CyberSecurity

3RT Networks takes a layered approach to cyber security. A proper risk management and compliance plan incorporates a framework of multiple solutions to effectively protect your business or organization from unauthorized access to data and computerized resources. 3RT Networks solutions incorporate artificial intelligence and machine learning to analyze data to predict and contain threats before they compromise your infrastructure.

Next-Generation Firewalls

With the proliferation of modern applications and mixed-use networks, host and port based security is no longer sufficient. Defending networks against increasingly sophisticated threats requires industry-leading intelligence and consistent protections everywhere. Improve your security posture today with Cisco and Meraki firewalls. Cisco and Meraki firewalls set the foundation for integrating powerful threat prevention capabilities into your existing network infrastructure, making the network a logical extension of your firewall solution.

Cisco and Meraki firewalls offer the latest in remote access VPN, leveraging the well established and secure AnyConnect Secure Mobility Client. Network based antimalware utilizing cloud security and machine learning are also included. Snort, the de facto standard in Intrusion Detection and Prevention, is an integral piece of the Cisco and Meraki firewalls as well.

Web Security

Malware and bad actors are working harder and harder every day to stay covert and one step ahead of enterprise security solutions and professionals; this is where Cisco Umbrella and Umbrella SIG (Secure Internet Gateway) rise to the challenge. Utilizing DNS layer protection and leveraging insights from Cisco Talos, one of the world’s largest commercial threat intelligence teams with more than 300 researchers, 

Umbrella uncovers and blocks a broad spectrum of malicious domains, IPs, URLs, and files that are being used in attacks. Umbrella also feeds huge volumes of global Internet activity into a combination of statistical and machine learning models to identify new attacks being staged on the Internet. Umbrella offers broad and reliable security coverage across all ports and protocols, security protection on and off your network, rapid deployment and flexible enforcement levels, and a single dashboard for efficient management.

Built into the foundation of the Internet, Umbrella processes 200 billion Internet requests for more than 20,000 businesses every day. By enforcing security at the DNS and IP layers, Umbrella blocks requests to malware, ransomware, phishing, and botnets before a connection is even established — before they reach your network or endpoints. The secure web gateway logs and inspects all web traffic for greater transparency, control, and protection. The cloud-delivered firewall helps to log and block traffic using IP, port, and protocol rules for consistent enforcement throughout your environment.

Cloud Protection
Email Cybersecurity - Phishing

Email Security

When a malicious actor wants to get into your company’s environment, many don’t bother with the hassle of getting around a firewall or exploiting a website when they can trick someone into clicking on a bad link or opening a malicious document. Ransomware, credential phishing, and more can be delivered directly to your users when email security fails. Thankfully, Cisco and Microsoft each have their own solutions to help protect your users.

Cisco’s Email Security includes protection from malware, phishing links, and more! With included support for DLP; on-prem, hybrid and cloud email solutions; and backed by TALOS; Cisco’s Email Security is more than just a simple scan. When Cisco’s Email Security is integrated with existing Cisco Security products, administrators can find and resolve security events even faster with Cisco Threat Response.


Microsoft’s solutions include Exchange Online Protection and Advanced Threat Protection. EOP is included with Office 365 Exchange Online licensing. ATP is an additional license which expands on Microsoft’s already proven EOP by adding features similar to Cisco’s Email Security including: enhanced anti-phishing, attack simulations, and automated investigation.

Access Control & Network Security

With the ever-increasing complexity of controlling network access and ensuring network security, Cisco Identity Services Engine (ISE) is there to help streamline security policy and identity management while reducing operating costs. ISE allows you to provide highly secure network access to users and devices. It helps you gain visibility into what is happening in your network, such as who is connected, which applications are installed and running, and much more. It also shares vital contextual data, such as user and device identities, threats, and vulnerabilities with integrated solutions from Cisco technology partners, so you can identify, contain, and remediate threats faster.

With ISE, IT administrators define policies that differentiates guests from registered users and devices in one central hub. Regardless of their location, users and endpoints are allowed access based on role and policy. Cisco TrustSec Security Group Tags (SGT) allow organizations to base access control on business rules and not IP addresses or network hierarchy. ISE is able to deliver further endpoint security using endpoint posture assessments. Posture assessments provide the ability to create powerful policies that include, but are not limited to, checks for the latest OS patch, antivirus and antispyware packages with current definition file variables (version, date, etc.), antimalware packages, registry settings (key, value, etc.), patch management, disk encryption, mobile PIN-lock, rooted or jailbroken status, application presence, and USB-attached media.

Endpoint Security

As networks become more complex, devices become more mobile, and more companies allow BYOD, the attack surface for your company resources grows. A network that could be protected by a firewall and basic anti-virus in the past is no longer enough to stop malicious actors. Not only is the edge of your network becoming less defined, but hackers have become increasingly hard to detect with staged payloads, file-less malware, and complex C2 domains. To protect your endpoints and help defend your network, 3RT offers 2 tiers of Endpoint Security: Cisco’s Advance Malware Protection (AMP) and AVG’s Avast.

AMP is backed by Cisco and TALOS and as the name implies, is much more than your standard anti-virus. Traditional anti-virus relies on malware definitions being constantly updated and has trouble detecting malware that hasn’t been seen before. AMP uses machine learning and sandboxing to track what processes are doing and intelligently detects if malicious activity is occurring. With TALOS intelligence in the background, AMP can tell if an application has been seen before and automatically run the application in a sandbox that simulates real human users to discover malicious intent. If detected, AMP can retroactively block applications and revert their actions.


Avast is 3RT’s basic offering and more closely resembles traditional anti-virus with easier management for devices off network. With easy deployment and management, Avast can be quickly deployed to help secure your devices.

Multi-factor Authentication

Multi-factor authentication is an authentication method in which a computer user is granted access only after successfully presenting two or more pieces of evidence (or factors) to an authentication mechanism: knowledge (something the user and only the user knows), possession (something the user and only the user has), and inherence (something the user and only the user is). Two-factor authentication (also known as 2FA) is a type, or subset, of multi-factor authentication. It is a method of confirming users’ claimed identities by using a combination of two different factors: 1) something they know, 2) something they have, or 3) something they are.

For organizations of all sizes that need to protect sensitive data at scale, Duo is the user-friendly zero-trust security platform for all users, all devices and all applications. With Duo, you can confirm user identities, monitor the health of managed and unmanaged devices, set adaptive security policies tailored to your business, and provide security-backed, user-friendly single sign-on. Duo can be the beginning of your journey to Zero Trust. Zero trust takes security beyond the corporate network perimeter, protecting your data at every access attempt, from any device, anywhere. It is the future of information security — and Duo is your rock-solid foundation.
