As cyber attacks continue to evolve, organizations across the globe are driven to fortify their security strategies. According to Avast Software, a leading antivirus provider, during the Wannacry cyberattack there were more than 213,000 detections across 112 countries. These statistics reflect the fact that with the advancement of technology, adversaries are improving their attack methods, reinforcing the role of a managed security service provider in safeguarding critical infrastructure and data. Recognizing the changing threat landscape, NorthState’s Technology Solutions business unit provides secure, enterprise-class infrastructure and security solutions engineered to address the requirements of a diverse range of businesses. NorthState assists organizations worldwide in achieving business outcomes and maximizing the value of their IT investments through managed security services designed to enable the business, detect cyber attacks, and remediate issues that hinder critical business operations.

At NorthState, industry experts strive to understand the unique requirements of a client’s business before providing a customized solution.“We gain situational awareness of our client’s environment and couple that with our deep understanding of cyberthreats to design and deploy intelligent and context driven security monitoring and management solutions,” explains Gaudy Jandron, Vice President of Managed Services Design and Quality, NorthState.
