At App Maisters, we are big champions of security and compliance, especially for businesses running cloud-based applications.
If you are using Office 365, Dropbox, Salesforce, or any other cloud-based application, your business is vulnerable to data leaks and attacks. Not only can a lack of security cause immediate problems in the form of downtime, lost business, and expense, it is also costly in the long run.
You don’t want to risk ruining your business’s reputation over technology security breaches.
Furthermore, depending on your business, you may need quality security to remain compliant with government regulations. And, if you take credit cards over the Internet, you’ll need to be PCI compliant, or you risk losing your merchant account.
Fortunately, App Maisters provides top-notch cloud security services to any business that relies on Internet-connected technology.
And today, that’s just about every business that has a website.
Whether you need help with cloud security and data protection, App Maisters has the technical expertise and security know-how. Our qualified technicians and consultants can identify security gaps, improve technical processes, and upgrade systems to ensure security and reliability.
Migrating your architecture and data into the cloud can be challenging enough without the inevitable security concerns. You want your legacy systems updated, more agile, and cloud accessible – yet, you want the same if not better security.
Cloud security first off starts with where and how your cloud data is hosted.
We work with a number of high-end cloud providers, including Google Cloud, Amazon Cloud, Azure Cloud, and Rackspace Cloud. Each of these providers offers excellent threat management and features for the best in cloud security when combined with our technology expertise.
Should you choose to manage your own off-site cloud facility, we can help with security protocols, processes, and systems.
App Maisters specializes in cloud implementations that retain agility and accessibility while ensuring security. With our help, your company can get the full benefits of being connected via the cloud without the vulnerabilities – and that can transform your business.
Mobile security is more than just making sure your businesses smartphone has access control.
With so many employees now bringing their own devices (BYOD), security is more important than ever.
From employee laptops, tablets, and phones to remote workers, your company is at risk of exposing sensitive data.
The risk of BYOD also potentially affects your compliance with regulations and other industry standards. Yet, turning back the clock is not an option. Not only is BYOD helpful in reducing equipment costs, employees simply expect it these days.
App Maisters can help with your data governance and mobile security plan.
We will work with you to engage a security audit and then develop a system that will provide security as well as the mobile access your team needs.
What does identity and privilege mean when it has to do with technology?
Identity is all about who is signing into your systems. But are they who they say they are?
On the other hand, privilege is all about who gets access to what.
With the drive towards digital transformation, and as more and more cloud strategies are being implemented, the problems and risks surrounding identity and access are only increasing.
Additionally, disparate systems that might be hosted on-site – while others are available via the cloud – provide further challenges to security.
With more than 95% of cyberattacks leveraging weak end user credentials, setting up protections such as multi-factor authentication and implementing other best practices is critical to keeping data secure.
Our security consultants at App Maisters can help review your authentication and access systems to determine areas of vulnerability. Then, we can strategize and implement improvements.
Data protection and threat detection are absolutely critical for today’s businesses.
More and more laws and regulations are requiring companies to ensure the security of their data. You need to be in compliance with these regulations for proper IT governance. However, having the resources to monitor and track your data for intrusion can be a limitation.
Meanwhile, hackers have become more and more sophisticated.
They may have been virtually stalking you for months, looking for vulnerabilities in your system, and finding ways to access information when your tech people weren’t looking.
The security experts at App Maisters know what to look for in terms of threat detection. We have a lot of experience managing and mitigating security threats.
One of our specialties is leveraging top-of-the-line security analytics systems to review and monitor your systems for intrusion. This can include real-time log analysis and event detection to catch attacks before they become too severe.
Data breaches can also happen due to accident or poorly managed systems. This is often true of older legacy systems that have been cobbled together to integrate with newer pieces of software.
A full security audit can identify these areas of weakness, and then we can determine a potential path to move forward and mitigate the vulnerabilities.
Our team of qualified cloud security experts is skilled at identifying and stopping cyberattacks and advanced threats using rock solid methodologies and the latest technologies and intelligence tools.
App Maisters provide expertise in managing a range of regulatory and corporate compliance requirements. Scaling across the enterprise, we ensure your digital assets map compliance controls and mandates within a centralized framework, thereby simplifying compliance monitoring and management.
At App Maisters, we take the “security first” approach to whether it’s HIPAA or PCI compliance, based on industry regulatory standards.
HIPAA is the federal Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act of 1996. The primary goal of the law is to make it easier for people to keep health insurance, protect the confidentiality and security of healthcare information and help the healthcare industry control administrative costs. The Privacy Rule is balanced so that it permits the disclosure of health information needed for patient care and other important purposes. HIPAA Rule specifies a series of administrative, physical, and technical safeguards for covered entities and their business associates to use so they can assure the confidentiality, integrity, and availability of electronic protected health information.
Our consultants can help you assess and identify areas for improvement in meeting HIPAA compliance requirements. Using a risk methodology tightly aligned with HIPAA compliance requirements, our team will conduct the required risk analysis to help you to identify and apply appropriate security measures and controls. App Maisters is 100% committed to never jeopardizing that relationship by ensuring the security and privacy of your PHI stored on our platform.
Payment Card Industry Data Security Standards (PCI DSS) and a focus on information security has become more crucial within the financial service industry than ever before. New rules governing everything from data encryption to network segmentation makes it difficult to achieve and maintain PCI DSS requirements. It takes continuous effort to keep up-to- date. Failing to comply with these standards can expose the organizations to potential fines. There are several hurdles to overcome such as patch management, log monitoring, firewall management and web application firewall management, in order to achieve and maintain compliance within the organization.
Our PCI consultants will assist to minimize those hurdles, identify gaps & key processes to ensure that the compliance is met. With continuous assessment and maintenance of your system, we will be able to help you reduce the risk of any security breach and be compliance- ready at all times.
Don’t wait until your business is hacked before taking care of your technical security. With our proactive support, we can prevent security breaches before they happen. And, we can help rescue your data if you’ve contacted us after an incident.
