At EliteSec, we understand the danger that the current global pandemic caused by covid-19 is causing to our economy. Many organizations have moved to a full work-from-home strategy for their employees, while others have had to take more drastic measures and have been forced to lay off employees. While we cannot help those who have been laid off from their jobs, we can at least offer help to organizations to focus on what they do best, without the additional fear of wondering if the new work-from-home configurations they put together are working or not.
Helping SMBs One Scan At A Time
Starting today until May 31st, 2020, or until we hit 50 organizations (whichever comes first), EliteSec will be offering SMBs with 250 employees or less a flat-fee, no frills scan of your publicly facing network infrastructure that you have setup for your employees so they can work from home, for $500 CAD. This is a simple check to ensure that you haven’t left any doors open for malicious actors to take advantage of.
We don’t have a cure, but we want to help however we can. Organizations are under enough stress as it is; there’s no need to also worry about hackers breaking in and running a ransomware campaign against your organization as well.
You likely have questions. Here are some common questions and answers we hope can help you.
Why are you charging for this and not doing it for free?
Organizations value something that they pay for. People often value something based on it’s cost, so sadly “free” often means people won’t take the results seriously, which in turn means that it won’t help as much as we’re hoping it will.
What are you going to scan for?
We’ll do a very basic network scan: firewalls, VPNs, servers, etc. We’re looking for the potentially misconfigured system, or missing authentication component that an attacker may stumble across and take advantage of. We’re not going to try to exploit these systems, nor are we looking to test your web application. This is strictly a scan of the networking gear you may have had to setup in haste to get your workers access to equipment they need to work-from-home.
Will you provide help patching/remediating any findings?
No. We’ll provide you with scan results and suggestions on what you should consider, but providing remediation support is beyond the scope of this offer.
How do we get in touch?
This blog post will be updated when this offer ends. We really want to help as many organizations as possible, and it is often the SMBs without full time security staff who suffer the most. We’d like to do our part to help fix that during these troubling times.
Looking for additional help with your own security program? EliteSec can help. Contact us today. We will sit down with you and discuss what makes the most sense for your organization. We offer a free 1 hour consultation to determine what’s best for you.
