Qualifications & Associations
Agio provides managed IT and cybersecurity services to firms at every stage, including technology hosting, monitoring, management, disaster prevention and recovery, managed security, cybersecurity consulting, and other high-end services.
Maintaining an effective security program requires diligence, focus, and a keen eye towards an ever-evolving threat landscape. Critical vulnerabilities are constantly being discovered, making day-to-day management of your security controls a must. Failure to detect and recognize malicious activity in your environment places your organization’s data and reputation at risk, not to mention the intellectual property loss, as well as operational, financial and legal risk you may face when dealing with a breach.
To assist our clients with what can sometimes seem like an insurmountable task, Agio’s Managed Security proactively monitors your environment 24x7x365 to help you create and maintain a strong security posture. With a focus on detection and response, Agio’s trained eyes examine key systems within your environment as we perform continuous vulnerability, suspicious activity and threat-based awareness assessments, in addition to providing security advisory and actionable intelligence. Partnering with Agio to maintain these essential elements of security can mean the difference between a security threat and a security breach.
Agio Managed Security provides these key features:
INTRUSION DETECTION ANALYSIS | By leveraging best-in-breed industry technology, coupled with Agio’s customization, we defend against ever-evolving, sophisticated evasion techniques, even when they are applied on multiple protocol levels. We install agents on all of your servers to analyze malicious traffic, not just externally, but within your environment as well. With 60% of all attacks being carried out by insiders, this hybrid internal and external view is crucial.
SECURITY INFORMATION & EVENT MANAGEMENT | Agio Managed
Security uses a discovery-driven approach designed to prevent future security blind spots, adding user, application, and business service context to events. We provide unparalleled threat monitoring, prioritization, and mitigation responses, leveraging log collection data from security devices, network devices, Active Directory, and applications, to cross-correlate security event data in real time, while weaving a sophisticated security event management service throughout the entire solution.
VULNERABILITY MANAGEMENT | This automated service scans networkassets for vulnerabilities on a daily basis to clearly identify potential areas of exploitation and increased security risk.
HUMAN ELEMENT (+REPORTING) | Backed by the latest security technology, our experienced
security engineers continuously analyze anomalies in your environment, looking for trends specific to your industry, while keeping up to date on threat intelligence feeds. What’s more, we regularly meet with you to review your monthly posture report and the overall health of your security posture; and when we’re not meeting with you, you have full access to our reporting platform that allows you to view your environment at any time. This combination of visibility and proactive communication is what sets us apart. We’re providing you with insight, not just alerts.
In the security arena, deep expertise is more than just knowledge; it is equivalent to having intuition. It can mean the difference between recognizing patterns and overlooking them. Here's a window into our expertise:
Agio Incident Response is a planned program designed for the unplanned. Over the course of 12 months we onboard, organize, prep and continually test your ability to respond when a breach happens. We get, and keep you, battle-ready so when an attack happens, we mobilize immediately and effectively, neutralizing the threat and containing your exposure.
Here’s what the program includes:
o Environment Discovery
o Data Mapping
o Incident Response Plan Development & Review
- Incident Response Policy
- Data Classification Policy
- Incident Response Procedure
- Incident Response Communication-Chain of Command Procedure
o Tactical/Operational Incident Response Tabletop Exercise
Monthly Incident Response Readiness Review
Quarterly Status Review (monthly for first three months after going live)
o Intelligence Briefings
o Cybersecurity Events & Incidents Statistics Review
Annual Executive IR Tabletop Exercise
Incident Response Annual Review & Report
Red Team Security Assessment* (annually, if applicable)
It’s about practicing chaos. You’ll never be able to predict the specific type of breach your firm will ultimately fall victim to, but you can predict how you respond. And that response is comprised of the people you have in place, the processes you’ve implemented, and the technology that supports it all. How do these three facets interact with one another when tragedy strikes? Where are the loopholes, the gaps, and the ambiguity within your plan?
These are the details, when left undiscovered, unremediated and unrehearsed, create chaos on top of chaos for organizations.
We’re here to fix that. By proactively learning your environment, mapping what data lives where, reviewing your policies with a critical eye, and then practicing chaos, we improve your reaction to a breach. Your response goes from languid, haphazard and insufficient to immediate, efficient, and most importantly, effective.
It’s tempting to sit back and hope that a breach won’t happen. Or maybe when it does, that it’s not that bad. But when your company’s operations, reputation, and even your career are on the line, hope isn’t a strategy. Because even if the initial breach doesn’t bring down your environment, the longer the malicious activity goes undetected and unaddressed, the worse it gets. What may have started as a cybersecurity event, can quickly escalate to an incident and a full-blown breach.
TIME IS MONEY
Then there’s the financials. Bringing in an Incident Response team only after a breach guarantees one thing; you’re going to pay. Why? Because the firm you bring in, even if they’re the best, doesn’t know your environment. They don’t know where your data lives; they don’t know how you collect and store that data (for analysis); they don’t know your policies; and they don’t know who’s involved in your Incident Response Plan. They’re flying blind, and it’s going to take them time to get up to speed. That’s time you’re paying for, and even more importantly, that’s time in which the breach is getting worse.
By investing in an Incident Response service, proactively, you drastically reduce your time to resolution, which means less money out the door, less exposure and ultimately less damage. And you look good for preparing for the inevitable. You took chaos, mapped it, prepared for it, and even amortized it (i.e the cost). Well played.
