If a Hacker is in the System

Hackers are constantly probing IP addresses to figure out which ones have vulnerabilities. But, there are ways to protect your business from hackers.

Click the links below to learn more about what vulnerabilities your business might have, and how the IT experts at DataHive can protect your business from potential hackers.

Hackers will typically try to erase or destroy evidence contained in system or network access logs to protect themselves and hide their activities from being detected.

Understanding network traffic patterns and recording details of breaches is crucial in cleaning up, hardening, and preparing for potential future attacks.

Why use DataHive for remote logging and analysis?

By sending your network and server logs to DataHive’s remote logging service for analysis, you protect your vital data from tampering, during an attack. The information is stored in our secure data centre. We utilize encryption to ensure no one can tamper with your data as it’s being transmitted to DataHive.

Hackers scan, probe, hammer and poke IP addresses constantly by using automated tools that do the work for them 24/7/365. These tools discover vulnerabilities such as weak encryption, remote execution vulnerabilities, and software with known security flaws. You will never know what vulnerabilities would be hackers could find, until it’s too late.

DataHive’s automated vulnerability scans look for those same vulnerabilities and bring them to your attention via periodic reports.

How DataHive protects you and your business

DataHive protects your IT infrastructure by automatically scanning your IP addresses periodically for vulnerabilities, saving you from potential hackers. We share the report with you, allowing you the opportunity to fix those vulnerabilities before hackers discover them.

We also walk through the report with you to check for “false positives”, a technical term which means that something looks like an issue but isn’t. We assist you in figuring out which ones are false positives, and which issues are real vulnerabilities.

The scans we use include more than 70,000 vulnerability tests, including:

  • Out of date software
  • Configuration errors
  • Latest vulnerabilities (including CVE)
  • Dangerous open ports
  • Weak encryption (SSL/TLS/SSH)
