Securing a Company in a Managed Office

Security protocols comprising off the shelf antivirus and firewalls aren’t enough to provide the level of protection corporate entities need to ensure they don’t fall victim to a cyber attack.

The potential cost of a cyber attack can include more than just fines, remediation and direct losses because their brand name can suffer significantly in the event of a security breach.

What’s needed is a higher level of certainty than traditional security systems can provide. During their move to a more prestigious managed office in Gherkin, a corporate client realised they would also encounter uncertainty about the security of the new environment.

Connections to non-private networks in a new location mean a physical link to others who may be at particularly high risk of a breach. This is a significant issue in a managed office where the substandard security of others on the network would expose them to a larger number of entry points for attackers.

GBMS Tech installed our unique endpoint protection company-wide on all their systems. Our endpoint protection solution improves their security posture by blocking all threats by restricting the ability of any code to execute.

Blocking unauthorised code protects them from the physical vulnerability to data-theft and ransomware, but also to the potentially catastrophic damage to company and reputation should such events would incur.

This protection is uniquely suitable to give peace of mind when companies regularly connect to networks used by other systems with undependable levels of security.

Implementation was carried out in conjunction with the 3rd party management of the corporate client’s IT infrastructure. GBMS Tech rolled out the installation and configuration of endpoint security on all the system at the new address. Now, if any malicious code were to bypass the traditional security layers it will be automatically blocked from operation.

Ransomeware, hacking tools, and malware simply will never be able to function. During this process, GBMS Tech was able to highlight a number of other security issues including potential network vulnerabilities due to inadequate or improperly configured hardware.

 Although the implementation of GBMS Tech cyber security to a large extent negates the dangers of these weaknesses, they were earmarked for rectification and GBMS Tech was also able to recommend some best practices for increasing protection like adding two-factor authentication to company accounts.

GBMS Tech identified the venerably of the companies current protection which relied on industry-standard protocols and therefore could only offer what can only be described as “hope for the best” level security as there are inherent weaknesses in the way these basic industry-standard methods operate.

These dangers we exacerbated by the impending connections to non-secure networks as the customer moved to a prestigious managed office. GBMS Tech added a lockdown layer to their security to provide the level of reliability and certainty befitting an important Brand and industry disrupter.

Working with the 3rd party and building management, the roll-out was swift and painless and also highlighted potential dangers located within the network which could have affected all companies at that address.
