This approach enhances security and compliance while improving the efficiency of administering super user access. Administrators are granted only the rights they need nothing more, nothing less and all activity is tracked and audited.

By introducing an independent auditor layer to oversee the working sessions of your privileged users, your existing IT environment requires no change and your staff can do their day-to-day jobs without changing their working habits.


The content explosion of the information age has created major security challenges that affect corporations of all sizes particularly in terms of managing the control and flow of documents. CryptoGen offers an elegant and novel solution to these challenges with its automatic document classification tool, an extremely lightweight solution (no servers, agents or hardware of any kind is required).The end user, not just the IT related worker, is directly presented with the issue of information classification and security, which raises awareness in a simple, easy to understand and cost effective manner.

Classification type will be public, private, internal, confidential, top secret …etc and the solution applies to each MS Office component (word, excel, PowerPoint) and Messaging platforms such as Outlook and Lotus Notes.

CryptoGen engineers will assist the customer to enforce the data classification process in a meaning full way and finally introducing the real Data Loss Prevention solution at the top of the pyramid.


According to a Gartner CISO survey, Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is the biggest priority in last year. Data Loss Prevention (DLP) is the process and methodology to detect and prevent the unauthorized transmission or disclosure of sensitive information. DLP depends on a combination of people, processes, and technology as its strategic control foundation. These control elements work together to help ensure data is utilized in its intended manner.

CryptoGen can help reduce your risk of exposure. CryptoGen Professional Services’ Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Assessment identifies sensitive data that has been copied or is currently in transit from its original intended container. The assessment captures and identifies assets on the network, as well as items on hard drives. CryptoGen has two assessment services options:

Data on Fire Assessment: Focuses on data travelling through the network. CryptoGen consultants index incoming and outgoing traffic in real time to detect the presence of an information leak. Traffic entering or leaving the network is analysed against a series of information rules to determine where broken business processes may exist.

Data on Storage Assessment: Focuses on where sensitive data resides. CryptoGen consultants analyse system repositories, where critical data may have been wrongfully copied from its intended storage place. This may include laptops, desktops, file servers, NAS devices, intranet portals, wikis, blogs, and document management systems. Data stored on these repositories is indexed and violations to corporate policy are raised as incidents for investigation.

After the assessments, CryptoGen helps the customers to implement the solution as well.

With a rapid implementation with industry-leading software, CryptoGen can help you with:

  • Prevent data access when a device is lost or stolen
  • Protect sensitive data when stored, accessed, transmitted or shared
  • Monitor usage of sensitive data
  • Enforce policies at the end-user level
  • Block unauthorized and abusive behaviour
  • Guard data on removable storage devices
  • Encrypt e-mail and instant message transmissions


The frequency and sophistication of Denial of Service (DoS) and Distributed Denial of Service attacks (DDoS) on the Internet are rapidly increasing. Service providers are under mounting pressure to prevent, monitor and mitigate DoS/DDoS attacks directed toward their customers and their infrastructure.

The Internet is part of the critical national infrastructure but is unique in that it has no customary borders to safeguard it from attacks. Attacks that are seen every day on the Internet include direct attacks, remote controlled attacks, reflective attacks, worms, and viruses.

Specific attacks directed at a service provider’s infrastructure can be very damaging and cause wide spread outages.

The DDOS mitigation solutions from us have two stages. First we analyses the existing traffic patterns to benchmark the profiles and document the findings. With the special approval from the client, we demonstrate the attacks and finally implement the solutions to avoid collateral damage, reputation loss and maintain compliance.

Today’s IT organizations need a dynamic approach to defending the network—one that uses awareness and automation to provide visibility and context while constantly adapting to new threats, new vulnerabilities, and everyday network change. There are many clients invested on IPS solutions for compliance and audit requirements and finally the IPS is just a device in promiscuous mode or In-line without proper configuration.

CryptoGen assists the customers to perform a unique implementation in couple of stages to bring the investment in to a reality. The experienced engineers will assist the customers to implement IPS with:

  • NG IPS features (Real-time Contextual Awareness)
  • Advanced Threat Protection

We provide log management solutions to analyses and correlates every event that occurs across the organization every login, logoff, file access, database query, etc. to deliver accurate prioritization of security risks and compliance violations. With deep understanding of users and roles, network activities and flows, SIEM solutions uniquely able to understand who is on the network, what data they are seeing, which actions they are taking with that data, and how that affects business risk.

SIEM Capabilities

Data Aggregation: SIEM/LM (log management) solutions aggregate data from many sources, including network, security, servers, databases, applications, providing the ability to consolidate monitored data to help avoid missing crucial events.

Correlation: looks for common attributes, and links events together into meaningful bundles. This technology provides the ability to perform a variety of correlation techniques to integrate different sources, in order to turn data into useful information. Correlation is typically a function of the Security Event Management portion of a full SIEM soultion.

Alerting: the automated analysis of correlated events and production of alerts, to notify recipients of immediate issues. Alerting can be to a dashboard, or sent via third party channels such as email.

Dashboards: SIEM/LM tools take event data and turn it into informational charts to assist in seeing patterns, or identifying activity that is not forming a standard pattern.

Compliance: SIEM applications can be employed to automate the gathering of compliance data, producing reports that adapt to existing security, governance and auditing processes.

Retention: SIEM/SIM solutions employ long-term storage of historical data to facilitate correlation of data over time, and to provide the retention necessary for compliance requirements. Long term log data retention is critical in forensic investigation's as it is unlikely that discovery of a network breaches will be at the time of the breach occurring.


Gartner, the IT Analyst Company, defines six steps for vulnerability management programs.

Define Policy - Organizations must start out by determining what the desired security state for their environment is. This includes determining desired device and service configurations and access control rules for users accessing resources.

Baseline the Environment - Once a policy has been defined, the organization must assess the true security state of the environment and determine where instances of policy violations are occurring.

Prioritize Vulnerabilities - Instances of policy violations are Vulnerability (computing). These vulnerabilities are then prioritized using risk and effort-based criteria.

Shield - In the short term, the organization can take steps to minimize the damage that could be caused by the vulnerability by creating compensating controls.

Mitigate Vulnerabilities - Ultimately, the root causes of vulnerabilities must be addressed. This is often done via patching vulnerable services, changing vulnerable configurations or making application updates to remove vulnerable code.

Maintain and Monitor - Organizations' computing environments are dynamic and evolve over time, as do security policy requirements. In addition, additional security vulnerabilities are always being identified. For this reason, vulnerability management is an ongoing process rather than a point-in-time event.

Customers can purchase leading Vulnerability Management products through CryptoGen and we as a value addition provides world class implementation service as well. We proactively scans your environment for misconfigurations, vulnerabilities, and malware and provide guidance for mitigating risks. Finally CryptoGen provides assistance to integrate those solutions with your internal IPS or SIEM platforms as well.
