Ultimately, Information Security relies upon the quality of the people you have dedicated to the task. Sure there is a technology component to information and network security but in the end you need to have top performing security professionals to make it all work.

Unless you have been living under a rock you already know that there is a massive security professional shortage. And if you have been in the market for one or more of these folks (who are about as scarce as Unicorns) you also know that in order to get one interested in even having a cup of coffee with you, you’re going to have to pony up some significant amounts of cash.

The Shortage is Even Worse in Chicago

Just when you thought it couldn’t get worse, it turns out it already has. As Cory Scott over at LinkedIn shows, Chicagoland is experiencing a net outflow of security professionals!

With our headquarters in Chicago we can attest to the rare and endangered nature of the security professional in our own back yard.

What’s an Organization to do?

Fortunately, we saw this shortage coming many years ago and positioned ourselves to be able to offer Information Security as a Service. This means that you do not need to worry about finding the right technologies and keeping them up to date.  More importantly though, given the super tight market for qualified security professionals, you do not need to locate, attract, train and retain these super expensive assets because we manage the whole function for you!

An example of our outsourced services is KNACMAN. This service, which is based upon Forescout’s CounterACT platform provides world-class NAC without the capital outlay and human capital requirements that can make it cost prohibitive.
