Cyber Security Offerings
The testing and/or evaluation of the management, operational, and technical security controls in an information system to determine the extent to which the controls are implemented correctly, operating as intended, and producing the desired outcome with respect to meeting the security requirements for the system.
Examples of security assessments:
- Firewall policy review
- Asset review
- Backup review
- Vulnerability management review
A vulnerability scan/assessment uses special tools to analyze your entire IT environment—network and servers, both external to the network (viewing the network from the outside) and internal to the network (from the inside).
After the scanning software is deployed, the results are analyzed and presented in actionable steps to correct security flaws. These scans can be a great tool to measure improvements of your company’s security by setting benchmarks for future progress. This emphasizes your most critical vulnerabilities and gives your team clear, actionable steps to secure your business.
Human error is a major weak point today that is easily exploited by cyber criminals. In fact, almost 90 percent of cyber-attacks are caused by human error or behavior.
Therefore, it’s vital that businesses have cybersecurity training in place to educate employees on the importance of protecting sensitive information and what malicious threats can look like.
As an IT services provider committed to protecting your business, we take the task of security education and training very seriously. In our training, we cover the essential elements including:
- Phishing and social engineering
- Access, passwords and connection
- Device security
- Physical security
A penetration test, colloquially known as a pen test, is an authorized simulated attack on a computer system, in order to evaluate the security of the system.
The test identifies weaknesses or use vulnerabilities, including the potential for unauthorized parties to gain access to the system’s features and data.
The process typically identifies the target systems and a goal, then reviews available information and undertakes various means to attain that goal.

We know how important being able to run business-as-usual is.
If you’re hit with a cyberattack, you need to ensure you have the ability to operate as if nothing happened—whether that’s continuing to take orders or operate your machinery to keep your revenue stream flowing.
ACP CreativIT partners with top backup solution providers for offsite backup that can be restored to your environment quickly and easily to minimize the damage and interruption to your workflow.

Endpoint Platform Protection (EPP) and Endpoint Detection & Response (EDR) helps to protect your endpoints, which is especially important as they continue to be the targets of attacks.
- 42% of survey respondents admitted to have at least one endpoint compromised (SANS 2018)
- Cryptojacking impact doubled to 28% (FortiGuard Labs Quarterly threat report, Q1 2018)
- 30% of breaches included malware (Verizon 2018 DBIR)
ACP CreativIT’s solutions provide a fabric-enabled approach to endpoint security. A fabric approach means we cover and assess every aspect of your organization, giving you visibility, compliance enforcement, vulnerability management and automation.
Our solutions are also certified and compatible with third-party endpoint protection agents.
Why deploy an EPP/EDR solution?
- Limited visibility and compliance enforcement of endpoints. Two thirds of companies cannot monitor off-network endpoints. Over half cannot determine endpoint compliance status. (Ponemon Institute)
- Endpoint OS and application vulnerabilities – threat actors continue to exploit known, unpatched vulnerabilities
- According to Gartner, 99% of vulnerabilities exploited are known at the time of the attacks
- Attacks are fast moving. According to Verizon DBIR, it takes minutes or less to compromise endpoints. Manual processes are too slow and ineffective to prevent the east/west movement inside the environment
