The objective of a BOUNDARY SECURITY ASSESSMENT is to check the ability of the Information Technology (IT) infrastructure to resist compromise from unauthorized external sources. This is not intended to be a stealth vulnerability assessment and the relevant Network and Security documentation is provided by the Network administrator. The information and the various security access controls are analyzed, and recommendations for improvement are made based upon best practices. The assessment is done in line with the International Security Standard ISO 27000.

These are some of the areas covered
  • Network Boundary Protection design and implementation (includes Firewalls and Secure Remote Access)
  • Design, implementation and configuration of corporate network (includes LAN, VLAN and WLAN)
  • Network Intrusion Prevention/Detection Systems
  • Network Services and Access Control
  • Network Authentication, Logging and Reporting
  • Network End-Point protection (includes Anti-Malware and Content filtering)
  • External Services Vulnerability Scan
  • Firewall Audits
  • Penetration Testing

Vulnerability scanning & Penetration Testing

Security Assessment based on Managed Security Services, ISO 27000, including various levels of Network penetration and vulnerability testing, Network and Physical Security analysis, Business Continuity and Disaster Recovery, etc. It also includes a report indicating possible security exposures and recommendations for improvements

Information security policy design

The design, development and implementation of a comprehensive Information Security policy (including all related operational procedures documentation)

Data Protection

Open HDD and CDP

Archiving and copying of data so that it can be restored if there is loss of data.

CDP (Continuous Data Protection)

Captures data changes to a separate storage location using various technologies depending on needs.


Off site and online backup, fully automated, restore easily and anytime.

Secure Mobile Access

Mobile Device Management

Software that manages,monitors, supports and secures mobile devices applicable to both company-owned and BYOD devices.

Cloud Services

Cloud computing relies on sharing of resources to achieve coherence over a network by maximizing the effectiveness of the shared resources. Applications are up and running faster, with improved manageability and less maintenance, costs are reduced and mobility increased.

Unified Communications

Unified communications integrates real-time communication services (telephony, video conferencing, IM’s etc) with non real-time communication services (fax, voicemail, email, sms) into a single converged infrastructure. It creates a flow between the work employees do & the people they need to communicate with to get the job done faster and efficiently. Communications costs are lower, IT management is streamlined with lower total cost of ownership; employee productivity, efficiency and responsiveness to customers is improved.
