Cyber Security

Cyber security is, quite simply, about understanding and mitigating risk. It can be a huge enabler for organisations and is key to modern business efficiency.  The cyber threat has evolved rapidly over the years and new legislations have also increased the need for organisations to protect against attacks or breaches.

  • what steps they need to take to become more cyber resilient.

Privileged Access Management (PAM)

Centrify is redefining the legacy approach to Privileged Access Management by delivering multi-cloud-architected Identity-Centric PAM to enable digital transformation at scale. Centrify Identity-Centric PAM establishes a root of trust, and then grants least privilege access just-in-time based on verifying who is requesting access, the context of the request, and the risk of the access environment. Centrify centralizes and orchestrates fragmented identities, improves audit and compliance visibility, and reduces risk, complexity, and costs for the modern, hybrid enterprise.  For more information about Centrify, visit

Secure SD-WAN

As the use of business-critical, cloud-based applications and tools continue to increase, distributed organizations with multiple remote offices are switching from performance-inhibited wide-area networks (WANs) to software-defined WAN (SD-WAN) architectures. SD-WAN offers business application steering, cost savings, and performance for Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) applications, as well as unified communication services. However, SD-WAN has its own shortcomings—especially when it comes to security with direct internet access. Fortinet FortiGate Secure SD-WAN includes best-of-breed next-generation firewall (NGFW) security, SD-WAN, advanced routing, and WAN optimization capabilities, delivering a security-driven networking WAN edge transformation in a unified offering.

ES has recently been appointed as a Platinum Partner of Sepio Systems who have established a new cyber defence domain. HAC-1 is the only solution of its kind in the world today. Large South African Banking institutions are long standing satisfied clients among other global clients across all segments.

Rogue Devices (USB HID-emulating devices or Layer 1 Network Implants) for example allow cybercriminals to evade detection by operating under the radar of existing security controls such as XDR, DLP, NAC, EPS, IDS, or IoT network security.

By going deeper than any other security solution, HAC-1 uses Physical Layer information to calculate a digital fingerprint of all IT, OT, IoT and IIoT assets – managed or unmanaged – no device goes undetected.

HAC-1 accurately identifies devices and their associated risk posture based on multiple Physical Layer parameters and a unique machine learning algorithm to provide visibility like never before – traffic monitoring can only tell you so much. HAC-1’s ultimate visibility means unmanaged switches, passive taps and out-bound devices no longer fly under the radar.

The solution continuously monitors all hardware assets to account for any anomalies, issuing an alert when there are any changes to a device’s risk posture.
