We still lock down networks. However, we also focus on managed detection and response. This is where we monitor networks 24/7. This allows us to spot attacks as they happen. We then counter threats as they occur. However, monitoring also allows us to counter many attacks before they happen..
Managed Detection Cyber Security Services Explained
Cyber security services have traditionally focused on preventing cyber attacks. To do this, security experts lock down networks. Their focus is to stop hackers from getting in. However, attacks still happen. This is because it is not possible to seal off a network completely.
- System updates can create security weaknesses.
- Employees can accidentally grant attackers access to networks
- Cyber thieves are constantly developing new attack methods.
At Defensity, our cyber security services are different.
We still lock down networks. However, we also focus on managed detection and response. This is where we monitor networks 24/7. This allows us to spot attacks as they happen. We then counter threats as they occur. However, monitoring also allows us to counter many attacks before they happen.
Cyber Security Services – Managed Detection & Response
Cyber thieves are just like real-world thieves. A hacker will never attack a network out of the blue. Instead, they linger around networks. They look to see what level of security you are using. Then they choose specific times to attack. Thankfully, our cyber security services can detect when this is happening.
How Managed Detection and Response Works
How managed detection and response works is simple. We install monitoring software on networks. This identifies attacks. However, our software also spots suspicious activity that occurs before attacks.
- If an attacker is scouting out your network, we’ll know
- We investigate all suspicious activity
- We spot threats before security breaches happen
In every case, we can instantly see when things aren’t right. When they aren’t we notify you immediately.
What Does Responding to Threats Look Like?
In every case, Defensity can responds to potential threats very differently. Monitoring might bring things like phishing emails to our attention. Alternatively, we might identify hackers using complex software tools to stage attacks.
When we do notice suspicious activity, we inform our clients. This allows our clients to take networks offline. (Though, this will not always be necessary.) We then fix weaknesses attackers have been probing. We often find, that Hackers who realise that a network is monitored & remediated regularly will often also cease attack attempts.
Who Benefits from our Cyber Security Services
Businesses of all sizes benefit from our managed detection and response services. Think of it as like having your own police force.
With regular cyber security, you lock the door to your network. However, this doesn’t stop forced entry attempts. To prevent these, we patrol networks 24/7. Like police officers, we also arrive to chase down thieves before network break-ins are successful.
