With multiple components that make up the robust security solution Ontech Managed Security, today we’re looking at another aspect of this cyber security solution.
A Great Option When You Need to Maintain Compliance
At a high level, the network security component of Ontech Managed Security is an excellent solution when you need to maintain compliance thanks to the daily reports and threat analysis outlines for three regulatory standards: HIPAA, PCI and NIST-800.
What Does It Do?
Ontech Managed Security monitors infrastructure such as hardware, switches, firewall, etc. It looks to see if anything has changed on your network and if so, sets off a series of alerts. This aspect can be used in conjunction with endpoint security.
Acting as your “gatekeeper”, Ontech Managed Security monitors incoming traffic and determines whether it is legitimate or not. In addition, it can also monitor denial of service attacks and protect you from useless traffic that would otherwise suck up your connection.
Protection from Denial of Service Attacks
In a denial of service attack, a substantial amount of information packets with no substance are sent at your firewall. Since there are so many information packets, your firewall can’t process them and this results in too much traffic which slows down your network. This can even prevent you from getting emails in an out of your network.
Integration of SIEM Technology
Ontech Managed Security also includes Security and Incident Event Management, otherwise known as SIEM technology. If a user from another country creates an admin account on your network, Ontech Managed Security would monitor and block this event.
In addition, the Security Operations Center (SOC) monitors this traffic and in an urgent situation, your IT technician could get an alert or phone call at 2am. The SOC works 24/7 to monitor event traffic in and out of your network.
