Dear Experts,

What external software or services are are most recommended by you to support the security function of an organization?

Thank you!
Watch Question

I am not sure that I understand your question, but I will answer as I understood.

If you have complete Information security department, then it is recommended that you perform penetration test from time to time.

What I mean by complete Information Security Department that includes Security Operation Center (SOC), MMS, IPS, IDS, FWs, ...

Hope this what you asked for:-)

There are packages you can purchase from companies such as sourcefire or cisco and mcafee. Even Symantec is in on the bandwagon.
I would reccomend the vendor you feel most comfotable with and who has a good reputation.
A good consultant should be in your plan as well, CyberTrust fromerly TrueSecure is the one which comes to my mind first...
If you don't have an internal IT/Security, then you should look to get either someone qualified or contract a 3rd party who offer "managed services".

depending on the needs of your organization, you would possibly require some of these services:
Firewall, Antivrus, Content Filtering, Remote access VPN, proxy, messaging....etc etc

There are multiple organisations which provide these services, so look up someone in your area and if your a multinational, then you can talk to me :-)
