Layered Security

Complete protection for your network, data and digital assets

What is Layered Security?

Layered security is a strategy that implements multiple security controls across an organization’s IT network to protect all potentially vulnerable areas where a data breach or cyberattack could occur. Your reputation as an MSP depends on your ability to stay ahead of ever-evolving data security risks, and the overall goal of the layered approach is to keep your customers’ businesses operating and secure at all times.

Mission Critical Assets

The layer that is absolutely critical to protect. Think financial records, medical records, operating systems or your entire cloud infrastructure – anything that would stop a business from operating in the event of a data breach. Every business has unique Mission Critical Assets that each require their own protection.

Data Security

Protection of both the storage and transfer of data. This is what hackers, cybercriminals and even your own staff or contractors could steal and use maliciously. The data layer requires dedicated protection, as it can be used to bypass the Network, Application, Endpoint and Cloud security layers too.

Application Security

Securing the software that a business depends on. From Microsoft Office 365 to Slack to Zoom – these are all prime targets for security threats such as ransomware and other malware, and another gateway to the Data, Endpoint, Network and Cloud security. Preventing unauthorized software is also key to this layer.

Endpoint Security

Securing the software that a business depends on. From Microsoft Office 365 to Slack to Zoom – these are all prime targets for security threats such as ransomware and other malware, and another gateway to the Data, Endpoint, Network and Cloud security. Preventing unauthorized software is also key to this layer.

Network Security

Limiting access to a network for employees, and eliminating access altogether for potential attackers. Email and the web can open up a network to a huge range of threats – malware, data leaks, spam, insider sabotage – and security measures for both inbound attacks and outbound data needs to be implemented.

Perimeter Security

The outer layer of a network. Expanding on the Endpoint layer, this includes not only computers and communication devices, but printers, photocopiers and anything other wireless access points. Firewalls, encryption, anti-virus software are part of the process, as well as device management and usage policy.

The Human Layer

Security breaches are almost always caused by human behavior. From phishing emails and poor IT training to deliberate exploitation of data, there are significant weak spots to be secured. Cybersecurity awareness training is at the forefront of this layer, as well as email security and incident response protocol.
