Cybersecurity is a critical concern for businesses of all sizes and industries. With the increasing sophistication of cyber threats, it's more important than ever to have a robust security strategy in place. However, many organizations lack the expertise or resources to manage their cybersecurity needs effectively. This is where professional services come in.
What are Professional Services?
Professional Services (PS) refers to the services provided by a third-party consulting firm to help organizations achieve their business goals. In the context of cybersecurity, professional services firms provide expertise, guidance, and support in designing, implementing, and managing cybersecurity solutions tailored to the specific needs of the client. In the case of Fortra Professional Services, we also often align directly with our wide product tool range, offered with deep specialism in specific areas such as File Integrity Monitoring, and Vulnerability Management.
Why are Professional Services Important in Cybersecurity?
Cybersecurity is not a one-size-fits-all solution. Each organization has unique security requirements based on its industry, size, infrastructure, compliance requirements, and risk tolerance. Professional Services experts can help assess an organization's security posture with an objective perspective and design customized solutions and assessments that can address its specific needs, both large and small.
As cybersecurity is an ever-evolving field, getting the insight of Professional Services is particularly practical. With threats and attack methods constantly changing, security solutions must adapt to keep up and so must the personnel who look to ensure value from the solutions is delivered to the business. Fortra’s PS teams have a keen focus on staying up-to-date with the latest trends, technologies, and threats in cybersecurity to provide guidance and support and keep an organization's security posture as current and effective as possible.

A Consultant’s Perspective
As a member of the Professional Services Consultancy team, I often reflect on the comments I receive from my clients during an engagement. Whether it’s deploying, tuning, or customising and expanding a solution, I’m focused on making sure the client team I’m working with is getting the highest value for their money. For me, that means sharing my knowledge and solving the problems some may have considered impossible. Creative solutions are what makes the entire Fortra PS team excited to get to work, and even after nearly a decade working with some of the tools in our portfolio, we are still developing unique use cases and options that can deliver new value for those we work with.
