Businesses are simply understaffed and lack the needed IT security expertise to thwart attacks by cyber-criminals. We can offset these challenges, and take on responsibility for reviewing, investigating and managing incidents, while our clients continue to focus on their mission-critical work.
MADISON, Wis. (PRWEB) September 12, 2019
When it comes to skilled IT security workers, there is a global shortage. Currently, there are an estimated 2.93 million cybersecurity positions open and unfilled around the world, according to (ISC)2, a non-profit IT security organization.(1) At the same time, cyber threats and actions continue to increase at alarming rates. To offset personnel shortages, while ensuring their IT infrastructure is safe, businesses are turning to managed service providers, such as OneNeck IT Solutions.
Through adoption of the Critical Security Controls outlined by the Center for Internet Security (CIS), OneNeck helps mitigate the increasing threats and actions. In particular, OneNeck leverages Basic CIS Control 6: Maintenance, Monitoring and Analysis of Audit Logs. Coupled with its partnership with Alert Logic, OneNeck provides an enterprise-class security solution layered with Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) as a Service.
“Businesses are simply understaffed and lack the needed IT security expertise to thwart attacks by cyber-criminals,” said Katie McCullough, Chief Information Security Officer at OneNeck. “We can offset these challenges, and take on responsibility for reviewing, investigating and managing any incidents that occur, while our clients continue to focus on their mission-critical work. We are excited to partner with Alert Logic to help our clients solve today’s complex security challenges.”
With Alert Logic, OneNeck provides a managed, cloud-based suite of security and compliance solutions for all IT infrastructures (e.g., on-premises data center, cloud and hybrid), making it easier for clients to achieve their security goals—without being a security expert.
Alert Logic’s award-winning threat management platform provides continual inspection and evaluation of events, systems and workloads, identifying vulnerabilities, risks and deviations from the norm. When significant threats are detected, Alert Logic analysts notify OneNeck’s experienced security team within minutes to work through the process of threat remediation.
“Organizations need intelligent threat management to mitigate the risk of breaches and ensure their business-critical applications and customer data are secure across all their environments,” said Christopher Rajiah, Senior Vice President, Global Alliances and Partnerships, Alert Logic. “Security tools alone generate an overwhelming number of false positive alerts that often drown out real risks. Alert Logic combines our security platform, threat intelligence and experts to quickly identify the true threats and enrich OneNeck’s ability to perform remediation for their clients.”
