Cybersecurity is not what it used to be.
Ten years ago, security was simpler. Software was less complicated and solving cybersecurity problems was relatively straightforward.
The threats have evolved, times have changed. What worked five years, three years, or even one year ago is not as effective anymore.
Security threats are now more serious and numerous then even a short time ago. According to the FBI, cybersecurity threats are becoming more complex, more common, and more costly than ever.
With so many threats constantly on the horizon your time, money, and attention is more challenged than ever. In this rapidly changing landscape, it is hard to know who to trust and how to keep up with the current threats.
That is where we come in.
The cybersecurity world needs some Special Forces.
Grizzled cybersecurity veterans who spent thousands of hours pouring through code, deploying software and eliminating threats.
A team that knows how to keep a network secure, both internally and externally.
With BSI on your side, you will finally be able to stop looking over your shoulder. You will be able to rest easy, with the assurance that your assets are protected.
We pay attention to the finer details – if you want to secure an asset, you cannot only focus on external threats. Building a more secure external defense environment is not any use if there is already an internal threat exposure on the network.
Our philosophy on security can be summed up into 14 short statements, below. Follow these 14 truths to improve your information security posture…

Our solutions include all facets of cybersecurity security companies face today.
Compliance & Vulnerability
Information security threats are more sophisticated, frequent, and dangerous than ever before. The dramatic increase in vulnerabilities discovered, along with the speed at which new threats are created, make this challenge even steeper. Measuring and managing network risk is a significant challenge for companies of all sizes.
Today’s attacks bypass many layers of protection and directly target network weaknesses. When using credentialed scanning for compliance audit purposes, deviations from baseline system configurations can be detected and resolved quickly.
Bayside Solutions can assist with ensuring compliance on a variety of levels.
Endpoint Security is a vital part of all IT policies and procedures. BSI is partnered with industry-leaders in order to provide your organization with an endpoint security solution that meets all of your business and information security needs.
The number and types of virus threats increase every year, with new ones appearing at an alarming rate. At minimum, every computer that connects to the Internet must have some form protection installed.
Bayside Solutions can assist with a security solution able to protect endpoints from both internal and external threats.
Event & Log Management
Security Information Event Management (SIEM) solutions collect data and log files into a central repository for trend analysis.
Event management solutions centralize the storage and interpretation of event logs generated on your network, actively monitor IT resources across your organization, filter and correlate events, and automate responses to security incidents; therefore, become a valuable tool to monitor network security and performance.

Web & Application Security
Application security is the use of software, hardware, and procedural methods to protect applications from external threats. To address web application security, you must treat security vulnerabilities as defects. As such, application security must be incorporated into your existing quality management practices within the development lifecycle.
Web and URL filtering solutions significantly reduce productivity loss, legal risks, and security exposure. Additionally, URL filtering significantly reduces bandwidth consumption by blocking unwanted content.
Application management offers real-time monitoring of all transactions, automatic discovery of application components and their dependencies, an advanced analytics engine and technology to quickly pinpoint the root cause of performance problems. These features reduce downtime and optimize availability.

The resulting information should be used to develop strategies to mitigate those risks.
Vulnerability Assessments proactively evaluate infrastructure weaknesses that could allow unauthorized access to a network. This in-depth network-based analysis of the overall security organizational infrastructure involves review of documents, configurations, network diagrams, and interviews.
