Network Security

Understanding and managing risk is a cornerstone of a successful organization. Cerium Networks helps our customers reduce and mitigate risk in information technology systems in two broad areas: information security engineering and information security consulting.

Network Security Engineering

Certified and experienced data security engineers help customers design, implement, optimize and support advanced security solutions from Cisco Systems, Cisco Ironport and RSA. The deployment and management of effective tools gives customers the segmentation, visibility, and management capabilities they need to protect their networks.

Solutions include: firewalls, intrusion prevention, security information and event management, network admission control, secure mobility, email and web security, data loss prevention, and security as a managed service.

Network Security Consulting

Security assessments take the mystery out of understanding your current state of security and what to do next to improve the roles, processes and technology that keep you safe. Assessments establish a baseline for existing controls and provide a strategic, risk-based road-map for moving forward.

Independent testing of your organization’s network security posture improves the real-world level of security and measures compliance with regulatory requirements.

Whether remotely attacking your Internet-connected firewalls and web servers or conducting on-site attacks against the inside of your network, Cerium security consultants function as ethical hackers utilizing the same tools and methods that the bad guys use. The difference is that our testing is completed from an auditor’s perspective in order to comprehensively identify all existing vulnerabilities, so that you can mitigate them.

The deliverables for an assessment project include an executive summary, a risk matrix of the vulnerabilities identified, and complete recommendations on mitigation.


Cerium security consultants measure your healthcare organization’s current state of security against the HIPAA standard as defined by the National Institute of Standards and Technology. A gap analysis clearly identifies areas of strength and weakness. Detailed recommendations enable you to take proactive steps to achieve full compliance.
