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.
Security products such as Next-Generation Firewalls, web application firewalls and SIEMS must be properly provisioned, updated and patches to protect against internal and external threats. Policies, signatures and rules need to be updated and maintained to ensure accessibility and to comply with regulations and security best practices.
Proficio’s managed security services provide organizations with full, hybrid or custom management solutions for traditional and virtual security devices. Our solutions include 24×7 monitoring and alerting, device provisioning and change management, performance and health monitoring, backup and recovery, patch management, on-call support from security experts, and emergency incident responses.
Many organizations can’t justify hiring an expert in a specific technology capable of tuning an advanced security device. Proficio’s engineers have specialized training in each technology that we support and act as an extension of a client’s internal team to troubleshoot and maintain devices under management.
