How We Work

How We Work

Our four-phase approach to cyber security ensures successful implementation.

At Heptagon IT, we practice a four-phase approach to cyber security. When our clients become highly effective at each lower level phase, the higher level phases can then be implemented successfully.

Heptagon Phases

p1
Business Process Analysis/Critical Data Identification – We review your business processes and identify the types of critical data stored within your infrastructure.
p2
Infrastructure Remediation – Simply put, we identify gaps in routine system maintenance and help automate the time-consuming software patching and upgrade cycles. This frees up your internal IT Staff to focus on tasks that cannot be automated.
p3
Audit Passive Defenses – We make sure firewalls, anti-malware, anti-virus, intrusion detection and intrusion prevention are being used to the full extent of their capability.
p4
Implement Active Defenses – We create a custom active defense strategy and train your internal IT staff to identify active threats and make quick decisions to neutralize those threats.

“It is much simpler to try and understand a customer’s issues, concerns, and what you can do to help them in the beginning, rather than assuming you know what they want and trying to fix a broken relationship later. At Heptagon, we always try to put ourselves in the customer’s position in order to try and determine the best way forward working with them.”
