RoundClock Security Suite

Mother provides a comprehensive solution that addresses all 6 essential components of cybersecurity. Our experienced team ensures the security, resilience, and preparedness of your business against the ever-evolving threat landscape. Partner with us to strengthen your defences, mitigate risks, and protect your business from cyber threats.

EDR Icon

EDR (Powered by SentinelOne)

  • Standard Anti-virus falls short against advanced threats.
  • Detect and counter threats on individual devices like desktops, laptops, servers, and mobiles, commonly targeted by cybercriminals.
  • Utilise agents on endpoints for activity monitoring, including user behaviour, network connections, file changes, and system events.
  • RoundClock EDR employs AI for real-time threat detection and prevention while continuously analysing endpoint data to pinpoint potential cyberattacks.

Vulnerability Scanning

  • Regular vulnerability scanning is crucial for managing risks and enhancing cybersecurity.
  • RoundClock provides comprehensive vulnerability scanning services.
  • Thorough examination of applications, networks, and systems to uncover potential flaws with our experienced team utilises cutting-edge scanning tools.
  • Detailed reports with actionable recommendations for remediation are provided.
  • Promptly addressing vulnerabilities prevents potential exploitation.
  • Stay proactive in safeguarding your business from potential attackers.

Next Gen Firewall

  • Next Generation Firewall (NGFW) surpasses traditional firewalls in terms of protection capabilities.
  • Traditional firewalls use rules like state, port, and protocol to allow or block traffic.
  • NGFWs require in-depth traffic analysis to defend against advanced modern cyber-attacks.
  • NGFWs are essential in protecting organisations from the evolving threats in today’s society

DNS Filter

  • In the current IT landscape, cloud technology enables remote work and poses security challenges.
  • Traditional network security involves loading firewalls with defence features to protect on-site assets.
  • When a significant portion of assets (like laptops) is off-site, they lack protection from the organization’s firewall.
  • Off-site endpoints are vulnerable to malicious infections and pose a threat when they reconnect to the network.
  • To address this, organisations need On-Net Internet security for main office devices and Off-Net Internet Security for remote device.

Backup and DR

  • Ensuring dependable backups is of utmost importance.
  • Disasters extend beyond hardware failures; malware attacks are a more significant threat.
  • Storing data in the cloud does not guarantee its protection.

Two-Factor Authentication

  • Two-factor authentication (2FA) offers an additional layer of security.
  • It significantly heightens your defences by making it more challenging for cybercriminals to gain access to sensitive data and systems.
  • Despite initial reluctance by many due to perceived hassle, implementing 2FA is not just an option. It is essential in today’s digital environment.

Device Compliance & Conditional Access

  • Enforce strict device compliance and conditional access policies to mitigate risk from unmanaged devices.
  • Use Conditional Access to grant or block access based on device compliance status.
  • Ensure devices meet security policy criteria to prevent unmanaged and non-compliant devices from connecting.
  • Conditional Access Policies may include:
    • Up-to-date Operating System compliance
    • Confirmation that Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) and DNS Filter are present and running
  • Device access is granted after meeting compliance criteria and successful user authentication

Why is cyber security important?

Cybersecurity holds significance as, once your devices or networks are breached, malicious actors gain entry to your system and data, potentially causing harm to your business. This can include theft of sensitive data, extorting ransoms for its release, complete data deletion, or network shutdown.

What are the types on attacks in cyber security?

There are 3 common types of attacks in cyber security:

  • Malware
  • Phishing
  • Ransomware

How can I secure my company's sensitive data?

To secure sensitive data, employ encryption, strict access control, backups, and staff training. Implement network and physical security, maintain software updates, and adhere to data retention policies. Monitor for suspicious activity, vet third-party vendors, and ensure compliance with regulations. Regular audits and mobile device encryption are crucial in this ever-evolving security landscape.

What are the best cybersecurity solutions for small businesses?

Small businesses can boost cybersecurity by using firewalls, antivirus software, training staff, securing passwords, encrypting data, and doing regular backups. Also, two-factor authentication and access control help. Monitoring networks and having response plans are essential. Audits, vendor checks, and cyber insurance add extra protection. Keep adapting to new threats.
