8 Ways to Prevent Replay Attacks

How to Stop the Interception and Retransmission of Data

Around 16% of all global companies work remotely, with no indication the trend will slow anytime soon. While remote working can save companies money in the long run, the lack of digital security used to secure remote networks creates an issue that’s incredibly costly. 

A rise in remote working means many companies face increased cyber threats and attacks. Unsecured public networks, weak security measures, and use of personal devices for remote access create vulnerabilities. Cybercriminals use replay attacks to exploit these security holes, intercepting traffic to steal important company data. 

Thankfully, you can prevent replay attacks. We’ve rounded up the best ways to secure your networks (both remote and physical), so your company’s sensitive data won’t end up in the hands of cybercriminals.

How to Secure Remote Access Networks

Most companies and employees don’t use security software that’s capable of safeguarding remote access to critical network resources. When companies do use a Secure Remote Access (SRA) method, it’s generally one of the following: 

Virtual Private Network (VPN).

Two-Factor Authentication (TFA).

Device Risk Posture Check (RPC).

Zero-Trust Network (ZTN) access.

Each of these SRA methods has its benefits but, for now, companies prefer using a VPN over all others. Yet, according to cybertalk.org, 11% of companies don’t use any type of SRA method. A total lack of network security measures for remote workers leaves the door wide open for cybercriminals to perform replay attacks
