Managed Security Services: BlueVoyant combines an expert team, advanced tools, robust threat data analytics, and comprehensive services and solutions to address the multiple cybersecurity needs of campaigns in three ways:

  1. Managed Detection and Response (MDR+): MDR+ detects, blocks, and contains malware, ransomware, zero-days, non-malware and fileless attacks automatically. Remote endpoint incident investigation and remediation is led by BlueVoyant cyber intelligence experts. Clients can let BlueVoyant remediate the issues remotely and supply after-action reports, or receive detailed instructions, if preferred.
  2. Detection-as-a-Service℠ (DaaS): DaaS collects logs from applications and on-premise and/or cloud infrastructure to enable advanced threat detection within the entire IT environment. Investigations into security alerts are supported by our team of analysts.
  3. Vulnerability Management Service (VMS): Services include implementation, scanning, configuration changes, as well as identification of high-risk vendor software updates.

Professional Services: For campaigns that require forensics, incident response, or proactive security services. World class defensive cybersecurity personnel respond to advanced cyber threats through programs that stop threat actors in their tracks. Assess, respond, and remediate cybersecurity events. In addition, BlueVoyant can rapidly assess companies’ current security posture and help make changes necessary to proactively defend themselves.

Threat Intelligence: For campaigns that require increased dark web and external threat intelligence insights. BlueVoyant monitors external attack surfaces, assesses emerging risks, and delivers near real-time, actionable intelligence that is specific to each organization.

“We are pleased and grateful for the support across the private sector to help amplify and promote DDC’s mission,” said Michael Kaiser DDC President and CEO. “Each of these companies – including BlueVoyant - understand the critical importance that securing campaigns plays in protecting our democracy and have demonstrated great generosity and thoughtfulness in how to best bring cybersecurity products into the complex campaign environment.”
