Top three cybersecurity services against identity fraud

Issue 1 2022 Products

Identity fraud is a growing concern for businesses across the globe. According to the Association of Certified Fraud Examiners, there has been an “increase in levels of fraud since the start of the Covid-19 pandemic. This includes everything from credit card fraud and phishing to synthetic identity fraud, to defrauding a business.”

This means that the right cyber security processes and services used to make threats visible, react accordingly to threats and mitigate against future threats and vulnerabilities, are a necessity.

Businesses need to know how to keep their physical security, IT systems and data secure. This is where vulnerability management, MDR and endpoint protection (EPP) forms a protective barrier around your critical assets.

Managed detection and response to respond to threats: Managed detection and response (MDR) combines technology with human analysis so that the customer has access to security experts, researchers, engineers and analysts, responsible for monitoring networks, responding to alerts and analysing incidents.

The threat-hunting capability within this service is used to rapidly identify and limit the impact of security threats and risks with 24/7 threat monitoring, detection and targeted response, powered by log analytics, security orchestration, using automation and response tooling for investigation and response.

Vulnerability management to identify weak points: Vulnerability management is the continuous practice of identifying as well as classifying, prioritising, remediating and mitigating vulnerabilities in software.

The purpose of this service is to view and act on all vulnerabilities across all your digital platforms, including Internet, applications, systems, cloud and hardware. Identify your weak points, monitor your online identity, verify issues and remediate in rapid time.

Top benefits of vulnerability management are its ability to accurately prioritise and identify the main areas of concern, as well as identify and map your businesses risk-level to cyber threats.

Endpoint protection to defend against attacks: Managed endpoint protection (EPP) is an integrated security solution that uses antivirus, anti-malware, data encryption, firewalls, intrusion prevention and data loss prevention, to detect and prevent breaches, automate investigations and responses, monitor all communications, from low-level activity to malicious threats and identify and respond to all elements targeting your endpoints.
