Our Network Security Solutions for Businesses in the Chicago Area
Employee Phishing and Security Awareness Training
Recent reports show that phishing incidents grew 220% during the COVID-19 pandemic compared to the yearly average and this trend is not showing signs of slowing down. Ensure your team is well-equipped to withstand any cyberattack and protect sensitive data with forward-thinking training. Drawing on real-life scenarios, our phishing and security awareness training will help your staff recognize and report security threats that could otherwise cost your company hundreds of thousands of dollars. We’ll walk them through common signs of phishing attacks. Our team will also make sure to expand their knowledge around phishing links, and phishing attachments, guiding them through the immediate steps to take after they’ve identified a threat. Your team will benefit from interactive security awareness training modules designed to keep your employees on high alert when it comes to security policies.
Leverage our cybersecurity Chicago experts’ tools and expertise to protect your network perimeter. A secure and reliable network is key to avoiding costly data losses, maintaining regulatory compliance, and minimizing attacks from harmful ransomware. RAM safeguards your network with various sophisticated defense solutions including vulnerability scans, firewalls, VPNs, next-generation firewalls, penetration testing, and more. From Trojans, viruses, and worms, to spyware, cross-site scripting, denial of service attacks, and SQL injections, our team can accurately detect and protect the enterprise data, no matter where your users and devices are located. Our comprehensive protection strategies are also meant to increase your network’s performance, so all applications can work quickly and seamlessly.
As cyber security consulting experts, we know securing employee devices in the ever-evolving digital workplace can be challenging. It’s also critical for protecting your business against catastrophic cyber security threats. Cybercriminals can penetrate your company's network with only one device, disrupting operations, exposing vital data assets, and damaging customer relationships. Mobile devices are particularly at risk of cyber-attacks, which is why it is important to securely manage all devices from a single portal, saving both time and money. From device inventory, restrictions, and configurations, to the management of applications, content, and more, we’ll provide everything you need to standardize device management and boost employee performance.
RAM tracks and encrypts all devices, including laptops, tablets, smartphones, or USB drives. We ensure your team can work from anywhere without compromising company-sensitive data.
System Security Policies
Skip the boilerplate IT security policy and create a unique set of rules and procedures that will shield your organization's IT assets and resources. As one of the best cyber security companies in Chicago, we’ve created countless effective and easy-to-follow system security policies that help companies preserve the availability, confidentiality, and integrity of their systems and information. Drawing from security policy formation best practices, our experts will help you create a customized policy by identifying your business’ risk tolerance, as well as patterns in how employees interact with valuable information. Armed with this document, you’ll be able to ensure that sensitive data is shared securely while improving user productivity. We’ll work together to help you create a living security policy that will evolve at the same time as your business and IT requirements.
Our device protocols, restrictions on authorized use, and privacy/company access provide employees with a set of guidelines to help them perform at their best with proper cybersecurity protection. As one of the leading cyber security companies in Chicago, RAM will help elevate your cybersecurity strategy with enhanced control over your most sensitive data. Our security experts start by identifying vital data security gaps and mapping out the next steps to protect your enterprise data landscape. We’ll also provide you with data classification and baselining continuous vulnerability monitoring, and access policy control. Together, we’ll design a robust and well-rounded data security roadmap that is focused on minimizing accidental data loss and maximizing workflow efficiencies.
Does your staff know how to set up strong passwords or securely destroy both digital and paper records? Empower your team to make better decisions around your sensitive data by putting clear procedures in place. Our experts will help you create user ID request guidelines, password policies, and security breach reporting rules. We’ll also build policies around the disposal of sensitive waste. Having a document "spring cleaning" policy helps securely destroy unwanted files and papers as a way to avoid exposing confidential information.
A retention policy is also vital in preventing identity theft, financial loss and reputational damages. We’ll help you create specific steps to determine which documents should be saved, for how long, and most importantly, provide access to only the individuals who are allowed to view key files and storage closets.
Advanced endpoint defense
Whether your staff bring their own devices to the office or work remotely and share devices, endpoint defense can detect threats in real-time, stopping them from wreaking havoc on your valuable data. Leveraging Artificial Intelligence (AI) engines, our enterprise high-performance endpoint protection can keep your business safe while empowering your team to stay flexible and securely access business networks from anywhere in the world across WiFi networks, company-owned devices, and more.
Basic, free antivirus solutions are easy to hack. Our next-generation cybersecurity software learns from those attack methods to improve our protection against a wide range of threats. This includes malware, exploits, as well as an insider and active threats.
Most companies see their passwords as an afterthought, giving hackers a free pass to access their sensitive information. Around 80% of cyberattacks begin with a single, weak password that either follows a predictable pattern, uses common words, and/or is duplicated across accounts.
Avoid a crisis and strengthen your business security with leading-edge password testing. Our cybersecurity consulting experts will put your passwords to the test using innovative tools and identify what accounts are most vulnerable to a cyber-attack. At RAM, we believe that a proactive approach to mitigation tactics is key to protecting your network. We’ll audit and recover your passwords, making sure they are regularly changed with unique letters and characters that are hard to decipher.
Dark Web monitoring
Stolen customer or employee data shared on the Dark Web can irreversibly damage your company's reputation. This hidden side of the internet has become a hacker’s marketplace for confidential information such as credit card numbers and social media credentials. Few people have access to the Dark Web and that is because of the special web servers and software required, as well as the highly encrypted nature of this platform.
RAM provides Dark Web monitoring services that allow us to quickly identify any hacked data floating around the depths of the Internet. This added level of security will allow you to understand what breaches you might have missed and correct the problems that led to them. Leveraging human and machine intelligence, we’ll identify stolen information such as email addresses, credentials, usernames, and passwords. We then take preventative measures to protect personal credentials, including those of senior management.
Advanced threat protection for email
Email is often the original source of a cyber breach, yet many companies are not investing enough efforts into strengthening this line of defense for information security. Safeguard your business from phishing, malware, spam, and other incoming threats with a cloud-based security service featuring a 99.9% catch rate and exceptional low false negatives (bad emails penetrating the network). This multi-pronged approach to protecting emails against malicious links alerts users every time they are about to compromise your security system by opening a suspicious link or attachment. And thanks to message retraction, we’re able to recant faulty emails that already reached users’ inboxes.
Offsite backup storage
RAM’s cyber security consulting professionals can help you securely preserve sensitive customer data while enjoying easy access whenever you need it. From power outages caused by a storm to cyberattacks, there are many scenarios that require offsite backups amid a crisis.
Having a solid backup and disaster recovery plan will help you recover faster after a ransomware attack, a human error that resulted in accidental file deletion, or a natural disaster that wiped out all your files. With RAM, you gain the peace of mind that servers are backed up multiple times an hour and stored again in a secure data center for extra protection.
Backup for office 365
As cybersecurity Chicago-based experts, we know how much important information is stored within your Office 365 applications and what losing them would mean for your company. While hardware failures are rare, nothing can be left to chance when it comes to data security. Our first-class, cloud-based Microsoft 365 backups are designed to ensure your essential data remains safe. This includes calendars, Microsoft Exchange information, and shared folders, that can be recovered from anywhere, both remotely and in the office.
