Our goal is to provide businesses with a level of network protection typically only afforded by large corporations.
We aim to bring high quality technology, support and service to the small to medium business, helping protect their business from cyber threats.
At bluedog we believe that security is about people not technology, always.
The world has changed over the last few decades, with dramatic technological changes and advances.
At bluedog, we put our people first and technology second. By doing that, we can deliver our promise to protect our client’s most valuable possessions, their business. We stand side by side, fighting the same enemy until we have become victorious.
What drives us? Passion.
Security is no longer a matter of technology alone, it requires the expertise and collaboration of people. The reality is good technology is the combination of both people and process.
When security consultancy companies are asked to perform an assessment, the scope is almost always a fixed technical application. When looking at the surroundings, a broad variety of problems can be identified that are non-existent within the scope of the original assessment. The technical application is secure, but the company’s crown jewels are ripe for the picking.
At bluedog we believe that security starts with people and that both security and crisis management are essential for success. Our hardware box is nothing more than our eyes and ears within your network. It is the combination of our team monitoring your network data, combined with our incident response process that will help you fight the bad guys. Ultimately this will help reduce the time between incident discover and resolution as much as possible, which is our primary goal.
In the past technology was easily fooled and breaches happened most often due to software bugs. Those days are in the past as many of the software providers now have an extremely well protected product set. Getting in through a technical flaw has become a rare instance.
The vast array of network protection solutions out there to mitigate such threats tell us that that these attacks still happen. This can be seen every day just by reading the news. Data breaches occur again and again. But why do they still happen? Mainly because of a lack of the right processes and controls. When people and process don’t work hand in hand, technology fails. Issues appear in application code that shouldn’t have been there in the first place. Internet facing services can be misconfigured and remain unpatched due to a missing or non-controlled patch policy.
When hackers are requested for help, they look at the result: the technology stack. They use this baseline to create a snapshot state. This doesn’t look at the people involved, or processes used to get to this point. Fixing problems at the end is notoriously hard and expensive.
It is only through the collaboration of systems and support that it will become possible to fight cyber attackers and effectively protect our crown jewels, our business. At bluedog we believe that security is about people not technology, always.
