Netsurion today announced that its Brand Guard managed network security service and subsidiary EventTracker’s security information and event management (SIEM) platform have been named Best Managed Security Service and Best SIEM, respectively, in the 2017 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. As a combined firm, the companies are now better positioned than ever to protect their customers against increasingly sophisticated network breaches.

The independent awards program honors companies and individuals that demonstrate excellence, innovation, and leadership in information security. Each year, it is produced in cooperation with the Information Security Community on LinkedIn, tapping into the experience of 350,000+ cybersecurity professionals to recognize the world’s best cybersecurity products, individuals, and organizations.

Hackers are successfully infiltrating multi-location brands, franchisees, and other small- to mid-size businesses with alarming frequency. The effects on compromised companies’ financials and reputations can be devastating and unrecoverable—hurting profit and customer trust.

Multi-location businesses specifically face the challenge of securing many geographically diverse locations in an environment where IT resources and consistency in network topology are often impossible. As such, a brand’s security is only as strong as its weakest link.

Netsurion’s Brand Guard is a highly scalable network security service that is designed to help mitigate these challenges through centralized firewall management, compliance management, and automation, as well as advanced threat protection technology. A key differentiator of the Brand Guard solution is Netsurion’s security adoption program, Compliance Accelerator, which helps dramatically increase the number of protected edge locations, as well as the level of security employed, at a fraction of the costs associated with a self-managed solution.

Netsurion’s SIEM-at-the-Edge service, made possible through the Oct. 2016 EventTracker merger, can be added to further harden edge location security through the implementation of EventTracker’s leading SIEM technology directly on workstations and the combination of security event monitoring capabilities with managed detection and response (MDR).

EventTracker’s award-winning SIEM technology is comprehensive and complete with modules for every facet of security monitoring for small- to mid-size companies. In addition to basic log management and advanced SIEM features, EventTracker includes support for behavior anomaly detection, threat intelligence integration, correlation, alerting, and flexible reporting. Modules for intrusion detection systems (IDS), vulnerability scanning, network and flow monitoring, and a HoneyNet deception framework are also available.

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

“It is an honor for Netsurion and EventTracker to be recognized by such a prestigious group of information security professionals. The fact that they have been named the best in their segments reinforces the strength of the two companies working together,” said Kevin Watson, Netsurion CEO and EventTracker board member. “In the last year, we have seen more successful network intrusions that could have been prevented by the type of security SIEM brings. Unfortunately, many small- to mid-size and multi-location businesses cannot afford and do not have the knowledge to manage such complex systems. Providing a managed network security service, coupled with a managed SIEM product, will enable us to best protect our clients from current and emerging threats.”

“Congratulations to Netsurion for winning the Managed Security Services category in the 2017 Cybersecurity Excellence Awards. And congratulations to EventTracker for winning the Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) category in the same awards program,” said Holger Schulze, founder of the Information Security Community on LinkedIn, which organizes the awards program. “With over 450 entries, the 2017 awards are highly competitive, and all winners and finalists reflect the very best in leadership, excellence and innovation in today’s cybersecurity industry.”
