Vulnerability Assessments

Malcomprise can pinpoint the weaknesses in your IT and network security systems, and provide expert recommendations on how to fix them. Our security consultants use a complete range of testing and assessment methods – ensuring they uncover the most hidden flaws. We provide a clear and comprehensive security assessment that lays out the results and establishes both short-term actions and long-term strategies.

Our methods include the following:

  • Automated testing
  • Simulated attacks
  • Architecture and process reviews
  • Network and IT configuration audits
  • Physical security evaluation
  • Internal threat evaluation

Our comprehensive approach covers IT and network infrastructure, applications and wireless access. We can also establish appropriate security levels for the different types of data you manage.

Security Architecture Development

To be effective, security needs to be designed directly into networks and IT systems. It must be aligned with business objectives, and designed to withstand the most sustained attacks.

Malcomprise has a deep knowledge of both security and IT architecture, and can integrate comprehensive security capabilities into new systems – as well as retrofitting existing ones. We can also identify and correct flaws in existing security implementations.

System Hardening

Malcomprise can harden your existing IT systems, minimizing the likelihood of security breaches.  Our security experts will eliminate a wide range of security issues using a number of approaches, including the following:

  • Applying the latest patches to your system software to eliminate known vulnerabilities
  • Reconfigure user permissions to give limited, appropriate access
  • Eliminating unused accounts
  • Close down unnecessary open firewall ports
  • Configuring stringent password policies
  • Shutting down unneeded services that could pose a security risk

Firewall Design and Deployment

Your firewall is your first line of defense from external attacks by hackers, cybercriminals and industrial spies. Selecting your firewall is probably the single most important security decision you can make.

Malcomprise has the in-depth knowledge needed to select the best firewall for your needs, along with an extensive track record of successful firewall deployments. We will configure your firewall to deliver maximum protection and provide high-performance connectivity for VPNs, remote access, intranets and extranets.

Intrusion Detection and Prevention

To be truly prepared for attacks, you need to be able to detect them and respond quickly before they do damage. Intrusion detection systems (IDS) and intrusion prevention systems (IPS) provide sophisticated safeguards against malicious attacks, protecting critical systems and information assets.

Malcomprise has deployed IDS and IPS solutions in some of the most sensitive IT networks. Our security experts are able to identify key points of attack, and deliver efficient solutions that provide maximum protection.

Identity Management

A user's identity is like a key. It unlocks some doors, while others remain closed. If a user's identity is compromised – or they are given the key to too many doors – this creates a significant security threat. However, managing identity is a major challenge, especially if users need access to diverse and geographically dispersed systems. Inadequate identity management not only creates risk, it also creates major regulatory and industry compliance issues.

Malcomprise provides a comprehensive range of identity management services that deliver unified control of user identities. We assist our clients with product selection, enterprise-wide deployment planning, installation, configuration, and ongoing support. Our solutions improve security and compliance, and enable seamless user access across the organization.

Logging and Compliance

Logs give visibility of malicious attacks, as well providing compliance data for regulatory requirements such as Sarbanes-Oxley (SOX) and HIPAA. Malcomprise provides an extensive range of log management services, including the following:

  • Product evaluation and selection
  • Development of log retention strategies
  • Installation, configuration and maintenance of logging platforms.
