Modern technology enables businesses and people to connect seamlessly across the world. It also increases the risk to people and data when not properly secured or implemented. As teams and resources become more distributed, cybersecurity programs require strategic investment across several key areas.
A strong program can ensure your people and data remain securely connected, accessible, and protected.
Simply placing data in the cloud does not automatically make it secure. We can help your organization migrate to a new cloud environment or create more security in your existing cloud environment using a process that prioritizes finding the best solution to match your business needs.
We take a proactive approach to cybersecurity, working with you to design or mature your network infrastructure. A well-designed network mitigates risk and minimizes unnecessary points of exposure.
When assessing the strength of your system, network, or application, we perform a thorough evaluation of the current infrastructure and its capabilities. We then deliver our findings in a vulnerability report that identifies potential risks and security flaws.
We implement and manage identity & access management systems, including overseeing the access and governance of identities within a network.

PERFORMANCE TUNING AN ENTERPRISE NETWORK
Problem: Their increasing network traffic was resulting in out-of-balance utilization across system resources and significant decreases in performance across the network. So they began upgrading the aging F5 load balancers with new, more powerful models. However, the upgrade had to be rolled back only a few hours after the initial implementation, because the load balancers had lost connectivity to the real servers that made up the pool for the virtual servers.
Solution: Our consultants helped identify the source of the issue by working closely with the vendors to troubleshoot the problem. As a result of this work, network traffic is now being processed efficiently and the load on network and systems resources is spread evenly, which has brought performance back to optimal levels and reduced the amount of pressure on individual network components.
Problem: The Compliance and Security (C&S) team within AI&R did not have an existing penetration testing capability for applications or web services deemed in-scope when performing security reviews.
Solution: We partnered with the C&S team and helped determine the best approach to testing different applications and services. The AI&R organization now has a security sign-off for an application or service that indicates that it has been penetration-tested.
All penetration testing of in-scope applications and services is completed internally within the AI&R team, resulting in less lead time, quicker turnaround, and reduced dependencies to complete testing.
