Your data is the lifeblood of your business. With data privacy now front and center globally and the costs of cloud consumption rapidly increasing, customers are asking their data stay within their environment.

While other MSSP require data to be sent to their infrastructure and data centers for analysis, BlueVoyant’s service allows you to keep your data in your own environment, reducing cost, and ensuring stronger compliance. 

BlueVoyant’s Modern SOC provides a complete portfolio of Microsoft security-focused services, including a customized deployment of Microsoft security tools, ongoing platform care and maintenance, and 24/7 security operations as a service. 

Why You Need the BlueVoyant Modern SOC

The exponential growth in remote employees and the acceleration of digital transformation initiatives have expanded the attack surface for all companies. Security teams that are already stretched struggle to cobble together integrated solutions consisting of technologies from multiple vendors, many of which were only designed to operate in legacy environments. Integration complexities, a lack of security resources that can force painful compromises, and unrelenting attacks from cyber criminals have made securing the organization a seemingly unattainable goal. Today’s sophisticated cyber attacks are no longer exclusive to endpoints. They are:

  • Multi-faceted and target identities, email, infrastructure, cloud platforms, servers, databases, and more.
  • Multi-faceted
  • More than just endpoint-centric detection and response solutions
  • Those alone don’t provide the visibility and response capabilities required to identify and neutralize broader attacks.

We believe a cloud-native, fully-integrated security solution is what makes the most sense to companies trying to operate safely in today’s dangerous, highly interconnected world. To bring our vision to life and to help our customers get the business and security outcomes they want, we have partnered closely with Microsoft and also made significant investments in people, processes, and technology. We can now offer customers:
