Regardless of your organization’s size or the capacity of your IT resources, you’ll be subject to attempted data breaches and many other security risks. Through our comprehensive environmental assessment, strategic planning, exhaustive policy review, and continuous monitoring, you can reduce risk and improve security without investing in a large security team and high-level security infrastructure.
Are you subject to privacy regulations such as HIPAA, FISMA, FFIEC, PCI-DSS, FERPA, GLBA, or others? Most firms are subject to one or more of these. A thoughtfully conceived and well-managed cybersecurity model can help you meet and exceed regulatory requirements and reduce time spent reacting to threats and exposures.

Typical Engagement Steps
A Managed Security Services engagement typically begins with an assessment of your current security posture and a comparison to best practices and standards. This includes capturing the current inventory and topology of your network and devices and a review of your stance with regards to security audits, training, and integration of new knowledge.
Policy Engagement and Infrastructure Assessment
We examine your policies and procedures, baseline your IT infrastructure and its security posture, then make recommendations to update and bring them current if necessary. This includes discussion and documentation of your patching and versioning processes, access rights, and change and configuration management processes.
Strategic Security Planning, Continuing Education
We create a strategic plan that will both aid you in adapting to emerging and continuous security threats and better prepare you for regulatory oversight. This can include assisting you directly with responding to audits.
Vulnerability Scanning & Monitoring
Finally, for ongoing and proactive security, we periodically scan for vulnerabilities and deploy advanced network monitoring. Easy-to-use reporting and analysis will help you address exposures and gain valuable insights into the health and performance of your network over time.
