What is a Managed Services Provider? A managed services provider (MSP) offers management and support of IT network-based services, applications and equipment. As businesses become increasingly dependent on IT, the need for a reliable MSP that allows business owners and employees to focus on their core functions has become critical.

A Good DEFENSE Never Rests – F. Lee Bailey
Cybersecurity threats are on the rise, and cybercriminals have set their sights on businesses of all sizes. The number of security breaches reported in the US has been increasing rapidly and the cost of dealing with a cybersecurity incident has only gotten more expensive.
Managed Microsoft 365 Services
The Microsoft 365 (M365) platform benefits organizations through increased productivity for individuals as well as the organization, greater collaboration, additional security features, ease of mobility, and OneDrive cloud storage. With extensive features and opportunities for business improvement, it makes sense to work with a Managed Services Provider who has the experience to maximize and seamlessly utilize all the benefits.
Security Awareness Training and Simulated Phishing
Protect your organization, and your reputation, from cyber criminals by starting from the inside-out.
According to a recent study by Symantec, smaller organizations ranging from 1–250 employees have the highest targeted malicious email rate at 1 in 323. A massive 94% of malware is delivered by email. A solid firewall and spam protection are a good start, but sometimes threats can slip through even the most high-end security tools. Educating end-users is critical to preventing data breaches and other attacks.
Dark Web Monitoring
Ongoing Detection of Compromised User Credentials
The dark web is a dangerous, anonymous portion of the Internet where a lot of illegal activity happens. When a website or organization experiences a data breach, the hackers often take the stolen data and distribute (or sell) it on the dark web. Today, high-profile data breaches happen all the time, and in 2019 alone more than 5.3 billion records were exposed.
What is the Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC)?
CMMC stands for “Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification”. The CMMC is a formal certification intended to ensure that appropriate levels of cybersecurity controls and processes are in place to protect controlled unclassified information (CUI) residing on DoD contractor networks. If your business offers products and/or services to the DoD or a DoD contractor, the CMMC will apply to you.

Penetration Testing Services
Internal & External Network Penetration Testing, Web App Penetration, and Social Engineering
Every 39 seconds there is another cyber attack. Cybercriminals are utilizing robust tools and sophisticated techniques to attack businesses and steal data. Knowing your own weaknesses is critical to preventing disaster before it is too late.
Penetration testing simulates real-world attacks which identify points of exploitation and test your defensive mechanisms. The primary goal of a penetration test is to evaluate your overall security posture.
Get a Strategic, Unbiased Perspective on Cybersecurity Threats
The modern business environment is an increasingly complex system with many shifting pieces. Over time, new end-points are added, software is installed or changed, and policies are adjusted. Cloud services are increasingly embraced, and workforces continue to be more mobile. This can lead to exploits that online threats and cybercriminals can take advantage of.

Virtual Chief Information Security Officer
A Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) is the senior-level executive within an organization responsible for establishing and maintaining the enterprise vision, strategy, and program to ensure information assets and technologies are adequately protected. For organizations who can’t support the need or budget of a full-time CISO, outsourcing to a virtual CISO (vCISO) is a great option that brings both strategic and operational leadership on security.
HIPAA Security Risk Assessment
Meeting and Sustaining HIPAA Compliance Requires Regular Evaluation
Protecting sensitive patient and customer data is not only ethical, it’s required. In order to maintain HIPAA compliance, your organization needs to have written policies and procedures, provide employee HIPAA security training, and perform regular compliance testing across the board.

Empower Your Business through Mobility and Scalability
Cloud computing offers a massive range of capabilities that were once only reserved for businesses who were prepared to make costly, and sometimes risky investments.
