Administering and coordinating virus prevention and detection along with the ability to recover vital IT resources calls for an on-going campaign that entails a variety of technologies, procedures, and guidelines. Progent's CISM and CISA-qualified security consultants can help you in your efforts to protect your information system by providing consulting services ranging from security audits to developing and implementing a comprehensive security plan.

Security Assessments
Progent's certified security consultants can perform extensive audits on your Mac OS X environment by detecting outdated or missing security patches, security holes, needlessly open ports, abandoned accounts, and password policy. During a security assessment, Progent can also make a detailed inventory of your company's network, uncover hidden Trojans on servers and workstations, and find out whether the operating system is disclosing too much information.

Preventive Measures
Progent can advise you concerning ways to design security into your business operations.

Progent's security consultants are ready to help you to configure a firewall, facilitate protected offsite access to email, files and programs, and implement virtual private networks.

Disaster Recovery and Virus Removal
Progent has experience in recovering computers that have been compromised, are suspect, or have failed as a result of a security breach.

Security Strategy
Every company should have a seriously crafted security strategy that incorporates both proactive and response procedures. The proactive or defensive plan is a collection of mechanisms designed to minimize exposure. The reactive or post-attack strategy enables security personnel to evaluate the impact of an attack, repair any damage, document the event, and get business operations back on line as quickly as possible.
