SolarWinds MSP has announced the launch of the SolarWinds Threat Monitoring Service Program, which builds upon the Scottsdale Arizona-based company’s Threat Monitor product, adding outsourced security operations center (SOC) services delivered through participating partners.
Threat Monitor is designed to help reduce the complexity of threat detection, leveraging automated threat detection, active response to security incidents, and audit-ready reports. The new program is designed to support MSPs who have purchased Threat Monitor, but prefer to partner with one of the SolarWinds Threat Monitoring Service Providers (TMSPs) to deliver managed security services to their customers.
“MSPs are already doing security basics on the protection front; however, they don’t necessarily want to become full MSSPs, even though there is a growing market demand for detection- and remediation-focused security,” stated Tim Brown, vice president of security at SolarWinds. “This is where the SolarWinds Threat Monitoring Service Program comes into play. It’s designed to give our customers the chance to partner with SolarWinds TMSPs to deliver the types of 24/7 SOC services that are becoming more paramount.”
Services to be delivered through the program include initial assessment and onboarding, deployment of Threat Monitor and 24/7 continuous monitoring and alerts, incident analysis, and remediation, when necessary. TMSPs are expected to meet a rigid set of criteria, including recognized certifications, such as CISSP and CEH, Threat Monitor product expertise, and MSP market experience.
Falanx Group of London and Secuvant of Salt Lake City serve as the program’s inaugural TMSPs.
With a rapidly evolving threat landscape, many MSPs are looking for new options in providing SOC services for companies of all sizes. SolarWinds Threat Monitoring Service is intended to provide a viable new option for that objective.
