5 Solutions to Boost Your Cyber Security Posture in 2015

With numerous companies and organizations – from Sony to the MLB – falling victim to high-profile breaches, 2014 certainly generated lot of cyber security buzz.

Now, as 2015 approaches, many organizations are taking a lesson from 2014 and aggressively driving their firms toward stronger cyber security solutions.

If your company plans to improve its cyber security position in the coming year, there are some key resources, tools and services that you need to be aware of. These five proven solutions can vastly improve your security posture and ensure that your organization, its information and its clients are better protected from cyber crime.

1. Security Operations Centers

Many of the most high-functioning cyber security programs have achieved success by creating a centralized security operations center (SOC), which allows for integrated monitoring, scanning and intelligence systems. This approach offers security teams a comprehensive, real-time view of all pertinent cyber security information, and it enables them to act on that information in a consistent, coordinated manner. However, it isn’t an option reserved exclusively for large companies with equally substantial budgets. Companies of all sizes can actually gain access to a SOC solution by partnering with a cyber security provider like Lunarline.

2. Managed Security Services

Companies that don’t have the resources to manage an internal SOC still need a solution for real-time monitoring and rapid response. For these organizations, managed security services can be an affordable alternative, especially for small and mid-size companies.

3. Vulnerability Scan Converter

Too often, security professionals waste their time on legwork that takes them away from valuable, analytical functions. And nowhere is this problem more evident than in vulnerability scanning procedures, where converting a single set of scan results into useable reports can take hours.

To solve this problem, Lunarline created its Vulnerability Scan Converter (VSC), a tool that automates the creation of reports from vulnerability scan results data. Reducing report preparation time to a matter of minutes, VSC is a powerful tool to help teams focus their time on the highest value efforts

4. Sniper

Vulnerability scans are only one part of the equation when identifying threats in corporate systems. While they are helpful for automating much of the task, they do not identify the critical weaknesses that hackers often exploit. Finding these issues takes skilled pen testing, a capability that many security teams fail to undertake due to its demands on time and resources.

This is why Lunarline developed Sniper, a pen testing tool that automates our elite testers’ proven methods to make your tests faster and more effective.

5. Airlock

Most tech resources are not up to security standards right out-of-the-box. This presents a formidable challenge to security professionals, who often end up spending hours applying secure configurations to a single device. Airlock simplifies this process by automating the application of customized security settings. This cuts the time required for secure configuration down to minutes, instead of hours.

No matter what cyber security capabilities you intend to implement or improve in 2015, Lunarline has the solutions that will help secure and safeguard your organization.

As Lunarline's Director of Federal Sales, Spence actually loves working on proposals. If there were any doubt, this is proof that he is in fact certifiably insane.
