You want your entire network secured against infiltration and data loss. This includes servers, personal computers, mobile devices, laptops, and any other device that connects to your business network. At the beginning of our cyber security engagements, we’ll run a comprehensive network security audit to analyze your protections at every level of your network and operations.
After we fully understand your network security vulnerability and gaps, we’ll start implementing a systematic, documented plan for maximizing your cybersecurity controls. Here’s what that includes:
Firewall and network security management configuration
Multifactor authentication deployment and management
Custom backup and disaster recovery solutions to safeguard your data
Cybersecurity awareness training for your team
Detailed service level agreement (SLA) with network security metrics and goals
Friendly, accessible cybersecurity staff to answer all your questions
We’re big believers that businesses don’t just need cyber protections, they also need to feel supported.
We’ll sit down with you every month to discuss the latest threats, review your network security analytics, and your team adjust your security protections to keep your data and network as secure as possible.
Defending yourself against known threats isn’t enough, criminals are innovating new threats too quickly for that. To keep your business truly safe, you need a cybersecurity posture that is active and forward thinking.
To help companies achieve this proactive level of defense, our cybersecurity staff stays ahead of the latest malware threats and cybersecurity news for you and then regularly incorporates that intelligence into your defenses, so you’ve always got the best protections.
Network security monitoring to detect issues quickly
Digital forensics to distinguish serious threats from false positives
Firewall configuration and maintenance to protect your network perimeter

Reliable protection from ransomware attacks is not an easy goal.
Ready-made ransomware kits on the dark web and an evolving threat landscape means that the ransomware defenses that worked last year absolutely cannot be trusted to work this year. The Astute Technology Management team gathers daily security intelligence, providing you with the most up-to-date, sophisticated ransomware protections available in the Columbus area.
Cybersecurity Awareness Training
Phishing attacks are a leading cause of ransomware infection, which is why it’s critical that your staff know how to spot phishing emails and other fraudulent communications before they expose your company to attack. We provide all our clients with regular cybersecurity awareness training, preparing them to spot advanced phishing and social engineering techniques and keeping them ahead of hackers.
Ransomware Recovery Services
Even big most well-defended organizations can fall victim to a successful ransomware attack, all it takes is one person clicking on the wrong link. If that ever happens, we’ll immediately spring into action with a ransomware recovery and containment plan that prevents the damage from spreading and minimizes your downtime.
