Hey there! Dealing with security threats can be tricky, but no worries – we’ve got your back. We’ll work together to figure out where your organization may be at risk, taking into account the specific challenges of your industry, and then come up with a plan to lower the chances of any breaches happening. Let’s get to work and keep your organization secure!


Security is one of the most overlooked areas among small and medium sized organizations. The reason can be a combination of many things, including a constantly evolving threat landscape, confusing options, lack of personnel with security expertise, time and budget constraints, misunderstanding of risk factors, absence of a centralized strategy, or simply the lack of time.

Businesses can overcome these constraints by working with a trusted IT partner that integrates security into all aspects of the technology infrastructure. At StepUP IT, we do exactly that, by taking a layered approach to security. 

Cybersecurity Packages

Our cybersecurity offerings cover the critical parts of the overall security solution needed by companies of all sizes, and to complement that, we provide optional add-ons and upgrade packages for organizations with more needs and/or specific compliance requirements.

Our security packages are broke down by levels, each including a combination of several services, from Essentials to Enhanced.

Essential Security
This level of security is included with our Total Managed IT Services and covers essential protections for your organization. These services enhance your security by covering the most-needed protection for any IT infrastructure – big or small. We have modeled our security strategy based on industry standards that are laid down by the Center for Internet Security (CIS) and the Controls that have been published.
Enhanced Security
This package is geared towards organizations with more needs and/or higher risk factors. It includes all the features within the Essential package, plus covers additional areas within the overall attack surface. One of the main differences from other packages, is the inclusion of a Managed Threat Response (MDR) service that is manned by a dedicated 24x7x365 Security Operations Center (SOC) team.

Cybersecurity Services

There is no silver bullet or one-size-fits-all solution to combat security threats and mitigate risks. Our TAP team works closely with you to understand your organization’s security weaknesses and threats, developing an overall strategy roadmap to improve your security posture and reduce your risks.

Endpoint/Server Protection

We include installed software on end-user devices that helps them fight viruses and other malware by detecting and automatically cleaning the infection. The solution also provides protection from ransomware encrypting the files and restoring files that do get encrypted.

Firewall and Network Device Management

Our services include complete management of perimeter security devices, such as firewalls and network switches. Keeping these devices up to date with patches and security fixes reduces the chance of compromise via any known exploits.

Secure Password Manager

We provide a secure password service to key users. This service can be extended to other users at a nominal monthly price.

Device/OS Patch Management

This is an essential part of or Managed IT services and is based on the client’s specific processes that we put in place; our Remote Monitoring and Management (RMM) tool takes care of patching and updating all operating systems. This reduces the attack surface as all systems will have latest bug fixes, thereby reducing the chance of compromise.

Web Security & Internet Content Filtering

In order to protect our users from accidentally getting compromised via malicious sites and/or harmful internet content, we provide a solution that provides this protection at the user/endpoint level. We also offer similar protection at the network perimeter layer as an option for clients who have specific firewalls in place.

Managed Detection and Response

Managed Detection and Response (MDR) takes your security threat detection to the next level! Not only does MDR add an extra layer of prevention for fending off malware, it goes even deeper to monitor and prevent attempted breaches, like credential theft. MDR is capable of identifying threats, alerting on them based on advanced analytical data, and resolving the incident with 24x7x365 incident response.

Security Policy Templates

Identify and implement security policies that work for your business. Keep policies organized and have a system in place to keep them up to date.

User Awareness Training

Start your team out on the right path with security training focused on email and cybercrimes. Test their knowledge with simulated email phishing campaigns and mini-quizzes.

Multi-Factor Authentication (MFA/2FA)

We encourage our clients to turn on MFA/2FA on all possible software and network applications. The majority of SMB clients use Office 365 for cloud apps, of which MFA is implemented to limit the chance of compromise, even if the user falls for a credential harvesting phishing scam.

Email Security

This is one the most important areas, because the majority of security compromises and cyberattacks start from an email. Apart from spam protection, the email security solution reduces the risk of threats coming in through the emails and provides the user with one more layer of protection, and also provides a way to send encrypted emails for security.

365 SaaS Backup

Ensure your Exchange Online email and SharePoint are backed up. SaaS Protection offers comprehensive backup and recovery for critical cloud data that lives in Microsoft 365.

When You Need It

We also offer several a la carte security services as one-time and recurring options.

  • External Penetration Tests
  • PCI Compliance Certification
  • HIPAA Compliance Certification
  • Annual Security Assessment
