Navisite, part of Spectrum Enterprise, and Alert Logic, an MSSP, have teamed up to provide an enhanced, integrated portfolio of managed threat detection and remediation services aimed at helping enterprise clients achieve improved security.

Alert Logic’s SIEMless Threat Management platform is integrated in Navisite’s managed security service, enabling automated threat monitoring and remediation, and event insight and asset visibility via Navisite’s Proximity client portal.

Tom Bailey, Navisite’s vice president of product and professional services, tells Channel Partners that combining Alert Logic’s security platform and Navisite’s expertise in managed services provides channel partners with an offering that addresses the skills gap that exists in the market to deliver security solutions.

“The combined solution completely addresses the detection, response and remediation requirements that many clients want, but lack the skills and resources to implement,” he said. “Navisite and Alert Logic each have a network of channel partners that will benefit from the combined solution.”

Pairing the ability to detect and respond with the ability to quickly remediate security incidents as part of a managed service is the “new baseline” in managed security services, Bailey said.

“Alert Logic provides [a] breadth of coverage across modern security domains such as managed detection and response (MDR) and vulnerability risk management,” he said. “The partnership between Navisite and Alert Logic takes that breadth of coverage to the next level, providing an outcome-based service where Navisite’s managed services implement and manage the solution. Visibility and awareness are key, but reaction and remediation are critical. Driving towards an outcome which results in a stronger security posture results in a competitive advantage.”

The combined capabilities enable Navisite to:

  • Collect asset data, logs, events, network telemetry, endpoint, user behavior, dark web, file and process data;

  • Correlate collected data for behavior and anomaly detection;

  • Validate incidents by reviewing indicators of compromise (IoC), searching adjacent data sets to extract the signal from the noise;

  • Report and escalate validated security incidents to responsible parties, eliminating false positives; and

  • Remediate issues rapidly, bringing experts across both the underlying infrastructure and security domains.

“Cyberattacks are more frequent, harder to stop, and a greater legal, reputational and financial liability than ever,” said Bob Lyons, Alert Logic’s CEO. “Customers are looking for help in mitigating the risk of a breach, and ensuring their business-critical applications and customer data are secure across all their environments. We are thrilled to partner with Navisite to combine Alert Logic’s robust capabilities and scale with Navisite’s ability to take that scale and personalize it to meet specific customer needs.”
