A secure IT architecture to protect companies from modern cyber attacks

Security Architecture

Minimize potential threats and risks

In an increasingly digitalized world, companies are facing ever-growing challenges in the area of cyber security. A secure IT architecture is of crucial importance in protecting against modern cyber attacks. Security Architecture is a comprehensive approach to the design, implementation and monitoring of security measures in an organization or in IT systems. It is designed to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of information as well as the security of IT infrastructures. The Security Architecture defines the framework and structure for security measures in order to minimize potential threats and risks.

Our solution approach at UNITY not only includes secure IT transformation to the cloud and the migration of legacy IT, but also identity-based zero-trust approaches. We focus on the development, implementation and continuous monitoring of your IT architecture to provide your company with the best possible protection against cyber threats. By integrating these elements, you create a comprehensive and coherent security structure that takes into account an organization's individual requirements and risks while being flexible enough to respond to new threats and technologies.
