EventTracker and Continuum Team Up to Empower MSPs

June 18, 2018

The partnership effectively delivers the powerful combination of SIEM and SOC to MSPs and their end-customers.

COLUMBIA, Md. – June 18 -- EventTracker, a Netsurion company and leader in security information and event management (SIEM), today announced a strategic partnership with IT management platform company, Continuum, to provide Managed IT Service Providers a complete set of managed security services to meet the advanced threat protection and compliance needs of their end-clients in the small-to-medium business sector.
According to the 2017 Verizon Data Breach Investigation Report, 61% of breaches targeted SMBs, up from the previous year’s 53%.1 These cyber attacks cost small businesses anywhere between $84,000 and $148,000.2 And 60% of small businesses go out of business within six months of such an attack.3

It has become apparent that in addition to traditional perimeter-focused defenses such as firewalls and signature-based endpoint protection like anti-virus, advanced threat detection and response is needed to protect against modern cyber threats.

Delivered as Continuum Detect & Respond – Network & Compliance, Continuum is making it practical and profitable for MSPs to deliver advanced threat protection and compliance management. The new offering is a cost-effective, hosted implementation of the EventTracker SIEM with our own 24/7 Security Operations Center (SOC) staffed by dedicated expert security analysts, tailored specifically to the business needs of SMBs and the multi-tenant management needs of MSPs.

EventTracker is unique in the industry as a vendor that offers both best-in-class SIEM technology for self-service and a 24/7 ISO-certified security operations center (SOC) to provide a custom-fit managed service. This is a critical differentiator because the skill shortage of experienced analysts is the leading cause of SIEM products becoming unused shelfware.

“We’re very excited about our partnership with Continuum and the momentous impact this has on the cybersecurity industry. We’ve long understood that our SIEM technology, SOC service and process is a must-have to effectively protect SMBs from today’s threats”, says Guy Cunningham, EventTracker vice president of Alliances. “This partnership brings our managed security service, SIEMphonic, backed by the EventTracker SIEM platform, to the capable hands of managed service providers world-wide.”

The EventTracker platform, recognized 10-consecutive years on the Gartner Magic Quadrant for SIEM, enables threat hunting and simplifies compliance auditing. In addition to more powerful endpoint threat detection, it improves productivity instantly with a modern interface that is intuitive and customizable; enhances common workflows with more efficient storage and search technology; and expands its capability to scale to the very large and diverse data sets needed for today’s enterprise IT infrastructures.
