Security

Securing enterprise networks and applications continues to be a complex issue. Access must be provided for employees and the public. A myriad of compliance measures dictate how and when data is accessed, and how access is tracked. Inside threats pose new and significant challenges. Cybercrime is a growth industry.

Addressing security issues can be more complex than the problem. Security is always a trade-off between ease of access and risk mitigation. Too little control and your assets are compromised. Too much control yields user frustration and loss of productivity.

Solutions

Juniper Networks

CTG has partnered with Juniper Networks to offer a variety of security solutions for the enterprise. These include:

  • Complete set of Unified Threat Management (UTM) security features—including stateful firewall, intrusion prevention, antivirus, anti-spyware, anti-adware, antiphishing,    anti-spam, and Web filtering—stops worms, spyware, trojans, malware, and other emerging attacks.
  • Centralized, policy-based management minimizes the chance of overlooking security holes by simplifying rollout and network-wide updates.
  • Virtualization technologies make it easy for administrators to divide the network into secure segments for additional protection.
  • Rapid-deployment features, including Auto Connect VPN and Dynamic VPN services, help minimize the administrative burden associated with widespread IPsec deployments.
  • For email and web security, CTG has partnered with two leading vendors, F5 Networks and Cisco IronPort.


F5

F5 solutions provide an advanced web application firewall along with comprehensive web application security. This combination significantly reduces the risk of damage to intellectual property, data, and web applications. With F5, you get a complete solution that eliminates the need for multiple appliances, lowers maintenance and management costs, and increases the confidentiality, availability, and integrity of your applications and processes. In addition, F5 has partnered with WhiteHat Security to provide vulnerability scanning with auto-remediation, saving developer time and eliminating vulnerabilites quickly.

IronPort

Utilizing technical breakthroughs like reputation systems and unique proxy appliance designs, IronPort has developed a host of email and web threat-specific technologies. This combination of proprietary security technology, industry-leading performance and threat correlation allows Cisco to deliver on the vision of total messaging and web security as quickly and efficiently as possible.

Cisco IronPort email security technologies provide industry-leading inbound email security and outbound email control. IronPort pioneered spam filtering through sender reputation analysis by creating SenderBase – a powerful threat tracking database that captures data from more than 100,000 organizations and measures more than 30 percent of the world’s messaging traffic. Reputation filtering, combined with Cisco IronPort Anti-Spam technology, results in 98-99 percent spam blocking with fewer than one in one million emails being misclassified. Cisco IronPort Virus Outbreak Filters provide zero-day virus protection and work in conjunction with integrated virus signatures. Corporate risk is also significantly reduced through embedded data loss prevention (DLP) functions, which can detect sensitive content, patterns or images in a message body or within attachments. To ensure message security to any destination, Cisco IronPort PXE Secure Messaging provides gateway to desktop encryption and authentication without needing special end-point agents or PKI infrastructure.

Cisco IronPort Web security technologies power the industry's first and only secure web gateway to combine traditional URL filtering, reputation filtering, malware filtering and data security on a single platform to address these risks. By combining innovative technologies, the Cisco IronPort S-Series helps organizations address the growing challenges of both securing and controlling web traffic. With threats becoming more complex and sophisticated, Cisco IronPort Web Security technologies enable the industry's most comprehensive web security solution, while also ensuring enterprise-class performance.
