The new IT
security paradigm

It is everyones right to have access to the most advanced technology to protect themselves against cyber attacks. In the event of a successful attack, it is critical to plan for an immediate restart.
New ideas around information security are constantly emerging. Cybercrime has increased in tandem with the introduction of networked digital technologies. While computer resources are by their very nature ‘clean’ and safe, threats to the security and integrity of our data have evolved exponentially across the world in recent decades. According to the most recent research, ‘serious’ cyber attacks on organisations throughout the world are increasing at a pace of more than 60% every year. Nobody can claim to be completely safe, and no technology can guarantee complete cyber security. Do we know who has access to our company’s information? Do we know how to avoid an assault and protect ourselves quickly? Do we have confidence that our employees can operate securely from any location, at any time, on any device? Whatever our answers to these questions may be, it is time for us all to tighten the security around our valuable IT resources. In this environment, businesses must be able to defend themselves against ever more frequent and increasingly sophisticated cyber threats. IT departments need to discover security flaws and be able to recover rapidly from cyber attacks. This is why SoftJam urges its customers to take a more comprehensive strategy to cyber protection and cyber resilience. SoftJam’s strategy is founded on the ‘Zero Trust’ paradigm, whereby each person’s productivity is safeguarded by using Microsoft’s integrated security technologies to constantly verify identities, data, apps, devices, and infrastructure. However, if a negative event does occur, implementing a cyber resilience plan will allow rapid detection and response, thus ensuring continued operations and minimising damage to the organisation. SoftJam can help you meet the cyber resiliency challenge!

Identity, Device, App & Data Protection

New ways of working and collaborating necessitate access to data, tools, and apps that aren’t constrained by the network and firewall that once defined the corporate boundary. Nowadays, a vast array of unmonitored devices have access to company data and apps. As a result, inconsistencies between endpoint and update settings create vulnerability in the form of a large attack surface for cyber intruders. Identities, devices, apps, and data become the new borders to be simultaneously safeguarded.

Governance & Compliance

Productivity is dependent on cloud services like Teams and Sharepoint Online. People collaborate and company data is routinely processed, transferred, and stored using these technologies. The flexibility of these platforms allows them to be used for a variety of purposes. However, it is vital to have a well-defined governance and compliance strategy in order to make them function securely and in line with a company’s criteria. Traditionally, information system governance and rule compliance have been regarded as annoyances and costs to be avoided.
