Bringing 24x7x365 global threat intelligence to local markets

Des Moines, Iowa – September 19, 2017 – LightEdge Solutions is expanding their Virtual Security Operations Center (vSOC) solution set to include the added the power of IBM’s QRadar Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) platform through a new partnership with CarbonHelix. IBM’s 5-year #1 Gartner ranked SIEM has never been available in such an easy to deploy, managed model for small, medium, and enterprise-size businesses to tap into.

LightEdge’s vSOC powered by QRadar is a 24x7x365 complete security solution enabling customers to outsource components of their network security to the industry’s top analysts and experts. QRadar, expertly deployed and operated by elite professionals with cybersecurity military backgrounds and high-level government clearance, will analyze log and network flow, monitor vulnerabilities, and track user and asset data though a single, integrated architecture.

vSOC powered by QRadar works as an overlay to the client’s existing security environment and aggregates log data and network activity for any number of device types or brands. With the added benefits that QRadar brings, the vSOC experts at CarbonHelix can now correlate this data in real time with global threat feeds to identify any anomalies and events that indicate potential intrusion, malware, or suspicious upload and download activity.

“Concerns about compromised security and data breaches have officially escalated to the boardroom as companies realize how critical a strong defense is to the survivability of every business,” says Jim Masterson, LightEdge Chief Executive Officer. “Even the most skilled IT teams do not have the resources to effectively monitor security systems around the clock, while also keeping a pulse on global threats. Our team at LightEdge understands how real these risks are, and are constantly evolving our security portfolio to keep our customers and their vital information secure.”
