What We Do
As threats grow in breadth and sophistication, the old defense in-depth approach often generates unclear priorities, drains resources and leaves gaps in protection. At MountChor Technologies, we help customers migrate to a defense in-context strategy. We bring transformative cyber expertise and mission-enabled solutions to the forefront of operations.
Our security solutions predict attacks, proactively respond to threats, ensure compliance and protect data, applications, infrastructure and endpoints.

Data & Cybersecurity Solutions:
MountChor offers data cybersecurity protection during each of the categorized states of data. From Create, Capture, Index, Store (data at rest), Share (data in transit), Manage (data in use), Archive (short, medium, and long term), and Re-use or Dispose.
There are various construction methods of achieving the proper protective measures required and the various methods can have a substantial cost impact on the project. It is most beneficial in terms of both time and money to ensure that the designer of a SCIF has substantial experience with the different potential requirement scenarios and that the contractor building the facility has had enough experience to avoid common assumptions that standard commercial contractors, without a lot of SCIF experience, would typically make.
