XBASE provides CrowdStrike for all of its managed services and security network monitoring clients. CrowdStrike is an industry leader in the field of endpoint protection providing advanced malware
detection and prevention for servers and workstations.
XBASE provides advanced IPS (Intrusion Protection) services designed to prevent attacks on your infrastructure. IPS Systems perform web content filtering and zero-day malware blocking services by inspecting your internet traffic and searching for known bad patterns. Many malware attacks are blocked by these services because they prevent the malware from getting started in your network.
Most exploits take advantage of unpatched systems, with the 2017 WannaCry cryptolocker variant being a great example. Microsoft and other vendors release updates and security patches whenever vulnerabilities are found in their products, but if you are not updating your systems in a timely manner, you are exposing your company to avoidable risks.
XBASE manages security patch deployments for all our managed services clients to ensure that systems are kept up to date and are not vulnerable to known exploits.
XBASE also runs regular scans on networks to identify and remediate systems that may be at risk, and we bring these to client’s attention via our monthly reporting and live dashboards as part of our network monitoring.
Whole Disk Encryption for Laptops
If you have users with laptops, then you may be at risk of data loss. Regardless of company policies in effect, mobile users tend to store work files on the local drives of their laptops for a variety of reasons. This may include confidential corporate or client information, financial or personal information. The theft or loss of a laptop may expose your company to liability.
XBASE can provide centrally managed, whole disk encryption
service. While you may not get your lost laptop back, you can be assured that no one has access to any of the data that may have been stored on the system.
The biggest threats from malware
and phishing attacks lives in your inbox. Users are lured into clicking on attachments or hyperlinks, or to responding to fabricated requests by cyber criminals. XBASE’s premium mail security program dramatically reduces the risk of a bad email in your inbox by replacing attachments with sanitized copies guaranteed to be free of malware or scripts, quarantining questionable senders and replacing dangerous hyperlinks with secure tested links. By proactively keeping the bad email out of your users’ inboxes, we eliminate email as the source for ransomware and other dangerous malware.
XBASE email protection is available for both on premises Exchange and Office 365 (O365) online Exchange.
Two Factor Authentication
Another aspect of our managed cybersecurity services in Toronto is the fact that XBASE provides fully managed two factor authentication services designed to protect users accessing mail, cloud applications, VPNs, and other services. When logging into a service, the user will supply their user ID, password AND will need to have access to their mobile phone to authenticate.
Two factor authentication is an effective way to prevent password sharing and brute force password attacks against your important systems.
