EiQ Networks Offers To Help Organizations Assess Cyber Defense ReadinessDeveloped to provide organizations a preliminary assessment report of whether security gaps exist in their networks and systems
Acton, Mass., November 6, 2013 – EiQ Networks, a pioneer in simplified security, risk and compliance solutions, today announced the availability of a new offering to help organizations assess their cyber defense readiness. The Cyber Defense Readiness offering was developed to provide organizations a preliminary assessment report of whether security gaps exist in their network and systems.
Increasingly organizations of all sizes are becoming victims of cyber attacks on a daily basis. A majority of breaches go undetected due to the complexities involved in analyzing all security data across IT assets, inadequate security controls, and lack of actionable and timely security intelligence. According to a recent Ponemon study, it takes an average of 80 days for a company to discover a malicious breach and another four months to resolve it. Per Ernest &Young 2013 global information security survey organizations throughout the world continue to struggle to hire enough qualified staff to help ensure adequate cybersecurity. This lack of trained cyber security staff, coupled with antiquated compliance dominated security programs, and technologies, and the fact that it is becoming increasingly easier for hackers to attack corporate networks with new and sophisticated hacker tools, it is no wonder organizations of all sizes are exposed to cyber criminals and attacks. The 2013 Verizon DBIR illustrates that both large and SMB companies are equally prone to a cyber attack.
EiQ's Cyber Defense Readiness offering is based on the three critical pillars of a sound security program. Namely:
• Process: A set of processes and best practices developed and implemented based on industry standards such as SANS 20 Critical Security Controls
• Technology: A set of tools that provide immediate and comprehensive visibility into the "Threat" by utilizing Unified Situational Awareness that removes data silos and connect all the dots
• People: Trained, experienced Information Security professionals that monitor and assess an IT infrastructure 24 x7
By combining all three pillars, EiQ is able to deliver to an independent assessment of an organization's cyber defense readiness in an easy to view report.
"Companies require a holistic view of their security posture, but often times do not have enough qualified security professionals on staff or well-defined best practices based security program in place to help with cyber defenses," said Rob Aragao, vice president, services at EiQ Networks. "This offering provides an independent audit of their cyber defense readiness and it can be accomplished relatively quickly."
