Network Architecture Security Review

Review the security posture of your network architecture and assets. Identify any security weaknesses in design, implementation, and assess the controls that protect your assets from a compromise.

Your corporate IT provides connectivity, services, and supports the growing business demands of the organisation for basic connectivity, and a variety of services. Designing your IT infrastructure with security in mind, according to industry best practices and hardening the organisation’s network assets reduces the extent of vulnerabilities in your platforms, systems, and assets. This in turn provides a foundation for continuous IT delivery and enables the provision of advanced business services .

We will review your organisation’s IT architecture and core infrastructure components according to vendors’ security best practices, security frameworks, and Cynance’s domain expertise. This allows us to discover potential deficiencies which might lead to a cyber breach. Our team of cyber security consultants in London will conduct a time limited assessment focusing on:

Architecture Design Review
Assessing your network topology and architecture design from a security perspective, reviewing applied security layers, stemming from the perimeter defense down to host and information protection. Reviewing security of data at rest and in transit.

External Assessment
Discover and asses any externally visible assets, such as web application servers, mail servers, load balancers, IDS/ IPS, firewalls, routers, DNS etc.

Internal Assessment
Assess internal systems and IT assets, such as data bases, DLP , switches, shared services, end points security (Windows/ Linux), etc.

  • We will learn about your organisation and its production networks. Together, we will define the right scope, and approach for the network security review, considering risks and budget.
  • We will want to receive your network diagrams, and any other relevant supporting documentation, and may request a remote or local access to your network assets that are in scope of our assessment.
  • Our team of network security architects will conduct interviews with your IT and security team members, and will execute automated and manual validation procedures against the components and services in scope.
  • We will provide you with a detailed security findings report, and recommendations for the remediation of the discovered vulnerabilities present in your architecture design and corresponding assets.
  • We will be happy to support you in any point of your journey of bridging the gaps in your network security.

This process is conducted by experienced network security engineers and architects, penetration testers, working closely with your IT, security teams and business owners.

  • Annually/ bi-annually/ Quarterly, in accordance with your organisation’s information security policy.
  • Whenever you want to gain better understanding regarding the network security posture of your company.
  • Prior to introducing a major architectural change, network enlargement, by adding a significant amount of users, or a migration with a third party.
  • In preparation for a cyber security mergers and acquisitions (M&A) audit.

Cloud Security

Stay on top of emerging threats introduced by cloud integration practices. Formulate a security strategy for your cloud driven services and products, enabling industry expertise to leverage your cloud security posture.

As your company increase the amount of services that are delivered over the cloud, your network perimeter is diluted with more SaaS solutions and integrations. In parallel, your company’s attack surface expends as well, presenting new cyber breach risks. It is therefore essential to develop your cloud infrastructure with security in mind, creating a comprehensive strategy that reaches across people, processes and technology.

We help you to protect your companys’ cloud infrastructure, assets, applications and data, involving your public, private, or hybrid cloud implementations.
