Many small business owners often select off-the-shelf IT security software installed by one-time vendors. They believe that this secures their systems. But with limited security expertise, resources, and budgets, small businesses like yours will be find it tough to strengthen and manage your cyber defence. Employing managed security service providers (MSSPs) to monitor IT networks, detect threats, and manage systems ensures up-to-date security infrastructure. Your small business will be better protected from cyber risks than others that manage security in-house with insufficient resources and expertise. The Different Types of Cyber Security Solutions, that we offer are:

  • Identity and Access Management (IAM): Authentication services are critical for identifying and controlling user roles. By limiting and tracking employee access, you can ensure that potentially malicious users don't gain access to your computer systems.
  • Risk and compliance management: Companies today need to concern themselves with regulatory compliance, risk management, and security auditing.
  • Encryption : Encrypted data is protected data. Even if encrypted data is stolen, it cannot be accessed.
  • Data Loss Prevention (DLP) : Data Loss Prevention solutions are dedicated to ensuring that data remains available and accurate.
  • Unified Threat Management (UTM) : A UTM solution often encompasses multiple of the above and below solutions, in a single all-around resource that is designed to both detect and mitigate threats as they come in.
  • Firewall : Firewalls control incoming and outgoing connections, to better protect the network from potentially malicious actions.
  • Antivirus/antimalware solutions : Antivirus and antimalware solutions scan a computer system looking for known threats.
  • Intrusion Detection System (IDS)/Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) : These systems work to identify any potentially hostile actions.
  • Disaster recovery : Companies have to be able to recover from a disaster quickly. Disaster recovery solutions facilitate the process of re-deploying data and requisitioning replacement resources.
  • Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation : A DDoS attack remains one of the most popular and devastating attacks on an enterprise, potentially disrupting its entire network or taking down its website. Advanced security solutions can now detect and mitigate DDoS attacks.
  • Web filtering : Web filtering services protect employees from accidentally accessing potentially harmful services, providing an additional layer of security regardless of their browsing habits.
  • Use of AI:
    • Email filtering : Email services use artificial intelligence to filter incoming emails. Users can train their spam filters by marking emails as “spam”.
    • Personalization : Online services use artificial intelligence to personalize your experience. Services, like Amazon or Netflix, “learn” from your previous purchases and the purchases of other users in order to recommend relevant content for you.
    • Fraud detection : Banks use artificial intelligence to determine if there is strange activity on an account. Unexpected activity, such as foreign transactions, could be flagged by the algorithm.
    • Speech recognition : Applications use artificial intelligence to optimize speech recognition functions. Examples include intelligent personal assistants, e.g. Amazon’s “Alexa” or Apple’s “Siri”.
