Netsurion Launches Managed SIEM Capabilities

January 13, 2017

Netsurion has launched two security information and event management (SIEM)-based advanced threat detection solutions, marking significant breakthroughs in cybersecurity for highly-distributed companies’ edge locations, including franchisees and branch offices. The first is a managed SIEM solution called SIEM-at-the-Edge, designed specifically to protect multi-location businesses through the implementation of leading SIEM technology directly on workstations, combining security event monitoring capabilities with managed detection and response (MDR). The second offering, Breach Detection Service, is an automated breach alerting platform designed specifically for businesses looking for advanced threat detection capabilities that augment anti-virus, firewall, and other traditional security measures.

Powered by the award-winning EventTracker security management platform, these services give businesses an affordable level of protection from cyberthreats that was previously only available inside the perimeter of large enterprises.

Without the proper security technology and services, it takes an average of 265 days to discover a data breach. Reputational damage and revenue loss from a breach headline not only impact individual edge locations, but the corporate brand as well. Recent major breaches at Fortune 500 companies and household names across the retail, restaurant, and hotel sectors demonstrate that anti-virus, anti-malware, and firewalls alone are not enough to secure businesses from the ever-evolving threat landscape. Clearly, more needs to be done to secure each and every location under a brand umbrella.

Filling this void, SIEM-at-the-Edge provides advanced cybersecurity technology through an industry-leading SIEM and MDR solution uniquely tailored to be effective and affordable for small and medium-sized multi-location businesses.

Underpinning SIEM-at-the-Edge, the EventTracker security management platform provides easily deployed sensors that protect critical endpoints, like point-of-sale (POS) systems. Real-time alerts and recommendations about critical security events are automatically sent to the customer, and in certain situations, the sensor can perform automated response actions, neutralizing the threat before damage to a network can occur.

“SIEM-at-the-Edge perfectly complements Netsurion’s existing offerings of network security, resilience, and PCI compliance, resulting in a comprehensive managed security solution scalable for businesses of any size,” said Kevin Watson, CEO of Netsurion. “Cyberattacks are succeeding at alarming rates, and the impact of data breaches on multi-location brands, individual franchisees, and other small businesses can be catastrophic and unrecoverable. Adding these advanced SIEM services to our portfolio enables us to give our customers even stronger protection without the costs and complexity of full-time, dedicated resources. Our recent merger with EventTracker made this possible, and we are thrilled to introduce this capability to businesses that previously were unable to afford and manage such sophisticated security measures.”

As a cost effective way to know when events that are highly indicative of a possible breach occur in a network environment, Netsurion is offering its Breach Detection Service platform. This fully-automated system alerts businesses to potential breach threats in real time, including system changes, such as the installation of unknown or unsigned applications, unexpected user behavior, and connection with poor reputation IP addresses. This low-cost system is an added layer on top of firewall and anti-virus solutions, alerting businesses to possible zero-day viruses and ransomware.

“Balancing the need for added security without further over-complicating the IT environment is a challenge for all businesses, especially those whose IT resources are already stretched thin. Breach Detection Service directly addresses that problem through a very simple-to-install application that adds the next layer of protection beyond anti-virus and firewalls,” said Watson. “We designed the service to alert on those specific breach-related events that require immediate action, such as the installation of a potential ransomware application, and to provide actionable intelligence to our users.”
