Investigation and analysis play essential roles in cybersecurity. They provide context, visibility, and evidence related to an attack against your organization, so you can understand how an intruder gained access to your environment, their actions once inside, and steps that can be taken to prevent such incidents from happening again. Fortis has a team of highly certified forensics investigators ready to gather intelligence and deliver insights based on their extensive experience handling all types of threats.
Forensics can be used in situations well beyond conducting an investigation during or after an attack. If one of your IT assets, users, or endpoints begins to exhibit peculiar behavior that you suspect may be the result of compromise and/or malicious intent, Fortis Forensics Services can search for evidence and assist with escalation as needed. If an employee accidentally opens a suspicious link or attachment and you’re concerned it may have installed malware or given a bad actor access to your network, our experts know where to look and in many cases can help you stop an attack before it has the opportunity to start.
Fortis Forensics services closely follow best practices to conduct a thorough investigation aimed at preserving evidence and providing your organization with all the ammunition required to neutralize threats.
- We identify any indicators of compromise, along with the location of systems, applications, devices, and data that may have been affected.
