IT SECURITY

at the end of the day, The goals are simple: Safety and security

IT Security services

IT security is perhaps the number one challenge facing any business today, with ongoing threats to all aspects of an IT system a simple fact of life in our connected world. The internet has revolutionised the way and speed at which we communicate, our ability to send data and collaborate regardless of location and the way we carry out commerce, however, it also means that every aspect of modern business is vulnerable to malicious attack.

In this environment, having a viable and cost effective solution to protect your IT infrastructure and data from threat is imperative, our expertise in analysing and designing appropriate solutions for any system is second to none.

Covering all aspects of security, from network intrusion protection and DDOS style attacks, to network monitoring, web security and email protection, our expert analysis can create a security solution that covers your entire system, tailor made just for your organisation. Our specific antivirus solution in particular ensures complete, network wide protection rolled out from a central solution, in itself it can dramatically raise security in comparison to an ad-hoc per user method that may sometimes be implemented.

Creating a full, cohesive solution for IT security is only one side of appropriate security response of course, ongoing assessment of your system in relation to the current IT vulnerabilities is essential. In a world of ever changing risks, ensuring any response meets new risks as they appear should be a component of every IT security solution.

Our Security Consulting service offers a complete vulnerability and PCI assessment of your system, enabling comprehensive and clear reports identifying potential risk and the action required to minimise them. In tandem with this, our Penetration Testing provides ongoing data regarding the effectiveness of current security measures and the internal response of an attempt or breach.

Network Security

There are several elements to network security, but it is the most obvious option when discussion of IT security is mentioned. A successful network security solution need to be all encompassing, designed to monitor and protect the network from the various risks it faces. At Easy IT we take network protection as seriously as you, our highly skilled team can analyse your network for risks and vulnerabilities and produce a solution that accomplishes the goals you need, that of a safe, reliable and secure network, in a cost efficient but above all highly effective manner.

This holistic approach ensures that from its implementation, your network security solution from Easy IT is protecting your vital infrastructure and data fully, with ongoing monitoring and our acclaimed 24/7 support structure all in place to ensure smooth adoption and ongoing usage.

That 24/7 support is not an afterthought, as it can be sometimes, we recognise that the only successful security solution is one that is used, which is why we see our support system as an integral and vital component of that network security solution.

With this total solution approach, network security is significantly increased, our service includes three main elements of protection

Network Monitoring

Providing a complete monitoring solution for your network to ensure that possible security breaches are identified quickly and efficiently dealt with before exposure. Monitoring of network traffic is comprehensive, and is inclusive of all inbound, outbound and internal data transfer, analysed on the fly to provide true network status at any time.

Our network monitoring tools are easy to use yet provide comprehensive protection, with on-the-fly analysis providing a constant, up-to-date picture of the network status. This includes possibly unwanted connections both inbound and outbound, traffic routing efficiency and traffic volume, with anomalies in any of these positions highlighted immediately for further attention.

Full reporting is in place to identify all connections at any given point in time, with undesirable connections quickly highlighted, and all devices using the network readily identifiable, all designed to provide a comprehensive oversight of how the network is running and what it is being used for.

Our team of IT professionals provide complete, 24/7 support for this service just as all others, ensuring that the system is always operating efficiently and effectively for the safe operation of your network. Any user issues can be quickly resolved, and our friendly, knowledgeable support team ensures that contacting IT support is not the dreaded proposition it has become known for.

DDoS Protection

The distributed denial of service attack, better known as DDoS, is one of the more common issues your system can face. A malicious attack using any of the DDoS methods available is becoming an increasingly common occurrence. Not only that, but they are increasing in sophistication too, requiring a robust and effective solution to secure your system.

Our DDoS protection solution has been designed with the latest data available to ensure it is ready to face the problems as they exist right now, rather than a year ago. Most DDoS attacks are targeted at the transport layer of a communications system, and that is either the TCP or UDP protocol, which hosts on a network use to communicate with each other. The attack floods this layer, overwhelming the targets resources, both bandwidth and CPU/Memory capacity, effectively taking the target offline. Our system can effectively stop such an attack in its tracks, ensuring service continuity and fast, effective response to any situation. Our system can also cope with the growing trend of reflection based attacks through our cloud based system, this growing trend of attacks cannot be mitigated by more traditional onsite methods and for this reason this kind of attack has been used in growing numbers.

Intrusion Detection System

While being able to tackle and defeat intrusions of various kinds, that is the reactive approach, is an essential component of network security, spotting intrusions as they happen, a proactive approach, is just as important a component in a complete network protection system.

Our Intrusion detection system monitors all traffic flow and connections to identify possible malicious targets as they appear. There are several methods of ensuring adequate monitoring, and we are able to make use of all. Anomaly based detection, while effective, has proved too slow to react for modern architecture, and has largely been replaced. As with most of the industry, we focus on signature based detection systems in one of three forms.

HIDS, or host based intrusion detection systems, collect data via endpoint security management systems. NIDS, or network based intrusion detection systems collect data through anomaly detection systems. Finally, AIDS, or Application-based intrusion detection systems collect data by integrating a Web application firewall with dynamic application security testing systems.

Our Application based intrusion system is the most effective method of detection available, constantly monitoring for signs of attacks and is especially effective for network attacks that can prove devastating if not countered effectively.

Email Security

Email has quickly become the most common means of communication within the business environment, both internally across the network and externally outside it. As such, it presents the most numerous opportunity for a system to be compromised, making effective email security an incredibly important aspect of any business operating today. 

Effective control of both incoming and outgoing mail is essential to a secure system, and our Email security service focusses on all types of vulnerabilities to provide complete peace of mind. Our system takes advantage of message fingerprinting to compare all mail with our constantly updated database of known spam and malicious message sources and authenticity checks that analyse the header, encoding and other aspects of messages to ensure they are authentic. 

In addition, the use of both white and black lists enable user and administration control over specific domains and recipients, while all outgoing email is also analysed to detect a hijack of the mail system or malicious attachments. The whole system is based around a heuristic rule set that continually updates, allowing the system to run on its extensive and detailed rule set, ensuring the best protection possible for your network. 

Web Security

There is a significant threat presented by all connections to the internet, and having adequate security for all your network external connections should form a core part of any security strategy for any business. 

There are several aspects to network protection when it comes to connections between the network and the web, the first is filtering. Our filtering system allows you to control the connections made from within your network, it includes customizable location-aware policies through multiple content categories to allow you to set up set up multiple block or allow lists for both inside and outside your network. This software based solution allows rules to be set per individual user, group, per device or IP address to ensure the maximum flexibility. 

The second aspect is monitoring, providing a comprehensive breakdown of the connections made by each device and software application on your network. You can quickly spot undesirable use of the internet and what devices are being used. 

With our acclaimed 24/7 support to back it up, our web security service is comprehensive and unobtrusive, providing cost efficient protection for your whole system. 

Anti-Virus Protection

Ensuring all devices and infrastructure of your system is virus free is vital for network security and to keep business continuity. Our anti-virus protection service provides a comprehensive protection solution for your organization.

Quick, effortless deployment is a key component of our design, with ongoing automatic support ensuring your protection is always up to date and ready for the latest threats.

With real world experience and the skills to adapt solutions to your needs, our security consultancy service focuses on three significant aspects of your security system.

Penetration Testing

Our proactive testing forms part of your fully authorized evaluation of your security solution. By allowing us to safely attempt to take advantage of system vulnerabilities and exploit weaknesses in current security solutions, whether they be through the operating system, application flaws or hardware configuration errors and even through end user behaviour not in line with best practice.

This approach allows us to ascertain new weaknesses, assess the strength of protection and identify any additional measures that could need to be implemented. By using a multi-phase approach, we can ascertain if an opened vulnerability can be used to launch further, more intrusive exploits and compromise the system even more, and then use that to seek further vulnerabilities and so on. This approach can show just how far vulnerabilities can compromise the system, and where steps are needed to protect vital systems.

With these tests carried out, our testers produce full reports on the system, security strength and feasibility of compromise, allowing you, with our help, to create a security strategy that combats any weaknesses discovered during testing, this can include software adjustments, hardware configurations and recommendations for end user behaviour to minimise or eliminate risk.

PCI Assessment

For all businesses that store, process or transmit cardholder data, compliance with PCI DSS is a compulsory part of doing business. Our consultancy offers comprehensive PCA assessment and audit services available for your needs.

Our on-site assessment is done right, first time, every time, because we understand the importance of deadlines, for us and for you. Our staff are friendly and knowledgeable, and able to assist you every step of the way.

Where some assessors may impede the process, our team works with you to create your complete audit in as timely a manner as possible.

Our assessors can help you establish more efficient arrangement of your data environment through analysis of the data paths and workflows that are specific to your organisation, helping you improve your system where possible. Our whole system is built to be predictable, with time, cost and input all set out clearly before the assessment starts, you will never be subject to pricing surprises throughout the process.

Vulnerability Assessment

Perhaps the most vital stage in the understanding of the risks that your organisation is open to, the vulnerability assessment is a process that seeks to define and identify security weaknesses in a system. This can be through software, hardware or system architecture or use, and the assessment can be used to forecast the effectiveness of any proposed new or additional security solutions before implementation, and actual performance after implementation.

Our friendly and highly skilled assessors use several steps during an assessment to ensure accurate, fast results with the minimum of intrusion into your organisation’s operation. The first step is to define and classify the network resources available, which are then assigned a level of importance. Each resource is then examined and potential threats to each identified, to give an overall level of threat and an evaluation of the most serious threats.

Taking the threats from the most serious first, a strategy for dealing with each is developed, assessing the consequences of a successful attack on that vulnerability and methods to both remove the threat and mitigate the consequences of a breach at that point.

Our team then produce a comprehensive report outlining the risks that are faced and potential solutions to those problems.
