Birmingham Cyber Security

Cybercrime is becoming an ever-increasing issue, affecting more and more businesses each year. No matter what size or type of business you are, your money and data is a target. With so many threats to be aware of such as, ransomware, phishing and key logging, it now makes business sense to outsource the online security of your company, leaving you to focus on your day to day business operations.

Here at Arden Group, we understand IT security is important and we take it seriously. We review your systems to ensure that every vulnerability is dealt with and every action is taken in order to protect your ICT systems, minimise data theft and safeguard your critical business data from internal and external threats.

XG Firewall

The XG Firewall brings a fresh new approach to the way you manage your firewall, respond to threats, and monitor what’s happening on your network. XG Firewall is optimised for today’s business, delivering all the protection and insights you need in a single, powerful appliance that’s easy to manage.

  • XG Firewall links Endpoints and Firewall to share telemetry and status
  • All firewall rules on one screen with snap-in user-based policies
  • Automatically identifies high-risk users and applications on the network
  • Identifies potential issues before they become real problems
  • The most flexible deployment options without compromise
  • Comprehensive centralised management and reporting by us made simple
Endpoint Protection

Endpoint blocks malware and infections by identifying and preventing the handful of techniques and behaviours used in almost every exploit. It doesn’t rely on signatures to catch malware, which means it catches zero-day threats without adversely affecting the performance of your device. So you get protection before those exploits even arrive.

  • Innovative protection including anti-malware, HIPS and malicious traffic detection
  • Web, application, device and data control for comprehensive policy enforcement
  • Web filtering enforced on the endpoint whether users are on or off the corporate network
  • Stops crypto-ransomware and automatically rolls any impacted files back
  • Exploit Prevention mitigates the methods attackers use to exploit software vulnerabilities
  • Forensic-level system cleanup
Intercept X - Ransomware Protection

Intercept X is an advanced next-generation endpoint detection and response platform offering signatureless exploit prevention, stopping malicious threats and exploits, including zero-day and ransomware. It delivers advanced remediation, removing malware that other vendors miss, and provides an end-to-end forensic level view of an attack in a straightforward way that doesn’t require a security expert to understand.

  • Stop advanced threats from infiltrating your systems
  • Shut down ransomware before it can take hostages
  • Signatureless exploit prevention guarantees modern protection
  • Comprehensible threat insight and root cause analysis
  • Automated remediation and malware removal
Synchronised Security

Smart hackers coordinate their attacks across an entire IT system touching the firewall, endpoints, servers, data, and more. Point products can stop individual elements of these threats, but they work in isolation. Synchronised Security is a best of breed security system that enables your defences to work together to stop advanced attacks. By synchronising protection of data, endpoints, and networks, security teams and infrastructures are now equipped to quickly and effectively react and respond to today’s threats.

  • Unparalleled Protection. Best-of-breed products packed with next-gen technology actively work together to detect and prevent advanced attacks like ransomware and botnets.
  • Automated Incident Response. Security information is shared and acted on automatically across the system, isolating infected endpoints before the threat can spread and slashing incident response time by 99.9%.
  • Real-time Insight and Control. See - and control - what's happening in real-time for simpler, better IT security management.
Server Protection

Protect the applications and data at the core of your organisation; whether that data is on physical servers or virtual servers in the cloud or on premises. Sophos Server Protection integrates anti-ransomware, application whitelisting, along with our advanced anti-malware and HIPS providing easy, centralised management of the security of all servers.

  •  Server Lockdown allows only trusted whitelisted applications and associated files to run
  •  CryptoGuard stops local and remote ransomware from encrypting critical business data
  •  Malicious Traffic Detection identifies communication to Command and Control servers
  •  Synchronised Security provides accelerated threat discovery, active source identification and automated remediation
  •  Application Control limits the applications that can execute, further reducing the attack surface
  •  Prevent compromise and data leakage by blocking removable media
SafeGuard Encryption

Sophos SafeGuard encrypts content as soon as it’s created, and with the encryption always on, you can enjoy seamless secure collaboration. Synchronised Encryption proactively protects your data by continuously validating the user, application, and security integrity of a device before allowing access to encrypted data.

  • Full Disk Encryption provides centrally-managed, full disk encryption using Windows BitLocker and Mac FileVault, taking advantage of the technology built into the operating systems
  • File Encryption encrypts files individually. They’ll remain encrypted even when transferred to a shared folder, removable USB stick, or the cloud.
  • It's business as usual. Open an encrypted file, edit it, or share it internally as you normally would any other file.
  • Share across platforms and devices. Encrypt a file on a Mac and open it in Windows.
  • It offers real-time protection. SafeGuard offers synchronised encryption by connecting to Endpoint Protection and Mobile Control.
Phish Threat

End users are the largest, most vulnerable target in most organisations. In real-world attacks, end users are relentlessly bombarded with spear-phishing and socially engineered schemes. A solid security awareness program is an integral part of any defense-in-depth strategy. Phish Threat educates and tests your end users through automated attack simulations, quality security awareness training, and actionable reporting metrics.

  • Easy message and file access via a secure web portal so recipients have a consistent experience from any device.
