With technology upgrades, organizations also need security solutions to protect their digital assets and information. However, security implementation is more than mere product installations. Technology needs to be managed effectively, requiring adequate monitoring and remediation. Unfortunately, most enterprises’ IT departments, caught up with workloads of managing day to day IT operations, fall short in efficiently handling security operations. They may not be well-experienced security operations. On the other hand, security assurance demands more attention and effort than ever. For instance, phishing via email has become an urgent security concern for many organizations. Although firms implement email security tools, they fail to keep their users adequately informed via security training on ways to identify suspicious emails. This is where the managed security providers hold immense value proposition. To this end, Illinois-based Dura-Tech Enterprises, with their expertise in leveraging Fortinet’s comprehensive security stack, comes into the picture. The company offers security solutions such as firewalls, DNS security, network monitoring, and SIEM services. Dura-Tech manages the patching and security updates of workstations, servers, switches, firewalls, and everything within networks for finance, insurance, public safety, and services companies.
“There is no magic device or software that can be put into a network to ensure the safety and security of data,” says Todd Creek, CEO of Dura-Tech. To secure clients’ systems from attacks, Dura-Tech applies various layers of security into the systems and networks. With the in-depth assessment of technology and networks, the company identifies the security loopholes, network setups, or configurations that need to be addressed and then deploys the necessary solutions. “There is a need to correlate the data between different devices and layers of the network to secure these collectively, and that’s what we do,” adds Creek.
In addition, the company applies extra layers of security, such as dark web monitoring, endpoint detection and response solutions as well as advanced AI-based AV that are needed to complete comprehensive security solutions. These enable clients to detect any compromise in the real-time and address it before it could cause any damage.

Dura-Tech strives to align its solutions and services with evolving compliance mandates such as GDPR and HIPAA. Adherence to the latter enabled the firm to acquire several satisfied clients from the healthcare space, where it has become more crucial than ever to protect sensitive patient data and medical records. In addition to delivering holistic managed security services, Dura-Tech holds over two decades of experience as a managed IT services provider for small businesses, offering full-service solutions. The company also handles project and vendor management for its clients. Dura-Tech works as partners with its clients and helps them fulfill their goals by understanding their unique business requirements. The company realizes that the adoption of a plethora of technology and security solutions could be overwhelming and frustrating for organizations. For this reason, Dura-Tech tries to create a friendly environment for its clients while deploying the solutions without losing professionalism.
In light of their rich experience, Dura-Tech realizes that a particular set of solutions may only fit specific clients or scenarios. Therefore, the company is continually engaged in expanding its capabilities to cater to a wide range of customers and build long term partnerships with them. “We help our clients to implement technology and security solutions to secure the data that enable them to maintain and grow business and offer better services to their customers,” says Creek. “We ensure that clients can sleep at night peacefully without worrying about their data’s security.” Fortinet rolling out more cloud management and security tools translates to a tremendous learning opportunity for the company to ultimately be able to serve and secure their clients’ IT environments.
