In 3 bullets, summarize why this company deserves recognition:
- Proficio's customers come first. Proficio is extremely dedicated to customers – leading to many loyal, long-term customers and referrals – and is demonstrated first-hand by Proficio’s SOC Analysts; they spend more time than industry competitors investigating suspicious activity and hunting for attacks. This customer dedication and quality of service has allowed Proficio to gain many lifelong customers, who see them as an extension of their in-house team, and continuously displace larger competitors.
- Proficio is the only MSSP to develop a comprehensive approach to automating the response to critical attacks with its Active Defense service. Their unique Active Defense service can programmatically block IP addresses or collect and retain an image or snapshot of a server that’s been attacked. This provides Proficio customers another layer of added protection and confidence in their security 24x7.
- Proficio has built a team of security experts with a wide range of knowledge and expertise. Proficio is able to collect security events from the widest range of log sources, more effectively parse log data and customize rules that identify suspicious behaviors. Proficio's team uses the most advanced SIEM analytics and threat detection tools to filter and correlate events in context to accurately identify priority events or anomalies that may indicate a step in the kill chain.
In less than 300 words, summarize the achievements of the company in the nominated category
Proficio is an award-winning provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions, that is changing the way organizations defend against advanced threats. Proficio was started by industry veterans to help mid- to large-sized organizations that did not have the resources to properly monitor and secure their networks from cyberattacks and prevent security breaches. These enterprises lack the internal resources to administer powerful analytics platforms or staff a security operation center (SOC) to monitor and prevent cyberattacks.
Proficio’s managed security services significantly reduce the risk of a data breach from targeted attackers, insiders, and cybercriminals through 24×7 security monitoring, advanced threat detection and breach prevention services. Proficio ProSOC’s services can be turned on quickly and scale with the growth of our customers. Customers do not need to buy any hardware or software and can focus their security team’s time on other priorities.
One of the biggest challenges faced by the industry is to rapidly and accurately detect critical events; Proficio identifies critical threats in minutes and provides guided remediation services to help customers effectively respond. Typical Proficio customers generate tens of millions of events a day – Proficio monitors, analyzes and prioritizes these events, investigating all suspicious activity and notifying customers of critical events that require action. Proficio has developed industry-specific security use cases, content, and compliance reporting to address each customer’s specific needs.
The challenge for management and IT leadership is to mount an effective defense within budget. Proficio’s ProSOC services enables organizations to get the most advanced analytics, business context modeling, powerful threat intelligence and 24×7 expert monitoring and investigations capabilities at a fraction of the cost and complexity of an in-house security operation. Customers view Proficio as an extension of their team and say they can sleep at night knowing we are always monitoring their network and applications.
