Alliance Integrates Vulnerability Information with Network Topology to Reduce Security Risks
Farmington Hills, MI —May 2016, Telecom Management Resources, Inc. (TMR), a leading provider of telecommunications design and customer support for mobile users within enterprises and VioPoint, a risk-based security and compliance management solutions provider have announced a formal, technology alliance and integration approach. This alliance provides enterprises with comprehensive threat and vulnerability risk management in the ever increasing mobile environment. By unifying vulnerability information with the distributed IT assets in the network, companies can now provide comprehensive Mobile Device Security Management (MDSM) services for their organization. This is a best-in-class collaboration of innovative security solutions.
“We are proud to ally ourselves with TMR” said Mark Murphy, President of VioPoint who oversees management and technology alliances. He continued, “We believe this integration is a perfect fit for customers that need to marry network topology and security in order to have a more comprehensive understanding of enterprise risk and the threats that they pose. In addition, taking a more proactive approach to user support, incident protection, response and management is critical to business continuity.”
Large complex networks with growing mobility needs require implementation, deployment, enforcement, and management of thousands of access rules in the network which are distributed across thousands of endpoints, and those numbers continue to grow at a staggering pace. This has made today’s enterprise risk management a complex practice. Manual determination of which devices and rules are responsible for (unwanted) access can be both difficult and time consuming, sometimes impossible. Unsecured access paths can leave organizations open to cyberattack and allow intruders to gain access to critical data, internal systems, and private information.
The combined monitoring and active user support through this alliance enables companies to focus on the most immediate security risks, resulting in an improved overall security posture.
The integration of services from TMR and VioPoint is unique. VioPoint’s solution ensures uniform visibility, defense and ongoing management of an organization’s entire threat and vulnerability exposure. VioPoint designed and developed Active Defense as a comprehensive monitoring solution that offers true security insight across your IT enterprise. The blend of technology and services provides the expertise and knowledge of a seasoned security team at fraction of what it would cost to build a comparable in-house security monitoring program. The combination of VioPoint’s vulnerability and risk management solution with TMR’s full suite of services provides a true, comprehensive MDSM solution. At TMR, experienced professionals approach every project with a vendor independent mindset, yet with a knowledge base to ensure ongoing compliance and control. This set of services incorporates a blend of:
-Device Registration and Management -User Support
-Audit and Access Controls -Policy Enforcement
-Standards -Proactive Monitoring
-Protection Tool Implementations -Change Management
-Data Loss Prevention -Incident Management
“Today’s enterprise networks are complex and ever-changing, making it extremely challenging to identify key points of attack risk on an on-going basis,” said Marc Metzger, CEO of TMR. “The integration between TMR and VioPoint combines two powerful capabilities that provide customers with a new approach to understanding their risk and prioritizing remediation efforts in a meaningful and effective way. And, more importantly actively provide mobile user support 24/7” Read more at http://ask4tmr.com/mdsm.php
