Cyber Operations Centre Deal Struck Between ArcSight and SAIC

ArcSight : 09 June, 2010  (Company News)
SAIC and ArcSight to combine skills in risk management consulting and enterprise threat mitigation under one roof through the companies' Cyber Security Operations Centre
ArcSight has announced a joint marketing agreement with Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC) to combine ArcSight products with SAIC Services to provide customers, worldwide, a unique turnkey Cyber Security Operations Center (SOC) Solution.

ArcSight and SAIC are teaming to help mitigate potential gaps in the market for enterprise threat and risk within critical infrastructure organizations. Organizations have chosen to build on-premise SOCs, but many lack the expertise needed to build an effective, robust centre on their own. The expertise of SAIC information security experts, institutional knowledge, and managed security services (MSS) experience combined with the ArcSight SIEM platform and services, give customers superior resources to build and maintain a SOC.

SAIC is a scientific, engineering, and technology applications company that solves problems of vital importance to the nation and the world, in national security, energy and the environment, critical infrastructure, and health. With over 45,000 employees, SAIC serves customers in the US Department of Defence, the intelligence community, the US Department of Homeland Security, other US Government civil agencies and selected commercial markets.

"The ArcSight Enterprise Threat and Risk Management platform has given our MSS operations vital insight necessary to help protect our clients against cyber-threats and help manage risk and the joint marketing solution will make that available to those with stand-alone SOC needs," said SAIC vice president and director of MSS, Thomas Lyden. "Through this joint SOC solution, we give customers a single place to go to get the support needed to enhance their operational information assurance processes and procedures within an existing SOC, or build a successful centre from the ground up."

'As a valuable collaborator and a customer, SAIC has a deep understanding of ArcSight and its solutions,' said Ray Patterson, CPA, vice president, professional services, ArcSight. 'The joint marketing solution with SAIC is a natural extension of our relationship in which we expect to use the ArcSight technology platform, along with SAIC's services and market expertise, to deliver a turnkey on-premise SOC to a global customer base."

For additional information, ArcSight and SAIC will host a webinar titled 21st Century SOCs - Is it Time to Consider Outsourcing Your SOC? on Wednesday, June 23 at 10:00 am PT. Experts from both companies will explore the options and challenges organizations face when launching a security operations centre. Additionally, ArcSight and SAIC will outline the mechanics of the SOC, what to consider when choosing to make it in-house or to outsource it and what should be discussed with the vendor if an organization outsources a SOC.
