Cybersecurity

Today’s cybersecurity challenges requires a comprehensive, multi-layered security approach with a proactive Managed Service Plan designed to prevent multiple forms of attacks. Integrated Technologies offers the best solution for managed cybersecurity.

Scams are constantly evolving, and cyber criminals are becoming increasingly savvy in using methods to get information and money from unsuspecting businesses. While there are many different ways to protect your information, not one technique has ever been entirely successful. The key to providing the most effective cybersecurity protocols is to layer different types of security measures so that the gaps and loopholes between each one becomes significantly smaller, allowing hackers less opportunity to do their dirty work.

You can alleviate a lot of risk and worry by utilizing our multi-layered,
security approach offered through our Managed Service Plans.

Our solution can better protect your IT resources and improve your security. Individual layers in a multi-layered security approach focus on a specific area where malware could attack. These layers work together to tighten security and have a better chance of stopping intruders from breaching your network than using a traditional single security solution.

Layers are beneficial for many reasons. Individually, each layer provides an added level of defense so that with each extra layer of security added, there will be less access, making it more challenging for hackers to find ways to infiltrate your network. While each layer in and of itself is not an adequate defense mechanism, layering them together improves each one’s efficiency to minimize or stop the hacker’s ability to gain entry. Instead of trying to rely on just one or two lines of defense, multiple layers of security will mitigate your risk of a breach and enhance your business continuity.

Don’t Think You’re A Target For Cyber Crimes?

Many small business owners have a false sense of security, assuming they’re too small to attract the attention of hackers. While it might be more difficult for these hackers to break into the network of a large corporation, it’s easy for them to attack small businesses with ransomware or steal customer information and sell it on the dark web. Most small businesses think their information is not important to hackers. WRONG! Your information is the lifeblood of your company. If hackers hold your data hostage, you can’t function as a business until you pay the ransom!

If you were a cybercriminal, would you attempt to hack into Amazon or Amy’s Tax Service? Amazon will have the most robust cyber threat protection available. Amy, on the other hand, thinks cyber criminals are not interested in her information, making Amy an easy target.

How Does It Happen?

Hackers have several options: here’s one example. If a hacker is looking to “cash-in” on a poorly protected business, they assume the finance department reads any invoice received, so the hacker emails the accountants a malicious spreadsheet. Like clockwork, an employee opens the phony document, clicks “Enable Macros”, and the hacker is now in your network! The company is now being controlled by the hacker.

Once a hacker has breached your network and has control of your corporate data, you are at their mercy! If you do not have a recent backup of your data, you only have two options.

1) Pay the hacker an obscene amount (thousands of dollars) of ransom money through your new Bitcoin account.

2) You will lose all your files and documentation including your client’s information. Basically, you start over.

Cyber Tip: Most hackers will only accept ransom payments through Bitcoin. A new Bitcoin account could take several hours to setup. If you decide against a robust cyber security plan, you may want to invest in a Bitcoin account, soon.

The foundation of a strong security posture starts with a multi-layered, Managed Service Plan.

Managed Service Plan Options

Whether you need periodic service with our Business Essentials Plan, or you need an “all inclusive solution” with our Business Elite Plan, we offer a service plan that’s right for your business. Each plan option includes our layered security approach to ensure your total protection.

Business
Essentials

Our Advanced, Semi-Managed plan.

This model proactively monitors your entire system to predict outages and breakdowns. With this level of service, we mitigate issues before they become a problem and affect your business productivity. This includes the remote management of your Workstations and Servers. This plan is offered for a monthly fee with a reduced hourly rate for labor.

Business
Elite

Our Premium, Fully Managed plan.

This model delivers all the benefits of the Semi-Managed model, but at a fixed rate, flat-fee. This allows you to budget for your IT maintenance and avoid any unexpected costly repair bills. The fixed rate, flat-fee model is similar to your “Even Pay” power or gas bill. Regardless how much the service is used, you still only pay the Flat Fee.

We’ve carefully curated a best-of-breed set of essential tools and management services. You can be assured that your network is being protected through our layered security approach with our security components below.

Managed Workstation Monitoring Agents and Patching Maintenance

Eliminate blind spots in your supported IT environment before they become a problem. Our remote tool allows discovery of all devices and users so they can be proactively monitored 24x7x365. This enables us to remotely connect to your device for proactive maintenance, while improving reactive response times. It will also automatically generate a service request ticket as issues arise and handle all patches and updates of the Operating System.

Managed NextGen AI Driven Enterprise Antivirus, Anti-Malware, Anti-Ransomware

Our Endpoint Protection Platform unifies prevention, detection and response in a single purpose-built agent powered by machine learning and automation. It provides prevention and detection of attacks across all major vectors, rapid elimination of threats with fully automated, policy-driven response capabilities. Protected devices self-defend and heal themselves by stopping processes, quarantining, remediating and even rolling back events to keep endpoints in a perpetually clean state while automatically isolating infected devices and immunizes the remaining endpoints.

DNS Web Content Filtering

Content filtering provides the first line of defense against threats on the internet. Our solution delivers complete visibility into internet activity across all locations, devices, and users, while blocking threats before they ever reach your network or endpoints. You can effectively manage your user’s internet access through category-based content filtering and allow/block list browsing enforcement. This ensures your users access only suitable browsing content to eliminate time wasters and unsafe search environments.

Security Awareness Training and Simulated Phishing

More than ever, employees are the weak link in your network security. We offer Security Awareness Training that starts with a baseline test to show the actual Phish-prone percentage of your users. Then it steps users through effective, interactive, on-demand browser-based training. The service automatically sends frequent simulated phishing attacks to your employees to reinforce the training.

Two Factor Authentication

2FA is an extra layer of security used to make sure that people trying to gain access to an online account are who they say they are. The user enters their username and a password, then they are required to provide another piece of information for positive identification, prior to allowing access.

Remote Connectivity

Our solution is a fast, easy-to-use remote access software that allows your employees the flexibility to safely log in to their office computer from any device including all of the top platforms -Windows, Apple, Linux, Android, Mac or iOS.

The seven layer model provides multiple layers
of protection between you and the cyber criminal.
