National Cyber Security Awareness Month

Posted on October 03, 2022
IT Service

October marks Cybersecurity Awareness Month, an internationally recognized campaign each October to help the public learn more about the importance of cyber security.  

No single security method is good enough to ward off every vulnerability, which is why Apogee’s clients have multi-layer security profiles. With The Apogees 7 layers of security, you’ll have peace of mind knowing you have considered everything you can to secure your business. 

Apogee’s Security Solution

At Apogee IT Services, every client’s managed services solution includes these ‘best practices’ for layers of security. All security solutions include licenses & management, including renewals. Plus, we continuously vet new technologies to ensure our clients receive up-to-date protection.

  • Cloud-based anti-spam
  • Network-based web filtering & Malware/Botnet protection
  • Endpoint security including anti-virus & anti-spyware
  • Internet security firewall/UTM device(s)
  • Daily backup monitoring & remediation
  • Remote security patch management & deployment
  • End-user security awareness training

Data Backup & Disaster Recovery

Given that there is no "perfect solution" to stop all potential cyber security threats, protecting business data is more important than ever before, which is why we offer an image-based backup as part of the Apogee managed services solution with state-of-the-art tools and processes.

As an Apogee client you’ll have peace of mind knowing that we follow a 3-2-1 backup philosophy:

  • Your data will exist in 3 places (including the live data that you use) 
  • 2 separate psychical location 
  • 1 of which is offsite

Additionally, we have data recovery services and help our clients to develop business continuity plans and incident response plans as applicable.

Backups can be performed as often as every hour of every day. We include 24/7/365 backup monitoring and alerting as part of the Apogee solution. Our technologists will proactively check on any ‘no shows’ – when backups can’t be confirmed – and remediate when necessary. Backup reporting is available at any time and can be produced to meet compliance regulation.

Apogee IT's Seven Layers of Security

Apogee has built their business around designing systems and processes that create CERTAINTY around the security of their client’s IT technologies. They focus on delivering security solutions that protect client’s data, users, and connectivity as well as meet the compliance requirements of the business. They and their partners provide a level of expertise, tools, processes, and support that is dedicated to protecting against the rampage of attacks that threaten their business every minute of the day.

The seven levels identified by Apogee include:

  1. Mission Critical Assets  the part of the organization, product or service you are looking at securing
  2. Data Security  security controls in place to protect and monitor your data at rest and in transit
  3. Application Security  security controls and policies to protect access to your applications and how your applications access your data
  4. Endpoint Security  Controls to protect the connection between your computing devices and the network
  5. Network Security  Network controls and policies that protect your organizations network and prevent unauthorized access to your network and resources
  6. Perimeter Security  Physical and digital methodologies and policies that protect your overall organization
  7. The Human layer  Human security controls, policies and reporting that protect your critical assets from human threats
