"Our partners turn to us for our ability to automate threat detection and response for any size company, stopping and eliminating threats before data theft, disruption or financial loss occurs."
Addressing security needs for all clients
Big Yak, Orion Instruments and Selectus Consulting now offer training, consulting, professional and managed services around Seceon's OTM platform, enabling customers to dramatically speed visualization, detection and elimination of cyber-threats through real-time, automated threat detection and response capabilities. Seceon OTM uses advanced data collection and analysis, machine learning, patent-pending predictive and behavioral analytics, enabling partners and/or their customers to detect and respond to all forms of viable threats in minutes, instead of hours or days, preventing risk, damage or loss of valuable information.
"Seceon's approach, leveraging big/fast data analytics with AI and machine learning to addresses cyber security with real-time threat mitigation, is gaining traction with enterprises and managed service providers," stated Jon Erickson, Managing Partner, Big Yak Technologies. "I am energized by the prospect of working with the Seceon team to address the increasing cyber security demands faced by all types of digital era companies, including financial services."

Supporting provider's profitable security services
InfoGuardian now offers enhanced managed services around Seceon's OTM platform, providing customers with a proverbial "SOC-in-a-Box™," automating human and time intensive analysis and decision-making to significantly speed the time to detection and remediation. Using advanced data collection and analysis, machine learning, patent-pending predictive and behavioral analytics, Seceon enables InfoGuardian to detect and respond to all forms of viable threats against its customers in minutes, instead of hours or days, preventing risk, damage or loss of valuable information. Moreover, InfoGuardian customers benefit from Seceon OTM's integrated and fully automated approach, enabling InfoGuardian analysts to detect and eliminate threats as they occur and to monitor and manage all traffic, customers and threats from a single pane of glass.
"We have chosen to partner with Seceon as it is clear that they are innovators and visionaries in the behavioral analytics field," said Yugan Reddy, CEO, InfoGuardian. "With traditional security no longer meeting the high demands of companies today, and threats becoming more persistent, advanced and targeted, a new approach was needed as signature-based defenses are no longer effective and cannot truly protect any organization. This is where Seceon steps in."
InfoGuardian has teamed with Seceon developers to integrate the OTM platform with new products and technologies to ensure a well-rounded system with the ability to analyze and detect the latest threats; including, but not limited to, ransomware, spyware, greyware, malware and even command and control (CnC) systems. "The initial focus of the Seceon offering from InfoGuardian will be for the SMB market, however, given the speed of Seceon's development cycle and coming product enhancements, the focus is likely to spread to the enterprise market in the near future," continued Reddy.
Anticipating attackers' behavior choices, the solution enables any size company or partner to see and stop the threats as they happen, preventing risk, damage or loss of valuable information. Utilizing dynamic rule sets, Seceon OTM is fully automated—it never needs tuning, monitoring or new rules to be added, and analyzes and reports or remediates findings automatically in emails, texts. Seceon OTM provides cost-effective, operationally efficient and comprehensive protection for today's enterprise or service provider, giving organizations without dedicated security staff at long last an advantage over would-be attackers.
Taking a new approach to conventional threat detection and management, Seceon helps today's enterprise detect and stop both recognized and never-seen-before threats when they happen, instead of days, weeks or months later. Leveraging intelligent data collection and analysis, Seceon's Open Threat Management platform provides unmatched visibility across the entire network—from users and devices to applications and flows— surfacing only the most relevant threats in real-time and the means necessary to eliminate them immediately.
