Managed Security Services (MSS)
Assuria Managed Security Services are built upon Assuria’s globally used and respected SIEM, FIM and Vulnerability Assessment software technologies and these proven services are already deployed in numerous UK Government departments, defence organisations and other commercial companies to build powerful cyber defences and to manage cyber threats, delivered as a managed service.
Key Assuria partners, including MDR Managed Services Ltd, MDS Technologies, BAE Systems Applied Intelligence, Securious, SecureArm and SIS Industrial Cyber Security have established MSS operations delivering GPG-13 based Protective Monitoring services to their customers and Assuria can now also offer a range of Protective Monitoring services in London and the South East via the Assuria SOC operation located in Reading. These services are also available to public sector organisations via G Cloud.
These services provide essential security intelligence, early warning alerts and advice on remediating security issues and where needed, deep forensic investigations services for those organisations which don’t have the skills, resources or budgets, or the desire to manage their own cyber security defences.
MSS services include:
- Protective Monitoring (including GPG-13 Detect and Deter)
- Vulnerability Assessment, System Hardening and Monitoring
- SIEM Management
Many organisations, in trying to build their own in-house cyber security operations, have struggled to employ or retain any skilled IT security specialists, even if they have the budgets. Without these essential skilled practitioners, using cyber security technologies to reduce business risk can be extremely difficult. This can have a huge impact on compliance with existing security standards ane especially the upcoming GDPR regulations.
This increasing shortage of skilled Cyber Security practitioners is restricting the value that many organisations can gain from the use of advanced cyber security threat solutions as offered by Assuria.
To meet this need, Assuria offers a range of managed security services and SaaS services so that any organisation can be protected from Cyber Security threats, without having to acquire solutions or hire expensive and rare security talent. These managed security services are available for on-premise data centres, hosted systems and cloud based environments (including MS Azure, AWS and Oracle Cloud Infrastructure).
Assuria offers a range of managed cyber security services which utilise the company’s world class cyber security software solutions as used by major end user organisations and Security Operations Centre (SOC) operators from the US through to Japan, but delivered as fully managed services, with no need to licence software or to employ skilled practitioners.
In most cases there are limited if any up front costs involved in engaging Assuria or one of its partners to deliver fully managed cyber security services, just a manageable monthly fee.
SaaS services from Assuria are primarily focussed on organisations which still prefer to licence their software out of Capex, or are already licensed users of Assuria solutions, but which would prefer a third party to manage, administer and operate these solutions.
