Arctic Wolf Security Operations Cloud Reaches Massive Scale and a Global Footprint

Arctic Wolf | November 09, 2021

-Arctic Wolf®, a leader in security operations, today announced the global expansion of its industry-leading cloud-native platform, the Arctic Wolf Security Operations Cloud, to provide customers and partners with unified visibility, protection, and automation, through a growing number of technical integrations. With the establishment of a European Security Operations Center (SOC) in Frankfurt, Germany, Arctic Wolf customers in any location, will have full flexibility in how their native security solution data is stored and accessed to aid in their compliance with local and international data governance regulations.

Built on an open XDR architecture, the Arctic Wolf Security Operations Cloud has scaled to ingest, parse, enrich, and analyze over 1.6 trillion security events and 1.3 petabytes of data each week from over one million licensed users at 2,000 global customers. By leveraging machine learning and artificial intelligence the Arctic Wolf Security Operations Cloud now processes events at an equivalent or greater rate than that of other market-defining cloud platforms. This momentum is driven by a strong uptick in demand for the technology in the enterprise market, demonstrated by Arctic Wolf’s 510% year-over-year large enterprise ARR growth in the first quarter of the fiscal year.

Unlike the rest of the industry that is just now starting to parse solutions to integrate data from multiple attack surfaces, Arctic Wolf’s platform was built from day one on a cloud-native architecture that seamlessly ingests data from endpoint, network, identity, and cloud sources to deliver automated threat detection and response at scale. This unification of an organization’s security data ensures only verified security incidents are escalated to customers, effectively eliminating alert fatigue, and ensuring internal security resources have the time needed to focus on hardening their overall security posture.

Powering Security Operations at a Global Scale

To further support Arctic Wolf’s ongoing global expansion, the company has leveraged the scalability and extensibility of the AWS public cloud infrastructure, providing new customers the ability to have their native security solution data hosted within the Arctic Wolf Security Operations Cloud in their choice of the United States, Germany, or Canada.

With five SOCs spread across North America and Europe, as well as a growing team of remote security analysts, organizations within Arctic Wolf’s global customer base can have confidence that the Arctic Wolf Concierge Delivery Model aligns with the needs of their compliance requirements on their security journey to end cyber risk.

Delivering Critical Outcomes Across the Entire Security Operations Framework

The massive growth in the power and scale of the Arctic Wolf Security Operations Cloud has been pushed by explosive market demand for security operations, which has resulted in the company doubling its sales for eight consecutive years and achieving a $4.3B valuation as part of a $150M Series F funding round in July.

In addition to the business expansion driving the momentum of its cloud-native platform, Arctic Wolf has also made aggressive investments in ecosystem integrations, resulting in the Arctic Wolf Security Operations Cloud adding support for dozens of new security data sources over the last year. Arctic Wolf’s universal and unlimited approach to data ingestion allows customers to gain visibility and control over historically disparate security solutions, while removing the need for security leaders to choose which data sources are important or cost-effective to monitor.

Supporting Quotes:

“While every other aspect of the modern technology stack has a category-defining platform —think Salesforce, ServiceNow, and Workday— no one in cybersecurity has managed to unify the market and produce a true platform that serves all security operations use cases for midsize and enterprise customers,The Arctic Wolf Security Operations Cloud delivers exactly that – the unified security operations experience that owns the outcome for the customer, and our new global footprint makes it easier than ever for organizations to have full control over where their native security solution data is stored.”

Nick Schneider, president and chief executive officer of Arctic Wolf

“Accelerated digital transformation and the shift to cloud-based solutions require organizations to rethink data protection strategies and upscale their data security infrastructures to meet the ever-evolving privacy and data compliance landscape,” said Duncan Brown, vice president, European Enterprise Research, IDC. “This trend is global in nature and in Europe, in particular, we are seeing a rapid movement to adopt cloud environments. The vendors who will lead the market in that change will need to demonstrate a proven track record in delivering a mature, global cloud model that meets data sovereignty requirements without compromising speed and scalability.”

With the Security Operations Cloud, Arctic Wolf is the first to deliver a cloud-based platform that gives organizations the protection, resilience, and guidance they need to defend against cyber threats, including Managed Detection and Response (MDR), Managed Risk, Cloud Security Posture Management (CSPM), and Managed Security Awareness —each delivered by the unique concierge delivery model.

Aunalytics Launches Security Patching Platform as a Service

Aunalytics | September 27, 2022

Aunalytics, a leading data management and analytics company delivering managed IT and data platform services for mid-sized and enterprise businesses, today initiated its Security Patching Platform, Co-managed Patching as a Service to complement the company’s Advanced Security solution suite. Windows OS and supported 3rd party patch management allow for tighter security in the defense against cyberattacks and the new offering ensures active remediation. According to a 2022 Data Breach Investigations Report by Verizon, around 70 percent of successful cyberattacks exploited known vulnerabilities with available patches, making it important to update operating systems and applications regularly to prevent such attacks. Now, Aunalytics’ new technology as a service includes the tools, structure, strategy and intelligence for managing patch deployment and is a complete solution with best practices, templates, libraries, and built-in alert thresholds. Lack of security patching leads to vulnerabilities within an organization’s information systems, internal controls, or system processes, which can then be exploited by cybercriminals. Using a collection of tools, cyber attackers use the vulnerability to gain unauthorized access to corporate systems and data. Identifying and resolving vulnerabilities is very important since a successful exploit can lead to a full-scale system breach. Workstation and server application patching ensures that organizations have baseline protection against the latest security vulnerabilities, preventing such attacks before they occur. However, patching can be difficult to manage and update in real-time as software fixes are published on an ongoing basis. Setting up and coordinating manual patching across an organization can be extremely cumbersome, taking days to organize, schedule, and execute across an entire company. McKinsey cites good patch management as a top proactive maintenance measure that can help organizations prevent cyberattacks. However, knowing the priority level for patch installment can be confusing and lead to poor patch management as a result. Enlisting the help of a partner to employ security patching best-practices can add true value to many organizations. Aunalytics patch detection, download, and installment methods are developed considering each client's security and uptime requirements and prioritized in order of threat potential. Aunalytics’ experienced security patching team proactively monitors for updates, eliminating worry for end users and server administrators. As part of the new service, users gain access to comprehensive security solutions with customized alerting and vulnerability prioritization, leveraging proprietary solutions and processes. The platform facilitates collaboration between IT and security teams and includes the following capabilities: Inventory and performance management and proactive alerting Patch deployment control strategy, prioritization, planning Patch vetting and blacklisting intelligence Windows Operating System patch management Supported 3rd Party Patch Management Anti-Malware DNS-based Malware Protection Device Encryption Management Innovative management tool library “Security patch exploits can have extremely damaging effects on an organization, decreasing revenues or causing reputational damage, making it imperative to have security patching in place. “Aunalytics’ Security Patching Platform services allow for the rapid resolution of these concerns to maintain the highest levels of cyber-resiliency.” Chris Nicholson, Vice President of Managed IT Services About Aunalytics Aunalytics is a leading data management and analytics company delivering Insights-as-a-Service for mid-sized businesses and enterprises. Selected for the prestigious Inc. 5000 list for two consecutive years as one of the nation’s fastest growing companies, Aunalytics offers managed IT services and managed analytics services, private cloud services, and a private cloud-native data platform for data management and analytics.
