Myriad Advisor Solutions (Myriad), a long-established, full-service business advisory firm, is celebrating the company’s 15th anniversary by launching two new powerhouse initiatives designed to streamline and protect their clients’ business operations far into the future. Both of these programs will make their debut at the 2024 Technology Tools for Today conference (T3) for financial professionals happening January 22-25, 2024 at the Cosmopolitan Hotel & Resort in Las Vegas.
“These new initiatives represent a significant leap forward for Myriad in the realm of cybersecurity and strategic business planning,” said Leigh White, Chief Technology Officer at Myriad Advisor Solutions. “With MASDefense and Myriad Ascend Plan, we are empowering our clients to navigate the digital landscape securely while optimizing their business legacies.”
The first of these two offerings is Myriad’s MASDefense, an all-encompassing cybersecurity solution featuring advanced Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), Extended Detection and Response (XDR) capabilities, computer forensics, pen testing, and the expertise of the Security Operations Center (SOC) team. Designed to provide holistic protection against cyber threats well into the future, the system’s software aligns with the latest SEC guidelines and regulatory rulings released last year.
“At Myriad, cybersecurity isn’t a discussion, it’s our relentless commitment,” she continuned. “The first of these two offerings is Myriad’s MASDefense. Our cutting-edge solution goes beyond industry standards with advanced Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR), Extended Detection and Response (XDR), computer forensics, pen testing, and the expertise of our Security Operations Center (SOC) team. What sets us apart is our unwavering focus on remediation, not just detection. MASDefense doesn’t just keep pace, it leads, aligning seamlessly with the latest SEC guidelines and regulatory rulings. When you choose Myriad, you choose decisive, proactive cybersecurity that redefines protection against evolving threats.”
Key Features of Myriad’s MASDefense include:
EDR and XDR capabilities: MASDefense’s EDR ensures real-time monitoring and response at the endpoint level, providing threat visibility, behavioral analysis, and automated response mechanisms. XDR extends this defense by correlating data across multiple security layers, offering cross-layer visibility, automated incident response, and reduced mean time to detect and respond.
Computer forensics: The service includes robust computer forensics capabilities, empowering each organization to investigate and analyze cyber incidents thoroughly. Clients can retrieve digital evidence, understand the scope of an attack, and enhance their incident response with forensic insights.
Penetration testing: The platform goes beyond defense by offering penetration testing services, proactively assessing each organization’s security posture, identifying vulnerabilities, and strengthening defenses against potential cyber threats.
Expert SOC team: MASDefense is backed by a dedicated Security Operations Center (SOC) team. With their expertise, organizations benefit from:
