Cyber-threat monitoring and detection are the cornerstones of an effective IT security strategy. But collecting the right data, parsing and analyzing it into manageable and useful pieces of information is an extremely complex task.
No company wants to experience a data breach but it happens all the time. While larger companies can often weather the financial and PR storms associated with a breach, the average small business closes their doors within 6 months of a cyber-security incident. What’s worse is that a vast majority of breaches are active within the network for months or years before detection – the only thing missing in these cases was a security expert looking for the evidence of a compromise.
The best way to protect your company and customers is to let skilled security experts keep watch over the activity on your network. By applying cutting-edge SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) technology and established threat intelligence, suspicious activity and security incidents on your network can be identified and remediated as they occur.

Threats to Network Security
Port scans, host scans, denied scans, sudden change of traffic between certain IPs or other anomalies in traffic.
Network server/device and admin logon anomalies – authentication failures at all times and unusual IPs.
Network access irregularities from VPN, wireless logons and domain controller.
Account lockouts, password scans and unusual logon failures.
Rogue endpoints, wireless access points.
Botnets, mail viruses, worms, DDOS and other “day zero” malware identified by cross-correlating DNS, DHCP, web proxy logs and flow traffic.
Abnormalities in web server and database access
An effective Business Security Strategy Includes:
Real-time log collection
As devices on your network generate logs and events, they are collected and transmitted to the cloud in real time for automated correlation.
Thousands of security correlation rules enable speedy evaluation of millions of network events to identify suspicious irregularities.
Every security event identified by the cloud-based, 24/7 cyber-threat detection engine is viewed and evaluated by a trained cyber-security expert.
Detailed analysis of valid security alerts are initiated within a state-of-the-art Security Operations Center (SOC) – staffed 24x7x365.
Threat mitigation and remediation procedures using industry best practices are provided either remotely or on-site to ensure business continuity.
Executive-level and in-depth technical reports provide a view of the number and type of threats your network is facing.
A high quality 24/7 cyber security service should have the following components:
The process begins by collecting the most basic elements of cyber-threat monitoring: the event log (machine data) and configuration/performance (health check) data.
This data is securely transmitted to the cloud, in real-time, where automated cyber-threat detection technology sorts through millions of events through a complex process called correlation.
The correlation rules used have been developed over nearly 15 years by world-leading security technologists and are constantly being updated and improved to ensure new threats are identified.
Discovered security alerts are escalated to a team of highly trained experts who perform a deep triage process by means of human inspection. This “eyes on” scrutiny definitively pinpoints security incidents which require attention to remediate.
Finally, a response team member will act on the threat to neutralize or eliminate it – ensuring the risk to your business is reduced.
