DALLAS – May 1, 2018 – Masergy, a leading provider of hybrid networking, managed security and cloud communications solutions, has been named the “Most Innovative Managed Security Service Provider” in the 2018 Cyber Defense Magazine (CDM) Infosec Awards. The recognition was based on enhancements to the Unified Enterprise Security (UES) managed detection and response platform including Managed Endpoint Detection and Response (MEDR), Network Visibility Tool, and Managed Cloud Workload Protection.
“We’ve seen threats against enterprise customers explode like never before, which reflects that conventional approaches to security are not enough,” said Chris MacFarland, CEO, Masergy. “Masergy’s Managed Detection and Response (MDR) platform can significantly enhance an organization’s security posture through comprehensive threat detection and response from a team of seasoned experts backed by advanced artificial intelligence. We are also constantly looking to innovate and expand our capabilities to stay ahead of fast-evolving threats. This honor validates that our approach is helping customers focus on their business, while we address today’s complex security challenges.”
In its sixth year, CDM’s awards spotlight companies that offer a unique and compelling value proposition. After reviewing nearly 3,000 companies, CDM selected Masergy’s UES for its comprehensive, fully-managed suite of security services. The offerings can be deployed as a standalone or fully integrated solution complementing the customer’s existing technology investments. Masergy’s MDR platform is backed 24/7 by certified security experts in Security Operations Centers (SOC) across three continents.
In 2017, Masergy’s new additions to its MDR platform included:
- Managed Endpoint Detection and Response – 24/7 monitoring, machine learning, behavior analytics, and detection and response technology to identify and isolate compromised endpoints
- Network Visibility Tool – Utilizes NetFlow data, Active Directory, geolocation, syslog, BGP, and other metadata to identify and investigate malicious activity
- Managed Cloud Workload Protection – Agent-based automated technology that deploys quickly and scales immediately across cloud environments
“With Cybercrime continuing to gain momentum, surpassing global drug crime last year and reaching over $600B in theft and damages, we are proud to see Masergy as an award-winning innovator, offering a new approach to defeat these criminals,” said Pierlugi Paganini, Editor-in-Chief, Cyber Defense Magazine.
