ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - August 15, 2016) - #ManagedSecurity - ControlScan, the managed security service provider (MSSP) IT leaders and their organizations rely upon for unified security and compliance, announced today that it now offers a managed SIEM service to support IT teams utilizing the LogRhythm Security Intelligence Platform. The new ControlScan Managed SIEM service maximizes the value of an organization's LogRhythm SIEM investment by delivering a layer of deep-seated expertise and active, ongoing administration and support.
Security Information and Event Management, or SIEM, is a critical tool that helps organizations address the barrage of cybersecurity threats hitting their IT environment on a daily basis. A properly-managed LogRhythm SIEM performs this process by collecting security and event log data in real time, then correlating it for meaningful alerts and analysis. However, many in-house IT teams don't have the resources or niche expertise to ensure that the SIEM is performing optimally and that legitimate security threats are quickly detected, validated and addressed.
"Like any security technology, a SIEM solution is only as effective as your IT organization's ability to stay on top of its configurations and outputs," said Alex Knight, Director of Security Product Strategy, ControlScan. "With the ControlScan Managed SIEM service, our Security Operations team augments your internal staff, maintaining and optimizing configuration of your on-premise SIEM and handling day-to-day management to ensure you meet your business's security and compliance objectives."
The ControlScan Managed SIEM service is ideal for organizations experiencing the following challenges in managing their existing LogRhythm SIEM:
- The internal IT team is time and/or resource constrained, preventing its ability to effectively manage its security infrastructure.
- The organization needs guidance in implementing and maintaining its technologies and processes in a compliant manner.
- The organization wants to minimize employee overhead by partnering with a managed services provider.
- The existing implementation is incomplete or flawed due to lack of niche security and/or LogRhythm expertise.
- A managed security resource is currently in place, but performance is not consistent with the organization's objectives.
"As a financial services firm, we place a high priority on protecting the sensitive data we work with," said Michael Roskam, General Manager, Accounts Receivable, Inc. "ControlScan gives us the ability to cover all our security bases, without having to sacrifice time spent on our core business activities. If a security event triggers an alert, our staff is immediately notified by ControlScan for follow up."
