Risk Management

Risk is more than just compliance and loss mitigation. Risk intelligence is now used to unlock value and opportunity across an organization. With powerful analytics and business solutions, our services can help your company manage risk and meet the increasing demand for regulatory compliance.

We have proprietary products to manage and record security risk calls:

  • Vulnerability Management System: Provide risk rating and priority to work on risks.
  • ARM: It’s a full-fledged security tool for Access, Remediate and Mitigate risk on priority basis.

Our Risk Assessment starts with a detailed analysis of the client site or sites to identify unique vulnerabilities. This information is then used to prioritize risks and develop customized, data-driven security solutions.

We gain insight as to where our clients may have concerns and improve upon their security operations and procedures. The Risk Assessment allows for:

  • A shift in focus from service replacement to service enhancement
  • Recommendations that more effectively assist with reducing risk and liability
  • Increased client satisfaction
  • Full transparency in all aspects of the security operation
  • Demonstrations of our core value of Integrity

The following is a list of practice for the maintenance of data integrity:

Payment Card Industry- Data Security Standard

We provide PCI DSS compliance management by assessing and addressing your compliance requirements to make your business secure and less hospitable to attackers.

Separate Web and Database Servers

We Isolate database servers, particularly those containing sensitive information, from a website’s demilitarized zone (DMZ) and locate them on a physically separate network segment of the web and other internet-accessible servers that support your business.

Disable and Secure Unnecessary Network Services

Database software, like most operating systems and complex applications, provides a number of services that allow remote system management, distributed processing, and other network-related functions. In many cases, these services are enabled by default and are often ‘protected’ by using either no password or a vendor-supplied default password.

Eliminate Known Security Vulnerabilities

As with applications and operating systems, database servers can also have vulnerabilities that lead to unauthorized data access, loss of integrity, or total system compromise. To minimize the impact of vulnerabilities, we keep your systems secured and up-to-date with updated security patches.
