Being fully prepared to combat cyber threats takes a number of forms; from security of users’ accounts, to the security state of devices, to incidents happening across a network all contribute to a robust cyber posture.
Control:IT allows for the reporting of device preparedness (i.e. are all devices encrypted, are all patches up to date, are files sync’d to somewhere secure) to user preparedness (i.e. are strong passwords and Multi-Factor Authentication enforced and used) and more. This grants a constant overview of areas withing the estate that may be prone to risk, and a clear route forward to remediating these threats.
In preparation for – and in the event of – an incident, the availability of real-time, collated information from across the IT estate is crucial to identifying threats and incidents when they occur, and understanding the best course of action for remediation. Our Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) platform allows us to collect logging data from every device across the estate in one place, giving a “bird’s eye view” of every event occurring. This allows us to both predict, detect and track threats and incidents across an entire infrastructure and act quickly and effectively to contain an incident.
