Global MSSP recognized as one of the world's most innovative cybersecurity players.
TORONTO, May 18, 2016 /CNW/ - Robert Herjavec, Founder & CEO of global Managed Security Services Provider Herjavec Group, announces that the firm has been ranked #2 on the Cybersecurity 500. This worldwide ranking, published by Cybersecurity Ventures, recognizes the most innovative companies in the cybersecurity space.
Herjavec Group has steadily climbed the Cybersecurity 500 over the last year, rising from #23 in 2015 to #10 in January 2016. Following the latest release of the ranking (May 17th 2016), Cybersecurity Ventures Founder, Steve Morgan, praised Herjavec Group's positioning and ability as a laser-focused, pure play security provider saying, "Herjavec Group has been accelerated to the #2 spot on the Cybersecurity 500 because the firm emphasizes the importance of data correlation and enrichment. Herjavec Group's Analytics Platform and its incredible technical talent are solving the industry's greatest challenge – a severe cybersecurity labour shortage."
Recognizing that security is not purely a technology issue, Herjavec Group's SOC 2 Type 2 certified Managed Security Services practice combines technical and human intelligence to defend enterprise level organizations from increasingly sophisticated, targeted cybercrime threats. Core Managed Services include Proactive Threat Detection (logging, correlation, & threat hunting) and Device Management (system health, moves/adds/changes & optimization). Herjavec Group's Managed Security Services practice relies on two custom built, and highly scalable technology pillars:
Herjavec Group Threat Framework - meaningful security use cases applied to the customer's onboarded technologies to proactively identify attacks and allow dynamic threat modelling.
Herjavec Group's Analytics Platform - alerts augmented using the Threat Framework are processed through the Analytics Platform, which automatically performs additional enriching functions including IP reputation look up, geo mapping, alert trending & deduplication, prior to preparing a readable output for Herjavec Group's security analysts to review and action accordingly.
"We've been in the business of amassing, logging and correlating large amounts of data for over a decade," said Herjavec Group Founder & CEO, Robert Herjavec. "There is magic to what we do in terms of enriching data in order to offer actionable intelligence to our customers. We've been able to scale our services to meet the needs of enterprises globally – first in Canada, then the United States, and now across the United Kingdom, Europe and Australia. To see our efforts recognized with a #2 global ranking is simply outstanding."
