BI.ZONE to offer outsourced cybersecurity
BI.ZONE has announced the launch of its new commercial branch—Managed Security Services (MSS). This would allow customers to protect their infrastructure by accessing in-cloud information security services and solutions rolled out in the BI.ZONE Security Operations Center (SOC).
In order to respond to modern threats, companies would require qualified specialists and pricey equipment, which in itself entails big investments in staff training and technical maintenance. Yet, given the current state of affairs, many companies run into problems when looking for staff to cover all cybersecurity-related tasks. Small and medium businesses, though less vulnerable to attacks, have fewer resources to spend on protection and maintaining expert personnel. The growing demand for external resources satisfies both cases.
The services offered by the MSS include cloud solutions for email protection, DDoS mitigation and web application security, as well as services for administering security tools, monitoring and responding to incidents. All services are deployed in the internal BI.ZONE infrastructure, and they are based on the company’s proprietary developments and expert models for identifying various cybersecurity incidents. BI.ZONE’s collaboration with leading cybersecurity players enhances the effectiveness of the services provided. In particular, the DDoS protection service uses the Qrator affiliate network of traffic filtering, and the SOC services provide specialized solutions from leading vendors, including IBM. The cloud infrastructure components span across different sites throughout the Russian Federation in order to ensure high availability and reliability of the MSS.
Managed Security Services significantly speed up the process of creating cybersecurity systems as opposed to the traditional approach of integrating systems or creating a corporate SOC. Cloud solutions allow you to quickly connect the necessary protection service (within several hours to several weeks), all services are easily managed and accompanied by flexible reports in your personal account. From a financial point of view, MSS makes it possible to transfer the wage budget to OPEX and avoid capital expenditures on acquisition, installation and maintenance of expensive security equipment, which reduces the tax burden on the business. For convenience, all MSS services can be activated for a one-month free trial, giving customers space and freedom to decide on a permanent service subscription after the pilot term.
