Strengthening IT infrastructure by reducing possible attack paths
When using any complex system, some functionality is inevitably left unused or incorrectly configured, which can become a breach in the protection of your virtual fortress.
Removing and correctly configuring this functionality will allow you to close the hidden pathways before the enemy uses them.
Strengthening systems and networks, also called hardening, often becomes one of the first steps towards improving the cybersecurity of an organization, and mainly consists of disabling some of the functions, limiting their capabilities, modernizing and improving components, etc. This significantly limits the capabilities of attackers, since it reduces the attack surface, i.e. the number of potentially vulnerable spots.
Server administrators often have a blurry view of their systems. Therefore, the key role in strengthening systems is played by the “view from the outside”, which is easiest to get with our help.
As MSPs, we have a lot of experience and are constantly learning new things, so our recommendations are up to date. We are guided by CIS Benchmarks, NIST 800-53, and other standards.
Our experience and qualifications allow us to successfully protect almost any system and technology, from Windows NT/95 to the most modern cloud solutions, DevOps and CI/CD technologies.
|With stability in mind|
We analyze the potential impact of each recommendation to ensure the continuity of your business processes. We help with testing and secure implementation of changes.
The absence of a conflict of interest allows us to speak directly about the problems we have found and look for ways to solve them. Such efficiency and completeness of coverage is often unattainable when customers perform the hardening with their own resources, since their system administrators are overwhelmed with the routine that they consider more important.
Our services will allow you to take an objective look at your IT landscape and identify the changes that will have a lasting effect, reducing the work of monitoring security events, incident response, and mitigating the consequences of attacks.
