Solutionz, Inc. has announced the launch of Solutionz Security, a full-service cybersecurity firm reportedly dedicated to strengthening the cybersecurity posture for SMBs nationwide.
Solutionz saw that cybersecurity-related attacks were growing. With the increase of ransomware, supply chain attacks, and threats to internet of things (IoT) devices places even small organisations at risk as hackers exploit backdoors in smart TV firmware or software, telecommunication equipment, and cameras.
Bill Warnick, CEO, describes the logical cross over from an AV-specific cybersecurity division to the need for a sister company focused on full cybersecurity programs. “If you think about internet traffic that you have through communication, it is no different than data. The same mechanisms that monitor communication, monitor IoT traffic. There is an easy bridge that we are creating over that chasm.”
Shawn Fernandez, Vice President of Business Development and leader of the initiative to develop Solutionz Security, explains: “There are a lot of layers to cybersecurity. We created Solutionz Security to have 100% focus on cybersecurity. We took two years to develop our team of partners, experts who understand the complexities of cybersecurity both from the MSP and from the customer’s perspectives.”
Partnering with other cybersecurity firms, Solutionz Security has developed a comprehensive Defence Posture Assessment (DPA) to address every aspect of an organisation’s digital footprint: People. Processes. Technology.
Fernandez describes the difference in Solutionz Security’s approach, “We are selling more than tools. We come into an organisation and address their current defence posture.” He continues, “The best money spent is the money already spent on your cybersecurity. We want to build upon your success. We do not come in and say that we need to rip and replace your current solutions because our product is better. We look at what an organisation has already done, the efforts already put in. We then assess the gaps that exist, and we formulate a plan, prioritising the largest and most risky gaps and then we solve for that.”
“Cybersecurity does not have be hard. You don’t need a law degree to know when you need the police,” adds Warnick. “The quality of the assessment and managed services allow customers to feel confident that their digital landscapes are understood and protected without them needing in depth knowledge about cybersecurity. Solutionz Security’s cost-effective protections meet and document the various compliance requirements for payments, healthcare, corporate and government organisations.”
