Today’s organizations face an environment where dependence on IT systems is higher than ever. Digitalization efficiencies and cost-reduction strategies made possible by enterprise IT systems mean there’s less reliance on people and more reliance on process automation. For many organizations, managing the automated footprint of their IT systems and associated data have proven difficult. When considering outsourcing services in light of today’s complex security environment, it’s critical for executives to implement the right strategy for their enterprise architecture and lay out a secure architecture that will adapt and grow with the organization. Security executives are ultimately best served partnering with a team that demonstrates the right balance of technical proficiency and business-oriented insight.

We’ll help your team remain focused on the North Star while continuing to evolve with your business. We’ll work with you on areas such as:
Digital transformation is underway. Security teams are tasked with anticipating changes in the technology environment as the pace of business transformation continues to accelerate. Managing the complexities with securing multi-platform environments is taxing on already overloaded teams. Working with a partner who understands how to secure myriad landscapes spanning from on-premises to cloud and hybrid environments is a necessity.
Our architects will support your team’s efforts to make sense of this complexity and help guide you on the right path to securing your environment. We’ll work with you on:
The way your business operates is continually evolving, the four walls of the traditional corporate office are no longer the secure bastion. Employees work from a variety of locations, leveraging combinations of employee- and corporate-owned devices. Managing secure access to hundreds or thousands of disparate endpoints is challenging. Understanding the various tools and approaches necessary to tackle this issue requires working with a partner familiar with a variety of modern workplace environments.
RSM architects regularly work with organizations looking to manage the complexities of securing the remote workforce. We’ll help you with:
Designing and developing secure applications require a focus on security throughout the development life cycle. Building security and automation into your development practices—whether in-house or third party—that defines security as a priority at the start and throughout your continuous integration (CI) or continuous deployment (CD) processes is a necessity. Shift-left security processes introduce security checks early during the development phase to ensure a more secure codebase from the start instead of checking for vulnerability issues at the end, which often results in costly rework and delays.
RSM application architects understand secure development practices and how to help your organization establish programs that support your specific needs. We’ll help you in areas such as:
Understanding the limits of the corporate technology landscape supporting the modern workplace is difficult and securing those environments is highly complex. The boundary-less network stretches beyond the corporate walls, circumventing traditional protective barriers and introducing a broader attack service. Working with employees to help them understand that increased vigilance is necessary to protect critical business operations and data is of utmost importance. Security teams are challenged with not only securing the corporate environments but also helping employees operate securely for a multitude of locations leveraging ever-increasing varieties of technologies.
RSM security architects continually evaluate cutting-edge security models and apply these concepts to best suit your organization’s requirements. We’ll work with you on:
Effective continuous attack surface reduction (ASR) requires a well-planned approach that considers the criticality of the organization’s data as well as regulatory and standards requirements. A solid understanding of the technology footprint and the organization’s risk-tolerance level will drive investment decisions. To give the security engineering and operations teams the right focus, the organization’s architects play a vital role in defining the strategy and approach for managing that reduction as well as how to prioritize remediation activities.
Our secure architecture and vulnerability specialists work together to establish ASR strategies incorporating these concepts in support of your business. We’ll help you with:
