Protective Monitoring

Our Hytec Managed Security Service includes protective monitoring

One of the best first steps in effectively monitoring and managing security events is to collect and correlate logs from across systems, applications and network devices. Within these logs lies an audit trail of who has done what, where, when and why. However, monitoring events from disparate systems is a huge challenge for any local authority. These logs contain an enormous amount of information and identifying anomalies can be difficult.

The Hytec Managed Security Service takes the guesswork out of security event management by analysing and correlating security events across all systems. We alert you to the most pressing events. We break out events into five categories that help you to understand security events, intent and severity, based on how they are interacting with your environment.

The Hytec Managed Security service allows you to obtain real improvements in IT security.This service meets the log retention requirements of PSN, the current Data Protection Act and GDPR from May 2018. Information from various feeds will be collated and retained for three months on-line and for one year near line. This is compliant with PSN and GDPR requirements.
