In 3 bullets, summarize why this company is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
Advanced services are a key Proficio differentiator with accuracy and notifications business relevance that are second to none. Proficio has developed hundreds of use cases that filter out the noise and provide actionable notifications with both relevance and recommendations. Proficio is the only MSSP to offer fully automated response to critical attacks. The company’s industry-first Active Defense Service can programmatically block IP addresses or collect and retain an image or snapshot of a server that’s been attacked. This added layer of protection, as well as next-generation firewalls and endpoint security products, bring greater efficacy as well as peace of mind.
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 respond effectively. Typically, 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 client’s specific needs. Their analysts also spend more time than competitors investigating suspicious activity, which leads clients to view the company as an extension of their in-house team.
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’s SOC as a service offering 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. Services can also be turned on quickly and scaled as needed without added hardware or software.
In less than 300 words, summarize the achievements of the company in the nominated category
Proficio is a fast-growing provider of cloud-based security and compliance solutions. The company’s innovative approach to managed security service delivery, along with its best-of-breed experts and the industry’s most advanced technology, is changing the way companies defend against threats, achieve regulatory compliance and prevent security breaches. Fast company growth and other recent developments point to Proficio’s quality of services, customer-centric focus and pioneering cybersecurity services.
Leading financial services, healthcare, energy, manufacturing and retail organizations enjoy peace of mind knowing their networks and applications are monitored 24/7 by Proficio’s expert security analysts. A steadily increasing and loyal customer base has led to global growth, including the expansion of Proficio’s security operations centers (SOCs) in Singapore and Barcelona, Spain. The newly expanded SOC as a service provides greater capacity and enables better servicing of Asia Pacific and European customers that are responding positively to Proficio’s comprehensive cybersecurity solutions.
Proficio continually works to improve and augment its services and earlier this year announced an enhanced co-managed solution to help companies optimize their SIEM investment with Splunk Enterprise Security. The expanded services include new use cases, correlation rules and business intelligence, as well as administration, monitoring, alerting and response. Due to the increased number of threats and alerts, many users lack the resources to adequately maintain and keep pace with the latest threats and administer Splunk Enterprise Security to its full potential.
Proficio also recently made it easier for healthcare organizations to achieve HIPAA compliance. To help healthcare providers navigate the ever-evolving HIPAA landscape, Proficio’s HIPAA Compliance Insight Service provides well-defined processes, procedures and documentation to quickly visualize and address compliance posture, while easily implementing accountability across the board.
