Latisys Expands Threat and Compliance Management Services Suite

Alchemy Security's Virtual Security Operations Center and AlienVault's Unified Security Management Platform Underpins Latisys' Compliant IT Infrastructure Services Delivery Platform

ASHBURN, VA -- (Marketwired) -- 05/27/14 -- In response to increasing demand for highly secure and audit-ready IT infrastructure services, Latisys, a leading provider of hybrid cloud hosting and data center solutions, today announced a significant expansion to its suite of managed security and professional services designed to holistically address enterprise risk & compliance management challenges faced by organizations today.

Latisys has partnered with Alchemy Security, a leading information security solutions provider with recognized expertise in security information event management (SIEM) deployment and operations, to expand its suite of Threat and Compliance Management Services (TCMS).

Based on Alchemy's Virtual Security Operations Center (vSOC) and leveraging AlienVault's Unified Security Management platform and Open Threat Exchange (OTX), Latisys' TCMS suite forms the basis of a growing portfolio of managed security & compliance solutions designed to provide security controls to enterprises hosting their infrastructure on Latisys' unified Cloud-Enabled Systems Infrastructure (CESI) platform.

Latisys' TCMS establishes a critical consolidation point for an organization's security monitoring. It enables enterprises to continuously evaluate the risk profile of their IT assets by intelligently detecting, analyzing, prioritizing, and alerting on new and emerging threats and vulnerabilities as they arise, and it addresses other core components required for robust security strategies. Latisys' TCMS encompasses:

  • Real-Time Monitoring and Correlation
  • Threat Intelligence
  • File Integrity Monitoring
  • Vulnerability Scanning
  • Incident Management Support
  • Compliance Tracking and Reporting
  • Auditor Response Support
  • Network and Application Penetration Testing*
  • Web-application and source code reviews*
  • PCI DSS ASV scanning*
  • Compliance Gap Analysis*
  • Risk Assessments*
  • Policy Development*

According to Gartner, organizations are failing at early breach detection, with more than 70% of breaches going undetected by the breached organization.1 Traditional defense-in-depth approaches are simply not sufficient to detect targeted attacks leading enterprises to look towards holistic services providers for comprehensive threat & risk management solutions that understand the threat landscape and what to do about new and emerging threats.

"Leading service providers are growing their threat management capabilities as large and mid-size enterprises become increasingly targeted," said Wendy Nather, Research Director, Security, for 451 Research. "The new threat and compliance management services from Latisys -- based on Alchemy and AlienVault -- have a great advantage in that they support customer autonomy and privacy. The SIEM license ownership and logs stay with the customer, which is an important requirement for many organizations."

"Managing information security risk has become a critical factor in any company's success or failure," said Pete Stevenson, CEO of Latisys. "Malicious, sophisticated attacks are on the rise and their impact has become more serious and costly for organizations that lack adequate protection. Our enterprise customers depend on us to properly augment their risk management strategies, meet compliance requirements and optimize their business processes. That's part of serving as an extension of their team."

"Latisys recognizes the importance of offering and integrating a broad range of professional and managed security services that would be very difficult for a customer to cost-effectively replicate in their own environment," said Joe Bonnell, Founder & CEO of Alchemy Security. "It's really all about the right combination of tools, processes and people -- working seamlessly in a solution tailored to each client's unique security posture. By providing a comprehensive set of professional services and managed solutions required to fully meet their security and compliance objectives, Latisys' customers benefit from Alchemy's deep expertise in driving robust security solutions, while addressing the cost effective availability solutions that Latisys regularly provides their customers."

"AlienVault is recognized globally for its ability to provide real-time threat data and is an established solution for thousands of companies and government institutions," said Justin Endres, SVP Worldwide Sales at AlienVault. "Alchemy Security is a premier partner with a deep understanding of SIEM technologies. We are very pleased to have been selected by Alchemy as the exclusive provider of unified security management and crowd sourced threat intelligence to Latisys who is focused on providing customers with a holistic view of threats to their environment and the intelligence to rapidly respond."

Latisys' unified CESI platform is audited to ensure alignment with the physical controls and information security policies for key regulatory standards and government requirements including:

  • The Payment Card Industry (PCI) Data Security Standard (DSS) 2.0
  • The Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA) report for physical controls
  • The Gramm-Leach-Bliley Act (GLBA) -- otherwise known as the Financial Services Modernization Act of 1999

Overall, nearly 1,000 enterprises and government organizations rely on Latisys as their trusted provider of critical IT infrastructure solutions underpinning their business. With a Net Promoter score of 46, Latisys leads the IaaS industry in customer satisfaction.

The essence of data analysis involves setting up data pipelines that consist of several operations that are chained together – starting from data collection, data quality checks, data integration, data analysis and data visualization (including the setting up of interaction paths in that visualization). In our opinion, the challenges stem from the technology diversity at each stage of the data pipeline as well as the lack of process around the analysis.
