Businesses require a number of information systems to be constantly available and supporting key core operations. Keeping heterogeneous systems up and running requires complex configuration and interaction between different technologies.
Due to operational restrictions, knowledge limitations and time constraints, security weaknesses may be introduced during the initial configuration phase or maintenance of systems and services. Over time there is an accumulation of oversights and technical mistakes which create an increasingly insecure environment. These security weaknesses present an opportunity for the malicious internal or external attacker to take advantage of and obtain unauthorized access to systems and data. This data may include financial information, customer confidential information, sensitive intellectual property and other proprietary information. These security incidents affect the confidentiality, integrity and availability of important data and significantly tarnish the reputation of the organisation, usually leading to loss of business.
Maintaining the number of security oversights under control is crucial to a secure operating environment. Senseon’s Information Security Auditing service ensures that any shortcomings present on systems are identified and rectified in a timely manner. Senseon’s information security auditors use a customized toolkit that facilitates this process by following established industry best practices. Technical recommendations are put forward aimed at ensuring that systems continue to operate in the most efficient and secure manner, significantly reducing the overall risk and safeguarding the business’ reputation.
Senseon’s security administrators can also assist the in-house teams or take the lead in implementing the necessary changes required to increase the security standard of most products, including server operating systems, database management systems and networking devices.
