Security and Compliance You Can Count On
Today’s business environments can be risky and most organizations need to comply with at least one regulation that requires them to protect sensitive data and systems. Time after time, however, the headlines prove that compliance-driven security programs leave the door open to data thieves and those with malicious intent.
TierPoint security solutions help your company achieve and maintain compliance with complex regulatory mandates and audit requirements, while thoroughly protecting sensitive data.

Threat Management Services
Just when you think you’ve protected yourself from one type of attack, a new one makes the headlines. That doesn’t even count the millions of attacks that go unnoticed by organizations or unreported by the press.
New mobile vulnerabilities have increased 214%; new malware variants have increased 36% and crypto-ransomware totals have increased 35%.
Detecting these security threats, recognizing the potential impact, and limiting possible damage can be time-consuming and challenging. Worse yet, a single error can cost you millions in lost revenues and fines. It takes an average of 46 days to contain a successful attack after it has been detected at an average cost of remediation of more than $21,000 per day.
TierPoint Threat Management Services keep your applications secure by leveraging the industry’s best threat management tools. We can set up a threat management portfolio that meets your current needs and grows with your business.
- Intrusion Detection and Prevention
- Vulnerability Management & Scanning
- Event/Log Monitoring and Review
Intrusion Detection and Prevention Services monitor your network and systems for any hint of malicious activity. In 2016, ransomware, malware, and DDoS attacks were the top cyber-threats facing many organizations.
The Best Offense is a Great Defense
Worried about cyber thieves lurking in your systems and getting past your firewall? The best defense is to stop them from getting inside your systems in the first place. Securing your network may actually be a more important responsibility than building it. Every year, a typical IT infrastructure incurs millions of security events, often overwhelming its IT staff. Many organizations simply don’t have the resources to manage these challenges on their own.
TierPoint offers wireless rogue detection and remediation that can be integrated into your existing infrastructure or new hardware. Our engineers can work with you to find a solution that not only meets your business requirements, but also your budget.
In addition, Virtual Private Networks (VPNs) are included with firewall services and provide encrypted private paths either site-to-site or client-to-site. The exclusive use of VPNs means that packets that are not generated and encrypted with a key unique to your VPN will not be accepted. Let TierPoint’s Managed Security Services experts keep your business available and secure, allowing you to focus on what you do best.
TierPoint Managed Firewall Services control access to client equipment within their managed hosting environment or a TierPoint Cloud Services environment. This firewall is the first line of defense in preventing unauthorized users or malicious “bots” from getting packets inside the customer network. Clients have the opportunity to define a unique firewall policy that is customized to their unique applications – allowing or denying packets based on their policy. Management of your firewall includes monitoring its performance, ensuring it is up to date with the latest filters and patches and executing client requests for policy changes.
Managed DDoS Defense
Managed DDoS Defense from TierPoint is a multi-vector DDoS attack detection and mitigation solution that helps organizations protect their data and systems from malicious threats.
Cyber attacks are increasing.
98% of organizations were hit with a cyberattack in 2016.* Experts expect that trend to continue, making these attacks almost unavoidable. But while the frequency of cyber attacks is increasing, so is the severity and nature of the threat they pose to business.
Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks overload an organization’s systems and crash the servers. At first, these attacks were designed as malicious pranks or intentional efforts to harm a business financially. More recently, threat actors have discovered that DDoS attacks provide cover, allowing them to steal valuable data while IT’s focus is on getting systems back online. Some even hold the company’s systems for ransom, demanding payment before they will call off the attack.
34% of attacks in Radware’s 2016-17 Global Application & Network Security Report were described as DDoS attacks. While almost half of attacks reported lasted less than three hours, 10% of respondents reported attacks that lasted more than a month.
Protect yourself from the inevitable.
At TierPoint, our goal is to help our clients stay protected and connected with a seamless user experience that scales to meet their needs. Our DDoS defense capabilities are owned and managed by TierPoint, giving us the control we need to provide the level of service our clients require in today’s high-threat environment.
Superior Protection – We can dynamically detect anomalous traffic patterns at the perimeter of the network, allowing us to respond and mitigate before threats get anywhere near the client environment.
Enterprise-Grade Infrastructure. Leveraging our native on-net scrubbing capability, we have direct control over detection, mitigation, and return traffic delivery. We direct traffic onto the TierPoint network for scrubbing to minimize utilization of available client bandwidth.
Enterprise Visibility for Precision Responsiveness – We are able to monitor traffic at all potential entry points to deliver prompt, targeted DDoS defense.
