Cyber confidence comes from knowing your people, process and technology are aligned and that means it's critical to turn policy and assessments into action.
Ionize works with you to build pragmatic and effective security solutions tailored to your business, budget and industry. We can build and deploy for your own team to operate or we can help run it for you. The choice is yours.
Architecture Development & Review
Security by design
As your business becomes increasingly digital in its delivery, cybersecurity is no longer an optional add-on. By integrating secure-by-design principals at project initiation you can reduce risk and rework, saving valuable time and money.
But this can't come at the cost of slowing down your innovation efforts.
Ionize can help you develop realistic and cost-effective objectives for your security architecture from project kick-off all the way through to delivery. By leveraging our experience, we can help you avoid the cost and pain associated with addressing security as an afterthought.
System & Network Hardening
Reduce the impact of an attack
No matter how hard you try, every system can be compromised. The key is not to focus on eliminating every vulnerability – in many cases, you can’t (not unless you want to turn off the Internet and lock yourself in a radio shielded room - we have one if you need it).
System and Network Hardening helps mitigate common vulnerabilities arising from practical design compromises that real-world systems need to make. Some hardening techniques involve removing unnecessary services, others involve adding additional security hardware and software.
Instead of aiming for an unreachable security nirvana, we recommend that you start by focusing on eliminating the most common vulnerabilities in your systems. That way the bad guys give up and move onto an easier target – buying you time to work on the more obscure problems as time and budget permits.
Each choice has its own compromises (especially if you have to unplug from the Internet), Ionize can help guide you through the trade-offs and help harden your systems in the most efficient and cost-effective way possible.
Secure Software Development
Develop software with fewer security bugs
After human error, most of the successful security exploits are the result of bugs in the apps & software you and your business you rely on.
While we can detect these bugs through scanning your apps while they’re live and in production, as with many things, an ounce of prevention is better than a pound of cure.
Ionize Defensive Security practice specialises in helping you and your teams build better software by leveraging best-practices in secure software development methodologies. Partnering with our Application Code Review auditing services, Ionize can demonstrate existing vulnerabilities, teach you how to avoid them, and build a framework to prevent such vulnerabilities being introduced in the future.
As with all of our services, we understand that changing the way your entire organisation and its suppliers does things isn’t possible overnight, and so we tailor a program of incremental change that provides quick wins for you and your team while providing a long-term transition to a security-aware developer culture.
