Protecting your organisation’s digital assets from cyber threats is more important than ever. Endpoint Security, Email Gateway Security, Zero Trust Network Access, Firewall and SASE, Web Application Firewall, and Network Access Control are all critical components that can be used as part of a comprehensive cybersecurity strategy. These components work together to safeguard against attacks, prevent data breaches, and defend against web-based and network threats. By implementing a range of security solutions, organisations can ensure that their systems, networks, and data remain secure, safeguarding their reputation and productivity in the face of ever-evolving cyber threats.
The objective of endpoint security is to safeguard electronic devices such as desktops, laptops, mobile phones, and servers against possible security risks, including cyber attacks and data breaches. Initially, traditional antivirus software was used to shield the devices from malware and other similar threats. However, traditional endpoint security measures are now deemed less effective due to the emergence of sophisticated and targeted cyber attacks.
To counteract such threats, next-generation endpoint security has come into existence as a more extensive and proactive approach to endpoint security. Next-generation endpoint security utilises various techniques such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, and behavioural analysis to identify and respond to real-time threats. It differs from traditional endpoint security by providing continuous monitoring, threat detection, and response capabilities, thus making it more effective in shielding endpoints from advanced security threats.
Endpoint security is particularly crucial in the context of remote users who are not protected by a firewall. With the increase in remote work, more employees are accessing sensitive data and applications from outside the corporate network, thus increasing the risk of security breaches. Endpoint security can help safeguard these remote devices from potential threats and ensure the protection of sensitive data.
Mail (SMTP) traffic has been popular since the beginning of the internet and is still the most widely used medium for introducing malware into an organisation. More than 90% of all security breaches are caused by Email. This results that the Email gateway security is a critical component of an organisation’s overall security strategy.
The primary goal of email gateway security is to prevent spam and malware from reaching a user’s inbox. Email gateway security typically involves the use of anti-spam and anti-malware filters, as well as content filtering and data loss prevention features. Email gateway security solutions may be deployed on-premises or in the cloud and can be integrated with other security tools. They may also be able to identify and block phishing attacks, detect and block outbound spam, and include email encryption and archiving capabilities. These solutions use signature-based detection, behavioural analysis, and reputation-based filtering to identify spam and malware. In addition to preventing threats, email gateway security solutions may also help improve email system performance by reducing the volume of unwanted messages.
The Zero Trust security model has gained popularity in the Cyber Security community due to its effectiveness in protecting against advanced threats and mitigating the risks associated with complex IT environments. This approach assumes that threats can come from both internal and external sources, and focuses on authenticating and authorising all users, devices, and systems, regardless of their location or level of trust. By requiring continuous verification and authorisation of all access attempts, organisations can prevent unauthorised access and reduce the risk of security breaches.
Syntory offers a range of services to help organisations implement the Zero Trust security model. These include assessing the organisation’s current security posture, designing and implementing Zero Trust security controls and technologies, and providing ongoing monitoring and support to ensure the effectiveness of the Zero Trust model. Syntory’s team of experts can assist with the deployment of multi-factor authentication, network segmentation, micro-segmentation, and access control policies, as well as provide training and education to ensure that employees understand the importance of security best practices. By partnering with Syntory, organisations can achieve a more secure and resilient IT environment that can better protect against both internal and external threats.
Syntory’s Firewall Portfolio offers cutting-edge security solutions to protect your digital assets, as firewalls have been one of the most trusted internet security solutions for many years. However, with the growing number of cyber threats and the changing location of data storage, the role of the firewall has evolved significantly.
Previously, we only talked about stateful firewalls and Unified Threat Management (UTM). Still, today’s firewalls follow data wherever it is stored, and Syntory understands this reality. We do not impose any value judgment on where our customers should store their data, nor do we dictate where the firewall should be located.
Our next-generation firewalls are no longer standalone solutions; they are part of a comprehensive security concept that includes Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), data lakes, and endpoint security. They still function as the primary gatekeeper to the internet, but they also provide valuable data that can be used to take action. This can include isolating endpoints, closing switch ports, and segmenting networks to minimise potential damage.
At Syntory, we understand that Cyber Security is a critical issue that needs to be taken seriously. That’s why we offer top-of-the-line firewall solutions that provide unparalleled protection against emerging threats. Our solutions are tailored to meet the unique needs of your organisation, so you can rest assured that your digital assets are safe and secure. Contact us today to learn more about our firewall portfolio and how we can help safeguard your organisation’s valuable data.
In today’s digital age, having a strong online presence is essential for any company. A web server/web application is a fundamental component of a company’s online presence as it serves as the face of the company to the outside world. In other words, it is a flagship of the company that showcases its products, services, and overall brand image.
However, with this accessibility comes great vulnerability. Web servers/web applications are constantly under attack from hackers who try to exploit their numerous vulnerabilities. The consequences of such attacks can be dire, ranging from data theft, financial loss, brand damage, and even legal repercussions.
A regular firewall is not enough to protect web applications from such attacks. This is where a Web Application Firewall (WAF) comes into play. A WAF is a security solution that is specifically designed to protect web applications from various types of attacks. It does this by filtering out malicious traffic, blocking unauthorised access, and detecting and preventing attacks before they can cause any damage.
Installing a WAF is critical for any company that wants to protect its web applications. However, this requires a high level of expertise, which is often limited in the market. This is where Syntory comes in. As one of the few Cyber Security integrators, Syntory has a team of WAF specialists who are ready to assist customers in this complex yet important matter.
Syntory’s team of WAF specialists are highly skilled and knowledgeable in the field of web application security. They have a deep understanding of the latest threats and attack methods used by hackers and know how to mitigate them. They can help companies choose the right WAF solution that meets their specific needs and implement it seamlessly, without disrupting their business operations.
In addition to installing and configuring a WAF, Syntory’s team of specialists also provides ongoing maintenance and support to ensure that the WAF continues to protect the web applications effectively. They constantly monitor the web applications for any suspicious activity and take immediate action if they detect any potential threats.
Business networks are changing rapidly, causing new threats to emerge, and creating unknown risks that network managers need to consider.
By implementing Network Access Control (NAC) in a customers’ network, we can ensure that only authenticated and authorised devices get secure access and can communicate with the network in a secure and compliant manner.
The expansion of remote working, guest users and BYOD can make complete network visibility hard to achieve. NAC can tackle this blind spot and gain visibility as it maps all connected devices, the user profiles, and their assigned policies.
From a security perspective, NAC minimises the growing threats from cyber attacks by excluding unauthorised or suspicious actors or downgrading their policies. When an endpoint is affected by an attack, it can be neutralised and quarantined by NAC so lateral movement throughout the network can be restricted.
