Network & Data Security
Good network security is integral to maintaining the integrity of your data and your network. In many cases your sensitive data can cost thousands, even millions of dollars, per breach. At Alliance Technologies, we’re serious about security. We aim to provide a variety of solutions to both big and small clients alike, so you can rest easy knowing that we’ll be able to find the right security solution for your network.
How we do Security
Alliance Technologies focuses on keeping up to date with state of the art security solutions. When building a security solution for your data and your network, we’ll sit down with you to talk about the specific needs of your business. We’ll build a security profile that takes into account all foreseeable security threats so we’re sure we fully understand how you use your network and your data before we begin drafting a solution that’s right for you.
Security Solution Diversity
At Alliance Technologies, we do our best to be solution agnostic. We don’t advocate one singular solution or one specific company because we know that every business is different and handling those differences require a whole toolbox full of great partnerships, products, and solutions..
Good security isn’t just about installing a firewall on your network, or installing anti-virus software on your computers. Good security is built through a multifaceted strategy that synergizes a strong diversity of security solutions in a variety of places. Examples of our expertise includes:
- Anti-virus software and Spam filtering
- Assessments & Audits
- Compliance consulting
- Application control
- Behavior based profiling
- Content filtering
- Data packet protection
We have experience working with businesses in many different industries, including healthcare, legal and financial services. We can provide consulting services and advise companies around regulations for HIPAA / HITECH, Sarbanes–Oxley (SOX), GLB and PCI.
Finding the right Security Solution for Your Business
Our number one goal, in every aspect of our business, is customer satisfaction. We aim to provide a trusted advisor relation to all our clients. That means we don’t oversell solutions that clients don’t need, and we don’t try to push solutions on clients that aren’t right for them. When building a security solution for your data and your network, we’ll sit down with you to talk about the specific needs of your business. We’ll build a security profile that takes into account all foreseeable security vectors so we’re sure we fully understand how you use your network and your data before we begin drafting a solution that’s right for you.
Managed End Point Security
You can waste a lot of resources complying with regulations and often when you’re finally done, you find that while you’ve checked a lot of checkboxes, you haven’t actually improved your security. However, proactively meeting regulations can help to merge into the overall security strategy for your business, rather than something tacked on after the fact. Consultation with an outside expert should be an integral part of your compliance strategy.
Unified Threat Management (UTM) undertakes all the security monitoring and management tasks on your firewall security appliance and includes them under one security umbrella. Grouping these services together saves your business money and ensures a unified security ecosystem managed by a team of security experts, assuring quality and consistent results at an affordable price.
Where is your data? It's impossible to keep track of everything all the time. In addition to accidental data loss, theft of laptops, media and even servers is on the rise. The best way to protect yourself is with disk encryption.
Network Logging and Monitoring
According to the 2010 Verizon Breach Report* 86% of security breaches can be detected in application and system logs. However, most logs are not monitored properly so security incidents may go unnoticed for months. Logging alone is not enough to prevent breaches. The logs must be reliably monitored in order to identity attacks.
Keeping abreast of all the patches and updates needed to keep a network secure can easily turn into a fulltime concern unless some type of patch management system is utilized. Not only does a patch management system take much of the burden off your IT staff, it also ensures that patches are applied regularly, consistently, and in a timely manner.
Web filtering allows your business to block websites from being accessed by systems on your network. This is commonly used to block sites that are known to be malicious as well as those with adult content, financial risk and that hamper productivity. Since most network attacks originate on and involve the web in some form, it's best to control access to the internet and reduce the risk of a web-based attack.
