Continuous Monitoring

SMS and Juniper have teamed up to help with your agency’s Continuous Monitoring Score Card


Security Operations

With risks increasing and cyber threats evolving, an agency CISO’s only defense is one that allows multiple departments to collaborate and share what outside threats are trying to breach their networks and applications. Tying it all together in a unified IT Security Operation can not only detect the current threat, but also predict future attacks.


SMS understands the dilemma that today’s CISO has when it comes to a well-managed unified IT Security Operations Center that communicates effectively between departments, time zones and even boarders when needed. Our commercially certified Cyber security Engineers work with your agency to assess your security structure, typical and non-typical threats and map out a solution that complies with a myriad of IA policies, separation of duties, and government mandates.


Our approach is to architect, integrate, and manage unified IT Security Operations environment that includes intrusion detection, firewalls, perimeter defense, antivirus, malware, spam, insider threat, and mission production; ensuring implementation of an overall proactive security environment across an enterprise. The SMS unified IT Security Operations solution provides prioritization, oversight and disclosure of key risks and vulnerabilities; and provides end-to-end vulnerability management services throughout the risk life cycle.


SMS’ Cybersecurity Engineers utilize the latest Enterprise Security Management (ESM) tools and technologies in your Unified IT Security Operations Center and provide rapid and transparent updates to keep current with ever-evolving threats. At SMS, we are fully trained and able to leverage the latest hardware and applications necessary to ensure the confidentiality, integrity and availability of your IT systems.
