Concerned Employees Could Compromise Your Security?
Employee Acts - Malicious or Accidental - Account for Most Data Breaches. Akibia Will Help You Secure Your Infrastructure.
Lock Down Your Infrastructure With a Total Security Solution
Akibia's approach is to take a holistic view of a company's network security environment, to gain a thorough understanding of their unique needs, and to design and implement a total security solution. Although firewalls today provide perimeter security, and the first line of defense against potential threats, they represent only one key component within a network security architecture.
Akibia leverages partnerships with best-of-breed security technology providers to deliver a full portfolio of security solutions designed to mitigate the risks and threats facing businesses today. While Akibia's approach to designing a security solution is a multi-layered one, it is also modular, with all modules interacting with each other. Akibia’s portfolio of security infrastructure solutions include:
Firewall & VPN Solutions
- Intrusion Prevention
- Identity Management
- Secure Access
- Content Management
- Endpoint Security
- Security Management
Akibia's Best-of-Breed Solutions for Stronger Security
Firewall & VPN Solutions
As the cornerstone of every company's network security architecture, the enterprise firewall serves as the primary control mechanism between internal corporate assets and the Internet. By effectively filtering traffic at the edge of the network with an optimal firewall solution, significant cost savings result by preempting the need to repair infected systems.
Whether a client is considering implementing a new firewall solution, or upgrading, expanding or optimizing their existing firewall infrastructure, Akibia will help evaluate and implement the best firewall and VPN solution to meet their unique security requirements, based on best-in-breed technologies from leading solution providers such as Check Point, Juniper Networks and McAfee. In addition to firewall design and implementation services, Akibia also offers firewall technical support as well as a managed firewall service and training.
Businesses today need to be able to detect unusual network behavior within their perimeter defense system. Partnering with technology providers such as Check Point, Tipping Point and McAfee, Akibia works with our clients to help them select, design and implement the optimal Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) that will effectively detect anomalies within their network traffic, including malicious threats, and alert their appropriate IT staff to these changes.
Akibia’s expert design and implementation skills ensure that our clients’ IPS is properly configured to distinguish between genuine attacks and false alarms – ensuring effective protection against internal threats.
Protecting against unauthorized network access, establishing appropriate user access controls, and defending against password breaches, while providing a unified log-on experience, are all challenges for today’s IT organization - as users wrestle with the proliferation of log-ins for systems, applications, portals and wireless clients.
In order to protect against unauthorized user access and given that simple user names and passwords can easily be compromised, Akibia recommends strong authentication and advanced access controls as integral components to our clients’ overall security strategy. Akibia partners with leading solution providers such as RSA Security, Microsoft and Infoblox to deliver best-in-breed identity management solutions to our clients. Akibia’s integrated identity management solutions incorporate authentication, access control and advanced management features – allowing clients to effectively identify users, manage user accounts and control network access and privileges.
Many businesses face the challenge of effectively managing secure employee and partner remote access, ensuring that all remote users have access to the necessary corporate applications and data they need to do their jobs, without compromising data and network integrity. An optimally designed Virtual Private Network (VPN), leveraging encryption, authentication and clientless technologies, provides secure, cost-effective access to network applications.
Leveraging the latest technology from RSA Security, Akibia helps clients plan, design and implement the right remote access solution to fit their environment and business needs - taking into consideration the number of remote users, expected application usage, roaming access needs and the level of security required.
With the impact of spam on bandwidth and employee productivity and the need to protect against malware, companies today must address the issues of web and email content management as well as anti-malware and email security. Controlling employee web behavior and effectively logging and managing Instant Messaging traffic are just some of the challenges facing many of Akibia's clients.
Partnering with Blue Coat Systems, Akibia offers a complete content management solution that provides full visibility and control over inappropriate Web surfing, email content as well as protection against viruses and worms – to deliver the most effective Web content management, Anti-malware and Email management solutions in the industry. Leveraging years of security and content management experience, Akibia works with our clients to assess, implement, integrate, optimize and support their Blue Coat environment.
Endpoint security can be a challenge as organizations wrestle with an ever-increasing list of protections needed on the endpoint. While network and gateway solutions play a significant role in reducing risks, the sophistication and volume of threats that target the endpoint require equally sophisticated and robust solutions. The agents associated with multiple protection technologies such as firewalls, VPNs, anti-virus, encryption, and network access control can require significant endpoint resources as well as management platforms.
Akibia helps clients implement optimally designed endpoint security strategies that leverage multiple security technologies to provide secure, cost-effective access to their corporate infrastructure. Leveraging Check Point technologies, Akibia designs and implements endpoint security solutions that enable better and easier management of security by combining firewall, anti-virus, encryption and network access control in a single solution.
Security Event Management
With heightened concerns around compliance and businesses looking for ways to reduce the administrative burden and costs associated with manually monitoring the event logs of their security systems, there is a greater need for comprehensive security event management.
As part of Akibia's total security solution offering, we work with customers to design and implement a security event and information management (SIEM) solution, leveraging RSA Security’s enVision solution, which enables the collection and correlation of security events and the translation of that data into actionable, meaningful business intelligence.
