Security of information systems and data is not only unavoidable, but also one of the most important aspects of IT infrastructure implementation and maintenance. IT Sistemi cover all the areas of IT security – from the basic antivirus and firewall solutions, to the SIEM (Security Information and Events Management) systems, network and database vulnerability assessment solutions, monitoring and controlling web-access, e-mail security etc.
There are more and more standards concerned in raising information security and companys security in general. One of them is PCI DSS (Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard) defined by the Payment Card Industry Security Standards Council (Visa, American Express, MasterCard…). The standard was created to help prevent credit card fraud through increased data control. The standard applies to all organizations which hold, process, or exchange cardholder information from any card branded with the logo of one of the card brands.
Solutions for Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) are becoming a crucial part of an organization’s security infrastructure. SIEM technology projects are typically oriented to several major use cases: compliance reporting, threat management, incident response, and forensics. Improving reporting and compliance (such as PCI DSS, ISO 27001, and other standards) and security incident identification are the main reasons for solution deployment.
Change Management and Change Tracking are the fundamentals of conducting an effective IT security policy, and maintaining an acceptable level of IT security, in every business organization. Such activities can present a big logistical problem in heterogenous IT environments of most organizations. The only effective solution is to implement a system which can secure data integrity in key IT systems, which can provide a real-time monitoring of key data and systems, and correlate them to baseline values and established policies.
E-mail security solution is a must have for an organization of any size. With more than 95% of e-mail messages today being spam, filtering spam and virus messages becomes not only convenient but also required for normal business operation.
Secure web gateway solutions filter unwanted software/malware from user-initiated Web/Internet traffic and enforce corporate and regulatory compliance. Such solutions, as a minimum, include URL filtering, malicious-code detection and filtering, and applications support for most popular Web-based applications, such as instant messaging, native or integrated data leak prevention.
According to the Ponemon Institute, 59% of people who lost their job admitted to taking confidential company information with them either on DVD or using USB drives. The proliferation of consumer devices such as iPods, USB devices, Smart Phones and more, has dramatically increased the risk of intentional and unintentional data leaks and other malicious activity.
