Synchronised Security: Cybersecurity as a system
Traditionally, security solutions were bought separately, often from different suppliers, this is no longer the most effective way. By using our partner Sophos for antivirus, firewalls, email scanning and more we can deliver a synchronised solutions. The individual products form part of a system that ‘talks to each other’, sharing information on threats and responding to incidents automatically.
We provide vulnerability scanning (or penetration testing) to test your computer systems, networks or web applications in search of security vulnerabilities which could be exploited in a cyber attack. We can then use the report generated to make the necessary improvements to your IT to make sure your business is as secure as you can be.
What’s more, to achieve Cyber Essentials certification, you must perform this scanning on any external facing addresses that your office uses – this is because it allows you to spot weaknesses in your defenses.
