Managed security services

Just like a physical security system, an IT security system should be regularly checked to ensure that it is working effectively, it hasn’t been breached and that it is able to deal with newly discovered threats. However, unlike physical threats, IT security threats can develop much more quickly, spreading across the globe in a matter of hours from the time that they’re first discovered.

This fast-paced nature can be a major challenge for organisations of all sizes. For those without any dedicated IT staff, identifying and responding to threats is largely luck; hoping that the security systems that are in place are installed correctly, are up to date and have the functionality to be able to deal with new threats. And for those with IT staff, ensuring that sufficient security staff are available to deal with incidents whenever they occur and that they are aware of the latest threats and how to deal with them can be a very difficult prospect.

This is why many companies trust a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) to either fully manage, or assist their staff to manage, their security systems.

Firewall management

Firewalls are a key aspect of network security, ensuring that only authorised data can enter and leave the network and that any security threats are removed or blocked. We are able to maintain, monitor and react to issues on firewalls from:

Our monitoring teams can monitor your firewalls for threats and take action against them.

  • Checkpoint
  • Cisco
  • Fortinet
  • Sonicwall

Unified Security Management

USM is a method analysing data from multiple data sources (such as device, server and application logs) to identify and deal with threats. Our USM systems can collect data from your devices and either inform your technology staff or respond according to rules of engagement which have been agreed beforehand.

Security Intelligence and Event Management (SIEM)

Combining security event monitoring with intelligence on the latest threats across an organisation, Security Intelligence and Event Management (SIEM) seeks to make sense of security across an entire organisation. By collecting, processing and correlating data, our management teams can gain insights into weaknesses and attempted attacks to ensure that they don’t lead to a security breach.

Antivirus and anti-malware management

Managed antivirus allows us to monitor and respond to virus and malware outbreaks as they happen

When a virus or malware outbreak occurs, speed is of the essence. The type and source of the malware must be identified and infected systems must be cleaned, and infected data recovered, before the infection can spread to other systems. Our antivirus and anti-malware management service allows us to deploy, manage and update your protection, allowing your staff to safely concentrate on business.
