CoGuard Verify
for Manufacturing

Not needing a complex IT infrastructure, mid sized manufacturing companies often do not invest much time into validating their security, as many tools are expensive and complex and do not provide the precise validation required to protect against attack.  These companies are often moving to the cloud and really have no idea what solutions they need and how they work together. This is why we created CoGuard Verify for manufacturing. 

Step 3-Validate

Included in CoGuard Verify is continuous, automated validation of your infrastructure for up to one year. This ensures that:

  • your infrastructure remains stable and secure as it expands and new vulnerabilities are discovered

  • your IT teams have the knowledge they need to build out your infrastructure with speed and security

  • you have a high level overview of your IT infrastructure and it's level of security and compliance readiness at any given moment

Step 1-Assess

Based on the required compliance framework(s) for your organization (e.g. NIST 800-171, CMMC, HIPPA, PCI DSS), we will assess your current and planned software landscape and associated risks, ensuring that all pillars of IT (disaster recovery, backups, AntiVirus) are being addressed. In addition, configurations are discovered, assessed, and mapped through our proprietary software analyzer CoGuard. These configurations include, but are not limited to:

  • Your Authentication/SSO mechanisms, e.g. Active Directory

  • The Firewall and VPN settings of your site

  • Databases, which are (e.g.) connected to your ERP systems.

  • Web servers and ingress load balancers

Lastly, we provide vendor assessments to mitigate supply chain attacks.

Step 2-Report

Based on our assessment, we will provide you with a full report that includes:

  • Your compliance readiness score

  • Documentation for fixes required to meet compliance framework(s)

  • A complete security risk assessment on your infrastructure 

  • Tech stack recommendations based on your cloud journey and needs

  • Vendor recommendations

  • Additional documentation as required (e.g. an incident response plan, job descriptions to fill gaps in your current IT team)
