in the future -- targets of interest to the Russian government" - Microsoft. Recently, Andy Harris wrote about this risk of the "buffalo jump" waterfall effect of an attack on an MSP. How Prepared are IT Teams? To understand the situation better, Osirium commissioned independent research to gather data which you can download in this free executive summary: "The Ransomware Index - Supplier Risk." The research shows that IT teams understand the risks to some degree but aren't yet doing enough to formalise their suppliers' protection requirements. Encouragingly, some fundamental protection can make a big difference. Crucially, access to the MSP's systems needs protection using access management. Privileged Access Management (PAM) ensures only the right people have access to those systems such as client management systems, remote access servers, databases and much more. You can find out how here. ‍For MSPs, the research shows that ransomware protection is a hot topic for their clients, so they should take more action to improve that service. It can also be a competitive differentiation in a fast-growing market. If you'd like to know more, please get in touch. The first part of the Ransomware Index focused on protecting backups to minimise damage from an attack and be ready to recover when an attack happens. That report is still available here."

Passwords are a risk area for ransomware attacks - "Cybersecurity Hackers Breached Colonial Pipeline Using Compromised Password By William Turton and Kartikay Mehrotra 4 June 2021, 20:58 BST" https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2021-06-04/hackers-breached-colonial-pipeline-using-compromised-password And Osirium’s privileged access management solution, Osirium PAM, can help - "23 OCTOBER 2015 Separating people from passwords Andy Harris ... Rigorous passwords policies are creating the exact opposite of their intended outcome ... The solution: separate people from passwords Having read the above, you may be thinking you can’t trust your staff with passwords at all, but the vast majority of your users will use online banking. You can be sure that where their own money is concerned they chose strong passwords. The banking systems do not ask for password changes every 30 days, yet historically, banking systems have proven secure. Online banking authentications systems use a second factor of authentication. The key point here is that banking systems seek to prove identity. Identity is the real key to security. In the corporate world, we really need to know who did what, where and when. Identity is the real key to security. In the corporate world, we really need to know who did what, where and when. Osirium’s privileged access management solution, Osirium PAM, works on the principle of separating people from passwords. Users still keep their personal passwords, and identity can be enhanced by two-factor authentication. Profiles then map identities into specific roles on specific devices, applications or systems. This means that your users can reach the systems that they need to, but they can get no further. Now users cannot use a connection to one system to jump to another. Using this approach creates real accountability. Whereas before you could have a situation where a team of people could all use a shared password to systems, now you have identities having sessions on systems. This provides businesses with the ability to know who did what, and when, meaning there’s nowhere to hide wrongdoings. This simple approach to managing privileged accounts provides a wealth of security and significantly reduces your companies attack surface, by taking the passwords you want to protect most out of the hands of your staff.

Transmit Security said it has a pre-money valuation of $2.2 billion, and will use the new funds to expand its reach and investing in key global areas to grow the organization. Ultimately, however, the funding round will help the company to accelerate its mission to help the world go passwordless.

"Global Ransomware Damage Costs Predicted To Reach $20 Billion (USD) By 2021 Ransomware is expected to attack a business every 11 seconds by the end of 2021 – Steve Morgan, Editor-in-Chief Northport, N.Y. – Oct. 21, 2019 Ransomware — a malware that infects computers (and mobile devices) and restricts their access to files, often threatening permanent data destruction unless a ransom is paid — has reached epidemic proportions globally and is the “go-to method of attack” for cybercriminals. A 2017 report from Cybersecurity Ventures predicted ransomware damages would cost the world $5 billion in 2017, up from $325 million in 2015 — a 15X increase in just two years. The damages for 2018 were predicted to reach $8 billion, and for 2019 the figure is $11.5 billion. The latest prediction is that global ransomware damage costs will reach $20 billion by 2021 – which is 57X more than it was in 2015. This makes ransomware the fastest growing type of cybercrime. The 2015 to 2019 ransomware damage cost predictions have been corroborated by media outlets, academia, industry experts, numerous cybersecurity firms, and cybercrime fighters globally. “Ransomware attacks are in the process of morphing from spray-and-pray phishing blasts to highly targeted and extremely damaging network-wide infections that can cause days or weeks of downtime for a whole organization,” says Stu Sjouwerman, founder and CEO at KnowBe4, a company that specializes in training employees on how to detect and respond to ransomware attacks. “It is an unfortunate fact of life that ransomware is here to stay and that traditional software-based endpoint protection is not able to protect well against this type of malware.” ..."

It suggests that OSI has a very good working relationship with its partners, and takes a proactive role in facilitating the reselling of OSI's solutions. And the two companies will be able to share costs for this exhibition, which is further evidence that OSI runs a tight ship, making every penny count. "EMT Distribution is a worldwide technology distribution firm focusing on information security, consulting services, network management and technology education. Resellers see emt Distribution as a preferred distributor of choice due to their expertise in product sales, implementation,services and support. With over 30 years of experience across 5 continents and with loyal vendor relationships, emt Distribution brings cutting edge technologies, services and support to its partners and customers."
