Advanced Threat Defense (ATD) solutions are designed to protect a company’s endpoints against sophisticated threats. Businesses need a multi-layered and adaptable security approach that is highly-driven through the intelligence gathered. IronEdge recommends the following:

 

Employee Security Awareness Training
Our Security Awareness Training Program provides you with a comprehensive new-school approach that integrates baseline testing using mock attacks, engaging interactive web-based training, and continuous assessment through simulated phishing, vishing and smishing attacks to build a more resilient and secure organization. Includes compliance training for GDPR, PCI, FERC/NERC, HIPAA and other major audit related topics.

 

NextGen Antivirus (NGAV)
Next-Generation Antivirus takes traditional antivirus software to a new, advanced level of endpoint security protection. It goes beyond known file-based malware signatures and heuristics because it’s a system-centric, cloud-based approach. It uses predictive analytics driven by machine learning and artificial intelligence, combined with threat intelligence.

 

Zero Trust Policy-Driven Security
Zero trust means changing the position from blocking only known threats to blocking anything from running that is not permitted. When trust is given, granular policy controls are enforced to stop vulnerable applications from carrying out malicious behavior. By implementing the zero trust framework, all software will be denied unless it’s been vetted and approved.

 

Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)
EDR tools are built to conduct threat hunting by sending endpoint telemetry to a Security Operation Center (SOC) to be analyzed and escalated when suspicious activity is detected. The EDR functionality is normally built into some of the latest NextGen AntiVirus applications.

 

Internet Content Filtering
IronEdge provides predictive and secure content management for end users which can be configured globally or down to a specific device. Our product uses DNS layer security filtering which utilizes the Internet’s existing infrastructure. Leveraging the up-to-the-minute analysis of 2% of all the world’s internet activity, our product stays ahead of attacks such as phishing links, malware and ransomware. Robust reporting and analysis help admins make informed decisions to ward off threats.

 

Microsoft 365 and SharePoint Backups
Microsoft recommends you use a third-party tool to backup your data from their cloud systems, including Microsoft Office 365 and SharePoint. 3rd party backups are critical to every organization’s data recovery and security strategy.

 

3rd Party Application Patching
IronEdge Group can install and configure patches and set mandatory versioning for most major 3rd party applications and plug-ins. Programs such as Adobe and Java are responsible for a majority of software vulnerabilities on user systems. We provide a customized and reportable solution to cover over 45 separate applications including: Chrome, iTunes, Java, Adobe, FileZilla, Dropbox and TeamViewer.

 

Dark Web Domain Monitoring
IronEdge provides Dark Web monitoring and this feature will detect when credentials for client’s users are discovered. This allows users to get notifications about exposed credentials and authorizes those credentials to be changed to keep the account secure.
