“A recent audit identified major gaps and we help addressing them.”

“We need to overload some of our internal IT team’s responsibilities.”

Defense in Depth Cyber Security Solutions: Multilayered Protection

Defense-in-depth cyber security is a system of continuous and overlapping layers that work together to protect from various cyber threats. These layers are designed to create an interlocking barrier that is continuously monitoring and protecting your assets and range from easy-to-implement controls to complex security tools. With multilayered enterprise security, if one layer of defense is breached, there are additional layers in place to mitigate any exposure.

How Does Defense in Depth Work?

Considered a foundational best practice, this model is intended to handle sophisticated cyber attacks and delivers the kind of robust cybersecurity solution that is required for today’s volatile cyber landscape.

The goal of defense-in-depth is to make it more difficult for attackers to infiltrate your systems and to detect and respond to a breach. Creating multiple barriers slows down attackers and sends out intrusion alerts before significant damage is done. Multilayered cybersecurity will also satisfy many compliance standards for industries like financial services and life sciences.

What Should Multilayered Cyber Security Solutions Include?

To create a strong defense-in-depth approach that addresses the needs of your business, there are many security best practices to consider, including:

  • Next-Gen Firewalls
  • Security Operations Center (SOC)
  • Security Information Event Management (SIEM)
  • Role-Based Access Control (RBAC)
  • Mobile Device Management (MDM)
  • Multifactor Authentication (MFA)
  • Endpoint Security
  • And more!

These are just a few of the many possible security layers that can be used in defense-in-depth. The important thing is to have a mix of different types of tools and controls so that you can create a comprehensive security solution.
