Security Architecture

Security Architecture

HSC has experience providing Commercial, Federal, and Defense clients in attaining defense-in-depth architecture goals to provide technical safeguards for securing the enterprise.  We believe that to best address cybersecurity the best practice is to build secure functionality as part of the original design.  Building resiliency into the original design provides your enterprise with the capability to handle threats without interrupting service, business process, or mission objectives.

Incorporating security as part of the overall architecture provides the benefit of cost savings by avoiding expensive security control retrofitting, minimizes compliance deficiencies, and provides your enterprise with comprehensive security at all levels of defense-in-depth tiers.
