Kivu officially announces the launch of its newest service offering, Managed Security Services (MSS).
For many organizations, retaining cyber security staff – whether internally or outsourced – is becoming ever more critical as costs resulting from a breach continue to rise. Market data point towards approximately 50% of all ransomware victims suffering repeat attacks, often within a few weeks or months of the first incident. Having just about managed to navigate and survive the first attack, many organizations are brought to their knees by the subsequent breach.
Partnering with a team that gives you round-the-clock monitoring and response is often the more economical and certainly more sustainable choice for businesses.
With Kivu’s MSS product organizations leverage a trusted team of experts to help prevent, detect, respond to and hunt for threats in their environment. Round-the-clock SOC operations in North America and Europe offer 24x7x365 network monitoring and response services, while the phishing protection service averts attempts at email compromise and can be used to train staff awareness.
Crucially, MSS also enables organizations to obtain visibility into attackers’ behavior over time, helping them build resilience in the long-term. Flexible service packaging can be customized to meet every business’s individual needs, adapting to changes in network size, security requirements and risk posture.
Brett Powers, VP of Managed Security Services, says, “Prevention is always better than cure, and that’s where my team comes in. Our goal is to provide best-in-class automation software coupled with experienced, unbiased advice so that organizations can more effectively prevent and mitigate cyber incidents.”
Commenting on the continued rise in cyber incidents and business interruption costs, Powers notes, “Threat actors see small and medium businesses as prime targets, and in turn we’ve seen a big increase in interest coming from those organizations this year. Partnering with a team that gives you round-the-clock monitoring and response is often the more economical and certainly more sustainable choice for businesses, especially organizations which may not have a dedicated security team.”
