Network Security

Defend Digital Assets from External and Internal Network Threats

Your network is the lifeblood of your business, handling all the data that flows among applications and touching every endpoint. In short, it makes everything run. When cyber criminals, employees, contractors, and other third parties compromise an endpoint, it paves the way for your entire infrastructure to be infiltrated, putting your digital assets at risk. That looming threat makes it vital to detect and remediate attacks that cross the network, on an ongoing basis.

To protect your network, Veristor can help you build a comprehensive security strategy that begins by monitoring all the data that traverses your infrastructure. We’ll also show you the solutions that enable you to analyze network traffic and establish a baseline of normal application and end-user behaviors. From that vantage point, you can more easily find threat actors and isolate them to mitigate attacks. And with that intelligence, you’ll no longer need to chase down false positives, saving time for activities that give your business a competitive edge.


Network Hardening

It’s critical to establish barriers on network perimeters to keep the bad guys from breaking in and taking down the IT infrastructure. By deploying next-gen firewalls along with intrusion detection and prevention, businesses can empower themselves to prevent attacks. Network Hardening enables IT to take on this challenge by:

  • Preventing cyber criminals from breaching networks and executing attacks
  • Stopping denial-of-service attacks that can take your business offline
  • Validating security policies and assessing the impact of new vulnerabilities

Network Visibility

Gaining visibility across network activity is critical in order to identify when security threats bypass perimeter defenses. Effective network traffic analysis identifies normal activity vs. anomalous activity so IT teams can conduct forensics and isolate attacks before digital assets are compromised. Network Visibility enables IT teams to do this by:

  • Applying user context to all application traffic, including encrypted content
  • Inspecting all traffic to automatically detect and prevent known, zero-day, and advanced threats
  • Stopping vulnerability exploits and blocking outbound command-and control-traffic

Network Segmentation

If a cyber attack slips through perimeter defenses, it can move around freely and hijack your sensitive information. Preventing the attack’s lateral movement is vital in the effort to limit the potential damage. By breaking networks into smaller partitions, Network Segmentation helps IT resolve this issue by:

  • Reducing network attack surfaces and eliminating unwanted access to specific segments
  • Creating a multi-layer infrastructure that prevents unwanted lateral movement by cyber criminals
  • Limiting the extent to which malware can spread across the network

Application Protection

A tactic often applied by cybercriminals is to leverage applications as an attack vector to breach networks and then take over the control of other digital assets. By applying techniques such as software-defined networking, web application firewalls, and domain name system security, IT can defend against rogue application attacks. Application Protection helps achieve this objective by:

  • Generating holistic network management views that improve security incident response and forensics
  • Protecting website applications against cross-site scripting, SQL injection, and path traversal attacks
  • Ensuring end users are not unknowingly redirected to spoofed websites containing malware

Network Access Control

Businesses need to protect their networks from internal end users—including those with malicious intent as well as user accounts that have been compromised by external cyber criminals. By applying the industry principles of Authentication, Authorization, and Accounting, IT can identify users and devices and then grant access to valid access requests. Network access control allows IT to effectively protect wired, wireless, and VPN networks by:

  • Providing role-based and device-based access for IoT devices, employees, contractors, and guests
  • Enabling users to securely onboard devices for enterprise use, based on internal policies
  • Applying contextual user analysis and policy controls when determining network access

Network Security Roadmap and Assessment Consulting

Network security solutions must be able to monitor and analyze network traffic for visibility that stops attacks before they hit. We can help you identify your organization’s security challenges and needs with a comprehensive review of the people, processes, and technologies that are currently in place. Together, we can build analytics and forensics into your security capabilities in a way that supports your business objectives and begins with the highest impact technology moves.
