Cybersecurity Knowledge Base

There is a common misconception that cybersecurity is synonymous with IT. That is doing your IT department a disservice; cybersecurity is a vital part of your IT department, but not the department itself. Alaris looks “under the hood,” pinpointing crucial networks, end-points and medical equipment that your IT department established, then gauges system vulnerabilities. Cyber criminals attack low-hanging fruit, the sites which provide easy access. With our personalized detection monitoring and ‘honeypot” lures, we make you a less likely target for breach.
