"We are pleased that Gartner has included us in this category of market leaders along with Cisco, Raytheon and FireEye," says Stanley Li, Chief Executive Officer of Netswitch. "And the integration of BlackStratus's CYBERShark platform and TaaSera's NetTrust Analytics provides Securli® with the same world-class threat detection and remediation capability as the Fortune 100, but with pricing affordable to the mid-market. Our unique 24×7 SaaS offering is now accessible to everyone seeking the best cyber-threat defense available anywhere."
Gartner points out that MDR providers are ideal for midsize customers that lack a formal security team and dedicated security monitoring function.
"We are thrilled to be partnering with Netswitch," says Mike Maxwell, Chief Security Officer of BlackStratus. "The combination of CYBERShark, our Security as a Service offering, and the Securli® MDR platform is a one of a kind offering bringing the middle market access to the best end to end cyber-threat defense on the market."
The combination of Securli® and TaaSera's NetTrust Analytics enables users to drill-down to determine a number of key metrics, including: systems at highest risk from active breach attempts, the source of the threats, specific details about vulnerabilities and risks detected, and attackers by country.
"Effective, proactive breach defense takes a layered approach. There are certain complementary solutions that give security teams a leg-up in defending against cyber-attacks," said Pam Quilici, EVP of Crouse & Associates, a San Francisco-based wholesale property, casualty, financial services, and transportation insurance company. "Layering TaaSera's NetTrust on top of our Securli® platform gives us critical visibility into network behaviors that other solutions can't see. We are able to isolate and remediate systems at risk of breach before any major damage is done."
