Managed Services: Reactive Vs Proactive Application Security

Managed services from RAVENii provide a proactive solution to application security that prevents security breaches before they happen. Many small business owners assume that they will not be targeted because of the size or nature of their business. Unfortunately, this is a dangerous assumption. 

No One Is Safe

Big businesses and government or educational organizations may be the most lucrative targets, but they’re also the most challenging. Cybercriminals love an easy target, and they optimize their strategies to take advantage of small businesses with a lot to lose and little protection.

The reality is that organizations of all sizes and types are being targeted every day, and anyone who doesn’t take proactive precautions isn’t safe. Any company can easily be extorted by exposing employee data, client lists or customer credit cards, addresses, or other sensitive data.

Would-be hackers tend to move on to easier targets when they encounter major obstacles, so even rudimentary application security is better than nothing. Cybercriminals are constantly learning new techniques and changing tactics though, so proactive defense strategies are critical.

Traditional firewall and antivirus applications are no longer adequate to protect from a modern cyberattack. If your organization is targeted, they will eventually find a way in. The best offense is having a thoughtful & strategic suite of proactive security policies, tools, and processes in place. The best defense is to focus your efforts on preventing hackers from being able to move around and gain access to any of your data with a strong incident response plan. An MSSP like RAVENii covers both.

Managed Services From RAVENii

It is absolutely imperative to be proactive with your cybersecurity strategy. Response-only is not a strategy so much as gambling with terrible odds. Do not fall into the trap of believing that your business is too small to be targeted, because the risk is actually quite high for small businesses. 

The simple truth is that if your business is connected to the internet, you need managed services. The good news is that even a modest investment can give you a lot of protection

RAVENii offers 24X7 Network Detection & Response of your network. Our platform utilizes context-aware AI, a dynamic network baselining technology that allows us to identify pre-attack behavior and stop attacks before they happen. 

A full baseline of your typical network behavior can be created in just 7 days. This allows us to see your entire attack surface. Having this greater transparency allows for faster detections, better correlation, and less noise so you can focus on what matters. The AI functionality eliminates 95% of the false-positive alerts that typically send IT teams down the wrong track. The value to you is real and actionable threats to focus on, not distractions and wild goose chases.

RAVENii will monitor all of your network traffic, incoming, outgoing, and local in the cloud, on-premise, or in hybrid environments. With full layer 2-7 visibility, full packet capture, and deep packet inspection, we can give you the visibility you need to see and take action before damage is done.
