AWN CyberSOC™ Recognized for Setting the Bar for SOC-as-a-Service
SUNNYVALE, CA — April 19, 2018— Arctic Wolf Networks, a leading security operations center (SOC)-as-a-service company, announced today that its AWN CyberSOC™ was selected as the Best Small to Medium Enterprise (SME) Solution by SC Magazine. In its 22nd year, the annual SC Awards are the crowning achievement for security professionals and products in the cybersecurity industry.
“Arctic Wolf understands that every company is different. SMEs have the same cybersecurity needs as larger enterprises, yet often lack the budget and staff necessary for truly robust security operations,” said Brian NeSmith, co-founder and CEO at Arctic Wolf Networks. “This is why we are proud to have been won one of the most prestigious awards in our industry, further spreading awareness of SME’s current needs and validating that our AWN CyberSOC™ sets the industry standard for SOC-as-a-service.”
Every company needs a security operations center, but many do not have the expertise or budget to establish and maintain one internally. As a customizable, turnkey service, SOC-as-a-service is the best solution for these companies with varying operational needs. It provides companies with all the key elements needed for a strong cyber defense, including a SIEM and a team of security analysts, as well as all other technology required to deploy and operate. While there are many companies that offer SOC-as-a-service, Arctic Wolf’s CyberSOC™ is the industry’s only SOC-as-a-service that can be deployed in minutes without compromising large enterprise-class capabilities.
“Since last year’s SC Awards ceremony, the information security world has witnessed such key developments as the global WannaCry and NotPetya malware attacks, the discovery of vulnerabilities affecting billions of mobile devices and CPU chipsets, and the emergence of cryptocurrency miners as cybercriminals’ latest weapon of choice,” said Illena Armstrong, VP, editorial, SC Media. “As a winner in the Excellence Award category of the SC Awards, Arctic Wolf has demonstrated that they will be prepared for whatever new threats emerge in 2018 and beyond.”
The SC Award selection process was led by a panel of IT security experts from both the public and private sectors, who rigorously reviewed hundreds of applications and selected finalists in 31 categories. Winners were announced Tuesday, April 17, 2018 during the SC Awards Gala in San Francisco. The mission of the SC Awards is to honor the achievements of companies and cybersecurity professionals striving to safeguard their business’ and their customers’ critical data in North America.
