In 3 bullets, summarize why this product or service is different from the competition and deserves recognition:
Proficio doesn’t deliver cookie-cutter solutions. The company offers unique solutions that help enterprises navigate the complex decision to build, buy or blend with flexible solutions designed to fit customers’ individual needs and infrastructures. Proficio’s co-managed hybrid SOC model allows companies to build on their existing investment in people and technology by selecting the services they need most—including 24/7 monitoring through geographically dispersed centers—while saving costs. Fully managed solutions leverage talent and technology that’s a cut above, across the spectrum, from SIEM content development to security engineering, threat research and tiers of analysts.
Advanced services lie at the heart of Proficio’s solutions. In addition to highly accurate alerts that provide full visibility into an organization’s security posture, Proficio is the only MSSP to offer fully automated response to critical attacks. Proficio’s robust, 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 critical added layer of protection as well as next-generation firewalls and endpoint security products bring greater efficacy as well as peace of mind.
Proficio is directly challenging traditional industry leaders with security experts who are armed with the knowledge and the tools to collect security events from the widest range of sources, more effectively parse log data and customize rules that identify suspicious behaviors. Using the most advanced SIEM analytics and threat detection tools, they filter and correlate events in context to accurately identify priority events or anomalies that may indicate a step in the kill chain. Proficio SOC analysts also spend more time than competitors investigating suspicious activity and hunting for attacks. This service quality has garnered loyal customers who see Proficio experts as extensions of their in-house team, which frees up internal resources to focus on other priorities.
Proficio is a fast-growing global provider of cloud-based cybersecurity and compliance solutions that solves challenges with innovative solutions, best-of-breed experts and the industry’s most advanced technology. Leading financial services, healthcare, energy, manufacturing and retail organizations enjoy knowing their networks and applications are monitored 24/7 by Proficio’s expert security analysts.
One of the biggest challenges faced by mid- to large-sized organizations is how to rapidly and accurately detect critical events. Proficio provides Incident Response and automated detection and response services, enriched by business context modeling for more relevant and accurate alerts. Proficio helps enterprises who lack the internal resources to administer powerful analytics platforms or properly staff a security operation center (SOC) to successfully monitor and prevent cyberattacks.
Proficio’s managed security services significantly reduce a client’s risk of data breaches from targeted attackers, insiders and cybercriminals through 24/7 security monitoring, sophisticated threat detection and breach prevention services. Proficio’s SOC as a service can be turned on quickly and scaled as needed – no need to purchase any hardware or software.
Proficio identifies critical threats in minutes and provides guided remediation services to help customers effectively respond. Typically, tens of millions of events are generated each day, which must be monitored, analyzed and prioritized. Proficio investigates all suspicious activity and notifies customers of critical events that require action. Quick, efficient response is essential to containing a potential breach.
Budget constraints can limit the ability of management and IT leadership to mount an effective defense. Proficio’s services enable 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.
