eSilo is excited to announce a new Cybersecurity Health Check designed specifically to meet the needs of small and medium-sized business (SMBs) and the IT consultants and Managed Service Providers (MSPs) that work with them. 

These organizations often struggle to dedicate enough time, resources, and expertise to build a proactive cybersecurity program, and instead must be reactive in the moment, designing response strategies on the fly in reaction to real or suspected cyber events.

What Is It

eSilo’s Cybersecurity Health Check is a powerful assessment tool that helps organizations objectively evaluate their compliance, risk, and security weaknesses. Often, these groups are still early in their journey towards understanding their cybersecurity posture, and are looking for expert guidance on what security controls they need and how to go about implementing them. 

With this in mind, this assessment was specifically designed for organizations with fewer than 20 employees and who typically do not yet have or need a dedicated IT manager, the entire process is very simple and easy to follow by a non-technical business leader.  

Any business leader can identify a range of security weaknesses, including unsafe data handling practices by staff members, and systems, accounts or devices that are missing core cybersecurity protections by taking advantage of eSilo’s Cybersecurity Health Check. The Health Check Report is an easy to follow guide that takes the mystery out of what to do next because each finding is accompanied by a detailed expectation of industry standards and industry best practices.

According to eSilo CEO, Cathy Miron, when these assessments are completed, “companies are often surprised to discover their cyber hygiene score, and how that compares to where they thought they would be.” She goes on to say, “very often, small and midsize organizations over-state the importance of basic elements like antivirus and firewalls, and fail to implement the next level of controls needed to keep data confidential and secure.” 

Miron continues, “When we take a leadership team through the results of our we assessment, and make suggestions for how to remediate common weaknesses, we actually see the light bulb go on.” That’s where, according to Miron, eSilo’s Cybersecurity Health Check assessment helps any SMB or MSP get started on their IT security journey.
