An overview of network risk
Threats to network infrastructure, systems and services are constantly evolving. Awareness of these threats and the ability to implement effective countermeasures is critical to maintaining a proactive security posture.
Evaluating risk exposure and identifying vulnerabilities through a thorough investigation of your threat landscape is a critical part of building a secure infrastructure. This infrastructure should be fully managed and security should proliferate from your central core out to end-point devices, supported by regular reviews, testing and process management.
There is a plethora of security technologies to suit specific requirements and provide the desired level of assurance such as: network access control (NAC), public key infrastructures (PKI), network authentication, network segregation, virtual private networks (VPN), adaptive security appliances (ASA), data loss prevention (DLP) software, virus and malware solutions, traffic filtering and packet inspection, intrusion detection systems (IDS), intrusion prevention systems (IPS).
Who is TCAS for?
This service is for small to medium-sized enterprises that need to comply with industry standards, governmental standards or regulatory requirements.
A preliminary scoping exercise is essential to understand business requirements, assess current maturity and infrastructure, and establish points of contact with senior stakeholders.
How does TCAS work?
The TCAS consultancy assesses your current infrastructure and cyber security defences for efficiency and weaknesses, and provides follow-up remedial advice.
Technical architecture service
Our technical architecture service provides clients with network design consultancy focusing on network components such as gateways, firewalls, routers, switches, load balancing, WAN optimisers, vLANs, VPNs, and Cloud services, and on the effective methods available of deploying these technologies to maximise security and return on investment.
If you need additional assurance, we offer a CREST-certified penetration testing team that can identify and remediate network vulnerabilities.
Network monitoring evaluation service
The network monitoring evaluation service is designed to enhance your network security by selecting, deploying and configuring suitable network tools and monitoring software. This will typically include advice on the following: rogue system detection, endpoint protection, malware detection, email filtering, mobile device management, web traffic filtering and data loss prevention.
Network applications service
The network applications service provides an effective strategy for visualising and understanding network traffic, providing assurance that your network is secure. We provide consultancy on key technologies and whether or not they are applicable to your network infrastructure.
This is beneficial if you adopt or plan to introduce bring-your-own-device (BYOD) working to the workplace.
