Commenting on the case, Heavy Reading Chief Analyst Patrick Donegan said: "There are two lessons from this attack and many others like them. The first one is timeless. Usernames and passwords have to be replaced with more accurate and reliable authentication leveraging biometrics and user behavior analytics. The second is only starting to gather momentum. Businesses -- whether in the telecom or other sectors -- need to have a clear plan and response resources to draw upon for when they suffer a serious security breach." Donegan is hosting the Service Provider & Enterprise Security Strategies 2016 event in New York on December 1. (See Polymorphic Attacks Reshape Security Landscape.)
