Cybersecurity can be confusing and overwhelming, but it is essential for every business. At CTS, we’ve developed a proven and cost-effective cybersecurity strategy for any business that actually works!

As seen in the news every single day… cyber attacks are real and they are only going to increase as artificial intelligence (AI) enables the malicious actors to create more sophisticated attacks. And the worst part is that they are specifically targeting small and midsized businesses (SMBs) knowing that their cyber defenses may not be ready for the daily assault.

All organizations need to have a comprehensive cybersecurity plan and it NEEDS to be more than just a “good” firewall and anti-virus. Most businesses are not sure what solutions are needed or what level of protection they need, because there are other factors that play into these decisions, such as budgets. CTS has effective cybersecurity solutions that are designed for every business regardless of industry or resources.

Some of our proven cybersecurity solutions are:

  • Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)
  • Security Operations Center (SOC)
  • Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR)
  • Threat Detection for all systems, including Microsoft 365 and other cloud solutions
  • Written incident response procedure and testing
  • Dark Web Monitoring
  • Security Awareness Training

Consider the following statistics when thinking about whether you need Cybersecurity protection for your business:

  • An average of 26,000 Cybersecurity attacks occur each day according to Forbes.
  • Comptia reports that the United States remains the most highly targeted country with 46% of all cyberattacks targeting Americans.
  • According to Cybersecurity Ventures, over 50% of all cyberattacks target small to medium sized businesses (SMBs).
  • Aside from costs a business may need to pay those behind a Cybersecurity attack to get their data back, there are other significant costs a business may incur:
    • Between the 1st quarter of 2020 and the 3rd quarter of 2021, Statista reported that the average duration of downtime after a ransomware attack increased from 15 to 22 days.
    • A survey conducted by PricewaterhouseCoopers found that 87% of consumers consider changing who they conduct business with when a cyberattack occurs.
    • Over 60% of SMBs that encounter a cyberattack, go out of business within 6 months according to Cybersecurity Ventures.

Can your business afford to take a chance on not having proper Cybersecurity protection in place?

If still unsure, consider the following example:

  • Business XYZ has 30 employees whose average annual salary and benefits package is $58,500 per employee, monthly operating and marketing costs of $6,500, and $4.8 million in gross sales. If this business encounters a Cybersecurity attack and loses just one day of business as a result, the cost is estimated to be at least $27,023!  As previously shared, customer trust and their business reputation are also likely jeopardized, and this is at a cost that could be indefinite.

At Computing Technology Solutions (CTS), we support a diverse number of businesses by being their Cybersecurity partner.  We perform a risk assessment with every new client that allows us to help understand where they have exposure to potential attackers. With this assessment and our comprehensive security stack, we implement solutions that match the needs of each business.

What is Open MXDR?

Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR) is a vendor-agnostic XDR solution that consolidates multiple security products into a single platform to better correlate, detect, and respond to threats. This centralized platform empowers security teams to identify threats and breaches and provides context around incidents that can bolster and speed up response and remediation quicker and easier.

The CTS MXDR delivers powerful open extended detection and response (Open XDR) for end-to-end cybersecurity solutions. Cybercrime is rampant and businesses are demanding more from their security providers. Cloud adoption and work from home or anywhere – on any device – are blurring infrastructure boundaries and creating an ever-expanding surface for cyberattacks. CTS MXDR condenses the entire surface into an intelligent, manageable stream for more robust security, better threat identification and faster responses.

CTS MXDR is a turnkey solution built from best-in-class technologies and a best practices security framework from the CTS Cybersecurity team. It’s an integral part of our managed cybersecurity services suite, delivering Al-powered Open XDR solutions from our market-leading team and tools in our 24/7 Security Operations Center (SOC).

CTS MXDR Platform Features

  • Comprehensive, automatic sensor-based data collection
  • Physical (on-premises) and cloud visibility
  • Integrated IDS/IPS paired with Al to reduce false positives
  • 50,000+ detections for known and unknown behaviors mapped to the cybersecurity kill chain
  • Advanced analytics and data-lake mining
  • Built-in event-response and case-management capabilities
  • Monthly reporting on activities
