Today, from Black Hat 2016 in Las Vegas, CompuCom announced the expansion of its Managed Security Services (MSS) through the release of its upgraded Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) services. In my earlier blog, I spoke about the cyberskills shortage and the active role that partners can play in helping to alleviate this problem for customers. This is a great example of a partner who is helping enterprise, commercial and small- and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) safely embrace public cloud adoption, enable their employees to use personal devices for company work and leverage the Internet of Things (IoT) to collect and process Big Data.
CompuCom now provides the latest in security event monitoring to identify and halt threats before they become a breach. When combined with its other network, service desk, data center and cloud managed services, the portfolio delivers an exclusive, comprehensive managed IT service that is smarter, safer and more affordable. This helps businesses respond to threats faster, leading to faster remediation times and minimized costs.
To achieve these new capabilities, CompuCom has deployed McAfee Enterprise Security Manager (ESM) as its SIEM tool in a new and exciting way, as a completely cloud hosted and delivered solution. By leveraging a cloud delivered ESM service, CompuCom can respond to our client’s needs in a faster, agile and more cost effective manner.
CompuCom’s SIEM and McAfee’s ESM partnership include:
- CompuCom’s SIEM and McAfee’s endpoint, which deliver more security features and functions, including real-time threat management on servers and desktops, virtualized or physical, on premises or in the cloud.
- Advanced correlation of events across multiple systems and platforms. Today’s attacks are often coordinated across different vulnerabilities.
- CompuCom’s comprehensive Managed Security Service that can be delivered on almost any manufacturer’s endpoint hardware.
For those of you at Black Hat this week, you can stop by McAfee booth #1465 on August 3 at 3:15pm PT for a presentation from Chad Atchley, Cloud Product Director, CompuCom.
