Solution Overview

The #ASD8aaS is Australia’s only managed service that focuses on the Essential 8 security controls. Our leading security experts begin the process by thorough penetration testing to find out exactly how secure your current systems are, your ASD 8 maturity level and which areas need the most focus.

From there we can provide the exact level of support you require, through our modular integration options. All of our services are designed to be outsourced, removing the time-consuming nature of the security tasks, while utilising our world-leading expertise and technology resources. Our carefully selected enterprise-class vendors ensure that we can utilise our service across a heterogeneous environment including Microsoft, Apple, Unix and others.

You can choose the right level of security from our four packages, each of which relates to different levels of maturity designed by the ASD:

"The Missing Link helped us to understand our current level of maturity against the ASD Essential 8. The expertise and in-depth knowledge provided by their Security Consultants helped us immensely to decipher where we currently stand, and they delivered a roadmap to improve our overall security posture as well. Their team were very easy to deal with, and at the end of the project they delivered a brilliant report that included concise action items. I would highly recommend The Missing Link to any organisation looking to implement the ASD Essential 8."
