netForensics Debuts Managed Services Security Suite
netForensics, which develops cloud security solutions for managed service providers (MSPs), has introduced a security suite for MSPs called nFX One. The new suite has four components for MSPs that want to deliver on-demand security services but do not have the resources to take on additional capital or operational expenses.
The components include:
- SP Monitor: Real-time event monitoring, visualization, reporting and alerting
- SP Detect: Threat detection, rules correlation and incident remediation system
- SP Inspect: Local threat detection, dynamic watch lists and vulnerability scoring
- SP Comply: Guidance and reporting on compliance-related security issues
netForensics has been serving MSPs in the enterprise and government verticals for over a decade. That experience, according to netForensics CEO Dale Cline, is a major reason why the company is confident that its new nFX One suite is in line with what many MSPs have been looking to offer. “We understand they [MSPs] have a serious responsibility to prevent threats against their customer’s brand and valuable assets,” Cline said in a prepared statement. “…previously, the investment required to implement effective security-as-a-service (SaaS) was so significant that the entry into the market was cost prohibitive.”
But Cline and the netForensics team say those costly days are over for its MSP customers. The new nFX One security suite empowers MSPs to deliver threat detection, threat profiling and logging-as-a-service. nFX One also gives MSPs end-to-end networks visibility so that they can detect botnets, malware, hackers and suspicious network activity. The overall goal is to help MSPs support more customers using fewer resources.
This is the first major development from netForensics since the company released its hybrid cloud security management solution in May 2011.
