Secuvant Announces Strategic Partnership with Arete

Source: Netsurion

(GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Secuvant, a leader in strategic managed security and risk advisory services, today announced significant enhancements to its high-touch white-glove managed security offerings via strategic partnership agreements with leading security service providers Netsurion and Arete IR. The combined partnerships supplement Secuvant’s best-in-class detection and response capabilities across its four tiers of event escalation: Continuous Monitoring, Event Analysis, Event Triage, and full-service Incident Response and Forensics.

The Netsurion partnership enhances Secuvant’s early event detection capabilities through Netsurion’s flagship Managed Threat Protection Platform, EventTracker, which combines endpoint protection, security information and event management (SIEM), vulnerability management, threat hunting, a 24/7 security operations center (SOC), and more into one centrally managed, fully integrated console. By partnering with Netsurion, Secuvant can provide clients with broader cybersecurity coverage, greater zero-time endpoint protection, and rapid threat detection and response. As detected events move into elevated threat status, Secuvant’s integration with global incident response leader Arete IR provides seamless escalation from traditional MDR event management to full Tier 4 Incident Response and Forensics.

“Secuvant’s strategic partnerships with Netsurion and Arete IR are game-changing; they are significant differentiators for Secuvant,” said Ryan Layton, founder, and CEO of Secuvant. “Too often, we see client teams struggling to work with disparate risk consultants, MDR providers, and incident-response firms. Secuvant brings all three components into one integrated risk service model, eliminating the confusion and hand-offs that often exist during escalated phases of crisis management.”

Partnerships with Netsurion and Arete IR are further evidence of Secuvant’s recent move to become a global leader in providing strategic, white-glove security services to targeted markets and industries globally. By leveraging such partnerships, Secuvant is able to more deeply engage in building stronger business relationships with clients and focus extensively on meaningful value-added security services that reduce risk.

Don Ainslie, EVP at Secuvant and former Global CSO for Big 4 consulting firm Deloitte commented, “Companies continue to struggle knowing how to address cyber risk. The challenges of addressing cyber risk can’t be adequately addressed by low-touch MDR providers that are only built for scale and quantity. Secuvant’s ‘Clear Path Forward’ services are tailor-made for companies committed down the path of addressing cyber risk and our partnerships with Netsurion and Arete IR only strengthen this position.”

“Netsurion is excited about the opportunities provided through our partnership with Secuvant,” said Guy Cunningham, SVP of Channel Sales and Alliances, Netsurion. “Their unique business model, combined with their world-class advisory board, provides them with extensive reach into organizations of all sizes. Cybersecurity continues to be one of the areas within an IT organization that requires dedicated, ongoing attention and expertise. Secuvant delivers on those requirements across both Risk Management and Threat Detection. We look forward to a long relationship.”

Jim Jaeger, Co-founder and President of Arete IR added, “Secuvant’s laser focus on values and their mission of providing a Clear Path Forward for the clients, employees, and causes was instrumental in attracting Arete IR to Secuvant. Additionally, we align with their philosophy of addressing Cyber risk first at the board and executive level thus establishing culture, buy-in, and governance across all departments within an organization. We believe Secuvant’s integration of Arete’s incident response methodologies into their MDR service will add significant assurance to Secuvant clients.”
