During this 20 plus year relationship we have asked LBMC to create, implement and support more business-critical applications that I can count.

Firewall Management

What is a firewall? At the root, a firewall is your first line of defense in network security and monitors incoming and outgoing network traffic. This is the core component in your business security.

Whether you are a large corporation or a small business, the barrage of attacks against your systems and users is constant. For this reason, it is critical that you have a strong firewall solution that includes the latest threat protection using security best practices.

LBMC Technology Solutions partners with industry leaders to offer clients best-in-class firewall products. We use a wide variety of network security services, ranging from standard IPS, URL filtering, Gateway AV, application control, and anti-spam, to services for combating advanced threats such as file sandboxing, data loss prevention, ransomware protection and more.

Benefits of Firewall Management

  • Firewall configuration to meet industry security best practices
  • Threat monitoring
  • Threat and user activity reporting
  • Firewall software updates to protect against the latest threats

Mobile Device Management

Mobile devices are a way of life for most businesses. Keeping these mobile devices secure is a huge challenge for many organizations.

Mobile device ecosystems can be very diverse, and Intune can securely manage iOS, Windows, Android and MacOS devices from a solitary, unified mobile solution. Provide your users what they need to do their best work wherever they are, on whichever device they choose.

Benefits of Mobile Device Management

  • Protect your sensitive data regardless of device enrollment
  • Support mobile devices of any kind
  • Variety of management scenarios available

Multi-factor Authentication

The old days of having a good, strong password are gone. And, let’s face it – most people never really had a good password; and if they did, it was taped to their monitor. That is where multi-factor authentication (MFA) comes in. It combines something you know (i.e. your password) with something you have (i.e. code from your mobile phone) to deliver a much more secure authentication method.

Since everyone now carries a mobile phone with them, you no longer require expensive token cards or key fobs to implement MFA. A company can send a temporary code to your mobile phone via text or call to complete the authentication process. Even if someone knows your password, they will not have the code, which only lasts for seconds. LBMC Technology Solutions can assist your business with securing your authentication process with an MFA solution.

Benefits of Multi-Factor Authentication

  • Secure Networks
  • Token cards and key fobs no longer required

Antivirus & Anti-Malware

The threat of viruses, malware and other cyber terrorism acts have sadly become a part of our daily lives. Computer viruses were once simple and limited…now we are faced with advanced malware threats, phishing scams, key loggers, ransomware and more. These virtual threats will attack you through every electronic method possible; infected bogus package delivery messages, the infamous rich Nigerian prince, an email attachment that attempts to encrypt every file in your organization, accidentally visiting an infected website – the perils are virtually everywhere.

Your organization needs a vigilant protection system. LBMC Technology Solutions provides a layered approach to addressing this ever-present threat. Our antivirus and anti-malware solutions are configured to provide highest levels of protection, while having minimal impact on system performances.

Benefits of Antivirus and Anti-malware

  • Safeguard against hackers, viruses, malware and leaks
  • Peace of mind knowing your technology infrastructure is secure
  • Robust protection and around-the-clock monitoring
  • Scalable services to meet your organizations budget and evolving risk profile

Intrusion Prevention

Just as we protect our homes and personal belongings from intrusion, the same diligence must be made for our organizations’ computer networks. Intrusion prevention is the preemptive measure taken to identify potential threats and respond to them immediately.

At LBMC Technology Solutions, we take a two-part approach to Intrusion Prevention: managed intrusion prevention, and managed intrusion protection.

We first identify hostile activity in real time and take immediate action to block and thwart undesirable network traffic; combine this with our 24/7 monitoring to immediately detect and report unauthorized access attempts and suspicious activities. Each alert includes a thorough analysis and specific steps to take to eliminate the threat.

Benefits of Intrusion Prevention

  • Safeguard against hackers, viruses, malware and leaks
  • Peace of mind knowing your technology infrastructure is secure
  • Robust protection and around-the-clock monitoring
  • Scalable services to meet your organizations budget and evolving risk profile

Social Engineering

Threat actors are always thinking of new ways to target individuals and businesses, trying to acquire personal information, login credentials, or other sensitive information. One of the most common trends today is social engineering. Social engineering is pretending to be someone else to fool a person into revealing sensitive information, passwords, or other information that compromises a target system’s security. Do not become a victim of social engineering by unwittingly giving out information to an unknown person. A skilled social engineer will convince you that a). they are someone they are not and b). there is no harm in giving them the information they are requesting or entering information on malicious websites that appear to be genuine.

Always remember, that social engineering can happen through multiple sources such as email, text messages, and telephone calls. Take these steps to help ensure that you don’t become a victim: Authenticate, Authorize, Make A Phone Call Back, Don’t Be Pressured, Be Alert, Be Polite but Firm, and Report. With the rising amount of ransomware attacks and phishing messages, cyber security has never been more important than it is today.

Phishing Indicators Example

Phishing emails are becoming more sophisticated and difficult to distinguish from legitimate emails. By impersonating a reputable company’s communications (with pretexting attacks), these emails tend to use clever and compelling language, such as an urgent need for you to update your information or communicate with you for your security. To spot a phishing email, look for a combination of red flags. In this example, notice:

1. Non-Wells Fargo email address: The email address of the sender does not include the wellsfargo.com domain name, instead using something like “comcast.net”: WellsOnlineBank2@comcast.net.

2. Urgent call to action: The email includes an urgent request in the subject line and message copy, such as “for your protection and for security reasons.” Phishing emails may also contain extra spacing or unusual punctuation in addition to other red flags.

3. Suspicious URL: The email contains a link to a non-Wells Fargo URL, which could be a fraudulent website. If you’re using a laptop or desktop computer, you can check a link’s URL by hovering over it with your cursor, and the URL will show in your browser window.

 

 

 

 

 

Example of Phishing Email

Smishing

How to recognize smishing.

Smishing attacks (SMS Phishing) use similar techniques as phishing emails: a sense of urgency to secure your account or verify your identity, using words like “locked,” “deactivated”, or“ for your protection” to describe your account status. These smishing attacks may prompt you to call a phone number, click on a link, or respond directly with personal or account information. To spot a smishing text, look for a combination of red flags. In this example, notice:

1.Suspicious sender: The text was sent by an unknown phone number, instead of one of Wells Fargo’s official short codes: 93557, 93733, 93729, or 54687.

2. Unusual text treatments: The text message contains a combination of unusual text treatments, including all caps, arrows, ID numbers, and an exclamation point.

3. Unprompted identity request: The request to verify the recipient’s identity was unprompted. Wells Fargo will request to verify your identity via access code only when prompted by an action that you have initiated, such as signing on to online banking or sending money.
