onShore Security Mission
Because Security Gives Us Freedom
To detect and respond quickly to true cybersecurity threats as a trusted member of your team, augmenting current security and IT resources - and help you sleep easy at night knowing that you are well-protected and compliant.
Beware Those Who Over-Promise.
Many security vendors and IT managed service providers rely almost entirely on hardware and software to protect their clients, but it takes human expertise to counter human threats. Hackers, from individuals to those sponsored by foreign governments and crime syndicates, are relentless and creative in their search for ways to thwart automated systems. No single system can provide holistic and comprehensive network protection at all points.
Software and hardware point solutions are important parts of an effective cybersecurity solution - but only part, so beware of those claiming 100% intrusion prevention with software and hardware. This includes your own IT staff, as well as salespeople who won't be there to help when intrusions occur.
Why You Can Trust onShore for Cybersecurity Protection: Strategy & Background
An unpleasant truth: intrusions will occur. While we work with our clients to prevent as much as possible, our broader focus is on detection and response. We first identify vulnerabilities and what is needed for compliance with Cybersecurity Leadership. Then we separate true threats from benign activity within the "firehose of data" collected from systems and sensors and mitigate those threats early in the kill-chain. Because today there is no true network perimeter and every point on your network and elsewhere is an attack surface we ingest and correlate data from almost any point solution source, not just log files, and throughout the enterprise and into the cloud, we call this the Panoptic Approach.
Founded in 1991, we have deep network experience, with a past as an internet service provider (ISP), and a software developer, primarily serving financial institutions.
As an ISP, we have had to develop extensive monitoring capabilities, since all nodes on our network are exposed to the internet with zero protection.
Today we are leaders in the cybersecurity defense field.
We developed our own platform to help us monitor the huge amount of network data coming in daily and turned it towards the enterprise in 2004. We use sensors and set up activity thresholds for auditing and reviewing traffic to identify the issues that require immediate response. Our system allows us to detect and correct the little things that can be early indicators of big problems, without effort wasted on the vast majority of traffic that is benign. Our expert engineers and analysts analyze events and continuously tune our systems for greater efficacy.We launched our managed security service in 1999, initially working with financial institutions, many of whom were first movers in cybersecurity, because of the incredibly high financial stakes. We now work with organizations of every type, since nearly every organization is a potential target for hacking, IP theft, and ransomware attacks.
Why Do We Do IT? Because Security Gives Us Freedom
When cybersecurity threats are mitigated, you can sleep well at night and have the unhindered confidence to innovate and grow your organization.
