Prioritizing Current Problems and predicting Future Ones: How MonsterCloud.com Creates a Plan

MonsterCloud.com is a managed cyber security platform that protects the infrastructures of small businesses. Small businesses are especially at risk for cyber attacks. It is the lay of the land. Larger firms have powerful systems that work at a large scale. They may include built-in warehouse infrastructure protection. These systems come at a massive cost.

The MonsterCloud.com system captures that scale of these levels of protection and makes it more compact for a small business. A system at that scale would be too large and cumbersome for a small firm that needs adaptability and flexibility. The team members at MonsterCloud ultimately attack back at threats, but these threats are prioritized through the entire scale. MonsterCloud creates a plan and executes it based on the wealth of information out there and the threats the client is potentially exposed to.

It all begins with a security assessment, also known as a risk audit. The system will cover the current infrastructure as it would appear any normal day. It then accumulates a series of potential holes in the system and opens up a list of the potential threats it is exposed to. The system then organizes and prioritizes the data based on a few factors, such as:

  • Relevance
  • The size of the threat
  • The current condition of the pitfall
  • The resources required to patch it
  • Cost
  • The current state of the business

All of these considerations play into how the team will prioritize action against these threats. Any system promising constant protection from any and all threats is perhaps overplaying their hand. It isn’t exactly possible. In the right hands (and specifically active hands) the system can constantly monitor and proactively protect. It is not a reactive system, which is common in a basic antivirus program. Antivirus software reacts to a breach by blocking it at the end-point. It then updates based on that data. The threat got close; arguably too close. Superior systems get outside the immediate buffer and actively work to build the infrastructure up based on the potential of threats. The system prioritizes all efforts for the greatest impact. It is a system that fights back, and hard, to protect.
