Stay ahead of cyber threats

Get Started

Security is no longer an option. It’s a necessity.

Technology keeps evolving. So does the severity and number of cyberattacks.

From exploiting vulnerabilities in software to tricking users into revealing sensitive information, cyber attackers keep coming up with new techniques every hour to gain access to your IT systems. If your confidential data is not protected with top-notch defence mechanisms around-the-clock, it becomes vulnerable to cyberattacks and data breaches, making it easier for hackers and cybercriminals to gain unauthorized access to the data and steal or compromise it.

  Cybercrime has been up 600% since COVID-19

  A ransomware attack succeeded every 40 seconds in 2022

  Over 43% of attacks are aimed at SMBs

  The average total cost of a data breach was $4.35 million in 2022

  The average cost of a ransomware attack was $4.54 million (not including the cost of the ransom itself)

  The total cost of cyber-attacks against SMBs was $2.8 billion in 2020

The devastating outcomes of a data breach

  • Loss of data

  • Financial loss

  • Loss of customers, partners, and investors

  • Damage to reputation and trust

  • Legal liabilities

  • Loss of competitive advantage

  • Disruption of business operations (productivity and revenue loss)

  • Loss of intellectual property

Pathway Cybersecurity Services  

Give your IT assets the elite security they deserve

Pathway Communications offers end-to-end security solutions for infrastructure and application monitoring, threat detection, visibility, and response. Our security platforms collect data from several sources and endpoints, analyze and present these for visualization in dashboards. This allows Security Analysts to immediately detect, identify, investigate, and respond to potential threats and adverse events.



We prevent

  • Security assessments and audits to identify vulnerabilities and risks in your system
  • Penetration testing to simulate real-world attacks and identify weak spots in your defences
  • Security training and awareness programs to educate your employees on safe online behaviour and best practices

We protect 

  • 24/7 security monitoring by our expert SOC team, using state-of-the-art tools and technologies
  • Real-time threat detection and response to minimize the impact of any security incidents
  • Continuous vulnerability scanning and patch management to ensure your system is always up-to-date and secure

We resolve

  • Incident response planning and execution to minimize the damage of a security incident
  • Forensic investigations to determine the cause of a breach and prevent it from happening again
  • Data recovery and restoration services to get your system back up and running as quickly as possible

Our holistic approach to cybersecurity



Our Security Analysts conduct a thorough risk assessment to identify and analyze potential risks and vulnerabilities in your organization’s IT assets and systems. We will use a combination of IT Security Audits, Vulnerability Assessments, Penetration Tests, and customized assessments (based on the specific threat landscape and regulatory/legal requirements) to analyze current security posture and related gaps.

Development & Implement

Based on the risk assessment results, our team of experts develops a customized security plan based on your budget and existing security setup to mitigate the identified risks and threats. This plan is designed to remediate critical gaps and easy wins that can immediately help your organization minimize cyber risks.



Pathway uses different SIEM (Security Incident and Event Monitoring) technologies that can be customized based on your requirements to detect threats, ensure compliance, and manage security incidents. Through the lightweight agents on your devices and network, SIEM technologies collect, ship, analyze, visualize, and store detailed performance data, such as response time for requests, database queries, calls to caches, failed password attempts, external HTTP requests, and more.

We gather this real-time information from multiple endpoints, whether they are located on-premises, in a data center, or in the cloud. This helps us to quickly detect any anomalies or threats and take action to mitigate them. Our agent policies are continuously updated to incorporate new data sources, patterns, and protection methods to keep your system secure.

Pathway Security Analysts validate each detected threat to eliminate false positives and ensure that only the real threats are dealt with. Our threat detection relies on multiple protocols:

  • End user and device behaviour anomalies (UEBA)
  • Network Traffic Analysis (NTA)
  • Comparison of signatures and features from threat intelligence feeds
  • Proactive threat hunting by SOC Analysts
  • Intruder deception methods such as honeypots

All our detection efforts are based on the Indicators of Compromise (IOCs) aligned to the MITRE ATT&CK™ framework. This framework is a global knowledge base that captures attackers’ real-world tactics and techniques. With these methods, we can provide top-notch security solutions for your business.


Respond & Remediate

When an alert is confirmed to be a real threat, Pathway’s security team quickly investigates and prioritizes the event. Senior security engineers handle such events and take steps such as isolating, confining and stopping the attack. Some remedial measures are automated using software playbooks, while others require careful examination by experts following standard operating procedures.

We work like an extension of your IT teams to remediate cyber incidents in a timely manner. We develop procedures and operational guides that ensure all remediation activities are seamless and timely. After a genuine threat is detected and remediated, Pathway’s experts conduct a thorough analysis to identify the source, timeline, and path to the event. This information is used to implement preventive measures promptly. We partner with corporations and professionals who can perform advanced forensic inspections to aid this process.

Benefits of IT Support Services

Pathway’s SIEMs detect anomalies in your systems by comparing real-time data against normal functions. However, as new threats, breaches, and malware emerge every day, we also compare the data against new and evolving threat signatures and patterns to stay ahead of cyber attackers. Our sources for this information come from commercial threat intelligence feeds delivered by multiple providers. In addition, we also perform regular security assessments, penetration testing, and training programs for our staff to continuously improve our service to you.
