AristotleInsight

AristotleInsight

AristotleInsight® is the world’s first Continuous Diagnostics & Mitigation (CDM) Platform that bridges the gap between security frameworks and real-world I.T. Technologies. Based on the revolutionary UDAPE® technology, AristotleInsight® makes frameworks such as FFIEC, GIAC, FISMA, HIPPA, NIST 800-53, COBIT5, and PCI more than just checklists or paperwork. We continuously monitor and report on:

  • - Insider Threat, Behavior, and Data/Application access
  • - Vulnerabilities, Cyber Hygiene, and data in motion
  • - Configurations, Changes, orphans, and loop backs
  • - Privilege User, APT, and rogue device tracking

UDAPE® not only allows for the identification and trends of risk as called for in the security frameworks, but also for detailed actionable items. For example: Identify not only a configuration orphan, but what administrator caused it; Identify not only a vulnerability, but if it was caused by enumeration, cyber hygiene upgrade issue, or end of life risk acceptance; Not only does it notify first level managers of potential issues, but explains to them why and what the next steps are.

Staples Technology Solutions and HP Secured Managed Print Services

Staples Technology Solutions and HP Secured Managed Print Services

As technology continues to proliferate, so will security concerns. Digital documents are easy to copy, save, send and print, so it is critical to engender a work culture of heightened awareness of document security, while also implementing processes to reduce risk to a minimum. MPS is an excellent solution for reducing document security risk while significantly improving printer fleet efficiency. MPS also delivers operational benefits by offloading routine maintenance of the printer fleet from IT or office staff, while simultaneously improving work-flow. A reputable MPS provider is also a trusted partner who can provide expert advice on hardware selection and the implementation of security measures at the device level.

While human beings will always be the biggest source of vulnerability for document security, printers have proven to be the #1 blind-spot in an organizations network, and therefore the easiest entry point for malicious intrusion. An HP/Staples MPS program can dramatically reduce the “human risk” by rules-based document management at the desktop, and also provide the worlds most secure printers available. Ultimately, MPS can be the front line of defense in print fleet and document security compliance.
