Cyber Threat Assessment

ASSESS IT THREATS WITH ANALYSIS OF DATA FLOWS

Need

Businesses work in increasingly complex network environments. On the one hand, they have to face continuous cyber attacks and defend themselves from data breach threats, on the other hand they are themselves undergoing a digital transformation, which leads to a growth of applications, devices and cloud environments, often distributed across multiple locations.

As a result, traditional defenses are no longer enough, and organizations that rely on outdated security controls may be more at risk than they realize.

WHAT’S THIS

The Cyber ​​Threat Assessment is a validation test that aims to assess the degree of security of the corporate network. It is a computer threat assessment program based on the analysis of data flows that travel from the internal company network to the outside via the Internet and vice versa.

HOW DOES IT WORK

The test involves positioning a probe for a maximum period of seven days in the perimeter area of ​​the corporate network, between the firewall and the internal network. The probe records information on activity to and from the Internet and / or to and from any remote locations, providing an in-depth look at the current state of the corporate IT network.

The probes do not affect daily operations and the detection of data flows is carried out in compliance with national and European legislation on privacy and data protection.

THE REPORT

At the end of the data collection Lan & Wan Solutions will deliver to the customer a report of the activities and information obtained. The report will indicate the key recommendations for improving corporate Cyber ​​Security.

The report is divided into three main sections:

VISIBILITY OF THE APPLICATION

This section of the report shows which applications are used on the customer’s network and how they are used, including whether they connect to internal or external resources. Knowing which applications communicate externally is important because it allows the company to:

 

  • Determine costs for WAN links;
  • Understanding where connections with direct Internet access could be optimized in case of MPLS;
  • Block “non-corporate” applications that steal useful bandwidth.

The report ranks applications based on their business importance and bandwidth usage based on categories such as VoIP, video, collaboration, social media, and more.

SECURITY AND THREAT PREVENTION

This section of the report examines the high-risk applications used within the corporate network (LAN) and gives indications on how traffic from branch offices and / or the Internet could be protected.

The information allows you to understand if you need to quickly update or increase the security infrastructure, showing the vulnerabilities of applications in the network and in devices at risk.

This highlights the risks that can accompany technologies such as SD-WAN, if security is not integrated with advanced devices such as Next Generation Firewalls.

BANDWIDTH USE AND PERFORMANCE

Here the report examines the traffic on the origin of the IP address, to determine the country of origin of specific requests. This helps IT teams identify botnets or remote access sessions that could indicate targeted attacks.

The report also illustrates bandwidth usage per hour and where it can be optimized for applications.

In this regard, Lan & Wan Solutions provides added value by suggesting advice on where WAN connections can be made more convenient without damaging the end user experience.
