Cybersecurity - Keeping safe online
The working world has gone cyber and so have the threats our organisations face, from outside and within. Whether it’s malware, phishing, ransomware or IoT infiltration, cyber threats are evolving and getting more sophisticated and advanced every day. That’s why it’s so important that your security solutions measure up.
Humans are still the weakest link
No matter how quickly our tech advances, people are still the driving force behind it. Without us, tech would have no place – which means despite all of the security investments and tools you have implemented, your security is only as strong as the people who interact with it. Luckily, there are lots of ways to make your weakest links stronger!
It all starts with education. Is your team still following the password hygiene practices you set in place? Are you all familiar with cyber essentials? Have they done any end-user awareness training? Are they still careful when opening links from outside the organisation? – Phishing remains one of the most widely used tactics because it’s so easy to just click on a link, without thinking.
Training your employees in the basics of cybersecurity is key to making your security protocol water tight. The second part is security software and services.
So, what tools can help you improve your security?
Having worked with the Ministry of Defence for over 30 years, we’ve developed a comprehensive suite of security tools, from software offerings to consultancy, training and 24/7 monitoring.
Here’s what we offer:
- Penetration testing
- Security awareness training
- Managed identity and access
- Managed firewalls
- Security risk assessments
- Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)
- Data Loss Prevention (DLP)
- Security Consultancy and Advisory
- NetClean – a new service which provides insider threat protection against child sexual abuse material.
- Compliance Services
- Security, Orchestration, Automation and Response (SOAR)
But the best way to future-proof your business is via a SOC!
Essentially, a Security Operations Centre (SOC) is a team of cybersecurity experts who are responsible for identifying, analysing and responding to malicious threats in real time to prevent breaches and compromise.
Our SOC team is a group of cybersecurity specialists whose expertise, agility and flexibility have given us a fantastic reputation in the public, corporate and defence sectors. Together, our SOC manager, security analysts and incident responders offer something a little different to the usual cybersecurity 'solutions':
Every business has different needs, so every boxxe SOC solution is unique. We assign a service delivery manager and SOC champion to each client, so that you have everything needed to respond efficiently to any security issues.
The longer a security incident goes on, the more severe it becomes, so we take an automation first approach – combining our analysts with advanced tech to get the job done effectively and at speed.
We use leading core technologies. Our focus is getting you back online, using reliable tech – because the longer you're offline, the more your profit, brand awareness and credibility suffers.
We treat every client as if it is boxxe. So, we constantly update, adapt and pivot our solutions to make sure we can respond appropriately to every threat as it arises.
SERVICE LEVEL AGREEMENTS
We have strong SLAs to make sure you receive a highly responsive service across the board.
MANAGED THREAT DETECTION AND RESPONSE
This is a major component of what makes our SOC exceptional. The MTDR team detects threats and responds swiftly to contain attacks, giving you 24/7 protection, rapid incident response and latest threat intelligence.
More cybersecurity services we offer
The above are only the tip of the iceberg. We also offer:
Proactive threat hunting where we identify potential threats before they can be exploited
Vulnerability management and patching to eliminate software vulnerabilities from your company in a quick, timely manner
Dark web monitoring where we scrape the dark web for anything associated with your domains, including lost credentials.
Attack surface management to detect and monitor all points of access vulnerable to entry form unauthorised persons
Misconfiguration service which allows us to detect, modify and remediate misconfigurations caused by human error.
Incident Response and Forensics capabilities to identify how an attack occurred, investigating and analysing the root cause
At boxxe, we believe a SOC is an integral part of any sustainable business, bringing together tools, expertise and oversight into one centre responsible for monitoring, detecting, responding and mitigating cyber security threats in real time.
Most importantly, we believe that the best security solutions are developed with the end user in mind – you! So, every security solution is created, developed and implemented alongside you and your team to make sure you get the most out of the service.
We’re in a pioneering digital era where high quality, impactful security matters. Make sure you’ve got that covered, so you can put your effort into the areas that matter most to you.
