Access Management for Privileged Users

Leveraging privileged access management, various clouds and their users can be helped in a controlled fashion. When planned properly, the strong access rights are protected in a way where the malicious users have more difficult access to the privileged accounts decreasing breaches, while the correct users see benefits of simpler access to the various cloud services.

When moving to the cloud, agility and speed is the key and as a result management of privileged users may be initially be seen as a burden. These may include root or admin accounts, privileged user accounts, service accounts, application accounts or domain admin accounts. The burden is often initially ignored resulting in privileged rights being shared throughout different organizations and companies with eg. the cloud service provider, application developers, system integrator, internal developers etc. As the amount of different clouds and privileged users grows the management of these become a very time-consuming or less secure practice. Additionally, accounts with higher access rights than regular users, or privileged accounts, are frequently misused in breaches.


Bug Bounty Program

Most organizations have an increasing number of applications and servers to serve customers, partners, and employees, creating a complex environment to manage. A private bug bounty program will assess your security with a black-box view, like a cybercriminal looking for the weakest points.  A bug bounty program does not entirely replace the need for more traditional assessments or security engineering work. However, it cost-effectively complements them and helps you improve security in an agile manner.

We will set up the bug bounty program for you. We work together with the leading bug bounty platforms, and our expert team helps define the digital boundaries where external hackers are allowed to operate. Our professional bug hunters, with proven skills and track records, will search your systems for anything that a malicious actor could use. Once a weakness is found and confirmed, we report it and help you fix the flaw.

Contact us for more information about our bug-hunting services.

Cloud Platform Security

Our specialists support building your cloud environment according to recommendations provided by the vendor as well as our own experience derived from working with various cloud technologies and being a member of the Cloud Security Alliance (CSA). With our help you can rest assured that your cloud services are built securely to ensure proper business outcomes and continuity.

With ramping up Infrastructure or Platform as a Service several services can be utilized quickly by several parties to decrease time to market. However, taking into account all security recommendations that are relevant for all parties for all services may be cumbersome. Nonetheless, in case these are not addressed properly, the end result may be a sub-optimal solution security wise. These may be costly and time consuming to address later on in the service lifecycle, possibly leading to downtime for the business and in the worst case scenario losing critical business data and reputation.

Cloud Provider Assessment

We can help assess the relevant risks for different cloud providers be it a technical assessment or administrative risk based approach to ensure that all the relevant measures and controls are in place to protect your business. Furthermore, we can help you assess that the certifications that the cloud providers have are relevant to you and cover relevant operations. When taking into use new cloud services we help ensure that the services are safe to use.

As companies have started adopting cloud at an increasing pace, several cloud providers have started providing specific services for different business units be it HR, Sales, Finance or Marketing. The benefits of these new solutions are often invaluable, however prior to moving business critical operations and data to the cloud these providers should have sufficient security measures in place.

Cloud Security Framework

We help organizations draw up a Cloud Security Framework to support their transformation based on methods we have developed over the years as well as utilizing knowledge developed with Cloud Security Alliance. The result of the Cloud Security Framework is a model, which identifies and mitigates the risks through safe processes covering e.g. vendor lock in, necessary controls, permitted data, and availability.

Generally, organizations have a cloud strategy or an idea on what cloud services to use and for what use cases. The benefits of the use case are generally well drawn out and compared to costs of implementing the cloud services. However often the risks associated with the use case may not be well defined if at all. This may result in making decisions based on an incomplete business case and in the worst case ending up in a difficult situation to remediate all the risks.

Cloud Threat Modeling

When moving to the cloud, we help you ensure that the relevant risks are identified and can be addressed accordingly. Our specialists can utilize different threat modeling frameworks to help define which one is most relevant for your business. We have vast experience in conducting threat modeling and analysis for products and services. The main benefit of Threat Modelling is to identify relevant threats and risks to provide valuable information for rational security investments and decisions.

When taking into use cloud services or building them yourself a generic model for security investments is made across the project without clear visibility on what the real threats and risks are. Therefore, it may be challenging to see the whole picture and whether the investments are reasonable and provide the appropriate value for that specific use case.

Collaborator security audit

Managed Privileged Access Management (PAM)

Managing administrator accounts and other privileged credentials can be time-consuming for you IT. Privileged permissions typically accumulate because nobody remembers to remove them. Giving excessive permissions violates the principle of least privilege, and sharing admin credentials prevents you from having a proper audit trail. All this paves the way for cybercriminals who can use compromised credentials to lateral movement within the organization, resulting in serious data leaks.

Our Managed Privileged Access Management (PAM) service helps you with all kinds of privileged accounts: Windows domain admins, Linux root accounts, SSH keys, database accounts, and even social media accounts. We help you identify your essential accounts, the use cases for privileged access management, and security policies. We will implement the PAM solution using best-of-breed tools and maintain and monitor it for you.

With our PAM solution, you will achieve peace of mind, knowing that access to important data and administrative operations are protected. Your CISO, the legal team, end-users, and the IT department will all benefit because you will have:

  • Auditability and compliance. With a full audit trail, you can track what happened and who used the credentials.
  • Data protection. Credentials can be given to only one user at a time and are changed after every login.
  • Reduced IT costs and less manual work to handle permissions.

Managed Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)

Logs are the foundation that enables incident response, forensics, preserving a full audit trail, and ensuring compliance. To be able to translate individual log messages into technical situational awareness of your cybersecurity posture, you need to combine and correlate the log data with a Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) system.

Our managed SIEM solution combines data from multiple log sources and puts the data in context. By using machine-learning and User and Entity Behavior Analytics (UEBA), we enable you to detect actions before a data breach happens and track incident information. Our managed SIEM gives you the following capabilities:

  • Log collection and correlation, preserving the audit trail.
  • Alerts based on events and event-chains, with correlation to threat intelligence feeds.
  • Visualized information in dashboards and reports.

There are vast amounts of information related to cybersecurity out there. New threats, new attack types, new cybercrime groups – and sometimes misinterpreted results and false news. It can be hard to keep up with which cyber threats are relevant to your business, so you can be sure that you are optimally spending on cybersecurity.

Our threat intelligence service provides you with in-depth intelligence related to your company, such as your line of business, brand, and critical assets. Our threat landscape report, customized for your organization's threat landscape, will give you insight on strategic, tactical, and operative levels. You will get up-to-date information about the latest attack trends and activities in the North European market and the latest technical vulnerabilities and exploits relevant to your IT environment and assets.

Vulnerability Management

When applications are developed fast, sometimes speed is the enemy of quality and security. What about the server software you just purchased? Is it free from plaguing security vulnerabilities that can cause you expensive downtime? And does your IT service provider install security fixes swiftly after they have been released?

We measure your environments' threat exposure from an information security point of view. We translate technical vulnerability data to executive decisions on information security.

Our vulnerability scans are continuous and automated. You will get:

  • Expert analysis of current vulnerabilities and mitigation recommendations. 
  • Information on how resilient your information systems and networks are against common threats.
  • Information on the effectiveness of the vulnerability management process as a whole: How quickly are your vulnerabilities getting fixed?

By applying continuous scans for applications and computing platforms accessible via the internet (or internal network), your organization can rest assured that most obvious software vulnerabilities are discovered and reported. Continuous scanning significantly reduces the probability of production failures and other disturbances. Timely reporting ensures that responsible parties can execute prioritized remedial actions over your most critical computing assets.

Our service covers the scanning technology and its maintenance, including required licenses, regular vulnerability scans of the selected applications’ IT infrastructure platforms, reports on the results, and 24/7 support and a support center contact point. Contact us for more information.


Workforce IAM (IGA)

Internal and external workforce usually needs access to numerous IT systems. Granting access quickly to newcomers and removing or changing access rights in all these systems when people leave or change job roles puts pressure on the organization. Identity Governance and Administration (IGA) solutions tackle this complex topic of managing the entire workforce's identities and access rights.

We provide workforce IAM-related advisory and complete IGA solutions to help organizations improve information security, meet compliance requirements, and improve operational efficiency. We partner with the leading IGA cloud service providers and technology vendors and recommend an IGA solution that fits your individual needs and configure the solution to match your specific requirements.

With our IGA solution, you will be able to:

  • Control access granularly and efficiently.
  • Make sure new joiners and movers will get access on time, and that access is revoked when the workforce leaves the company.
  • Enforce risk-based controls and segregation of duties (SoD) when granting new access rights.
  • Run regular access re-certification campaigns to ensure access rights are up-to-date.
  • Ensure your organization meets compliance requirements related to workforce identity and access management.
