A new & challenging reality

As the world switched to mandatory home working, a new reality emerged that location-independence should be available to attract and retain high calibre staff.

However, in practice this poses security, compliance, and digital experience challenges that must be overcome to ensure happy, motivated, and productive staff.

Our solutions and managed services enable customers to make location-independence a reality by resolving these challenges at every stage.

Zero Trust Security (for secure remote access)

Overcoming traditional VPN issues and ensuring the right people in your company and supply chains can access the right resources - and nothing more.

VPNs can struggle to enable secure access and a productive digital experience. And as VPN technology has not progressed much since the 1990’s, it’s easy to see how they can inadvertently provide unauthorised network and asset visibility.

Based on context, our Zero Trust Network Access (ZTNA) solution dynamically creates 1-to-1 connections between the user’s device and the cloud/on-prem resources they need – just for the required duration.

This reduces the threat surface by creating a discrete, encrypted network segment of one – rendering everything else invisible and inaccessible.

Watch our quick ZTNA explainer video

Whether you need to provide safe and controlled access for third party Contractors, your supply chain, or to senior Execs, or indeed are looking to replace your entire VPN with something designed for today’s demanding needs, our Zero Trust solution will provide the secure, contextual, and easy-to-use means to achieve this.

Addressing the common cyber-threat vectors

Whilst security looks different from one company to the next, there are some threat vectors that we must all address no matter how small, large, or complex our organisations may be.

As an independant provider, we evaluate security vendors to bring you what we believe to be the best available tools in the market, tools that you can buy from us or that we manage for you – whichever suits your needs.

Email Security Protection

Different mail security tools are often viewed as much of the same, leading some companies to tick a convenient email security box in Google Mail or Microsoft 365.

But the reality can be a huge capability delta between tick box tools and a platform like ours that goes beyond known signatures and blacklisted URLs to spot spear-phishing, evaluate links, and safely detonate suspicious attachments in a virtual operating environment.

This lets you:

  • Block spear-phishing, sender impersonation and credential-harvesting exploits in real-time
  • Be prepared for the latest malware & attack methods – with intel updates every 60 minutes
  • Simplify setup & management – no hardware/software to install, patch or upgrade

And if you are wondering about convenience, our platform easily integrates with Office 365 Exchange Online and other cloud, and on-prem email services.

And to save more time, our tailorable Managed Security Service means we can also take care of your other security tools, like 2-Factor Authentication and Anti-Virus as and when they are due for renewal – providing you with one, predictable monthly subscription for all your security needs.

Save time and improve security. Contact us today to discuss your email security challenges.

Endpoint Protection

Desktops, laptops, and servers are all target points for criminal entry, so securing these devices with endpoint protection measures should be a given for companies large and small.

But contrary to growing perceptions, not all endpoint protection tools are made equal, and our platform goes beyond the blocking of common malware to provide:

  • Detection of threat activity with real-time indicators of compromise
  • The stopping of advanced threats and blocking of application exploits
  • Forensic information to investigate the route cause of an issue

And if you are just looking to save time by ticking an endpoint protection box in Google Mail or Microsoft 365, don’t forget we can take care of all your perimeter security tool needs and provide you with one, predictable monthly subscription.

Save time and improve security. Contact us today to discuss your endpoint protection challenges.

Secure Web Browsing

Despite decades of investment in web security, employee web access continues to present one of the most significant cyber-security risks. And whether you like it or not, your employees need to access the internet.

Our secure web browsing platform provides the means to safely click any link and visit web sites that contain malware, but without the malware being able to reach the network or endpoint.

This is not the same approach as VDI-based solutions that lack scalability and, ironically – have their own security vulnerabilities. We like to think of it as being similar to an airgap network, but without the drawbacks in Quality of Experience or user-acceptance.

Whether you need to safely perform dark web investigations or empower your workforce to use the internet and click any link without fear of malware infection, contact us today to discuss your needs.

Data Security & Cloud Compliance

If it makes it easier to get things done, the temptation can be very real for employees and supply chains to use unsanctioned cloud storage for company files. This can lead to a whole host of damaging data and compliance breaches.

Our Data Loss Prevention (DLP) solution prevents breaches by detecting and blocking data use both at rest (when stored on digital platforms) and in motion (when travelling between platforms and devices). This effectively renders files useless when unsanctioned access is attempted.

And our Cloud Access Security Broker (CASB) is a web-based portal that your staff can use for safely accessing your company applications. This lets you protect sensitive information and adhere to security policies whilst reaping the rewards of cloud migration and digital transformation.

Contact us today if you want to safely enable secure homeworking flexibility without data security or compliance.

Is Microsoft 365 Security the best answer to your needs?

Microsoft acquiring a security vendor to offer you a tick in the box for things like Email Security, Endpoint Protection, and CASB can save time, but does this convenience provide the protection you seek when evaluating security tools yourself?

Whether you have E3 or E5 licences, a tick in the box does not always offer the right security for your needs, and might not always be the most cost-effective option.

We think that having a direct line to your security provider is key to your success. Our customers tell us they really like our local, friendly, and responsive approach to supporting them with their needs before and during their contract term.

However, ticking that box to say you are covered is all that is required by some companies, but if you need something different, working with a provider like Phoenix Datacom with best of breed security tools from world-leading vendors means you are never far away from a friendly and responsive security partner who truly understands and cares about your needs.

And if you want to save time, we can also consolidate your existing security subscriptions into one monthly bill, things like: 2 Factor Authentication (2FA), Email Security, Endpoint Protection, and cloud platform-agnostic security compliance.

Contact us today if you want to upgrade your security and experience a new category of customer-centric service.
