Managed Security Services are an extension of your security operations enabling 24×7 security operations center support and regulatory compliance. These services integrate your existing people, processes and technology to make security a force multiplier without the tremendous investment required to build the capability internally.
Instead of investing in the headcount, you can outsource key services to an Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) as an extension of your existing operations. Advantages of managed security services include:
- Consistent, known, and manageable costs with excellent return on investment
- Ability to leverage innovations and stay at the front of the technology curve
- Improved security and peace of mind knowing experts are proactively handling issues
- Internal team members can focus on strategic projects
Businesses have endless options available as MSSP partners and the array of choices, industry jargon, and configurable service options can cause analysis paralysis. Without a team of security experts to vet vendor service offerings, the MSSP selection process is daunting. Check out this blog post for tips on selecting an MSSP.
If you want someone to solve this problem for you using best-of-breed technology and professional services that have you up and running quickly, consider CyberSheath Managed Services leveraging AlienVault technology and shared intelligence. AlienVault® Unified Security Management® (USM) delivered by CyberSheath is quickly becoming the go-to solution for businesses of all shapes and sizes.
Like our customers, CyberSheath had an endless set of choices when selecting a technology to deliver our managed security services, and we chose Alien Vault. In addition to being a SANS Premier Affiliate Member, AlienVault technologies have been recognized globally and we chose AlienVault as a way to enable less expensive, faster and more effective managed security services.
CyberSheath Managed Security Services leverage the AlienVault unified approach to security which includes:
Unified Security Management® (USM)
Simple and affordable centralized threat detection & incident response which integrates with your existing IT workflow for 24/7 security coverage.
Integrated Threat Intelligence
Actionable threat intelligence updates from AlienVault Labs delivered continuously to the USM platform ensuring you always get the latest threat intelligence.
Security Orchestration & Automation with AlienApps™

CyberSheath tailored implementation of AlienVault technologies deliver five essential security capabilities in one platform:
The comprehensive solution provides complete cloud and on-premises monitoring. USM Anywhere cloud sensors natively monitor Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure Cloud and On-premises, virtual sensors run on VMware and Microsoft Hyper-V to monitor your physical and virtual IT infrastructure.
The “secret sauce” of leveraging AlienVault to deliver Asset Discovery, Vulnerability Assessment, Intrusion Detection, Behavioral Monitoring and SIEM and Log Management is partnering with an MSSP that has the flexibility to deliver what you need. CyberSheath delivers, monitors and manages AlienVault technologies, but we also monitor the many third-party products and widely-used technologies you’re already running so there’s no need to rip and replace.
Operational security enables compliance and CyberSheath tailors our MSSP services to enable immediate, tangible operational security improvements that facilitate regulatory compliance. Customized Alien Vault technology solutions mapped to your requirements make your business both secure and compliant. Chances are you don’t have the time or resources to manage compliance as a separate activity from securing your business, so we document the alignment between the two and deliver the services required to survive both an attack and an audit.
Delivering on the “service” part of being an MSSP is what differentiates CyberSheath from the dozens of other MSSP’s you can choose from. Of course, SLA’s are a part of every contract we write but there is an undocumented level of service that you get with CyberSheath that can’t be captured in an SLA. Unlike other providers, CyberSheath gives you access to a technical account executive who helps you solve new business challenges as they arise. When you are in the midst of an audit, deploying a new technology or just want to run something by an expert before briefing your boss, CyberSheath’s technical account executives answer your questions within the context of your existing business. We do it because we want to earn your business every day, not sell you more tools. Contact us today to learn more.
