In Cybersecurity, Network Security, Phishing

CORE Security

The CORE Security program affirms your network security is continually strengthened to help keep up with the ever-evolving risk of cyberattacks.

Our Cybersecurity Engineers and vCISO (Virtual Chief Information Security Officer) will work with your firm to provide a holistic approach to cybersecurity using people, processes and technology. This comprehensive approach will allow us to successfully prevent, mitigate, and remediate more cyberattacks successfully.

Traditional security measures for a network consisted of applying patching and installing a firewall which are very minimal techniques for building a defense. An easier way to explain our CORE Service Program is by likening it to securing your home prior to leaving. You would want to do all that you could to prevent a thief from breaking in. You might lock your doors and windows (firewall and patching). While this is Important, it will not stop a thief that has been casing your house for a month and knows your patterns. If an intruder is persistent, and really want in, they could use tools to pry open doors or break windows.

The same concept applies to intruders wanting access to your network. Hackers and cybercriminals are using new tools and techniques to bypass traditional cybersecurity measures. Our CORE Security Program will allow you to fully protect your “home.”

Vulnerability Management (VM)

Using the home security analogy, if a door or window was left unlocked, Vulnerability Management mitigates that threat and makes sure that ALL your doors and windows are locked.

VM is the process of identifying threat vectors that criminals can use to gain access to your network. These are usually OS and non-Microsoft applications (i.e., Adobe, Flash, etc.). As new vulnerabilities are identified, your network should be tested regularly to identify new access points and patch or reconfigure them on a regular basis.


Security Operations Center as a Service (SOCaaS)

SOCaaS acts as your home’s surveillance system. If an intruder is lurking around outside or trying to gain entry, you want the authorities to be notified as soon as possible. The best scenario is that you would have a recording of the intrusion to know exactly what method he used to break in and exactly what was stolen so that it can be prevented in the future and your items can be recovered.

SOCaaS monitors all network connectivity to identify unusual activity that could represent a security breach. Highly trained security engineers monitor your network 24/7 utilizing a combination of software and hardware to monitor access, log-ins and inbound/outbound network traffic.

If something suspicious comes up, they create alerts that we research and determine the nature of the potential issue. It creates the much-needed visibility into your network traffic to see if anyone is attempting to gain access or already has access to potentially sensitive information.

Next Generation Antivirus (NGAV)

Think of NGAV as remote medical devices for your children or your pets. When they get into trouble they can press a button and alert the authorities or call in a medical team to assess their health. This can be accomplished while outside of the protection of your home.

NGAV is the natural (and much needed) evolution of traditional Antivirus that protects computers from the full spectrum of modern cyber attacks, without any extra CPU resources. NGAV speaks to a fundamentally different technical approach in the way malicious activity is detected and blocked and communicates with our SOCaaS (surveillance) so that all logging is captured, and an entire threat landscape can be recognized.

NGAV takes a system-centric view of endpoint security, examining every process on every endpoint to algorithmically detect and block the malicious tools, tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTP’s) on which attackers rely.


DNS Malware Filtering & Protection

Now that we have the inside and perimeter of your home protected, we want to make sure that all the roads leading to and from your home are also protected. So, let’s make sure we can monitor a suspicious vehicle pulling down your street and passing by your home a couple of times. If there’s an APB out for a red Corvette and it’s driving up and down your street, you want to know that it’s not going to make it into your driveway so you block it in advance and alert the authorities.

DNS Malware Filtering & Protection utilizes software to block internet traffic to and from potentially “poisoned” sites on the Internet. It represents the most effective prevention of malware, crypto and/or intrusions as it blocks traffic from known bad sites across the globe. It can also be used to provide high-level category filtering and reporting.

CORE Security Additional Services

The CORE Security Program includes additional services that are important overall network security.

  • Office 365 Security Consultation – Our security team works with your business to determine the correct measure of controls that should be turned on to mitigate data loss and secure your cloud system.
  • Phishing Training for Employees – Employee training and spear phishing simulation campaigns empower users to recognize email threats not only at work but also from devices that are not protected by corporate email gateways.
  • Threat Hunting – using their own knowledge and familiarity with the client network our security team hypotheses about potential threats, such as, but not limited to, Lateral Movement by Threat Actors.
  • Email Protection and Management – email-filtering, spam blocking, encryption, archiving,
    anti-impersonation and anti-spoofing by way of domain fraud prevention and backups. In addition, protecting users and data from targeted spear phishing attacks using an A.I. engine that detects threats that traditional email gateways cannot.

Finally, you need a team to architect and design the security framework around your house. Our engineers will assist you with regulatory compliance or identifying potential risks and make sure you have the proper tools in place to feel confident that your network is protected. Attacks on smaller organizations are becoming more and more frequent. Here are some recent statistics from Barracuda Networks and Webroot

· 43% of cyberattacks target small business

· Only 14% claim to have the necessary tools and expertise to mitigate cyber risks

· 60% of small companies go out of business within six months of a cyberattack

The CORE Security program was developed to provide our clients with the tools needed to mitigate these risks. Just as you would protect your home, protect your network.
