Our awesome features
Protect e-mail and files.

It is important to see results right away and your e-mail system is generally the most vulnerable asset. At the start of our engagement you delegate administrative rights to your Microsoft 365 or Google Workspace tenant. In turn, we activate AI powered enterprise e-mail and file monitoring that reduces risks of ransomware, phishing, and identity compromise.

Our awesome features
Organize security program.

Situational awareness is all about knowing what is going on with your security posture and divided into two views: internal and external. We get to know your needs and organize priorities, assets, risks, and operations. Additionally we will focus on your cyber liability, vulnerability to cyber crime, and resilience to business interruptions. We built Bento Assurance HQ to streamline this process. For advanced workloads, we partnered with Vanta to automate compliance.

Our awesome features

We recommend, implement, and optimize the controls environment. This means you have qualified information technology professionals available to administer the security components but also to help you with your complete information technology needs. Data protection is business protection, and we bring the necessary resources and people to help your company take action. We do the operational work for your or with your designated team.

Our awesome features
Reasonable effort in IT administration and oversight.

The cyber security landscape is changing, and doing nothing means denial of claims. Your insurance carrier expects you to do the bare minimum.

BCSF is a series of cyber security publications in three major categories: policy, implementation, and oversight. Collectively, it enables business owners to build and deploy an information security and compliance program.

BENTO:GUIDES is a software solution for accessing and working with the Bento Cyber Security Framework. While all BCSF core publications are accessible to anyone who registers with their company e-mail address, we offer premium subscriptions to enable companies to easily manage BCSF implementations.

All BCSF core publications are available without a subscription – they enable any small company to develop a comprehensive cyber security strategy. Entry paid subscriptions enable access to security awareness training while premium tiers give each organization a dedicated instance of GUIDES with content that can be edited. This enables companies to develop their own security management programs, track key information, and share that data with our experts.

We provide comprehensive advisory and implementation services. Customers with paid plans have access to our solution architects, informations security managers, system engineers, and support staff. Our team is your virtual CISO, IT department, IS department, and professional services team. We can help you determine what to do, how to do it, and then get you there. We provide end:end support for BCSF implementation.

Increasingly companies are asked to prove their cyber security readiness to vendors, prospects, and customers alike. For instance, your insurance company may demand proof that you are managing cyber security risks. Equally, a prospect may be concerned over your resiliency before signing a contract. Or – perhaps – a customer may suddenly becomes concerned over your risk in their supply-chain. Premium tier customers may elect to have their policies and controls audited for effectiveness by our team. The audit includes a report you may share with others and a certification seal valid for as long as you remain a subscriber (renewable every 18 months).

There are three major skillsets required to implement cyber security. Segregation of duties and experience both force your organization to leverage multiple individuals/teams in program development. Cyber Security Experts: Help you develop policy and information programs. Solution Consultants: Help you manage vendor requirements and design solutions that align your program with technical specifications. Security Engineers: do the work required to implement technical solutions.
