More info

It is more important than ever to have a secure network. A secure network can help to protect your organisation from a variety of threats, including data breaches, malware attacks, and ransomware.

If you are looking for a way to improve the security of your network, then you should consider partnering with OCM in secure network design and implementation. We can help you to design and implement a secure network that meets the specific needs of your organisation.

Our Solutions

A secure network isn't built on a single technology, but rather a multi-layered approach using various components working in conjunction. Here's a breakdown of essential elements:

 

 Perimeter Security:

Firewalls: The classic defence, filtering traffic between your network and the outside world based on predefined rules. Modern firewalls often include intrusion detection (IDS) and intrusion prevention (IPS) features.

---

DMZ (Demilitarized Zone): A segmented portion of your network where you place publicly accessible servers (web, mail) for an extra layer of protection for your internal systems.

---

Web Application Firewalls (WAF): Specifically protect web applications from attacks like cross-site scripting (XSS) and SQL injection.

Endpoint Security:

Antivirus/Antimalware: Protection on individual devices (desktops, laptops, servers) to detect and block malware.

---

Managed Endpoint Detection and Response (MDR): Advanced solutions that monitor endpoint behavior for anomalies, providing faster detection and response to sophisticated threats.

---

Data Encryption: Encrypting data on devices, especially laptops and mobile devices, protects it even if the device is lost or stolen.

Network Segmentation:

VLANs (Virtual LANs): Dividing your network into smaller, isolated segments to control traffic flow and limit the impact of breaches.

---

Microsegmentation: More granular control, applying security policies down to individual workloads or even containers.

---

Zero Trust: A modern approach that assumes no user or device sh

ould be trusted by default. Requires strict authentication and authorization before access is granted.

 Identity & Access Management (IAM):

Multi-factor Authentication (MFA): Enhances security by requiring more than just a password for login (e.g., security token, biometrics).

---

Role-Based Access Control (RBAC): Defines access permissions based on job function rather than individuals, adhering to the principle of least privilege.

---

Password Management: Enforcing strong password policies and secure storage.

Security Monitoring & Response:

SIEM (Security Information & Event Management): Collects and analyzes logs from across your network for a centralized view of security events.

---

Vulnerability Scanning: Proactive identification of weaknesses in your systems and software for patching.

---

Penetration Testing: Simulated attacks to uncover vulnerabilities before they're exploited by real attackers.

 User Education & Policies

Security Awareness Training: Teach employees about phishing, safe password practices, and how to spot social engineering attacks.

---

Policies: Well-defined policies for acceptable use, incident response, data handling, and more are the foundation of good security posture.

Here are some of the benefits of partnering with OCM for secure defence in depth network design and implementation:

Expertise: the expertise to design and implement a secure network that meets the specific needs of your organization.

---

Experience: the experience in designing and implementing secure networks for a variety of organizations.

---

Resources:  the resources to design and implement a secure network, including the latest security technologies and tools.

If you are looking for a way to improve the security of your network, then OCM can help you to design and implement a secure network. ​OCM will:

Conduct a security assessment your network to identify any vulnerabilities.

---

Design a security plan for your network that addresses the vulnerabilities identified in the security assessment.

---

Implement security controls such as firewalls, intrusion detection systems, and data loss prevention systems, to protect your network from threats.

---

Monitor your network for signs of compromise and respond to incidents quickly.

---

Train your employees on security best practices to help them protect your network.

If you are concerned about the security of your network, then you should contact OCM for a free discussion
