Our Managed Security Program is mandatory for all Quartet clients. We deliver much better service, at better rates, by making coverage mandatory. The Essentials Package can be overlaid on your existing security initiatives and is adequate for many organizations. The Professional Package is aimed at companies with higher risk exposure and/or higher compliance obligations. Our Customized Package is aimed at organizations (usually with internal IT staff) who require better reporting and greater monitoring coverage.

Our Managed Security Program has four pillars: 1. Internal Protection, 2. External Protection, 3. Monitoring and 4. Vulnerability Testing. Internal protection is a relatively new security imperative. Over 60% of all breaches now stem from employees. External security protection has evolved from firewall maintenance to include pre-emptive initiatives to stop attacks before they reach you. Monitoring must be comprehensive, but must not yield mountains of raw data. Monitoring must be 7×24 and the results must be interpreted. Vulnerability testing will be done on a semi-annual basis.

You can meet all your security responsibilities with our Managed Security Program.  We purchase enterprise grade tools, deploy them on a multi-tenant basis and manage them 7x24x365. Tools and reports are configured to your needs. Monitoring, remote service tools and technician dispatch enable rapid response. Monthly reports, documentation and vulnerability testing ensure compliance. We are security service experts leveraging economies of skill and scale. You get a comprehensive security program at a reasonable cost. Your risks are reduced, compliance obligations met and costs contained.

Intrigued?  The first step is scheduling a meeting. We will then assess your technical environment and prepare a 25 page report that ranks vulnerabilities on 18 different security aspects. We will build a security remediation budget with you and propose an implementation plan for our service. The report is free if you subscribe to our service. There is a nominal fee if you choose not to. A sample copy is available to download.
