Patch Management;
By monitoring and performing any necessary patches and updates, Layered Tech keeps your systems up to date and secure. As part of our managed security IT services, all patches undergo a rigorous patch management lifecycle, where Layered Tech first tests the patch and assesses its appropriateness – before applying it to your systems. Doing so affords you peace of mind knowing that all current updates and security measures have been applied, and your environment is safe from any exploits or outside attacks.

Web Application Firewall (WAF):
Protection against malicious activity is critical. If you use Layered Tech's Layer 4: Compliance Management services, you can add on Layered Tech's Web Application Firewall (WAF) to help keep your website and/or Web applications out of harm's way. Our WAF complies with PCI DSS requirement 6.6, an important mandate from the payment card industry to protect Web applications exposed to the public Internet. Layered Tech's WAF achieves this by providing content-based firewall protection for your website against potential intrusions, such as SQL injection, buffer overflow attacks, malware attacks and cross-site scripting vulnerabilities.
In addition to helping meet the various regulatory and industry security mandates, implementing a WAF is essential if your website has already been previously defaced, if you have SQL injection issues, or if you have high-value content that must be protected against compromise.

Network Intrusion Detection System (NIDS):
Layered Tech can provide added security with our network intrusion detection system (NIDS). This service, which detects and inspects suspicious or malicious activity, is a standard component of Layered Tech's suite of managed security services, Layer 4: Compliance Management.

Server hardening:
Server hardening is the first line of defense against a possible intrusion. open source trains the system administrators on the best practices to be followed to maintain secure servers and methods to update security patches and monitor security logs, to identify possible security breaches and track defaulters.

Information security policies:
Security policies are the primary building blocks for every successful information security effort. At open source, we conduct risk analyses to locate likely threats and the security requirements; gather the required information using well-defined checklists and procedures, and then develop a security policy based on the existing standards, and corresponding baseline standards, guidelines, and procedures for implementing the security policy.

Penetration testing:
Penetration testing is used to analyze the vulnerabilities of a system / network remotely. The open source team performs penetration testing in accordance with the open source security testing methodology manual (OSSTMM) and the open web application security project (OWASP).

Business continuity planning / disaster recovery planning:
Business continuity / disaster recovery plan (BCP / DRP) is a comprehensive statement of consistent actions to be taken before, during and after a disaster. The open source team conducts a business impact analysis and a risk analysis to identify the areas that would suffer the greatest financial and operational loss in the event of a range of possible disasters, including natural, technical and human threats.

Security audit:
A security audit is conducted to assess the overall security of the customer's network, using well-defined procedures and checklists. This helps identify security loopholes in design, implementation and practices in the network.

Application audit:
An application audit involves reviewing and assessing issues of functionality vis-à-vis business requirements, input / output / processing controls, auditability, internal controls built-in at the application software level, database level, server and client applications, implementation of separation of duties, password management, programming standards and quality assurance, software development methodology, change and version control management, and back-up and restore procedures.

Our Service Benefits:

Cost: The cost of a managed security service is typically less than hiring in-house, full-time security experts.

Staffing: A shortage of qualified information security personnel puts tremendous pressure on IT departments to recruit, train, compensate, and retain critical staff. The cost of in-house network security specialists can be prohibitive. When outsourcing, the costs to hire, train, and retain highly skilled staff becomes an MSSP responsibility. If a client organization can outsource repetitive security monitoring and protection functions, then they can then focus internal resources on more critical business initiatives.

Skills: An in-house staff member who only deals with security on a part-time basis or only sees a limited number of security incidents is probably not as competent as someone who is doing the same work full-time, seeing security impacts across several different clients, and crafting security solutions with broader applicability.
