How Does Elite IT Security Support Help?
Security can’t be a one-time event. Instead, IT security requires ongoing attention and investment. When government and public sector organizations use third-party support from a qualified provider like SkyCom, they tap into a degree of comfort that lets them operate with confidence.
SkyCom’s IT networking and unified communications and collaboration (UCC) solutions are backed by rock-solid network security. Our up-to-date IT service management ensures our tools and software solutions are safeguarded against the most current cyber threats. Below is a list of several of our top IT security features.
Security Governance Design
Organization and structure are vital to preserving the integrity of an IT network. One of SkyCom’s top priorities is establishing a secure governance design to manage your organization’s data and digital interactions.
Security Policy Framework
Along with a thoughtful initial design, SkyCom documents our unique IT security solutions for each client. This step creates a recorded process that can clarify procedures and policies for IT security within an organization in perpetuity.
In cybersecurity, a multi-layered approach has become a necessity. SkyCom utilizes:
- Next-generation firewalls (NGFW) for bleeding edge protection
- Unified threat management (UTM) for consolidated security management
- Intrusion protection systems (IPS) and intrusion detection systems (IDS) to perpetually watch over your network
This stratified approach provides the best security assurances possible.
SOC Planning and Design
Larger entities, especially healthcare, government, SLED, and other public sector organizations, require their own security operations centers or SOCs. SkyCom oversees the planning and designing of high-quality, cutting-edge SOCs that address each client’s unique security needs.
SOCs must operate efficiently and effectively to have an impact. SkyCom’s IT experts ensure that your organization’s SOC can perform at a high level.
SkyCom also helps with hiring capable individuals to staff your SOC, assisting in the vetting and discovery of employees who are skilled, able to learn, and trustworthy.
Never work with a third-party IT service if they can’t back up their claims with a solid track record. SkyCom has numerous examples of our IT security prowess across our decades of experience providing UCC and IT services, specifically within the Federal Government.
One excellent example is our ongoing support within a department of the military with 8,000 users across 15 locations. Along with a myriad of additional IT and communications services, SkyCom has spent years investing in this agency’s IT security.
Our team has coordinated the configuration of firewalls and additional network security infrastructure for VoIP deployment. We have also consistently reviewed VoIP infrastructure and recommended improvements to ensure data security configuration and management.
IT security safeguards a computerized system from external threats. In essence, IT security is the digital “moat” around the IT “castle.”
