Multi-level Security Strategy
As the workforce becomes further separated from the corporate network, adding layers of security to endpoints to ensure they are operating most securely. We turn to RMM solutions to have visibility to user devices. Our Multi-level defense is about adding layers of security to endpoints to ensure they are operating most securely.
Our stack security typically would look like this:
We use it to monitor and enforce security policies, patching not only the Operating System but third-party applications to ensure antivirus is installed, up to date, by actively scanning and adding a second “pair of eyes.” Using the built-in RMM Ransomware Detection to detect and stop ransomware infections.
RMM to automatically and silently deploy security tools like antivirus or web filtering agents such as Cisco Umbrella to endpoints as they are added to sites in RMM to ensure there are no unprotected devices in the environment. Often we use components to randomize local admin passwords, disable guest accounts and automatically review and limit how many accounts have local admin rights on devices. Our dashboards in RMM can be used to see a quick overall view of the security state of the managed devices and is the window into the current security status of devices under management.
Our RMM is very good and, the goal is not only to alert but also to attempt the “first fix” so security issues can be automatically resolved quickly.
RMM can run components in response to alerts. In its simplest form, this could be to run a full AV scan if the installed AV cannot automatically quarantine malware right through to automatically isolate machines from the local network if ransomware is detected.
Automated responses are where we can start enforcing security policies, take care of security-related issues, and installing patches to operating systems and 3rd party applications.
