What is Pathway’s Essential Security Suite?

Pathway’s Essential Security Suite is a budget-friendly package consisting of the minimum professional cybersecurity systems, tools and practices required by smaller organizations to stay secure. Going beyond just antivirus and firewalls, it includes advanced endpoint protection, multi-factor authentication and other applications, which are vital for protecting against the most common cyber threats, such as ransomware.


How most Organizations Approach Security

Many organizations take a fragmented approach to cybersecurity, often relying primarily on antivirus software and firewalls for protection. This leaves you open to multiple other vulnerabilities and opportunities for bad actors to breach security.

Gaps in Defence

Without a unified strategy, even simple threats can become major issues.

Increased Complacency

Rudimentary solutions create a false sense of security.

Higher Overhead Costs

Maintaining and updating multiple solutions in-house means increased expenses.

Delayed Detection

Lack of alarm correlation and synchronized analysis cause blind spots in threat detection.

Inefficient Resource Utilization

Diverting manpower and resources to manage multiple tools reduces overall efficiency.

What are the Benefits?

By integrating critical security measures into a single, cohesive framework, you are assured of more complete security coverage for your digital assets. The Essential Security Suite goes well beyond simple measures while keeping your costs under control.

Enhanced Security Posture

Strengthens your defence with more extensive coverage.

Increased Compliance Readiness

Provides a strong foundation for meeting regulatory requirements for communication, documentation, and processes.

Reduced Risk of Security Breaches

Carefully chosen security services and tools address the most common attack vectors and methods used against small companies.

Improved Employee Vigilance

Empowers your staff to recognize suspicious activities such as phishing.

Optimized Operational Efficiency

Simplifies security operations through an integrated approach.
