The adoption of new channels for the company (Microsoft Teams, OneDrive, and SharePoint) causes a significant loophole in the organizations’ security. Mistakenly considered safe, CISOs and IT experts don’t take any special actions to secure these channels, although they are extremely vulnerable to content-based attacks. With the company’s sudden shift to remote working the IT and Security teams said that they had to “enable our workers to share content and collaborate from remote without the fear of being compromised, however, we knew there were gaps that Microsoft was not dealing with.”
Having been a “one-stop-shop” of Microsoft products, the company had moved within the last year to the cloud. The company was using Teams, OneDrive, and SharePoint in order for their employees to collaborate and communicate. The users were not using these products too much until the COVID-19 situation began and the company had to instantly pivot to remote-working. With the sudden remote-working environment, the IT saw a significant and instant increase in the usage of these communication channels. As a result, the IT and Security team realized the potential risk for this new attack vector and needed a solution that they could install seamlessly, quickly and without losing functionality.
“From starting the POC on live traffic, I quickly realized how easy it was for attackers to shift the same complex email-borne attack that we are used to seeing, into a simple OneDrive attack”.
