The BlueVoyant Modern SOC unites its Managed Detection and Response (MDR) solution with Microsoft Azure Sentinel and Microsoft Defender XDR; expands user investment in Microsoft Security Tools to provide 24/7 Security Operations-as-a-Service
NEW YORK, March 9, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — BlueVoyant, a cybersecurity services company, today announced the launch of the BlueVoyant Modern Security Operations Center (BlueVoyant Modern SOC), an end-to-end portfolio of consulting, implementation and Managed Detection and Response Services (MDR), powered by Microsoft technology. The BlueVoyant Modern SOC unites its Managed Services with Microsoft’s Azure Sentinel and XDR capabilities through 365 Defender and Azure Defender, providing Microsoft end-customers with a one-stop cybersecurity solution that maximizes and extends their investment in Microsoft tools and takes their security posture to the next level.
The exponential growth in remote networking and the acceleration of digital transformation initiatives expanding the attack surface—combined with stretched-to-the-limit cybersecurity teams who lack critical visibility into their extended on-premises and cloud infrastructure ecosystems—creates the perfect storm, making vulnerable enterprises a target of new, broader and more aggressive cyber attacks.
Real-Time Threat Intelligence within Azure Sentinel Environment
Cybercriminals are targeting more than just traditional endpoints. Consequently, endpoint-centric detection and response solutions alone do not provide the visibility and response capabilities required to identify and neutralize these broader attacks. With the BlueVoyant Modern SOC, organizations can experience in real time our security experts leveraging its automation and integrated threat intelligence capabilities to identify threats and protect their enterprise—directly within their Azure Sentinel environment.
24/7 Security Operations-as-a-Service
What’s more, customers are looking to consolidate service providers and vendor solutions, as well as to reduce cloud consumption. The BlueVoyant Modern SOC provides the flexibility and scalability enterprises require—and does the heavy lifting for them—operationalizing and managing security tools, continuously monitoring, investigating and rapidly remediating threats on their behalf—reducing costs and creating a security operations center of excellence.
Data Remains in Customer’s Azure Sentinel Environments
Data privacy regulations and enforcement continue to grow globally. Unlike other MSSP solutions, which require customers to send their raw log data to other clouds or traditional datacenters, BlueVoyant gives organizations peace of mind knowing that with the BlueVoyant Modern SOC, customer data remains in their own Azure Sentinel environments; thereby securing mission critical data and assets, reducing costs and increasing compliance.
“Endpoint-centric detection and response solutions alone do not provide the visibility and response capabilities required to identify and neutralize increasingly broad and sophisticated attacks,” comments Milan Patel, Global Head of Managed Security Services at BlueVoyant. “We’ve solved this challenge with the BlueVoyant Modern SOC. Developed in partnership with Microsoft, the BlueVoyant Modern SOC is unique in the market and gives Microsoft users an end-to-end portfolio of consulting, implementation and Managed Services that unites our MDR solution with Microsoft Azure Sentinel and extended detection and response, to deliver true security operations-as a-service,” adds Patel.
