With the rise of digital economy, data breaches will continue to prevail. As cyber risk grows, and threats become more sophisticated and pervasive in landscape, we expect to see more companies adopting comprehensive platforms that enable them to eliminate the need for silo solutions, which leave gaps in businesses’ security posture. Small and mid-sized businesses (SMBs) will continue to be a soft target but large enterprises will not be spared either. Seceon is helping businesses of all sizes stay one step ahead of cybercriminals.
Seceon was founded with a clear vision of delivering “Comprehensive Cybersecurity for the Digital-Era” and solving the biggest cybersecurity challenges faced by digitalization. Traditional cybersecurity products have focused on monitoring tasks as organizations transition to the digital world. However, that’s no longer adequate on its own since going digital exposes many services and applications to security issues. Seceon’s platform was created to proactively detect breaches and threats via comprehensive visibility of all assets (users, applications, services and hosts and their interactions), and automatically contain and eliminate those threats in real-time.
Today, Seceon aiMSSP and aiSIEM solutions are deployed across the globe, protecting thousands of customers and processing more than 50 billion transactions/events each day. Seceon is on track to reach 1 trillion transactions per day by the end of 2019. Its continued goal is to give customers the best comprehensive cybersecurity solutions, so that they can focus on their core business instead of worrying about cybersecurity.
Passionate Leader Spurs Success
Chandra Pandey, the Founder and CEO of Seceon, is passionate about cybersecurity and renowned for developing innovative solutions. He works closely with customers to define and address the problems, implications, and solutions for defending corporate assets in today’s highly-connected enterprise. Chandra holds multiple patents in security, networking and computing.
Chandra realized from the start that, in order to really help the industry, Seceon would need not only to develop the best possible cybersecurity platform for enterprises and SMBs. It would also need solutions that worked instantly out-of-the-box, were easy for enterprises to manage, and were affordable for even small businesses—which are increasingly targeted by cyber criminals because they often don’t have the expertise or resources to stop attacks. Thus, Chandra and his team created comprehensive, cost-effective and quick to implement cybersecurity solutions that would solve the tough cybersecurity issues companies have been struggling with.
Seceon provides the industry’s first fully-automated solutions offering real-time, proactive threat detection, 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, IPS, IDS and network behaviors.
Seceon offers two solutions: aiSIEM™ and aiMSSP™
Seceon aiSIEM goes way beyond the traditional SIEM and eliminates the need for adding multiple silo solutions. It ingests raw streaming data from applications, identity systems, flows and raw traffic from networks to provide comprehensive visibility, real-time proactive threat detection, automated threat containment and elimination, and continuous compliance, policy management and reporting.
Seceon aiMSSP enables Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) to offer outsourced security services to SMBs, including 24×7 security monitoring, threat intelligence, and real-time detection and remediation, at nominal and predictable linear costs.
Awards and Accolades
Seceon has won more than 80 cybersecurity awards since it launched its platform in April 2016, including the recent 2019 Cyber Defense Magazine for “Hot Company MSSP Platform InfoSec Award,” “Next Gen Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) InfoSec Award” and 2019 Info Security PG’s Global Excellence award for Best SIEM Solution.
The company gained recognition from leading industry influencers including 451 Research, Ovum, Enterprise Management Associates, IDC Research, CSO, International Data Group, Markets and Markets, and Solutions Review. In 2019, Seceon aiSIEM was named a leading solution in the “EMA Top 3 Decision Guide for Security Analytics.”
The team also built an award-winning channel partner program, steadily increasing and solidifying Seceon’s network of 50+ U.S. and international Managed Service Providers, value-added distributors and reseller partners.
As a 100% channel-driven company, Seceon faced challenges in its initial days when partners’ processes and approvals required longer cycles to reach customer engagement. Over time, Seceon learned how to identify partners that are equally vested in Seceon’s goals and motivated to quickly achieve them.
As a self-funded startup outside of the Silicon Valley and VC universe, another challenge is to generate visibility for Seceon’s unique approach while also establishing credibility within the market. However, once businesses try Seceon solutions, their response is overwhelming and instantly positive because the solutions are easy to deploy and manage, and incredibly effective at accurately detecting and stopping threats in minutes. This empowers the operations team with detailed insights to uphold and successfully protect the organization in case of a breach.
Contributing Factors of Success
Seceon is laser-focused on eliminating cyber threats and staying ahead of cybercriminals by adding innovations to its aiSIEM and aiMSSP “Comprehensive Cybersecurity for the Digital-Era” solutions. Seceon’s culture helps spur the company’s progress and innovation.

Seceon’s award-winning solutions are the result of 50+ passionate professionals on mission to do cybersecurity right, instead of doing another “me too” product.
Businesses are experiencing rampant computer network security breaches. These breaches can go undetected for days, months and years, despite businesses deploying cybersecurity point solutions and employing armies of trained professionals to manage those solutions. This complex set of tools is not an effective strategy as, more often than not, threats and data breaches are only detected after the damage is done. Worse yet, 90% of businesses can’t afford these expensive solutions.
Seceon is empowering enterprises to defeat known and new cyber-attacks in real-time. Seceon will continue to provide the most effective and affordable real-time cyber threat detection, containment and elimination solutions so that any organization, regardless of size, can be properly protected.
