Web Security Consultants
IT security remains firmly in the top 10 concerns for CIOs, and with good reason. Research shows that the cost of a single security breach is close to $4 million. And experts warn that breaches are no longer about prevention. They have moved from an “if” scenario to a “when”. Prevention remains paramount. But having a plan for recovery is now just as important.
Smart organizations know that security is about much more than just access control. It’s about ensuring business continuity. It’s about being a custodian of customers’ personal information. It’s about understanding how processes can be abused to stay one step ahead of attackers.
With all of these concerns, it’s understandable that many internal IT teams have their hands full. The last thing your enterprise needs is a partner that doesn’t put security first. Curotec takes a proactive approach to security on all of our projects. But our services don’t stop with your applications. Curotec can also help you protect your systems, design preventative policies, and plan for the worse so you can get back to business more quickly.
Web and Application Security
When developing and updating applications, security cannot be an afterthought. Curotec develops all of our applications using secure development best practices and methods from the start, whether we’re working on an eCommerce implementation, an ERP integration, or anything in between. Our development teams understand that many applications deal with Personally Identifiable Information (PII data) and can implement encryption to handle sensitive data. And while no one can stop every attack, we build our solutions using the latest in security standards to help prevent:
- SQL Injections
- Cross Site Scripting attacks (XSS)
- Remote code execution
- Man-in-the-Middle attacks
Enterprise and System Security
Not all security measures are large and costly projects. Curotec can help keep your systems running smoothly and securely with:
- Regular system and application audits
- Patching activities
- Operating systems and software upgrades
- Implementing security event logging and alerts
- Development of secure passwords and ciphers
- Setting up hardware firewalls
But effective security practices go well beyond hardening applications against attack, and preventative measure will only get you part of the way there. Organizations must have recovery plans in place for when the worst occurs and have staff that understands the importance everyone plays in keeping your systems secure. Let Curotec leverage our security experience to develop a plan for prevention and recovery, including:
- Create disaster recovery plans and test annually
- Develop and define IT security policies
- Educate staff on security best practices and policies
