As reported attacks on business and government are soaring, compliance requirements regarding data security are increasing in complexity. And with small and mid-sized organizations frequently lacking the resources to deal adequately with information security, a Southeastern technology firm has begun offering a suite of affordable and rapidly deployable Fortune 500-class security solutions to secure networks and ensure corporate compliance of organizations from 20 up to 1000 users.
The newly launched EDTS T.R.U.E. Security Advantage portfolio of products can be tailored to any industry or organization, notes EDTS CEO Charles Johnson, but was designed specifically for the complex compliance needs of a handful of heavily regulated industries. The versatile products are designed to meet HIPAA and HITECH compliance requirements of the healthcare industry, PCI-DSS demands of the retail segment, Sarbanes-Oxley and GLB legislation governing financial services, and both FISMA and NIST regulations impacting local governments.
“By combining best-in-class security technologies with the experience of our professionally trained and certified staff, EDTS now offers a portfolio of security services that meet the needs of any size organization,”
Depending on the needs of the organization, the T.R.U.E. Security Advantage portfolio of services can either complement an in-house security capability or replace it entirely. Extensively researched and carefully developed, this solution ensures the highest levels of protection and service. A typical engagement begins by conducting a vulnerability assessment and network integrity evaluation that includes network penetration testing, threat modeling, and compliance gap analysis.
Once threats are identified, organizations can then partake in as much – or as little – support and remediation as they desire to secure their networks, says Johnson.
“The security offerings are extensive, including live 24/7/365 real-time security incident monitoring and response, firewall management, mobile device management, web security, a comprehensive email protection suite, managed applications and more,” says Johnson. “We also provide comprehensive disaster recovery and business continuity capabilities, secure cloud computing, and total network management.”
EDTS, which specializes in network security, managed IT services, and advanced infrastructure for Southeastern businesses, is among the most honored technology companies in the Southeast. With more than 50 professionals serving clients from offices in Augusta, GA and Greenville and Columbia, SC the EDTS team holds the highest and most comprehensive certifications in the industry. The company was recently named to the Inc. 5000 List of Fastest Growing Companies in America for the fourth consecutive year, ranked #121 in the world among managed IT providers on the MSPmentor 501 global list, has obtained the CompTIA Security Trustmark verified level, and has been among South Carolina’s fastest-growing companies the last two years.
“Whether organizations prefer an a la carte approach to the security solutions they need, or prefer a more comprehensive suite of integrated offerings tailored to their unique compliance requirements, we’re now able to bring these best-of-breed technologies to them in an affordable monthly subscription fee,” said Johnson. “We know the bad guys are always out there looking for vulnerabilities to exploit, and I am proud that EDTS offers the team, technology and custom solutions to help protect our clients from these growing threats.”
