DIGITAL SECURITY

Endpoint Security: Standards-based. Protected. Analytical.

ENDPOINT SECURITY

Endpoint security is defined as security of different endpoints of the network, including end-user devices such as mobile devices, laptops, desktops, and hardware such as servers. Endpoint security addresses the risks presented by devices connected to the network since these devices could carry information that might prove malicious to an enterprise security space. Devices - including smartphones, tablets, laptops - when connected to a network can provide an entry point for threats that expand over the entire network. What endpoint security seeks is the ability to secure every endpoint that is connected to a network, by denying access or by blocking risky activity at any point of entry. With modern-day enterprises adopting new practices that bring on new devices onto the network, enterprise network security is becoming more and more of a challenge.
Endpoint security acts as a supplemental measure to an enterprise’s centralized security solution. This extra layer in addition to the centralized security solution can act as an additional layer at the point of entry for breaches. This works by mandating devices to meet certain security standards before being granted network access; this allows enterprises to maintain greater control, even when the number of access points and devices increase. Endpoint security can also monitor and block malicious activity.

ENDPOINT SECURITY PRODUCTS FEATURES & FUNCTIONALITY 

Data loss prevention
detects potential data breaches/data ex-filtration transmissions and prevents them by monitoring, detecting and blocking sensitive data.
Insider threat protection
Protection against security issues that come about from internal risks, such as employees, former employees, or temporary business associates.
Disk, endpoint, and email encryption
Turning important data from sources, such as disks, endpoint, and emails, into code to prevent unauthorized access. 
Application whitelisting/control
The authorization of only a specific number of software on a computer system in order to prevent the deployment of malicious software that could harm the computer system. 
Network access control
A system that sets certain standards, requirements, or policies for endpoint devices, restricting the availability of the network to endpoint devices.
Privileged user control
Similar to the network access control, privileged user control allows specific administrative access to critical information or systems.
Double Endpoint security isn’t solely conducted from devices, however. Typical endpoint security solutions provide a two-pronged approach, with security software installed on a central server or management console along with software installed on individual devices. 
Double Endpoint Security is available for the enterprise and consumers.

APPLICATION FIREWALLS

Secure, Defensive, Important.

In the modern day, web-based applications and services have risen in both volume and size. With everything running on this expansive network, the landscape and scope of information delivery and exchange has changed. This platform leads to an increased availability of information, a greater ease of access, and the ever-expanding capabilities around the web have increased operations as well as productivity. As a consequence, both consumers and enterprise leaders alike led to a heavy reliance on web-based services and the use of web services for internal information as well as their data.
In the modern landscape, corporate and organizational assets are at risk, leading to a risk of financial, disruption of crucial services, IP, identity theft, and etc. Web applications invite different types of vulnerabilities and hacking techniques, such as SQL injection, DDoS attacks, DNS cache poisoning, cross-site request forgery, and cross-site scripting.
The complexities of these breaches and complexity of different breaching technologies that are continuously evolving leads to businesses requiring higher levels of security of their web-based services in order to protect valuable data. This includes services such as network firewalls, systems for intrusion prevention, anti malware gateways, and content filtering. 

ADVANCED THREAT PROTECTION

Advanced threat protection, or ATP, is a category of security solutions that act as a defence against more advanced malware or hacks targeting sensitive data. ATP can be available as a managed service, such as Alert Logic that runs a security operations center, or software. Advanced threat protection differs in approaches and components, but most have a foundation set up around security solutions for endpoint, email gateways, malware protection system, a centralized dashboard or management console, and devices connected to the network. Security companies, when employing ATP, focus on prevention. Detecting potential threats early is key, because by preventing potential threats, the infection never has a chance to access critical data or breach systems. This is why it is important for CIOs and IT directors to consider a security systems approach that is more proactive rather than reactive, and employing a system that fits their security and compliance needs early. 

Threats must be prioritized by the damage they may potentially incur and the sensitivity of the data at risk

Preventative measures
Mitigate threats before they harm enterprise systems.
Preventing the proliferation
Halting the proliferation of malicious activity that is currently in progress
Interrupting Attacks
Breaking the attack’s lifecycle to make sure that the threat won’t be able to proceed past a certain point
Counter Act
Counter-acting the actions that occurred as a result of a breach

SIEM -Security Information and Event Management

Double SIEM, or security information and event management, is the ability for enterprise security to produce relevant data about an enterprise’s security in a simplified, single point of view. This allows decision makers and security staff to spot malicious activity much more easily and manage it better.  Other benefits of employing such a system also allows an analysis that is real time, which allows security personnel to take actions against threats much more quickly. It not only acts as a repository for security data, but it also provides an analysis of key trends and generates reporting for compliance. Thus, with these features, it makes a SIEM system not only more efficient, but necessary for threat analysis and identification, as well as recovery from security events.
What type of data does a SIEM program collect? It usually collects logs and data, as well as other security-related documents. SIEM programs work through employing collection agents that works as a hierarchy to gather security information from events from different sources. These include endpoints, other end-user devices, network equipment, servers, antiviruses, firewalls, and even intrusion prevention systems. These agents then send the information gathered from events to a management console, whose function is to perform inspections with utmost scrutiny and records anomalies.
A SIEM system could either run an algorithm or statistical correlation engine to log anomalies or can be based on a defined set of rules. Edge collectors only collect certain events to pass through a centralized management console. The purpose of an edge collector is to reduce the amount of data being sent and stored, saving cost. However, with an edge collector, relevant events may be filtered out much too soon.
