Vulnerability Assessment

Why It’s Important To Run Vulnerability Assessment Test On Your Network! find a company that can give them an assessment of their business and home network. There is a serious Cyber war raging for your assets and we must do all we can and more than we can to protect it. So many times we hear about identity theft and for the most part we assume it cannot happen to us while we are on our home or small business networks. This is the furthest thing from the truth. There are millions of vulnerable routers and other devices that thieves can login to everyday. Most consumers are not aware of this. The assumptions are,  when they purchase a router or firewall application it’s safe and there’s nothing else to be done. This is absolutely the furthest thing from the truth. All devices MUST be upgrade as soon as a newer firmware or software is available. It’s a possibility the new firmware release was to patch an exploits.


Intrusion Detection Systems

End Point Protection

The End Point Protection is a technical term refer to the client’s technologies we used to protect your laptop, desktop, smart phones, tablets and other smart devices or devices that fall under the term Internet of Everything (IoT). These devices uses firmware or can be updated to fix vulnerabilities. The EPP is the technology installed on the aforementioned devices to protect them from hackers or those with intentions of doing us harm. There are numerous technologies like virus and malware protections that can be considered as EPP. Traditionally people and organization mistakenly spend too much effort on protecting the perimeter which in this case could be firewall protection, but very small amount of resources on End Point Protection. Too much resource spend on the perimeter is a poor return on your investment. Because of this type of security we get the coconut protection. Hard on the outside, but soft on the inside. This is where Cyber Security Consulting Ops can help you to protect your entire network to include all your End Point clients. Today Cyber Security has to have defense in depth. The coconut security concept is tremendously flawed. To better protect your assets you must have a layered security approach. It should be like a tough onion. To get to the middle a hacker must have to work hard to get to your asset.
