PROAPTIV Capabilities

One of the principal challenges for many clients contracting technical design, implementation, and support services is the reliability and commitment of their partners to provide the promised expert consultants versus consultants assigned to deliver. At PROAPTIV, we are committed to aligning our clients’ technical requirements with the best of our technical expertise. We have over 15 years of experience and past performance qualifications in the following areas.

Risk Management Frameworks, Cyber Kill Chains, Cyber Security Taxonomy’s, Threat Model’s, Cyber Security Blueprints, Cyber Forensics, Penetration Testing, Cyber Red Teams, Cyber Blue Teams, DevSecOps, Advanced Persistent Threats (APT), Defense-In-Depth, Advanced Threat Protection (ATP), Intrusion Detection, Intrusion Prevention, Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), Data Loss Prevention (DLP), Vulnerability Scanning, Web Security, Email Security and Network Firewalls.

These are all buzzwords that are used frequently within the Cyber Security field, but they are meaningless without the right people who have the aptitude and the tools to defend and protect your complex IT infrastructure from the dynamic, sophisticated and determined hacking-based attacks from a wide range of cyber criminals, adversaries and or state actors that are targeting your sensitive data.

ProAptiv has a cadre of Cyber Security engineers who have extensive hands-on experience with the latest cutting edge Cyber Security tools and technologies. These individuals routinely demonstrate their ability to think “outside the box” and have extensive experience in hardware/software forensics, penetration testing, security exploit/vulnerability research and analysis, reconnaissance, incident response, and compliance standards.

Their Cyber Security subject matter expertise spans cloud based architectures, mobile and wireless architectures, tactical systems, as well as enterprise network architectures. When it comes to security, ProAptiv employees understand that no two systems have the same requirements or are architected by the same people with the same expertise. As a result, flexibility is the key to our services for our customers. ProAptiv is just as comfortable working with ubiquitous Cisco and Juniper networking devices, as they are with identifying vulnerabilities hidden within a legacy Wi-Fi router left on the network that may no longer have a supporting vendor. ProAptiv can flexibly work with Microsoft and Linux-based operating systems, but has expertly engineered and assessed systems that do not include such software.

ProAptiv team members are passionate about their work and stay abreast of the latest security developments. ProAptiv has successfully helped their clients strengthen their security posture in the following areas:
  • Cyber Security Engineering (access control, network design)
  • Cyber Security Operation (prevention, detection and continuity planning)
  • Governance (audit and compliance)
  • Risk Assessment (vulnerability assessment and penetration testing)
  • Threat Intelligence (zero-day threats, advanced persistent threats and exploits)
  • Cyber Security Frameworks and Standards (NIST, ICD 503 and CNSSI)
If your organization needs advanced Cyber Security Engineering expertise, let ProAptiv come and help secure your vital infrastructure from the ever-present threats that are seeking to compromise and infiltrate your organization.

Characterize Predict, Analyze and Advance using big data

ProAptiv can assist with analyzing data so that customers can determine the best path forward and avoid undesirable outcomes. We help analyze big data to influence decision-making. By using tools and statistical analysis, we can help our customers reduce uncertainty, improve results and create meaning from raw data. Some of the areas of expertise that we deliver on include:

  • Understand and visualize complex data
  • Improve decision making through data analysis
  • Predictive data analysis to reduce uncertainty
  • Knowledge discovery
  • Improved performance and understanding of your business through exploratory data analysis (EDA), which aims to find patterns and relationships in data, and confirmatory data analysis (CDA), which applies statistical techniques to determine whether hypotheses about a data set are true or false.
