One of the main purposes of the application of security measures is to prevent organizations or websites from cyber breaches, thus enabling it to thrive further.
External Cloud security is typically addressed by most cloud providers.While Cloud providers tempt to address security issues with various services, it is up to the customer to determine how cloud security tools can be utilized to protect their data. Cloud security configuration is still subject to a human error or lack of best practice, affecting a customer’s security posture in the cloud. Customers and cloud providers have different responsibilities that differentiate based on the cloud service.
- Software-as-a-service (SaaS)— Customers are responsible for securing their data and user environment as well as data integrity and data protection.
- Platform-as-a-service (PaaS)— Customers are responsible for securing their data, user access, and applications as well as data integrity and data protection.
- Infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS)— Customers are responsible for securing their complete environment including data, applications, user access, operating systems, virtual network traffic, and communication from their premises to the cloud.
As a result, within public and private cloud, customers are responsible for securing their data and controlling who can access that data. Data security in cloud computing is essential to successfully adopting and gaining public and private cloud benefits. Whether you are considering Microsoft Office 365, Teams, or other SaaS types, you need to plan how the data will be accessed and protected within the environment. For cloud services such as Microsoft Azure or AWS, customers need to have a more comprehensive plan, including operating systems, micros segmentation, virtual network traffic, security policy management and compliance.
Firewall ∙ IPSEC/SSL VPN ∙ IDS/IPS
One of the key aspects of network security infrastructure is the External Network Security or Perimeter Security. Its purpose is to defend and protect the network from both low and high-level attacks, keeping your company safe from cyber breaches and the bad publicity that goes with it.
Our Network and Security Operations Center support team provides turn-key operations with 24/7 monitoring and notification services. X10 Networks values the security of its clients by making sure that specific and critical devices are monitored to lower the risk of non-compliance and increase corporate security posture.
X10 Networks commits to provide consistent IT service support and delivery to your organization by acting as a primary support contact that troubleshoots and provides resolution to both production and non-production systems. X10 network’s designated resources will also undertake preventative work to minimize incidents as much as possible.
Analysis and Response
X10 Networks will work with internal resources and external vendors to address any specific system/network/application issues that pertain to production and non-production environment such as:
• Examples of troubleshooting.
• Analysis and response to firewall security and health events.
• Response to tickets and incidents.
• Device troubleshooting
• 24/7 alerts and notifications of all performance and availability related issues.
Web Application Firewall (WAF) ∙ Database Firewall
Two of the prime digital assets of a company are data and applications. X10 Network’s WAF delivers cyber and network security to secure all data and applications from high-level attacks whether it be in-cloud or on-premises.
We ensure to help you safely migrate apps while maintaining full protection through our cloud and on-premises Web Application Firewall solution offers that have the same set of security policies and management capabilities.
Data Analytics & Threat Detection ∙ SIEM
Cybercrime has become very common, and computers are increasingly being used in criminal activities. Whether they do it for fun or for a reason, they keep tricking people, hacking, stealing data and money, and even disrupting governments’ daily work. They hide from the authorities by acting carefully and staying anonymous.
Unfortunately, this problem is only getting worse. It has been reported that since the Covid-19 pandemic started in 2020, cybersecurity attacks have increased by 300%. These cybercrimes can result in significant losses for an organization due to the theft of sensitive information. They can also lead to brand and reputation damage, tremendous impacts on customers and partners.
For this reason, data protection management has become one of the most critical issues today. Platforms that can provide good cloud security services are extremely valuable for any organization and individuals who care about data safety and cloud network security.
The SaaS (Security as a service) business model implies that companies employ third-party consultants and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) to track their entire digital infrastructure’s overall security. No matter the reasons, organizations tend to externalize these data protection services to save money and overcome talent and skill gaps instead of building them internally.
X10 Networks, a security service provider, leverages the prizewinning AlienVault Unified Security Management™ (USM™) platform to provide cloud data protection, asset detection, data vulnerability evaluation, detection of intrusion, and other benefits.
The AlienVault Open Threat Exchange™ teamwork with AlienVault Labs to integrate real-time threat intelligence into the AlienVault USM platform. This teamwork allows you to quickly identify threats that could negatively affect your network and take appropriate action within moments of deployment.
Companies and businesses using the Internet can benefit from digital forensics in cybersecurity, as any organization that collects data from Internet users employs people who fight and investigate cybercrimes.
Social media platforms, banks, and federal agencies (including the FBI, military, local and state law enforcement agencies) use digital forensics in cybersecurity. They need to be very vigilant about the data they collect and secure, so they need to test their systems frequently and search for and eliminate vulnerabilities.
The X10 Network MSSP’s SaaS offer includes:
- Threat Hunting
- Compliance Monitoring
- Evaluation and Remediation of Data Vulnerability
- Detection of Threat and Malware
- Monitoring and Archiving
- Log Correlation
- Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)
Network Access Control
Wired ∙ Wireless ∙ Firewall
X10 Networks has been developing and deploying Network Access Solutions for more than 15 years. We can help you identify and safely on-board end-user devices ensuring compliance and corporate connectivity policies ranging from wireless user portal authentication to IoT, OT, or SCADA. X10 Networks also became the first partner in Western Canada to introduce Network Access Control solutions such as Avenda (Aruba ClearPass), and Bradford Networks (FortinetFortiNAC).
Specializing in complex Network Access Control solutions, our team has extensive experience when it comes to deploying NAC in Education, Municipalities, Healthcare, Small/Medium Business Enterprises, and so on. Leverage unique features such as sponsor approval, credential delivery, or usage policies thru email or text. It’s relatively easy to implement secure guest access and create a customized web portal using your organization.
Make sure you secure those Ethernet ports behind IP desk phones and in conference rooms or common areas.
Internet of things (IOT)
It is difficult for businesses to identify and apply the right security compliance and priorities to IoT devices since IoT devices use common stacks to connect to networks and initiate identification. The new products enable customers to apply network segments and controls for critical devices at the edge of the network.
Enterprises can enforce the quality of service policies and group devices based on the security and compliance requirements of each specific device with more sophisticated algorithms. The access points and switches in combination with Edge security control solutions help identify and enforce device connectivity controls.
X10 Networks makes strategic investments with technology partners and continuously invests in internal training and adoption of new technology and practices. Our teams successfully service customers across various regions and industry verticals.
