CARLSBAD, Calif., July 24, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Proficio, one of the fastest growing global cybersecurity service providers, today announced enhancements to its existing Splunk offering to better assist clients in optimizing their SIEM investments.

Companies and organizations utilize Splunk software to search and monitor their security logs as part of their SIEM toolset. Because of the increased number of threats and alerts, many users lack the resources to adequately maintain use cases to keep up with the latest threats and administer their Splunk to its full potential. Hiring an MSSP to deploy use cases, correlation rules and expert monitoring can help reduce alert fatigue and improve overall SIEM performance.

“Time and time again, we’ve seen companies that simply cannot manage and properly investigate the volume of alerts delivered by their SIEM because they don’t have the resources or processes in place to do so,” stated Brad Taylor, CEO at Proficio. “Through our enhanced Splunk offering, enterprises can leverage our resources and expertise to protect them from the latest threats while maximizing the return on their investment.”

Proficio’s enhanced services for Splunk include:

  • 24×7 cloud-based security operations center
  • Monitoring, investigation, alerting and response
  • Experienced cloud-based security analysts
  • Proven use cases, correlation rules and workflows
  • Intelligent, actionable alerts
  • On-premises or cloud-based Splunk instances
  • Advanced analytics
  • Threat intelligence
  • Case management
  • Custom runbook

Proficio offers two service platforms for supporting Splunk. The first is a managed service option for conducting administrative and maintenance tasks, and monitoring of log collection. The second is a security event monitoring and alerting service which provides 24×7 coverage, accurate detection, investigations to validate threats, alert notifications, response recommendations, and an on-call SOC analyst.

“Security teams are often overwhelmed by too many alerts and not enough visibility,” according to Taylor. “In general, a typical in-house security analyst can only conduct approximately eight investigations per day. That’s simply not enough in today’s evolving threat landscape.  By adding Proficio’s services, proven use cases, correlation rules and expert security analysts, enterprises can turn their Splunk into a response tool, not just an event monitoring channel.”
