The Security Services offering by Phoenix NAP provides Clients with a scalable information security solution, capable of detecting and notifying on potential security threats against a Client’s environment. This proprietary set of systems and processes utilizes state of the art hardware, software, and security industry professionals to observe and monitor Client network(s), endpoint(s), and other related events to detect anomalous actions and security threats.
PNAP will examine the Client’s current computer networking platform, its hosting, and data security requirements to the extent Client has provided PNAP access, and confirms that the agreed upon Service(s) may interact and operate with the Client’s platform and provide a secure environment in accordance with the specifications, and in accordance with industry standards set forth in the agreed upon Statement of Work (SOW).
If the agreement between PNAP and the Client is terminated or expires, Client shall have the option to either renew the agreement or replace the PNAP Security Services with a third-party provider of its choosing. Upon request, PNAP shall undertake commercially reasonable efforts to transition Client to the new provider as quickly, economically and efficiently as possible and if possible, will do so in a way that provides the most seamless and secure transition with minimal business interruptions to Client.
|Threat Management Platform||This product offering utilizes Client provided security event logs from different sources (such as firewalls, switches, and servers) and correlates those logs with threat signatures and behavioral analytics to identify activity that may signal the operators of a potential threat event. These threat behavior patterns are gathered from, and updated based on subscribed industry threat intelligence feeds, proprietary threat intelligence, or other data provided by the Client.|
|Patch Management||This offering is the process of using an automated tool to regularly scan systems against a known list of available operating system patches, hotfixes, and/or updates to determine if these should be applied on those systems. If the scans determine that patches are needed, the Patch Management Solution will identify the patch and will schedule the patch installation through a change control process. This product is limited in scope to PNAP currently supported operating systems.|
|Critical Environment Recovery||The Critical Environment Recovery component of the service will make use of the same disaster recovery services already provided by PNAP through its other service offerings. Critical Environment Recovery will be a required component of all security service offerings and packages but will be limited in scope to client servers defined in the agreed upon Statement of Work (SOW).|
|Firewall Switch Management||Many organizations do not have the skill and/or expertise on industry best practices to appropriately manage their firewalls and switches. Especially for companies using more advanced layer 7 firewalls, internal personnel may not have the necessary training or resources to effectively maintain and monitor these devices as designed. Additionally, when internal administrators do make changes to their firewalls and switches, they frequently do so without keeping adequate history of the changes, therefore not having the proper documentation required for compliance reasons. PNAP’s Firewall/Switch Management offering will include both the appropriate management of the firewalls and switches, as well as the necessary documentation, including managing and tracking the authentication for users making changes, as well as tracking the prior configurations to allow for the roll-back of changes if needed.|
|Vulnerability Assessment||The Vulnerability Assessment offering scans Client approved internal and external networks using automated tools that utilize known threat vectors to test for vulnerabilities. In cases where a Certified Scanning Vendor’s services are necessary, PNAP will engage one of it’s partners to perform these services on their behalf, at a pre-negotiated frequency as agreed to with the client and their compliance requirements.|
|Performance Monitoring||Performance Monitoring includes reporting on performance trends, proactive monitoring of alerts, and conducting analyses on performance metrics; such as up/down frequency & bandwidth usage, processors, memory, and storage utilization. Reporting method and frequency will be defined in the associated Statement of Work (SOW).|
|End Point Security||The End Point Security Service manages the security of server and end-user devices, such as PC workstations and laptops, by using anti-malware software. This service offering will monitor, maintain, and manage the endpoint agents, ensuring they are up-to-date and functional.|
PNAP shall implement the following best practices with regard to development and deployment of the Products and Services. PNAP shall maintain appropriate systems security for the PNAP’s Service in accordance with commercially reasonable industry standards and practices designed to protect all data and information provided by or on behalf of Client that is input into, displayed on or processed by the PNAP’s Service and all output therefrom (“Client Data”) from theft, unauthorized disclosure and unauthorized access. Such systems security includes, among other things: (1) implementation of application vulnerability tests and mitigation processes; (2) direct all PNAP-Client electronic communications via a secure web portal, a secure file share, or encrypted email; and (3) the following safeguards:
PNAP shall implement and maintain an intrusion detection monitoring process at the network and host level to protect PNAP Services and to detect unwanted or hostile network traffic. PNAP shall update its intrusion detection software continuously, on a scheduled basis following the availability of updates by the chosen software provider. PNAP shall implement measures to ensure that PNAP is alerted when the system or service detects unusual or malicious activity. PNAP shall notify Client within twenty four (24) hours of any significant intrusion that involves a breach of customer’s data.
PNAP shall conduct penetration tests at least once per year on its Client-wide computing environment through a 3rd party Qualified Security Assessor (QSA), and appropriately dispose of the risks identified. Due to the high-risk nature of these reports, the reports and findings will not be publicly disclosed, or made available for client inspection. PNAP will however make available upon request, a letter from the QSA of satisfactory disposition of identified threat concerns. Clients will not be authorized to conduct vulnerability scans, assessments, or penetration tests against the PNAP service infrastructure.
PNAP shall configure the infrastructure (e.g., servers and network devices) and platforms (e.g., OS and web servers) to be secure following these best practices:
In addition to the third-party vulnerability assessments described above, PNAP shall implement commercially reasonable processes designed to protect Client Data from system vulnerabilities, including:
PNAP utilizes an industry standard methodology for platform hardening and secure configuration, in order to reduce attack scope and surface. Through the use of micro-segmentation techniques, lateral communication is further restricted to known communication pairs and patterns.
PNAP shall maintain security incident management policies and procedures, including detailed security incident escalation procedures. In the event of a breach of PNAP’s security or confidentiality obligations, impacting a client's environment or data, PNAP agrees to notify affected Client(s) by telephone and email of such an event within twenty-four (24) hours of discovery. PNAP will also promptly perform an investigation into the breach, take appropriate remedial measures, and assign a Single-Point-of-Contact (SPoC). This SPoC or their designee, will be available for security questions or concerns twenty-four (24) hours per day, seven (7) days per week, during the scope of PNAP’s investigation.
PNAP shall use a patch management process and tool set to keep all servers up to date with appropriate security and feature patches.
PNAP shall use a documented remediation process designed to timely address all identified threats and vulnerabilities with respect to the PNAP Service.
PNAP shall maintain a written information security policy that is approved annually by PNAP and published and communicated to all PNAP employees and relevant third parties. PNAP shall maintain a dedicated security and compliance function to design, maintain and operate security in support of its “trust platform” in line with industry standards. This function shall focus on system integrity, risk acceptance, risk analysis and assessment, risk evaluation, risk management and treatment statements of applicability and PNAP management.
PNAP shall ensure, at no expense to Client, that all PNAP employees and Clients complete relevant training required to operationalize the procedures and practices outlined herein, including security awareness training, on at least an annual basis.
PNAP and Client may meet at least once annually to discuss: (1) the effectiveness of the PNAP’s security platform; and (2) any updates, patches, fixes, innovations or other improvements made to electronic data security by other commercial providers or for other customers of PNAP that PNAP or Client believe will improve the effectiveness of the PNAP’s security platform for Client.
PNAP shall maintain policies, practices and procedures sufficient to comply with the Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard, as the same may be amended from time to time, with respect to the PNAP’s Service.
PNAP shall conduct application vulnerability assessments at least annually. These assessments will be conducted with a 3rd party Qualified Security Assessor (QSA). Due to the high-risk nature of these reports, the reports and findings will not be publicly disclosed, or made available for client inspection. PNAP will however make available upon request, a letter from the QSA of satisfactory disposition of identified threat concerns. Clients will not be authorized to conduct vulnerability scans, assessments, or penetration tests against the PNAP application platforms.
PNAP shall limit access to its facilities utilized in performing the PNAP’s Service to employees and authorized visitors using commercially reasonable industry standard physical security methods. At a minimum, such methods shall include visitor sign-ins, restricted access key cards and locks for employees; limited access to server rooms and archival backups; and burglar/intrusion alarm systems.
PNAP shall have a business continuity plan in place for the restoration of critical processes and operations of the PNAP’s Service at the location(s) from which the PNAP’s Service is provided. PNAP shall also have an annually tested plan in place to assist PNAP in reacting to a disaster in a planned and tested manner. PNAP shall provide Client with a copy of its then-current plan promptly following Client’s written request for same.
