Domain Name System (DNS) is what make the Internet user friendly. Basically, it’s an address book for websites. When you type www.askbis.com the DNS Servers convert that name to an IP address that goes to a web server. Using the correct DNS Server with the proper filters can be a great way to keep threats from entering into your network.
OpenDNS is a service that we use as a layer of protection that prevents cyberattacks. While a firewall and antivirus react to attacks after they have launched, OpenDNS observes Internet infrastructure before attacks have launched preventing malicious Internet connections. By pointing your DNS traffic to OpenDNS, it will stop 50% to 98% more attacks than antivirus and firewalls.
With new laws being passed every year, it is more important than ever that organizations meet regulations. From HIPAA to SOX, businesses are being audited for compliance on a regular basis. It can be difficult to pass if you don’t have certain measures in place.
With our BIS SIEM Compliance Management, you’ll be able to see who is attempting to access data or make changes. It will detect malicious activity by tracking and validating changes made in applications and the system. With this solution, you’ll be able to pass compliance audits including HIPAA, SOX, FISMA, PCI DSS, ISO 27001 and more.
When it comes to your company’s data, you can never have too many protections in place. More and more viruses are being created daily with the objective of gaining access to you and your clients’ confidential information.
With our BIS Firewall Security Management, it will reduce the number of security threats by filtering network traffic. We integrate multiple security features into one solution to create a product that will prevent cyberattacks with web filtering and anti-virus, anti-spam and anti-spyware while managing bandwidth.
The majority of security breaches could have been avoided if businesses had taken proactive measures. Unfortunately, most organizations don’t discover a potential threat until it’s too late. If they had been actively monitoring their network, they would have been able to find the threat and fix it.
BIS Vulnerability Scanning helps to prevent security attacks from occurring by detecting loopholes in your network. With our security solution, your network will be protected with monthly (unobtrusive) scans that will create a report of findings to show you potential security threats as well as any changes made to your firewall settings.

Understand the Anatomy of Attacks to Stay One Step Ahead
