Why and How to Block Security Breaches at the Endpoint
A Comprehensive Security Strategy Requires Multiple Security Layers
There is no silver bullet for security.
Your security strategy requires a defense that has multiple security layers and tools, each removing risk. These layers “slow the flow” of a potential attack.
It is like a colander, or a bowl-shaped utensil with holes in it, that filters out water after cooking pasta or rice. A comprehensive security strategy requires multiple security layers and tools.
Three of these security layers include the next generation secure workplace or endpoint security, intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDPS), and security information and event management (SIEM)
Next Generation Secure Workplace
Syntax’s Next Generation Secure Workplace is a preventative and protective technology targeted at 96 percent of a company’s real risk.
It prevents and identifies malware, phishing, and hacking tools through advanced detective technologies, including user behavior analytics.
- Quickly recognize value, in as little as five days. The ramp up time is 5 days. This offering can be deployed from start to finish in minutes/hours where you get coverage from Cisco’s Talos Intelligence Group for billions of threats, and Syntax’s security operations center (SOC) coverage for indication of compromises (IOCs) with custom analysis.
- Stop advanced attacks at your endpoints and make advanced malware protection (AMP) an integral part of your security posture.
- Bring control to your environment, ensuring you can respond to your security alarms.
- Overcome the security talent shortage. The high cost of valuable and trained security professionals doesn’t have to hold you back.
- Prevent and identify malware. Through advanced detective technologies, you can prevent phishing and hacking.
- 24×7 security coverage
- Advanced analysis of files and indications of compromise
- Indication of compromise (IOC) research and behavior analysis
- IDPS security operations center (SOC) response on identified endpoints
- File and network trajectory analysis
- Next generation protection from ransomware
- Reports on malware blocked prior to detonation
- Reports of traffic at category level
- Reports on malware penetrations and behaviors
Why Your Company Should Have Intrusion Detection Protection Systems (IDPS)
IDPS helps you stay in compliance with regulations and laws.
IDPS Monitoring and Management
Syntax’s IDPS monitoring and management offering helps you provide more contextual data about your network behavior and helps you fine tune your security.
Healthcare Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPPA)
PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) (PCI)
Defense Federal Acquisition Regulation Supplement (DFARS)
You can increase operational efficiency and reduce security overhead by separating actionable security events from the noise, helping you prioritize your security threats.
- Secure your network and gain more control and visibility. Intrusion detection provides the control while intrusion protection provides the visibility.
- Improve your security posture. Monitor your network traffic at different endpoints and gain visibility into traffic.
- Enhance your threat management capabilities. Get more value from IDPS.
- Better detect, monitor, manage and protect your network. It is important to have a comprehensive and consistent framework.
- Multiprotocol Label Switching (MPLS) / Internet Edge IDPS management
- On-premise IDPS monitoring and management
- Private IDPS management console with access for manual reporting
- IDPS management console for Security Operations Center (SOC) alerting and reporting
- Maintenance and management of Cisco’s Firepower Management Center (FMC)
- Maintenance and management of Cisco’s Firepower Sensors
- 24/7 coverage of security incidents and assistance with remediation
- Weekly reporting
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) as a Service
Security Information and Event Management, or SIEM for short, provides a real-time analysis of security alerts generated by applications and network hardware. Syntax’s SIEM as a Service provides you with threat protection, increases your regulatory compliance, and helps you avoid the capital expenses and operational complexity associated with an on-premise SIEM solution.
SIEM as a Service delivers the aggregate detail of event data across your environment, with a team of highly skilled security professionals who work as an extension of your team, and provide reliable, proactive monitoring, response and analysis.
- Determine what is and what is not a threat. SIEM as a Service will help you prioritize your daily security threats.
- Meet your threat management and compliance requirements. Select the right approach and solution for your unique needs.
- Take advantage of a tool to enhance your threat protection and compliance reporting. Operationalize the complexity without putting your SIEM solution on-site.
- Not all security threats are created equal so prioritize them. SIEM as a Service can help you overcome a lack of internal resources and expertise to manage an SIEM deployment.
- Syntax provides 24/7 security coverage
- Syntax configures the SIEM with rules to help you identify possible threats
- Syntax’s managed security services team proactively monitors the SIEM and investigates alerts triggered by the SIEM
- When threats are identified, Syntax helps with remediation actions
- When investigated alerts are not deemed to be threats (aka “false positives”), Syntax helps you update rules to improve future alerts
- Deployed SIEM. Buy a SIEM solution and manage it yourself on-site
- Co-Managed SIEM. Buy a SIEM and have a managed security services provider help you support it
- As-a-Service SIEM. Full operational expenditures (OPEX) model for SIEM and operations
