Respond Software, innovators in robotic decision automation (RDA) for security operations, today announced it has entered into a new service and reseller partnership with CyberPeak Solutions, a leading managed services and risk management partner for cybersecurity solutions. With a reputation for delivering robust technical services and efficient engineering, CyberPeak enhances its technical prowess with the Respond Analyst, a virtual security analyst that uses RDA to deliver real-time, actionable security insights. With this partnership, CyberPeak is poised to deliver on the promise of intelligent automation in security operations with higher efficiency and faster results that lower risk.
“The Respond Analyst delivers the 24×7 cybersecurity monitoring and investigation that MSSPs need to confidently support the corrective and preventative services their customers expect,” said Mike Armistead, CEO and co-founder, Respond Software. “As a next-generation MSSP, CyberPeak leverages our intelligent automation for new efficiencies and better results to set a new benchmark for speed, consistency, and scale in cybersecurity monitoring. This opens up a strong competitive advantage for CyberPeak as they deliver upon their promise to the businesses they serve.”
CyberPeak – Return on Innovation from a Next-Generation MSSP
As cyberattacks become more sophisticated, organizations are forced to constantly upgrade security operations to stay ahead of potential incidents. The Respond Analyst provides a highly cost-effective and thorough way to analyze security-related alerts and data. In one example, CyberPeak used the Respond Analyst to monitor and investigate more than 104,000 events over just a few hours from a client’s Intrusion Prevention System (IPS) and web gateway. Today, CyberPeak can automate the capabilities of an expert Tier 1 security analyst, actively monitoring and triaging feeds from multiple sensors including IPS/IDS, web gateway/filtering, Endpoint Protection Platforms (EPP) and Endpoint Detection and Response (EDR) events in nearly real-time.
With the addition of the Respond Analyst, CyberPeak can now deliver the required perspective into security operations. The Respond Analyst is built with integrated reasoning – decision-making that leverages multiple sensors, contextual sources, and threat intelligence from the environment. This unique approach adds to its next-generation MSSP status, as CyberPeak can help customers maximize value from their investment in existing security tools, such as correlating additional information from Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) solutions.
“CyberPeak sees tremendous opportunity to help customers in the adoption of RDA to weed out the noise and better protect the network,” said Travis Abrams, founder and CEO of CyberPeak Solutions. “Adding the Respond Analyst into our managed services offering will bring powerful economies of speed, scalability, and intelligence to financial service operators that increasingly expect a rapid and measurable return on their technology investments. Early indicators have proven that we are equipped to build and showcase truly comprehensive, consistent, and reliable cybersecurity monitoring with the Respond Analyst and the future is bright.”
