Cyber Security


As cyber threats become more widespread and sophisticated, organizations can no longer ignore the network, data, and financial risks they present. Recent high profile cyber-attacks (Sony, OPM, Target, Anthem BCBS, Home Depot etc.) show that a cyber breach can have a devastating impact on an organization, including erosion of customer/member trust, reputation, and direct financial losses. Cyber security is now an essential component of any organization’s technology operations.

Managed Security Services

The security of IT systems is a critical component in IT operational management. As a Managed Technology Partner for your organization, OSIbeyond provides network and data security oversight using a multi-step process. First, OSIbeyond implements simple but highly effective preventative measures through the Enhanced Security Services (ESS). These are designed to deliver a holistic approach by adding multiple layers of security to an organization’s technology systems. Second, OSIbeyond’s ongoing Vulnerability Management Services (VMS) proactively identify potential risks, remediate vulnerabilities, and assist with regulatory compliance.

Enhanced Security Services

Enhanced Security Services (ESS) consist of proactive technology solutions designed to protect your organization from malicious attacks, data compromises, and vulnerability exploits. Enhanced Security Services are holistic in their approach. They are effective because they add multiple layers of security to your organization’s technology systems. ESS is not just about detecting viruses or network attacks, it involves a holistic approach that includes securing email communications, malware protection, hardened user authentication, and staff training so they can identify duplicitous phishing emails. Enhanced Security Services are offered as a subscription service on a per-user basis.

The Enhanced Security Services deploy multiple tools to proactively respond to and prevent attacks and breaches in three key areas:

1. Email Security

Email Security with Targeted Threat Protection uses multiple, sophisticated detection engines and a diverse set of threat intelligence sources to protect incoming email from malware, spam, phishing, and targeted attacks. Email security is delivered as a 100% cloud-based service.

Spam and Multi-Layered Malware Protection

Many secure email gateways will allow infected mail onto the network, slowing performance and frustrating employees. Email Security offers 100% anti-virus and 99% anti-spam service levels — removing threats in the cloud before they reach your network.

Targeted Threat Protection

91% of attacks by sophisticated cybercriminals start through email. Email is both an organization's most important communication platform and the application that is most susceptible to attack. Most gateway solutions stop spam and viruses, but fail to address one of the biggest threats facing your company. With Targeted Threat Protection, you can shield your employees and network from whaling, phishing and spear-phishing attacks using email. Organizations and its employees are targets of increasingly sophisticated attacks designed to steal money, credentials, customer data, and other valuable intellectual property. Targeted Threat Protection defends organizations from spear-phishing, ransomware, impersonation and other targeted attacks.

2. Two Factor Authentication

Two-factor authentication (2FA) strengthens access security by requiring two methods or factors to verify your identity. These factors can include something you know - like a username and password, plus something you have - like a smartphone app to approve authentication requests. 2FA protects against phishing, social engineering and password brute-force attacks, and secures your logins against attacks that exploit weak or stolen login credentials.

Passwords are increasingly easy to compromise as they are often stolen from third party websites, easily guessed because people tend to use the same password variluations, or hacked becaused of weak password complexity, and you might not even know that a malevolent intruder is accessing your account. Two-factor authentication adds a second layer of security, keeping your account secure even if your password is compromised. With a Push notification, you'll be alerted right away (on your phone) if someone is trying to log in as you. This second factor of authentication is separate and independent from your username and password.

3. Security Awareness Training

More than ever, untrained users/employees are the weak link in your network security. Security Awareness Training includes phishing security tests to show you the percentage of end-users that are Phish-prone. These highly effective, frequent, random Phishing Security Tests provide several remedial options in case an employee falls for a simulated phishing attack, including instant remedial online training.

Security Awareness Training also includes over 500 items of security awareness training content such as interactive modules, videos, games, posters and newsletters. You will gain access to web-based, on-demand, engaging training that addresses the needs of your organization. Security Awareness Training specializes in making sure employees understand the mechanisms of spam, phishing, spear phishing, malware and social engineering; and are able to apply this knowledge in their day-to-day job.

Vulnerability Management Services

The modern network is no longer comprised simply of servers and desktops; remote workers, cloud, virtualization, and mobile devices mean your risk exposure is changing every minute. OSIbeyond’s Vulnerability Management Services (VMS) is a highly available, scalable, and efficient way to collect your vulnerability data, turn it into answers, and minimize your network and data risk. This ongoing subscription service automatically collects data from endpoints, monitors, and analyzes your network for new and existing risks. If a new vulnerability is identified, a notification is automatically sent to the OSIbeyond helpdesk so that the risk can be remediated. Each vulnerability is assigned a Real Risk Score that provides an actionable, 1-1000 scale based on the likeliness of an attacker exploiting the vulnerability in a real attack. Backed up by threat feeds and business context, to help prioritize vulnerabilities the way attackers would.
OSIbeyond’s Vulnerability Management Services include:

Response at the Moment of Impact

Live Monitoring and Adaptive Security provides fresh data from endpoints, granular risk scores, and knowledge of what attackers look for to ensure a proactive response.

Live Monitoring of exposure

Gathers fresh data from endpoints and automatically assesses for change and exposures, reducing remediation to a matter of minutes with a live view into vulnerabilities as they happen.

Lock down shifting endpoints

Live Monitoring of endpoint devices keep track of the vulnerability status of remote workers and new devices. An initial snapshot of your environment is taken upon installation, changes to any endpoint are then reported back.

Implement secure configurations

Assess your systems based on industry best practices such as CIS (Center for Internet Security) and other leading standards, to implement secure configurations across your entire organization.

Adapt to your changing environment

Adaptive Security automatically detects and scans new devices as they enter your network and identifies which devices have critical vulnerabilities as soon as they’re released publicly.

Simplify compliance and report with ease

Show auditors how your environment has changed over time to fully demonstrate compliance with PCI DSS, NERC CIP, FISMA (USGCB/FDCC), HIPAA/ HITECH, Top 20 CSC, DISA STIGS, and CIS standards for risk, vulnerability, and configuration management.

Monthly Reporting

Monthly Reports communicate the overall vulnerability management program to a wide range of audiences, from IT & compliance professionals to the C-Suite.
