Business Issue
The business climate has changed, in that, productivity needs to be in our hands at all times. No longer are we in the office at our desk from 9 to 5. No longer can we be away from our email, calendar and critical data and applications as business demands near real time responsiveness no matter where we are during the day.

Additionally, as a condition of business, organizations are considering it prudent to ensure that their operations and infrastructure have been assessed by neutral third party expertise in order to get an industry view of the correct combination of Device, Network and Application – the D.N.A of success in wireless solutions.

Securing your mobile data is one of our specialties. Our CISSP certified engineers have performed security assessments for all different aspects of IT Security within various industry sectors: Government, Financial, Communications, Manufacturing, Legal and Distribution.

Our offerings include:

Our Mobility*Assessment can be the initial step undertaken to tackle the challenges associated with your mobile workers needs analysis. Our organization follows guidelines to determine application extensibility, access and if security policies/procedures are in place within an organization. We also conduct interviews and perform analysis to determine the robustness of an organizations infrastructure and how to extend this critical data/application outside the organization within the hands of mobile workers. Comprehensive reporting and analysis is produced as a deliverable for our client so that measures can be taken to develop and/or extend applications and correct the security vulnerabilities that have been uncovered. Our reporting is developed upon analysis based on using international security standards (ISO/IEC). For example, a focused analysis and review may be performed on these aspects of your organization:

  1. Security Policy
  2. Organizational Security
  3. Asset Classification and Control
  4. Personnel Security
  5. Physical and Environmental Security
  6. Communications and Operations Management
  7. Access Control
  8. Systems Development and Maintenance
  9. Business Continuity Management
  10. Compliance
  11. Security Requirements & Risk Management

Additionally, our Ethical*Penetration*Testing service can be used in conjunction or parallel with our Mobility*Assessment service to identify potential external vulnerabilities. We use tools and techniques in order to attempt to breach an organization's application, data and network and uncover vulnerabilities. This is one of the most important procedures that an organization should perform, as previously unknown network deficiencies and points of access are identified. Corrective steps can be taken immediately once this analysis is completed.

Once the exposed elements of an organization's application, data store and infrastructure are secured, it is appropriate to create or update an organization's security strategy. Our Mobility*Security*Strategy solution can be used to address all of an organization's application access and security needs, and encompass areas that include:

  • Devices
  • Data Networks
  • Internet Connectivity
  • Software
  • Physical Infrastructure
  • Environmental Security
  • Disaster Recover
  • Policies and Procedures

In order to implement a secure mobile strategy, we provide our clientele with our Application*Development solution, which can be used to address all areas of concern as it relates to security policies and procedures for accessing corporate data. This offering includes the creation and documentation of all policies and procedures that an organization requires, as a result of implementation of a secure application strategy.

We provide Mobility*Implementation services as our organizations is familiar with hardware, software, and networking technology. Our consultants are CISSP certified and can ensure that all technology is optimally deployed.

On an on-going basis, we provide our clients with a Managed*Mobility service.

That all of the applications, data store and policies and procedures are implemented and updated as per an organizations security strategy. Some organizations do not have the staff in-house to perform these functions, and we provide this service on a regularly scheduled basis. Other organizations do have security expertise, but require additional assistance to manage their environments, and rely on us to complement their internal resources.

Organizations might find that they do not enough staff on-board to handle mobility projects. This may be due to lack of training, or due to resource availability. The Consulting Practice is able to provide its clients with a project approach for performing mobility project work, by supplying appropriate resources, and project management skills so that implementations are performed on time and within budget.
