Enhanced Security: Modern Cybersecurity Tools

OXEN’s  Enhanced Security managed IT services package includes exciting modern cybersecurity features. We know that the businesses and organizations we serve need increasingly advanced tools to combat sophisticated cyber threats. Here we want to talk about what these tools are and how they can benefit your business.

Enhanced Security includes:

  • endpoint protection (EPP)
  • endpoint detection and recovery (EDR)
  • a virtual SOC for 24/7 endpoint monitoring & alerting
  • tools and detailed analytics to gain insight on incidents

Endpoint Protection & EDR

We’ve previously talked about the importance of endpoint protection in addressing new threats and how it compares to traditional anti-virus. Endpoint protection is not a single tool, but a system of tools and solutions. It’s a comprehensive approach to securing an entire network that looks at behavior in your network and on your devices. Endpoint security is looking for the symptoms of an attack, rather than the IDs or signatures of already identified threats.

This means that endpoint protection, combined with EDR (endpoint detection and recovery), can identify and protect against advanced threats and file-less threats. This means it’s effective against malware, trojans, hacking tools, ransomware, sophisticated malware, memory exploits, and script misuses, among others.

This sort of security protection is a game changer. Endpoint protection can be a better defense against cyberthreats than traditional anti-virus/anti-malware solutions. It also continues to protect the devices of mobile workers who may not always be within your network.

So what does our solution do?

OXEN’s Endpoint Protection Platform consolidates attack prevention, detection, response, and recovery into a single agent and single management console. It helps protect against attacks ranging from common threats to nation-grade advanced persistent threats. It also protects across all major operating systems and it can be deployed in the cloud or on-premise.

Virtual SOC

Our Enhanced Security package also includes an exciting new service: a virtual Security Operations Center, or SOC. This type of continuous security monitoring and analysis has previously only been accessible to enterprise-level corporations. We’re excited to now be able to offer an affordable SOC option for small and medium-sized businesses and organizations.

But what does a virtual SOC do for you?

First of all, it provides 24/7 endpoint monitoring and alerting. It’s constantly analyzing your network traffic and activity, as well as the connected devices. It’s collecting and analyzing data, such as behavioral and system data, security logs, software and patches, running processes, files on disk, and more.

The point of this is to constantly look for the symptoms and signs of malicious activity, through behavioral analysis. It’s proactive constant monitoring, rather than reactive.

One of the biggest benefits of SOC services is simple but powerful: it can help detect if you’ve been breached. Keep in mind that no security tool is 100% effective at protection or detection, unfortunately. But still: most security experts acknowledge that it’s a matter of when, not if, you’ll be breached, so any tools that can mitigate the extent and effects of a breach are worthwhile. And a virtual SOC can provide you with forensic data and remediation guidance for incident response procedures. Knowing that you’ve been attacked and knowing where and what data might have been breached allows you to continue being proactive. This in turn helps protect your reputation: Responding to a cyberattack quickly, efficiently, and with knowledge in hand.

Virtual SOC Features

  • 24/7 endpoint monitoring and alerting
  • remediation guidance for incident response procedures
  • data collection and analysis
  • security alerts & ticket generation for detected issues

Tools & Analytics

Endpoint protection and a virtual SOC are huge, but our Enhanced Security solution comes with other tools and analytics too, so you know even more about what’s happening in your network and on your devices. So, our Enhanced Security platform also has features that provide better security and insight, such as:

  • Autonomous and human-driven attack remediation
  • Backed by a team of security analysts
  • Tools and detailed analytics to gain insight on incidents
  • Technical features like cloud intelligence, dynamic whitelisting/blacklisting, and rollback

Enhanced Security Benefits

Protecting your organization and your people is serious business. With threats constantly evolving, OXEN knows that businesses need a new level of protection and new cutting-edge features that are effective and affordable. Enhanced Security provides you with the tools you need, without the hassle of complex management. You don’t need to hire a team of highly skilled security analysts – the platform and support team do it for you.
