Threat Monitoring

Threat Monitoring uses agents installed on each of your servers, which continuously analyse data to distinguish between potential security breaches and normal activity. It works to deliver the following services:

  • Host-based Intrusion Detection and log file collation
  • Vulnerability scans
  • File integrity monitoring
  • Rootkit detection

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.

What do the alerts look like?

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.
