Modus Collaborates with AgileBlue to Introduce Modus Data Protector™, for Managed Breach Protection from Cybersecurity Threats

AgileBlue | April 30, 2021

Security threats grow rapidly, and proper investigation and response necessitate the use of people who are familiar with endpoints, networks, cloud systems, and other technologies. Many businesses need a professional SOC manager, an accomplished Security Analyst, a Threat Researcher, a Security Architect, a Security Analyst, a Cloud Security Architect, and so on. This ensures that you need a team that is always improving to have the best skills as you need them. Unfortunately, there is a critical lack of specialized cybersecurity expertise in the overall talent industry, and there are not enough qualified resources to fulfill the need.

Cybersecurity is complicated, and different technologies will often be needed to work together. Maintaining technical expertise to implement, update, and customize each component, as well as educating the staff on new versions and features, is needed. You must manage these distributor relationships, licenses, and training operations if you operate your SOC. Having coverage 24 hours a day, seven days a week is no longer discretionary. It's a must! Allowing an enemy to sow seeds for hours, days, or weeks makes it infinitely more difficult to control and eliminate risks. The adversary is aware that they only have a finite amount of time to do as much harm as possible, as in the case of ransomware, or to set back doors, as in the case of data exfiltration.

You have the best chance of recovery if you can investigate and answer within minutes, so having a solution that is available 24 hours a day, seven days a week is essential.

If money isn't a problem and you have the resources devoted to building out a 24x7 Security Operations Center, it could make sense to go in that direction. If you are limited on any of those fronts, Modus suggests that SOCaaS is a safer option. In summary, Modus Data ProtectorTM SOCaaS will allow you to:

• Leverage security insights from other organizations

• Have predictable spending – no need for surprise budget requests

• Handle alerts more efficiently and with more predictable results

• Have the agility and keep pace with your ever-changing organization’s IT demands

• Enjoy a 24 x 7 x 365 promise to you that includes human-based responses, asset discovery, vulnerability assessment, intrusion detection, behavior monitoring, log management, and cloud-based SIEM
