Supply chain risk

Securing every network touchpoint
How we help

Business need

Applications and cloud providers are now part of the information supply chain, which means organisations have more third party suppliers connecting into their network than ever before. Your network is only as strong as your weakest link. When you have spent time and money investing in your own security protections, how can you ensure that your suppliers meet the same standards that you do?

Ensuring the end-to-end protection of systems, people and data is vital. If a supplier’s network is not secure, this could create vulnerabilities for yours. A third party data leak could include sensitive data from your organisation, but without control over the security, how could you react quickly to prevent further data loss? What’s more, unscrupulous attackers may use smaller organisations as a springboard into larger, target companies where they can reap bigger rewards from ransomware, or use connected systems to compromise users. Vulnerabilities in supply chain security could provide an easy route in.

How we help

Ongoing live monitoring, rather than periodical auditing, means that security weaknesses can be identified in real time and responded to straight away

Our technologies natively integrate with the most widely used applications, software and cloud service providers

Where your organisation is providing a third-party service to a customer, we can help you achieve compliance set by their own security mandate

We monitor every insertion point on the network through a powerful combination of best-in-class technologies and human intellect

We go beyond the network, searching every corner of the web for potential data leaks so that we can alert you of third party vulnerabilities without any time to waste

Through our consultancy services we can provide recommendations around the policies and best practices you set for your suppliers

Futureproofing your business by providing a strong foundation of protection from the learnings we acquire before, during or after vulnerabilities are detected

Liam 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). 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.

To further protect the client from future attacks, the SOC team deploy real-time vulnerability scanning agents on workstation and servers to ensure the hosts are hardened and patched to the latest level to protect against wormable ransomware.

One in 6 of those attacked was hit with a ransom and 58% paid up.

The average firm now devotes 21% of its IT budget to cyber security – a jump of 63%
