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 discovered a multi-layered defense is your best protection. What does that mean? 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, anti-virus, 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 security information. We also provide a North-American 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 employees, supplemental staff or any 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 the HIPAA privacy and security requirements. We offer HIPAA compliant IT support and services.
We can do a quick security check or a more in-depth security risk assessment to answer this question. We can inspect your network, review your business practices and help you remediate critical issues.
Is your business an easy target for cyber criminals?
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.
CMIT Secure offers complete flexibility, allowing you to choose the levels of cybersecurity protection that are right for your business and your pocketbook. We always start with CMIT Marathon and CMIT Guardian as our core solution and layer additional capabilities as you need.
A Security Risk Assessment gives you a deeper understanding of how you protect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your data. We examine your information security business practices, your policies, procedures, staff training, and survey your technical infrastructure, including the network. With this assessment, you will know what areas you need to improve and have an action plan to take the necessary steps.
Anti-malware, anti-virus, and anti-spam protection is your first level of protection, provided as part of CMIT Marathon and CMIT Anti-Spam. CMIT Marathon and CMIT Anti-Spam are a prerequisite for CMIT Secure. The anti-malware and anti-virus are updated automatically by CMIT Marathon. Anti-malware and anti-virus are mandatory for all systems. CMIT Anti-Spam is your first defense against phishing and other email-borne attacks.
DNS filtering is another essential layer in the CMIT Secure solution. DNS filtering protects any device connecting to your network, whether it is in your office or traveling. DNS filtering blocks new viruses and threats that anti-malware or anti-virus software may 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.
The Intelligent Firewall protects your business from sophisticated external threats. Our firewalls are continuously updated and employ machine learning algorithms to prevent malicious attacks. Our firewalls intercept encrypted applications, provide real-time protection against cyber exploits, vulnerabilities and other threats. Our firewalls are monitored 24/7.
Security Information and Event Monitoring (SIEM) is an advanced trusted method of examining security events and network traffic to determine whether seemingly unrelated activity represents a pattern of a sophisticated cyber threat. We inspect device logs, user activity, and data patterns and from this information can raise alerts and alarms. We maintain log information from your systems and firewalls so 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-American based team of over 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 on 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 and 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-b encryption algorithm. We recommend data encryption for clients with personally identifiable information because it keeps hackers from obtaining any information which could be monetized. Data encryption is easy and does not impact staff productivity. It’s a prudent protection when privacy and security matter.
