Gain Insight Into Your Network with our FREE Cyber Threat Assessment Program (CTAP)

Analyse Network Security, Productivity and Performance

Your organisation may have already deployed numerous security tools to combat cyber threats and limit the impact of successful attacks. However, as your network grows in scale and in complexity:

  • How confident are you in the effectiveness of those cyber security solutions?
  • Are they able to detect the sophisticated cyber attacks that we see today?
  • Can they identify emerging cyber threats? Do they encompass web, cloud and app usage?
  • Do you know what applications are being used across your network?

Measuring the effectiveness of the security solutions in place has become increasingly difficult and it is wise to regularly re-evaluate the effectiveness of your cyber security tools and solutions to ensure that they are working effectively and efficiently, a Cyber Threat Assessment Program (CTAP) can help you achieve this.

The Cyber Threat Assessment Program At a Glance

Infosec Partners are able to remotely undertake a cyber threat assessment to analyse your network.  The assessment will validate your network’s current security, application usage, and performance:

  1. Purpose: To address important concerns such as productivity, and/or utilisation and to identify the security risks within your organisation.
  2. Outcome: Provides an understanding of your cloud/web/app usage and how this impacts on the performance of your network and assesses & identifies security gaps and the security threats facing your organisation, including the risk of ransomware, phishing and email fraud.
  3. Delivers: Each assessment report includes a set of actionable recommendations that can be used to refine your security and network utilisation to mitigate threat concerns, including the products and services that will strengthen your cyber security posture and details of flexible deployment options designed to minimise network disruption.

How a Cyber Threat Assessment is Undertaken

As Fortinet experts, and without any risk or disruption to your existing network, we remotely deploy a virtual FortiGate firewall to monitor key indicators within your network. You will be able to see how the Fortinet operating system (FortiOS) works, become familiar with the user interface, and even look at the performance relative to any existing firewalls.

After several days of network monitoring, you will receive a Cyber Threat Assessment Report which is divided into three primary sections:

Security & Threat Protection

  • Application Vulnerabilities
  • Malware/Botnet Detection
  • At Risk Network Devices

User Productivity

  • Application/Cloud Categories
  • P2P, Proxy, and Remote Apps
  • Web and Browsing Habits

Network Utilisation and Performance

  • Bandwidth Analysis
  • Log and Session Rates
  • Firewall CPU/Memory Use

The assessment report provides an unprecedented insight into security and threat prevention, user productivity and network utilisation without compromising performance or adding latency.

Most importantly, the Cyber Threat Assessment Report will translate this information into recommended actions that you can take to mitigate security and threat concerns, improve user productivity and optimise network utilisation.

If you are looking for further support and guidance to implement the recommended actions, we can then work together to improve the security posture of your organisation and to optimise your network.

    What is a Cyber Threat Assessment Programme?

    A Cyber Threat Assessment Programme is a framework designed to provide a quick, easy and free insight into your security posture.

    What does a Cyber Threat Assessment Programme specifically look at?

    It looks at 3 key areas of your business:
    1) Your Network Vulnerabilities - Our assessment will identify which application vulnerabilities pose a risk to your network, which malware and botnets have been detected, which phishing attacks are bypassing your defences, and which devices are most vulnerable to a security breach.
    2) Application and Content Management - Our program can help you gain visibility into the usage of peer-to-peer, social media, instant messaging, and other apps across your organisation. We'll also identify any spam, newsletters, or adult content that may be clogging up your email and suggest ways to regain control.
    3) Network Utilisation and Performance - Our assessment will help you understand your network's throughput, session, and bandwidth usage during peak hours. This information can be used to optimise network performance and ensure that critical applications are always available when you need them.

    What are the benefits of CTAP?

    The Cyber Threat Assessment Programme provides a detailed report of network activity, plus recommended actions that you can take to mitigate security and threat concerns, improve user productivity and optimise network utilisation.

    What happens during a Cyber Threat Assessment?

    A FortiGate next generation firewall (NGFW) is installed remotely on your network, giving an
    unprecedented insight into security and threat prevention, user productivity and network utilisation without, all compromising performance or adding latency.
    After several days of network monitoring, you will receive the detailed Cyber Threat Assessment Report.

    Is the Assessment and Firewall set up remotely?

    Yes the Fortigate NGFW is set up remotely by our expert cyber security consultants, there will be no impact to your operations.

    How long does it take to set up?

    Around 30 minutes!

    We suggest installing another for this assessment, that way we can also see how effective your existing firewall is.

    What does the Assessment report contain?

    The report is split into three primary sections:
    1) Security & Threat Protection: reporting on application vulnerabilities, detection of any malware/botnet Detection and identification of anu ‘at risk’ network devices.
    2) User Productivity: reporting on web, app and browsing habits.
    3) Network Utilisation and Performance: analysis of bandwidth, sessions and firewall activity.

    How long does it take to generate the Cyber Threat Assessment report?

    It takes around 2-3 days to produce the report and recommendations which will be sent to you in PDF format.

    How much does the Cyber Threat Assessment Programme cost?
