Austin, Texas (PRWEB) April 03, 2018
CyberDefenses, a leading provider of military-grade cybersecurity managed services, today announced that it is making its Managed Detection and Response offering even more robust through a partnership with AlienVault. By leveraging the AlienVault® Unified Security Management® platform to augment its suite of services, CyberDefenses continues to build upon its leadership in cybersecurity protection, Threat Hunting and Incident Response.
According to the Ponemon Institute, the average length of time it takes organizations to detect a breach is 206 days. As companies, associations and government entities face more targeted and difficult-to-detect cybersecurity threats, the ability to accurately identify nefarious activity early is the key to an effective response that minimizes damage.
Through this partnership, CyberDefenses adds AlienVault’s Security Information and Event Management (SIEM), Network Intrusion Detection System (NIDS), Host IDS (HIDS) and Vulnerability scanning capabilities to the suite of tools its 24x7 Security Operations Center (SOC) team uses to identify and respond to cybersecurity threats. Through the CyberDefenses SOC, clients can achieve not only full monitoring of their environment through AlienVault, but expert Threat Hunting and Incident Response services that provide clients with the best possible protection.
“AlienVault’s USM is a strong addition to our cybersecurity service portfolio,” said Randell Casey, CyberDefenses CEO. “Security is a complex, ever-changing game – difficult for most organizations to address effectively in-house. USM increases our team’s visibility and expedites our decision workflow – key to our expertise in identifying and responding quickly and effectively to cyber threats.”
“Our technology – combined with CyberDefenses’s expertise – provides companies of all sizes with a complete security solution at a competitive price point, even those with limited security staffs and IT budgets,” said Mike LaPeters, Vice President of Global Channels at AlienVault. “CyberDefenses can now leverage AlienVault’s proven security threat intelligence platform to help their customers reduce the time needed to detect and respond to today’s advanced threats.”
