A Plan for Defense
Many, if not all companies keep sensitive personal information on their network. Information gathered during the hiring process, new client on boarding process and information used to run the day to day operations of a business should all be considered sensitive. Businesses should have, at minimum a robust and easily executed security plan in place to ensure all employee and client data is kept safe. Part of ensuring this data safety and security is assessing the network for vulnerabilities.
At Astute Technology Management all our Managed IT Services clients networks are put through a rigorous vulnerability assessment prior to and during the onboarding process. This allows our engineers and technicians to create the strongest perimeter and internal defense structure possible to protect our client’s data. All vulnerability assessments are reviewed in detail with the business owner or internal IT support staff to create a strategic and structured plan for defense.
Astute Technology Management partners with Cisco Meraki line of unified management devices to ensure the firewall, switches and wireless access points are manageable, scalable and secure.
We also understand that the vulnerability of our client’s network doesn’t stop at the door to their business. Gone are the days of 9 AM to 5 PM office schedule. People work everywhere via portable and mobile devices and the security of the network needs to follow these devices once they leave the sanctuary of the physical building. Astute Technology Management is able to create and implement a network security plan structured to fit the needs of all our clients. Our software and hardware are designed to constantly monitor our client’s perimeter and internal defenses for possible attacks and breaches. If an attack or breach is suspected, our systems create an alert ticket so that one of our highly skilled technicians can immediately assess the concern and address needs as they arise.
