Security

The security threat landscape increases as technology advances, and dramatic expansion of the attack surface has seen even the most capable IT teams exposed.

No aspect is immune: in this ever-evolving environment it is the business process that protects a business’ assets and employees. For example, the adoption of cloud computing and software as a service, has made the boundary of any network less clear and much harder to protect. Every business is different in terms of processes, applications and people and each element of the business systems needs protection. Overlooking any element can compromise the entire structure, with massive potential impact on the business’ brand reputation and financial performance.

As a compliance-driven business and Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) Blaze are equipped with over a decade of experience in understanding boundary-based security and layer security architecture that covers the entire attack surface. It is complicated and structing a business around this requirement comes with a vast array of challenges for both the business and Blaze as the managed security service provider. Choosing the right partner that understand these complex 

Compliancy

Without compliancy standards the security of an IT infrastructure will be limited. A security framework like PCI-DSS, or Cyber Essentials helps business drive security into every critical business process and system exposed to Cyber threats. Certain standards are specific to industry requirements, others are more generic and apply to all businesses. The enforcement of GDPR (General Data Protection Regulation) means all businesses need to have a framework in place and failure to do so will leave you exposed to fines from the ICO

Blaze helps businesses with compliancy in several ways:

  • We operate a compliancy-driven network that is audited to PCI-DSS standards, thereby removing compliancy strain from business owners and IT teams. Our experience of this complex undertaking (over many years) enables Blaze to provide customers with consultancy advice on how to become compliant under a vast array of compliancy standards.
  • We work closely with our partners to ensure our customers are provided with initial gap analyses if no framework exists. Where necessary our partners provide auditing services to ensure standards are being met so compliancy accreditations can be received.
  • Compliancy evolves and changes with business needs, and for this reason ongoing engagement is provided to cover employee training, process gap analysis, and audits to ensure compliancy process is followed.
