Even with a secure network and around-the-clock monitoring, your ICT system is still threatened by connected assets. External assets, such as laptops, tablets, phones, and memory sticks, introduce cyber risks to your network that must be closely monitored and mitigated. By completing an asset inventory, you are able to identify those risks and better protect your system.
Hackers look for vulnerabilities in your network, many of which are found through connected assets. From your trusted employees to your valued customers, people are connecting their devices to your network all the time. With each connection, a new vulnerability is introduced to your network.
Connected devices can allow hackers to take down your firewall, leak viruses, and steal data. While this isn’t always the case, it is common enough to raise concern for businesses and organisations with complex ICT systems.
We will complete an initial visual inspection to determine the best plan of action based on your ICT network, organisational needs, and potential vulnerabilities. Then, we will install our expertly built software to either a dedicated or virtual server to sniff out each asset that could potentially introduce risks to your system.
Common assets include:
With this initial scan, we will not only discover all assets on your network but also learn where your firewall has been breached or where unauthorised software has been installed.
Depending on your needs, we can then create a plan of action to mitigate the discovered risks with our Vulnerability Management Security Consultancy Service.
The delivery process should be a non-intrusive process and should not affect your business flow. Gaia will work in the background, ensuring that all installations are handled appropriately and in a timely manner. A half-day training session can be scheduled at the end of the installation to ensure that your new Asset Inventory system is up and running. We aim to provide this extra layer of support to your organisation as quickly and seamlessly as possible.
After a thorough inventory, we will provide a comprehensive report that lists all of the current assets, hardware, and software that are attached to your network. This report will give you a clear picture of the cyber security risks that your company has, the associated costs, and recommended solutions.
After we install and configure the security software, we will train your staff on its optimum use and show you how to configure the appropriate reports for your daily usage. For a comprehensive service that monitors all assets and risks, as well as mitigates them, then consider our Managed Security Service Provision (MSSP).
A comprehensive asset inventory allows you to examine all connected devices to your network and pinpoint any vulnerabilities associated with these devices. If needed, you can then create a plan to mitigate any risks that are introduced through the assets and protect yourself against future threats.
As part of the Gaia Defence in Depth strategy, we dedicate an entire layer of security to protecting your network against connected devices.
We offer the following services:
