Multi-layered Cybersecurity Protection
Multi-layered Cybersecurity Protection
How do you protect your business from cybersecurity threats? We’ve studied the evolving threat landscape and developed a multi-layered defense that serves as your best protection. What does that mean? Put simply, that you don’t rely on one silver bullet or strategy to protect your IT infrastructure. Instead, you weave complimentary protections into a substantial and responsive defense.
We start with the fundamentals: a strong blocking or filtering strategy using anti-malware and anti-virus software, intelligent firewalls, cloud-based perimeter shields, and DNS filtering. For businesses with more advanced requirements, we examine security logs, specifically looking deep into security events and other information. We also provide a North America-based Security Operations Center staffed with security experts who analyze threats and execute corrective actions, much like our Network Operations Center does for routine network and system issues.
Then we add your human firewall: training for all members of your team, whether they are employees, supplemental staff, or other business partners with access to your systems. Next, we add additional login protection with two-factor authentication, password vaults, and single sign-on.
For those clients with regulatory requirements, we add data encryption, privacy and security assessments, and compliance program management. We specialize in supporting healthcare and adhere to privacy and security requirements with HIPAA-compliant IT support and services.
We can do a quick security check or a more in-depth risk assessment to answer that question. We inspect your network, review your business practices, and help you remediate critical issues.
Is your business an easy target for cybercriminals?
If you store credit card information or personal information, don’t take any chances. Give us 30 minutes and we can help you take the first step to protecting your business.
A Security Risk Assessment provides a deeper understanding of how you protect the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of your data. We examine your business practices, policies, procedures, and staff training, then survey your technical infrastructure, including your network. After this assessment, you will know what areas require improvement and be empowered to develop an action plan and take the necessary steps.
Anti-malware, anti-virus, and anti-spam software provides your first level of protection, packaged as part of CMIT Marathon and CMIT Anti-Spam, two prerequisites for CMIT Secure. CMIT Anti-Spam acts as your first defense against phishing and other email-borne attacks, while anti-malware and anti-virus software is updated automatically by CMIT Marathon.
DNS filtering provides another essential layer of the CMIT Secure solution. DNS filtering protects any device connected to your network, whether it’s in your office or on the road. DNS filtering blocks new viruses and threats that anti-malware or antivirus software might miss by preventing data from suspicious sources from accessing your network and computers. DNS filtering provides an essential layer of protection for those users with laptops, as it will protect machines away from your office network.
CMIT’s Intelligent Firewall protects your business from sophisticated external threats. Our firewalls are continuously updated and employ machine learning algorithms to prevent malicious attacks, intercepting encrypted applications and providing real-time protection against digital exploits, vulnerabilities, and other threats. Our firewalls are monitored 24/7.
Security Information and Event Monitoring (SIEM) is an advanced method of examining security events and network traffic to determine whether seemingly unrelated activity represents a pattern of a sophisticated cyberthreat. We inspect device logs, user activity, and data patterns, raising alerts and alarms and from this trusted information. We maintain log information from your systems and firewalls so that if you are attacked, you can provide this information to the proper authorities.
Our Security Operations Center analyzes SIEM information and the resulting alerts. This North America-based team of more than 100 security professionals watches over CMIT Solutions’ clients 24/7. We combine real-time data, third-party intelligence services, databases listing poor reputation or compromised servers, FBI security advisories and bulletins, as well as our own security research to drive the Security Operations Center. We provide real-time analytics and alerts as part of your security logs.
We provide two-factor authentication and single sign-on to both local and cloud applications with CMIT Secure Access. We make sure the right person accesses your systems by requiring a second step in the login process — username and password won’t give you access without a second secure confirmation step. It’s fast, easy, and flexible. You can use either a thumbprint, a code from a secure phone app, or a secure physical key.
We provide secure data encryption using a 256-bit encryption algorithm. We recommend data encryption for clients with personally identifiable information because it keeps hackers from obtaining any information that could be monetized. Data encryption is easy and does not impact staff productivity — a smart protection when privacy and security matter.
