Security Solutions for Peace of Mind


Data is the lifeblood of organizations. In this digital age, data is exponentially increasing, data is accessible everywhere, and data is targeted. The headlines are filled daily with companies reeling from the negative impacts of data breaches. But it doesn’t have to be that way.

Our philosophy is whether your business is compliance driven or security driven, building effective protection strategies takes a balanced risk management approach. Being compliant does not mean you are secure. And being secure does not mean you are invulnerable.

Be prepared against the vulnerabilities and threats to your business mission. Helping companies defend against cyberattacks, fraud, and all forms of malware is what we are all about. We know you can’t do it all on your own and we can help.


Today’s monitoring and detection strategies call for rapid innovation and extra diligence. No one likes to think they will be the victim of a cyberattack or fraud, but it happens every day to companies of all sizes. The new reality companies face is that no one is beyond reach and everyone is a target.

Early detection measures assist in neutralizing cyberattacks and threats before damage is done. The difference between detecting cyberattacks or fraudulent activity within the first 24 hours makes a significant difference to your business.

The systems, technologies, and processes for equipping your organization for early and accurate detection of threats can be complicated. Relax! We have done the hard work for you. We specialize in the planning, design, and implementation of ongoing monitoring to detect and deal with problems early. That means peace of mind for you.


How you initially respond to security incidents determines whether the incident becomes manageable or whether it quickly gets out of hand causing damage to your brand, reputation, and material loss for your company. Unfortunately, experience tells us that many organizations are ill-equipped for proper response to handling security incidents.

Building effective incident response capabilities takes careful planning, understanding of modern threats, guiding risk management principles and participation of stakeholders at all levels of the organization. There is a fine line between a well-executed response and chaos.

We help companies respond to security incidents the right way. Our team is assisting customers with measured and effective responses to deal with all kinds of threats and security incidents on a daily basis. Let us put our experience to work for you.

Over the past 5+ years, Sword & Shield has provided excellent information security and compliance services to BVS. Those services include network vulnerability assessment/penetration testing, web application security assessment, managed security service, and security consultation. Across multiple product engagements, Sword & Shield’s team has consistently demonstrated professionalism, knowledge, flexibility, responsiveness, and thoroughness. They go to great lengths to help us solve problems or find the right solutions – even if it requires additional work on their part that is above and beyond their core skills.
Since 2010, Sword & Shield has consistently delivered excellent information security and compliance services to us, while constantly seeking ways to improve their performance. Their passion for delivering high quality services to their clients has been evident in how they have treated us and our overall experience during numerous engagements over the past several years. Sword & Shield has been a valuable partner to CIC in ensuring that we are not only complying with the Experian Independent Third Party Assessment (EI3PA) standards, but also implementing information security best practices throughout our organization.
We have continued our relationship with Sword & Shield for the past three years due to their fast response time, quality of tools, service and information, friendly demeanor and dynamic schedule availability. Our experience has been that from the first Environment Scoping meeting through the Report on Findings, the Sword & Shield team is always courteous, approachable and patient.
Since 2011, Sword & Shield has performed our annual Experian Independent Third Party Assessment (EI3PA) and Payment Card Industry (PCI) assessments. Their wealth of expertise helps us launch new partner integrations on aggressive timelines. We have continued to work with Sword & Shield year after year due to their professionalism and their willingness to help us stay in budget and on time. Sword & Shield is rare in its ability to recognize the uniqueness of our business and security needs and provide cost-effective services.
Since 2008, Sword & Shield has been a Netsmart strategic information security and compliance partner. Their services have played a key role in the continued expansion of our enterprise infrastructure as we support the diverse needs of our nationwide client base of health and human services provider organizations. Through our collaborative and ongoing partnership, Sword & Shield works closely with our application development and information security teams to ensure the continued security of Netsmart applications.
Sword & Shield helped us take our HIPAA due diligence to the next level. Their mock OCR Investigation not only helped us test our controls and response, but also allowed us to practice this exercise in a simulated, real-world environment. This is an exercise I would suggest for any healthcare organization that is serious about HIPAA Compliance.
Since 2013, Sword & Shield has worked with us on a variety of HIPAA Risk Analysis and Remediation projects. We evaluated many vendors and found only Sword & Shield could offer a Risk Analysis that actually followed OCR recommendations and stayed within budget. Our customers appreciate the partnership approach that we have with Sword & Shield. In turn, they've provided recommendations to other customers who need a HIPAA/MU RA. We also greatly value the fact that Sword & Shield has been flexible in working with us, actually enhancing their product offering based on our feedback.
When I started my business eight years ago, I went to Sword & Shield Enterprise Security for all my risk, compliance and information security needs. From setting up my business to dealing with data protection issues, Sword & Shield has always been dependable, straightforward and honest. They have been able to help us with these needs through the rapid growth that VelaPoint has been experiencing, from the 20 staff members we started with to the more than 250 employees we work with today.
