Our Services


Maintaining clear cybersecurity visibility is vital for preventing cyber hacks, phishing, and ransomware threats that could harm your company. A roadmap for enhancing cybersecurity helps establish a structured, effective security solution, ensuring organizational safety and confidentiality.

Utilising the industry’s leading vulnerability scanner, we conduct either authenticated or un-authenticated scans on all internal and external IP addresses to find over 75 000 known CVE’s (Common Vulnerabilities and Exposures).

A vulnerability score for each finding gets allocated to easily prioritise the most critical vulnerabilities that enables them to be addressed in order of urgency. A detailed description and possible resolution explanation of each vulnerability is provided with each scan, as well as an export of each report in PDF, CSV and HTML format. Included with each scan is a consultation and discussion session with our skilled security professionals on the findings, where questions or recommendations can be raised.

Penetration Testing is a process in which we attempt to enumerate and exploit vulnerabilities in an organisation’s environment. This is done by mimicking the steps that a malicious actor would have taken in an attempt to exploit your systems. Any vulnerabilities found during this process are then documented and reported upon, with a detailed description which includes a step-by-step guide to exploit the vulnerability; a rating of the vulnerability and possible resolution plan.

Regulatory Compliancy is a major drive toward implementing a companywide ICT (Information and Communication Technologies) framework or striving towards meeting an industry standard. Frameworks like CIS (Centre for Internet Security) and NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) can accelerate your cyber maturity and build a resilient security position, all whilst gaining and maintaining compliancy.

We can assist with assessing your environment according to industry-accepted frameworks and standards, as well as assisting with compliance regarding policies, processes and controls.


Implementation of security controls according to best practice, as well as ensuring that your specific security and compliance regulations are met, is a critical aspect of Cybersecurity. Security control misconfiguration is one of the most common vulnerabilities that can render your investment as underperforming or even completely irrelevant.

Perimeter security plays a large role in securing your intellectual property from external threats. However utilising your firewall investment to the fullest begins with correct firewall implementation. Firewalls not only provide Anti-Malware, URL filtering and IPS (Intrusion Prevention Systems) solutions for your WAN (Wide Area Network) facing entities but can also segregate your network to minimise the lateral movement of intruders.

Cyber Insight provides expertise in the implementation of parameter and segmentation firewall solutions, through consulting services on firewall implementations and best practice deployments of all vendors. We provide optimisation, implementation, and managed solutions for all your firewall requirements.

Given that virtually everyone with internet access uses email platforms and services, and considering that most cyberattacks exploit this avenue as a security vulnerability, it’s highly advisable to establish robust email security solutions. Employing a stringent Secure Email Gateway implementation helps prevent Malware, Spam, and malicious URL/IP addresses from infiltrating user mailboxes.

Enhanced reporting and forensics offer visibility into TLS (Transport Layer Security) encryption and the implementation of DLP (Data Loss Prevention) on emails. These features represent just a subset of what a proper Email Gate Solution encompasses.

At Cyber Insight, we grasp your email security needs and deliver tailored Secure Email Gateway implementation and Management solutions that align with your requirements. Whether you seek guidance through the implementation or optimization phase, or you prefer a security provider to manage the solution, we’ve got you covered.

Despite robust email security measures, the possibility of phishing emails reaching end users remains. The end user serves as the final defense line, necessitating the ability to spot and report suspicious emails and endpoint threats.

We offer guidance and training to bolster your internal response and user behavior concerning phishing emails. This insight informs effective processes and policies, paving the way for implementing solutions that reinforce your organization’s journey towards cyber resilience.

Un-patched systems are the leading cause of cyber security vulnerabilities and can lead to system exploitation. Exploited systems can be used for data exfiltration, lateral movement, back doors, and many other covert operations which can put your company at undue risk.

We provide expertise into the implementation of a patch management solution to improve visibility into your patch state and reduce your vulnerability footprint.

Web Application Firewalls (WAF) are dedicated devices for blocking known web application vulnerabilities such as Cross Site Scripting (XSS), Structured Query Language (SQL) Injections, cookie poisoning as well as many other Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) top 10 attacks.

This consolidated approach addresses the evolving demands of modern networking and security, fostering efficiency and coherence within the ever-changing digital landscape.


Security controls are only as good as the alert and monitoring systems set up alongside them. After all controls are in place, monitoring solutions need to be in place to monitor the performance and logs of the controls and behaviour of suspicious actors within the environment.

Every device generates logs that contain valuable information ripe for analysis. In the aftermath of a security breach or attack, these logs become invaluable, offering insights into the attack’s origin and the vulnerable points of entry. However, without a well-structured Log Aggregation strategy, logs might be fragmented across devices or, worse, not captured at all, resulting in a lack of event tracking within your environment.

This is where a robust Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution steps in. SIEM provides a centralized platform for managing, storing, and analyzing logs, allowing you to identify and correlate threats seamlessly across your environment. This capability not only aids in Threat Hunting but also proves crucial for post-attack forensics.

At Cyber Insight, our expertise extends to SIEM implementation and management, minimizing manual efforts and optimizing your investment returns. With our services, you can rest assured that your logs are securely stored and meticulously maintained in a format that supports comprehensive reporting. This offers the assurance that your organization’s security stance remains robust and vigilant.

By using artificial intelligence to monitor user and entity behaviours, you can fend off potential data loss from internal threats such as disgruntled employees, or external vectors by means of techniques such as privilege escalation. By combining alerting with detection, an advanced security and forensic platform can be created and maintained with high accuracy rates on detecting anomalies within your environment.

Cyber Insight specialises in the implementation of UEBA (User and Entity Behaviour Analytics) solutions across your server and endpoint environment to track user behavioural anomalies. Whether you want a solution created, or a fully managed service, we can cater for and customise solutions to suit your requirements.

Insider Threats such as disgruntled employees or malicious internal actors can cause the loss or damage of sensitive data within your organisation without managers or owners being aware for months, or even years. Some Insider Threats are unknowingly creating harm by accidentally implementing changes or acting maliciously without the awareness that their actions could lead to loss of integrity or accessibility.

Cyber Insight can assist with implementing a complete Insider Threat management solution to monitor your account and data behaviour, as well as provide audit reports on all internal activities. Alerts provide triggers on events based on pre-defined actions to mitigate activities in your environment which could be a threat.
