Specializing in Threat Monitoring, Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM), and Network Monitoring, we are capable of providing an all-in-one solution designed to maximize business continuity. In a world where downtime can cost as much as $9,000 per minute, our holistic approach to monitoring aims to keep your systems reliable, secure, and highly operational.

Patch and Vulnerability Management

Keeping systems up to date is crucial to maintaining a strong cybersecurity posture. It’s also time-consuming. ACS Managed IT Services can offload patch management and vulnerability management for your hardware, software, and applications to ensure updates stay current and security gaps and vulnerabilities are identified and remediated. This guarantees a secure and stable environment, all while freeing up internal IT departments to tackle more important initiatives.

In addition to enhancing your security posture, proactive patch and vulnerability management helps our clients enhance compliance to key legal and regulatory requirements like HIPAA or GDPR.

Endpoint Detection and Response & Managed Detection and Response

Organizations face cybersecurity challenges in the fast-paced digital world. One wrong click on a harmful link can lead to severe consequences. To address these threats, ACS offers a powerful combination of Advanced Threat Protection (ATP) and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) services.

Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)

Our EDR solution monitors and responds to security incidents on individual endpoints, such as workstations, laptops, servers, and mobile devices. EDR goes beyond traditional antivirus measures and actively monitors endpoints for suspicious activities or anomalies. EDR analyzes endpoint behavior to quickly detect and respond to threats that traditional security measures may miss.

Managed Detection and Response (MDR)

Our MDR solution offers comprehensive security monitoring and response across your entire network, not just individual endpoints. MDR is a step beyond traditional security systems, providing 24/7 surveillance and analysis of network activities. It proactively detects and responds to threats across your IT environment, including on-premises, cloud, and hybrid systems. MDR services are powered by a combination of advanced technology and human expertise, ensuring rapid identification and response to threats. Allowing for a more dynamic defense against sophisticated cyber threats, ensuring that your organization's security posture is robust and resilient.

Network Asset Discovery

Does your business struggle with keeping accurate IT inventory? ACS’ custom asset discovery solution Infrastructure Discovery & Analysis, provides complete network visibility, keeping you informed of risks, utilization, inventory aging, and more.

Discovery & Analysis includes network assessments, reports, asset data access, a network map, and a custom dashboard. We package these features together to save you time and money.

Our clients report enhanced compliance and security postures, and peace of mind knowing they have control over their network. But that’s just the beginning! Other benefits include:

1. See all connected assets on your network in one view, making it easy to find devices that require attention.
2. No more manual tracking – instead, have access to timely, up-to-date data as your network evolves.
3. Outsourcing expensive, time-consuming scans and instead paying affordable flat fees that encompass expert analysis of your network and devices.
4. Simplify your network management with clear visibility. No more surprises or uncertainty about replacing or upgrading devices in the future.
