e2e-assure, a leading Security Operations Centre (SOC)-as-a-Service and Managed Detection and Response (MDR) provider, is launching a 24/7 protective monitoring service to maximise customers’ investments in Microsoft Sentinel. e2e-assure’s flexible service offering ranges from Sentinel consultancy and one-off set-up through to fully managing and integrating Sentinel with other tools to monitor and protect the customer environment.
“Organisations need a dedicated 24/7 SOC to get the most value from Sentinel’s cloud-based automated technology and protect themselves against cyber attacks,” said Rob Demain, CEO at e2e-assure. “We hold Microsoft Gold partnership status and have years of experience automating SOCs at scale as well as substantial Sentinel expertise. We’ve retrained all of our staff and increased our team headcount by 30% to ensure we’re unlocking the value of Sentinel for our customers.”
Customers benefit from e2e-assure’s own Network Detection and Response (NDR) service which is included in the service offering. Using existing e2e-assure proprietary appliances, on-premise network traffic and standard logs are analysed and seamlessly integrated with Sentinel via a data connector built by e2e-assure. ‘Honeynet’ deception technology is also deployed to detect early warning signs of an attack before it hits core infrastructure.
Demain continues: “We focus on the optimisation of service and Sentinel itself; our SOC takes a consultative approach with our customers to leverage all the great features of Sentinel that often remain out of reach without expert consulting and dedicated experts. We know how to help organisations to make cost savings – for example, through increased automation and by dispensing with licences for expensive, duplicate products that are no longer needed once we’ve onboarded Sentinel. We can spin up Sentinel for customers in a matter of hours, delivering extensive expertise and value-add to unlock the power of Sentinel, all optimised and monitored by our 24/7 fully outsourced or hybrid SOC.”
