One of the biggest challenges faced by mid- to large-sized organizations is how to rapidly and accurately detect critical events; Proficio was started by industry veterans to help these companies who do not have the resources to properly secure their networks and prevent security breaches. Many enterprises lack the internal resources to administer powerful analytics platforms or staff a security operation center (SOC) to monitor and prevent cyberattacks.
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, only notifying customers of critical events that require action. Quick, efficient response is essential to containing a potential breach.
The challenge for management and IT leadership is to mount an effective defense within budget specific to their organizations needs. 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. Proficio has developed industry-specific security use cases, content, and compliance reporting to address each customer’s specific needs.
