NorthState Technology Solutions Security Engineering offers a pool of highly qualified, certified security practitioners. Our best-in-class engineers have extensively demonstrated mastery of governance, risk, and compliance without sacrificing technical specializations.
Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) EDR tools provide a wealth of new information from the endpoint, but challenge you to make best use of all this additional data. NorthState engineers deploy, maintain, and optimize EDR tools to ensure that you receive maximum return on investment.
Next-Generation Anti-Virus tools combine the best of signature-based endpoint protection with behavioral analytics, providing a holistic approach to reactive endpoint security. NorthState engineers work with you to avoid false positive alerts, define what is normal in your environment, and help you operationalize and tune the tool to provide actionable data.
Data Loss Prevention
Data Loss Prevention (DLP) tools identify and protect your sensitive data before it leaves your environment. Our policies and remediation strategies comprehensively protect healthcare, payment card, and personal information. Properly tuned DLP implementations keep you compliant with HIPAA, PCI, GDPR, and other regulatory standards, while protecting trade secrets and intellectual property. We also partner with enterprise risk managers to identify tool limitations and mitigate risk.
Privileged Identity Management (PIM)
The impact of today’s frequent security breaches is lessened by an effective PIM strategy. NorthState engineers plan and implement PIM tools in a phased approach to assure optimal business process performance. This maximizes administrative and service accounts to protect identity and access management controls.
Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM)
Traditional and Next-Generation SIEM tools provide a “single pane of glass” that overlooks your entire enterprise security environment. NorthState engineers have years of experience in implementing and optimizing SIEM around the globe.
Network Packet Capture and Review
Packet capture tools allow analysts to watch and replay traffic in near real-time to identify and investigate anomalous activity on your network. NorthState engineers can help you to identify the indicators of a compromised network or operating system.
Intrusion Detection/Prevention (IDS/IPS)
IDS/IPS solutions are a foundational defense for your security posture. NorthState engineers tune these critical tools to provide the protection against known bad activities, while reducing false positives.
Many security practitioners consider application whitelisting to be the most effective means of securing an endpoint. NorthState engineers have years of experience in rolling out application whitelisting in very large environments with complex line-of-business requirements. Our proven strategies make this a powerful tool for your user base, leadership, and security teams.
