As disruptive innovations and new business models transform organizations and communities around the world, it increases the landscape for the evolving cyber threats. Companies of all types and sizes are embracing the digital transformation. Cloud adoption and user mobility are shifting the locations of applications, data and users and have created new vectors for cyber risks. This new, increasingly connected digital world is bringing tremendous efficiencies to the way we do business. However, along with these advantages, the digital era is also bringing more frequent and aggressive cyber threats. All businesses are now concerned about the impact of cyber risk and must do something to combat this risk if they hope to remain successful.  Organizations need to prepare for these threats to improve their security posture and support business goals. Current schemes are insufficient or leave significant gaps in addressing the growing cybersecurity risks that disrupt organizations of all sizes.

There is an increasing evidence that attackers are targeting both high profile organizations and SMB/SMEs making the headline news almost every day and even some making the biggest news of the year. The Texas Ransomware Attacks, Facebook Password Breach and the WhatsApp Trojan Incident are few examples of recent cyber-attacks. Such breaches cause fatal economic and reputational damages to an organization and even risk of losing the business.

Founded in 2015, Seceon empowers Enterprises and MSSPs to analyze operational security data, proactively detect threats and vulnerabilities, and automatically contain & eliminate them in real-time. It goes beyond traditional defense-in-depth to “Comprehensive Cybersecurity for the Digital-Era” through the coalescence of Seceon’s Dynamic Threat Models, Machine Learning and Artificial Intelligence (AI) with actionable context and situational awareness.

Seamless Security in Real-time

 Today threat surfaces have broaden significantly and security teams have to defend against sophisticated cyber-attacks, such as, Ransomware, DDOS, Inside threats, Vulnerability exploits, APTs, Email phishing, etc. Multi-layered security, also known as defense in depth, has typically been a go-to strategy and is implemented using multiple silo solutions to prevent, detect and respond to cyberthreats. The challenge with multi-layered approach is not the amount of information but the ability to actually leverage it to provide comprehensive visibility and faster correlation for detection and response.

Seceon is dedicated to eliminating cyber risks faced by enterprises and small-to-medium sized businesses (SMBs). In its mission to ensure “Cybersecurity Done Right,” the company developed its Open Threat Management (OTM) Platform from scratch. Seceon OTM platform scales to millions of assets to collect raw data such as streaming logs, network flows and identities from all apps, devices, network infrastructure and cloud infrastructure including SaaS, PaaS, IaaS, IoTs and IIoTs, as well as advanced threat intelligence to provide comprehensive visibility of users, hosts, applications, and services to protect against known and unknown threats in real-time, while minimizing costs, staff bandwidth constraints and performance impact. OTM uses AI with actionable intelligence, machine learning, and dynamic threat models with behavioral analytics as its cornerstones and is built on Big/Fast Data architecture. It helps enterprises automatically generate prioritized threat alerts that matter in real-time and empowers the SOC / IT teams to detect and respond to the threats quickly before critical data is exfiltrated.

 Seceon offers two solutions built on our Open Threat Management (OTM) Platform:

  • Seceon aiSIEM™

 Seceon aiSIEM™ goes beyond traditional SIEM and eliminates the need for adding multiple silo solutions. It ingests raw streaming data – logs from all devices, OS, Apps and Services in the ecosystem (on-premise, cloud); Flows, such as, NetFlow, IPFix, sFlow, jFlow from network infrastructure, and subscribes to identity management infrastructure, such as, Microsoft® Windows® Active Directory™ service, LDAP, DNS, DHCP, Azure AD, etc.. This streaming platform has functionalities of traditional SIEM, SOAR, user and entity behavioral analytics (UEBA), Network Traffic Analysis (NTA), Network-Based Anomaly Detection (NBAD), Intrusion Detection System (IDS), threat intelligence feeds for correlation and enrichment, advanced machine learning (ML). The aiSIEM platform generates meaningful alerts with context and situational awareness and enhanced accuracy from the scores of threat indicators otherwise analyzed by the security experts. It also has AI with actionable intelligence for automated or via push button containment and elimination of threats in real-time.

  • Seceon aiMSSP™

 Seceon aiMSSP™ enables Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) to offer outsourced security services that include security monitoring for 24×7, threat intelligence, proactive threat detection, elimination and containment in real-time, at minimal and predictable costs. It empowers MSSPs to deliver affordable, managed / co-managed security services – aiMDR, aiSIEM, and aiSOC – to enterprises, SMEs, and SMBs maximizing their own revenue-generation. aiMSSP enables MSSPs to grow without having to make significant upfront investments of resources (pay-as-you-grow model) and become a Master MSSP by acquiring new MSSP customers.

Exemplifying Expertise

A game-changer and pioneer in the industry, Seceon’s proprietary technology, Open Threat Management Platform is the first fully-automated solution offering proactive threat detection, containment and elimination. Since the launch of this platform, back in 2016, Seceon has won more than 50 cybersecurity awards and has gained recognition from leading industry influencers including 451 Research, Ovum, Enterprise Management Associates, IDC Research, CSO, International Data Group, Markets, and Solutions Review.

According to Grigoriy Millis, Chief Technology Officer of a large financial service provider managing 700+ customers and $900+ billion in assets, ““When we did a side-by-side comparison between Seceon and some of the other solutions from larger providers, Seceon was able to detect real-life security threats that the other platforms did not detect. Leveraging Seceon’s aiMSSP solution, we are now processing more than 700 million events per day with less than one percent rate of false positives and have increased the efficiency of our IT and SOC personnel by over 80%.”

Seceon’s Open Threat Management (OTM) is the industry’s first fully-automated platform offering real-time, proactive threat detection, automated containment and elimination for all threat categories, including malware, ransomware, spyware, botnet, compromised credentials, insider threats, denial of services for applications & protocols, vulnerability exploits for web/emails/OS applications, data breaches and exfiltration, IT mistakes, IDS, network behaviors and IoT. The unique features of Seceon’ solution that make it stand out can be described as:

  • Comprehensive Visibility: The OTM Platform ingests all raw streaming data (Logs, Packets, Flows, Identities) and provides a real-time extensive view of all assets (users, hosts, servers, applications, data access and movement, traffic) that are on-premise, cloud or hybrid, and their interactions.
  • Reduce Mean-Time-To-Identify (MTTI) with Proactive Threat Detection: The platform proactively detects threats and surfaces threats in real-time without an agent or alert fatigue.
  • Reduce Mean-Time-To-Resolve (MTTR) with Automatic Threat Remediation: The OTM Platform performs automatic threat containment and elimination in real-time. It also provides clear actionable steps to eliminate the threats that can either be taken automatically by the system or manually by the security expert post-analysis.
  • Continuous Compliance, Policy Management, and Risk Monitoring: The platform provides continuous compliance and scheduled or on-demand reporting for HIPAA, GDPR, PCI-DSS, NIST and many other similar regulations.

Its solutions offer flexible deployment models and are built to solidify enterprises with widespread cybersecurity and MSSPs offering aiMDR, aiSOC, aiMSSP, and aiSIEM services. Anticipating attackers’ behavior choices, Seceon’s environment-agnostic solution identifies both known and unknown threats in real-time, preventing risk, damage or loss of valuable information.
