Solutions for Small and Micro Businesses
MainNerve is one of the fiercest proponents of cybersecurity for the Small and Micro Business (SMB). The company was one of the first to identify that the SMB was the business segment most egregiously overlooked and underserved by the cybersecurity industry as solutions and technologies that were available were usually unaffordable. To confront this oversight, MainNerve helped to found the Cybersecurity Institute for Small and Micro Businesses (CiSMB) which focuses on the cybersecurity needs of the small business owner and to find affordable solutions. To date, the company has developed proprietary Managed Security Service, Penetration Testing, and Compliance Solutions designed to protect the small business while saving them money.
MainNerve SMB Solutions are in demand for those companies that have:
- Limited budgets
- Smaller footprints of up to 200 employees
- One to Three firewalls
- Outsourced IT functions
- Limited and specific audit requirements
Cybersecurity Offerings for the Small and Micro Business
Managed Security Solutions
MainNerve’s Managed Security Services are designed to ensure that SMBs leverage technology and proprietary programming to secure themselves at an affordable cost. With its cloud based Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solution, NetForce Defender™ provides security alerting as a service. MainNerve provides an easy to install, 24/7, cutting edge solution that provides security alerts monitoring of computer logs and internet traffic to provide our SMB customers with the security they need at a price they can afford. Netforce Defender™ is integrated with MainNerve’s Adaptive Darknet™ solution which provides defense against Advanced Persistent Threats and is updated every 15 minutes with the latest threat intelligence available and also “darkholes” any attempt by infected computers to connect with malicious internet sites. So the SMB is continuously monitored and provided with alerts when their system is penetrated.
Netforce Defender protects the SMB against:
- Phishing and Pharming attacks
- Malicious Connections
- Bogon Infections
- Rogue Nation attacks
Small and Micro companies are increasingly required to comply with numerous compliance regulations such as HIPAA and PCI. Some of these mandates require companies to conduct penetration tests to ensure that they are secure. For the business owner that is concerned about cybersecurity, penetration tests provide them with a picture of the actual security of their IT architecture. MainNerve is focused on ensuring that the SMB is offered penetration tests that it can afford, some of which can cost over $30,000 for a full on Black Box test from a major cybersecurity company. MainNerve provides responsive, customized penetration tests using industry leading software tools that provide a comprehensive analysis of a customer’s IT architecture starting at under $1000 allowing companies to save money for other needs.
A Vulnerability Assessment is a rigorous scanning of a SMB company’s internal and external facing IP addresses and systems to determine the level of security by identifying known vulnerabilities in operating systems, applications and security devices. Regulations and Business Owner concerns often mandate that Vulnerability Scans take place in support of a good information security or assurance plan. Using state of the art software and tools, MainNerve experienced technicians can affordably scan thousands of IP addresses, multiple data storage facilities, multiple locations and public and private cloud to provide an accurate depiction of a SMB’s current security status. Vulnerability assessments not only outline security concerns, but, when done on a periodic basis, serve to test updates and patches ensuring that the corporate data security plan is being followed.
Compliance Solutions and Assessments
SMB Owners are increasingly aware of government regulations like HIPAA and PCI that require them to conduct rigorous audits, assessments and technical tests. With over 12 years of experience, MainNerve realizes that its SMB clients want an affordable solution to meeting these resource draining demands.
MainNerve can help the SMB customer with compliance mandates for:
- Payment Card Industry (PCI)
- Healthcare Information Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA)
MainNerve’s consultants will work with its customer’s through a variety of means to assist them with the journey to compliance. Most compliance audit assessments can be accomplished over the phone for all compliance concerns and with our HIPAAgps portal for health care customers. For those customers that require a more in depth assessment, MainNerve’s consultants can assist SMB customers through the conduct of on-site, in-depth assessments, off-site phone and interview assessments and technical assessments at very affordable prices compared to the competition. Additionally, MainNerve can assist with other compliance requirements such as penetration testing, vulnerability scanning and training.
For SMB customers in the health care space, MainNerve developed a cloud based portal called HIPAAgps, which provides an end to end compliance service requirements to ensure that companies are “on the road” to compliance. The site provides Self-Assessment Questionnaires, certifications, Road Map to Compliance, a Compliance Grade and training videos as well as encrypted storage for corporate HIPAA documents.

After undertaking MainNerve’s training programs, your employees will walk away understanding the threats that the company is under, how to identify cyber attack threats and most importantly, their responsibility to prevent hacks through proactive measures such as phishing and pharming identification, at risk employee behavior and social engineering.
