Boost Office Security Through Managed IT Services in Atlanta

The volume and variety of security threats in your office cannot be overestimated. In fact, the vulnerabilities faced by most companies are often underestimated, until it’s too late. Fortunately, with a raft of managed services available that cater specifically to the needs of office security, a managed IT services provider in Atlanta can help protect you and your colleagues.

The Security Tripod

A tripod is a three-legged device that provides a base for equipment. The tripod design is inherently stable and strong. Securing your systems against unwanted access to data and systems is best constructed along the same lines.

The three-legged approach to your IT security covers:

  • Threat management
  • Vulnerability management
  • Incident response

Threat Management

Threat management is an over-arching approach to management of all areas of security threats in your office IT. Potential and real threats are identified. Spam, malware, unauthorized systems access, device security, and data integrity are just some of the threat vectors that are considered. Policies, strategies, and technologies are defined and implemented as needed to manage the threats.

Vulnerability Management

Vulnerability management is the repeated (cyclical) process of identifying, classifying, fixing, and mitigating (the effects of) vulnerabilities in IT systems. In fact, it need not be IT systems. To be truly effective, IT and technology security must also consider areas such as social engineering, telephone protocol, and document tracking and storage. Regular reviews, together with managed IT services in Atlanta, identify any new or existing vulnerabilities. These are then remediated or mitigated.

Incident Response

Before incidents occur, organized approaches to identifying and addressed incidents need to be defined. Breaches of security or even just protocol must be fixed, and any effects of the breach or cyberattack have to be handled in a way that limits any damage (including possible negative PR). The goal is to reduce the costs and time involved in the recovery. Feedback from incidents is then used to inform the threat and vulnerability management areas, as well as incident response policies.

Proactive Monitoring

The beauty of today’s managed security services is that sophisticated monitoring tools allow for efficient and timely flagging up of potential issues or developing problems. Long before issues can become full-blown incidents, proactive monitoring triggers alerts. Remediation can be implemented faster, reducing or eliminating the cost of time and money from handling an incident.
