FNTS Introduces New IT Security Offerings to Help Organizations Reduce Risk Profile and Enhance Security Posture

OMAHA, Neb. (April 17, 2024) – FNTS, an IT managed services provider that offers trusted intelligence and strategy to help enterprise organizations avoid risk, downtime and lost revenue, announced its latest lineup of Security offerings.

The average cost of a data breach reached an all-time high of $4.45 million in 2023, a 15.3% increase from 2020, according to IBM’s Cost of a Data Breach Report. Data breaches, zero-day exploits, ransomware – the list of cybersecurity threats facing organizations today is never-ending, and attacks are growing in size and frequency. To protect company networks and critical data, FNTS provides three new security offerings.

SOC-as-a-Service is a comprehensive and proactive approach to defending against modern cyber threats in real time through the utilization of machine learning, behavioral analysis and cutting-edge technology. FNTS offers two premium SOC-as-a-Service options for comprehensive security monitoring, threat detection, alerting and incident response.

Virtual CISO (vCISO) services from an experienced technology leader provide a comprehensive assessment of current security infrastructure, business processes and technology needs to ensure information security initiatives and business objectives are aligned. Robust security strategies and procedures are tailored to an organization’s risk profile and industry regulations.

Cyber Incident Response Planning prepares enterprises for worst-case scenarios by working closely with internal departments to create a thorough incident response plan that identifies vulnerabilities across IT landscapes, helps meet regulatory compliance requirements and creates a roadmap for triaging incidents.

“As cyber threats and regulatory compliance continue to evolve and advance, FNTS provides tailored, cost-effective and flexible security services to create information security strategies that ensure governance, compliance and robust security posture,” said FNTS Chief Information Security Officer Don Pecha. “At FNTS, there is no compromising when it comes to the security of valuable company assets. Our vision is to promote resilient architectures to protect critical data assets, identify vulnerabilities and manage security infrastructures effectively and efficiently.”

With nearly 30 years of industry-leading expertise, FNTS and its dedicated, highly experienced security analysts provide value across IT security landscapes by reducing risk profile with multiple lines of defense that include regulatory compliance, audit support, security information and event management (SIEM), firewall, antivirus and virtual private networks (VPN). FNTS’s controls, delivery processes and next-generation security capabilities align with its in-depth defense philosophy that combines data security governance frameworks, industry standards and zero-trust methodologies to ensure data isolation and segmentation.

“Safeguarding the future begins with securing the present by growing and adapting to the changing needs of security environments,” Pecha said. “FNTS consults with organizations to determine what solutions can be implemented as part of their security strategy and provides access to seamless protection and proactive vigilance to ensure organizational IT landscapes stand strong around the clock against evolving threats.”
