How to approach Security and Compliance?

We offer two approaches to effective Risk Management-ultimately helping you achieve the required level of Security and Compliance

The Budget-focused Approach

The budget-focused approach is geared toward protecting against the threats of today and current compliance requirements. This approach works best for startups and small businesses (10 or fewer users). 

Our entry-level offerings are designed with these small businesses in mind. The budget-focused approach is the optimal approach for a business working on a leaner budget while recognizing that implementing critical controls and actions will help reduce overall risk and prevent issues from surfacing. While this approach leaves some gaps, it’s a good plan to: kickoff, target Compliance, and build a foundation for more robust Risk Management in the future. 

The Value-focused Approach

The value-focused approach is designed to proactively protect against the threats of tomorrow and the regulations that will follow. 

The value-focused approach looks at security and compliance as the drivers of a business. Companies use this level of security as a marketing tool, an added assurance for their customers, and a way to stand out over their competition. Our mid and top tier plans are recommended specifically for such business needs.

What we do for your needs:

Everything in security starts with Endpoint and Email Security. Threats have to make it onto your devices somehow, the most common medium of entry is Email followed by malicious web links and USB drives. If you protect those devices that are authorized to access your systems, you can then implement access restrictions on your sensitive systems to only allow access from authorized devices. This is commonly referred to as user and device authorization and it provides end-to-end protection. Our Data Protection Plans are designed to help businesses make the transition into managed security easier by creating options affordable for any business and designed to scale with you as you grow.

The second step to effective security is to secure your office network. While most new threats target endpoints, users, or cloud data there are still traditional threats which target networks with exposed services or devices. A common example of this for small business is a Network Video Recorder (NVR). In order to be able to access your camera feed remotely you must expose this device to the internet. Unfortunately, these devices are typically shipped with very rudimentary software with few security considerations. Implementing proper network segmentation allows you to protect the rest of your network in case a device, such as a NVR, is compromised. Constant Monitoring, Alerting, and Intrusion Detection provide early warning of an impending attack along with our ability to remotely disconnect network access for compromised devices, perform clean up and restore connectivity. All of this can occur during business hours without any noticeable interruption to other devices on the network. 

So what does a small business need? (e.g. healthcare office with 1-5 doctors)

A business which recognizes and wants to effectively address Cybersecurity risk on a conservative budget, without disrupting workflows or spending weeks training staff on new equipment, would be well served starting with our most affordable plan from each category:

  • The SOHO network perimeter protection package – Starting at just $200/month
