Threat actors are becoming increasingly sophisticated and the consequences of unauthorised access or malicious attack more disruptive. If a crucial part of an organisation’s infrastructure is compromised it could halt operations, freeze assets and exploit customer and company data.
87% of compromises took minutes or less. Placing security best practice at the core of infrastructure to focus on risk mitigation will lower vector attack consequences by identifying and eliminating vulnerabilities.
Infrastructure security is a process for ensuring your network is configured for maximum security by managing Active Directory, monitoring network activity and pen testing
Even in the age of cloud computing, many businesses retain all or some of their IT assets on premises. Whether you have a hybrid cloud system or keep everything entirely privately, you will need to ensure the security of your networks, servers and databases.
Any IT estate big enough to use Active Directory needs infrastructure security. Ensuring these systems are secure requires expert knowledge in network architecture and vulnerability management and tools such as penetration testing to identify weaknesses.
Active Directory is a target for attackers because of its role in authorising users, access and applications. Misconfigurations in AD can leave your organisation open to attack because of failure to change default security settings, inappropriate granting of admin rights and other roles, unpatched vulnerabilities in the AD servers and failure to monitor AD activity.
Failures in infrastructure security can have catastrophic consequences including data theft, data loss including ransomware, insider attacks, account hijacking, and DDoS attacks.
Infrastructure security is about ensuring your network is configured for maximum security by managing Active Directory, monitoring network activity and pen testing.
This minimises vulnerabilities while also acting as a mitigating factor in post-incident investigations, from a contractual, legal and regulatory point of view.
Bramfitt experts will work with your IT, security, data management and other teams to create an infrastructure security strategy, help to configure services and recommend processes for establishing a culture of security awareness within your organisation.
We will also engage in penetration testing to build a detailed picture of your organisation’s security posture, in terms of technical capabilities and human resources.
