In-house security teams can face some difficult challenges keeping up with today’s constantly changing security landscape. Potential risks include phishing attacks, user errors, malicious insiders, and much more. Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) can extend the capabilities of in-house IT teams and provide the flexibility, expertise, and efficiencies in scale that organizations need to keep their environments secure 24/7.
Proficio was founded in 2010 with the goal of providing companies with the highest quality of 24/7 security monitoring and response services. Today Proficio provides hundreds of global customers managed security services from their security operation centers (SOCs) in California, Singapore and Spain.
Proficio invented the concept of SOC-as-a-Service to define their capabilities including delivering security event analysis, advanced threat detection, 24/7 monitoring, investigation and alerting, and incident response services. The company was founded with the goal of delivering a level of security defense equivalent in value to the in-house security operations of a Fortune 100 company, but at an affordable subscription fee. Proficio is a leader in Managed Detection and Response and was included in Gartner’s Market Guide for Managed Detection and Response Services for the third consecutive year.
