Protect Against Threats with Multilayered Network Security

Cybersecurity is no longer a luxury, but a necessity. Having multiple-layered security ensures your data is safe in storage and during transmission. With Pact-One’s cybersecurity solutions, you can gain peace of mind and protect your practice’s data, assets, and people from cybercrime.

Cybersecurity Included in Service Agreements


Network Monitoring & Alert Response

As a first line of defense, you’ll receive a top-rated firewall that acts as a protective barrier between your business’ internal network and the outside world - providing ongoing monitoring and alert response when things don’t look or seem right.


Endpoint & Ransomware Protection

From antivirus and antispam software to patch management and endpoint detection response (EDR), these tools and services work to protect the endpoints (desktop computers, laptops, servers) on your dental practice network.


Managed Detection & Response (MDR)

Through MDR, your dental practice gains a 24/7/365 security detail. A security operations center (SOC) of experts actively monitors your network for indicators of threats including phishing, malware, cloud cyberthreats, and lateral movement cyberattacks.


Vulnerability Scans

Continuous scans of your network helping to proactively identify and resolve any security weaknesses in your systems to reduce the risk of hackers exploiting vulnerabilities and compromising your dental practice.


Backup & Disaster Recovery Solutions

HIPAA compliant data backup & disaster recovery solutions, such as our Direct to Cloud or Immediate Disaster Recovery & Cloud Backup, protect your dental office data behind the scenes with regular automated backup schedules and monitoring – helping your practice get back to business quickly in the event of a disaster.

Cybersecurity Add-Ons


Email Security

Our email security offering includes phishing protection, spam filtering, and security awareness training - helping prevent harmful Business Email Compromise (a top cyber threat for small businesses).


Secure Remote Access

Whether you have staff that works remotely, or you need to access your office for an emergency, our secure remote access solution enables users to access the dental office network from remote locations.


Managed Device Encryption

This added layer of network security ensures that your data is protected should your physical devices (computer, server) be stolen. The device is encrypted with code and only accessible with a specific key.


Password Management

Struggling to keep all the accounts and passwords aligned? The sticky note approach is never a good idea. Our password manager helps you create and securely store passwords - eliminating costly errors.

While antivirus software is an important component of your cybersecurity strategy, it is not enough on its own. Modern cyber threats have advanced and often bypass traditional antivirus solutions. It's essential to implement additional layers of security such as EDR, MDR, and regular security assessments to ensure your dental office is fully protected.

Protecting your dental office from cyber threats involves a multi-layered approach:

Endpoint Detection and Response, also known as EDR (not to be confused with electronic dental records), is a cybersecurity solution that continually monitors, detects, and responds to advanced threats and security incidents on all connected endpoints (desktop computers, laptops, servers, and mobile devices).

For more in-depth information check out our blog “What is Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR)”.

Managed Detection and Response (MDR) acts as a personal security team for your dental practice. At its core, MDR is an outsourced service (Security-as-a-Service) that combines technology with human expertise to oversee and manage threats to your IT infrastructure. This service is ideal for dental offices that require robust security but may not have the in-house expertise to manage complex cybersecurity operations.

Yes, it is highly recommended for dental practices to have cyber liability insurance. This type of insurance helps cover financial losses and legal expenses associated with data breaches, cyberattacks, and other cyber incidents. It provides an additional layer of protection, ensuring your practice can recover quickly from any cyber-related disruptions.

No. But we do offer many cybersecurity training resources for dental offices. Our resources help educate your staff on best practices for maintaining cybersecurity, recognizing phishing attempts, and responding to potential threats. By empowering your team with knowledge, you significantly reduce the risk of human error, which is a common entry point for cyberattacks.

Check out these resources:

For optimal network security in your dental office, we recommend the following tools and services:

  • Firewall Protection
  • Antivirus and Anti-Malware Software
  • Endpoint Detection C Response (EDR)
  • Managed Detection C Response (MDR)
  • Regular Vulnerability Assessments
  • Cybersecurity Training for Staff
  • Secure Backup Solutions

To ensure your dental office is protected against cyber threats, conduct regular security audits and vulnerability assessments. These evaluations help identify any weaknesses in your security infrastructure. Additionally, employing comprehensive security solutions such as EDR, MDR, and continuous monitoring will provide ongoing protection and peace of mind.
