Managed Services Agent
The Movaci Managed Services Agent is the platform used when we establish a Managed Services Agreement with our Customers. We leverage a multitude of features of our Managed Services Agent throughout our Service Offerings. You also have the option of using our Agent without signing up to a support agreement. This agent offering is for monitoring and the use of the agent’s features, only. This agent offering by itself does not include any remediation or support services. Any remediation or support services provided, with your authorization, will be subject to an hourly charge.
Key Features of the Security Agent
We understand your networks performance and infrastructure past your firewall, from source to destination and everything in between.
At its most fundamental level, networking is about delivering services to users consistently and reliably. Whether your applications are hosted internally or in the cloud, understanding the critical network paths that deliver these services is paramount to ensuring your users will have the services they need. Our NetPath feature uses advanced probing to detect the network path from a source server to a destination service, even when traceroute can’t. This provides us the deep visibility into critical network paths regardless of location: on- or off- premises, or in a hybrid IT environment. With NetPath, we can quickly troubleshoot hot spots across the entire delivery chain.
Features of NetPath
24/7 Monitoring and History:
Track every hop and view latency historically or in real-time. NetPath can be set up with 10-minute intervals for monitoring, plus it saves all historical data on path performance—saving time troubleshooting by having an incremental timeline of path history for the last 30 days.
Performance and QoS Monitoring:
We know about outages before your users. The NetPath feature collects performance metrics and details of the network connectivity between the source and destination nodes, thus enabling us to see the end-to-end performance that a user is experiencing and be notified once thresholds are crossed for packet loss and latency.
We understand your provider’s network better than they do with visibility into the entire network path. NetPath delivers information on one or multiple paths a network packet may take to reach its destination; enabling us to look into the cloud and identify a problem quickly, even if it’s outside of your own network.
Identify a problem and the organization to contact to solve it. NetPath collects information, including company and contact information of external nodes in a network path; enabling our support staff to quickly identify where, when, and why a node may be impacted.
We solve Problems for Users via Lightning-Fast Remote Access

IT Consulting Assessment
This is the most comprehensive IT assessment.
The assessment will provide your organization with the broadest insights of any IT assessment module.
Your IT Network Assessment will consist of the following elements:
This Report presents you with a summary of your overall risk score based on your scan, along with some simple charts to show the problem areas. Each problem area represents a task that should be added to a remediation plan.
Network Management Plan
This report will prioritize issues based on the issue’s risk score. A listing of all affected computers, users, or sub-systems will be provided along with recommended actions.
The schematic shows the basic network structure, with convenient drill-downs into each group of like workstations. Each device is annotated with important identifying configuration information and is color-coded based on its status.
Full Detail Report
Our scan will pull literally hundreds of pages of end-user network activity and configuration data. This report includes every detail presented in line-item fashion. The report is organized by section with a table of contents to help you locate the specific findings of interest, and problem areas are conveniently highlighted in red, making it easy to spot individual problems to be rectified.
Asset Detail Report
For each network scan, this report provides detailed information on each of the individual assets discovered by the Assessment. This report is ideal for cataloging and documenting the complete settings and configurations for individual workstations and servers.
Full Detail Change Report
Everyone knows that a computer network is a dynamic environment and as such is constantly changing. And a Network Assessment is only a snapshot of the network status at the time the assessment is run. That’s why we include a valuable Network Assessment Comparison Report. Every time you run an assessment on a given network, the software generates a unique encrypted data file containing all the findings.
IT SWOT Analysis
Your IT assessments will include site photos, policies, and additional information we collect from client interviews & on-site inspections.
Backup and Disaster Recovery Needs Analysis Report – Report presents an analysis of the Backup/Disaster Recovery needs for an environment. This report includes both discovered information regarding the storage needs of an environment along with analysis of both onsite and offsite backup requirements.

We also give you the ability to output all of the assets and configurations uncovered by our scan and export it into an Excel file format. Once in Excel, you’ll be able to take the data and import it into your favorite applications.
Response Report – This report will represent the data collected from our technical questions interview.
Optional Quarterly Business Report
This report compares one time period to a previous one forming the basis for a Quarterly Business Review meeting. It centers on changes rather than detailed data and shows overall trending.
Disaster Recovery Planning
A Well-Crafted IT Disaster Recovery Plan Ensures You Are Prepared for Anything
With guidance from our disaster recovery specialists, your customized disaster recovery plan helps you avoid significant loss, so your business stays connected and running smoothly.
Studies have shown that for companies that experience a “major loss” of computer records, 43 percent never reopened, 51 percent closed within two years of the loss, and only 6 percent survived over the long-term. Having a well-crafted IT disaster recovery and business continuity strategy grounded in a robust data backup and recovery solution is essential.
Loss of data could mean lost emails, accounting data, patient or client files, company records, or client records. It also means potential loss of revenue.
Movaci’s IT Disaster Recovery Consulting Team specializes in helping our customers devise near bulletproof IT Disaster Recovery Plans, so they can have peace of mind that critical systems and processes are safe, and/or can recover from any potential data loss situation.
Business Continuity Planning
Along with an IT Disaster Recovery Plan, a Business Continuity Plan is the blueprint for how businesses plan to survive everything from local equipment failure to global disaster. Data-oriented BCP is an indispensable component of business planning that poses challenges for businesses of all sizes. Most smaller businesses lack the in-house IT resources to carry out the demanding planning, technical, and process requirements.
Therefore, many SMB’s either neglect to implement any data-oriented business continuity plan or approach data backup and recovery in a sporadic, rudimentary fashion that fails to conform to the best practices of BCP. Our Disaster Recovery Consulting Team is ready to create your plan of action for you.
Securing the effective barriers between your business and the risks to ensure its safety and resilience for years to come.

PCI DSS Assessments
The PCI Assessment will provide your organization with the broadest insights of any IT assessment module.
Your PCI Assessment will consist of the following elements:
PCI Policies and Procedures Document
The Policy and Procedures are the best practices that our industry experts have formulated to comply with the technical requirements of the PCI DSS. The policies spell out what your organization will do, while the procedures detail how you will do it. In the event of a PCI Compliance audit, the first things an auditor will inspect are the Policies and Procedures documentation. This is more than a suggested way of doing business. The Policies and Procedures have been carefully thought out and vetted, referencing specific sections in the PCI DSS Requirements and supported by the other reports included with the PCI Compliance module.
PCI Management Plan
Based on the findings in the Risk Analysis, the organization must create a Risk Management Plan with tasks required to minimize, avoid, or respond to risks. Beyond gathering information, our assessment provides a risk scoring matrix that an organization can use to prioritize risks and appropriately allocate money and resources and ensure that issues identified are issues solved. The Risk Management plan defines the strategies and tactics the organization will use to address its risks.
Evidence of PCI Compliance
Just performing PCI-compliant tasks is not enough. Audits and investigations require evidence that compliance tasks have been carried out and completed. Documentation must be kept for six years. The Evidence of Compliance includes log-in files, patch analysis, user & computer information, and other source material to support your compliance activities. When all is said and done, the proof to proper documentation is accessible and the detail to satisfy an auditor or investigator is included in this report.
PCI Risk Analysis Report
PCI is a risk-based security framework and the production of a Risk Analysis is one of primary requirements for PCI compliance. In fact, a Risk Analysis is the foundation for the entire security program. It identifies the locations of electronic stores of, and/or the transmission of Cardholder Data, vulnerabilities to the security of the data, and threats that might act on the vulnerabilities, and estimates both the likelihood and the impact of a threat acting on a vulnerability. The Risk Analysis helps Card Processing Merchants and their 3rd party Service Providers to identify the components of the Cardholder Data Environment (CDE), how the data moves within, and in and out of the organization. It identifies what protections are in place and where there is a need for more. The Risk Analysis results in a list of items that must be remediated to ensure the security and confidentiality of Cardholder Data at rest and/or during its transmission. The Risk Analysis must be run or updated at least annually, more often if anything significant changes that could affect one or more system components in the CDE itself.
External Network Vulnerability Scan
Detailed reports showing security holes and warnings, informational items including CVSS scores as scanned from outside the target network. External vulnerabilities could allow a malicious attacker access the internal network..
Internal Network Vulnerability Scan
Detailed reports showing security holes and warnings, informational items including CVSS scores as scanned from inside the target network. Closing internal vulnerabilities helps prevent external attackers (once inside a network) and internal users from exploiting weaknesses typically protected by external firewalls.
PCI Pre-Scan Questionnaire
This questionnaire contains a list of questions about physical and technical security that cannot be gathered automatically. The survey includes questions ranging from how facility controls access, firewall information, application development, to authentication and change management standards.
External Port Security Worksheet
This worksheet allows you to document business justifications for all of the allowed ports, the protocol configured to use a specific port, and the documentation of any insecure configurations implemented and in use for a given protocol.
Cardholder Data Environment ID Worksheet
The Cardholder Data Environment Worksheet takes the list of computers gathered by the Data Collector and lets you identify those that store or access Cardholder Data. This is an effective tool in developing data management strategies including secure storage and encryption.
Necessary Functions Worksheet
This worksheet enables the PCI readiness specialist to inspect and document the features and capabilities Antivirus Software deployed on computers throughout network both in and out of the Cardholder Data Environment (CDE).
Server Function ID Worksheet
Per PCI DSS Requirement 2.1.1, only one function per server can be implemented in order to prevent functions that require different security levels from co-existing on the same server. The Service Function Identification worksheet enables you to document server roles (web server, database server, DNS server, etc.) and the functions activated on each server (real/physical or virtual) within the Cardholder Data Environment (CDE).
User Identification Worksheet
The User Identification Worksheet takes the list of users gathered by the Data Collector and lets you identify whether they are an employee or vendor. Users who should have been terminated and should have had their access terminated can also be identified. This is an effective tool to determine if unauthorized users have access to protected information. It also is a good indicator of the efforts the organization goes to so terminated employees and vendors have their access quickly disabled. Another benefit is that you can review the user list to identify generic logins, such as Admin, Billing Office, etc., which are not allowed by PCI since each user is required to be uniquely identified.

The PCI Compliance Executive Report provides a summary of any vulnerabilities discovered, their severity, CVSS Score and exceptions while the PCI Detailed Vulnerability Report provides expanded information, including descriptions of the nature of the vulnerability and remediation suggestions if applicable.
The HIPAA Assessment will provide your organization with the broadest insights of any IT assessment module.
Your HIPAA Assessment will consist of the following elements:
HIPAA Policies and Procedures
The Policy and Procedures are the best practices that our industry experts have formulated to comply with the technical requirements of the HIPAA Security Rule. The policies spell out what your organization will do, while the procedures detail how you will do it. In the event of an audit, the first thing an auditor will inspect are the Policies and Procedures documentation. This is more than a suggested way of doing business. The Policies and Procedures have been carefully thought out and vetted, referencing specific code sections in the Security Rule and supported by the other reports include with the HIPAA Compliance module.
HIPAA Risk Analysis
HIPAA is a risk-based security framework and the production of a Risk Analysis is one of the primary requirements of the HIPAA Security Rule’s Administrative Safeguards. In fact, a Risk Analysis is the foundation for the entire security program. It identifies the locations of electronic Protected Health Information (ePHI), vulnerabilities to the security of the data, threats that might act on the vulnerabilities, and estimates both the likelihood and the impact of a threat acting on a vulnerability. The Risk Analysis helps HIPAA Covered Entities and Business Associates identify the locations of their protected data, how the data moves within, and in and out of, the organization. It identifies what protections are in place and where there is a need for more. The Risk Analysis results in a list of items that must be remediated to ensure the security and confidentiality of ePHI. The value of a Risk Analysis cannot be overstated. Every major data breach enforcement of HIPAA, some with penalties over $1 million, have cited the absence of, or an ineffective, Risk Analysis as the underlying cause of the data breach. The Risk Analysis must be run or updated at least annually, or more often if anything significant changes that could affect ePHI.
HIPAA Risk Profile
A Risk Analysis should be done no less than once a year. However, Network Detective has created an abbreviated version of the Risk Analysis called the HIPAA Risk Profile designed to provide interim reporting in a streamlined and almost completely automated manner. Whether performed monthly or quarterly, the Risk Profile updates the Risk Analysis and documents progress in addressing previously identified risks and finds new ones that may have otherwise been missed and resulted in a data breach.
HIPAA Management Plan – Based on the findings in the Risk Analysis, the organization must create a Risk Management Plan with tasks required to minimize, avoid, or respond to risks. Beyond gathering information, Network Detective provides a risk scoring matrix that an organization can use to prioritize risks and appropriately allocate money and resources and ensure that issues identified are issues solved. The Risk Management plan defines the strategies and tactics the organization will use to address its risks.
External Network Vulnerability Scan
Detailed reports showing security holes and warnings, informational items including CVSS scores as scanned from outside the target network. External vulnerabilities could allow a malicious attacker access to the internal network.
HIPAA On-Site Survey – The On-site Survey is an extensive list of questions about physical and technical security that cannot be gathered automatically. The survey includes questions ranging from how facility doors are locked, firewall information, how faxes are managed, and whether servers are on-site, in a data center, or in the Cloud.
Disk Encryption Report – Encryption is such an effective tool used to protect data that if an encrypted device is lost then it does not have to be reported as a data breach. The Disk Encryption Report identifies each drive and volume across the network, whether it is fixed or removable, and if Encryption is active.
Evidence of HIPAA Compliance
Just performing HIPAA-compliant tasks is not enough. Audits and investigations require evidence that compliant tasks have been carried out and completed. Documentation must be kept for six years. The Evidence of Compliance includes log-in files, patch analysis, user & computer information, and other source material to support your compliance activities. When all is said and done, the proof to proper documentation is accessible and the detail to satisfy an auditor or investigator is included in this report.
File Scan Report
The underlying cause identified for many data breaches is that the organization did not know that protected data was stored on a device that was lost or stolen. After a breach of 4 million patient records, a hospital executive said, “Based on our policies, that data should not have been on those systems.” The File Scan Report identifies data files stored on computers, servers, and storage devices. It does not read the files or access them, but just looks at the title and file type. This report is useful to identify local data files that may not be protected. Based on this information the risk of a breach could be avoided if the data was moved to a more secure location or mitigated by encrypting the device to protect the data and avoid a data breach investigation.
The User Identification Worksheet takes the list of users gathered by the Data Collector and lets you identify whether they are an employee or vendor. Users who should have been terminated and should have had their access terminated can also be identified. This is an effective tool to determine if unauthorized users have access to protected information. It also is a good indicator of the efforts the organization goes to so terminated employees and vendors have their access quickly disabled. Another benefit is that you can review the user list to identify generic logins, such as Nurse, Billing Office, etc., which are not allowed by HIPAA since each user is required to be uniquely identified. To save time, the system allows you to enter default settings for all users and just change some as needed.
The Computer Identification Worksheet takes the list of computers gathered by the Data Collector and lets you identify those that store or access ePHI. This is an effective tool in developing data management strategies including secure storage and encryption. To save time, the system allows you to enter default settings for all computers and just change some as needed.
The Network Share Identification Worksheet takes the list of network shares gathered by the Data Collector and lets you identify those that store or access ePHI. This is an effective tool in developing data management strategies including secure storage and encryption. To save time, the system allows you to enter default settings for all network shares and just change some as needed.
A set of individual documents are provided to show detailed information and the raw data back up of the Evidence of Compliance. These include the various interviews and worksheets as well as detailed data collections on shares and login analysis.
