Rochester, N.Y. — With ransomware attacks occurring every 14 seconds, it’s not a matter of “if” a company will be hacked, it’s a matter of “when.” To address this concerning and immediate need, iV4, an IT consulting and services provider headquartered in Rochester, has launched a new Security Managed Services offering for its current and prospective clients in the Upstate New York and Northeast markets.
The October 1 launch is timely and strategic as this month marks National Cybersecurity Awareness Month.
The new Security Managed IT Solutions puts multiple defenses between corporate assets and hackers by establishing a secure modern perimeter of continuously managed security controls. The goal of Security Managed IT Solutions is to shorten the time it takes to detect malicious activity on a company’s network, so damage is controlled and business will not be interrupted.
This is the first service of its kind in the local marketplace. It’s geared toward mid-sized companies with 75+ employees in the legal, finance and banking, power and utilities, manufacturing, not-for-profit, health care and professional services industries.
“Navigating the new IT landscape can be challenging, but it doesn’t have to be,” said Michael Spoont, CEO of iV4. “Cybersecurity cannot be an afterthought today. It must be a foundational propriety for every business. Our team at iV4 will protect against, detect and respond to security threats on our customer’s behalf so they can focus on achieving their business goals and getting work done without worrying about the turbulent cyber landscape and serious risks it poses for their business.”
There are a variety of Security Managed IT Solutions plan options, ranging from Vulnerability Management and Incident Response to Cloud-Based Identity and Access Management, and Security Awareness Training.
“If you’ve experienced a security incident or event and are now in need of security, we’re eager to support you,” Spoont said. “This service is intended for organizations that face regulatory requirements and deal with confidential data, like health care, banking, higher education and proprietary information. Ultimately, we will work with you if you need greater security but don’t have the expertise on staff to do it.”
iV4 will host two free webinars this month for business leaders and IT professional interested in learning more. The webinar at 11 a.m. Oct. 17 will be a high-level overview explaining the program’s business case and the second webinar at 11 a.m. Oct. 31 will provide IT experts with an in-depth look at the technologies and licensing this new offering uses.
