Security risks are at an all time high. Your organization needs a methodical approach to security as well as next-gen technology. It all starts with a free consultation with Rappahannock IT’s security team.

Maintaining the security of your business is becoming tougher and more important than ever. Don’t expose your organization to litigation, fines or the headlines.

Risk Analysis & Security Planning Services

We take a multi-phase approach including a series of well-organized and in-depth interviews with key stakeholders. We assess IT security controls as well as perform a hands on review of technical vulnerabilities. We show you the same view seen by the bad guys.

Working collaboratively with our client, our security assessment report provides a valuable insight to your organization’s security posture and risk temperament. The result is a high-level proposed roadmap and recommendations for remediation. We often work with organizations in many industries of many sizes.

Our methodology includes referencing standard control frameworks depending on the organization’s industry, requirements, objectives and vision. For example, we commonly reference the following frameworks and regulations:

  • ISO 2700x
  • NIST Special Publications 800-53 and 800-171
  • The NIST Cybersecurity Framework
  • HIPAA / HITECH
  • PCI DSS

The output of the technical evaluation includes specific recommendations for quick fixes as well as those which require more strategic planning. On the day the scans are executed, you are provided an informal report of Critical and High vulnerabilities and quick-win action items without waiting until the executive briefing. This provides you with a vulnerability baseline from which to manage right away.

We leverage an array of tools in order to provide a comprehensive technical view of your vulnerabilities. Our vulnerability assessment includes scanning, auditing and/or reviewing all of the following entities. This robust vulnerability assessment is always included as a standard feature of our security assessment.

  • Internal and External Vulnerability Assessment
  • Wireless Security
  • Firewalls and IPS
  • Identity Access Management
  • Active Directory Password Strength
  • Web Application Security
  • SSL and Encryption Strength

Security professionals hate surprises. The last thing you want to learn is that your security defenses aren’t sufficient against an amateur hacker. With an insecure system, the vulnerabilities are straightforward to exploit by a beginner or “script kiddie”. Systems can be taken offline and data can be stolen by a novice. You need to verify your defenses with penetration testing.

Penetration testing should be completed to manage security baselines on a recurring basis, test against vulnerability to zero day threats, to maintain compliance and as part of deploying new network devices and applications.

Penetration Testing Options

  • External network penetration tests
  • Internal network penetration tests
  • Wireless penetration tests
  • Web application penetration tests
  • Social engineering

The multi-billion dollar hacking industry is targeting your company’s prized assets. You need a Next-Generation Firewall (NGFW) to separate your trusted internal network from the dangers of the public Internet.

Beyond the basic concept of a firewall, there is a lot of complexity and a lot of choices among firewall vendors, models and configuration options. Rappahannock IT’s network and security engineers work together to guide customers through choosing the right firewall with the right features and right configuration suited to their environment.

Through a combination of our experience deploying hundreds of firewalls and strong partnerships with vendors like Cisco and Palo Alto, we offer low product costs and high-value design, implementation and management services.

When it comes to your IT needs, look no further than Rappahannock IT.

I work for a small business in Spotsylvania that requires a solid IT network. The system that we had was antiquated and desperately needed to be replaced. This was a large job that consisted of configuring switches, and running more than 70+ CAT6A drops. We obtained a quote from another vendor, but they were more focused on upselling us, instead of providing a quote for what we needed. Rappahannock provided knowledgeable, professional advice during the walk through consultation. They were able to accommodate our business needs and provided us with exactly what we needed to ensure our business runs more effectively. We haven’t had any kinks with our installation and will absolutely be using Rappahannock IT for any of our future IT needs.
