PROTECT YOUR BUSINESS AGAINST TODAY'S CYBER THREATS​

Powernet's Managed cyber Security Bundles

The cyber market is constantly changing. Advancing IT environments are complex, and with the landscape constantly evolving, there are more vulnerabilities to cyber-attacks than ever before. 

Last year alone, major data breaches affected four high-profile companies in Australia. The average cost of a data breach in Australia is climbing 9.8% yearly and is currently at $3.35 million per breach. The biggest threats are ransomware and phishing emails, and unfortunately, a large percentage of SMB’s don’t survive a major cyber-attack. Given those large high-profile organisations that were breached are investing significantly in cyber security, what does this mean for small/medium-sized businesses that don’t typically invest as much?

We have designed our security bundles to be accessible for our cilents of all sizes.

Endpoint Security

What is it? 

Endpoint Security (e.g. Anti-Virus/Anti-Ransomware Software) helps protect your computer against malicious tools and code used by cyber-criminals or aggressive marketing (Spyware). Next Generation Endpoint Security software
is designed to monitor all facets of your computer software, ready to detect traditional viruses and suspicious behaviour that more advanced malware might use. A system without Endpoint Security is just like a house with an open door.

Email Security

What is it? 

Security to monitor emails that are being sent and received. Well designed and configured Email Security is required to filter unwanted email, such as spam, phishing attacks, embedded malware, and malicious web links, while continuing to deliver legitimate emails. 

Email protection is critical in today’s climate, as it’s a very popular delivery mechanism for threats that target organisations and their staff, causing significant amounts of financial and reputational loss. For example, a phishing email is designed to trick users into giving up sensitive information, approving falsified bills, or downloading malware to infect the company network.

Backups & Disaster Recovery

What is it? 

Backing up critical data is essential. Backups protect you from disaster situations, both accidental and malicious. They protect against human errors, hardware failure, virus attacks, power failure, and natural disasters. Backups can help save time and money in recovery if these failures occur. 

However, having a backup is not enough. They need to be regularly monitored, maintained, and tested to ensure their integrity. Restorations need to be planned and rehearsed in case of data loss or a disaster so the backups can be put to efficient use to save time and money when that comes.

Security Awareness Training

What is it? 

Security Awareness Training is the process of educating and testing employees to help protect your business against cyber-crimes including phishing and other social-engineering attacks. Within the three main building blocks of a layered IT security strategy: People and the Human element is an important one. 

Security Awareness Training helps every employee in your organisation recognize, avoid, and report potential threats that can compromise critical data and systems including phishing, malware, ransomware, and spyware. As part of the training, mock phishing and other attack simulations are typically used to test and reinforce good behaviour.

Application Hardening

What is it? 

Ensuring your software remains fully patched is critical. When vulnerabilities in software are found, vendors of the software release patches to fix the vulnerability. It is particularly important for these patches to be applied in a timely manner, before attackers have the chance to exploit them. This is one way of ‘hardening’ Applications on computers, as recommended by the ACSC’s Essential 8 Mitigation Strategies. 

Additionally, having a centrally managed platform that will scan the entire corporate network for all network attached devices for vulnerabilities is key. Many organisations will monitor network attached devices, such as switches, printers and wireless access points for connectivity, but not their firmware update status. This proposal will cover vulnerability management reporting but not remediation. Due to the nature of vulnerability remediation, a separate scope will need to be provided on a case-by-case basis for remediation.

Identity Protection

What is it? 

Identity Protection refers to many security methods, but a general view can be described as the practice of making sure that company (and personal) information that makes up the online or real-life self is protected and not stolen. If attackers can steal parts or all your sensitive data related to your identity, the attacker may impersonate you and could gain access to your bank account, company email mailbox and online data.

Microsoft 365 Alerting & Monitoring

What is it? 

When it comes to cybersecurity, organisations need to stay ahead of the game to detect and stop unauthorised activity in client applications by immediately locking the account when a breach occurs. 

The technology landscape for many organisations has evolved and unfortunately so have cybersecurity threats. These threats come from external and internal sources, they find holes in networks and also infiltrate through the software as a Service applications that many clients use every day to run their businesses. Constant but unintrusive, real-time monitoring facilitates application hygiene necessary for proper end user protection in an evolving landscape.

24/7 Security Operations Centre (SOC)

What is it? 

A Security Operations Center (SOC) is a managed detection and response service that leverages a threat monitoring platform to detect malicious and suspicious activity across three critical attack vectors: Endpoint, Network and Cloud. Trained and certified Cybersecurity Analysts then hunt, triage and escalate when actionable threats are discovered.

Penetration Testing

What is it? 

Penetration testing is an automated network penetration test platform that allows organisations to conduct a fullscale automated network penetration test at any time to assess their infrastructure. In a time where news of data breaches is becoming “the new normal,” the need for organisations to evaluate their overall risk and avoid becoming the next victim has become critical. Organisations simply can’t protect themselves from risks they’re unaware of and require a simplified process of identifying new threats within their environment on an on-going basis, at any time.

Vulnerability Management

What is it? 

Vulnerability management is a continuous, proactive, and often automated process that keeps your computer systems, networks, and enterprise applications safe from cyberattacks and data breaches. As such, it is an important part of an overall security program. By identifying, assessing, and addressing potential security weaknesses, organisations can help prevent attacks and minimise damage if one does occur. 

The goal of vulnerability management is to reduce the organisation’s overall risk exposure by mitigating as many vulnerabilities as possible. This can be a challenging task, given the number of potential vulnerabilities and the limited resources available for remediation. Vulnerability management should be a continuous process to keep up with new and emerging threats and changing environments.

Data Security

What is it? 

Data security is the practice of protecting digital information from unauthorised access, corruption, or theft throughout its entire lifecycle. It’s a concept that encompasses every aspect of information security from the physical security of hardware and storage devices to administrative and access controls, as well as the logical security of software applications. It also includes organisational policies and procedures. 

When properly implemented, robust data security strategies will protect an organisation’s information assets against cybercriminal activities, but they also guard against insider threats and human error, which remains among the leading causes of data breaches today. Data security involves deploying tools and technologies that enhance the organisation’s visibility into where its critical data resides and how it is used. Ideally, these tools should be able to apply protections like encryption, data masking, and redaction of sensitive files, and should automate reporting to streamline audits and adhering to regulatory requirements.
