Arctic Wolf Networks Named a Cool Vendor in Security for Midsize Enterprises by Gartner


Analyst Firm Recognizes AWN CyberSOC™ for Addressing Security Challenges of Midsize Enterprises

SUNNYVALE, CA -- June 12, 2018— Arctic Wolf Networks, a leading security operations center (SOC)-as-a-service company, today announced its inclusion in Gartner’s June 2018 Cool Vendors in Security for Midsize Enterprises report for its AWN CyberSOC™ solution.

The AWN CyberSOC is a distributed, cloud-based security operations center (SOC) available as a subscription service. Threat monitoring begins as soon as the pre-configured sensor is placed in your network and provides end-to-end security with a dynamic combination of world-class Concierge Security Engineers (CSEs), advanced machine learning, and comprehensive, up-to-the-minute threat intelligence.

The report highlights the challenges midsize enterprises have and observes, “established mainstream vendors typically struggle to engage directly with MSEs, and/or provide products that are rightsized and affordable for them. As emerging and smaller vendors disrupt security markets with innovative products and approaches, MSE IT leaders find that some of their products align better with their economic and operational environment.”

“We believe being recognized as a Cool Vendor by Gartner is an honor and feel it validates our belief that companies with limited IT and security budgets are best served by a dedicated team of security experts,” said Brian NeSmith, CEO and co-founder of Arctic Wolf Networks. “Our unique solution with a designated Concierge Security Engineer™ delivers a white glove experience to companies who do not have the staff or resources to build a security operations center internally.”

The annual Cool Vendor reports evaluate emerging vendors that provide innovative technologies. According to Gartner, the cool vendors in security for midsize enterprises “offer a compelling combination of innovation and midsize enterprise suitability.”
