TOKYO - March 2, 2021 - Internet Initiative Japan Inc. (TSE1: 3774), one of Japan's leading Internet access and comprehensive network solutions providers, today launched the IIJ Change Detection and Recovery Solution, which offers continuous website monitoring to instantly detect tampering and help quickly recover websites. By implementing this solution, customers can defend against web tampering threats and securely manage their corporate websites.
Web tampering is a cyber-attack in which a malicious attacker illegally manipulates a website to rewrites its content or installs unauthorized programs, and is regarded as one of the major security incidents. Past tampering cases have caused websites to redirect to phishing sites or infected visitor devices with a virus that collects secure data. In addition to this tangible damage, tampering has harmed some corporations’ image, making web tampering countermeasures indispensable for companies.
However, implementing such protective functions poses issues in terms of system construction and operational loads. Moreover, even if they implement tampering protections, website owners need time to identify which configuration or content files have been changed, making it difficult to rapidly recover normal operations. To address these issues, IIJ offers this solution for instant detection and recovery through persistent monitoring.
To use the solution, customers install a monitoring agent on the server that needs protection to monitor their websites around the clock. The agent constantly monitors content files, configurations, system files, and other OS events. It detects changes, additions, or deletions as they happen and notifies the set destination via email. After detecting any tampering, the solution automatically recovers the original files from backup data generated every tenth of a second, allowing customers to conduct safe and reliable operation.
The administration server operates on the IIJ cloud, reducing customer workloads in preparing, operating, and maintaining servers. By accessing the administration server IIJ provides, customers can monitor their websites, review detected tampering incidents, and configure backup settings. Vital information such as content data is managed on customer’s web server and not saved to the cloud-based administration server, so customers can use it with a sense of security.
Monitoring has three toggleable modes: notify, recover, and preserve. The preserve mode turns on logging for uploaded and altered files, allowing customers to easily preserve evidence of files uploaded without authorization. Customers can set the monitoring settings ON/OFF for each folder and the level of the monitoring mode in detail according to their usage.
