How we help

Business need

There are several reasons organisations struggle to achieve the right balance between IT security spend and adequate protection. One cause the temptation to buy more products, or the ‘fog of more’. With so many security products available, companies are quick to opt for new measures without scrutinising the true need or value of the technology or how it integrates and co-operates with the current or future operating model and security function. More isn’t always better – and often technologies overlap in functions, leading to unnecessary cyber security costs.

On top of that, if in-house security operations teams aren’t equipped with the skills to get the best out of each security tool, organisations are unable to maximise on their investments. Protections can’t be fully effective unless they are properly monitored and managed in concert – but doing this requires expensive, skilled and hard to recruit personnel.

People costs can mount up, too, particularly as different specialists are often required to manage specific technologies or perform different roles in the orchestration of your defences. When security needs to be managed around the clock, keeping on top of staff turnover, absence, recruitment and training can all be a hit to the bottom line and generally speaking is often a non-core activity for the business.

Tony opens an email attachment from a known client; unfortunately his client’s laptop has been compromised and he opens a document infected with ransomware.

The ransomware starts to encrypt his shared folders, but in a sub-second response his desktop is quarantined by our anti-ransomware system which alerts the SOC team in real-time.

The SOC team notified the client’s IT team and commence incident response processes, using their SIEM they performed root cause analysis which identified the entry method of the malware (via email). The SOC obtained a copy of the malware for analysis in their malware labs, they detonated the malware safely to study its behaviour and identify its spreading mechanism to find it was wormable (able to spread across the network on open ports to vulnerable systems). The SOC also investigated the IPS alarms to identify any call backs to command and control servers.

Armed with this knowledge the SOC guided the IT Team during the recovery process to ensure the malware was not persistent and did not reinfect the systems after recovery or reattempt encryption.
