Controlling your Cloud environments

The EDGENETIC Managed Cloud Protect service deploys next-generation cloud compliance and security monitoring suite provided by Check Point CloudGuard to provide advanced visibility, oversight, and control for your cloud environments. This is integrated into the EDGENETIC global SOC and Aperture cyber operations platform to provide you with 24/7/365 alerting and visibility.

EDGENETIC is an award-winning cybersecurity organisation with unparalleled capability in delivering managed security services. Through our global Security Operations Centres (SOCs) we provide round the clock cloud security monitoring services that secure our clients and detect and respond to sophisticated cyber-threats, providing assurance that your organisation is protected.

What Is Managed Cloud Protect?

EDGENETIC’s Managed Cloud Protect service is a cloud monitoring service that provides 100% visibility into your cloud estate. The service can be configured to protect the cloud environment and prevent misconfigurations – the primary cause of data loss. Taking control of the native cloud tooling enables a coherent and proactive security posture to be applied across the entirety of a clients cloud estate – visible and configurable from a single interface. This minimises the attack surface, protects against vulnerabilities, and identifies theft and data loss.

The service uses the industry-leading Check Point CloudGuard product suite. The solution comprises network security, application and workload protection, posture management, and cloud intelligence. The core product, CloudGuard Posture Management, assesses and visualises security posture, identifies misconfigurations, and can automatically enforce policies and protect against internal and external threats.

It also comes with Cloud Intelligence Essentials, a security monitoring system that utilises a combination of signature detection, built-in rules, and threat intelligence feeds to create a baseline of account activity. Unauthorised or malicious activity across cloud environments, including serverless applications, is detected by AI and anomaly detection algorithms. This provides real-time detection and prevention.

Automatic remediation is also possible using CloudBot technology. This can be used to deal with any type of network alert, audit issue, or threat, resolving dangerous misconfigurations and putting the environment back into compliance.

The Cloud Protect service will significantly reduce the likelihood of a misconfiguration leading to a data breach, as well as the time to detect and respond to an incident. These metrics (known as Mean Time to Detect or MTTD and Mean Time to Respond or MTTR) are key indicators of an effective detect and respond capability.

Frequently Asked Questions about Data Privacy Security

What is an incident response policy?

An Incident response plan or policy is a process you create before you experience a cyberattack. This is so that your team has a procedure to follow when you do experience a data breach. EDGENETIC follows the CREST Cybersecurity Incident Response process which is broken down into 3 phases: preparation, response, and follow up. Having a breach plan gives you the confidence to quickly nullify any threat to your data privacy security.

Why is data privacy security important?

Although it has always been important, the implications and need for higher security are coming into play now that technology is indispensable to everyday life. Using apps, browsing websites, and shopping online are all examples of how your data will be stored and managed online. For organisations today, the threat of cyber theft is a pertinent one. Having comprehensive data privacy plans in place can reduce and mitigate the risks of such events.
