Gone are the days when organizations could expect a well-managed firewall and an updated anti-virus to protect its network. Today, digital transformation is enticing organizations to operate in an intricate web of operating systems, applications and protocols. As a consequence, they need to go an extra mile to shield their data against vulnerabilities by performing vulnerability assessment, penetration testing and red teaming. Several Managed Security Service Providers (MSSP’s) have entered the market, promising to offer these services. But, stakeholders find it an arduous task to find the right kind of MSSP which can provide high-quality customized service for their organization in a cost-effective way.

Furtim is one such unique MSSP whose Smart Attack Orchestration platform never compromises on quality by leveraging AI and machine learning in its security testing. It provides white glove security assessment, red teaming, and penetration testing to protect organizations from internal and external threats. Furtim provides a holistic overview of organizations’ security posture through its technical and executive reports. The technical reports contain an analysis of cyber threats faced by the organization, and an evaluation of its information security, and technology teams. Whereas, its executive report for the C-suite and senior management, calls to attention systemic issues, key-findings, and the overall rating on the security pose of the organization. It guarantees accurate and consistent reports by employing iterative testing and anomaly identification in its security assessment. Moreover, it manually verifies those reports by their expert team to limit any false positives that may arise out of technical errors.
Against the backdrop of such high quality service which strives to fulfill every requirement of clients is the management team of Furtim which consists of cyber security veterans and IT executives. Before Furtim came into being in 2016, its founder Joe Luna, who is currently its COO, worked as the Director of Information Security at one of the nation’s largest Internet service provider. Similarly, its other co-founder and CTO, Raffi Erganian, has experience of working as a software engineer at Internal Research and Development (IRAD) team of Boeing Defense, Space & Security. Being at the other side of the table for years, has made them insightful of customer’s expectations as Erganian says, “We have been facing clients for years and we understand that at the end of the day, quality should never suffer.” In addition, Furtim’s purpose-built platform can serve variety of clients. Luna assures “We can protect any organization that maintains data assets.”

Furtim has served clients extending from Fortune 5 organizations to prominent start-ups. It has satisfied such a multitude range because it always ensures punctuality and cost-efficiency along with quality in the delivery of its services. Erganian rightly says, “Our prices are lower than other consultancy firms, but with significantly higher quality.” One such anecdote speaks of how Furtim performed a vendor risk assessment for a client in a limited period of two weeks. Luna states how practically impossible the task seemed as the client’s software infrastructure was situated at five different places. But, Furtim undertook this difficult mission–distributing the work amongst team members at different places, it started the work in no less than 48 hours. They checked the systems for any threats by running the penetration testing and security assessment. At last, Furtim was able to guarantee maximum security for the client on such a short notice. With such top-class service, Furtim envisions to become the leading provider of security assessment service in future with its superior penetration testing and vulnerability scanning.
