Data Security and Protection

Modern enterprise applications have transformed and improved the ways companies do business by being able to cater for a wider audience but have also left data stores more exposed to security breaches. Most companies, irrespective of function or geography, are subject to repeated attacks by hackers seeking to acquire their valuable data.

Moreover the types and amount of information organizations now collect and store is skyrocketing and often it is unknown where critical information resides, who can access it, when they can access it or what happens once it’s accessed. IBM® Security Guardium offers a comprehensive data security platform that provides a full range of capabilities that can help organizations to:

• Prevent data breaches, insider risk and fraud, and unauthorized changes to (or destruction of) sensitive data

• 100% visibility into all database transactions – across all platforms and protocols – including those of DBAs, developers and outsourced personnel.

• Centralized aggregation and normalization of audit data from across your database infrastructure for enterprise-wide compliance auditing and reporting, correlation, and forensics.

• A secure, tamper-proof audit trail that supports the separation of duties (SOD) required by auditors

Identity and Access Management

Many organizations face access management chaos. They have multiple sets of users – employees, contractors, Business Partners and consumers – trying to access critical IT resources through multiple devices, including smartphones, tablets and notebooks.

IBM® Security identity and access management solutions help protect and monitor user access in multi-perimeter environments with context-based access control, security policy enforcement and business-driven identity governance. By integrating proven technologies with a layer of security intelligence, organizations can ensure that the right users have access to the right information in a timely manner. The solution centralizes and automates the management of users, providing industry-leading capabilities for assigning and enforcing user access rights, monitoring user activity and for detecting and escalating activities that are non-compliant with an organization’s security policy.

Privilege Identity and Access Management

Within virtually every organization today, there is a set of privileged users—IT administrators, systems managers and others—who have elevated access to sensitive IT resources. Their privileged identities have extraordinary abilities that may be used to exploit an organization’s data, applications and endpoints ranging from inadvertent mistakes to intentional malfeasance: accessing data from insecure locations, deliberately exposing or downloading data, or even exposing their credentials to outside hackers.

Organizations need to be able to maintain tight controls over who they grant privileged identity status to—and what they are allowed to do with those privileges. IBM Security Privileged Identity Manager built on the underlying capabilities of IBM Security Identity Manager and IBM Security Access Manager for Enterprise Single Sign-On is a single product that protects, automates and tracks individuals' use of privileged account access. The solution enables companies to centrally manage and audit a pool of privileged user identities, which can be checked in and checked out by authorized people when needed.

Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)

With the increasing number of Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and sensitive data leaks, adopting a Security Information Event Management (SIEM) solution is no longer just a compliance measure but a vital step to detect security deviations and react promptly to suspicious activities.

Qradar SIEM from IBM® offers round the clock security monitoring with a common platform for all log management, vulnerability management and risk prioritization, incident detection, incident forensics and impact analysis. Built upon three pillars of intelligence, integration, and automation, the IBM Security QRadar solution addresses the need for greater security intelligence, visibility into the network, behavioral anomaly detection and compliance to policy mandates.

Our team of IBM-certified experts is available to help clients plan, design, build and optimize their SIEM deployment, leveraging proven expertise to provide in-depth analysis and tuning to meet policy and trends, with strategic recommendations to strengthen your security posture.

Cybercrime and Advanced Web Fraud

The Internet offers massive advantages, conveniences and opportunities. But with such access, various security risks are unearthed. Financial institutions worldwide are taking this into consideration and deploying exhaustive steps to protect the information transmitted and processed when using online banking platforms. Despite these safeguards, financial institutions cannot directly protect customers from themselves and the way in which they use their devices which can expose them to potential risks.

ActivEdge Technologies is a service provider for industry leading web fraud solution, IBM® Security Trusteer® products that help detect and prevent the full range of attack vectors responsible for the majority of online, mobile and cross-channel fraud. IBM Security Trusteer products deliver a holistic, integrated cybercrime fraud prevention platform that helps to detect active threats, analyze risk factors and flag high-risk transactions, deliver improved user experiences that significantly reduces disruption to customers who are performing legitimate transactions and utilizes a global intelligence service from of millions of endpoints to proactively provide dynamic protection layers

Brand Abuse and Email Security

Email continues to be the primary way cyber criminals infiltrate an enterprise. 90% of cyberattacks and data breaches involve spear phishing. 100% of spear phishing attacks involve identity deception. Existing solutions are failing to protect organizations from targeted email attacks, spear phishing and business email compromise.

Blocking email based on content does not work for, you need to know the ‘true’ identity of an email’s sender. ActivEdge provides businesses with a comprehensive approach to identifying targeted email attacks and blocking spear phishing attacks for your cloud or on-premise email solutions.

Some of the email security solutions which we provide include Agari which works with hosted or on-premises email infrastructure, including Gmail, Microsoft Office 365, and industry-leading secure email gateways to detect and block direct domain spoofed mail and related targeted email attacks.

Phishlabs is our flagship anti-phishing solution whose approach involves detecting, analysing and proactively dismantling the systems (phishing sites) and illicit services cybercriminals depend upon to carry out phishing attacks.

End Point Management

Each device that connects to the your network must be adequately secured to prevent breaches and the loss of sensitive data.

With the continuous adoption of mobile devices into work environments, the task of securing various both employee and organization owned endpoints can be daunting for any size business to say the least. You will need the smartest endpoint protection platform on the planet to increase operational efficiency, maximize data security and deliver on your digital transformation goals. IBM MaaS360 with Watson™ delivers cognitive insights, contextual analytics, and cloud-sourced benchmarking capabilities to make sense of the mobile minutiae you encounter daily – while protecting your endpoints, users, apps, docs, and their data from one platform.

IBM® BigFix® is an endpoint security and management platform that provides real-time visibility and control across endpoints wherever they are connected. This is used to addresses a major challenge faced by many organizations — how to gain full visibility into the constantly changing endpoint landscape while bridging the gap between threat detection and remediation.
