Logging (Audit Trails) continue to be the single most valuable tool for IT Security professionals in combatting security threats. Despite the fact that most IT systems, no matter the size or complexity, have the capability of logging every form of activity, many companies fail to realise the importance of monitoring this information. Through a number of audits and information security assessments that we have carried out over the years, we have noted that IT administrators continue to be very complacent about log monitoring. This not only gets them in trouble in terms of compliance but also puts the company at risk. The company may have already been attacked and not even know it. Monitoring large volumes of logs is not fun and certainly not easy.
Luckily a number of tools are on the market and Kyte are proud to have partnered with the best is the industry. Through these tools, companies automate several tasks that would previously have consumed a lot of time and made the entire process almost impossible for IT personnel. Not only will these tools enable you to monitor much more data in less time, but they will provide you with the right information at exactly the right time and in the format that you require it. Dashboards are customized and allow you to have visibility not only of past events but also real time health and security status. These tools also integrate seamlessly with many products out there in the market thereby enabling a certain granularity in reporting which would not be possible with conventional tools.
Aside from having the right log monitoring tools in place, we understand that companies may not have the resources, expertise or even the time to carry out this important activity. Through our partners, we are in a position to provide the services of a fully managed Security Operations Centre, thereby outsourcing the security monitoring function to us. This service can be tailored to your company’s set up, resources that we should dedicate and technology to adopt. The service manages the security of all your network devices, servers, and Cloud Infrastructure. With a managed SOC in place, you don’t have to worry about who is stopping the bad guys at night or maybe during holidays. Speak to us for more information.
