April 30: Setting up a modern observability stack with Garland Technology, Corelight, and Humio

Vijilan’s cybersecurity monitoring-as-a-service detects threats in real time with Humio

February 20th, 2020

At the forefront of cyberdefense you’ll find a group of individuals who aren’t as visible outside of IT circles. These are SOC (Security Operations Center) professionals, the trained cybersecurity experts who actively watch networks 24 hours a day, 365 days a year. They are the last line of defense when hackers have broken through static defense systems like firewalls and antivirus software.

Unfortunately for many organizations, SOC operations are considerable investments that can involve hundreds of thousands of dollars or more in upfront costs. Add to this the fact that the volume, variety, and velocity of data that must be monitored is increasing exponentially, and the prospect of finding skilled and experienced professionals to staff a SOC becomes an even greater challenge.

Enter Vijilan Security, a U.S.-based cybersecurity firm that specializes in cybersecurity monitoring services. Vijilan gives IT managed services providers (MSP) a way to offer affordable, end-to-end SOC monitoring solutions to businesses of any size. Through their partnership model, MSPs avoid the capital expenses of establishing an in-house SOC and can get to market faster with an industry-leading cybersecurity protection service.

Providing end-to-end SOC services for multiple organizations comes with every-increasing log management needs because the volume and variety of data generated by IT networks is growing at an exponential rate. More than 90% of the data ever generated has been created within the last two years, and traditional tools simply can’t keep up.

“We are living in a world where digital information is being generated at an immense volume.”

Kevin Nejad, Vijilan CEO

A leader and innovator in cybersecurity since 2014, Vijilan set out to meet this challenge with a solution that best prepared them for the future. They chose Humio’s future-forward, powerful analytics platform because it best equipped them to sort through, process, and store this increasing flow of information. Perhaps more importantly, Humio’s real-time access allows Vijilan’s data scientists to detect, predict, and prevent cybersecurity events with precision, and respond before damage multiplies.

”With the right tools, we can collect and analyze the scale of data streams coming from so many different network points at increasing velocity. However, that’s only half the challenge. Knowing what types of information to collect, how to analyze it for common and emerging threats — that is an art, and here at Vijilan, we are masters of this craft.”

Kevin Nejad, Vijilan CEO

The effects of the Humio-powered cloud security engine are felt by all of Vijilan’s clients. Faster response times lead to overall tighter data security. With the potential costs and damages of a cybersecurity breach so staggering, Vijilan takes their performance very seriously. For Vijilan, Humio’s technology is a game-changing cybersecurity tool.
