Managed Services: A Better Understanding

Managed Detection and Response (MDR)

Managed detection and response (MDR) is a cybersecurity service that continuous monitoring and rapid response to potential security threats. MDR combines advanced threat detection technology, security expertise, and incident response capabilities to detect and respond to cyber threats in real-time. With MDR, organizations can proactively identify and respond to cyber threats before they cause damage. This service typically involves an external security provider who monitors the organization’s systems and networks around the clock and provides alerts and guidance to mitigate any threats that are detected.

Network Layer (DNS) Protection

Network layer (DNS) protection is a cybersecurity service that helps protect networks from malicious attacks by filtering and blocking harmful traffic. DNS (Domain Name System) is a critical component of the internet that translates domain names into IP addresses. DNS protection uses this technology to analyze internet traffic and identify and block any harmful requests. This helps prevent cyber threats such as phishing, malware, and ransomware from entering the network. By implementing DNS protection, organizations can enhance their cybersecurity posture and reduce the risk of data breaches and other cyber attacks.

Proofpoint Email Protection

Proofpoint is a cybersecurity partner that provides email protection services to help organizations defend against email-based threats. Email protection involves analyzing and filtering incoming and outgoing email traffic to identify and block malicious messages, including phishing emails, malware attachments, and spam. Proofpoint’s email protection services uses advanced threat intelligence, machine learning, and real-time analysis to identify and block threats before they reach the user’s inbox. Galileo Systems Group has partnered with Proofpoint to reduce your risk of email-based cyber attacks, protect sensitive information, and ensure compliance with industry regulations.

Cloud-Based Data Storage Management

Cloud-based data storage management refers to the practice of storing and managing digital data on remote servers that can be accessed via the internet. With cloud-based data storage, organizations can remotely store, manage, and retrieve their data from anywhere with an internet connection. This eliminates the need for an on-premise data storage infrastructure and provides scalability and flexibility to accommodate changing business needs. Cloud-based data storage providers offer various features such as backup, disaster recovery, data encryption, and access controls to ensure the security and integrity of the stored data.

Cybersecurity Awareness Training

Cybersecurity awareness training is crucial to educate employees and individuals on how to identify, prevent, and respond to cyber threats. By raising awareness and providing education on cybersecurity best practices, individuals can learn how to protect sensitive information, detect potential threats, and report suspicious activity. Cybersecurity awareness training also helps to create a culture of security within organizations, which can a reduce the risk of data breaches and other cyber attacks. With the increasing frequency and sophistication of cyber attacks, cybersecurity awareness training is essential to ensure that individuals and organizations are prepared to defend against potential threats.

Vulnerability (Patch) Management

Vulnerability (patch) management refers to the process of identifying, acquiring, testing, and installing software updates, or patches, to fix vulnerabilities and improve the security and functionality of computer systems and applications. Patches are released by software vendors to address known security issues or bugs in their software. Patch management helps ensure that systems are up to date and protected against known vulnerabilities, reducing the risk of cyber attacks. Effective patch management requires a systematic approach to prioritize and apply patches promptly while minimizing disruption to system availability and performance.
