A phishing attack is when someone sends a message (typically via email) with the intent of either getting your credentials (username/password) or installing malicious software on your device. @Sparkovation, we monitor your email and use the latest in AI technology to detect phishing attacks before they reach your end user.
Credentials are compromised when a user’s username and password are collected by an unauthorized outside party. Often sold on the dark web for pennies, these credentials are then used to enter your business and start a ransom attack. Our cybersecurity tools allow us to monitor the darkweb for your credentials, and head off a breach before it happens.
This is the level where data is ANONYMOUS. Within the Deep Web is the part of the internet called the Dark Web. A complex encrypted system not visible to traditional search engines that can only be accessed by a special browser called Tor.
Transactions, IPs, profiles, locations, etc. are totally anonymous, making it the perfect place for many illegal activities to happen. It’s not illegal by itself but that’s where criminal sites live, we proactively guard you and your team against identity and credential theft 24×7.
We offer IT consulting and hybrid cloud design services to assure your business is taking advantage of the most optimal performance solution architecture the industry has to offer.
Our solutioning capability spans across enterprise architecture domains: business, data, application and technology and uses this reference framework to design performance driven solutions. Once a performance based solution is fully implemented, only tuning would likely be required until the next major design cycle.
We design your company’s solution based on use cases, industry models, existing performance data and business goals which then informs us of how to design for optimal performance.
Given our vendor agnostic approach and persistent budgetary constraints in the small & mid sized market, we can objectively recommend the best possible solution from the lens of the owner. You need a solution that scales with you as you respond to a rapidly evolving environment.
