Products

  • Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP)

    Just as many of us have security-cameras in and around our homes, your network requires the same/expanded “persistent-recorded-view” of all relevant hardware and/or software, anchoring your critical day-to-day operations. A Managed-Security-Plan places advanced hardware & software in a client’s network infrastructure that’s capable of monitoring anomalies and/or variances leading to a possible security-breach; real-time scans include not only physical IT-assets, but also human-behavioral changes…all recorded through system-logs that the coverage captures & parses…so you don’t have to. Plans are customized and made available at affordable, monthly fees allowing organizations to focus on their business/service-mission, not worrying about Cyber-Threats.

  • Cyber Security Risk Assessment

    A comprehensive review of your District’s current Cyber Risk as it relates to potential “Attack-Surfaces” that could lead to possible compromise. The report includes a seven-layer Defense-in-Depth analysis that results in reducing the risk of a cybersecurity incident, limiting the exposure & damage should an incident occur, creating a “culture of security awareness” and aligning with required compliance regulations. Mercadien offers levels of our Risk Assessment based on the number of schools a district has within its footprint.

Solutions Brief

Challenge: Your current security is failing - Cyber criminals are already in your networkSolution: MCare® Cyber Threat Hunting Enterprise | Federally rated technology protection

Standard perimeter security protection is no longer a viable solution in today’s Threat-Landscape. No matter your business/organization size, you MUST align yourself with a Cyber Security Operations Center (SOC) provider.

Cyber-attacks are quickly becoming more sophisticated. Regardless of the safety measures put in place, whether it be virus protection & malware software or physical firewalls, the weakest link in any organization is its employees. 91% of successful data breaches start with a spear-phishing attack.
