Netsurion Brings Advanced Threat Protection to Multi-location Retail Businesses

January 05, 2017 07:30 ET | Source: Netsurion FT. LAUDERDALE, Fla., Jan. 05, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Netsurion, a leading provider of managed data and network security services for multi-location businesses, today announced the launches of two security information and event management (SIEM)-based advanced threat detection solutions, marking significant breakthroughs in cybersecurity for highly-distributed companies’ edge locations, including franchisees and branch offices.  The first is a managed SIEM solution called SIEM-at-the-Edge, designed specifically to protect multi-location businesses through the implementation of leading SIEM technology directly on workstations, combining security event monitoring capabilities with managed detection and response (MDR).  The second offering, Breach Detection Service, is an automated breach alerting platform designed specifically for businesses looking for advanced threat detection capabilities that augment anti-virus, firewall, and other traditional security measures.

Powered by the award-winning EventTracker security management platform, these services give businesses an affordable level of protection from cyberthreats that was previously only available inside the perimeter of large enterprises—for as low as $20 per month per location for SIEM-at-the-Edge and $10 per month per location for Breach Detection Service. Without the proper security technology and services, it takes an average of 265 days to discover a data breach.

Reputational damage and revenue loss from a breach headline not only impact individual edge locations, but the corporate brand as well. Recent major breaches at Fortune 500 companies and household names across the retail, restaurant, and hotel sectors demonstrate that anti-virus, anti-malware, and firewalls alone are not enough to secure businesses from the ever-evolving threat landscape. Clearly, more needs to be done to secure each and every location under a brand umbrella. Filling this void, SIEM-at-the-Edge provides advanced cybersecurity technology through an industry-leading SIEM and MDR solution uniquely tailored to be effective and affordable for small and medium-sized multi-location businesses.

Underpinning SIEM-at-the-Edge, the EventTracker security management platform provides easily deployed sensors that protect critical endpoints, like point-of-sale (POS) systems.  Real-time alerts and recommendations about critical security events are automatically sent to the customer, and in certain situations, the sensor can perform automated response actions, neutralizing the threat before damage to a network can occur. “SIEM-at-the-Edge perfectly complements Netsurion’s existing offerings of network security, resilience, and PCI compliance, resulting in a comprehensive managed security solution scalable for businesses of any size,” said Kevin Watson, CEO of Netsurion. “Cyberattacks are succeeding at alarming rates, and the impact of data breaches on multi-location brands, individual franchisees, and other small businesses can be catastrophic and unrecoverable. Adding these advanced SIEM services to our portfolio enables us to give our customers even stronger protection without the costs and complexity of full-time, dedicated resources…
