Silicon Mountains believes that infrastructure management is a series of unique stepping stones that help clients navigate the unknown. Most important, active infrastructure management is the cornerstone of meaningful strategic plans. Active management provides the lead in rationalizing cyber security efforts by demanding, through a comprehensive and systematic platform, adherence and accountability both within and outside an institution’s community. Adherence and accountability lead to reduced vectors of entry and thus the ability to anticipate both the direction and scope of attacks.
Silicon Mountains Infrastructure Management System starts with a complex set of questions and corresponding answers in order to create an individualized template of an institution’s cyber security strengths and weaknesses. Some of these matrixes are institutional specific, others global and still others strategic. Silicon Mountains then utilizes these results to provide the institution with the optimal path to address its vulnerabilities as well as a strategy for implementation. Silicon Mountains is committed to finding client solutions that reach beyond regulatory compliance as a standard for cyber security and to significantly narrow the playing field so that intruders are playing within our rule book rather than theirs. This entails:
- creating and using a comprehensive inventory system of all internet-connected equipment and devices to align with common allies such as big data algorithms and cloud resources to canvass all the connected devices to search for anomalies;
- leveraging technology effectively to ensure that the most recent functionality and protection is available and active; and,
- enlisting the support of the entire institutional infrastructure in creating a cyber resilient environment.
Silicon Mountains then utilizes this Infrastructure Management System to seamlessly integrate all internet-connected equipment and devices into its proprietary CRAM – Cyber Resilient IT Asset Management® platform. Any future equipment and device purchases can be easily added into the institution’s Infrastructure Management System ensuring that all institutional assets are brought within the protection of CRAM® and eliminating any associated external and internal vulnerabilities. Silicon Mountains offers, in conjunction with its Infrastructure Management System, vehicles for lease/purchase, joint venture or other financing alternatives for future equipment acquisitions to facilitate the immediate integration of new equipment into the existing Infrastructure Management System and cyber protection umbrella.
