It’s Time for a Better Approach to CyberSecurity

Protecting critical information assets requires a proven, systematic and comprehensive approach.

With IP Services’ proven best practices approach to cybersecurity we protect your information assets by strengthening your organization’s security posture, preventing attacks and mitigating risks.  It all adds up to assurance that your most critical data is safe and sound.  

We even wrote a book about it:  The VisibleOps Security Handbook.

IP Services’ unique and proven best practices portfolio of Managed CyberSecurity suites and services takes advantage of our quality control system, TotalControl™, and covers every aspect of cybersecurity from firewalls to vulnerability scanning, and from intrusion detection and prevention to DDoS Mitigation, but beyond those layers we also provide that holistic backstop few others can deliver which is the foundation of all our security offerings, the CyberSecurity Visibility Suite.

VisibleOps CyberSecurity Suite

IP Services offers a one-of-a-kind cybersecurity service that is based on a proven best practices framework and establishes visibility across your information systems into suspicious activity and any system configuration changes. This suite validates the integrity of actions taken and configuration changes made then correlates what is discovered into actionable reports about risks in the environment.

Because it collects information from key information systems, this suite delivers auditability and reporting that can be customized to your specific compliance requirements if desired, and upon a best practices cybersecurity management framework.

By combining File Integrity Monitoring with Security Incident and Event Management, IP Services is able to validate the integrity of your systems and correlate breach attempts to those things that have changed on your network, devices, and servers.  This provides a closed-loop security solution that is the backstop against potential breaches making this a very valuable service and the foundation of a robust cybersecurity program.


Perimeter Security and Unified Threat Management

Modern Perimeter Security is no longer only about keeping the bad guys out.  It also needs to prevent information from leaving in unauthorized ways.  Threats are constantly evolving and the technology and methods for thwarting them must also adapt to stay effective.  

IP Services Perimeter Security Services are comprehensive and include traditional services like Firewall and Intrusion Prevention Systems management, but that’s just where we get started.  Some of the modern approaches we have added to our portfolio are things like limiting what countries can send and receive data from your network, filtering undesired and harmful websites, and blocking unauthorized data transfer methods.  We perpetually train our staff on current threats and ensure we understand all the best ways to keep our clients information safe.

Server and Application Security

Most important data lives on Servers and in Applications.  It is common when evaluating client systems to find that Servers and Applications were never sufficiently hardened.  Even when systems started with appropriate security, often proper ongoing operational processes break down and leave Servers and Applications at risk for breach.

IP Services has spent years perfecting our Quality Control System, TotalControl™, which includes a set of closed-loop processes for ensuring we harden every system using the same solid methods and with the same rigor.  TotalControl™ also includes processes for ensuring systems continue to stay secure even as new threats and vulnerabilities emerge.

Virtual CISO

Every effective cybersecurity program begins with a strategy for aligning security posture with business priorities.  Our Virtual Chief Information Security Officers each have ten or more years of experience architecting and managing cybersecurity programs that protect the information assets businesses care about.    

IP Services’ Virtual CISOs evaluate and ensure existing security policies and controls that, if properly enacted will reasonably mitigate the risks of breach.  We will then build a road map and manage implementation and the ongoing operation of the appropriate processes to achieve the desired level of compliance.

Mail Security

Because of email’s ubiquitous use, the difficulty of securing and managing it properly is often overlooked until one or many security incidents affect it.  In other cases, zealous mail administrators often times make mail secure without consideration for the business’ needs which negatively impacts productivity.

IP Services provides our clients end-to-end mail security including things like reducing spam by as much as 99%, protecting from email viruses, and automatic encryption of mail that contains PHI, PII or Financial data. We understand the importance of reliable and secure delivery of email and know how to secure it properly without making it difficult to use.
