Today most companies dispose of a security infrastructure which fends off attacks from the internet. But what happens if the attacks come from within the ranks?
Host and network based Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS) identify attacks on computer systems and networks.
Intrusion Prevention Systems (IPS) do not only serve to identify attacks but also offer functions capable of preventing detected attacks.
Secure internet access, clean emails and security for mobile users
Networks and Computers are constantly threatened through malware like viruses and trojan horses. One wrong click can have disastrous implications. IT systems get infected and susceptible to attacks from the outside; Company data gets into the wrong hands; whole networks are disabled. Additionally to the loss of data and the time required to restore functionality, these failures can cause lasting damage to the company's reputation.
Systematically securing all web services
The security demands of IT networks have constantly changed over the past years. Many companies employ 'best-of-breed' products to secure their IT infrastructures against internet attacks. A consolidated infrastructure does not only provide more security but also simplified means of system management.
A cache proxy as central internet gateway provides faster access; Additionally, SSL-Proxies can open and analyze encrypted data packets before sending them to the clients. In order to control the web traffic of all entry points, the web servers and clients also need to be equipped with antivirus tools. Meanwhile URL filters monitor the internet usage. Services like instant messaging and Skype have to be integrated into the security considerations as well.

Today's companies are aware of the numerous threats towards their IT infrastructure which come with the unauthorized access on internal file servers, documents, remote access systems or web portals.
This is why the supposedly safe user / password concept is often replaced by modern procedures like one time passwords (OTP) or certificates and smartcards.
