System Hardening Assessment and Consultancy

You can't rely on your perimeter. Secure everything

System hardening is a critical security practice that helps protect your organisation's infrastructure from cyberattacks. Hardening your systems makes it more difficult for hackers to gain unauthorised access and carry out malicious activities.

Performing a System Hardening Assessment can provide several benefits, including:

Improved Security

The main benefit of performing a System Hardening Assessment is improved security. The assessment can help identify security vulnerabilities in the system and recommend appropriate countermeasures. This can include closing unnecessary ports, removing unnecessary services, and strengthening authentication and access controls.

Better Compliance

Help organisations achieve and maintain regulatory compliance. Many regulations and standards, such as the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS), require organisations to implement specific security controls to protect sensitive information. A System Hardening Assessment can help identify gaps in compliance and recommend appropriate measures to achieve compliance.

Increased Resilience

Increase the system's resilience. By identifying vulnerabilities and implementing appropriate countermeasures, organisations can reduce the risk of successful attacks and limit the damage caused by those that do occur.

Improved Performance

By removing unnecessary services and processes, the system can run more efficiently and use fewer resources, resulting in better performance and faster response times.

Cost Savings

Reducing the risk of security incidents and the associated remediation costs. They can also help organisations avoid fines and penalties for non-compliance with regulations and standards.

Improved Reputation

By demonstrating a commitment to security and compliance, System Hardening Assessments can help organisations improve their reputation with customers, partners, and stakeholders. This can lead to increased trust, loyalty, and business opportunities.

Performing a System Hardening Assessment can help organisations improve security, compliance, resilience, performance, cost-effectiveness, and reputation. It is essential to any cybersecurity program and can help organisations reduce risk and achieve their business goals.
