Proven Managed Security Service Solutions for Accounting Firms


With cyberattacks getting smarter every day, you need a strong, proven IT provider with the experience and knowledge to prevent, detect, and combat these destructive viruses. As a Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP), Cetrom’s goal is to provide you and your team with the most secure and reliable technologies and resources to give you the access you need to do your job securely.

Our proven cloud solution is backed by our multi-level approach to cybersecurity:

  • Managed Detection and Response (MDR): Cetrom's MDR solution 

    combines advanced technology, expert analysts, and proactive threat hunting to protect businesses from cyber threats. Cetrom clients already benefit from our MDR solution at the server level. Cetrom takes it a step further and is offering MDR for local workstations. Cetrom's MDR solution includes 24/7 monitoring and analysis of the network, endpoints, cloud, and email environments, as well as rapid response and remediation capabilities to contain and eliminate attacks. If a real threat is detected, our Managed Detection and Response (MDR) solution helps mitigate that threat in real-time, helping clients sleep at night.

  • Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR): Cetrom's EDR solutions monitor and analyze the activity and behavior of endpoints, such as laptops, desktops, servers, or mobile devices. Our EDR tools, like NGAVs, collect and store data from endpoints and use various techniques, such as signatures, heuristics, machine learning, or behavioral analysis, to identify and alert potential threats. Cetrom's EDR tools can also perform automated or manual actions to contain or remediate threats, such as isolating infected devices, blocking malicious processes, or deleting malicious files.
  • Data Encryption at Rest & In Transit: Cetrom delivers encryptions for data at rest, stored at our data centers, and when data is being transferred between networks. This method helps prevent unauthorized access to data at rest and third-party interception of that data while in transit.
  • Deploy Intrusion Detection & Prevention Systems: Cetrom actively monitors network or system activities for malicious activities or policy violations and reviews these reports to gain visibility into existing weak entry points and help avoid possible breaches in the future.
  • Cetrom Connect: Cetrom Connect is a universal API technology that enables secure and reliable communication between networks over the Internet. With Cetrom Connect, Cetrom can securely connect your networks, including the Cetrom virtual desktop, Microsoft 365, Active Directory Domain Services, your local network, cloud printing, and more—eliminating the need for local on-site servers.
  • Triple Data Backup Protection: Cetrom performs two daily backups using two disconnected methodologies from the network. Additionally, replication of client data is performed from the Data Center to the client’s site for maximum security. Further, we leverage Amazon Web Services for a third backup method.
  • Proactive Patch Management: Cetrom performs regularly scheduled updates to patch system vulnerabilities and helps maintain overall platform security, performance, and stability. This effort is critical to reducing the risk of a cyberattack. Attackers often exploit unpatched systems to gain access to sensitive information. CPA firms should have a process for testing and applying patches and updates in a controlled and secure manner to ensure unintended consequences, such as compatibility issues or system downtime, do not impact systems.
  • Next-generation Antivirus (NGAV): Cetrom invested in advanced threat protection technologies like Next-Generation Antivirus (NGAV). NGAV goes beyond the traditional signature-based detection methods used by traditional antivirus software and employs a more proactive and behavior-based approach to threat detection and prevention.
  • Least Privilege Model: This model restricts access to sensitive information and systems to only those users who need it to perform their job duties. It helps reduce the risk of unauthorized access and data breaches. In the most miniature privilege model, users are only granted the minimum access necessary to perform their job duties, which makes it easier to identify the source of a breach if one does occur.
  • Implement Multi-factor Authentication (MFA) for Everything: MFA is essential in increasing a firm's cybersecurity posture. MFA requires users to provide two or more forms of authentication, such as a password and a security token, before accessing sensitive information. This added layer of security helps reduce the risk of unauthorized access and data breaches. MFA can also be implemented using biometric authentication, such as a fingerprint or facial recognition, in addition to a password.
  • Ongoing Cybersecurity Awareness Training: Cybercriminals often target employees to gain access to sensitive information and systems, making it crucial for employees to understand the risks and identify and respond to threats. Cetrom regularly sends security reminders and notices to educate its clients and provide ways to help keep data secure. We highly recommend adopting a cybersecurity awareness program like KnowBe4.
  • Verified & Tested Disaster Recovery Plan: Cetrom performs monthly disaster recovery plan drills to ensure quick response times. We also work with clients to help build their own business continuity plan so that they can continue working in the event of an unexpected outage.

With the huge costs associated with cybercrime, it’s understandable why most firms prioritize cybersecurity. Even though it can be difficult to measure, there are ways to increase cybersecurity ROI and effectiveness. Using preventive and predictive safety practices, Cetrom can help prevent cyber threats from penetrating your network, help you gain control over your IT, and help keep your valuable data secure.
