Managed IT Security Services for Companies That Want to Safeguard Their IT Infrastructure from Malicious Cyber Attacks
The threat of cyberattack continues to grow year after year, especially for the relatively undefended small and midsized business sector. Unfortunately, hiring an in-house cybersecurity expert isn’t realistic. The competitive cybersecurity job market means that qualified professionals entertain competitive offers on a weekly basis. That puts building a competent cybersecurity team far outside the budget of most businesses.
The best way for companies to defend themselves against the onslaught of cybercrime is to partner with a managed security service provider (MSSP), like Kaytuso.
The fact is businesses and organizations that process any amount of credit card transactions are responsible for achieving full PCI-DSS compliance, which includes protecting cardholder data at every step of the payment process and beyond.

The NIST Cybersecurity Framework
Cybersecurity frameworks are collections of tools and best practices that provide a guideline for building strong cyber defenses. The National Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) framework is one of the most comprehensive security frameworks available and has been widely adopted in both government and private sector organizations.
We’re strong proponents of the NIST framework and have been using it for years to optimize our client’s cybersecurity protections. There are five core principles of the NIST framework.
IdentifyGain full visibility of your physical and digital assets, and their vulnerabilities
ProtectControl access to those assets with appropriate safeguards
DetectPossess visibility over your network and identify threats quickly
RespondContain cybersecurity events with a response plan and clear lines of communication
RecoverEffectively recover any damaged services with clear action points

Hundreds of millions of new malware variants are hitting the Internet every year To minimize the chances of being infected, you’ll need a vigilant, proactive, and timely response. Managed security services from Kaytuso include sophisticated, up-to-date solutions to help organizations protect themselves from these threats.
While ransomware may have peaked in 2017, it’s still the leading cyber threat facing SMBs. Projections from Cybersecurity Ventures shows that ransomware will cost businesses $11.5 billion a year for the near future. To stay secure, you’ll need to keep your protections updated and ahead of the latest trends in cybercrime.
Vulnerability and Penetration Testing
When was the last time you tested your network security? Any change in your network infrastructure or software can create unintended vulnerabilities, which is why it’s important that even small businesses perform regular testing of their cyber defenses. High-profile organizations in targeted industries like healthcare and finance should test with even greater frequency.
Vulnerability scanning uses automated tools to gauge the security of your network. Regular vulnerability scans can tell you a great deal about your security and help you identify subtle weaknesses that human analysts might miss on their own. This process involves checking for network misconfigurations, weak passwords, poorly configured proxy servers, as well as performing a detailed analysis of how the traffic on your network moves.
Uses remote protocols like secure shell (SSH) and remote desk protocol (RDP) to scan the interior of your network
Searches only the public-facing aspects of your network infrastructure
Penetration testing is a more comprehensive test in which humans simulate a real hacking attempt on your company network. Penetration testing uses all the same tools that real-world hackers would use to gain access to your data like phishing, social engineering, and application back-doors, making it an effective barometer of your organization’s real-world cybersecurity preparedness.
Statistics show that employee error is responsible for the most data loss incidents per year. Even though the majority of these events are unintentional, the fact remains that your staff is on the front line of your cybersecurity effort whether they know it or not That makes it imperative that your team is armed with the latest information and best practices for maintaining data security.
Phishing Protection Starts with Informed Staff
Phishing is the most common way for hackers to invade your network. By disguising emails or text messages as a reputable business or trusted individual, phishing attacks try to obtain valuable company information, like network credentials, passwords, or financial information. Research shows that a vigilant program for training employees can significantly over the rate at which they open phishing emails.
