We have pretty high standards as to what would qualify for our MSSP stack. We wanted a tool that balanced excellent features with high-quality support and proactivity. Overwatch met that criteria.
CHICAGO and STAMFORD, Conn. (PRWEB) July 28, 2020
High Wire Networks, a leading global technical field, professional and cybersecurity services company, today announced that it has partnered with The TNS Group, a leading provider of IT managed services, to distribute High Wire Network’s flagship Overwatch 24/7 solution, which combines the Overwatch 24/7 Security Operation Center (SOC) with X Detection & Response (XDR) technology to effectively cut through the noise and drill down on real threats.
The partnership gives The TNS Group the capability to offer comprehensive cybersecurity as a managed security services provider (MSSP).
“We have pretty high standards as to what would qualify for our MSSP stack,” said John Stroili, Chief Operating Officer and Chief Information Officer for The TNS Group. “We wanted a tool that balanced excellent features with high-quality support and proactivity. Overwatch met that criteria.”
The TNS Group conducted a lengthy proof of concept (POC) of the Overwatch solution to test the tools, processes and expertise before offering it to their clients.
“Our decision to partner with High Wire Networks was based on the balance between the tools and the people,” said Stroili. “If the Overwatch team did not take proactive measures with the monitoring at the level of trust we expected, it would not have mattered if the tools were polished. Overwatch offers both the trusted advisers and analysts as well as the bells and whistles.”
“In today’s crowded cybersecurity market where there are 1,500+ point solutions and not enough people to manage threats, Overwatch solves the business problem of integrating and correlating all the toolsets into one single pane of glass,” said David Barton, Chief Technology Officer for Overwatch.
The Overwatch offering provides advanced remediation to The TNS Group’s clients, which range from national businesses to nonprofit organizations in the New York City Metro Area, including Long Island, Westchester and Rockland Counties, and throughout Connecticut, New Jersey and Massachusetts.
In addition to Overwatch 24/7, the Overwatch Platform as a Service includes security awareness training, patch management and vulnerability assessment.
