Cybersecurity & Compliance
Having Trouble Navigating the Cybersecurity Marketplace? We can help!
SECURITY ARCHITECTURE & ENGINEERING
Whether it is securing endpoints and hybrid datacenters; or strategically placing vitual and physical network devices to monitor ports and email boxes for spam, phishing, or malware; to network firewalls and Intrusion Detection and Prevention Systems (IDS/IPS); and implementing SIEM for enterprise-wide visibility so that the actionable intelligence is available to analysts and engineers, our extensive experience and product specific expertise ensures that your IT Architecture has the latest Enterprise-Level Cybersecurity.
SECURITY GOVERNANCE & COMPLIANCE
It is a common misconception, especially in the C level suites, that the corporate or government networks and sensitive data can be protected by simply deploying firewalls and anti-virus solutions. The Anti-virus software, patching program, encryption, and firewalls are indeed part of a powerful intrusion prevention program, but these solutions are static preventative defenses. The cyberattacks are increasingly stealthy, persistent and audacious. In order to protect systems from such cyberattacks a good defense-in-depth strategy need to be employed to reduce risk, ensure compliance, and maximize return on investment. We at XentIT, provide security program review and analysis, and the security program management to ensure that you have the best strategy that employs both reactive and proactive mechanisms for the security of IT environments that are also compliant with FISMA, FedRAMP, HIPAA and PCI-DSS regulations.
Vulnerabilities pose a threat to systems because they can be exploited causing financial and reputational loss. The loss of reputation as it pertains to customers and employees is the ultimate loss for an organization. This loss directly correlates with the profit and loss (P & L). Proactive Security is no longer an “IT problem”. It is a business requirement. The proactive security starts with the understanding and tackling of the vulnerabilities of the systems. The vulnerabilities can be thought of as weaknesses or lapses that expose the systems to the risk of attack. The security assessments identify the weaknesses in the systems that can be used to deploy security measures to improve the security posture of the organization.
Security Assessment is a 4-step process:
- Scope: Determine the systems to be assessed.
- Focus: Assign value and importance to the identified assets.
- Assess: Identify vulnerabilities.
- Respond: Prioritize and mitigate/eliminate the vulnerabilities.
We at XentIT, may include the following techniques in the technical security assessments: Network Scanning, Vulnerability Scanning, Password Cracking, Log Review, Integrity Checking, Antivirus measures, War Dialing, War Driving, Penetration Testing, and Social Engineering.
FedRAMP ADVISORY SERVICES
The Federal Risk and Authorization Management Program (FedRAMP) is a government-wide program that sets the standards for any federal agency to work with cloud products or services. Are you a Cloud Service Provider (CSP) looking to work with the government to modernize their IT? Then you need a FedRAMP ATO. Our FedRAMP advisory services assist you with the system architecture review and security control implementation documentation. We also develop the system security plan (SSP), policies & procedures, Security Assessment Plan (SAP), Security Assessment Report (SAR), and recommendations for authorization.
As part of continuous monitoring which is a requirement to maintain the ATO, we can assist with any monthly, quarterly, or annual monitoring requirements.
