New managed IT service makes it quick and easy for organizations to implement world-class security monitoring and threat response capabilities without intensive investment in hardware, software and staff.

URBANDALE, IOWA, October 15, 2018 — IP Pathways, an expert provider of IT solutions for organizations throughout the Midwest, has announced the launch of its new Unified Security Platform to help customer address heightened cybersecurity and compliance requirements.

The new service allows organizations to quickly and cost-effectively implement a managed Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) service, offering security monitoring and response capabilities to prevent and respond to Internet-borne attacks.

“Any organization with an Internet presence—be it a website, employees, partners or customers who access data via the web or stored in the cloud, or just use Internet-enabled devices—face constant and ever-increasing security threats,” explained Joe Shields, president of IP Pathways. “Organizations of all sizes must be vigilant about protecting themselves. But the challenge is the tremendous cost and ongoing resource needs required to set up, customize and manage a security program that can be effective and staffed 24x7x365. The costs of getting started and being ever-ready around-the-clock can be prohibitive.”

IP Pathways’ Unified Security Platform provides world-class monitoring and threat response capability for a monthly fee, allowing customers to avoid intense up-front and ongoing investment in hardware, software and staffing. Subscribing to the service provides customers with a virtual Security Operations Center (vSOC), a remote, fully-managed security operations center including 24x7x365 threat detection, behavioral monitoring and security intelligence. The service also includes vulnerability scanning, asset discovery and ongoing reporting and platform maintenance.

The new service can help organizations address a wide variety of compliance needs including HIPAA, NCUA, GDPR, FFEIC, NERC CIP, PCI-DSS, NIST Cybersecurity Framework, ISO 27000, SOX, FINRA and others.

“What we provide as a Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) is threat detection and compliance as a service,” added Shields. “We want to help customers eliminate risks associated with operating in an interconnected digital world, without prohibitive up-front and ongoing costs.”
