Data Loss Prevention
The prevalence of electronic communications and the massive volume of different forms of data exchanged between organizations in the course of daily operations, present a high risk of information loss. Subsequently, this risk exposes the organization in terms of compliance, but most importantly, in terms of loss of reputation and corporate value.
Data are the fuel and proof of an organization’s growth and success. Therefore many times information should be shared with others or processed by others in order to further promote and provide value to the organization.
Data Security Lifecycle
The focus of information security spending has been for many years on addressing mainly “Noisy Threats” (noticed/detected), which directly affected the normal operation of an organization in regards to its internet presence and email communication.
Database Auditing & Protection
Effective protection of the network perimeter and the fortification against external attacks has traditionally been in the center of organizations’ attention.
Denial of Service Prevention
Traditional perimeter security such as firewalls and intrusion prevention systems (IPS) are essential elements of a layered-defense strategy, but are not designed to solve the DDoS problem. Firewalls enforce policies that govern access to data center resources and IPS block malware that can infect end systems or exploit known vulnerabilities.
Email Security and Encryption
As a critical means of business communication, email offers the ability to instantly share information both within the organization as well as outside.
Today’s demanding business landscape has introduced the need for accessing and using sensitive information while outside the organization’s buildings and security protection, leaving such information exposed to Internet security as well as physical risks.
Once a corporate workstation and/or server, either virtual and/or physical is connected to the network, whether this network is directly connected to the Internet or not, it is susceptible to threats and attacks by unauthorized users.
Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems
Whilst firewalls and anti-virus/anti-malware solutions have traditionally been the major parts of an organization’s security infrastructure, the fast pace at which new system vulnerabilities are found and exploits for gaining unauthorized access into systems and networks are developed, necessitate the introduction of equally fast and proactive means of protecting valuable organizational resources.
Log Collection & Event Management
As threats and attacks on network assets increase in frequency as well as complexity and sophistication, the need of organizations to be proactive in tackling these challenges has become vital.
Mobile Device Management & Security
In an era where mobile smart devices such as smartphones and tablets are fast becoming indispensable tools of personal as well as professional use, organizations are faced with multi-dimensional challenges.
Next Generation Firewalls
Whether a large organization or a small medium business, the risks are similar. Once a workstation and/or server, either virtual and/or physical is connected to the network, whether this network is directly connected to the Internet or not, it is susceptible to threats and attacks by unauthorized users.
Point to Point Encryption
As business operations and companies expand, the need for secure information sharing between headquarters and branch offices becomes a critical part of operations.
Secure Remote Access
To stay competitive, organizations provide their employees, partners, and vendors with around the clock remote access, to corporate sensitive information and resources, from a diverse range of mobile devices (such as tablets and smart phones) and diverse locations.
Securing Virtual Environments
In recent years, the increasing pressure on CIOs to enhance the financial efficiency of organizational IT infrastructures, has led them to introduce the concept of computer system and network device virtualization higher and higher on their priority list.
User Activity Monitoring
Whereas most organizations are well aware of the security threats posed by external sources, they often overlook threats that come from within the organization. Therefore, while employees, in the course of performing their duties, are given access to organizational network resources including sensitive and valuable information, management is not privy of the threats inherent to providing such access privileges.
Web Application Firewall
Any business which runs a website or deploys any type of web application is susceptible to a number of attacks and vulnerabilities which can put the organization’s information security and reputation at stake.
Web Browsing & Content Security
An organization’s ability to control access to malicious web sites and prevent inappropriate content from entering and leaving its network is critical in minimizing business risk and maximizing employee productivity.
