Solitaire Interglobal Ltd. (SIL) is a leading supplier of predictive performance expert services. SIL provides analysis and recommendations for resolution of business-critical issues by leveraging years of data, coupled with extensive artificial intelligence tools. One of the many services that SIL provides is that of Security Posture Assessment (SPA). SIL's SPA services provide a rapid analysis of the security controls and structures that are necessary for an organization in today’s challenging market. The SPA service examines all non-physical security aspects within the IT environment. With the comprehensive nature of the SIL SPA service, a clear summary of the issues facing the organization can be prioritized and addressed. Whether an organization is trying to understand the exposure to IP theft, susceptibility to intrusion, exposure to malware and viral infections, SIL’s analysis and summation can be used to understand the main vulnerabilities to be faced. Additional modeling within the SPA provides projected remediation costs, timelines and priority categories. All analysis is backed by the SIL heuristic database, with over 200+ PB of detailed real-world data.

SIL customers have used the SPA services to find vulnerabilities in their IT operations, such as:

  • Application storage of unsecured data
  • Lack of governance structures
  • Weaknesses in application deployment routines
  • Lack of disaster recovery planning, testing and execution
  • Shortfalls in IT process monitoring, with attendant analysis

SIL’s SPA services perform a general analysis of problem areas, risk and exposure hot spots and procedural shortfalls. Since all of SIL services are fixed bid, the customer knows exactly what the cost will be and has a comprehensive list of the deliverables before the project starts. The normal timeframe for the SPA project is 3-4 weeks, with little effort needed on the part of the customer staff. SIL’s tools and extensive AI processing make the collection of information from the customer rapid and minimally invasive. Most interactions for the SPA service are handled remotely, with secured data transfer each way. The results of the SPA are suitable for handoff to an implementing team. The report comes complete with project plan, resource and skill lists and task completion metrics.

Working with SIL on your team greatly enhances the safety and protection of your data and IT processes.
