How Alfizo and Its Partners Can Help
Solutions are tailored for each business, so use this table as a guide rather than definitive list. By creating a custom proposal, I can deliver the most effective solution at a market-competitive price. If you are looking for commodity products, I can oftentimes pool your purchase with others to obtain volume discounts typically available only to larger companies.
Discovery + Strategic Assessment
Don’t know where to start? We’ll go through a project discovery and gather relevant information regarding your company. I’ll work with you to understand where you are, create a vision for where you want to be, and formulate a plan to get there.
Starting at $5k.
Detailed Assessment + Plan
Let’s review your company’s technologies, processes, policies, and organizational structure at a deep level. Whereas a high-level assessment might only inquire whether you have anti-virus software, a detailed assessment will look at the specific anti-virus software you have, how often the software is updated, and what individuals do when the software picks up a virus. If assessing against a specific standard (e.g. NIST 800-171, CIS Top 20, SOC 2), you’ll receive a report based on that standard as well as a remediation plan to address the most important gaps for your business. If assessing against your company’s strategic goals, you’ll receive a report on your current state, ideal future state, and a plan to move from your current state to your ideal future state.
Starting at $30k.
Outsourced IT Operations
Don’t want to handle the daily operations of an IT team? Outsource your entire program to Alfizo and its partners. We operate a 24×7 operations center using the latest technology, including e-mail protection, cloud data loss prevention, firewall, anti-malware, mobile device management, web filtering, domain name system (DNS) protection, security information and event management (SIEM), security awareness training, and more.
Starting at $2k/month for a small business.
Want to deploy a new information technology solution? Whether it’s new software or hardware, my partners and I have relationships with most of the major vendors. We can generally negotiate lower than average pricing from vendors and install what you need at scale across the United States.
Custom cash and/or shared ROI pricing. Possible volume discounts on commodity products when combined with purchases through Alfizo’s partnership network.
Third Party Risk Management
Need to assess your vendors to ensure that they are fulfilling their contractual obligations and not exposing your company to additional risk? Pull automated security reports or commission custom security questionnaires with human review.
$400 per automated report. Custom pricing for customized questionnaires with human review. Volume discounts available.
Need to write company policies? Obtain a set of templates or get custom ones written for your company based on your needs.
$4500 for a set of policy templates typical for your industry. Custom pricing for custom written policies.
Security Awareness Training
Need to bring cybersecurity awareness to your team and report on it? Sign up for training videos and/or a training platform with automated reports to show which employees completed online training.
Free for standard videos and reporting. Paid upgrades for simulated phishing, games, and additional content.
Need an engaging speaker for your event? I keep audiences engaged in a variety of settings from intimate conference rooms to stage theaters with advanced lighting and sound systems. Bring relevant and interesting technology ideas to your audience, e.g. practical cryptocurrency markets, how to build an enterprise security program, the current state of artificial intelligence, technology trends, information security at home, or fascinating stories of digital crime.
Starting at $3500.
Do you have IT questions that you need answered? Receive strategic and tactical guidance for your specific situation, both at the business level and technical level. Up-front preparation will save you headaches and money later on. Get your first 30 minutes free by scheduling a consultation below.
