Managed Security Services & Solutions
There’s no silver bullet for security. Syntax can help you develop a multi-layer, comprehensive security strategy to protect your systems.
It’s Not a Matter of If, But When and How Often You’ll Be Hacked.
With the rapidly increasing rate of zero-day exploits and the commercialization of malware toolkits, it’s no longer a question of if you will be hacked, but when and how often. This is why it is critical to have a multi-layer security posture and strategy. Syntax has developed a comprehensive set of Security Solutions and Services used to protect your systems whether on-premises, with a service provider like Syntax, or in the cloud. Our Security Solutions and Services include securing your systems all the way to your end user’s devices.
The 4 Primary Pillars of a Structured Security Posture
There are four main pillars of a comprehensive security strategy: Perimeter Security (Firewall and IDS/IPS), Endpoint Protection, Vulnerability Assessment and Management, and Security Information and Event Management (SIEM). We couple those pillars with our Security Operations Center (SOC) Services to ensure consistent response in the event of a security incident. These four pillars are built on a foundation of a solid Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery strategy. This ensures you recover in the event of a security breach or another critical business event.

Syntax Security Operations Center (SOC)
All of Syntax’s Security Services are managed and monitored by Syntax’s SOC staffed 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year. Our customers find this critical because acquiring and retaining talented security professionals in today’s competitive environment is challenging. By utilizing Syntax’s SOC, you can transfer the heavy lifting of security analysis for your environment to Syntax. We provide our clients with an industry-leading suite of security tools, so your IT staff can focus on running your business.
Endpoint Protection and Perimeter Security
Security traditionally started and ended with a firewall or Intrusion Detection and Prevention System (IDS/IPS). Perimeter Security, while important, is not enough to stop a hacker since they can still exploit services allowed through the firewall, like a running web server in your enterprise resource planning (ERP) environment. Pair your perimeter protection with endpoint solutions so you can stop malware and ransomware from executing on an individual device. This will prevent the spread of infection internally from patient zero. Syntax’s Security Solutions provide advanced endpoint detection systems that use artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning (ML) to identify suspicious activity. This activity is blocked or quarantined so the Syntax SOC can complete a full analysis.
Vulnerability Assessment and Management
Syntax offers Vulnerability Management Services to help you mitigate risk by reducing the potential exploits available in your environment. Syntax develops a risk score for each vulnerability, by assessing the Common Vulnerability and Exposures (CVE) score and considering advanced heuristics such as how susceptible a system is to exploit and the criticality of the system to the business. Once prioritized, Syntax develops remediation plans for identified vulnerabilities coupled with management of plan execution. These ongoing vulnerability management activities can be paired with Syntax’s Vulnerability Assessments to validate the effectiveness of corporate security policies and procedures. Syntax helps you meet these requirements through comprehensive security audit services utilizing white and/or gray box penetration tests.
Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)
Syntax’s SIEM Services provide a consolidated platform to manage all of your security content and provide forensics in light of a security event. This one central pane of glass for real-time analysis of security information enables your organization to focus on business and security policies, procedures, and controls instead of individual tools to identify unexpected or unwanted activities and take appropriate action. Syntax provides customized data collectors to normalize all your data sources to the Common Information Model (CIM) to support your analysis. Syntax will also create tailored dashboards for your content tied to business metrics and key performance indicators (KPIs) in support of your security policies and mandates. This allows the data to be summarized so it is actionable and relevant, reducing noise and operator fatigue.
Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery
The final component that underpins all Syntax’ Security Solutions and Services is Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery Services. Syntax can help you develop, maintain, and perform the necessary tests to ensure you can successfully recover in the event of a disaster. This disaster could be due to a security event, a natural disaster, or other major interruption to business activities.
