"Almost half of businesses (46%) report having cybersecurity breaches or attacks in the last 12 months."

As the headline shows above, all businesses regardless of size, face the challenge of cyber security breaches. The other staggering statistic is that if they have a data breach, it typically takes companies over six months to notice. Corporate cyber security now depends on 24/7 monitoring and response by professional security engineers, using specialised software tools and machine learning. Without that, any idea of security is an illusion.

The Solution

Faced with an increasing number of targeted cyber-attacks that can find their way around traditional antivirus protection, it is time for many businesses to upgrade their cyber security strategy to include a new layer of Managed Detection and Response (MDR), based on managed services from an expert Security Operations Centre (SOC). The SOC service needs to provide 24/7/365 monitoring, and rapid response when a serious threat is detected. And ideally, for UK end-users, the SOC should have a strong physical presence in the UK.

However, if a simple blanket approach is taken to the whole network, the cost of procuring these kinds of services may appear prohibitive for many organisations. One practical solution to this problem is to optimise the level of security within the network according to how critical each endpoint is. While 24/7 managed monitoring may be essential on some systems, the cost of that level of attention may be impossible to justify for a large number of laptops being used in the field. For these laptops, security may be sufficiently uprated by adding solutions that are less expensive, such as vulnerability scanning and management, and a layer of endpoint behavioural analysis based on machine learning. A total solution today needs to encompass and support these different use cases, in order to bring the latest techniques now to the points where they are most needed, within an affordable overall package of uprated measures.

The Titan Cybersecurity Centre has entered into an agreement with Alert Logic®, which has a UK-based SOC as well as a USA-based SOC, in order to distribute a modular portfolio of cybersecurity service packages via its resellers to end-users

Titan Cybersecurity Solution

These packages work alongside the end-user’s existing antivirus and other security products. This enables a very rapid deployment, avoids the need for any costly replacement project, and also retains the end-user’s freedom to replace the antivirus layer whenever that may become desirable.

Alert Logic® Essentials

Security for endpoints (servers, laptops, workstations): asset discovery, vulnerability analysis scanning, Alert Logic® Extended Endpoint protection, and more.

Alert Logic® Professional

For on-premise and cloud-based critical endpoints, such as servers, for example in production, back-office and e-commerce environments: MDR 24/7 threat monitoring with 15-minute response, as well as all the other services from Essentials

Alert Logic® Enterprise

For larger enterprise customers, an assigned security expert from the SOC, as an extension to the in-house team, with Threat Hunting, and all the other services in Professional. There is also an option of a Web Application Firewall (WAF).

"For resellers looking after their customers’ IT needs, there is an opportunity to deliver this new layer of security services in a simple and straightforward way"

Titan Cybersecurity Reseller

For resellers looking after their customers’ IT needs, there is an opportunity to deliver this new layer of security services in a simple and straightforward way - using standardised, packaged Alert Logic services, which are selected for resellers and distributed by Titan Data Solutions.

Titan Data Solutions can also provide different types of professional services to accompany the Alert Logic solutions, including penetration testing from independent SOCs and other types of training, reviews and consulting.

How does it work?

Titan Data Solutions resells the service packages through its resellers and MSPs. Other contracting structures can be arranged too, as may be required by the reseller. Titan Data Solutions has selected top quality SOC services and has taken care of the complex vendor contracts required.

The Alert Logic MDR Professional solution works as below

Titan Cybersecurity How it Works

AGENT PROGRAMS

Agent programs on systems communicate detailed activity to a central server. Network traffic is also monitored.

ACTIVITY DATA

Activity data is processed rapidly on the server, where a rules engine is used to determine suspicious activity and create necessary alerts in real time.

Security analysts

Security analysts in Alert Logic’s SOC receive potential incident information via a secure link and carry out analysis, triage and escalation. False positive threat identifications are removed. Latest intelligence about threats is used in the analysis.

high-severity threat

When a high-severity threat is established, escalation to the end-user takes place within a 15-minute window from the threat verification. Information and recommendations are supplied to the end-user about the threat identified, so that steps can be taken straightaway to avoid or mitigate damage.

Lower-severity

Lower-severity incidents and items for investigation are reported separately.

Alert Logic Threat Detection

For the cloud, Alert Logic solutions integrate with AWS and Azure cloud providers, to enable automatic asset discovery, data collection and other automation. Alert Logic has pre-approval from AWS to allow end-users to use the Alert Logic software for scanning, and all instance types can be scanned. Containers are supported.

"End-users which already have expensive MDR arrangements in place may be interested in the opportunity for cost-savings which can arise from a move to a more cost-optimised solution."

End-users with as few as 25 network nodes (servers, workstations and laptops) are likely to find the Alert Logic solutions appropriate. Small companies with important security requirements may find this type of approach just as compelling as mid-size companies and larger enterprise companies. In addition to normal cybersecurity planning, the end-user requirement to acquire this type of solution can be triggered by a recent cybersecurity breach, vulnerabilities that have been discovered, compliance and regulatory requirements, and cyber-insurance demands. Additionally, end-users which already have expensive MDR arrangements in place may be interested in the opportunity for cost-savings which can arise from a move to a more cost-optimised solution.

Protecting your Customers

Protecting the reseller’s customer relationship

Titan Data Solutions are ready to jump into conversations with the reseller and its end-user, with the permission of the reseller, to explain the SOC services and how they might be able to be put in place. Demonstrations and trials can be arranged. In this way Titan Data Solutions can take the hard work out of the sales process for the reseller, and look after technical discussions as required. When the customer decides to implement the solution, Titan Data Solutions can provide the professional services required for a complete project. The day-to-day end-user contact will be direct with the vendor’s SOC, for the provision of the contracted services. So, from the reseller’s point of view, once the sale is made, the implementation and support can be left to Titan Data Solutions and its vendors.

Titan Cybersecurity Centre

The Cybersecurity Centre at Titan Data Solutions is a completely new approach to adding value in the distribution of cybersecurity solutions. This approach includes sourcing, standardising and integrating independent SOC services into affordable, packaged solutions for volume distribution by general IT resellers, VARs and MSPs. The Titan Cybersecurity Centre absorbs the technical and legal complexity, in order to make simple, affordable and easily-deployable service-based solutions for general distribution.
