Comprehensive Security and Risk Analysis

Your network connects your users, systems, and data to the outside world. You write policies, train users and manage best-in-class security tools to protect your assets. Yet, there is a very good chance that something malicious is lurking within your network.

The source could be one of many hard-to-recognize threats: rogue applications, malicious viruses, misconfigured systems, unauthorized devices, user error, internal actors, or compromised credentials. They are all dangerous and easily missed by standard cybersecurity tools and point-in-time tests and scans.

To expose the threats, you need technology that digs deep into your network traffic and cybersecurity experts that are specially trained to recognize and investigate subtle unusual patterns.
