Bolster Your Security Defences

Cyber Essentials Review Toolkit (CERT)

vSOC CERT streamlines the Cyber Essentials certification process, year after year.

Often, the certification process is seen as a point-in-time commitment, leading to pressure on internal resources and issues at recertification. When delivered within one comprehensive service, you’ll have access to a wide range of technologies, including the vSOC Connect Console, progression workshops and ongoing support throughout the year. By utilising our CERT, not only is Cyber Essentials simplified but also you’ll have continuous control and visibility all year round.

  • A certification body for both standards: Cyber Essentials and Cyber Essentials Plus
  • External verification from a highly accredited security team
  • With vSOC CERT, check if you’re still compliant when new revisions are released

Firewall Management Data Sheet

Vulnerability Management

At a time when IT teams and resources are stretched, you can trust powerful automation and expertise to help reduce both internal strain and the window of exposure to critical vulnerabilities.

The process of vulnerability management identifies, prioritises and manages your organisation’s vulnerabilities and misconfigurations, which it does by scanning the network perimeter and all devices.

Due to the sophistication of attacks in an evolving threat landscape, we utilise the largest vulnerability database and give you continuous visibility through our vSOC Connect Console.

This offers a sleek single pane of glass in which you have the option to drill down on individual prioritised vulnerabilities or devices and view remediation actions.

Managed Detection & Response (MDR)

With vSOC Alert, you benefit from outsourced cyber security operations with the threat-hunting expertise of our SOC team.

Breach detection rates are significantly improved, while also reducing the dwell time. Have confidence that critical services are performing and available as expected.

We use industry leading technologies and methodologies to provide effective detection and response to threats. Unified data collection and analytics from diverse information sources are used to detect indicators of compromise. Reports for compliance are quickly and easily generated.

Security Awareness Training

Did you know that 95% of breaches occur due to human error? Having an effective security awareness training programme is vital in keeping your organisation protected.

Your bespoke programme will take into account all areas of security from basic security hygiene, physical reconnaissance such as tailgating and the latest sophisticated attack trends. With the use of various testing tools, our team will be able to review and analyse the success of the training, making the necessary changes to your programme.

  • Utilize the world’s largest training library including interactive training modules, videos, newsletters and quizzes
  • If you have any internal training documents, we can create customisable training modules that are easy to distribute to the necessary parties
  • View your overall risk score, find out who are the riskiest users and have extensive campaign analysis at your fingertips through the vSOC Connect Console

A Diligent Security Team

Have confidence that your security is in the right hands with the combined forces of our expertise, resources and knowledge.

What Is Cyber Essentials?

Cyber Essentials is a government-backed scheme that outlines the five core technical controls an organisation must have to ensure an effective level of security. All organisations, no matter the size or sector, can benefit from this standard as it provides a vast range of advantages.

The National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) assures organisations that, with the Cyber Essentials standard, the most common cyber attacks can be prevented, providing confidence to you and your organisation’s stakeholders.

What Is Cyber Essentials Plus?

With Cyber Essentials Plus, reduce the risk of cyber attack and show your stakeholders that you take cyber security seriously.

Unlike with the basic Cyber Essentials certification, a certification body must perform an audit to check that you have successfully put in place the core technical controls. The specifications needing to be met can raise many unknown questions within your organisation’s current security health. However, by opting for the audited Cyber Essentials Plus standard, you can feel confident that a cyber-security-focused company can support you throughout the process.

What is IASME Cyber Assurance

In the past, IASME Cyber Assurance was known as IASME Governance, but it was recently relaunched to give it a new focus. Like Cyber Essentials, there are self-assessment and audited versions of the standard. These are called Level 1 Verified Assessment and Level 2 Audited, respectively.

The standard has been designed to be an affordable, flexible and comprehensive standard to verify that organisations have in place the vital measures needed for cyber security, privacy and data protection.
