A leap into digitalization

As a result of the global Corona pandemic, organizations are experiencing a new reality where the business is now very much reliant on digital business channels. It forces all organizations to take a leap into digitalization. Let's do it right! 

Building a path to secure digitalization in the current situation has four states:  Enable - Validate - Optimize - Operate

States of the digileap in the current situation

1. Enable

The first step is to enable remote work and collaboration for everybody so that the business can continue. Many organizations already have remote working capabilities, but they are not entirely in use or utilized across the entire workforce. Now everyone, including new users, needs to work 100% remotely.

It’s not just about remote work; it’s about secure remote work. Remember to protect your endpoints, secure your network connections, and protect the user accounts of privileged users.

Here’s how Nixu can help you quickly – ready in just a few days:

Work Securely From Anywhere with Endpoint Protection

Endpoint security is no longer just about securing employees' stationary workstations. Bring Your Own Device way of working, remote working, phishing, and thefts may weaken your security posture. Many data breaches start from the endpoint. Our next-generation antivirus and endpoint protection solution protects against all types of attacks from malware to the most sophisticated and stealthy nation-state attacks. The solution prevents and detects attacks beyond malware with the use of threat intelligence automation.

2. Validate

Security and privacy are not always on by default. It’s good to check during the enablement phase or immediately after that your security posture is what it should be. Depending on your line of business and the data you handle, you may need to tighten the security settings of the services you use.

It’s not just about remote work; it’s about secure remote work. Remember to protect your endpoints, secure your network connections, and protect the user accounts of privileged users.

Continuous Vulnerability Status Measurement for Web Applications and Computing Platforms

Applications need to be developed fast and sometimes speed is the enemy for quality and security. What about the server software you just purchased?

Continuous scanning significantly reduces the probability of production failures and other disturbances. Timely reporting ensures that responsible parties can execute prioritized remedy actions over your most critical computing assets.

We measure your web applications’ threat exposure from an information security point of view. When vulnerability scans are continuous and automated, the effectiveness of Vulnerability Management process is also measured as a whole, by revealing the remedy rate of found vulnerabilities.

Our service covers the canning technology and its maintenance including required license, regular vulnerability scans of the selected applications IT infrastructure platforms, and reports on the results as well as 24/7 support and contact point in Nixu Support Center.
