Prnewswire | May 02, 2023
Logically, one of the nation's leading managed security and IT service providers, today announced a partnership with SaaS Alerts and the launch of the specialized solution providing customers with constant, real-time monitoring of their Software-as-a-Service applications.
SaaS Alerts monitors tools like Microsoft Office, Salesforce, Dropbox, and Google Workspaces to detect potential threats in cloud applications. The automation tool identifies ongoing security threats and provides comprehensive alerting and responses across all applications. The result is a lowered risk of data breaches and customizable reporting that offers customers insights into security threats and patterns.
"As cyber threats continue to mount in today's digital age, the importance of application security cannot be overstated," said Buddy Pitt, Virtual Chief Security Officer at Logically. "SaaS applications carry a substantial risk due to the sensitive data they often contain, and ensuring that the flexibility and scalability they offer is paired with enhanced security, is paramount. SaaS Alerts offers threat detection, intelligent automation, and comprehensive alerting to do just that."
In addition, the data reports that SaaS Alerts provides are calibrated to empower organizations to gain insights into not only security threats but their patterns too. This, in turn, allows business leaders to take proactive measures against future disruptive incidents.
"We're thrilled to partner with Logically to help protect their customers' critical SaaS business applications," said Jim Lippie, CEO of SaaS Alerts. "Given the current threat landscape, it's more important than ever to ensure customers are protected from evolving security threats. We're excited to see how our partnership continues to evolve in the years to come."
To further underscore Logically's commitment to application security in today's digital landscape, Buddy Pitt, along with Logically's Chief Operating Officer Keith Johnson, hosted a webinar titled, "Fortify Your Defenses: Why Application Security is Crucial in Today's Digital Landscape," on April 26, which discussed data and business application security and how SaaS Alerts are a valuable weapon in the ongoing battle against data breaches.
"We're proud to launch SaaS Alerts at this critical moment where rapid risk mitigation matters most. It's yet another tool in our arsenal of products that ensures our customers receive best-in-class safety and security," said Johnson.

Secureworks® (NASDAQ: SCWX), a global leader in cybersecurity, today announced two new offerings to unify the way industrial organizations prevent, detect, and respond to threats across the OT and IT landscapes.
Taegis XDR for OT – Secureworks award-winning XDR platform that combines intelligence from OT with security telemetry across the IT landscape into a single unified threat prevention, detection and response platform. The platform is for Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) who want to deliver Managed Detection and Response (MDR) solutions, and for organizations that manage their own SOCs.
Taegis ManagedXDR for OT – Secureworks MDR offering that empowers industrial organizations, such as manufacturers, to secure both OT and IT environments with a team of security experts detecting, investigating, and responding to threats 24x7.
The convergence of OT and IT in the industrial sector brings technological and economic benefits, but also increases risk. The more OT systems are digitally connected, the larger the overall attack surface becomes, making OT an increasingly attractive target for threat actors. This, combined with a global cybersecurity talent shortage numbering in the millions, has led to unprecedented levels of cyberattacks impacting the industrial sector. According to Gartner®1, manufacturing companies are now among the most targeted for cyberattacks, comprising 23% of all attacks. Secureworks Counter Threat Unit™ data shows that approximately 22% of Secureworks' emergency incident response engagements between April 2022 and April 2023 were in the manufacturing industry alone. Manufacturing made up 20% of all ransomware-based incident response engagements that Secureworks remediated in the same period. Gartner also predicts that by 2025, 70% of asset-intensive organizations will have converged their security functions across both enterprise and operational environments.2 Yet, in industrial environments overall, OT is often managed differently from IT with no centralized visibility across both.
"As OT and IT systems infrastructure becomes more interdependent and connected, the risks from threats traversing these environments are rapidly escalating," said Dave Gruber, Principal Analyst with Enterprise Security Group. "Security operations teams need visibility into the combined OT/IT environment to detect, investigate, and respond to these complex threats. Secureworks' move to offer a specialized OT security solution by leveraging its own, proven Taegis XDR platform highlights the importance of this increasing threat."
"Industrial organizations will continue to be challenged by an expanding attack surface and evolving threat landscape. Their risks include unplanned shutdowns, financial losses, and harm to human populations that rely on critical services," said Kyle Falkenhagen, Chief Product Officer, Secureworks. "And the potential costs are staggering. For example, manufacturers lose an average of $148 per second3 of unplanned downtime – almost $9,000 per minute. As a managed solution that unifies threat prevention, detection and response of OT and IT into a single platform, Secureworks helps organizations with OT environments reduce cyber risks and enhance their security postures as they complete their digital transformations," Falkenhagen concluded.
Taegis ManagedXDR for OT
Industrial organizations can reduce risk by bringing Taegis XDR's threat monitoring, detection, investigation and response capabilities across both OT and IT environments, eliminating the visibility challenges often associated with OT and IT systems. Taegis XDR is already used by five of the top 20 manufacturers in the world. Now, with the first integrated MDR solution for OT and IT, organizations can unify their security monitoring and visibility strategies under a single platform, while gaining the benefits of a fully managed security solution using Taegis ManagedXDR.
The solution includes:
24x7 threat monitoring with unlimited access to security experts in 90 seconds or less, collaborative design of OT and IT response processes, customizable rules and playbooks, quarterly expert security reviews, monthly threat hunting, onboarding support, and access to proactive services (including incident response planning and adversarial testing).
Taegis XDR platform, a SaaS security platform that processes more than 640 billion events daily across more than 2,000 customers to enable superior detection and response. The Taegis platform integrates feeds from third-party tools that are normalized and analyzed, along with Secureworks own proprietary data and global threat intelligence curated by the Counter Threat Unit.
Secureworks Taegis endpoint agent and the Secureworks Taegis iSensor IDS/IPS device for monitoring IT and OT traffic.
Integrations with leading OT solutions.
Hundreds of out-of-the-box integrations across different technology solutions including Google, Mimecast, AWS, Microsoft, and Netskope among others.
Access to a full suite of proactive security testing services to raise cyber resiliency across OT and IT environments.
Secureworks brings the power of Taegis XDR to OT environments by delivering:
Superior threat detection and unmatched response across OT and IT environments through the Taegis XDR platform.
