Good network security stems from its architecture. Your network architecture must minimize the risk of attacks. It must help your system contain and recover from a successful attack. To help you meet these ends, our specialists inspect your network architecture and improve it. And more importantly, they review the architecture to make sure it serves your business goals.
The ITFS Group helps you in developing an architecture that supports not just your immediate goals, but also the overall business strategy.
IT System provided security can be defined as the IT system ability to protect confidentiality and integrity of processed data, provide system and data availability and accountability for processed transactions, and ensure that the system will continue to perform to its design goals.
The ITFS Group focuses on network architecture helping in preventing many attacks from occurring and minimizing the impact of attacks whose occurrence cannot be prevented containing their threat.
Using an IT security architecture, the ITFS Group embeds security into networks, computers, middleware, and applications that comprise the IT infrastructure while planning, designing, and deploying them. The ITFS Group integrates an IT security architecture with the border IT plan to reduce security risk in accordance with the risk analysis and security policies, focusing on reducing security risks and enforcing policy through the design and configuration of firewalls, routers, and other network equipment.
The ITFS Group will assist you in designing architecture with two goals. The first is to prevent many attacks from occurring. The second, when such an attack does occur, it minimizes its impact and contains the threat to a selected group of systems.
A good solution is the right one for your organization only if it fits your system architecture. The ITFS Group will give you the right architecture for your business and security goals and will make it possible for you to take advantage of the best possible solutions
Security risk assessments are an important tool businesses can use to ensure they are not losing money to theft or fraud.
Securing Your Business
Every day, many businesses expose themselves to loss, because they have not focused on their security. Security risk assessments show you what measures you can take to help cut that loss. These security evaluations give you the crime statistics for your area, and the probability that your business will be a victim. Lighting evaluations are often conducted to help determine if your facility is lit in the most efficient manner for preventing crime. Security risk assessments also determine if your current alarm and motion detection system is as effective as it should be. An alarm system that is not in accordance with industry standards might fail to perform when it is needed most.
An Important Part of Your Budget
Since many businesses are operating with limited resources, they try to cut expenses wherever possible. However, it is important not to think of security as just another expense. Instead, you should think of security costs as a means to save your company from loss and increase your profits. For many small businesses, a major security setback could mean they will shut down. It is vital for owners to remember that security risk assessments are just as important as your sales and marketing costs. Once you realize this, your business might just stop spinning its wheels in one place.

The ITFS Group performs Penetration Testing for its customers.
Our team is highly experienced and trained in the latest tools and techniques used by individuals and organizations that commonly compromise networks and the systems within to obtain access to confidential data and critical resources. The results of every Penetration Test presented by the ITFS Group include complete details on the systems and network identified exploitation results, and both tactical and strategic recommendations. The penetration tests attempt to exploit vulnerabilities and weaknesses throughout the environment, attempting to penetrate both at the network level and key applications. The goal of penetration testing is to determine whether unauthorized access to key systems and files can be achieved.
The ITFS Group employs all these penetration-testing techniques (as well as others) in the methodology, such as social engineering and the exploitation of exposed vulnerabilities, access controls on key systems and files, web-facing applications, custom applications, and wireless connections.
There are several methodologies that the ITFS Group uses for penetration testing. The first decision that needs to be made is how much knowledge the tester has of the system being tested. Having no prior knowledge is known as "black box testing", where we first identify the location of the systems before attempting any exploits. Having explicit knowledge is known as "white box testing".
"Black box testing" simulates an attack from someone who is unfamiliar with the system.
"White box testing" simulates what might happen during an "inside job" or after a "leak" of sensitive information, where the attacker has access to source code, network layouts, and possibly even some passwords.
The services offered by the ITFS Group span a wide range, from a simple scan of the organization IP Address space for open ports and identification banners to a full audit of source code for an application.
