While you probably expected this page to say something like “Contact Us Today for your Quote”, we at Kyber will try to get you a sense of what it costs to engage with us for cyber security and secure support services.

There are many factors that go into developing a price for what you will invest in having a comprehensive security program for your organization. Some of those include:

Number of Users

Number of Locations

Type and style of the infrastructure (firewalls, switches, etc.) that you have

Number of Servers

Number of Endpoints

Etc.

One key factor to understand in deploying a comprehensive security program is how that is different from what a “traditional managed services (support) provider” would do for your organization.

A traditional managed support program would include the basics such as:

    • Help desk
    • Network monitoring
    • Endpoint antivirus
    • Backup management
    • Etc.

At Kyber, we approach supporting your network differently and deploy a complete defense in depth security program to help protect your organization from cyber attacks thereby reducing your cyber risk. To do this, we deploy many additional tools and services such as;

  • 24/7/365 Security Operations Center monitoring for cyber threats
  • Multi-factor authentication
  • DNS filtering
  • And many other components

This all aligns with our 3 phase approach to protecting your organization. In short this is to:

  • Reduce your attack surface
  • Contain any threats that do make it through
  • And prepare to recover quickly bringing your organization to full operational status

By this point you are probably thinking, “great, another sales page with no pricing on it…”. But here it comes.
While a specific price for your organization would have to be developed, you should expect your investment for each of these types of provider (traditional MSP, vs Kyber) to be:

Traditional Support Provider Kyber Cybersecurity Program

While deploying a comprehensive security program does indeed require more investment, the risk reduction we have seen by implementing this program over the years has been between 90-95%. This ultimately results in savings to your organization over time as breaches cause not only downtime and lost productivity to your organization, but also could result in fines, lost contracts and reputation damage which could cause you to lose clients and prospects.
