How we are different

* Security Maintenance and Updates - It is essential to keep all of the security technologies deployed within customer environments running at full capacity. However it becomes exceptionally difficult to ensure every piece of the security infrastructure functions properly and remains up to date with the latest patches when there are so many other important things to do. Fortis Managed Security provides regular maintenance and updates to security solutions from a wide variety of industry-leading vendors, so customers can worry less and focus more on efficiency, growth, and innovation.

* Proactive Monitoring and Threat Hunting - Security technologies must be continuously monitored to ensure they are functioning properly and providing the maximum amount of protection possible. If a critical error occurs or a piece of infrastructure suddenly stops working, the customer needs to know immediately so they can address the issue. Fortis Managed Security provides 24x7x365 proactive monitoring of the customer’s environment, alerting them to any changes in status or availability as well as keeping an eye out for potential performance issues or threats that could harm operational integrity. This advanced level of visibility is overseen by the certified experts from Fortis’ Network Operations Center (NOC) and Security Operations Center (SOC), who are trained to identify risks and uncover threats.

* Extended Detection and Response - Fortis ActiveDefense Extended Detection and Response (XDR) leverages a single platform that can ingest endpoint agent data, network level information, and device logs. This data is correlated through custom development work from the Fortis DevOps team, and detections can occur from one or many sources of telemetry. A benefit of XDR is that it allows analysts to view correlated detections in a single pane of glass and respond appropriately. This enables faster response, recommendations, and guidance to help customers arrive at a solution sooner.
