Beyond the Essential Eight, Hood Sweeney Technology works with partners to provide the following protective safeguards that can enhance security and allow for fast detection and remediation:
- A Unified Threat Management device (UTM), which is mandatory, to secure the network perimeter and provide advanced firewall and traffic inspection in real time;
- Threat Detection and Response (TDR) from WatchGuard, is a powerful collection of advanced malware defense tools that correlate threat indicators from UTM appliances and Host Sensors to stop known, unknown and evasive malware threats;
- Security Awareness Training from Webroot, an education process that teaches employees about cybersecurity, IT best practices, and even regulatory compliance. A comprehensive security awareness program can train employees about a variety of IT issues; and
- Advanced Network Monitoring by Auvik, a cloud-based network management software alerts us about network issues before our clients so we can provide strategic guidance to ensure the network is fit for purpose and free from business risks.
