NIST & CMMC COMPLIANCE
The Cybersecurity Maturity Model Certification (CMMC) is a unified standard for implementing cybersecurity across the defense industrial base (DIB), which includes over 300,000 companies in the supply chain. The CMMC is the DoD’s response to significant compromises of sensitive defense information located on contractors’ information systems. NIST SP 800-171 is a NIST Special Publication that provides recommended requirements for protecting the confidentiality of controlled unclassified information (CUI).
CLOUD SOLUTIONS PROVIDER (CSP)
A cloud service provider is a third-party company offering a cloud-based platform, infrastructure, application, or storage services. Much like a homeowner would pay for a utility such as electricity or gas, companies typically have to pay only for the amount of cloud services they use, as business demands require. ANS Networking is a CSP (Cloud Solutions Provider). We welcome the opportunity to discuss your businesses IT objectives.
NETWORK SECURITY / CYBERSECURITY
We utilize industry “Best Practices” in order to protect our clients’ valuable data. We work closely with all our clients to document audits and do monthly security scanning to ensure “weak spots” are addressed. ANS can facilitate PCI, HIPAA, NIST and CJIS compliance. ANS performs an initial Cybersecurity Audit for all clients during the onboarding process. This allows us to better understand your current Cybersecurity footprint. With this information we can work to remediate short-term concerns and project manage additional Cybersecurity concerns through regular maintenance.
RANSOMWARE / VIRUS PROTECTION
We have all read about the devastation Ransomware can cause on a Computer Network. We utilize our resources and take advantage of industry-certified training to constantly provide up-to-date “Best Practices” for our clients. Ransomware & Virus Protection is a constant, cyclical process that requires a mixture of OS Patches, Virus Software (Re)configuration, Router/Firmware updates, Email Filtering, URL (WEB) Filtering, and Server Configuration changes that reduces the ability of your Network Shares to be attacked.
BACKUP SOLUTIONS / DISASTER MITIGATION
Backup is a critical component to any Network Management / Disaster Mitigation plan. A valid, nightly, and tested off-site backup should be mandatory. ANS does a monthly restore to verify your data is available should you need it. We utilize a tiered approach of on-site (quick restores) and off-site cloud-based backup with verified Data Centers that store your data in multiple locations. Our Data Centers support HIPAA, ISO27001, NIST 800-53, PCI DSS, SOC 1 Type II, and SOC 2 Type II to ensure Security Requirements throughout various industries.
We offer the ability to restore your servers to a cloud space and run your infrastructure from the cloud during a hardware or physical location emergency.
