“Perch”ed on an ELK (Perch with Kibana) – Kibana is an open source data visualization plugin for Elasticsearch. It provides visualization capabilities on top of the content indexed on an Elasticsearch cluster. Users can create bar, line and scatter plots, or pie charts and maps on top of large volumes of data. The combination of Elasticsearch, Logstash, and Kibana, referred to as the “Elastic Stack” (formerly the “ELK stack”), is available as a product or service.

Reporting Made Simple

Cyber Security Q&A

My business is small, why should we care about Cyber Security? 67% of all SMBs experienced a cybersecurity attack, costing roughly an average of $400,000, causing 60% of SMBs to go out of business within 6 months of a cybersecurity attack.
Does every business (size and industry) need to invest in cyber security? Small and medium business IT Security spending will top $20B total, and a $6T loss projected from breaches by 2021! This is due to without regard of the size of the business; the company, employee, and customer data are some of the most valuable assets of a company (e.g. credit card information, price / service book information).
How does CN’s Cyber Security services differ from your Managed IT offerings? While Computers Nationwide’s Managed IT service focuses on the day to day technology related issues with basic security elements, the Cyber Security services expand on Managed IT or functions as a stand alone service. CN utilizes Perch’s co-managed threat detection and SOC (Security Operations Center) to constantly monitor and mitigate potential internal/external cyber security risks. Beyond detecting, mitigating, and responding CN takes a deep dive into firewall rules/policies, assists on policy creation (e.g. acceptable use, incident response), and end user trainings (e.g. Security Awareness Training, Email Phishing Education).
Cyber security threats are serious business. Hackers and malware can sneak in and disrupt your operations, costing you time, money AND your reputation. Worse still, hackers, malware, and ransomware can take down your business completely. We’re here to make sure that doesn’t happen.
