Today’s advanced security products encapsulate functionality outside the traditional definition, evolving from a single function product into multi-functional platforms. Additionally, companies are adopting hosted cloud services to build augmented security ecosystems. These products and services allow for extreme network flexibility for the enterprise operator. However, as network capabilities increase, operations and management becomes ever more complex. In this rapidly changing environment, Specialized Security Services, Inc. collaborates with clients to educate them on technological shifts and analyze ways in which these technologies can be deployed to reduce their overall security exposure. “We help firms align their business and IT strategy to take advantage of these new technology developments,” says Schanbaum.
Specialized Security Services, Inc.’s solutions carefully balance technology and operational requirements with critical information security needs. The company offers consulting services and Compliance Solution Suites, which are comprehensive security service packages that fulfill regulatory obligations and provide risk visibility. These suites provide a framework which enables firms to achieve successful compliance through a straightforward methodology, eliminating guess work.

While still meeting the overall requirements, Specialized Security Services, Inc. focuses on existing business processes, allowing for gentle course corrections instead of monumental shifts in organizational direction, which disrupt business continuity.
“We create realistic plans that meet the intent of a manageable security program by understanding their business, culture, environment, and staff,” asserts Schanbaum. Specialized Security Services, Inc.’s methodology is built from best practices within National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), International Organization for Standards (ISO), and Open Web Application Security Project (OWASP) to enable customers to maintain a truly secure environment without limiting business growth. The company also follows the latest trends in security technology, which span the enterprise, from firewalls to antivirus to vulnerability scanning and management tools. With this expertise, the company provides recommendations and evaluations of differing technologies to decrease an enterprises’ overall risk.
Having a client base that includes many Fortune 500 companies; Specialized Security Services, Inc. continues to stay at the forefront of the industry by adopting new standards as they emerge, the latest of which is Health Information Trust Alliance (HITRUST). As the healthcare market becomes more regulated, Specialized Security Services, Inc. observes a large security market emerging from hospitals to pharmacies and from medical device manufacturers to self-insured enterprises. “We will continue to adapt to these market dynamics and deliver education to all our customers about these emerging standards,” concludes Schanbaum.
