Security Consulting

Our unified network and security management platform ensures contextual awareness, resulting in a true and accurate picture of the customer’s environment. This progressive and comprehensive approach is key to effectively maintaining, optimizing, and securing their infrastructure.

Vulnerability Assessments (VA)

Vulnerabilities manifest within customer environments in a variety of ways. These include the misconfiguration of devices and systems (e.g. sub-optimal configurations, leaving default accounts active, etc.), along with technical flaws or bugs identified with the system itself.  Vulnerabilities may also be introduced via non-technical aspects, such as broken or inadequate processes and procedures, or employees deviating from defined procedure (eg. social engineering).

A Vulnerability Assessment (VA) is the process of identifying and quantifying vulnerabilities found to be present within the environment. This proactive approach to identifying system vulnerabilities allows customers to address issues before they are exploited.

The frequency with which vulnerability scans are performed has a direct correlation on how long the customer may be exposed to a particular vulnerability. Routine vulnerability scanning service (included in our NextGEN management service) ensure minimal exposure to any new vulnerabilities that are identified within the environment.

Penetration Testing

Penetration Testing provides an effective and proactive approach to evaluating an organization’s security posture.  By modeling real-world attack techniques, we strive to identify key areas to be addressed.

A Penetration Test is an authorized attempt to infiltrate an organization through carefully exploiting any vulnerabilities that may exist.  Vulnerabilities may be introduced into a customer’s environment through technical flaws (bugs) within systems and applications, through misconfiguration of systems and/or devices, or through other non-technical aspects, such as broken or inadequate processes and procedures or employees deviating from such processes (social engineering).

Penetration Tests not only aid organizations in avoiding costly service interruptions and data breaches, but also allow organizations to effectively evaluate the current security mechanisms in place, along with their employee’s adherence to defined policies and procedures.
