A network is a hub of interconnected devices, servers, and IT resources. It is the resting place of your company’s most sensitive information. A network is typically multilayered, so it’s expected that basic network security possesses multiple layers of defences.
Mindfire’s network security architecture equips each security layer with advanced hardware and software tools, policies and controls that guarantee their safety. These network security controls are affiliated with threat and access controls, which could be physical, technical or administrative.
Mindfire’s physical security controls prevent unmitigated physical access by threat actors to components like routers, servers, etc. This is done via multifactor or biometric authentication.
Our technical controls safeguard data in transit to or from the network. These controls deny unauthorised persons access and also checkmate malicious employee activities.
Mindfire’s administrative security controls are policies and processes that control user behaviour. This way, only authorised users are granted access, while malicious actors masquerading as verified users are blocked.
Traditional firewalls inspect and control incoming and outgoing traffic within a website. They act as barriers between the trusted and untrusted areas in a network and use a defined set of rules to block or deny flagged traffic access to the network. Mindfire’s next-Gen firewalls do this and so much more. They possess additional embellishments like application awareness, advanced IPS and IDS, threat intelligence, etc., providing comprehensive protection for networks and resources against application layer attacks. These next-gen firewalls also use deep packet inspection as an additional shield against advanced malware.
Limiting access to your business’ network applications and systems to pre-determined users and endpoints prevents threat actors from infiltrating your network. Mindfire’s network access control (NAC) checkmates and blocks unsanctioned access by authorisation and authentication tools. Unlike other cybersecurity vendors, our NAC service integrates identity and access management (IAM) products that help identify role-based access control policies (RBAC). Thus, ensuring that each verified user or device within the network gains access to resources within their entitlement.
Mindfire’s VPN network security service ensures that verified users from remote endpoints can securely connect to your network and access resources. This is because information between these two points is encrypted via tunnelling protocols, and said user would need to authenticate before access is granted. This service benefits organisations with remote workers as they can access their company’s network remotely and securely, as our next-Gen firewall network security solution secures this channel.
Mindfire’s endpoint security service renders all endpoints within your network impenetrable to threat actors. These endpoints could be computers or mobile devices; by protecting them, you protect their associated data and workflows. This security system detects, analyses, circumvents and contains attacks already in progress. Therefore, Mindfire’s endpoint security provides comprehensive defence from evolving zero-day threats and sophisticated malware.
Mindfire’s Zero-Trust Network Access (ZTNA) is part of its access control solutions. Here, verified users are only granted the access and permission required to fulfil their roles. For instance, in a content management system, a user might have access to view a file but not permission to edit or comment on it. This way, data exfiltrations and DDoS attacks are checkmated within the network.
