While we always look to find ways to secure a system without going over a company's budget, the thing business leaders need to realize is that in taking preventative steps now, they're saving a fortune over the long run.
Duluth, GA (Vocus) April 22, 2010
In conjunction with a new program focusing on Vulnerability Management, IT consulting firm Guidance Consulting seeks to offer effective vulnerability analysis options at a fraction of the cost of traditional IT firms. Vulnerability analysis, or the act of finding weaknesses in a computer, network, or communication infrastructure, can be an expensive undertaking, depending on the size and type of company.
As part of a new department dedicated to Vulnerability Management Program Development, the professionals at Guidance Consulting have streamlined the way they approach the process. “We have metrics in place to make the entire vulnerability analysis process as easy as possible,” says Ronald Gottilla, senior consultant at Guidance Consulting. “We go through the various steps and find ways to make each one that much more cost-effective.”
These steps include everything from assessing a company's current resources and using ethical hacking to identifying potential threats and coming up with a disaster recovery plan that minimizes the damages following an attack. By focusing on each step one at a time, Guidance Consulting allows companies to put their money where's it's needed most, strengthening weaknesses and creating back-up solutions.
“What's unique about a vulnerability analysis is that it can save money, too,” says Gottilla. “While we always look to find ways to secure a system without going over a company's budget, the thing business leaders need to realize is that in taking preventative steps now, they're saving a fortune over the long run.”
This type of thinking is just part of the overall vulnerability analysis plan. Guidance Consulting also uses metrics to indicate just how much money can be saved over the long term, weighing the costs of initial planning against the tens of thousands of dollars that can arise from an IT disaster.
For over 15 years, Guidance Consulting has been delivering profitable technology results to everything from small, private firms to Fortune 500 companies. In addition to meeting vulnerability management, regulatory compliance, and staffing needs, Guidance Consulting implements a wide range of IT solutions that help companies to cut costs, increase productivity, and avoid damages associated with vulnerability issues to get the most out of the current technologies available for businesses of all sizes.
