Keeping You Secure & Compliant in Any Industry

We’ve worked with companies in nearly every industry. Our Secure IT Now mantra is focused on readiness as we enhance, optimize, or design a security strategy for your business. The team of security experts at IOvations will help you implement the best solutions, and provide actionable steps so your networks are available, your data is secure, and your environment is optimized to scale and meet dynamic business requirements.


We know that the financial sector is critical and also a high-value target for threat actors. A dynamic attack surface, critical transactions, and significant regulation place a high-stakes responsibility on the entire sector. At IOvations we are intimately familiar with the importance of compliance and effective security to ensure that your data, your brand, and your intellectual property are safeguarded. Our experience is focused on delivering solutions and services that emphasize security readiness.


Attacks on point-of-sale networks are happening with increasing regularity, and they have a direct impact on a company’s bottom line. Let us use our extensive experience working with retail businesses to help ward off these attacks. We can help you implement the right protection so you and your customers can feel safe, and your brand is protected. At IOvations we recognize the importance of comprehensive security for the retail sector and leveraging solutions and services that are extensible and effective.

Life Sciences & Health Care

Life sciences and health care are mission-critical to our well-being. Intellectual property, trust, and brand integrity are imperative to those developing medicines and delivering quality care. Whether it is HIPAA-related or the HITECH ACT, IOvations has the agility and expertise to meet the security demands that are required in the dynamic life sciences and health care sectors.


Studies have shown that US federal, state, and local governments ranked last in cybersecurity when compared to 17 private industries. When a government agency is hit by a cyberattack, citizens notice. We’ve worked with government agencies at the federal, state, and local levels to ensure networks stay clean and data is protected. We look beyond the infrastructure requirements and strive to enhance security profiles to scale security and intelligence across the various domains that data resides. Security readiness is our theme as we blend controls with guidelines and important regulations that government agencies must adhere to.


Utility companies are constantly being threatened by cyberattacks. This is true whether it’s from domestic forces or hackers overseas. Our team of experts can assess security posture and direct you on the critical infrastructure security policy and controls that are required to thwart the major threats. Whether it is an assessment, a penetration test, a design, or an optimization of your environment, we have the expertise to accelerate efficiencies for your security program.
