Network intrusion

Network security in a connected world

Security threat

In a connected world, network intrusion is an ever-present threat. Hackers are continuously looking at your perimeter for ways to break into internet facing systems and beyond, scanning for vulnerabilities they can exploit. Attackers may also attempt to breach network security through proximity to vulnerable WiFi connections such as shared offices or public/guest hotspots or target weakly secured devices connected to the network.

You might not know about a network intrusion right away. Stealthy attackers find a route into the network, then disguise themselves as a normal user by following behaviour protocols. Under this cover they seek out backdoors and circumvent access. In some cases hackers, or their malware, will remain dormant on your network for months before launching a cyber attack. This makes it much harder for cyber defences to spot the threat before it’s too late. Unfortunately, it is often the case that the attacker will also seek to infect your backup systems, rendering these useless. It’s at this point, when you are at your weakest the malware attack may escalate into a ransom demand.

Clearly, once intrusion has occurred the odds are stacked in favour of the attacker. They have a platform to mount recurring assaults, disrupt business systems or steal IP and data. The key therefore, is to ensure the attacker does not penetrate your network in the first place. Network security is vital to stopping the attack at its origin.


How we help

IDS IPS (Intrusion Detection System/Intrusion Prevention System) services continuously scan and block attempts to access your network.

The more protections you have in place the better we can detect and respond to threats, which is why we offer flexibility to Roll Out Roll In (RORI) services as your business evolves or we prove the (non)usefulness of any existing security products you may be currently using.

Drawing on information from multiple SIEM log feeds, our SOC analysts have a complete picture of your security posture, enabling them to detect even the slightest anomalies or indicators of compromise.

Technology alone is not enough – our 24×7 SOC experts use human intellect to contextualise events detected by the technology, so they can spot and stop anything out of the ordinary.

Through our SOC, your network security is backed up with multiple protective technologies such as Data Loss Prevention and Anti-ransomware – so if a hacker does get in, we can respond to the threat quickly and efficiently before damage is done.

In addition to ongoing monitoring we provide executive monthly reports detailing any attempted attacks in the last 30 days and benchmark our findings against key performance indicators.


Round the clock, automated intrusion detection and prevention.

Peace of mind as threats are identified, investigated and blocked in real-time.

Correlation of various security data streams, creating an early warning system.

Prevent any attacks from escalating.

Detect and arrest even the most sophisticated hackers.

After deploying Zepko’s IPS system onto the client’s network, malware was found on the internal network. The malware tried to call-back to a command and control (C2) server which was identified in real-time and blocked by the IPS system.

This malware had remained undetected by the Council’s anti-virus system, and as soon as the IPS system alerted our SOC they commenced incident response processes with the client to contain further risk from the compromised system.

Using our SIEM the SOC looked for any further indicators of compromise and spread of the malware – all compromised systems were reimaged and an incident report was provided to the Council.
