When our team at Haystax Technology first starts working with a company, organization, business or government agency our first task is to analyze and assess the current network and security systems in place. For many of our clients, including major government projects, the current security doesn’t feature multi-layer cybersecurity options, instead it uses a tools based approach. While there is nothing wrong with using specific tools to assess specific risks or vulnerabilities within a network or system, at Haystax we believe a multi-layer cybersecurity approach is the most effective. It not only allows our customers to take full advantage of our Haystax analytics to determine risk threats in various environments, but it also provides a continue end-to-end process uniquely developed for a specific system. The Process The process by which we develop a cybersecurity system has several distinct steps. However, each of the multi-layer cybersecurity systems we develop all start with the same general concepts. These include effective design and management of the system including full evaluations, from the technical and non-technical security features, as well as full certification and accreditation as required. We provide full malware analysis expertise, forensics and real-time notification of issues within the system. Compliance and vulnerability management are included in the full array of services we provide. With these features we are able to monitor, assess and secure all IT environments from both external threats as well as those originating from the inside of the network. Threat Assessment While part of a multi-layer cybersecurity system is certainly to have a pre-determined plan of action when there is an identified threat, it is also to help to prevent these threats and minimize overall system risk. With full risk analysis features in place and reporting in real time, threat management is clear and data driven. This allows the management team or security experts to make informed, educated decisions about when and how to act and react. It also ensures vulnerabilities are addressed before they are exploited, limiting the very real risk these security gaps create within the network. Ongoing system assessment allows for greater understanding of threats, limiting the vulnerabilities within the system, and focussing attention on ongoing and consistent regulatory compliance within the network. This last piece is essential for many of our current customers in the public and private sector. Our programs and systems are able to meet or exceed regulations and directives including those required by the United States Department of Defense, the Federal Information Security Management Act and the National Institute of Standards and Technology 800 Series to name just a few.
