Next-Generation Firewall

Securing your business’ first line of cyber defense

Cyber-criminals are crafting increasingly malicious tactics to threaten businesses every day. That means that simply installing a firewall is not enough to keep your business safe—it must be constantly monitored and updated to ward off new and potential risks.

Avow Security’s 24/7/365 Next-Generation Firewall service takes care of this process for you, saving your business the time and resources it would normally take to constantly manage your firewall.

You’ll gain:

  • Best-of-breed firewall protection, vetted by our security experts.
  • Round-the-clock monitoring to assess changing cyber risks.
  • Regular firewall updates that ward off the latest threats.

percentage failed firewall

In 2016, 89% of companies that experienced a security breach already had a firewall in place; 44% did not comply with industry requirements.

Endpoint Protection

Optimizing endpoint security for heightened protection

Ransomware, emailed viruses, and “malvertising” ads are not only becoming increasingly common, but increasingly convincing as well. SMBs require anti-virus protection that minimizes the potential for human error and mitigates the costly damages of malware.

Avow’s Endpoint Protection solution ensures that endpoints such as PCs, laptops, and servers comply with uniform anti-virus and security requirements.

You’ll have:

  • Anti-virus solution that protects against today’s increasingly advanced threats.
  • 24/7/365 remote management of endpoint security across your environment.
  • Peace of mind that your end users are protected.

Patch Management

Proactively eliminating software vulnerabilities

Any computer software can contain unseen vulnerabilities, and the longer they are left unpatched, the more easily they can be targeted by attacks. But with new PC, laptop, and server operating systems vulnerabilities being identified and hundreds of patches released each month, keeping up can be a full-time job.

Avow’s Patch Management solution simplifies this process for you, automating patches and software updates for all of your PC, laptop, and server operating systems. We continuously scan for and install available patches that are relevant to your business’ software vulnerabilities.

You’ll benefit from:

  • Continuous, proactive execution of software fixes.
  • Streamlined patching for all of your PC, laptop, ans server operating systems.
  • Greatly reduced risk of security breaches due to software vulnerabilities.

2 year vulnerabilities

In 2017, 90% of organizations recorded exploits for vulnerabilities that were three or more years old.

Email Security

Intercepting malicious email content, blocking costly data loss

Advanced spear phishing attacks, such as those that spoof or hijack legitimate sender domains, are just some of the latest scams hackers are using to slip malicious payloads through your email gateway. Combating these threats requires equally advanced spam detection and email filtering.

Avow’s Email Security solution provides comprehensive phishing and malware protection by employing multi-layer email filtering to rapidly and accurately detect, block, and respond to suspicious content and attachments.

Our managed solution ensures:

  • High-accuracy reputation filtering to identify and block spam before it crosses the email gateway.
  • Protection from new zero-day threats with detection technology that is updated in real time.
  • Scanning of emails and attachments together in context to detect and block content commonly used by malware writers, including those containing ransomware.

business email compromise

Losses from incidents of Business Email Compromise (BEC) rose 87% from 2016 to 2017 and are only expected to grow.

Web Security

Protecting users from reaching malicious internet destinations

The wealth of productivity enabled by the internet also comes with a slew of online threats, all of which are evolving every day. SMBs need a standardized, automated way to ensure employees are protected wherever and however they access the web.

Avow’s Web Security solution uses advanced and continuously updated intelligence on existing and emerging online threats to automatically detect and block domains and IPs that are likely to be malicious, whether accessed on or off your network.

Our managed solution provides:

  • Visibility into all internet activity, over all ports – even once users have left the corporate network.
  • Advanced threat intelligence, using the latest URL and file reputation scores, to predict and detect malicious domains and IPs.
  • Blocking of these threats over all ports and protocols before they reach your endpoints or network.

Security Awareness Training

Reducing common mistakes that could be compromising your network

We train every employee on ways to identify the sophisticated forms that spam, phishing, spear phishing malware, social engineering, and other cyber threats take today, empowering them with the knowledge to help reduce their exposure and safeguard your business.

Our training includes:

  • Awareness training on how to understand the mechanisms of spam, phishing, spear phishing, malware and social engineering; how to set secure passwords; etc.
  • Instruction on how to recognize and report suspicious links, activity, etc.

Vulnerability Scanning

Locating weaknesses—before hackers do

Cyber-criminals often scan networks to find vulnerabilities that they can take advantage of in order to virtually hold businesses hostage. If hackers are scanning your network for weaknesses, then you should be, too.

Avow’s Vulnerability Scanning gives you a clear, comprehensive picture of your business’ cyber-profile, showing you exactly which security measures need to be strengthened in order to remain secure. We also help proactively identify target areas of new and evolving threats.

We provide:

  • Scans of operating systems, databases, and applications in physical, virtual, and cloud infrastructures, which identify network weaknesses and vulnerabilities.
  • Proactive recommendations for eliminating identified vulnerabilities.

nvd vulnerability count

As of June 2017, The National Vulnerability Database (NVD) had scored over 90,300 vulnerabilities that could potentially be leveraged for attacks on U.S. companies.

Incident Response

Limiting damage to control the cost of a security breach

When a security incident does occur, the way it is addressed can make or break a small to mid-sized business. The longer they wait to respond to a breach, the more data and money they stand to lose.

Avow’s Incident Response ensures that a remediation strategy kicks into action the moment that your business’ network is compromised. If a breach is detected, Avow will work with you to verify the indicator of compromise and contact our response team partner with the incident information for immediate assessment and containment as needed. This encompasses:

  • Predictable Incident Response Service that helps resolve aspects and impacts of cyber breaches.
  • Detailed reporting which summarizes major findings, affected devices, and eradication measures, and includes recommendations to enhance your organization’s security posture.

time of detection

A 2016 survey found that 21% of business owners had a “time to detection” of 2-7 days; only 33% were able to respond to a cyber-attack in under a day.
