Solutionary Announces Enhancements to ActiveGuard(R) MSSP Security and Compliance Platform

Latest Version Provides Customers With Increased Flexibility, Greater Visibility Into Their IT Environments, and Simplified Vulnerability and PCI DSS Management

OMAHA, NE -- (Marketwired) -- 10/24/13 -- Solutionary, the leading pure-play managed security service provider (MSSP), today announced that it has enhanced its patented, cloud-based ActiveGuard® Security and Compliance Platform. This latest version features an enhanced portal interface, vulnerability scanning service, and user-managed reference-list functionality. Clients can now customize their user experience, streamline vulnerability and Payment Card Industry Data Security Standard (PCI DSS) management processes, and improve their security-event management processes to better support their internal security and compliance requirements.

This latest release gives clients increased visibility into their IT environments, improved threat intelligence and full vulnerability lifecycle management that allows them to reduce security risks across their organizations while saving them valuable time. Added features and enhancements include:

  • Integrated Reference Lists: User-managed reference lists can now be combined with Solutionary reference lists, allowing clients to incorporate their own specific requirements and data sources into the ActiveGuard security-event processing stream, giving them additional rule-customization options.
  • Improved Process Control: Updates to the vulnerability scanning service give clients more-efficient process control for their Payment Card Industry (PCI) Approved Scanning Vendor (ASV) scans. From the on-boarding process through vulnerability attestation and workflow management to the required ASV documentation, the PCI-compliant workflow is now faster and more efficient.
  • Enhanced Vulnerability Lifecycle Management: Proprietary scan-data perspectives, event statuses and workflow dispositions allow clients to view, manage and remediate internal scan data in a PCI-compliant manner with full user-customizable dashboards.
  • Added Flexibility: Redesigned portal interface provides clients with increased control and improved usability along with customizable scanning and reporting.

"Enterprises are under constant attack from advanced persistent threats (APTs), nation-states and bad actors, leaving them vulnerable to advanced threats and data breaches that inflict brand and financial damage," said Don Gray, chief security strategist. "Since ActiveGuard monitored its first clients in 2000, we have continually enhanced the platform to protect clients 24/7 and to give them access to new tools, features and capabilities that keep them protected against an ever-changing threat landscape. "

The ActiveGuard platform was purpose-built as an MSSP platform, designed from the outset to provide multi-tenant managed security services for Solutionary clients, and has been awarded seven patents. ActiveGuard is able to accurately collect and correlate vast amounts of data from virtually any device capable of producing a log file, such as applications, databases, endpoints, firewalls, intrusion detection and prevention systems (IDS/IPS), unified threat managers (UTMs), web application firewalls (WAFs), file integrity monitoring (FIMs) and network devices. To detect threats and increase accuracy, ActiveGuard enriches gathered security data with a variety of contextual information such as vulnerabilities, assets, IP geolocation (GeoIP), malicious hosts, and privileged and non-privileged users. Advanced analytics and multiple detection methods, including signatures, anomaly detection, statistical analysis, heuristics and global threat intelligence from the Solutionary Security Engineering Research Team (SERT), help ActiveGuard detect today's advanced threats, such as APTs.

The precious oil is extracted from the seeds of prickly pear cactus plant. After taking out the seeds from the fruits, they are adequately dried and then cold pressed to obtain the oil. Indeed, the prickly seed oil is quite expensive. Well, that is understandable when you consider the fact that the seeds are really tiny and each seed contain only about 5% of oil in it at most, plus the seeds are usually handpicked from the fruits. This means it will take tons of these seeds to produce just one bottle of the oil for commercial purpose. But from its medical properties to its culinary importance, skin lightening, moisturizing, and protection abilities, down to its extraordinary hair care properties, prickly seed oil has got lots of excellent rewards for anyone who pays the price.
