Absolute Logic to participate in Alpha Testing for new CyberGuard 360 SMM tool; bigger than SIEM"
The product is being developed by CyberGuard 360, a company which has created and launched a suite of cybersecurity solutions, in part to meet the stringent compliance requirements for businesses and organizations impacted by the recent New York State Department of Financial Services Cybersecurity Regulation (23 NYCRR 500).
CyberGuard 360 is a separate company owned by Al Alper, Chief Executive Officer of Absolute Logic. Its mission is to develop and bring to market a solution set that incorporates products that monitor, detect and mitigate threats from cyber attacks under a single-pane-
"When we design a new product or tool, we know that seconds count, as do details, and having the latest information available," said Alper. "With Absolute Logic's 25+ years in the IT field, we felt it was important for us to be in the test group for this product in which we have so much confidence. And we have a strong group of colleague companies who will be part of the Alpha Testing."
Each company will evaluate the CyberGuard 360 SMM product, and provide a list of "must-haves"
The tool will incorporate all of the traditional SIEM (Security Information and Event Management) components, designed to further protect businesses from the growing and dangerous threat of cyber attacks on their infrastructure. But, Alper said, it will go much further. "This is bigger than just SIEM. CyberGuard 360's SMM incorporates all of the traditional SIEM tools with real-time information monitoring, management, scripting and remediation capabilities. And more. It will have top-level functionality and will become what every MSP and/or Enterprise IT department will use. This will provide 'single pane of glass' visibility into their environment and the real-time treat landscape that they struggle to defend themselves against, and point-and-click capabilities to mitigate and remediate them. Moreover, the management component goes above and beyond the traditional SIEM to incorporate powerful scripting and automation that have long been the domain of RMM tools that MSP's and Enterprise IT departments have used for decades. CyberGuard 360 is revolutionary in its approach; a mash up of SIEM and RMM to empower technology and security professionals in real-time.
"One of the challenges of SIEM platforms has been the time and distance between storing and analyzing data and the ability to do something meaningful to combat the threats they identify (and sometimes miss)," said Alper, who said that the SMM tool incorporates the very latest in techniques to be an effective deterrent against threats. "Most SIEM systems have faced challenges keeping up with real-time and immediate investigations of threats; and acting upon them requires a second or third level of effort. SIEM tools have more to contend with than ever before, and our research and development team has come up with what we believe is the best solution on the market."
He continued, "Our work as an IT firm led us to branch out and create a separate company to develop these products, based on what we've seen in the way of what our clients need. And now we will learn from the best and brightest in the industry and together we will develop a product unlike any that has been brought to market before."
The CG360 SMM will be an analytics-driven tool which provides real-time monitoring of threats across the entire technological domain, an organized means of reporting incidents, the ability to analyze large quantities of data to determine where the issues/incidents are occurring and the specific tools to confront and deal with threats immediately.
Absolute Logic will make the unique product available to the market in the late spring of 2018, and will support the product with training either at the Absolute Logic headquarters or at the user's location.
