Understand Your Business Vulnerabilities to IT Threats
Need professional help to understand how vulnerable your business is to IT security threats?
How secure do you feel?
Hackers are always looking for new ways to get past your ‘wall’.
A top priority for organisations is to ensure that they are protected against all kinds of IT threats. Assessing your infrastructure is essential in understanding where any potential vulnerabilities are – and that’s where we come in. We work with our clients to provide them with a comprehensive and complete IT audit. Our top priority is to boost business leaders confidence in their individual IT infrastructures ability and efficiency.
We undergo a review of the security solutions used within the organisation such as the anti-virus management console and email server filtering.
The review will explore their effectiveness with regards to viruses and malware.
We then carry out an audit of the data backup process which provides an insight into the best practices regarding data sharing and storage. For example:
- Is access to key data restricted?
- Is such data encrypted?
- Are backups taken regularly?
- Are backup files kept and stored securely?
If you are unable to answer any of the above, then we can help you.
External Network Penetration Test
Uncover Critical Issues
External penetration testing uncovers critical issues within IT security and demonstrates how well your network and data are protected.
External penetration testing reviews vulnerabilities that could potentially be exploited by external users without credentials or access rights. It confirms the status of the perimeter/external access and whether there are vulnerable ports open to the internet that can potentially be exploited.
Potential Compromise Impact
Our auditors adopt an attacker role and penetrate the network infrastructure, demonstrating the potential impact of a compromise if attackers were to be successful. Return on Investment
Our assessments can help managers evaluate the return on investment of existing security defences, such as firewalls and other prevention systems. Where necessary Idency will help you fill in the gaps with our leading edge security solutions.
Vulnerability Scans of the internal network and hosting environments will provide an overview of the IT systems current security status. These scans involve assessing and reporting on security vulnerabilities that exist in an organisation’s systems and software.
Assessments will be considered from a number of perspectives including satellite office, desktop user and within the hosting environment (servers, desktops, laptops, virtual machines, firewalls, switches, etc) connected to a network.
If identified as a necessary requirement, a review of the server / system build status / hardened state can be undertaken using security benchmarking – this is an additional cost.
IT Risk Assessment Services
IT risk assessment services involves exactly that, assessing the potential IT risks. The process involves identifying and evaluating the risk of IT controls and systems to ensure that an organisations cybersecurity infrastructure has been appropriately chosen for the potential risks specific to the individual companies systems and procedures.
