Managed Security Services
In computing, network security services that have been outsourced to a service provider are managed security services. Protect your sensitive data with 24/7 controlled security services, monitor your environment for intrusions and respond to security incidents. We suggest reviewing your cybersecurity posture first before using Controlled Security Services to make sure you know where you are, what’s missing, and where you want to go. Our Managed Services includes Identification of the below mentioned services.
#01 Managed Identity
In a more effective and affordable service model, a virtual chief information security officer, or vCISO, is a specialist who works regularly with companies to provide all the necessary data security support one would expect from an in-house senior executive. Gain day-to-day cyber security assistance and guidance from a dedicated vCISO, along with long-term security policy, vision, design and implementation of programme and policies. In order to recognize vulnerabilities and optimize their safety status over the long term, vCISOs perform a thorough evaluation of the safety posture of an organization. A vCISO, serving either as a long-standing resource for your team or as an interim CISO, will step in to develop security standards, enforce controls, and respond quickly to incidents, constantly refining your approach along with industry best practices and regulations to address the evolving threat environment.

A vulnerability evaluation is the mechanism by which vulnerabilities in computer systems , applications and network infrastructures are described, detected, categorised and prioritised. Vulnerability assessments also provide the company with the requisite information, understanding and risk context for the evaluation to identify and respond to the threats to its environment.
To identify threats and the risks they pose, a vulnerability assessment process is intended. Usually, these include the use of automated testing methods, such as network security scanners, the findings of which are reported in a study on vulnerability assessment.
In order to search for exploitable vulnerabilities, a penetration test, also known as a pen test, is a simulated cyber assault on your computer system. Penetration testing is widely used in the sense of web application protection to supplement a web application firewall ( WAF).
Pen testing can include attempts to break any number of application systems to expose vulnerabilities, such as unsanitized inputs that are vulnerable to code injection attacks, (e.g. application protocol interfaces (APIs), frontend / backend servers).
To fine-tune the WAF protection policies and patch found vulnerabilities, insights provided by the penetration test can be used.
In many sectors today, security enforcement is a legal issue for companies. Regulatory requirements such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, and ISO 27001 prescribe guidelines for data protection and the enhancement of enterprise information security management. Enterprises are better able to identify and achieve clear IT security objectives in demonstrating security enforcement, as well as mitigate the danger of network attacks by processes such as vulnerability management. Failure to achieve and sustain security compliance will result in financial and legal penalties in certain instances, such as with HIPAA.
Phishing is a cyber-attack usually carried out by email in which attackers pose as legitimate business contacts or organizations and attract recipients to provide confidential information such as passwords, bank account numbers , credit card data and other personally identifiable information that can be used to steal money, identities and data.
In order to determine their knowledge of threats and what to do with phishing emails when they receive them, phishing simulation is a software that companies may use to send practical phishing emails to employees. Typically, phishing simulation is used in coordination with phishing training that educates workers on how these attacks operate and how to prevent them. An efficient phishing simulation software will help to greatly improve the understanding of phishing threats by employees and increase the chance that when they receive a suspicious email, they will react correctly.
Security Awareness Training
Security awareness training is the method of providing the employees with comprehensive cybersecurity education about a range of information security threats and the policies and procedures of the company to resolve them. Security awareness training themes also reach into the digital world to include physical protection and how workers can keep themselves and loved ones healthy. Such training can take a number of forms, but is most commonly presented in a format that is online or computer-based.
Security awareness training is most effective when approached as a vital continuing activity in the sense of a broader security awareness programme rather than a one-time occurrence. In new, digitally dependent organizations, training and programming are central to developing a security culture.
#02 Managed Protection
A ‘managed firewall service’ is usually offered by accredited managed security service providers (MSSPs) as a solution for firewall operation, management, monitoring, and maintenance of firewall infrastructure. The MSSP can help set, manage, and adjust the rules of the firewall, track your network, and provide reviews, reports, and review.
The security of network traffic, including the flow of sensitive data, includes firewalls. They are important to comply with mandates such as PCI DSS, HIPAA, and GDPR. Using a managed firewall service, organizations that do not have the manpower resources available to maintain their firewall or other security devices can close data security holes and better avoid data breaches. Many of our auditors’ businesses work with internal IT workers to handle their firewalls, but many still opt to use a reputable managed firewall service to better concentrate on their core business goals.
“Web Security” is often referred to as cybersecurity. Basically, by identifying, preventing and responding to cyber-attacks, this means securing a website or web application. Websites and software apps are just as vulnerable as physical residences, shops, and government locations to security breaches. Unfortunately, cybercrime happens every day, and to protect websites and web applications from being hacked, great web protection measures are needed.
That’s exactly what web security does-it is a set of safety measures and protocols that can prevent unauthorized staff from hacking or entering your website or web application. For the defense of websites, web apps, and web services, this integral division of Information Security is crucial. To secure it, anything that is deployed over the Internet should have some sort of web protection.
The word for any process that protects email content and accounts from unauthorized access is email Security. To protect client accounts and information from hackers, email service providers have email protection measures in place. These steps include email servers with robust frameworks for password and access control; encrypted email messages (both in boxed and in transit); firewalls for web applications; and tools for spam filtering.
As a tool for spreading malware, spam, and phishing attacks, e-mail is popular with hackers. To trick recipients into disclosing personal information, they use misleading texts, resulting in identity theft. They tempt people to open attachments or click hyperlinks on the user’s computer that install malware (such as email viruses). For attackers who want to penetrate an enterprise network and hack valuable company data, email is often a key entry point.
A word sometimes used interchangeably with endpoint security is endpoint defense. Security solutions that solve endpoint security concerns, secure and protect endpoints against zero-day vulnerabilities, attacks and inadvertent data leakage resulting from human error are also used to characterize endpoint safety.
By way of anti-virus solutions alone, targeted attacks and advanced persistent threats cannot be avoided, rendering endpoint defense a critical component of full-spectrum security solutions capable of protecting data for the world’s leading businesses. Centrally controlled security solutions that secure endpoints such as servers, workstations, and mobile devices used to link to business networks are supported by Endpoint protection solutions.
Managed Cloud Firewall
A firewall is the fundamental building block of a sound protection strategy. The firewall monitors and manages traffic between two different networks; it serves as a buffer by using strict rules to ensure your devices are reached by only the network traffic you want. To limit access by IP, port, protocol, or the like, rules can be used. A firewall is a static, simple level of security, but, by dramatically restricting public access to some systems or applications, it is an easy way to handle a large number of possible security threats. It is a mandatory component of most requirements for compliance. But it is not necessary to provide a firewall. Your firewall isn’t really useful without proper guidelines, updates, and monitoring. A managed firewall is every firewall supported by Steadfast, so we can help manage your solution.

Data security is the data protection mechanism which includes the interaction between data and technology collection and distribution, the interpretation and presumption of privacy by the public and the political and legal underpinnings surrounding that data. It seeks to strike a balance between the privacy rights of individuals while also allowing the use of data for business purposes. Data security is also known as privacy of data or privacy of information.
Zero Trust Framework
Zero Trust is a security philosophy focused on the idea that before granting access, organizations do not immediately trust anything within or outside their perimeters and must instead check everything and anything attempting to connect to their networks. You recognize a “protect surface” in Zero Confidence. The protection surface consists of the most important and valuable data, properties, applications and services of the network, DAAS, for short. The surfaces of Protect are unique to each organization. Since it only includes what is most important to the activities of an entity, the defense surface is smaller orders of magnitude than the attack surface, and it is often recognized.
Remote access VPN
To create a safe connection between their network and the devices used by remote staff, businesses use remote access VPNs. When linked, workers can access the network infrastructure just as though their devices were physically plugged in at the workplace. A VPN for remote access works by building a virtual tunnel between the computer of an employee and the network of the organization. This tunnel goes through the public Internet, but to help keep it private and secure, the data sent back and forth through it is secured by encryption and security protocols.
A network access server (often called a NAS, but not to be confused with network-attached storage) and VPN client software are the two main components of this form of VPN.
Patch management is the mechanism that enables several patches (code changes) on current programme and software resources to be acquired, checked and installed on a device, allowing systems to keep updated on existing patches and deciding which patches are the right ones. Thus, handling patches becomes simple and fast.
As part of their internal efforts, Patch Management is often performed by software companies to address issues with the various versions of software programme and also to help evaluate current software programme and spot any possible lack of security features or other enhancements.
Software updates help address certain issues that occur and are only found after the initial release of the software. Security is often concerned with fixes, though there are some fixes that also affect the basic functionality of programme.
#03 Managed Detection
The process of handling log events created by all software applications and infrastructure on which they are running is log management. It includes the compilation, aggregation, parsing, storage, analysis, search, archiving, and disposal of logs, with the ultimate objective of using the data to troubleshoot and gain business insights, while also ensuring that applications and infrastructure are compliant and safe.
AI Machine Learning
Machine learning is an artificial intelligence (AI) technology that gives systems the ability to learn and develop from experience automatically without being programmed specifically. Machine learning focuses on the development of computer programme that can access and use data to learn on their own.
In order to search for trends in data and make informed choices in the future based on the examples we have, the learning process starts with observations or data, such as examples, direct experience, or guidance. The primary objective is to allow computers to learn automatically and change behavior accordingly without human involvement or assistance.
Intrusion Detection System (IDS)
An Intrusion Detection System (IDS) is a system that, when such activity is detected, monitors network traffic for unusual activity and issues warnings. It is a software programme that checks for malicious behavior or policy violations on a network or device. Any malicious undertaking or infringement is usually recorded either to an administrator or centrally collected using a system of security information and event management (SIEM). In order to distinguish malicious behavior from false alarms, a SIEM system incorporates outputs from several sources and uses warning filtering techniques.
SOC-as-a-service, also often referred to as SOC as a service, is a software or subscription-based service that manages and tracks internal IT teams’ logs, computers, clouds, networks and assets. The service offers the information and expertise required for businesses to combat cybersecurity threats.
Not all organizations can afford to employ in-house specialists in cybersecurity. Managing a software database is a large enough job in and of itself for the traditional IT department at a small or developing organization. Companies do not have to hire in-house cybersecurity experts with SOC-as-a-service to deal with today’s advanced cybersecurity threats, because a third-party team of experts working off-site offers the service remotely.
SOC-as-a-service allows companies to track 24/7 without having to spend a great deal of money in security hardware. Businesses frequently make do with hardware systems designed to make systems breach-proof, but they often struggle to fulfil the pledge. The truth is, in modern times, hackers are seeking new ways to penetrate the most solid, self-contained networks, and without the safety of today’s most sophisticated, state-of-the-art security services, any organization on a network could be at risk.
#04 Managed Response
Incident response is the technique used by a company to respond to a cyberattack and handle it. An assault or data breach can wreak havoc that could potentially impact consumers, time and money for intellectual property firms, and brand value. The goal of an incident response is to decrease this harm and recover as soon as possible. In order to learn from the attack and better plan for the future, investigation is also a main component. Since many businesses today experience a breach at some point in time, the safest way to protect your business is through a well-developed and repeatable incident response plan.
Containment, eradication, and recovery
When an occurrence or case has been validated, the proper steps are to be taken to manage the situation:
Containment: The measures needed to avoid the spread of the incident or occurrence across the network
Eradication: The behaviour needed to remove the hazard from the network or device completely
Recovery: The steps needed to get the network or device back to its previous functionality and usage
