Fast and Affordable Security Checkups for Small Businesses
Is your small business network keeping pace with today's security environment? Are you protecting your network assets? How difficult would it be for a hacker to break into your information system, and what steps can you take to prevent it? Progent has developed a fast and affordable way for small businesses to answer these questions without disrupting their network operations.
Progent's Network Security Inventory packages are fixed-price service bundles that rely on advanced network scanning technology and the certified expertise of Progent's security engineers to evaluate the vulnerability of your network and provide recommendations for simple ways you can mitigate your security risk. Progent offers two packages, the External Network Security Inventory and the Internal Network Security Inventory, which assess different aspects of network security exposure and which you can use separately or together. Both packages offer features designed for the needs of small businesses who want to take a more proactive role in making their networks safe from malicious assaults but who donít have the time or the budget to manage an exhaustive enterprise-class network security audit.
Top Features and Benefits of Progent's Security Inventory Packages for Small Business Networks
Progent's Security Inventory packages offer an array of features and benefits especially designed to address today's increasingly hostile security environment in which all business networks operate but also to take into account the financial and operational realties of small companies. Implemented together or separately, Progent's External and Internal security scanning packages help small businesses achieve a high level of network protection at little cost or hassle.
External Security Inventory Scan
Progent's Network Security Inventory packages are inexpensive and are offered at a set-price, so you know in advance what it will cost to understand the state of your network security. Potential attack vectors detected by Progent's security scans are typically easy to fix and involve configuration issues with network operating systems, applications, and devices. If you have not regularly utilized security scans in the past, you get a lot of bang for your buck. Generally, a great deal of security risk associated with small business networks can be substantially reduced at very little expense.
The scanning, analysis, and reporting processes involved in Progent's Network Security Inventory packages can usually be completed in one business day. This fast turnaround can reduce the window during which your network is exposed to attack by allowing you to move quickly into remediation mode. This also reduces the stressful suspense management may feel not knowing whether information assets are safe, and minimizes the time that your network manager is diverted from other responsibilities. A combination of advanced scanning technology and experienced engineers allow Progent's security team to deliver results quickly and at low cost to the customer.
- Remote Scanning:
The scanning phase of Progent's Network Security Inventory packages are managed remotely from a secure Progent site. In the case of the Internal Network Security Inventory package, the scan is itself run from an onsite machine made available by the customer. The setup procedure for external or internal scans can accomplished in minutes, and the collected data is analyzed offsite by Progent's certified security professionals. By utilizing remote tools to conduct the Network Security Inventory packages, Progent saves significant time and money, which in turn allows Progent to offer these packages at prices that small businesses can afford.
Progent's Network Security Inventory packages are not intended to detect and remove viruses or other malware resulting from a successful attack on your network, but to uncover common security gaps before they are exploited by malicious sources. Although larger enterprises routinely utilize third-party consulting firms like Progent to conduct vulnerability scans in order to benefit from an objective risk assessment, small businesses with limited IT budgets and technical expertise often wait until their networks are hacked before getting serious about security. By offering vulnerability scanning packages that are fast, affordable, and effective, Progent makes it a no brainer for small businesses to take the lead in protecting their network assets.
- Certified Security Engineers:
Progent's security engineers have been certified by some of the industry's most prestigious standards institutions including the Information Systems Audit and Control Association (ISACA), the International Information Systems Security Certification Consortium (ISC), and the SANS Institute. Progent's security team has worked with major enterprises to assess and enhance network security. With Progent's Network Security Inventory packages, small businesses get the benefit of vulnerability assessments from world-class security professionals without requiring an enterprise-class IT budget.
Progent's security engineers are familiar with the sophisticated tools and techniques hackers employ to break into information networks to steal and control resources and data. The majority of these intrusion attempts are based on exploiting security gaps that are surprisingly easy to block. Both of Progent's Network Security Inventory packages address a separate range of potential security vulnerabilities often found in small business IT networks. Either package will provide information to help you enhance your network protection. Using the external and the internal scan packages together will allow you to secure your network even more.
- Actionable Reporting:
The data collected from Progent's Network Security Inventory scans are analyzed by a certified engineer on Progent's security team. As part of the package, Progent's security engineer will prepare and send a report that summarizes the results of the vulnerability scan and suggests mitigation procedures that can be performed by Progent, by your in-house IT support staff, or by a competent third-party security consulting firm. Any remedial work requested from Progent will be performed as a separate project for which Progent can provide a time estimate and for which Progent will bill at standard consulting rates.
Progent's External Network Security Inventory package tests for the threat levels of the open ports and services on your network that are exposed outside your firewall. These ports and services can include email, web sites, eCommerce applications, remote access tools, or any service that requires or is granted communication with the world beyond your firewall. This is a favorite hunting ground of hackers and, in many small businesses, a rich source of attack vectors.
Progent's security team will examine the scanned data, produce a report that summarizes and interprets the results, and make suggestions on efficient ways to reduce your exposure to attack. The external scan will not disrupt your ongoing network operations or noticeably impact your system performance. Progent offers this service package at a low set price that covers setup, scanning, analysis, reporting, and recommendations. The set price does not include remediation services which may be suggested. These follow-on services can be performed by any qualified security engineer and are available from Progent at standard consulting rates.
Internal Security Inventory Scan
Many security attacks originate from inside your company firewall and can be the result of careless employees who attach compromised laptops to your network, workers who try to access restricted information or gain unauthorized administration rights, or lurkers in close physical proximity to your wireless access points. Progent's Internal Network Security Inventory package tests for vulnerabilities within your firewall by looking for open ports and services that are not exposed to the outside world but that could be a source of trouble if improperly configured. The internal scan can be executed from any computer inside your security perimeter that you make temporarily available to Progent's security engineer. Progent will remotely download a virtual machine and the required scanning tools to the internal computer you have assigned, launch the scan, and transfer the collected data to a secure Progent site. Progent does not need to make an expensive onsite service call and the time required to install and subsequently remove the scanning software is negligible.
Progent's security engineer managing the Internal Security Inventory Scan will examine the scanned data and create a report that summarizes the results and suggests any mitigation measures that may be required. Progent offers this service package at a low set price that covers setup, scanning, analysis, reporting, and recommendations. The set price does not include remediation services which may be suggested. These follow-on services can be performed by any qualified security engineer and are available from Progent at standard consulting rates.
