Onboarding and offboarding
|Getting started||Barrier Networks onboards customers by gathering all key information required to bring the service live. All system information and supporting documentation is developed and distributed to the customer as part of the onboarding process. Detailed design documentation is derived from this initial documentation. The detailed design is agreed and signed off by both parties prior to implementation. A full copy of the system documentation is provided following user acceptance testing.|
|End-of-contract data extraction||Data is provided upon request by Barrier Networks once the contract has ceased.|
|End-of-contract process||All Software functionality is provided for the duration of the contract with Barrier Networks. Once the contract has ceased, the organisation will be off - boarded, information securely deleted from the Barrier Networks database, and tenant is removed at no extra cost. Bespoke off-boarding requirements can be purchased via "Barrier Networks Cyber Security Consultancy Services".|

|What users can and can't do using the API||
The edgescan™ service was built as a cloud-based SaaS and an open API, so that the users can push and pull integrations to both existing business systems and security systems.
We realise the importance of accurate vulnerability intelligence, but we are also fully aware that many Cyber Security teams are under resourced, and stretched from a resource perspective. The integration capability of the edgescan™ API means that we can create a push/pull integration with any system that supports a restful API architecture.
We have integrations built with anything from Jira, ServiceNow, Jenkins, Remedy, Splunk, SIEM platforms, RSA-Archer, RSAM, to name but a few. The integrations are custom to each client requirement, but are generally based on use cases such as the following;
• Raising an incident ticket
• Raising a remediation ticket
• Raising an asset management ticket for internal workflow
• Raising a bug tracking ticket
• Creating an alert and message in Slack.
• Creating an alert to notify the Secops team/ App Dev Team/Helpdesk team/ of a specific event etc.
E.G: link to restful API detail from topdesk.

|Vulnerability management type||Supplier-defined controls|
|Vulnerability management approach||All external facing services are subject to monthly vulnerability scans. Patching takes place monthly with emergency patching taking place within 1 week of the vulnerability detection. In extreme circumstances and to protect the security of the organisation and customer, Barrier Networks will patch on the same day. Vulnerability information is obtained from Cisco's TALOS platform and Cisco TAC. We use independent feeds using QUALSYS and EDGESCAN scanning engines, correlating all known CVE's, enabling us to establish impact for all managed assets scanned by the platform.|
|Protective monitoring type||Supplier-defined controls|
|Protective monitoring approach||Our SOC provides Intrusion Detection Vulnerability Assessment and security alerting for malicious activity. IDS and Network Monitoring component provides real-time detection of security incidents. If an intrusion/breach is detected, a security alert is issued which generates an automatic ticket within the SOC Helpdesk software. These tickets are classified based on the Priority. Our incident response process is designed in alignment with NIST Special Publication 800-61 Revision 2 and is a service that is available to customers.|
|Incident management type||Supplier-defined controls|
|Incident management approach||Incident Response Service for managing security incident and is based on NIST Special Publication 800-61 Revision 2 . Incidents are logged with a unique case reference number and tracked from triage through to resolution via our service desk platform. We have pre-approved processes / changes for certain tasks, however day to day operation is bespoke per customer and may change depending on the organisation’s needs. Users can report incidents via email, web or telephone. Reports are provided via email upon request. Major incident reports are provided within 48 hours of the incident resolution.
