Business critical application server security

Critical-business application, such as SAP, contain sensitive data that needs to be secured from multiple threats such as cyber attacks and malware.  Although the vendors of these applications boast of their security, there are always some attacks which may enter through different means such as human error or through new kinds of malware.  CT Link Solutions can help you add an extra layer of protection for your business-critical applications and their servers, which are approved by the application vendors, to ensure that your data is kept safe.

In the past, industrial systems relied heavily on proprietary protocols and software and human monitoring on an isolated network.  This is not the case for today’s operational technology (OT).  There are now more OT systems being brought online for various reasons, some want to enable functions like smart analytics, improve their overall system efficiency and capabilities with technological integrations.   

However, since you are now exposing your usually isolated network online, you are now exposing it to security risks.  With both IT and OT to consider, visibility of both networks can be a problem.  One such problem would be a lack in visibility for the IT team as they would have to monitor both the OT and IT network.  Another would be the lack of control over security policies due to technological advances.  Many security policies find themselves either outdated, unused, redundant or they might not even be enforced anymore. 

This is where we at CT Link Systems, Inc. can help you.  With the help of our team, we can provide you the right tools to help you prevent and mitigate these security vulnerabilities.  This is where security solutions such as Host Intrusion Prevention System (HIPS) and Intrusion Detection System (IDS) come in.  Complimentary to the most basic security solutions like Anti-virus and firewalls, HIPS and IDS can help find suspicious behavior and notify you immediately on what actions you can take.  They find these unknown threats through a process of machine learning rather than relying on current databases to ensure that even unknown or new attacks are still being detected.
