Cyber Security Consulting - Get 24/7 Protection for Your Business

We all have to accept that the security landscape has changed dramatically over recent years. Cyber-attacks are becoming more pervasive and persistent, with an increase of overall incidents of 25% in the year 2021 . Please see the freely accessible Verizon Data Breach Investigations Report Here for statistics and more details.

Thankfully various vendors can guarantee security around the most common threats in the business landscape for an affordable rate. Therefore taking a preventive and progressive approach by engaging vendors who can provide security as a service can bring peace of mind. We engage our trusted partners in having a structured discussion around an organizations current security plan and assets.

During this process we ensure to discuss how endpoint detection and response (EDR), or managed detection and response (MDR), managed firewall, back-up solutions and staff education programs and more all can become a part of further securing your organization’s main office, remote workers and subsidiary offices alike.

In addition, an implementation plan will only be put into place after we have completed a thorough security assessment. Opt to stay ahead of the curve by partnering with expert vendors who extend your security operations to cover people, processes and technology with 24/7/365 support.

Ways we have helped clients…

A cybersecurity assessment is a risk assessment through which your organization’s cybersecurity controls and their ability to remediate vulnerabilities are analyzed. Through use of ethical hacking or a penetration test, your technology and your processes are tested to assess which controls are in place to safeguard against security threats.

Moreover, in contrast, a cybersecurity audit works with a checklist whereas a cyber security assessment is normally conducted within the context of your organization’s business objectives.

FCX has partnered with various providers who are experts at assessing LAN/WAN/Endpoint strengths and weaknesses. This helps businesses determine what security solutions will be the best fit for their organization.

Cloud storage involves saving data on hardware in a remote physical
location, which can be accessed from any device via the internet.
Users send files to a data server maintained by a cloud provider
instead of (or as well as) storing it on their own hard drives.

Compliance as a Service is a Service Level Agreement which specifies how a Managed Service Provider (MSP) or Provider helps your organization to meet its regulatory compliance.

Compliance can consume a lot of man hours and time to stay on top of.

The goal of Compliance as a Service is to reduce your organization’s burden for regulatory compliance. This happens through clearly defined management tasks which are outsourced to a managed IT or Cloud Service Provider.

As a result, the MSP or Provider can assist your company in reaching the regulatory compliance as specified in DFARS 7012, HIPPA, PCI-DSS and SOX.

Data backup – duplication of files – provides recovery of data in the event of
a data loss occurrence. Nowadays, there are many kinds of data backup
services that help enterprises and organizations ensure that data is secure
and that critical information is not lost to a natural disaster or theft scenario.

Managed Security Services (MSS) are network security services that have been outsourced to a service provider. Increasingly, organizations that previously managed IT security in-house are turning to MSS in order to alleviate the pressures that arise from a growing complexity.

MSS would include endpoint security as well as managed detection and managed response with 24/7/365 coverage for all applicable end points.

The Washington Post reported on 11/22/2021 that within the US “Each person may soon have 10 devices tied to them … Ten devices per person times a household of four — that’s 40 devices for entry..”

As a result there has been a steep increase in more critical workplace devices needing to be connected and communicating. These devices generate more data which needs to be protected in a safe manner.

Consequently, in order to make this happen and to move away from time consuming manual or semi-automated processes, certain providers offer adaptive unified endpoint management software. This software can anticipate security threats. Moreover, it has been designed in a way where it covers all forms of mobile end points: smartphones, laptops and tables alike.

Managed firewall services are provided by qualified managed security services providers (MSSPs) to address security threats and to monitor your network traffic. Security professionals will monitor your network and provide analysis and reporting as part of a managed firewall package.

Secure Access Service Edge (SASE), a recently introduced solution, is the convergence of wide area
networking and network security services into a single, cloud-delivered
service model.

SASE has come about because organizations are seeing a need to restructure their approach to security as a result of the sharp increase in remote users and need for software-as-a-service applications in 2020.

 In addition, data has been moving from the data center to cloud services, and more traffic is going to public cloud services and branch offices than back to the data center.

To accommodate this shift, providers have created SASE.

    I first started working with Firstlight Cloud Xchange back in 2003 when I was an employee at another company. Since then, I have opened my own company and they have provided communication services to my organization at multiple locations. Our recent migration to the Cloud for all our services had been completely seamless. The installation was on time and the ongoing management provided by Firstlight helps OSG meet our daily needs and grow our business.

      I work closely with Firstlight Cloud Xchange as the IT Manager of BDS and can say with confidence that it is and has been a great working and learning experience. As a customer and not an industry insider, it is not possible for us to know which carrier is telling the truth or how reliable their product really is. This is where Taslim’s expertise comes very handy. FCX always implements the service and the carrier that can best deliver what BDS needs without a bias. Paired with outstanding customer service from the rest of the FCX team that, in my opinion is unparalleled – making them one of the most reliable, understanding and trustworthy vendors I have worked with so far. Thank you – Firstlight!

        I have worked with Taz and the team at Firstlight Cloud Xchange since 2004. From the beginning of our engagement, both of our companies have grown together. Firstlight was integral part of building our voice and data network. The Cloud based services recommended by FCX proved to be more reliable and efficient than our previous setup. FCX installed and currently manages our telecom and network services. I am happy to say that we are very satisfied with their level of service and performance.

          LSNYC is a large law firm with 600 lawyers in several locations across the five boroughs of New York City. Our network requirements are pretty complicated and elaborate – to say the least. We leveraged Firstlight Cloud Xchange’s expertise and their existing relationship with some of the major providers in the marketplace. FCX successfully deployed Cloud services that consolidated all our network services throughout all our locations on one platform with better uptime and lower cost. We are very happy with what FCX has done for LSNYC.
