The partnership delivers the powerful combination of SIEM and SOC to organizations that lack optimal security staff and technology.
Secure Cyber Operations is PeriCertum’s next-generation, advanced and proactive Security Operations Center (SOC) as a Service. Most organizations continue to struggle to equip themselves with the necessary security staff, process discipline, and technology to effectively defend against cyber attacks and confidently meet IT compliance regulation demand. PeriCertum’s Secure Cyber Operations is a fundamental component of the firm’s holistic approach to cybersecurity based on the concept that you will never be able to stop all cyber-attacks and you have limited funding.
PeriCertum chief operating officer, Bob Breitman says “PeriCertum helps determine where our clients are most vulnerable, which of these vulnerabilities are most likely to be exploited, and how to optimize their limited budget to have the most impact on reducing cyber risk.”
EventTracker brings to PeriCertum an industry-leading SIEM platform coupled with an ISO-certified 24/7 SOC to round out a complete SOC-as-a-Service, or co-managed SIEM, solution. Together with PeriCertum’s cybersecurity services, clients receive all level of expertise from Tier 1-4 including monitoring, investigation, mitigation, hunting, forensics, and counterintelligence.
Co-managed SIEM has been on the rise recently and is expected to grow five-fold by 2020. This is primarily due to combination of the speed in which cybersecurity technology evolves and the drastic skill shortage in cybersecurity. With approximately 350,000 open cybersecurity jobs in the US, and a predicted global shortfall of 3.5 million cybersecurity jobs by 2021 — according to Cybersecurity Ventures — organizations clearly struggle to recruit, train, and retain security staff. Co-managed SIEM enables organizations to avoid this pitfall and reach security and compliance goals.
“EventTracker is excited about this partnership because we share PeriCertum’s holistic mentality”, says Aaron Branson, vice president of Marketing for EventTracker. “EventTracker is unique in the sense that the cybersecurity market is flooded with point products, but we realize technology alone is not enough. Organizations lack the staff to utilize them well. Organizations lack the staff to utilize them well. That’s why we pair our unified SIEM platform with a full SOC and rigorous process discipline – to make cybersecurity and compliance practical for any size organization.”
The Secure Cyber Operations solution is a foundational component of PeriCertum’s complete suite of cybersecurity services which also includes risk identification and quantification, prioritization and budget, prediction and prevention, risk mitigation, deep assessment and third-party risk scoring.
EventTracker, a Netsurion company, empowers organizations to successfully predict, prevent, detect, and respond to cybersecurity threats. The EventTracker Security Center platform unifies SIEM, machine learning, behavior analytics, and security orchestration, and has been recognized for 10 straight years by Gartner on the Magic Quadrant for SIEM.
