Proventus, Inc. was formed with the vision to help companies secure their systems and processes, resulting in sustainable cyber-resilience that the company can rely on.
In a world where senior management is personally liable for issues such as proper cybersecurity controls and policies, personal data privacy, reporting, and compliance – cybersecurity is no longer an option to be dealt with “when the time comes,” but rather a basic, fundamental part of the business process. Without effective cybersecurity, the company and its senior management are exposed to cyber-attacks, data breaches, lawsuits, loss of reputation, and other legal implications.
Proventus, Inc. offers best of breed cybersecurity products, services and training, all focused at reducing the cyber-risk the company is exposed to. With years of experience spanning the government, public and private sectors. Connecting the worlds of cybersecurity, IT and business, Proventus Inc. offers a client-specific tailored solution
