At Metron Security, we understand that safeguarding your data extends beyond intrusion prevention. That's why we implement a comprehensive backup and recovery strategy to ensure your information remains secure and accessible, even in the face of unforeseen events.

Regular Backups:

  • We perform frequent backups of your and our business data at regular intervals, ensuring critical information isn't lost due to hardware failures, software malfunctions, or even cyberattacks.

Geographically Dispersed Storage:

  • We don't store all our eggs in one basket. Your backups are securely stored in a distinct cloud region, geographically separate from our primary data center. This geographically dispersed storage strategy minimizes the risk of data loss due to regional disasters or outages, providing an additional layer of redundancy.

Tested and Ready Recovery:

  • We don't just create backups; we ensure they're functional and recoverable. We conduct regular disaster recovery drills and test restores to verify the integrity of our backups and the efficiency of our restoration process. This ensures we can swiftly recover your data and minimize downtime in case of any emergency.


Storage Encryption

We go beyond industry standards to ensure its protection, even in the event of unfortunate circumstances. Here's how we achieve this:

Full-Disk Encryption for All Devices:

We understand the risks associated with stolen or lost devices. That's why we implement full-disk encryption as standard practice on all organizational devices. This means every device, from laptops to servers, utilizes advanced encryption algorithms to scramble data stored on its hard drive. Even if a device falls into the wrong hands, the data remains unreadable, safeguarding your sensitive information.

Cloud Volumes for Customer Data:

We recognize the growing trend towards cloud storage and leverage its benefits while prioritizing security. We utilize secure cloud volumes specifically designed for data encryption and access control. This ensures your data resides in a highly secure environment, protected by robust security measures beyond our infrastructure. By combining full-disk encryption and secure cloud storage with additional security measures, Metron Security creates a multi-layered defense for your data. We offer peace of mind knowing that your information is protected even in unforeseen situations, allowing you to focus on your business goals with confidence.


Access Reviews

We understand the critical role of human security, and that's why we implement a rigorous access control framework with a key focus on regular employee privilege reviews.

We regularly review employee privileges to ensure they only have access to the data they need for their specific role. This approach, combined with the principle of least privilege and continuous monitoring, minimizes the risk of unauthorized access and keeps your data secure.


Strengthened Structures

At Metron Security, safeguarding your data extends beyond traditional security measures. We implement a multi-layered approach to protect your information, starting with the very foundation of our applications. Here's how we fortify our application servers:

Strengthened Builds:

Our application servers utilize "hardened builds", meaning they are stripped down to essential components, removing unnecessary software and functionalities that could introduce vulnerabilities. This minimizes the attack surface and reduces potential entry points for malicious actors.

Granular Access Control:

We implement strict access control for application and deployment accounts. These accounts only have access to the resources they need to perform their designated tasks, preventing unauthorized exploration of the operating system or network.

Root Rights Restricted:

We operate with the principle of least privilege, meaning software is never executed with root rights unless necessary and under strict supervision. This minimizes potential damage if a vulnerability is exploited, as attackers wouldn't have access to the entire system's privileges. These combined measures create a robust defense system for our application servers, minimizing the risk of data breaches and unauthorized access.


Secure Coding

We believe secure applications are the foundation of robust data protection, and that's why we build security into everything we do. Here's how:

Rigorous Secure Coding Practices:

Our developers follow industry-leading secure coding standards, employing best practices that inherently minimize vulnerabilities and reduce the risk of exploits. This ensures that every line of code is written with security in mind, creating a strong foundation for data protection.

Multi-Pronged Security Checks:

We believe in a layered approach to security. Every piece of code undergoes exhaustive manual reviews by experienced security professionals who have a keen eye for identifying potential weaknesses. But it doesn't stop there. We also utilize advanced automated scanning tools that meticulously analyze code for even the most obscure vulnerabilities.


Two-factor Authentication

Metron Security takes a proactive approach to safeguarding your data, understanding the ever-present threat of cyberattacks. One key layer of defense we employ is two-factor authentication (2FA) for all corporate accounts. This added security significantly hinders various attack methods, including:

Phishing Emails: With 2FA in place, even if a clever phishing attempt tricks you into entering your password, attackers are still blocked from accessing your account. The additional authentication step, often a code sent to your phone or generated by an app, acts as an impassable barrier for unauthorized entry.

Credential Stuffing: Criminals often collect login credentials from data breaches and attempt to use them on different platforms. However, 2FA requires more than just a stolen password. Even if your credentials are compromised elsewhere, attackers remain locked out without the additional authentication factor, significantly reducing the risk of unauthorized access.

Account Takeover: Unsecured accounts can be vulnerable to attackers gaining access. With 2FA in place, even if they manage to steal your password, they're still unable to fully compromise your account. This crucial second authentication step buys us precious time to detect and respond to the attempted breach, minimizing potential damage and protecting your sensitive information.


Anti-virus and Anti-malware

Beyond basic firewalls, we implement a comprehensive endpoint protection solution that includes industry-leading anti-virus and anti-malware capabilities.. This ensures your information remains secure, even against evolving threats.

Industry-Leading Solutions:

We leverage industry-leading anti-virus and anti-malware technologies recognized for their effectiveness in detecting and blocking both known and emerging threats, acting as a vigilant sentry, and continuously scanning your systems for suspicious activity. Its advanced detection methods go beyond simple signatures, employing behavioral analysis to identify and block even unknown malware before it can harm your systems.

Proactive Threat Detection:

Our solutions don't stop at signature-based detection. They utilize advanced behavioral analysis to proactively identify and block suspicious activities, even from unfamiliar malware.

Real-Time Protection:

We adopt a "better safe than sorry" approach. Our systems provide real-time protection, constantly monitoring your endpoints for potential threats and automatically taking action to quarantine or remove them before they can cause harm.

Continuous Updates and Monitoring:

The cyber threat landscape is constantly evolving, and so is our defense. We ensure our anti-virus and anti-malware solutions remain effective against the latest threats through regular updates. Additionally, our security team continuously monitors system activity and threat intelligence to identify and address emerging vulnerabilities.


Least Privilege

Beyond firewalls and encryption, we firmly believe in the principle of least privilege, ensuring that every employee has access only to the specific information and systems they need to perform their job duties. This philosophy, akin to issuing personalized keys to specific vault compartments, ensures minimal vulnerabilities and maximizes data security.

Why Least Privilege Matters:

Reduced Attack Surface: By granting minimal access, we significantly shrink the potential attack surface. Even if a breach occurs, the damage is minimized as unauthorized users wouldn't have access to sensitive data beyond their immediate needs.

Enhanced Data Security: Limiting access significantly reduces the risk of both accidental and malicious data leaks. Each user only handles the data relevant to their tasks, minimizing exposure and potential compromises.

Improved Accountability: With granular access control, each user's activity is easily traceable, fostering a culture of accountability and responsibility for data protection. Everyone understands their limitations and the importance of handling information diligently.
