Protective services overview
The deployment of an Anti-ransomware virtual service delivers ongoing threat monitoring, protecting critical data stored across your network and cloud environments from being stolen and potentially held hostage with the encryption of your most valuable data assets.
A skilled team of intelligence specialists and analysts ensure round the clock 24x7x365 protection. Real-time ransomware monitoring coupled with incident response means we can shut-down and quarantine any ransomware attack in less than a second.
Alongside 24x7x365 management, ransomware monitoring and incident response, detailed root cause analysis is used to identify the entry method of any malware attacks. Automated quarantine processes are actioned to limit the impact of any breach, and our expert team can also support internal resource with any recovery management processes.
A Network Intrusion Detection and Prevention system (IDS/IPS) provides real-time threat detection and prevention to ensure any potential emerging threats are resolved before they can cause damage. A virtual management console provides the SOC with the overarching health monitoring for all IDS/IPS deployments and is API-integrated with both the SOC’s SIEM and i3 case management system to deliver a comprehensive defensive system.
Our experienced security team support all IDS/IPS deployments providing 24x7x365 real-time threat monitoring and incident response. Engineers and consultants configure IPS rules to detect inbound exploitation attempts of any perimeter-facing assets while tracking and nullifying any indicators of call-back to external command and control servers. Further, a dedicated Service Delivery Manager is on hand to manage service obligations and enhancements.
Real-time threat monitoring and incident response underpins IDS/IPS to ensure round the clock protection, while regular analysis and review ensures ongoing updates to signatures and rules. Threat intelligence findings are used to inform optimisation and the creation of new custom rules and blacklists. Detailed threat intelligence is also used to add further evidential data into the process while informing monthly Key Risk Indicator reports and ‘metrics that matter’.
The LogSecure SIEM delivers a correlated view of security risks across everything running on your network and in the cloud. A tightly-integrated and extensive Global Threat Intelligence Network (GTIN) and I3 Security Incident Management Portal identify potential compromise and provide real-time security alerts to enhance our detection and auto-remediation capability while expediting root cause analysis.
An expert security team underpins our SIEM services with 24x7x365 threat monitoring, internet-based threat hunting and a customised log monitoring approach to support your systems and bespoke applications. A Security Assurance Consultant ensures best practice is enforced at all times, with a dedicated Service Delivery Manager in place to ensure all commitments and expectations are met.
24x7x365 monitoring from a UK-based Security Operations Centre ensures that your business is protected around the clock. Early warning threat intelligence updates help ensure reinforced protections are in-situ ahead of an attack, while ongoing tuning of alert rules see that your service evolves in line with your business. We’ll also provide monthly Key Risk Indicator (KRI) reports, the ‘metrics that matter’, and threat intelligence summaries. When an incident arises, we’ll take the lead in working with your internal teams and relevant 3rd parties to action quick and effective resolutions.
Our always-on virtual scanners perform host discovery, vulnerability detection and compliance scanning to identify potential security risks for further SOC action. This includes Web Application Scanning, Real-time Scanning Agents, PCI Compliance Scanning and a live Threat Intelligence feed for newly disclosed vulnerabilities and emerging threats. Vulnerability insights are also used to inform tailored client reports and correlated within the SOC’s SIEM service.
A skilled security team supports and interprets every element of Vulnerability Management, providing real-time analysis and linkage with the SIEM system to ensure all risks are assessed in the round. Singularly, the SOC delivers regular vulnerability reports, configuring virtual scanner tools for ongoing optimised performance and integration with other SOC services. A Security Assurance Consultant is always on hand to ensure best practice is upheld, while a dedicated Service Delivery Manager ensures all service expectations are met.
Once deployed, your scanning and management service works in conjunction with relevant and supporting SOC services and is continually optimised to ensure assets are hardened and patched to the latest level. Additionally, tailored, ad-hoc scans can also be actioned on request by a client via the i3 portal, or on notification of a zero-day vulnerability.
Rapid remote deployment of monitoring and protection software through cloud management.
Protect key data, intellectual property and client data from theft and accidental leakage.
Detect targeted and sophisticated network attacks.
Reduce employee overhead and improve speed of response through automated defence and remediation.
Faster root-cause analysis via multiple security logs including network, firewall, server, active directory, database and cloud systems.
Flexibility to evolve your service using our ‘Roll Out Roll In’ SOC protections.
Key Risk Indicator and security maturity improvements delivered within 4 weeks of SOC deployment.
Harden networks and systems to common network intrusion attacks and malware.
Help protect against zero day malware.
Protect data stores and keep business operations moving with real-time anti-ransomware detection and prevention.
Joined up overview of security incidents in the event of a breach – slashing the time it takes to respond.

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.
