APPENDIX A

Included Services:

  • Threat Detection – detects threats to CUSTOMER'S network by using a signature based algorithm, a behavioral based algorithm and a combination of both to identify threats. These threats take many forms from simple scanning and port mapping tools to specific targets intrusion attempts. Axiom firewalls inspect every packet going into and leaving the device so that we can effectively mitigate all known threats.

  • Threat Prevention –actively prevents intrusion attempts by taking action on packets deemed to be potential threats. The firewall will either drop the traffic, add the offending IP to a blacklist, deny the packet or a combination of all of these.

  • Denial of Service Protection –denial of service protection built in. The Axiom Automated Threat Defense Platform (ATDP) proprietary algorithm is able to identify a denial of service in under 1 second. The firewall blocks all offending denial of service traffic from entering the client’s network by using a combination of blacklist, packet hold and packet drop techniques.

  • Ransomware Protection –identifies and stops ransomware communication that passes through the network. By blocking the communication to the blockchain/bitcoin and Tor network, and Axiom’s other proprietary algorithms, the firewall can prevent most known ransomware. Note: As with any new and emerging threat, there is not a 100% identification rate. Although our algorithm and expression engine is highly advanced, Axiom recommends endpoint protection that is up to date and capable of identifying ransomware.

  • Real-time Monitoring and Alerts – has internal and external monitoring software that can detect when the device is under sustained or large attack, when the device is offline due to power or service outage, or when the device is using a large amount of CPU. These factors as well as the metrics of traffic flow allow Axiom to correlate events and notify the business via email, text message or phone call. Preferred contact method will be selected by the client in the customer portal, account section.
  • Automatic Updates –updates will be deployed to the Axiom Automated Threat Defense Platform (ATDP) through our update engine. Updates are automated from Axiom and do not require intervention by our clients. Our updates also are seamless and do not require our firewalls to restart. Once deployed the customer Axiom Automated Threat Defense Platform (ATDP), the newest protection begins immediately.
