With more and more companies introducing a mobile workforce and remote working, cyber threats have become more frequent and are top of mind in most organisations. The need to link laptops, mobiles, tablets, and other wireless devices to a corporate network exposes the organisation to a whole host of cyber security threats. Cleartec has the ability to keep your business safe from these threats and introduce a safer working environment for all your users.
As with any other area of technology, there is no one-size-fits-all. At Cleartec we are experts and trusted partners of the world’s leading cyber specialists in protecting businesses against modern cyberattacks.
Through an unmatched combination of cybersecurity experts, proven processes and proprietary technologies, our cyber partners proactively hunt threats across networks, endpoints, cloud and hybrid environments—so you can focus on running your business.
Managed Detection and Response (MDR)
The main objective and benefit of MDR is to rapidly seek out, identify and limit the number of threats without having to recruit more internal staff, thus reducing the organisations total spend on people. MDR is helping organisations achieve positive security outcomes by overcoming today’s biggest security challenges, including:
An ever-expanding threat surface: digital transformation means you have more information to protect than ever before, spread out across cloud on-premises, cloud and hybrid environments and with more potential entry points—including applications, services, networks and a growing number of endpoints
Recruiting, retaining and resourcing: You rarely have the resources and talent you need due to a global shortage in cybersecurity professionals and already-stretched budgets
Technology alone isn’t a complete solution: Every modern breach has bypassed best-of-breed firewall and antivirus technologies—what was missing was the human element
How MDR works
We provide and manage the security software, and underlying services that provide visibility across your threat surfaces, so you don’t have to.
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)
SIEM combines security information management (SIM) and security event management (SEM) into a single system which collects event log data from various sources, identifies non-normal activity with real-time analysis, and takes the necessary action.
SIEM allows you to see the activity across your network, respond swiftly to potential cyberattacks and fulfil your compliance requirements.
Security Operations Centre as a service (SOCaaS)
Security Operations Centre as a service (SOCaaS), provides a security operations service that manages all your IT assets. It provides your internal security and IT services with access our specialist cybersecurity partners with the in-depth and up-to-date knowledge and skills necessary to combat cybersecurity threats.
Our experts work within your security infrastructure to provide a comprehensive security service which protects your entire network from cyberthreats.
Cleartec’s perimeter security service protects your network from hackers, intruders, and other unwelcome individuals, via surveillance detection, pattern analysis, threat recognition, and effective response.
It protects against threats including hacking efforts, malware, ransomware, and other types of network infiltration through a range of systems:
- Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) are alarm systems which monitor traffic between your network and public networks and take action to prevent dangerous information (e.g. malware) from entering your company’s private network.
- Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) are control systems that allow or reject data based on a predefined set of criteria that is updated regularly or automatically by your managed service provider. Intrusion prevention systems might include an automatic defence mechanism that prevents data from accessing the network without human intervention.
- Firewalls are a filtering mechanism which allow or restrict traffic from the public network, protecting your network from potential risks.
- Border routers manage traffic into and out of your network.
- Unified Threat Management (UTM) systems merge the functionalities of IDS and IPS systems into a single security device and safeguards it using a range of software including antivirus, anti-spyware, anti-spam, firewall, and virtual private network (VPN).
For businesses without the option of hiring a specialist information security officer, Cleartec’s vCISO service provides the resources and expertise to ensure that you are able to devise and implement a cyber security strategy which effectively protects you from cyber threats and maintains your compliance with data protection requirements.
As a ‘virtual’ Chief Information Security Officer, a vCISO works with you to improve your cyber security across your organisation to ensure that cyber security and data compliance strategies are aligned and managed.
A vCISO works at a senior level to identify weaknesses and develop a strategy to improve your IT security framework, includes training staff, developing processes and deploying suitable technology
Back-up and data retrieval strategy
Running outdated and unreliable backup and data recovery technologies puts your data at risk. In the event of a disaster situation you run the risk of loss of productivity, the business may suffer a loss of income and your data may fall into the wrong hands. This is only made worse by the amount of time it takes to recover from this disaster.
Organisations are taking immediate action to mitigate the above becoming an issue by investing in their data backup programme, and their disaster recovery programme. Cleartec partner with the UK’s leading BaaS & DRaaS (backup as a service) (disaster recovery as a service) vendors to provide a best in class solution to alleviate the doubt that if you was susceptible to a breach your back ups are safe and away from danger.
Cleartec can help organisations build and design a bespoke, compliant and secure solution to help meet their data security needs. Partnering with industry leading data centre providers we can help you achieve a robust and fully managed service for your data.
Cleartec’s backup solutions will:
Reduce costs of internal backup operations.
Help organisations meet compliance requirements and protect against malware (eg: ransomware)
Help organisations maintain or improve their RPO (recovery point objective) & RTO (recovery time objective)
Provide around the clock cyber security expertise
provide 24/7 management of the datacentre.
Ensure your data is stored in secure data centres that comply with ISO 27001.
Vulnerability Scanning and Patch Management
Managing vulnerabilities is a top priority and a key security control that should be practised by every organisation to mitigate against security threats. Vulnerability scanning services identify any and all software vulnerabilities from constant scanning and analysis. Our team of security analysts will consult with you to understand and categorise the severity of each high level vulnerability before they can exploit your organisation.
Patch management services will provide a proactive approach to remediate all security vulnerabilities by scheduling updates from vendors to all operating systems and software applications. These updates are then tested and validated by our team of engineers before they are deployed to your servers and/or end user workstations, they will then be deployed during the scheduled patching window.
- Greatly decrease the existing vulnerabilities in your environment
- Provide actionable data to keep exploits to a minimum
- Provide high level insight into existing and emerging threats
- Discovery and classification of hardware and software assets for scanning
- External IP address scanning
- Internal scanning of discovered systems and devices
- Post-scan vulnerability assessment meeting with Thrive cybersecurity specialists and client team to review results and assess risk to the organisation
- Client dashboard with visibility into scan results and discovered potential vulnerabilities
