IT Security

Cybercrime is on the rise. In an increasingly complex and risky environment, you can’t afford to let security slide. From desktop to network to cloud, Brennan IT has your security covered.

The Security Landscape is Changing

Companies from small to large are facing increasing pressure when it comes to data security.

There’s growing complexity around how end-users access corporate networks, security attacks are becoming more sophisticated, and Australia’s Notifiable Data Breaches scheme and the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation means there are big fines if you don’t comply.

Given all this, cybersecurity and data security are more important than ever. Faced with more attacks, business reputations are on the line and in this risk-laden environment, you need more rigorous prevention, detection and response mechanisms in place to protect your reputation and maintain business as usual operations.

What’s your risk profile?

With cyber-threats increasing constantly, take this self-assessment to see if your current security measures are sufficient, and how exposed your business is.


A multi-layered approach to cyber security

Yet there’s no single solution. An attack can come from a wide range of sources, so individual security products and technologies must work together to form a cohesive security fabric that covers the complete ICT environment – from the network and endpoint to the cloud and beyond. This multi-layered approach is the only way to combat cyber-attacks and minimise the occurrence of a data breach.

Sounds complex. Yet if you follow the Australian Signals Directorate (ASD) cybersecurity guidelines – the ‘Strategies to Mitigate Cyber Security Incidents’ – it doesn’t have to be. The ASD’s ‘Essential Eight’ strategies are the most fundamental things you should be doing to ensure acceptable IT security habits are adopted across your organisation.


The good news? Brennan IT has designed and built our managed IT security services capability around the ‘Essential Eight’, giving you the confidence that your IT environment is secured to the right level.

This Sophos whitepaper paints a sobering security picture. Of 2,700 IT managers surveyed, 87% believe that cyber-threats are becoming more complex and 60% say their cyber defences are not enough. Further, more than half (54%) of organisations were hit by ransomware in the 12 months to October 2017. Get the full picture here.

Brennan IT’s security services

Security Consulting

Helping you mitigate and minimise the risk to your business

Security is all about managing risk – it’s up there as a C-level issue. You need to understand and remediate the greatest risks to protect internal systems, sensitive customer data and company reputation.

Brennan IT can help assess your security posture, identify the current technical and business security risks, and prioritise remediation efforts. Our Security Consulting services include:

  • Vulnerability assessments
  • Security audits
  • Facilitation towards ISO 27001 certification
  • Security implementation roadmaps
  • Education on security expectations to staff and stakeholders

Leading IT security and risk management to help you improve your organisation’s approach to security – reducing security incidents; meeting legal, regulatory and statutory requirements; and protecting the confidentiality and integrity of data.

Network Security

Future-proof your network with a next-gen firewall

Using complex techniques to sneak into corporate networks, client-side attacks are on the rise – you need to be very smart to outrun them. And traditional antivirus products aren’t enough to stop them.

For more complete protection against these types of attacks, including the endpoint, you need a next gen firewall solution with integrated features like firewall services, intrusion prevention, web content filtering, application control, antivirus and threat protection, and site-to-site VPN.

Brennan IT offers a virtual next gen firewall, available on a subscription model as a cost-effective way for mid-market customers to benefit from the rich feature set of next gen firewalls.

Email Security

The latest protection against threats

The cost of mopping up after a breach in email security is huge. You can avoid the costs – both financial and reputational – by implementing a proven email security solution that defends your business against spam, phishing and virus-laden emails.

Brennan IT’s email security service filters Exchange, Office 365 and Google Apps; and detects ransomware attacks, impersonation and CxO fraud, zero-day attacks and over 99% of spam. The system quarantines or discards threats to ensure complete security and productivity.

The service solves the most critical email security challenges facing business today; and gives your business complete peace of mind that your systems are safeguarded against all the threats thrown at it.

Endpoint Protection

Endpoint security is your first line of defence against ransomware

With ransomware making headlines for all the wrong reasons, IT managers face increasing pressure to defend endpoints – these are some of the most commonly targeted assets in the security battle.

Indeed, a recent Sophos survey found that 54% of organisations have had their endpoints hit by ransomware, with the average organisation hit twice.

Brennan IT offers a range of best-of-breed endpoint protection solutions – including Microsoft Windows Defender, Sophos Advanced Endpoint Protection and FortiClient.

And, regardless of your environment and the solution you go for, we also always recommend Sophos Intercept X. With its deep learning malware detection, Intercept X helps you ramp up protection against new and unseen malware – elevating your protection so you stay ahead of the latest threats.
