What Is Cyber Security Monitoring?

Cyber security monitoring involves continuous monitoring of your organisation’s networks and systems to detect and help prevent any cyber-attacks. This is done via a range of tools such as intrusion detection systems, which will alert our team if malicious activity takes place.

This allows us to immediately react and respond to any suspicious activity, ensuring that the threat can be dealt with before any data or access has been leaked.

About Our Cyber Security Monitoring Services

We can monitor for all types of threats, including malware, phishing, insider threats, code injection attacks, and DNS tunnelling.

Network Security Monitoring

Network security monitoring focuses on maintaining and protecting the organisation’s network infrastructure using a range of sources. This is done through: 

  • Traffic analysis
  • Intrusion detection
  • Anomaly detection
  • Log analysis
  • Packet capture & analysis
  • Threat intelligence integration

Endpoint Security Monitoring

Endpoint security monitoring focuses on protecting and monitoring the individual devices, or endpoints, that have access to the network. This allows us to detect threats earlier in the kill chain. Endpoint security monitoring techniques include:

  • Malware detection and prevention
  • Behavioural analysis
  • Vulnerability management
  • File integrity monitoring
  • User activity monitoring
  • Endpoint detection and response
  • Endpoint compliance monitoring

Our Cyber Security Monitoring Tools

We use a wide range of cyber security monitoring tools to ensure that your networks and devices are not only protected, but we’ll be alerted to any attempts before they can gain access or take effect. Here’s the list of tools that we’ll use to monitor your systems.

  • Protection against known and zero- day malware
  • Protection against known and zero-day ransomware
  • Protection against known and zero-day exploits
  • Anti-phishing protection

Cyber Security Monitoring FAQs

Will Cyber Security Monitoring Disrupt My Business?

Cyber security monitoring will have no impact on your day-to-day business, apart from making it more secure! The monitoring tools that we use are specifically designed to monitor networks and endpoints with a minimal impact on their capacity so that they don’t slow down your own work.

How Do Cyber Security Monitors Work?

Our tools conduct a range of checks to cover all bases. Many of these work by conducting scans of the network, whereas others will analyse sources of data like traffic data to spot anomalies and analyse behaviour. 

Once something that our tools deem suspicious has been identified, it will immediately generate an alert for our experts so that we can react, analyse the threat, and take appropriate actions to mitigate them.

Can You Access My Data With Cyber Security Monitoring?

During our monitoring, we don’t have access to any of your spreadsheets or confidential data. We strictly monitor networks and devices, so there’s no reason for us to save, open, or view any of your internal files. 

This means that you can rest assured that all of your organisation’s data is safe and at no risk of a data breach.
