More effective with monitoring
As more business is done in the cyber landscape, companies are becoming reliant on multiple service providers to ensure adequate protection for the business, its data and users. However, this begs the question. With so many different service providers, how do businesses ensure the security controls in place are effective?
Visibility into the full cyber landscape of a business is vital in ensuring effective security. With full visibility, businesses can better understand the security in place, how the various technologies work together, and identify any potential risk areas. How is this visibility achieved? Through monitoring services such as the Securicom Monitor Secure service.
“Monitor Secure is provided to any size business as a 24 hours, seven days a week, 365 days a year service,” Richard Broeke, Securicom Managing Director says. “Through this service any detected behaviour or traffic that appears out of the ordinary or is potentially dangerous is flagged, interrogated by our skilled security engineers, and (where appropriate) brought to the attention of the client or their designated technical personnel to investigate and remediate.”
A collector is installed, which receives security logs from all the technology within the business that serves a security function. These logs are processed on collection and the information correlated and analysed by the Securicom systems. Processes log data in real time using thousands of concurrent rules. This means that detection and alerting occurs when processed, not waiting for a scheduled search for detection. The service can be delivered either as a network/endpoint sensor or utilising feeds from existing security technologies, such as firewalls.
“Monitor Secure gives the business owner peace of mind that any undesirable activities are detected and addressed prior to data being removed from the environment,” Richard says. He adds: “With more than 20 years of experience in the cybersecurity industry, our team has the skills and knowledge to better protect your business,” Richard concludes.
