Information is sent over networks in packets and firewalls investigate them for your network’s security. Firewalls are security devices that prevent unauthorized connections and malicious software from entering your network. These devices monitor incoming and outgoing traffic, and if a computer or program outside your network tries to gain access, the firewall decides what to block or allow based upon defined cybersecurity rules. Firewalls also prevent unauthorised access of data and protect your company’s network from being compromised. As your business-critical applications move from our premises-based networks to the cloud and users access resources
from their personal devices everywhere, your needs may vary from our single network perimeter to multiple micro-perimeters. Netcominfra's latest firewall solutions provide integration between core networking functions and network security, delivering a secure architecture. This results in a complete security portfolio that protects your applications and users everywhere.
SIEM is a software that provides a powerful method of threat detection, real-time reporting and long-term analytics of security logs and events. It works by collecting log and event data that is generated by systems, security devices and applications throughout your organization’s infrastructure and collating it on a centralized platform. From antivirus events to firewall logs, SIEM software identifies this data and sorts it into categories, such as malware activity, failed and successful logins and other potentially malicious activity. When the software identifies activity that could signify a threat to the organization, alerts are generated to indicate a potential
security issue. These alerts can be set as either low or high priority using a set of predefined rules. For example, if a user account generates 20 failed login attempts in 20 minutes, this could be flagged as suspicious activity, but set at a lower priority as it is most likely to be a user that has forgotten their login details. However, if an account experiences 120 failed login attempts in 5 minutes this is more likely to be a brute-force attack in progress and flagged as a high severity incident.
The Domain Name System (DNS) is what converts human-readable domain names into an IP address to connect to and helps point web traffic to the right destination. It is used by all your users and all internet traffic flows through it. For this reason, it is a highly sensitive system which is exposed to many threats from cyber attackers that aim to take control of a DNS, to infect and extract all data from it. Many modern enterprises are vulnerable to DNS server security risks and incapable of protecting against volumetric attacks, whereby large amounts of traffic to your website may cause servers to crash, preventing users from finding the website. Besides
compromising the way a DNS works, a malicious attack can also aim to exploit security vulnerabilities on the server that runs the DNS services, extracting valuable data such as passwords, usernames and other personal information. These represent serious issues for companies, and make DNS security a critical component to ensure online security. DNS security helps maintain the overall integrity and availability of your DNS services as well as monitors the DNS activity to highlight any security issues that may occur elsewhere in your network.
Cisco Umbrella is a cloud security platform that unifies multiple security services in a single cloud-delivered platform to secure internet access and control cloud app usage from your network, branch offices, and roaming users. Cisco Umbrella integrates secure web gateway, cloud-delivered firewall, DNS-layer security, cloud malware protection and cloud access security broker (CASB) functionality for effective protection anywhere your users go. Before users connect to any online destination, Cisco Umbrella analyses the DNS requests to detect threats and anomalies, before a decision is made whether to permit or deny the traffic. Cisco Umbrella’s global network
processes billions of requests per day, analysing and learning internet activity to determine where attacks are being staged, so it can block requests to unwanted and malicious destinations before a connection is even established. As a cloud-delivered service, Cisco Umbrella provides the visibility needed to protect internet access across all your network devices, office locations, and roaming users. Internet activity is logged and categorized by the type of security threat or web content, and whether it was blocked or allowed.
Emails and applications are the heart of today’s digital business. Whether servicing employees, partners or customers, emails and applications drive business growth, create new revenue streams and increase customer value. Thus, emails and applications have become a significant focal point for modern businesses. Email is the most important business communication tool—and simultaneously, the most used for cyber attacks. In fact, attackers turn to email as the primary vector for spreading malware. Attackers also use social engineering to create sophisticated and highly targeted Business Email Compromise (BEC) and phishing campaigns.
Email Security enables your users to communicate securely and helps your organization combat Business Email Compromise (BEC), ransomware, advanced malware, phishing, spam, and data loss with a multilayered approach to security. The applications we need to do business are no longer just residing in a single, physical data center. Sure, there are some applications running in your on-premises data center. But some are also running in offsite data centers, or in your private cloud. Applications are moving targets; they run everywhere and are constantly changing, making them difficult to secure. Application security encompasses securing an application throughout its life cycle. Netcominfra's application security offers cloud workload protection to reduce the attack surface with automated micro-segmentation based on recommended policies tailored to your applications, and complete visibility of application behaviors, dependencies, and vulnerabilities.
Zero-day attacks, advanced persistent threats (APTs), and malware – these are just a few examples of how innovative, persistent, and motivated cybercriminals have become. And as attackers discover new ways to breach your organization, security professionals struggle to deal with those cyber attacks because they lack the visibility, tools, and expertise to coordinate an effective security solution. Attackers take advantage of these gaps in security to evade detection and conceal malicious activity. As attacks become more advanced, so must the security solutions used to protect your organization. More than ever before, organizations now need superior
visibility, continuous control, and advanced threat protection across their entire network. Netcominfra Pvt. Ltd. provides a cloud-based security management platform with advanced threat protection. The solution’s advanced threat capabilities allow your organization to move beyond traditional detection tools and gain visibility into malware threats across all branch locations and remote offices, giving you the ability to quickly detect, contain, and remediate breaches.
Network vulnerabilities represent security gaps that could be abused by attackers to damage network assets, trigger a denial of service or steal potentially sensitive information. Attackers are constantly looking for new vulnerabilities to exploit and take advantage of old vulnerabilities that may have gone unpatched. Having a vulnerability management framework in place that regularly checks for new vulnerabilities is crucial for preventing cybersecurity breaches. Without a vulnerability testing and patch management system, old security gaps may be left on the network for extended periods of time. This gives attackers more of an opportunity to exploit vulnerabilities and carry out their attacks.
