2020 has been a very different and difficult year for businesses across the globe, especially in terms of cyber security. Since January, we have seen cyber-attacks rise in every form including ransomware, phishing attacks, malicious office attacks and even social media attacks. In fact, the 2020 SonicWALL Cyber Threat Report showed that Ransomware attacks were up 20% and Internet of Things (IOT) Attacks were up 50% in the first half of 2020 globally.
The increase in cyber threats puts all business at risk and therefore, we needed to address these threats and provide a better solution that increases protection, improve threat detection capabilities, and offers an effective response in the event of an attack.
As a result, Silverbug are thrilled to announce that we are now offering Security Operations Centre-as-a-Service (SOCaaS), or how Silverbug likes to refer to it, Silverbug Guardian. This advanced security service will provide customers with complete visibility into the entire network using managed detection and response (MDR), 24/7 monitoring, log and data collection and more, to stop a potential or active cyber-threats.
Initially, Security Operations Centre (SOC) was only available to large enterprises that could afford this type of advanced security. It is only recently that this has become available to all businesses, regardless of size.
We are incredibly proud to be able to offer this as a service to our customers at a time when cyber-attacks are an ever-increasing threat to businesses and corporations across the globe.
This is due to an increase in technological opportunities and the skills of a cyber-criminal improving. That is why it’s important for businesses to be two steps ahead of cyber criminals, by reaching the desired level of protection to fight against the ever-advancing nature of cyber-threats.
This is a great benefit to both Silverbug and our customers, as we can deliver this newly accessible service to ensure any business can remain protected against cyber threats – no matter the size.
By adopting Silverbug Guardian, businesses will be able to detect, analyse, investigate and remediate cyber-threats, significantly reducing security risks leaving them to focus on what really matters – growth. Silverbug Guardian will be working in the background, preventing cyber-threat from entering the network using the following methods:
- 24/7 Managed Detection and Response
- 24/7 Proactive Monitoring
- Compliance Management
- Log Management
- Intrusion Detection System (IDS)
- Detect vulnerabilities using Security Incident & Event Monitoring (SIEM) technology
All these services enable businesses to be, as we like to call it, secure by design. The reason being, Silverbug Guardian works perfectly with other traditional methods of security. It can collaborate with Microsoft services, anti-virus software, endpoint protection, cloud services etc.
We are certainly on our way to the future of security.
