NeoNova and Dynetics to Provide Cybersecurity into Rural Areas

NeoNova, a division of NRTC and leader in network technologies and help desk services for rural ISPs, today announced a new partnership with cybersecurity innovator Dynetics.

NeoNova will now offer a comprehensive suite of cyber risk management services through Dynetics, giving its more than 260 members, as well as over 1,500 NRTC members, a way to improve security posture through enhanced cyber threat detection and protection techniques. This partnership will help ISPs assess, optimize and test their cybersecurity to minimize network intrusions and ensure attacks are identified and eradicated before significant damage occurs. For continuing measures, ISPs can take advantage of the Cyber Resilience Certification, ensuring effective cybersecurity is maintained and potentially lowering insurance costs, and cyber risk awareness training for employees, customers and communities.

For nearly 45 years, the Alabama-based Dynetics has provided engineering expertise to support national security missions. Since 2000, Dynetics has provided expertise in information security for commercial and government clients ranging in size from small local businesses to large agencies and multi-national corporations. Dynetics’ offensive security techniques are uniquely qualified to identify and mitigate weaknesses before being exploited by hackers.

“Dynetics is an innovative cybersecurity partner that is passionate about helping service providers improve their security posture and minimize risks to their environments,” said NeoNova CEO Jason McGinnis. “This partnership ensures every current and future NeoNova member has the opportunity to build a comprehensive risk management solution that will simply be unmatched in the telecommunications industry.”

Dynetics’ cyber risk management services complement the extensive network services NeoNova currently provides their members, including the NovaSecure Cybersecurity Suite, network device management, 24x7x365 Network Operation Center (NOC) monitoring, modem management, DDoS mitigation, IP address management, CALEA compliance and advanced engineering support. With the addition of Dynetics’ services, NeoNova now brings best-in-class cyber risk assessments, real-time cyber threat detection, adversarial simulations and training.

“Customers expect ISPs to not only protect their information, but also to ensure the availability of the networks they depend on each day” said Robert Dowling, cyber risk practice lead at Dynetics. “NeoNova is dedicated to going above and beyond for their members, and we are excited to work with them to bring robust, affordable and comprehensive cyber risk management services to rural America.”

NeoNova and Dynetics made this announcement today in celebration of National Cybersecurity Awareness Month, which is a collaborative effort between government and industry to ensure every American has the resources they need to stay safer and more secure online, while increasing the resiliency of the nation during cyber-threats.
