Speak With A Security Expert Now

Remember when adequate security for your business was defined as storing information in a locked file cabinet or securing your perimeter, then granting access to properly authenticated users within that perimeter? In today’s complex digital world of regulatory compliance requirements, due diligence questionnaires, mobile workforce and advanced cyberattacks, those traditional security approaches are no longer sufficient. A locked file cabinet has become a cloud-hosted file server, users work from home with personal devices accessing corporate data, and the perimeter is no more.

Modern organizations are expected to provide users access to corporate data at anytime, from anywhere. While this level of access is convenient and allows users a great deal of flexibility, there is inherent risk introduced that requires security teams to take more of a “follow the data” approach and modify the organization’s security strategy accordingly. Traditional approaches to securing the modern enterprise are often ineffective as they do not adequately address the threats associated with common use cases such as borderless networks and monitoring access to cloud resources.

For many years IT and security teams have leveraged security information and event management (SIEM) solutions to solve the need for a single pane of glass, log centralization and retention, streamlined compliance reporting, threat detection and other. While many of the industry’s leading legacy SIEM providers solve these issues, businesses are finding it challenging to locate and retain the resources necessary to effectively manage a SIEM solution. For the solution to be effective, it must be continuously monitored and tuned, and alerts must be triaged and responded to as quickly as possible. In addition to the overhead required, many internal teams suffer from alert fatigue (caused by too many false positives), which can lead to over tuning security tools or ignoring potentially critical alerts. This general lack of resources and expertise typically leads to a SIEM being underutilized and ineffective, making the DIY approach to managing a SIEM or even a lightweight co-managed SIEM solution less attractive.

By partnering with an experienced security partner capable of ingesting, correlating, and taking action in response to network, endpoint, and log source signals, companies can reduce the complexity of security and allow internal teams to focus on higher value initiatives. eSentire’s team of experts leverage Sumo Logic’s next-gen, cloud-based SIEM platform to ingest customer signals, apply advanced threat detection techniques, and protect businesses from constantly evolving cyberattacks. This fully co-managed approach helps reduce false positives and eliminate alert fatigue for internal network and security teams.

As organizations embrace digital transformation, they look to Managed Detection and Response (MDR) to protect the wide distribution of critical information across the cloud, network, endpoints and devices. Combining the power of Sumo Logic with the unparalleled expertise of eSentire’s SOC analysts enables organizations to not only follow the data, but also detect and respond to threats from attackers lurking in the digital shadows.
