Greenville, SC (April 2019) Immedion LLC, a premiere provider of cloud, data center, and managed IT services, today announced the launch of Managed SIEM (Security Information and Event Management), its newest managed security service.
As the frequency and sophistication of cyber-attacks continues to evolve, businesses – especially those in frequently targeted industries like healthcare and finance – need to protect their network, devices and data from emerging threats such as ransomware. Not only are attacks becoming more sophisticated, they are getting harder to detect. In fact, Ponemon’s 2018 Cost of a Data Breach Study found that it takes an average of 197 days to detect a data breach – that’s more than six months of an attacker accessing and using a company’s data before the company recognizes the need to start remediation.
To close this gap, Immedion’s Managed SIEM service blends SIEM technology with a 24/7 Security Operations Center (SOC) team. With continuous threat monitoring, quick identification of security events and access to security expertise, malicious activity is detected sooner, reducing the time between threat detection and response. To ease the burden for companies seeking PCI, HIPAA or NIST compliance, Managed SIEM includes audit-ready reporting, daily log monitoring and daily event review.
While companies can hire a private SOC or staff their own security department, these options are often cost prohibitive. “Security is a top priority for our customers, but the truly exorbitant cost of staffing your own SOC is problematic for many businesses,” said Brad Alexander, Immedion's Vice President and Chief Technology Officer. “Immedion’s Managed SIEM is a robust yet affordable solution that helps our customers improve their cybersecurity posture.”
Managed SIEM is a critical element of Immedion’s suite of security services. "Our Managed SIEM service combines with our SOC 2 Type II-compliant data centers, next gen firewall, antivirus offerings and managed services to create a comprehensive security solution that helps keep our customers' data safe, compliant and always on,” said Immedion’s President and COO Rob Moser.
