RALEIGH, US: Start-up professional services firm WireHead Security, on Monday announced that they have introduced a suite of information security and consulting services aimed at helping the SMB, to address the growing problems of online theft, cyber fraud and the steady stream of new security vulnerabilities.

Small to medium-sized organizations face special challenges in addressing the growing host of potential security problems. Among those problems are new threats such as Web applications, social engineering, and misuse of publicly available data as well as increased use of social networking and mobile computing services, said a press release.

Most IT and network managers operate with limited staff and rely on an external consulting firm to ensure they’re following up-to-date best practices. In addition, regulatory compliance requires robust security testing and analysis.

SMBs need to document the steps they’ve taken by turning report data into actionable intelligence that helps them more effectively secure their networks.

Michael Menefee, president of WireHead Security, "Despite being a priority, the rapid growth of network and cyber security threats poses a daunting challenge for IT at a time of tighter budgets and staff reductions.

He added that thats why IT and network managers often need to work with external resources like their firm, to gain the expertise they need to address information security threats proactively and guard against the growing number and types of attack.

"The problem for many is finding a firm that understands their organization’s needs and has services to match," Menefee continued.

From vulnerability assessments, penetration testing and training to effective remediation, WireHead Security delivers information security and consulting services that help small- to medium-sized organizations combat threats and institute policies and procedures to safeguard their security.

WireHead Security’s customers receive the benefits of an external team of expert security consultants who add value by bringing their knowledge and experience to clients’ security challenges, said the release.

Menefee further said that they would help clients to identify and analyze network vulnerabilities. By improving the effectiveness of their preventative security measures, their consulting and services enable their customers to better reduce business risks by re-mediating most dangerous and costly security weaknesses.
