Protect services will help you to identify security threats in your network, and understand their true impact on your organization. This knowledge will help you to build an effective security plan, and act before you become the victim of a security or privacy breach.
It is generally accepted that if someone has physical access to any computing resource, that system can inevitably be compromised; therefore, physical security has evolved as one of the most important security controls that can be applied across the network.DOWNLOAD THE DATA SHEET
In today’s world, the convergence of physical security and logical security solutions requires IT directors to manage far more information than ever before. The complexity of physical security, including operational management issues, makes it difficult to implement.
We will ensure that all controls have been validated, and can provide physical penetration testing scenarios to ensure employees are prepared for on-site social engineering threats.
DigitalDefence’s Physical Security Services has two immediate goals; ensures a safe working environment for all employees and that physical access controls, data centres, server rooms, environmental controls, and key facilities are secure.

Vulnerability management refers to the managed and auditable process of discovering and prioritizing IT asset Scanning networks and applications for vulnerabilities, generating reports and prioritizing the identified vulnerabilities in the context of your organization’s business priorities, mediating the priorities, usually by applying vendor-supplied patches and upgrades; and, confirming that the relevant mediation steps have been applied with no deleterious impacts on the patched system.DOWNLOAD THE DATA SHEET
The modern data network contains network devices, servers, web applications, databases and other assets that are located on-premise or in a cloud environment. These networks are continually engaged in updating infrastructure and systems, installing new and updated applications, and granting access to users – each one has the potential to introduce new vulnerabilities that could be exploited by attackers.
DigitalDefence provides assistance in developing your own vulnerability management program, or provide a managed service to address your network’s vulnerabilities.
Our vulnerability management solution includes but is not limited to, on-demand scanning, continuous scanning, and honeypot deployment.

DigitalDefence has pioneered a penetration testing approach based on “goal-directed testing” – we start by identifying your critical data, and then we focus testing on compromising that specific data. Unlike other testing methodologies that test everything, this cost-effective test highlights your most important risks. We also use a team-based approach with your own network staff. By determining if they can detect and respond to our attacks, we increase the effectiveness of our test results.DOWNLOAD THE DATA SHEET
Networks are under constant attack by individuals motivated by financial gain, political gain, intellectual challenge, or just mischief. Although many organizations test their networks on a semi-annual or annual basis as part of their regular security program, additional testing may be required.
DigitalDefence can deliver a variety of network and system tests designed to identify potential vulnerabilities before they are exploited by an attacker. The most accurate testing methodology is penetration testing, sometimes referred to as “ethical hacking”. Using commercial, open source, and proprietary tools, skilled testers will use the same techniques that a hacker would use to assess your network’s security.
By taking on the role of an outside hacker or a disgruntled employee, testers will: (1) demonstrate how the network was compromised, (2) prove that an actual compromise took place, and (3) provide real information on how to mediate against future attacks of this type.
Identifies vulnerabilities and allows you to focus on those that are the most critical to your specific network—provides proof of real threats to your data’s security—compelling evidence for management action!
Prevents financial loss—a security breach for even a small company can incur significant costs, including recovery costs, lost revenue, reduced employee productivity, and intangible costs, such as a damaged reputation
Knowledge professionals – the key to DigitalDefence’s success is our industry-certified experts who can demonstrate real risks to your network and provide you with practical strategies and options for mediation
Ensures regulatory compliance under frameworks like ISO 27001:2005, PCI DSS, HIPAA / HITECH; required for many insurance policies
Advanced Persistent Threats (APT) are human interactions or specialized applications that are designed to compromise a data network or system while remaining undetected. As such, they represent a significant threat to all organizations – particularly because they are designed to by-pass all existing security controls. It will communicate with a command and control server using overt communications; these should be detected by the network.DOWNLOAD THE DATA SHEET
The nature of the threat against networks has changed; attackers are now employing Advanced Persistent Threats, APTs – malicious software designed to use effective automated attacks to enter and move through a network, communicating only when necessary and using encrypted and difficult to detect communications channels. APTs attacks are specifically designed to access financial resources or confidential information during a long-term compromise that can last months, or even years.
DigitalDefence’s APT Testing service allows you to simulate a customized attack that is designed to by-pass traditional network controls. The test APT is benign in its actions and it does not employ any destruction actions against your production network; however, because it is based on a real threat, it acts like an APT in every other way.
APT mimics actual real-life APT software. The test APT will also attempt to exfiltrate large amounts of dummy data via the communications channel. This will allow the organization’s network perimeter defences, intrusion detection and prevention systems, data leak prevention mechanisms and endpoint security to be tested.
Take recurring penetration testing activities to the next level; prioritize the defensive steps required to protect your organization
Identify weaknesses that traditional control-based methodologies miss
Validate your incident response plan
Ensure compliance by demonstrating your commitment to protecting your employees and business against APTs
Business applications are becoming more complex; the required functionality is increasing as users and partners expect to be able to access information and complete online transactions.

Social engineers are the digital “con men” who will take advantage of the natural helpfulness of your employees in an attempt to gain access to sensitive data. For this reason, training in identifying and responding to social engineering is critical to the security and privacy of every organization.DOWNLOAD THE DATA SHEET
Even the best network and systems security will not prevent an attack directed at your employees. Malicious hackers can be extremely effective at coercing people to break their normal security procedures and divulge confidential information. In fact, it is estimated that 80% of all successful attacks include elements of social engineering.
Training in identifying and responding to social engineering is critical to the security and privacy of every organization. This training must be part of a comprehensive program that includes: employee education on-site social engineering assessment and training drills, and remote social engineering assessment and training drills.
Effective scenario-based training must use the same methodologies employed by a hostile attacker. Physical intrusion into the premises with remote social engineering attacks like spear phishing email and USB keys left on-site. “Obvious” attacks to distract from more stealthy attacks, and when compromise is achieved, employ stealth and other activities to remain on the network.
Allows the client to assess the security awareness of employees and identify procedural weaknesses that could be exploited by a social engineer
