What does Threat Monitoring do?

Host-based Intrusion Detection & Log File collation

UKFast provide a default list of logs and events collected which can be customised for your environment on a discovery day with a UKFast security analyst. If any of the 2000 rules created are triggered, an alert will be sent to our internal security team and the appropriate action will be taken. Summary reports and detailed log files are available for analysis and compliance purposes.

Vulnerability Scans

Internal and External vulnerability scans will detect any components that require patching or updating along with a severity rating. These scans can be run as often as required within the client management area and reports are generated as soon as the scan has completed.

Rootkit Detection

A rootkit is a computer program designed to provide privileged access to a computer while actively hiding its presence. Detection methods from Threat Monitoring include behavioural-based methods and signatures. Unfortunately once a rootkit is in place often the only way to remove this is to completely rebuild the compromised system.

File Integrity Monitoring

File Integrity Monitoring is a control that performs the act of validating the integrity of the files requested in the initial stages of set up, or as part of the default list.. This comparison method involves comparing a known checksum of the file monitored, with the checksum of the current state of file. If this is different an alert will be generated.

What do the alerts look like?

Alerts are sent via email, SMS or a telephone call from an security analyst, depending on the initial set up. Alerts are categorised into four levels;


Low level events are expected during day to day use. Low level events can vary from fail over events to Windows audit success / failures for Kerberos tickets. These events will be logged and reported for reference.


Normal events include user activity that is expected but is still monitored. These are events such as successful logins from IPs that are expected and during normal hours.


High level alerts may need immediate investigation, such as successful logins from unknown IP addresses and changes to user account permissions. These events should be infrequent and not ignored.


Critical alerts are indicators of a system compromise and need to be investigated immediately. Critical alerts could include successful logins after failed attempts, modifications to core system files, and modifications to payment gateway files.
