At the heart of all of these products sits Cisco Talos, the world’s largest threat intelligence organisation.

Keeping you cyber-safe

Cutting-edge security services

Protos Networks offers a wide-range of solutions for small, medium and large organisations – including network and cloud security, penetration testing and managed SOC. We protect against threats such as malware, phishing and data theft, and identify vulnerabilities which hackers could exploit.

We can also certify your business against the government-backed Cyber Essentials scheme – helping you demonstrate to your customers how seriously you take cyber security.

Security

A safe pair of hands

Protos Networks takes cyber security to new levels

With cyber-attacks sharply increasing, and constantly evolving, now is the time for businesses big and small to shore up their systems, networks and data protection measures. Government has sent a clear message about the risks posed to the economy by cybercrime, setting up the new National Cyber Security Centre.

At Protos Networks, we’ve taken this firmly on board, and developed a market-leading service comprising robust security software and various other state-of-the-art technologies. As members of the UK Cyber Security Forum; a trusted supplier of the Cyber Resilience Centre for Greater Manchester, and a UK Government-licenced certification body for Cyber Essentials, you can rest assured that our products and services will give you the protection you need.

The costs of a breach aren’t simply monetary, with such attacks causing immense disruption and damage to brand reputations. Cyber criminals don’t discriminate by size either, meaning your organisation could be at risk – whether you’re a big bank or a fledgling SME.

With a team of experts operating from our cutting-edge Security Operations Centre (SOC), Protos Networks keeps your business and its systems protected across your entire security architecture on a 24/7 basis – from endpoint to cloud, email, mobile devices, network and IoT. We also incorporate industry-leading anti-malware and anti-phishing technologies into our service to combat the latest cyber security threats, and assess your business against a number of cyber security standards to ensure best practice.

More about our SOC

Cyber Essentials is a government-backed, industry-supported certification scheme which outlines standards of cyber security appropriate for all organisations across all sectors. A Cyber Essentials certification is already mandatory for a number of Government and private sector contracts, and demonstrates that an organisation takes cyber security seriously.

Protos Networks is a Cyber Essentials Plus-certified company, and is accredited by IASME to assess and certify other companies against the Government’s Cyber Essentials scheme requirements. We offer consulting services to assist organisations in achieving Cyber Essentials or Cyber Essentials Plus certifications.

Our consulting services not only help organisations meet the basic requirements of the Cyber Essentials scheme, but exceed them with expert advice from our cyber security professionals.

ISO27001 is internationally recognised as the ‘gold standard’ for information security governance and compliance. By gaining this accreditation, your organisation demonstrates an ability to follow information security best practice, and thus enhances your reputation in the eyes of clients, customers, competitors and regulators. Additionally, if you deal with personal data, ISO27001 reduces the likelihood of a breach, and leaves you well placed to mitigate the impact if any breach does occur.

Our consultants conduct an initial review of your security controls, and subsequently outline a pathway to accreditation. We adopt a flexible approach to enable you to go at your own pace, while also offering workshops and training to help embed the cultural change required in your organisation to achieve and/or maintain ISO27001.

Protos Networks are an IASME licenced Certification Body who can assess organisations against the IASME Governance standard. This standard – which is based on international best practice – utilises a risk-based approach to assess a company’s information security, and includes aspects such as staff awareness, security policies and the technical controls which underpin these.

The IASME Governance certification is seen as a realistic alternative to ISO27001 for many SMEs, and was recently recognised as the best cyber security standard by the UK Government after consultation with industry groups. The Cyber Essentials assessment is included as part of the IASME Governance certification.

Penetration testing involves simulating cyber attacks against your systems in order to detect any vulnerabilities and areas at risk of a security breach. In essence, we put our hacker hat on, and scan your network devices, web applications and user devices to uncover any weaknesses before someone else does. We’ll then help you patch detected vulnerabilities, and secure your network and firewalls.
