Boston, Massachusetts (PRWEB) May 09, 2017
EiQ Networks, a pioneer in hybrid security as a service, today announced a new co-managed SIEM and log management offering called SOCVue® for Splunk Enterprise Security (ES). Offered as a subscription service, this newest addition to the SOCVue line goes beyond a standard co-managed service to offer a highly integrated, comprehensive, and effective information security monitoring program that combines people, process, and technology to organizations using Splunk ES.
Through the Splunk Technology Partner (TAP) program, EiQ developed tight integration between Splunk ES and EiQ’s Security Operations and Analytics Platform – SOCVue. This integration allows SOCVue to enrich Splunk alert data with additional contextual information such as threat Intelligence to identify and detect malicious activity and minimize false positives.

EiQ security experts will also assist in security content engineering, as well as developing and implementing alerts and correlation rules to identify anomalies and thwart potential cyber attacks. Customers will be able to leverage SOCVue security analysts to conduct on-demand forensics investigations to find the cause of any issue. EiQ’s team will also help develop executive, compliance, and security reports to meet various compliance mandates such as PCI DSS, SOX, GLBA, HIPAA, FFIEC, COBIT, NIST, and more.
The EiQ SOC team will filter thousands of alerts down to a single snapshot of an organization’s current security and compliance posture – saving both time and money.
