IT solutions provider Cosentry has debuted a suite of fresh managed security and compliance services, designed to address the security concerns of transitioning data and applications to cloud or colocation environments, while also alleviating the IT burden of maintaining adherence to government and industry data storage and processing regulations.
The services are meant to go beyond typical firewall monitoring, by providing market-leading security tools with the benefit of integrated security operations center (SOC) services, such as patch management, 24×7 log monitoring and alert notifications. The portfolio includes: network security (firewall management, VPN services); server security (antivirus, intrusion detection/prevention); and advanced services (vulnerability management, penetration testing & log monitoring).
“Hackers are getting more sophisticated with their attacks and companies often find themselves ill prepared to respond against botnets, malware and other threats that constantly plague the IT infrastructure,” said Brad Hokamp, CEO at Cosentry. “Using round-the-clock IDS/IPS log and vulnerability monitoring, Cosentry’s managed security service removes the complexity and cost associated with onsite hardware/software deployment and management while also providing the industry’s best IT security professionals to monitor for breaches and alert customers to potential threats.”
Cosentry also offers a suite of cloud-based compliance services to ensure that the IT cloud infrastructure supporting your critical data and applications meet and maintain strict industry and regulatory compliance mandates, such as: HIPAA, PCI, SSAE16, NIST and FISCAM.
“Achieving, maintaining and demonstrating IT compliance has always been a time-consuming process that pulls the IT staff away from revenue-generating projects,” said Craig Hurley, vice president of product management at Cosentry. “Our managed compliance service assumes the IT-related responsibilities for adherence while also helping to ensure data meets the most current industry standards or government regulations. Cosentry is especially seeing a growing demand in the healthcare market, where companies are exposed to significant fines for not maintaining HIPAA compliancy to protect patient records. We are confident our comprehensive compliance services will ensure they are meeting the core compliance requirements and more importantly, provide the security capabilities to prevent data theft.”
