Managing risk and security for business technology and infrastructure. Protect your valuable data with real time intelligence.
Every company needs to take security seriously. You know this. Where Seric can help is not telling you about the threats you know about, but the threats you don’t know about.
Persistent threats are targeted against every organisation, while opportunists gathering information for use at a later date, stealing intellectual property, fraud for straight cash value or stealing credentials to sell on the black market.
With the changing world, incorporating “everything connected”, “always on”, mobile and “bring your own device” you can no longer rely on owning and securing the end device, so deep analysis of transactions and connections is the most effective defense to stop or identify a breach.
Seric can help you identify your risks and execute a plan to improve your security profile. We have gathered together a suite of advanced security analytic solutions that can be integrated and deployed easily within your organisation.

Security Information and Event Management
SIEM devices gather security feeds from multiple sources, such as firewalls, operating systems, applications, and end point solutions. That raw data is then correlated and analysed to identify and rate possible breaches, allowing you to identify early and act quickly on a breach. We recommend IBM QRadar and Alienvault.
Traditional firewalls should be augmented with next generation security devices, giving multi-layer protection and adding advanced features. For example, the IBM XGS appliance inspects encrypted SSL packets and provides extremely granular layer 7 application protection. This sophisticated setup allows you to customise access to specific websites that may form part of your business strategy. For example you may wish to allow or deny access to facebook, to post to facebook, to run applications in facebook, all with individual permissions.
Trusteer and ThreatMetrix intelligently validates connections and transaction to your business. By checking the end device, associated accounts with that device and user habits, ThreatMetrix scores the likelihood of this person being who they say they are. In a fraud context both these technologies can dramatically decrease the amount of transaction going to investigation, while keeping fraudulent trades out. Many companies layer the two solutions on top of each other to increase their protection against fraud.
Trend Micro Deep Discovery analyses traffic as it flows through your network, looking for malware, using its advanced analytic engines. Through heuristic analytics it can identify as yet unknown strains and then runs the code in its sandbox environment to check if it is malicious or not.
Social and Web Analysis
Digital Shadows is Software as a Service (SaaS) access to one of the best security analytics networks. Digital Shadows watch the internet and the dark web, gathering information to help you to ask and answer questions such as:
- What confidential, sensitive or proprietary data is leaking through your boundary data?
- Who is planning a targeted cyber attack against you and how and when will they do it?
- What potentially brand-damaging information is being published on-line?
- How are the safety and security of your key employees being compromised by online material?
