How secure am I? This is an ever-present and daunting question every stakeholder of an organization faces. And, to find the answer and subsequent peace of mind, they have to wait for quarterly sprints while the IT security teams create reliable reports. Now, this leads to another pain point where the teams have to track, manage, and analyze a large amount of data, controls, processes, tools, and stakeholders. There also lies the problem of invisible/undetected security threats looming over their heads—because what you can’t see also matters! Mitigating these challenges through cutting-edge cybersecurity software solutions and services is Raleigh-based SolonTek. The company has developed a cyber intelligence platform, Valkerie, that offers a holistic visual representation of the security posture of organizations with role-based access controls and generates compliance-ready reports, enabling every stakeholder to view vulnerabilities based on their unique environment and allows them to make informed decisions. “We help healthcare providers to answer the security-related questions in real time about what is the likelihood, impact and severity during the event of an incident,” says Sara Spencer, CEO of SolonTek.

Valkerie is built on real-time data allowing intelligent automation and control verification for trust frameworks. It seamlessly integrates with the data in an existing computing environment and can also be an all-inclusive solution with built-in vulnerability scanning, third-party application security, identity and access management, and more. By employing artificial intelligence and machine learning-based algorithms, Valkerie conducts risk assessments and generates compliance-ready data reports. It also provides technical support and training as required. This proactive visibility to detect, analyze, and mitigate cyber-attacks before they occur not only saves money but also frees up IT teams to focus on important tasks.

Led by industry experts and powered by robust research and development effort, SolonTek operates as a standalone managed service provider (MSP), or an enhancement to existing in-house IT services and adopts a top-down approach for business owners, board, C-Suite, cybersecurity, and IT professionals. The company focuses on bringing a true-enterprise grade solution by catering to the unique needs of clients and provides customizable solutions. For instance, in the healthcare sector, the pain points range from IoT devices, legacy devices to third-party medical devices. SolonTek ensures that each challenge is taken into account and creates easy-to-use, customized solutions that extract actionable insights from frameworks saving time and effort for organizations. The company also offers off-the-shelf products as per the clients’ requirements.

Apart from the healthcare sector, SolonTek provides solutions to organizations across industries such as SMBs, government contractors, and CPA/Attorneys. Highlighting the capabilities of its solutions, Sara recalls an instance wherein the company helped a CPA firm in South Caroline that wished to find out their security gaps. The client had formed a recent partnership and had concerns over their security posture. Utilizing Valkerie’s digital risk management feature, SolonTek was able to perform a risk assessment in two weeks and provide an action plan to close those gaps while helping the client track their program moving forward. The owners also liked the company’s top-down approach as they were not technology-focused but wanted to answer their security-related questions without leading day-to-day security programs. By integrating with MSP, Valkerie enabled them to view their own insights and implement network and tracking cycle, user training and other controls to reduce the risk of phishing. The automated security program also continuously monitors and reviews access control for Azure, verifies security controls, and tests security configurations looking for uncommon configurations.

Having carved its own unique niche in the industry, SolonTek is gearing up to launch the public data MSP for Valkerie. The company is also looking forward to advertising and preparing for the seed round at the beginning of this year and expand its technical team to ensure superior quality services and products. SolonTek focuses on customer acquisition and retention through its offerings such that they provide a solution and not yet another pain point. “We strive to stay ahead in R&D to outpace emerging technologies in areas such as AI/ML automation and blockchain algorithms to guard security control while we are sleeping,” concludes Sara.
