WINNIPEG, Jan. 24, 2013, 2013 (Canada NewsWire via COMTEX) --
Seccuris Inc., today announced the release of its new OneStone Information Assurance Portal service, a transformative offering
developed through Seccuris' vast experience in managed security
services. As a premier North American information assurance integrator,
Seccuris provides clients with security and risk management consulting services,
managed security services, security solution integration, and education
OneStone is a cloud-based information security service that provides customers,
in all lines of business, 24x7 visibility into security issues and
risks across the enterprise.
Using Seccuris' advanced security information and event-management
technology, OneStone enables customers to select various services such as: threat and
vulnerability management, and business threat and risk assessments
through a software-as-a-service portal. The OneStone dashboard provides executives, security practitioners, and IT personnel
a view of relevant, summarized, and detailed information on the
organization's security posture and overall enterprise risk level.
The initial release of OneStone provides Threat Management services, including 24x7 monitoring and management of internal and
external threats to an organization's network environment. Using a
sophisticated correlation and threat reporting engine, OneStone is able to detect and alert on: anomalous behavior patterns, threats and
attacks creating data loss, privacy and compliance breaches, service
outages, and other business impacts on critical business applications,
operating systems and network devices. OneStone's services include:
-- Real-time analytics and business intelligence on threat event
-- A powerful security management system to track, manage and
report threat events;
-- The ability to access Seccuris Information Security Analysts
and Forensics services for expert immediate assistance 24x7;
-- Comprehensive reports to demonstrate security control, risk
management, and compliance.
"With threats to an organization's information assets and the cost of
remaining secure increasing all the time, we developed OneStone to effectively address these needs," says Geoff Besko, President and
CEO of Seccuris, "OneStone is more than a service; it's a capability...enabling organizations of
all sizes to have improved threat visibility and providing them the
ability to respond to the new realities of information security...
rapidly, cost-effectively and with confidence."
Response from customers to OneStone has been overwhelmingly positive. Rick Wanner, Client Technology
Manager (Corporate Security) at SaskTel in Regina, one of the first
customers to use the OneStone Threat Management service, commented: "Our team really likes the
advanced analytics, and the way OneStone maps security issues to an IT
problem. The built-in ticketing workflow allows us to further
streamline the remediation process." Andrew Glasser SaskTel, Director of Corporate Security went on to say:
"The addition of the OneStone service further enhances our ability to
respond effectively and rapidly to security events, and will enable us
to reduce the time required to stop a potential incident from turning
into a crisis."
To more effectively distribute OneStone in the North American market, Seccuris has developed a partner reseller program, aimed primarily at managed service providers (MSPs) and
telecommunications providers. The addition of cloud-based managed
security services provides MSPs and Telcos additional high value
services for their traditional managed and network service customers.
