Welcome to Agency’s Blog. I want to thank everyone for the support we have received. We are excited to share what we’re working on and passionate about building something that will genuinely help protect people.
For our first post, we wanted to share thoughts on the principal issues behind the problem we are solving and on the foundation of our solution.
Cybersecurity for individuals is a huge problem- it’s different from security for companies.
Attacks can come from just about anywhere: criminal hackers trying to steal your bank account information, nation-states spying on your data, or even a jealous person attempting to humiliate you. Over the years, the threat landscape has grown exponentially because of the number of devices and the related applications we use daily.
The software and strategies to manage those risks have evolved too. Conceptual solutions such as zero-trust networks and automated threat detection AIs are now available, but they only exist in the toolbox of large enterprise organizations.
Solutions for individuals haven’t kept up. There are many reasons for this, but the primary few are that it’s too costly and complicated for an individual to set up and run. Also, most people lack the technical knowledge or discipline to implement them, the threats can’t be mitigated with software alone, and it’s cheaper for companies because they can distribute the cost of security across all their devices.
Simple antivirus software won’t protect you from phishing attacks, physical tampering with your device, or mobile apps stealing data. It takes more than any software made by a single company to get complete protection.
Agency gives individuals and families access to the best in class cybersecurity solutions executed and managed around the clock by professionals. All at an affordable price. We are discussing completely managed cyber security across all devices and proactive threat hunting. Effectively you can think of us as ADT for cybersecurity- we are your family’s personal chief security officer.
There are great cybersecurity applications already out there, but most are just good at one particular thing. They’re great at signature-based security (virus scanning) but don’t give you comprehensive network-based protection, or they don’t work on your phone at the same level as on your laptop. We knew early on that we shouldn’t reinvent the wheel when it comes to things that other software companies already do well, so on top of our own technology, we licensed world-class enterprise applications to do those things for our members. Our ultimate goal is to give our customers the absolute best.
Finally, we know the importance of the human touch. Not everything can be solved by an app. To indeed have the level of protection we know our customers need, the cornerstone of Agency is live, around-the-clock monitoring. If something happens, our dedicated team will be there to guide you to fix the issue. With Agency, you’ll never face threats alone.
Whether you’re a social media creator worried about your accounts getting hacked or a professional handling sensitive data on your personal devices, we all value our privacy and security. The effects of an attack can be devastating both financially and mentally, and Agency wants to be there to protect you.
We are hard at work perfecting our service. We can’t wait to have you try it, so please visit GetAgency.com to start the onboarding process.
