Why do I need this?

Global cyber-attacks are increasing at a rate higher than 50% year on year. One out of every 61 organisations have been targeted by ransomware each week, in 2021.

It is now crucial for organisations to continually monitor their environments for indicators of attack that may be visible long before any breach or ransom cripples the organisation. With many organisations having to report breaches publicly to the ICO it pays to resolve cyber security issues early before any damage is done.

Fordway’s Cloud Security Management service gives you all the controls, visibility, and expertise needed to secure your environments and data no matter where it rests, or where it is consumed.

Increasingly organisations resort to point solutions to secure different parts of their IT. Attackers leverage the gaps in an organisation’s infrastructure and processes to infiltrate and breach often deploying ransom ware or stealing sensitive information. What is a required is a holistic view of the IT landscape or attack surface and the knowledge of how best to defend each piece.

Fordway’s Cloud Security Management service not only brings the technology and tools required for a complete 360 view but also the processes, knowledge, and expertise to gain actionable insight into how best to defend and respond to threats and attacks.

Based around the 20 CIS controls, Fordway’s Cloud Security Management service is consumed in 3 simple steps. Leveraging Microsoft’s M365 and Azure products for cloud security and bringing in best of breed products and services from Fordway partners to ensure a complete security package that can be built around your specific requirements.
