AVeS offers the insight, expertise, and best practices needed to gain self-sufficiency in IT Security. Our technical experts combine skill and real-world experience to help the entire IT organisation establish and manage programs to address and reduce risks to Digital Information Security, Availability, Performance, and Compliance. We believe that focused instructions help build competent, dedicated teams with specialised risk management knowledge and skills.

AVeS assesses your organisation’s unique risk profile and risk appetite, advises on information security strategies and implements IT security tools accordingly.

How do we reduce risk for businesses?

Endpoint Security

Endpoints = Servers, PCs, laptops, mobile devices, tablets and specialised equipment such as bar code readers or point-of-sale (POS) terminals. Each computing device on a corporate network needs to comply with certain standards before a company can grant access to its network. AVeS improves threat monitoring and reduces its administrative issues by using technologies such as anti-virus, anti-spyware, firewall, encryption, intrusion protection with network access control technologies.

Perimeter Security

Any network owner is required to know the full layout of the enterprise network. But if every node is the perimeter itself, then the layout of the network is less of an issue when it comes to the perimeter’s boundaries. The key to successfully defining the network perimeter is a combination of processes: • Automating network tools, • Globally enforcing host-based security software on the IT systems known to access the network, • Scanning for unknown devices which, by definition, may constitute a perimeter breach.

Database Security

Anyone involved in information security should be familiar with the acronym ‘CIA’. For data to be truly secure, each of these three elements must be satisfied: Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability. Confidentiality’ means the data is protected from unauthorised access and disclosure; it manages who has rights to what. Here we make use of Rights Management, Device Control and Encryption technologies to ensure that your data stays confidential. Integrity’ means the data is accurate and has not been subject to unauthorised alteration; the data is therefore a reliable source of information. Rights Management technologies enable us to control the structure and modification process of databases. If any changes are made to a database, we can track or log these changes in real-time. Availability’ means the data is accessible and usable when required, regardless of where the data resides: on-premise, in a private data centre or in a public cloud. We carefully combine the right type of data hosting with Backup and High Availability structures to make sure that your data is there when you need it.

Vulnerability Assessment

Traditional technology practices, such as reactive security tools and manual vulnerability management, inherently involve human error and slow response times. As a business, staying competitive means becoming proactive problem solvers. We can show you how to leverage proactive vulnerability management practices to manage your data and assets with automated policies and updated vulnerability database management systems.

Penetration Testing

Also known as Pen Testing. We have found that even the most mature and security-savvy organisations struggle to keep up with and address the latest cyber threats. We have therefore partnered with industry-leading technologies to conduct system penetration tests, set up incident response frameworks, conduct computer forensic investigations and provide you with the threat intelligence needed to make smart security decisions.

Security Architecture & Compliance

AVeS’s Information Security Architecture Frameworks consist of a set of artefacts that describe exactly what your business is, how your business operates, and what security controls your business requires. Decision-makers are hereby empowered to guide the organisation by determining: • where to invest resources, • where to realign organisational goals and processes, • and what policies and procedures will support core missions or business functions.
