Endpoint Security has evolved from the traditional antivirus software to a comprehensive solution that covers multiple areas of IT security. This includes technologies such as, intrusion prevention systems (IPS), endpoint encryption, virtual patching, email security, etc. A recent report stated, phishing attacks increased by 200% during the start of the lockdown back in March of 2020.
However, the process of actually integrating an endpoint security solution is more complex when put into practice. This is where we at CT Link can help you improve. We use a tested framework in our endpoint service to help you solve your security concerns.
Endpoint Security Service Framework
Identify potential attack surfaces to your endpoints
Endpoint security always starts with identifying and defining critical areas and data that are crucial to your business. This will act as the foundation on which we will design your endpoint security architecture. We closely work with your IT Team to map out all areas of protection. This includes, but not limited to, emails, laptops, desktops, SaaS apps, IoT and OT devices.
Creating security procedures and policies based on your security requirements
The next step in our endpoint service would be creating the security policies based on the defined areas and data. Knowing where the sensitive data or places that can be vulnerable are, we can then strengthen and enforce better security. We assess your available resources and tailor your policies based on your requirements. This is to ensure that your security does not compromise your user’s experience.
Deploying the endpoint security
Our next step is to run a pilot test. This is to avoid any issues and misconfiguration during the migration step. Only when both CT Link and our client see no more issues in the pilot can we move to deployment. Depending on the number of endpoints, this can be the most time-consuming part of our service.
Advanced threat database and alert grouping
As your business grows, security priorities might change, or the number of alerts received may become overwhelming. We proactively adjust our solution during this stage. This is to avoid multiple false negative alerts your team has to handle. This is done through our solutions’ extensive threat database and analytic capabilities in which monitoring can be done daily through a cloud dashboard. Through it, we make sure that your security is always UpToDate and ready for emerging threats.
Comprehensive Analysis and Recommendations
Our team documents the events and threats that are found by our endpoint security solution. We submit reports to you in detail of what threats were found and their priority for resolution. This is to help guide your team efficiently resolve issues in the security. We also send our recommendations on how to better configure your network based on your security priorities as your business evolves.
