The risk of a cyber-attack has never been higher in today’s fast-paced, modern world.
With criminals becoming more and more sophisticated with the techniques and methods they use to carry out attacks; many traditional cyber security measures have unfortunately become outdated. This has left many businesses vulnerable to the risk of sensitive and private information being leaked into the wrong hands, which has the potential of massive disruption of daily activities and day-to-day running, as well as hefty regulatory fines for your business.
To protect your business and limit the risk of potential damage cyber-criminals can cause, it is crucial that you integrate a suite of cyber security measures tailored to your business needs and operations. That’s where we step in. We are among the top cyber security companies in London, and our range of security services are indispensable in helping to prevent your organisation, or business, from falling victim to a cyber-attack.
Antivirus forms a core part of any security strategy. It helps to identify and protect against viruses, spyware, ransomware, and all other types of malware.
Strong antivirus also blocks unsafe links, downloads, and email attachments, and scans your PC for performance problems.
All in all, it works to ensure the safest day-to-day running of your software and machine against a cyber security attack.
A crucial aspect of ensuring cyber security, a secure firewall constantly monitors incoming and outgoing network traffic from your computer. Firewalls either permit or block data packets based on a set of security rules.
The purpose of this is to establish a barrier between your internal network and any external sources (which could be cyber threats from the internet), making sure any dangerous traffic is blocked, traffic that may contain viruses or have been created by hackers looking to damage your system.
By using multiple firewalls provided by different vendors, we are able to create an intelligent form of cyber security that has additional layers of protection, making it far more difficult for criminals to violate your defences and access your systems.
INTRUSION DETECTION AND PREVENTION
Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems are broad terms that simply put, are cyber security measures that block threats to your system. Intrusion detection is reactive, it identifies and mitigates ongoing attacks, weeding out existing malware such as backdoors. It also detects social engineering such as phishing and prevents your software from being attacked, protecting your sensitive information.
Intrusion prevention is proactive, and pre-emptively blocks application attacks. It includes remote file inclusions that facilitate malware injections which can access private databases.
Used together, they protect your private and sensitive information.
INTEGRATION WITH ACTIVE DIRECTORY
Integration with Microsoft Active Directory or Azure Active Directory helps you to organise your company’s users by centralising the management of users, computers, and other objects within a network. It links to existing systems which allows you to articulate specific privileges for different roles and groups. Centrally controlling permissions in this way ensures that users have access only to the tools and systems that they require.
Active directory works by checking the submitted username and password when a user logs on, and determines whether this user has permissions to specific systems. Overall, the primary function of this is to authorise users within a windows domain, protecting your system.
APPLICATION AND WEB FILTERING
Application and Web Filtering actively sets and implements policies for which sites and applications users can access. This can be integrated with Active Directory, allowing you to set different permission levels for different user groups.
Web and URL filtering proactively blocks certain websites by not allowing their browsers to load pages from these sites, preventing users from gaining access, whether for security or productivity reasons.
Used together, Application and Web Filters make decisions based on the rules set in place by your company with our assistance, making it flexible and bespoke, based on your specific cyber security needs.
DATA LOSS PREVENTION
Data Loss Prevention is an effective set of cyber security tools and processes that ensure your sensitive data is not misused, lost, or accessed by unauthorised users. It makes sure that sensitive, private, or critical information is not sent beyond your corporate network by filtering emails and other outgoing communications.
It looks for specific types of data such as bank account numbers or other sensitive customer information, preventing any unwanted data leakage from occurring. This ensures that your legal duty of data protection is upheld, working with other complementary controls, and preventing the accidental exposure of confidential information.
Wherever you store your data, Data Loss Prevention monitors it and significantly reduces the risk of data loss.
CYBER SECURITY CONSULTANCY
Monitoring and reporting
Monitoring and Reporting is a crucial part of cyber security and is simply the process of detecting cyber threats and data breaches, allowing you to have visibility of application usage, web traffic, and incident reports. This enables you to monitor threats to your systems, and proactively take steps to prevent them, meaning that cyber-attacks are detected in their infancy and responded to before they are able to cause disruption or damage to your system. Analysis of this data also helps highlight the origin and impact of any attacks, as well as near misses, which enables you to make continuous improvements to your systems, so they aren’t compromised again in the future.
Continuous security monitoring helps you to detect a broad range of threats, reducing the time it takes to respond to threats, and most importantly it supports you to comply with industry and regulatory requirements.
In order to protect your business and prevent attacks, Simply Solve provide the highest level of cyber security on offer compared to other IT companies based in London.
We offer packages to suit your specific requirements and needs, saving you time, money, and most importantly preventing the risk of your sensitive information being leaked and the negative impact that that can have on your business.
