Security & Risk Management

Security & Risk Management

Our clients live in an increasingly challenging threat environment and are subject to rigorous audit and compliance requirements. Our goal is to help our clients continuously improve their security while balancing risk and cost.

Security & Risk Management Solutions

Empowered provides its clients with more effective layers of protection, earlier detection of breaches and malicious activities, and reduced costs in incident response and recovery. To achieve this, Empowered has carefully chosen a set of next-generation security solutions and supports them with a team of highly trained engineers and technologists.

We help our clients battle-test applications, infrastructure and systems to ensure they deliver effective security, performance and resilience.

We offer enterprise-wide Cybersecurity Assessments, Threat Risk Assessments (TRAs), Vulnerability Assessments (VAs) and Penetration Testing. These assessments allow you to harden your security defenses, identify the most vulnerable areas of IT, and focus limited resources on the remediation efforts that matter.

Our Cloud Security Assessments can help you identify and mitigate risks relating to migration to cloud solutions.

Empowered Services for Security

DNS is a critical network service. Unprotected, DNS is vulnerable a wide variety of attacks, and malware that leverages DNS.

Empowered delivers solutions from Infoblox to help you harden critical DNS services, with hardened appliances, software that reduces vulnerabilities, and intelligent protection against a variety of attacks.

Perimeter security vendors are engaged in an arms race with threat agents - one that they don't always win. And perimeter security can't catch attacks that don't traverse the perimeter, such as those that arrive on laptops and other mobile devices.

It is crucial that malware and other security breaches be identified inside the network. Empowered provides class-leading solutions to recognize security breaches and malware on end-stations, and by the traffic that they must generate to function.

Encryption does a lot to protect the privacy and integrity of communications, but it can also have a dark side. The majority of today's cyber threats are hiding in encrypted communications, which can be up to 70% of an organization’s traffic. We need precise solutions that can preserve all the good encryption does, while shining a light on the attacks it may be harboring.

Blue Coat's SSL Visibility Appliance gives you ‘x-ray’ vision into all your encrypted traffic and lets you decrypt and inspect SSL/TLS traffic with your existing network security and threat protection solutions.

Wireless networks expose organizations to a new breed of threats and operational problems different than wired networks.
