Introduction: Jacadis is a security consultancy based in Columbus, Ohio that applies its “practical security” mandate to small-to-medium sized businesses and government agencies throughout the state. Jacadis used to conduct security assessments the traditional way, which entailed periodic vulnerability audits with manual software tools, correlation of vulnerability data, elimination of false positives, and explanations of the data to clients. “The old approach was really time consuming, expensive and not an effective way to demonstrate best practices in vulnerability and threat management,” says Davidson. Jacadis switched to the QualysGuard on demand vulnerability management solution.
“With QualysGuard, we know that our systems are highly secure and up to date. The service also validates that our internal security policies and regulatory mandates are enforced.”

Marine Corps Community Services (MCCS) provides members of the U.S. Marine Corps the services they need during their time in uniform—from helping them run their finances, further their education, or relocate to their next station. MCCS also provides a growing number of restaurants, clubs, and stores, including 17 main exchanges, 96 branch and convenience stores, service stations, and more than a dozen clothing stores.
The underlying IT infrastructure needed to support all of these operations is vast. It includes more than 900 routers, 300 Windows servers, approximately 160 UNIX servers, and about 160 IBM systems that handle retail point-of-sale and inventory. To make sure this infrastructure runs smoothly, the MCCS IT department employs 76 IT managers who work in its Quantico, Virginia headquarters, as well as an additional 100 field administrators who help to maintain the USMC data centers, servers, and 5,500 workstations. “It’s a big operation,” says Randy L.

- Maurice Wörnhard, Security Architect, Cartagena.
Oslo, Norway-based IT services provider Cartagena delivers IT products and services to the most demanding of small and mid-sized enterprises. And its focus on helping businesses improve their own efficiency is one of the reasons for its continued growth and success.
Many of Cartagena’s customers have only a small number of IT-personnel or don’t have IT departments of their own, which means they need support for everything from product and service selection to the deployment, management, and even security of those systems. Such a crucial aspect of IT governance as security needs the right expertise and vigilance to succeed. In that effort, Cartagena helps its customers deploy and manage their network firewalls, maintain secure access of business systems, protect servers from attack, and help maintain an effective vulnerability and risk management program.
