IT Security specialist expands its offering with SecureWorks

Nebulas Solutions : 21 October, 2009  (New Product)
Nebulas now offers security and consulting services under the SecureWorks brand including monitoring and intrusion detection
Nebulas Solutions Group, the security, Virtualisation and acceleration specialist, is now offering clients managed security services from SecureWorks, one of the market's leading global, pure-play security services providers. SecureWorks protects over 2,600 clients worldwide, including more than ten percent of the Fortune 500.

Nebulas Solutions will offer SecureWorks' award winning security and consulting services in the EMEA region which include, among others:

• Management of Intrusion and Detection Prevention Systems
• Management of Network and Web Application Firewalls
• 24x7 Real-Time Security Monitoring
• Security Information and Event Management (SIEM)
• Log and Vulnerability Management
• Global Threat Research
• Risk Assessments, Compliance Audits and Governance and Policy Development

Depending on the service, organizations can choose from a fully-managed, co-managed, monitored or self-service delivery model. These flexible service levels meet the needs of global enterprises with large security teams, as well as smaller organisations, with no security expertise. Nebulas' customers will benefit from SecureWorks' Managed Security Services model which leverages its investments in security expertise, advanced technology and scalable processes to provide organizations with the most effective security solutions at a fraction of the cost it takes to build similar capabilities in house.

In addition to protecting an organisation's information assets and reducing costs, SecureWorks' services help companies improve their compliance, as they provide key controls for regulations including PCI, Sarbanes-Oxley, and the US specific HIPAA, NERC CIP and GLBA mandates.

Organisations can seamlessly demonstrate their adherence to industry regulations through an extensive assortment of pre-built compliance and security reports available through SecureWorks' secure web-based Portal. There is also an intuitive reporting wizard for generating tailored reports. The Portal streamlines the reporting process and facilitates secure distribution of compliance and security information to appropriate staff, auditors and management.

"This level of compliance monitoring and reporting is simply unachievable for most companies," said Nick Garlick, Managing Director for Nebulas Solutions. "Using SecureWorks' secure web Portal, IT departments can continuously monitor and report on their compliance and security status, enabling issues to be addressed immediately. This is a true cost and time savings. We are seeing the need for managed security services increase everyday as IT departments are being asked to do far more with less budget and manpower," continued Nick. "Many find managing ongoing tasks, with less manpower, a challenge, but this has been compounded by increasingly resource-hungry compliance obligations. Using a managed service can significantly reduce the routine monitoring and reporting tasks that IT departments have to undertake to meet these demands. This will free up resources to focus on activities which benefit the business more strategically. "

Nick is confident that offering security services will bring significant dividends.

"We are delighted to be SecureWorks' newest business partner," continued Nick. "They're a market leader and have won multiple industry awards. This relationship means that we can offer global organisations a depth and reach of service that previously wasn't possible for us. We can continue to provide the localised security expertise that our customers value, but now customers can have the peace of mind that we can extend the service globally, if they need it. As a result, our proposition will be very appealing to medium and large corporations."

Nebulas Solutions' move into managed services has already been welcomed by a number of their clients. Colin Miles, UK Corporate Network Manager at Virgin Media, is confident that the relationship with SecureWorks will bring benefits for everyone.

He explained: "Unlike many other managed security services providers, SecureWorks is a pure-play organisation: they don't do anything else but security, so they really understand customers' security needs and drivers. For me, it means that I have the potential of an enhanced service without having to change my local account team or source another partner. On this basis, it's a very attractive proposition for existing and future customers."

'Nebulas Solutions is one of the most highly regarded security solution providers in the UK," said Peter Heim, SecureWorks' Enterprise Sales Director-EMEA. "By combining Nebulas Solutions' expertise with SecureWorks' comprehensive and flexible services, global threat visibility, and renowned security threat research, Nebulas will be able to expand and enhance their offerings, thus providing more powerful and effective security services to their clients. We look forward to a strong relationship and further expanding our presence in the UK."
