AccelOps part of MainNerve’s Virtual CSO Program to manage technical security solutions
SANTA CLARA, Calif., and COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. – Jan. 23, 2014
Managed Security Service Provider MainNerve has selected AccelOps’ analytics-driven IT operations management platform to provide world-class security and compliance automation for its Virtual Chief Security Officer (CSO) Program.
With Cyber Security Operations Centers in Colorado and Texas, MainNerve is a global leader in securing critical information systems. MainNerve joins the rapidly growing number of Managed Service Providers (MSPs) and Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) who rely on AccelOps to power their security (SIEM), performance, availability and compliance offerings.
“We were looking for best-of-breed SIEM, and we found that in AccelOps,” said Jeff Logsdon, founder and COO of MainNerve. “AccelOps’ functionality and usability were tremendous. It’s a complex offering, but AccelOps makes it simple. The solution is more sophisticated and easier to use than other competitors.”
MainNerve’s Virtual CSO provides managed technical security solutions, including: Unified Threat Prevention; log collection and management with storage; and Adaptive Darknet, MainNerve’s persistent threat solution. It also includes administrative security solutions, including HIPAA security risk assessment and gap analysis; strategic security roadmap to the HIPAA standard; and support in creating HIPAA policies and procedures.
AccelOps’ virtual appliance software manages security, performance, availability and compliance, all on a single screen. AccelOps automatically discovers, analyzes and automates IT issues in machine and big data across organizations’ data centers and cloud resources, spanning servers, storage, networks, security, applications and users.
“AccelOps’ compliance modules make it easy to point-and-click and apply the standard, Logsdon said. “It helps us save a lot of time across the security event landscape.”
“Being compliant doesn’t always mean you’re secure, but being secure almost always means you’re compliant,” he said. “With AccelOps, MainNerve’s customers will be secure and compliant.”
Companies who ignore compliance regulations face possible jail time or potentially millions in fines, Logsdon said. “People deny it or try to do compliance in-house. But compliance mandates are changing rapidly, sending companies scrambling. They know they have to do something. Over time, companies will find that compliance is a must-have as part of an overall security program.”
AccelOps provides the most automated compliance reports out of the box, including PCI DSS, HIPAA, ISO, SOX, GLBA, COBIT and GPG13.
“I like working with the AccelOps team,” Logsdon said. “AccelOps was quick to build a program that suited our needs. It’s a big value-add for our clients.”
