Empowering IT to Protect Against and Respond to Cyber Threats, while Engaging in Ongoing Defense Refinement 

March 5, 2024, Ann Arbor, Mich. — OTAVA®,  global leader in secure and compliant multi-cloud solutions, today unveiled its S.E.C.U.R.E. Framework, created to help organizations significantly improve their security posture through evaluation, analysis, and step-by-step actions. 

Today’s dynamic climate demands a layered approach to security so that, when necessary, businesses can minimize downtime and mitigate potential damage. OTAVA’s S.E.C.U.R.E. Framework is a strategic process that delivers isolated and controlled best practices for implementing a strengthened security posture across the entire IT ecosystem.  

Based on an acronym that stands for Shrink, Examine, Contain, Undo, Recover, and Evaluate, OTAVA’s S.E.C.U.R.E.  Framework represents an incremental path that leads organizations to an understanding of the areas of vulnerability and guides them on how to fortify their business continuity. 

“With AI fully in the mix, cyber threats have reached a tipping point.  Attack vectors are changing so fast that it has become nearly impossible to avoid being breached, hacked, or otherwise compromised,” said Brian Hoekelman, Vice President of Business Development, OTAVA. “Achieving a strong cybersecurity strategy is complex and can be overwhelming. We created the S.E.C.U.R.E. Framework to help businesses know where to start. It carves out the individual aspects of security so that each can be assessed and acted on more easily and effectively.”   

OTAVA’s S.E.C.U.R.E. Framework results in a blueprint for protection. The elements include:  

Shrink: Reduce the size of the attack surface and protect access points.  

Examine:  Monitor and analyze anomalies and event threats.  

Contain:  Restrict the attack vectors to reduce the proliferation of any attack.  

Undo:  Take action to isolate and restore infected data. 

Recover:  Achieve business continuity of operations. 

Evaluate:  Engage in continuous improvement of your security posture.
