Be part of our Security Monitoring team

Personal and company data must be protected to the fullest extent possible. The NFIR provides automated SIEM/SOC solutions to actively monitor network activities and file data in applications. We have developed these Managed Detection & Response (MDR) services with our team of driven software developers and above all security specialists to relieve our clients as much as possible. The deployment of our MDR solutions eliminates the need to manually analyze log files for the purpose of network traffic and perform random testing. Think of it as a fire alarm for understanding rogue network traffic or unauthorized file opening. For example, in an Electronic Patient (or Client) Record. We offer these solutions to public sector organizations, hospitals and healthcare facilities. As a Security Engineer, you may soon be working on the development and maintenance of these services.
