Threat prevention and secure internet access (VPN).
Network Security Services Partner
Network security is the practice of preventing and protecting against unauthorized intrusion into corporate networks. As a philosophy, it complements endpoint security, which focuses on individual devices; network security instead focuses on how those devices interact. ITAF network security engineers will preserve the bloodline of your business and make your network stable and secured.
What is the cloud firewall?
First line of defense for your network against intruders.
Cloud firewalls are designed to secure an organisation’s network and its users. Not like a traditional on-premises hardware firewall but deployed off-site from the cloud. This type of firewall can be called: Software-as-a-service firewall (SaaS firewall) or Firewall-as-a-Service (FwaaS).
Why to choose a cloud firewall and how can ITAF help you?
Having a cloud-based firewall means that businesses don’t have to depend on premises firewalls and services. This leads to a network design where all locations of the organisation can be secured by one single firewall or one firewall cluster. This results in a more performant company network and a lower cost to maintain the firewall(s). A customer can have full ownership over the firewall via a web interface. ITAF’s engineers are there for second line support and maintain the firewall by applying the daily security patches.
E-mail virus, malware and phishing protection
Phishing and spam, what's that and how to prevent it?
Malware and viruses are software intentionally designed to cause damage to data on a computer or server on the network. Malware is often placed on the computer (endpoint) of an end user through a specific technique via e-mail, called phishing. Phishing stands for social engineering attack often used to steal user and company data, including login credentials and credit card numbers. It occurs when an attacker, masquerading as a trusted entity, dupes a victim into opening an email.
How to prevent this and how ITAF fits in this picture?
ITAF provides a professional anti-virus and anti-malware filter before all incoming e-mails of your organisation. Next to this, ITAF can provide online security awareness training educating the staff to teach them how to work in a secure way, recognise phishing mails and prevent them to take the wrong actions when receiving a phishing mail.
Network & Host-based Intrusion
Detection System (HIDS & NIDS)
Monitor, analyze and protect a system from network-based threats
Host intrusion detection systems (HIDS) and network intrusion detection systems (NIDS) are methods of security management for computers, servers and networks. In HIDS, anti-threat applications such as firewalls, antivirus software and spyware-detection programs are installed on every network computer that has two-way access to the outside environment such as the Internet. In NIDS, anti-threat software is installed only at specific points such as servers that interface between the outside environment and the network segment to be protected.
How can ITAF help you running HIDS and NIDS?
All intrusion detection (ID) involves the gathering and analysis of information from various areas within a computer, server or network, where ITAF network security specialists will identify possible threats posed by hackers and crackers inside or outside the organisation. Host-based and network-based ID systems have their respective advantages and limitations. The most effective protection for a proprietary network is provided by a combination of both technologies we are ready to run for your business.
Security information &
event management services (SIEM)
Real-time analysis of security alerts
Security information and event management (SIEM) software gives enterprise security professionals both insight into and a track record of the activities within their IT environment. It combined security event management (SEM) which analyses log and event data in real time to provide threat monitoring, event correlation and incident response with security information management (SIM) which collects, analyses and reports on log data.
What are the benefits of using the SIEM software
and how ITAF gets in the picture?
As a security services leader, ITAF is possessing the SIEM software that collects and aggregates log data generated throughout the organizations technology infrastructure, from host systems and applications to network and security devices such as firewalls and antivirus filters. ITAF security specialists then identify and categorize incidents and events through software, as well as analyse them. The software delivers on two main objectives, which are to:
– provide reports on security-related incidents and events, such as successful and failed logins, malware activity and other possible malicious activities and;
– send alerts if analysis shows that an activity runs against predetermined rulesets and thus indicates a potential security issue.
