Cyber-attacks continue to grow at rapid rates due to malicious attacks and human error, and with cybersecurity now firmly a broad issue, organisations are under pressure to ensure their IT environment is underpinned by a robust cybersecurity solution to safeguard their business, people and customers are protected, is critical.
With an increasingly mobile workforce, the ongoing shift towards cloud and a rapidly evolving technology environment, ensuring your organisation has an intelligent and secure IT solution that provides a high level of governance, meets compliance, reduces risk, and empowers your people to thrive and deliver excellent service for your customers – is not easy to do.
As an ISO27001 certified company aera’s security solutions provide our customers with 24/7/365 proactive monitoring via our internally owned & managed SOC (Security Operations Centre), threat protection, and business continuity of their IT environment, and giving them peace of mind.
Aera offers only “best of breed”vendor solutions at your network edge. This allows aera to offer our customers an enterprise-grade network security stack that secures from the very edge of your network all the way down to the endpoints, which in these days of mobile and remote workforces – are often where the controls need to be strongest.
Aera makes sure the right (and approved) applications are securely running in your IT environment which isn’t as easy as it seems. We help our customers select and implement the right application security tool(s) that enable audit mode deployment, and profile set up across different user groups that when enabled will block and/or alert to unwanted programs.
“Prevention is better than cure” when applied inmost scenarios and with EndPoints even more so. Modern endpoint security platforms need to be capable of doing more than just recognising an attack – they need to analyse behaviour and react accordingly, as well as detecting when potentially valid applications are hijacked by malware, or when a user decides to behave inappropriately.
Through aera’s SOC, we fully monitor and manage endpoint security services direct from industry-leading vendors, such as SentinelOne, CrowdStrike, BitDefender and Barracuda; including XDR and EDR, providing your organisation and people peace of mind, that someone is always watching the front and the back door.
Keeping a diligent watch over an organisation’s entire IT eco system 24x7x365 is critical, yet many find it difficult to achieve due to insufficient tools and systems, and resources. At aera, we don’t believe in outsourcing security as we need to have eyes on your network all day, every day with our internally owned and managed SOC(Security Operations Centre). Our SOC proactively monitors your IT environment, capturing and resolving issues before they can cause disruption to your business, people, and customers.
Aera can quickly and easily tell you if and where the holes are to get in to your network. And every business should check this. Aera will assess and provide a complete comprehensive visibility into your network including all networked hosts, devices, services, operating systems, applications, configurations and vulnerabilities; High-performance scanning for high-profile vulnerabilities to deliver faster results for urgent and critical vulnerabilities.
Aera also has tailored solutions around Vulnerability assessments being a managed service as there is no point checking for issues once a year; Our Managed Vulnerability Tools can provide continuous network scanning, combined with actionable, priority scoring which allows us to identify and address critical vulnerabilities efficiently and all year round.
Aera and our security experts provide Penetration testing; which is effectively an ethical attack, approved by you, on your business. We identify ways that hackers will get in, what damage they can cause and how much it may cost you. Most businesses should carry this out annually to“tick the box” that it is all ok and this also can help with Cyber Insurance policies.
In the event that you don’t want aera to“check our own homework” we also have security partners on our panel that we work with to provide an independent review on the aera network we manage for you.
