‘Harmony’ has a few definitions, but the most relevant to Lighthouse IT Solutions is both the “pleasing arrangement of parts” and “internal calm.” This is what Lighthouse IT Solutions’ Harmony services strives to provide you with; a suite of IT solutions that work with each other and your business in order to harmonize with your workflow.

Harmony combines the following categories into one cohesive plan: infrastructure, security, business continuity & disaster recovery, technical support & systems management, and finally mobility.

Let's take a look at each of these and how your business can benefit from the perks of experiencing Harmony.

Security News

FireEye and their Red Team tools

The cybersecurity giant, FireEye, was recently hit with a cyber attack in which there was unauthorized access to their suite of tools used to evaluate the security posture of enterprise systems. In other words, this highly sophisticated threat actor took tools from this company who could then use them maliciously. Luckly, FireEye has released two blog posts with more information and a GitHub repository for detection countermeasures. This was certainly an expensive incident for them though, as well as embarrassing, time consuming, and stressful.

Making Use of the Downtime

Posted by Mark Nash on Apr 11, 2020 2:00:00 PM

Productive tasks to help your business grow during your spare time.

As we begin to enter the warmer seasons, it is natural that small businesses will find their level of activity marginally lower, especially so this year with the COVID-19 virus keeping everyone indoors. While this potential decrease in revenue can be unsettling, the increase in free time can be put to good use. Now is your chance to take an introspective look at the business.

What can be improved, strengthened, or changed?  

DIGITAL SECURITY 

The best place to start is by reviewing your business’s digital security. You should review all the security systems that your company has set up and determine how capable they are of protecting your business and its data. Talk with your employees and make sure that they are aware of what is required of them to keep the business protected. A large part of security is having a plan to mitigate damage and the appropriate follow up in the unfortunate event that your business is the victim of a cyber-attack. Check out Navigate Defense if you want tools to enhance your workforce.
