Before carrying out any form of cyberattack, hackers survey their targets for weaknesses. There’s a wealth of information about your business online and criminals will seek to exploit it. This process is called footprinting; it’s a pre-attack exercise that aims to collect and analyse publicly available information about a cybercriminal’s intended target.
Recent high profile hacks have shown that hackers exploit common vulnerabilities using well understood and documented techniques. Every organisation is a target, even those without high value information assets. Cybercriminals will scour the Internet for vulnerable systems and organisations with weak IT security. It is important to identify your weaknesses before cybercriminals do.
Phishing uses social engineering to trick employees into downloading malware or disclosing sensitive information. Fraudulent emails are most common, but cybercriminals also use instant messaging, mobile apps, social networks and SMS text messaging. These attacks frequently succeed because they target users, not technology. Your business is only ever as secure as its least security conscious employee.
Traditional vulnerability scans can create more issues than they solve; hampering network availability and inundating already overstretched security teams with reports that are either too vague or too detailed to be easily actionable. Meanwhile, unnecessary or poorly planned mitigation efforts only add to the burden on security teams.
With cyberattacks becoming ever more sophisticated, SIEM and other traditional security controls are no longer enough to protect businesses. SecureData’s monitoring, management and threat defence solutions address this challenge, providing organisations with a clear view its security posture, an understanding of anomalous or nefarious activity on the network and capability to mitigate and respond to threats.
Remote access has become a key requirement in day to day operations for most organisations, whether for employees, contractors or clients. Our managed service for remote access ensures optimum service levels and availability, while driving cost-efficiencies across the board.
Distributed denial-of-service (DDoS) attacks can cripple your business’s IT infrastructure by ruining the user experience, resulting in lost revenues and a bruised reputation. Our DDoS protection solution analyses your network’s security in real-time and provides actionable intelligence that enables you to block threats before they have a business impact.
