Take a layered approach to cyber security.Talk to one of our experts
Just as banks use multiple systems, alarms, ID Cards, CCTV, and vaults to protect their physical assets, taking a layered approach to security is an effective way of protecting your technology systems, users, and data.
Of course, there’s a little more to cyber-security than that, which is why our experienced teams of experts are on hand to work with you to navigate the complex challenge of keeping your organisation safe and secure.
Layers of Cyber Security
As more people work remotely, accessing services and data from a range of devices and locations, we need to be even smarter about how we manage security. With cyber threats evolving all the time, it’s crucial to stay one step ahead with a clear mitigation strategy, combined with the toolsets to detect and respond to any incident. That’s why we recommend a layered approach to cyber-security that covers your entire technology ecosystem end-to-end:
Simple but effective security and malware protection add an extra layer of protection. Knowing what devices are on your network is crucial, and combining this with detection and response capabilities enhance device security even further.
Actively monitoring and managing your infrastructure gives you the best opportunity to spot potential problems and address them quickly.
Vital to highly connected modern workplaces. A secure, well-maintained network with policy-based management lets your people do their work effectively from wherever they are.
The firewall is no longer your first line of protection. The perimeter has become wider now that organisations use more cloud services and increasing numbers of people access networks remotely. Is yours suitable for your organisation’s activities?
Ensure your service providers conform to the high standards you expect. For example, do they meet all the industry-standard accreditations? And are they capable of helping maintain and enhance your cyber-security?

Get the right protection for your organisation
We know that the level of protection and assurance your organisation needs depends on different factors – including what you do, how many people use your network, and the complexity of your systems. So, we take a deep dive into each of the layers outlined above and work with you to create an end-to-end cyber-security strategy that covers all your bases:
- Protect – Proactive prevention measures - from multi-factor authentication to protecting servers with next-generation anti-virus software.
- Identify – All the protection in the world won’t help if you can’t spot threats and vulnerabilities. After all, you don’t know what you don’t know. We can put in place measures to identify them quickly so that we can respond to them effectively.
- Respond – Once a threat is identified, a robust and rapid response is key to getting the best outcome. We’ll make sure you have both the tools and the resources to do just that.
- Safeguarding – Think of us as your cyber-security lifeguard. We can provide Safeguarding as a managed service, rolling out solutions, oversight and action across every layer of your security system, so your organisation is safe, secure and free to get on with what it does best.
And because there’s no one-size-fits-all solution, we work with a wide range of partners and solution providers to make sure we can tailor the perfect level of layered protection for your organisation and budget.
