4 Cybersecurity Problems & Solutions
You have a pressing cybersecurity need in your business? Or you feel lost in all the industry lingo? The problem just needs to be fixed. Here, we review four common problems we hear about from clients, and the solutions we recommend for each -- from both defensive and offensive security professionals. Once you find a solution, you can worry less about security and get back to doing business. If you have a problem, we'll solve it. We're basically Vanilla Ice. (Ha!)
Problem 1: Software security breaches happen every day. How can we integrate security into our software or app from the beginning?
Our solution: Begin with the end in mind. It's important to integrate security into the entire software process. And it's a mouthful to say, but what you need is this: Software Development Life Cycle - Secure Integration. This means security is intertwined in the nature of the program, not just an afterthought.
Ideally, this process includes:
Dynamic Application Security Testing (DAST)
Static Application Security Testing (SAST)
Interactive Application Security Testing (IAST)
WebApplication Security Testing (WebAPP Testing)
Design, Construction, & Project Management
API Security Testing (API-ST)
Problem 2: How can gaps be found in the network before attackers find them?
Our solution: Quarterly vulnerability tests and Penetration Testing. The only real way to test your defenses is to let someone attack them. Preferably an ethical, thoughtful hacker who will provide a thorough report back to you before any malicious attackers find the gaps. To keep up with the quickly-changing threat landscape, the most current industry advice is to conduct risk assessments quarterly.
Problem 3: Important add-on services aren't included with standard EDR.
Our solution: EDR Integration. EDR (Endpoint Detection & Response) can be an overwhelming field of options. Any one EDR software might not meet all your needs, so you purchase additional software modules that must cooperate with the EDR. Thirty percent of organizations deploy more than 50 cybersecurity tools to protect their network. Yikes. (IBM/Poneman Cyber Resilience Report 2021.) A trusted third party can help with these integrations, maximizing your software investment and staff time.
Problem 4: There are TOO MANY systems and monitoring tools! Why can't one service take care of it all?
Our solution: the Automated SOC. We integrate your services into one Web UI and save you human hours and wages. This future-focused solution utilizes AI and will continue to learn and defend as your network and threats evolve. --- [is this true??]
