Mapping cyber risks for your organizationy

The first step to identifying cyber risks is to regularly scan your website and email via internet.nl. By regularly going through this checklist you will gain insight into the latest internet standards and areas for improvement. The advice is therefore, get to work with the results of the test. In practice, it appears more and more often that the choice of a supplier stands or falls with security. After all, good cyber security looks more reliable.

This European legislation forces all organizations, large and small, to ensure that personal data is processed, stored and deleted according to strict guidelines when it no longer serves a purpose.

The security of cloud applications

More and more organizations today are using cloud applications, which are basically more secure than the current local servers and software. But there is more you can do as an organization to protect your networks and data and increase cyber security:

ZoneZero – Zero trust security

Zero Trust security with most simple solution with patented technology of ZoneZero. With this hybride (cloud or on-prem) ensure that you apply network segments to each application or system and maintain control within your organization. ZoneZero's patented Reverse Access technology is at the heart of the revolutionary internal access module. This technology prevents hackers from scanning ports (inside and outside the network). Your network is thus rendered completely invisible.

Zero Trust is an increasingly popular approach to network design. This concept was coined by Forrester. Zero Trust requires organizations to break down the network into smaller secure segments. This prevents malware from moving laterally across the network, preventing exposure of vulnerable systems and protecting sensitive data from unauthorized applications and users.

The reasons for using ZoneZero as a Zero Trust solution are:

  • Reduce the attack surface of your organization
  • Protect and control sensitive data
  • Enable the rollout of digital business applications
  • Support the migration of applications to the cloud
  • Ensures greater certainty and control of your data flows within and outside the organization
  • Prevents incoming malware and outgoing data loss
  • Zero Trust solution is also advised by the Dutch NCSC (Nationaal Cybersecurity Centrum)
  • Reducing costs (lowering your TCO)

Neowave – optimale authenticatie

For authentication use modern login methods with passwordless FIDO technology from Neowave. This also works seamlessly in combination with the above Zero Trust solution from ZoneZero..

ESET – goes beyond antivirus
