What is Cyber Security?
Cyber Security by definition is the art of protecting your organisation from cyber threats and cyber attacks. The cyber security challenge is easier once you understand the key cyber security essentials. We have provided an introduction to Cyber Security below.
The first step is knowing which Cyber Threats are the main cyber security risks. This includes malicious internet content, emails threats such as phishing attacks or malicious links and attachments, and malware such as viruses and ransomware.
The importance of cyber security means that we should implement systems to deflect these cyber threats before they even reach your users and devices. This is one of the most essential cyber security facts. Think of this approach as your 'shield'.
In order to avoid the impact of a full-blown cyber attack, it is also important to improve your resilience to cyber threats that breach your perimeter defences. In the industry, we call this attack surface reduction. Think of this part as your 'armour'.
Cyber Security Companies
Cyber Security companies in the UK are commonplace, but not all Cyber Security UK solutions on offer are equal. By working with us, you can be confident that our Cyber Security analyst and Cyber Security consultant services provide good advice.
We will help you to design and implement an effective Cyber Security policy. Cyber Security policies should be designed to block common cyber threats - reduce the attack surface of your organisation - and limit the scope of cyber attacks.
Working with us will give you a useful cyber security risk assessment which will help you to introduce critical cyber security risk management policies. Our cyber security assessment and cyber security architect services can equip you for the future.
When you choose a Cyber Security company, then we recommend that you at least choose from Cyber Security providers that work with the best Cyber Security systems from the world's best Cyber Security vendors. Here are our Cyber Security partners:
Internet Security is one of the most important and effective Cyber Security tools within your Cyber Security strategy. This is because the majority of cyber attacks involve the internet at some stage which makes web security essential. Cisco for example estimate that more than 80% of Cyber Attacks use DNS at some part of the 'kill chain'.
Our solution can improve internet security inside and outside of the office. Our main internet security solution is Cisco Umbrella Insights. Cisco Umbrella Insights is a leading option and we believe that it is the best internet security solution software available. We have numerous accreditations with Cisco that make us the perfect provider to deliver your Cisco Umbrella solution.
We also offer WebTitan from TitanHQ. This is a cheaper solution for organisations that have lower cyber security budgets. Both Cisco Umbrella Insights and TitanHQ WebTitan have monthly billing. .If you cannot afford a separate internet security solution, you can also find Bitdefender Internet Security or Trend Micro Internet Security within some of our endpoint security products
Internet Security is also integrated within many of our Network Security Products. For example - Meraki Firewall with Advanced Security, and Check Point Network Security as a Service (NSaaS).
Cloud Security is becoming increasingly important, as data and workloads migrate to the cloud. Cloud data security is critical, and for Office 365 security we have experience with implementing a wide variety of Microsoft Security solutions.
We also offer Trend Micro Cloud App Security. This provides integrated Microsoft 365 security by adding Trend Micro Malware Scanning and other security features. This includes OneDrive Security and SharePoint Security.
Additionally, one of the most important ways to secure your cloud data is to implement Multi-Factor Authentication, or MFA for short. This is much more effective than password security. We offer Cisco Duo Security which is a top product for MFA and SSO.
Information Security is paramount, especially with GDPR requirements. As well as protecting data from cyber attacks, we can also help to introduce effective DLP (Data Loss Prevention) systems. This can stop accidental data security issues or insider threat.
An important part of an effective information security strategy is an effective backup and disaster recovery solution. Our Cloud Backup services can help you to safeguard your valuable data including emails and files stored both on-premises and in the cloud.
Endpoint Security is your last line of defence against cyber attacks. If a cyber threat has made it through all of your other cyber defence layers - email security, internet security, and network security - then your endpoint security solution needs to work. Endpoint Protection is available from many different vendors so it can be difficult to know which vendor to choose from.
However, we have chosen Bitdefender GravityZone as our primary solution. This is because it constantly performs as the best endpoint security solution on the market under independent testing. Bitdefender EDR - endpoint detection and response - can be added for increased capabilities and insight.
For customers who prefer a simpler endpoint security products with arguably better web content filtering capabilities, we also offer Trend Micro Worry-Free Business Security Services Standard. Trend Micro are the largest independent security vendor in the world, and their products also perform consistently well under independent testing.
We also offer patch management and update management which is essential for any effective endpoint security policy.
