Defensive Security

A strong cybersecurity defense is essential to protecting your organization’s assets from exploitation and data exfiltration through cyber-attacks. An effective defense strategy starts with a minimum of layered Defense in Depth (DiD) and Zero Trust, with the potential to further increase your organization’s security maturity.

We strengthen your protection through an agile and proactive defense approach, focusing on prevention, deterrence, detection, response, and continuous improvement. We look at security as one holistic process; continuously hardening defenses to reduce attack surface and blast radius, while strengthening the measures and reducing blind spots with adversarial services. Whether you need to secure your cloud assets, implement Agile security testing that integrates into a CI/CD pipeline, or a modern MDR system with AI/ML automation—our expertise in defensive security can help you achieve success without slowing down business operations.

Our Defensive Capabilities & Services



Hybrid Cloud Security 


Cloud services and applications provide many advantages, but also increase cybersecurity attack surfaces by giving cyber criminals greater opportunities to probe infrastructure for weaknesses and points of entry. It’s essential for your defenses to prevent unauthorized access, protect against misconfigurations, secure interfaces and APIs.  

Our Safe Cloud approach covers: Identity Access Management (IAM), data protection (both security and privacy), configuration management, threat protection and vulnerability management, monitoring, infrastructure protection, and governance, risk and compliance, and application security. We ensure digital identities have access to the appropriate resources at the right time for the right reasons through a Zero Trust environment. Safe Cloud identifies what cloud data is sharable and who has authorized access and establishes and retains consistent cloud resource settings throughout the asset lifecycle. It provides data segregation for systems and resources to reduce the blast radius of an attack. We combine the latest digital technologies and GRC domain experience to enable your business to identify, mitigate, and report on operational, financial, compliance, and IT risks.



Application Security 


Whether it's customer facing products or internal employee applications, vulnerabilities are gateways for attackers to exploit your system. Reducing exposure and limiting the risks amplified by applications is essential. The key is to build application security correctly and train your staff in the best processes. Security must be incorporated through the entire Software Development Lifecycle (SDLC) to limit the discovery of security vulnerabilities after a release goes to market. 

We assist your organization with developing and implementing an application security program, in anticipation of risk mitigation throughout the SDLC. This encompasses internal risks for developing the project, forecasting of outside risks (i.e., data privacy, cybersecurity), required compliance with both regulatory and internal policy and procedure, and using the best security practices. Our approach focuses on agile working methods, and rapidly deploying products with security at the forefront, enabling efficiency gains and reducing overhead costs.


Managed Detection and Response 


CISO and Security Operations Center (SOC) are confronted with many challenges. Traditional threat investigation and SIEM tools have a high total cost of ownership, heavy upfront costs and can send hundreds of meaningless alerts a day that are false-positive distractions. These tools do not provide adequate visibility to detect advanced persistent threats.

Our cloud-based Managed Detection and Response (MDR) service provides proactive threat detection, intelligence-driven threat hunting, and automated response. MDR offers 24x7 monitoring, detection, and response to threats in real-time. Using Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) aided event correlation, prioritization and investigation, it automatically responds to alerts and can stop a breach before it wreaks havoc on your digital environment. By analyzing previous and live attacks with ML-based capabilities, sophisticated threats that exploit zero-day vulnerabilities can be identified and grant a 360-degree visibility in near real time. Feeds of threat intelligence arrive from an extensive and growing list of partners, ensuring it’s always up to date on the latest threats. It features our own security research augmentation and is backed by highly skilled security analysts, forensic experts, and incident responders. Most importantly, it is customized based on your requirements, size, and volume of security data. 


Security at Agile Speed 

Innovation occurs at great speed thanks to Agile software development and frequent, incremental release process. Despite this, most security measures are still built around an annual penetration test that does not keep pace with Agile. Frequent code changes and releases can quickly render your threat modeling obsolete and, inevitably, new security vulnerabilities are introduced.

Our Agile security testing approach matches Agile speed with the necessary security testing. Powered by EPAM’s unique Security Center, our Agile Security Center experts help you remain secure and competitive, while supporting your software and network security throughout the SDLC. Designed with agility, coordination, security, and transparency throughout the development process, it covers security on a continuous basis with the exact level of incremental penetration testing necessary to cover application and infrastructure changes. Agile Security Center matches security practices and controls, all without bogging down development by breaking the security processes into small units of work. This ensures security and compliance vulnerabilities are regularly uncovered, continuous threat modeling is applied, and targeted, penetration testing is conducted only when needed to minimize risk.
