TBConsulting Announces New Partnership for Real-Time Network Security

SCOTTSDALE, Ariz., April 6, 2017 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- TBConsulting recently announced a partnership with PacketSled, a network security company providing threat detection and network forensics for continuous network security in the cloud.

PacketSled brings situational awareness to networks to identify threats to the company. Other security measures take time to deploy, but their cloud-based offering can be deployed in a matter of minutes, greatly reducing security risk while bringing value instantly.

"We can now bring a tool to our clients to continuously monitor their network for advanced threats and policy violations that may have been missed otherwise," says Scott McKeon, Director of Professional Services at TBConsulting.

"Most businesses don't really know what's going on, and this new tool lets us turn a light on. We can tell instantly if a company's mortgage or healthcare information isn't being transferred or emailed on a secure line."

Typical IT departments don't have the staff available to manage the network and analyze the data. With this partnership, TBConsulting provides real-time data to their clients to determine threats quickly, validate issues, or identify false positives. What used to take hours or months using complex tools to analyze and detect vulnerabilities and threats can now be done in 30 minutes or less.

TBConsulting is offering the PacketSled tool with their network management services for clients to offer a comprehensive solution that monitors networks 24/7. Weekly and monthly reports are issued to keep track of each network's security.

PacketSled chose TBConsulting out of all managed service providers in Arizona because they found TBConsulting to be proactive in providing clients with new technology and increased value.

Jared Ballou, VP of Sales & Strategic Alliances, says, "Partnering with TBConsulting's risk-based approach to IT and security was a perfect fit for PacketSled. We are thrilled to evolve TBC's portfolio and continue to lower the risk exposure for their customers. With this partnership, TBConsulting can deliver a cost-effective threat assessment, continuous monitoring, and incident response program to that market in record time."
