Security underpins everything we do.

Security Overview

The landscape in security has changed in recent years. IT systems are more complex, more cloud apps mean that users don't need to be on the corporate network to get work done. Breaches are now considered inevitable.

Security is our core business. When starting a project, we build in security first, the network then follows. As a Cisco Premier Partner we can offer state of the art solutions designed to keep you a step ahead of the latest cyber-attacks.

Secured Internet

By 2021, Gartner predicts the average company will have 25% of its corporate data traffic bypassing the network perimeter. When a user is off-network, they are more vulnerable and the organisation lacks visibility and protection. If you rely on perimeter security alone, you're not fully protected. These gaps open the door for malware, ransomware, and other attacks.

Cisco Umbrella is our preferred cloud security platform, providing the first line of defence against threats on the Internet wherever users go.
Umbrella delivers complete visibility into internet activity across all locations, devices, and users, and blocks threats before they ever reach your network or endpoints. Because Umbrella is delivered from the cloud, it can protect all of your users in minutes.

With Umbrella, you can stop phishing and malware infections earlier, identify already infected devices faster, and prevent data extrusion


Secured Endpoints

Is your organisation trying to reduce the risk of malware or ransomware?

Malware and ransomware email attacks are becoming more sophisticated each year, with even trained IT professionals falling victim to genuine-looking email attachments and weblinks. For untrained end-users, the situation is even more dire. Any machine that users check their email on is a high-risk endpoint, with two thirds of malware attacks installed via email attachments in 2016.

Thankfully, software solutions have been created to address the security issues of vulnerable endpoints. Our Cisco solution blocks malware trying to enter your network in real time.

Get global threat intelligence, advanced sandboxing, and real-time malware blocking to prevent breaches with Cisco Advanced Malware Protection (AMP). But because you can't rely on prevention alone, AMP also continuously analyses file activity across your extended network, so you can quickly detect, contain, and remove advanced malware.


Secured Firewall

We offer Cisco Next Generation Firewalls, offering advanced defences for advanced attacks.

The Cisco Firepower Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) is the industry's first fully integrated, threat-focused NGFW. It delivers comprehensive, unified policy management of firewall functions, application control, threat prevention, and advanced malware protection from the network to the endpoint.

Block more threats and quickly mitigate those that do breach your defences. The Cisco Firepower NGFW hardware and software options combine their proven network firewall with the industry's most effective next-generation IPS and advanced malware protection.
All so you can get more visibility, be more flexible, save more, and protect better.


Secured Cloud Storage

Protect your cloud users, data and apps with market leading Cisco Cloudlock.

Cisco Cloudlock is the cloud-native Cloud Access Security Broker and Cloud Cybersecurity Platform that helps accelerate use of the cloud.
Cloudlock's simple, open, and automated approach uses APIs to manage the risks in your cloud app ecosystem. With Cloudlock you can more easily combat data breaches while meeting compliance regulations.

User, data and app security is ensured as it discovers and controls cloud apps connected to your corporate environment.


Penetration Testing

A penetration test will help companies determine the weaknesses in their network, computer systems and applications.

With cyber attacks becoming the norm, it is more important than ever before to undertake regular vulnerability scans and penetration testing to identify vulnerabilities and ensure on a regular basis that the cyber controls are working.

At Calibre we work with our customers to build an accurate profile of what your primary business function is, where threats come from, and what the goal of your security assessment is.

We'll make sure you understand the results and have the knowledge to take any follow-up actions.


Web Application Testing

Our application security assessment services offer the confidence and expertise needed for secure software deployment across your organisation.

Our experienced team can assess your software application before purchase or deployment to ensure a high-quality, intensive security assessment is carried out. We have built a strong reputation in vulnerability discovery, exploit and web application testing services.


Secured Mobile Devices

Ransomware and malware are spreading across the Internet and increasingly targeting mobile devices. We can help your business become connected, collaborative and secure thanks to Cisco Security Connector. This gives visibility into network devices on iOS devices, blocking connections to malicious sites anywhere your users go.

According to Cisco, iOS is the most secure mobile platform available, but users are a network's weakest link. From compromised credentials to mistyped URLs, end users pose a security risk that cannot be ignored.

To solve the issue, Cisco Security Connector combines Cisco Umbrella and Clarity. Umbrella is a cloud-based secure internet gateway that implements DNS and IP layer enforcement, intelligent proxy inspection, callback blocking and other technologies, while Clarity offers insight into network traffic.

Wrapped together, the two products let network administrators gather traffic from all deployed devices, providing unparalleled visibility that can help in assessing and investigating incidents. Further, the app prevents connections to known phishing links or messages, as well as commonly mistyped URLs.

Importantly, the solution is largely transparent to end users, meaning the added protection will not impact employees' mobile experience.


Secured Email

Attackers rely primarily on email to distribute spam, malware, and other threats. To prevent breaches, you need a powerful email security solution.

Cisco Email Security is your defence against phishing, business email compromise, and ransomware. Get threat intelligence updates every three to five minutes through Cisco Talos for the most up-to-date protection. Cisco Advanced Malware Protection protects against stealthy malware in attachments, and industry-leading URL intelligence combats malicious links. Cisco Email Security also enhances Office 365 email security.

Protecting outgoing email is important too. Cisco Email Security has robust data loss prevention and content encryption capabilities to safeguard sensitive information. This helps you comply with government and industry regulations.
