Incident Detection and Response
The threats to your critical business data are proliferating at astounding rates. From advanced persistent threats (APTs), to sophisticated phishing attacks and attempts to breach the perimeter of the network, cyber attackers are continually looking for ways to attack your users and systems platforms to run their malware virus in order to gain full access to your data. Detecting and eliminating these malware attacks before the incident happens is the way to effectively safeguard your information, brand and organization.
Are you ready for a security audit? Virtually every regulation, standard or best practice connected to the development of information security mandates that organizations must take control of their endpoints, regardless of whether those assets are servers, workstations, laptops, tablets or other devices. PCI DSS, HIPAA, FISMA, SOX frameworks, and both ISO27001 and COBIT reiterate that enterprises have not only a fully complete, accurate and up-to-date inventory of end points, but also persist that they constantly maintain control of programs, devices and data associated with them.
Shadow IT Discovery
What is on your network? Having knowing of what IT assets your organization has will go far beyond the physical network. From rogue applications initiated by users, to personal removable media and devices that are not supported by IT, there are many ways that your critical business data can be jeopardised by technologies that your IT and security teams can not recognize or have never evaluated and approved – and they’re inside your corporate firewall, right now.
Software License and Asset Monitoring
Do you trust your users to accurately use their licensed software? According to the Business Software Alliance (BSA), 43% of software installed on personal devices around the world – including servers, workstations, laptops and tablets at organizations of all sizes – is not correctly licensed. Incorrectly licensed software has large implications for the enterprise, not only in terms of potential fines and penalties if the issue is discovered but also in view of information security impacts. The BSA identified that 64% of users indicated that they fear an increased likelihood of unauthorized access or loss of data from trojaned software if it were installed on their networks and systems.
Who are your privileged users? According to a major industry analyst firm, over 78% of organizations have systems that contain permissions greater than what is needed for employees to do their job. User identities – the accounts and credentials employees use to access critical business data –more than necessary privileges and permissions are the gateway to insider security threats and identities that are no longer used but are still actively representing a critical foothold that external attackers and malware can use to compromise systems, services and data.
Endpoint Vulnerability Detection
Got CVE? Detecting and alleviating known vulnerabilities on servers, workstations and other endpoints is one of the most critical aspects of reducing the attack surface that malware or an active attacker can use to gain access into your network. Finding vulnerabilities before they happen goes beyond simply scanning for services that are exposed to the network successful vulnerability detection also implicates deep inspection of end points to verify that they are configured securely and correctly.
