A cloud access security broker (CASB) is cloud-based software or on-premises software or hardware placed between cloud service consumers and cloud service providers. It is a security policy enforcement point allowing businesses to address cloud risks and ensuring compliance with regulations. 

Benefits of CASB include: 

  • Governing your business’ cloud usage with granular visibility and control. 
  • Securing sensitive data across all cloud services in your environment.
  • Protecting against cloud-based threats such as malware and ransomware.

Data Encryption is a security method used to protect the confidentiality of data. It involves encoding information with a unique encryption key, which can only be accessed and decrypted by a user with the correct key. It deters malicious and unauthorised parties from accessing your company data. 

Benefits of Data Encryption include: 

  • Peace of mind that your data is protected in a variety of states. 
  • Enables you to send and receive data securely.
  • Assists with data protection compliance efforts. 

Data loss prevention (DLP) technologies are designed to stop sensitive information from leaving your organisation. DLP products operate on a defined set of rules, looking for sensitive information being sent in electronic communications and detecting anomalous or abnormal transfers. 

Benefits of DLP include:

  • Minimising insider threats and preventing the exposure of confidential data (whether intentional or not).
  • Protect data in motion, data in use and data at rest. 
  • More visibility into where data is being sent and who is accessing it. 

EDR, MDR and XDR are three endpoint security technologies built to provide greater visibility, threat detection and response across enterprise endpoints. 

Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) solutions combine real-time continuous monitoring and collection of endpoint data with rules-based automated response and analysis. 

Extended Detection and Response (XDR) can be seen as an evolution of EDR, taking a more proactive, holistic approach. XDR broadens the scope of detection beyond endpoints and analyses the data across your endpoints, networks, servers, cloud and more. 

Managed Detection and Response (MDR) is a managed service around endpoint security. It combines detection and response technologies with human expertise to provide you with enhanced continuous monitoring, incident investigation and response, plus more. 

Secure Email Gateways (SEG) are devices or software used to monitor emails being sent and received. They are key to preventing unwanted and malicious content such as spam, phishing, malware and fraudulent emails. SEG also helps to prevent sensitive data from leaving the organisation, and can automatically encrypt emails containing sensitive information. 

Benefits of SEG include:

  • Protection from email-borne threats such as  phishing and business email compromise. 
  • Provides admins with control over all email policies and quarantines. 
  • Helps meet compliance needs by securing sensitive data.

Identity and access management (IAM) and identity governance and administration (IGA) are similar terms but different in nature. IGA refers to the processes organisations undertake to monitor user identities and security permissions. IAM solutions are a large component of IGA, as they help define digital identities and access rights within an organisation’s network.

Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) and Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) are both core elements of network infrastructure.

IDS solutions analyse and monitor network traffic for indications that attackers are attempting to infiltrate or steal data from the network. They compare your current network activity to a known threat database in order to detect security policy violations, malware, port scanners and more.

IPS systems work in a similar manner, however they sit in the same area as a firewall and proactively deny network traffic based on a security profile. 

Benefits of IDS/IPS include:

  • Quick and effective detection of known anomalous behaviour. 
  • Helps catch and respond to intruders in real time. 
  • Maintain the privacy of your users. 

Mobile device management (MDM) is a software that allows you to control, secure and enforce security policies on smartphones, tablets and other endpoints. For example, if a mobile device is lost or stolen, MDM can remotely lock and wipe all data from said device. This ensures your company’s data and devices remain secure. 

Benefits of MDM include:

  • Helps support BYOD behaviour in a secure manner. 
  • Remote management of users’ devices, allowing administrators to take full control when necessary. 
  • Ensures that all staff comply with your organisation’s device policy. 

Mobile security solutions help protect against malicious apps, ransomware, adware,  dangerous websites, unsafe Wi-Fi networks, privacy leaks, unwanted access to your company devices and more. 

Benefits of mobile security include: 

  • Proactive protection against emerging mobile threats. 
  • Alerts you when your operating system contain vulnerabilities for swift actioning. 
  • Wi-Fi and web protection, helping to safeguard you from malicious websites and networks. 

Multi-factor authentication (MFA), also referred to as two-factor authentication (2FA), is a security technology that requires multiple methods of authentication to verify a user’s identity. It combines something you know, with something you have and something you are. For example, MFA may require a password in conjunction with a SMS-token. 

Benefits of MFA:

  • Minimises the risks associated with poor password hygiene. 
  • Helps you comply with the Essential Eight.
  • Increases security with third-parties and within your organisation. 

Network Access Control (NAC) technologies enable organisations to implement policies for controlling access to corporate infrastructure via user-oriented and IoT devices. NAC can deny network access to non-compliant devices, place in them quarantined areas or give them restricted access to computing resources. 

Benefits of NAC include:

  • Increased and centralised visibility across your network.
  • Enhanced network performance.
  • Reducing cyber threats, especially those relating to IoT and BYOD.


Perimeter firewalls refer to security applications that defend the boundary between a private and a public network. They prevent unwanted and suspicious data from entering the network by scanning and examining each data packet. 

Benefits of perimeter firewalls include:

  • Monitor incoming and outgoing traffic, with detection and protection against malicious content. 
  • Prevents keyloggers from stealing PINs and passwords. 
  • Detect and prevent trojan attacks,

A Security Operations Centre (SOC) is a centralised facility that houses an information security team. This team is responsible for monitoring and analysing enterprise systems, defending against breaches and proactively identifying and mitigating security risks.

Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) is the foundational technology of a SOC. SIEM software collects log and event data from your applications, devices, network, systems etc. to draw analysis and provide a holistic view of your IT security.

Threat Hunting uses the same infrastructure as the SOC but takes it further again. After the SIEM has missed a relevant event or a SOC operator has dismissed an event as benign, threat hunting looks for patterns of behaviours that may indicate a compromise.

SSL/TLS certificates are digital certificates that allow for encrypted and secure communications to take place. The primary use for SSL/TLS is for securing communication between a client and as server, safeguarding any sensitive data being sent between the two systems. 

SSL/TLS uses encryption algorithms to scramble the data in transit, which ultimately prevents cyber criminals from reading and modifying the information transferred.

Benefits of SSL/TLS Certificates include: 

  • Protection of your and your customers’ confidential data. 
  • Helps you satisfy PCI/DSS and other regulatory requirements. 
  • Affirms your business identity and helps maintain customer trust. 

A Secure Sockets Layer Virtual Private Network (SSL VPN) enables remote users to access an organisation’s web applications, network, client-server apps, and more, without the need for specialised client software. They allow for safe communication across all device traffic, including public and private networks.

For thick applications, we recommend Security Application Delivery. These appliances run the application on-premise in virtual machines. Sensitive data never leaves the corporate network and the application remains quick and secure. Attackers on a compromised device can’t tunnel back into the corporate network.

Virtualisation security (also security virtualisation) refers to security solutions that are software based and designed to work within a virtualised IT environment. This improves physical security by reducing the number of hardware in the environment, and differs from traditional network security which is static and runs on firewalls, routers and switches. 

Web Application Firewalls (WAF) help protect web applications by filtering and monitoring HTTP traffic between the web application and the Internet. 

Benefits of WAFs include:

  • Protecting against cross-site forgery, cross site scripting (XSS), file inclusion, SQL injection (SQLi) and more. 
  • Blocks Distributed Denial-of-Service (DDoS)

Web Filtering technology stops users from viewing certain URLs or websites by preventing their browsers from loading pages from these sites. It is an important first line of defence against web-based attacks and helps monitor user web activity. 

Benefits of web filtering include:

  • Minimise the risk of malware infections. 
  • Protection against exploit kits.
  • Restricted access to social media leads to increased staff productivity.

A secure web gateway (SWG) is a cyberbarrier or checkpoint that keeps unauthorised traffic from entering an organisation’s network. It only allows users to access approved, secure websites—all others are blocked.

Benefits of SWGs include:

  • Blocks access to high-risk and malicious websites and applications. 
  • Enforces compliance policies and regulations. 
  • Protects against malware infections. 

Information Security Awareness Training (ISAT) is designed to help uplift employee security awareness around common and emerging cyber threats. It assists them with understanding their security responsibilities, including how to identify and defend against attacks.

Benefits of ISAT include:

  • Gauging your employees’ level of awareness for targeted uplift. 
  • Ingraining cybersecurity into business culture. 
  • Protecting your data and reducing overall risk.
