Joining the dots - Ideal announces Managed SIEM

21 March 2018

Ideal, the Brighton-based managed services and IT infrastructure provider, today announces the launch of its managed security information and event management (Managed SIEM) service.

Harnessing the power of omnipresent technology, coupled with expert cyber resources, we enable companies to better protect themselves from the new era of cyber threats by having centralised visibility of security data and alerts. Our solution alleviates the pressure customers have on in-house IT resources from a constantly evolving threat landscape.  

SIEM is an intelligent set of technologies that combine security information management (SIM) and security event management (SEM). By providing real-time analysis of security alerts generated by applications and network hardware, the technology allows skilled cyber security experts to identify, diagnose and respond immediately, thereby preventing and mitigating the impact of security breaches. Ideal’s service provides a turnkey solution combining the required technology and expertise as a fully managed service, 24/7/365.

Mike Henson, Ideal MD, commented: “Over 46% of companies in the UK suffered a breach last year and many could not quickly and effectively respond. In some cases, it took months to even detect the breach, and as the length of time increases between breach and remediation there’s an increased risk of data loss and consequent reputational risk.”

Gary Johnson, Operations Director, added: “Many businesses find it impossible to quickly and easily form and evidence a clear picture of security threats across the entire estate. Even if they can find the required cyber expertise, they are looking at high cost and effort to sift through the exponentially growing volume of logs generated by security nodes across their networks. We offer a compelling alternative - leverage the required security technology and cyber expertise via a managed service model at a fixed monthly cost.”

Ideal’s Managed SIEM provides the 360° visibility customers need of their complex infrastructure, as well as proactive, actionable guidance and recommendations. From Day 1, Ideal helps customers separate ‘noise’ from legitimate threats and reduces the impact of security incidents and data breaches.

Mike Henson concluded: “The launch of our Managed SIEM Service is a key milestone in our growth – we have invested significantly in our security platforms, including AlienVault’s Unified Security Management (USM), as well as our people and their expertise. We believe we offer the best possible solution for companies wanting to take a proactive approach to enhancing and maintaining their security posture as well as giving them the ability to easily and quickly evidence compliance. We are confident that we are meeting a growing market need and early indications from customers and prospects bears this out.”
