At ARK we recognize the need to defend our clients from both external and internal threats. To protect you better, we have added a new, low-cost cyber security service to our portfolio designed to uncover security threats occurring inside of your network. Behind this advanced service is an innovative cyber security appliance that works 24/7 using proprietary pattern recognition and mathematical modeling to identify anomalous user behavior, suspicious network changes, and threats caused by internal vulnerabilities and misconfigurations. With our cyber security appliance installed on your network, here are some examples of what we can catch:
- Unauthorized wireless connections to the network
- A new user profile unexpectedly added to the business owner’s computer
- An application just installed on a locked down system
- User granted inappropriate admin credentials
- Unusual after hours log-ins
These are just a few of hundreds of risky events occurring inside of your network that we can guard against with our cyber security appliance installed at your business. The appliance provides actionable intelligence that protects your office environment by alerting us to changes or threats caused by your staff, giving us critical time to act and working with you to create an action plan to mitigate the threat.
Threats and vulnerabilities exist for every business network around the world. Have peace of mind knowing that your business is not only protected from external threats like viruses and malware, but also from far more prevalent internal cyber risks as well.
Internal Threat Sources
If you think most data breaches are due to malicious insiders, you’d be wrong. Forrester found that only 12% of security incidents are caused by disgruntled employees with mal intent. Whereas, a whopping 27% of security breaches were caused by employees’ inadvertent misuse of data.
Bridging the Gap
As a SMB, protecting against internal vulnerabilities is important because 50% of companies that experience a data breach fold within six months. Your business can’t afford to be without checks and balances to ensure internal risks are minimized.
A comprehensive security-as-a-service solution should include ongoing internal vulnerability detection, alerts, and remediation options.
Our 360° Security Solution
As network security threats grow more advanced by the day, protecting your company’s systems and data becomes more challenging. We will work with you to make sure your security technology is in place and running smoothly using traditional SMB security practices such as updating, patching, and managing your firewall, malware, and anti-virus solutions.
In addition, we will work with you to provide unique security services that go way beyond these standard technologies to make sure your internal cybersecurity remains intact and hardened.

We aren’t a set-it and forget-it firm, we will be monitoring and reviewing your network’s security daily, making sure you are protected.
