Lightstream Debuts Managed Security Services Suite

By Tracey E. Schelmetic

One of the side-effects of the global COVID-19 pandemic is a fast-tracking of digital transformation. All over the world, organizations and individuals have had to turn to more technology for everything from work to school to entertainment and healthcare. Unfortunately, the criminals are also following the trends. In 2020, cyberattacks have spiked globally, with a recent Interpol assessment citing an alarming rate of attacks shifting from individuals and small businesses to major corporations, governments and critical infrastructure. This has underscored the need to better security for cloud-based solutions and networks.

Cloud security and managed services provider Lightstream offers full-service cloud and connectivity solutions to companies all over the world, with a primary focus on managed services for security, cloud and network, as well as cloud infrastructure implementation, security and support. Now, the company has announced the launch of Managed Security Services (MSS). The suite of managed-services solutions were designed to help organizations better manage risk by improving security outcomes and effectiveness while meeting compliance requirements for core, mobile and public-cloud infrastructures.

“Many businesses find themselves struggling due to changing global economic conditions,” said Rafal Los, vice president of security strategy at Lightstream, in a statement. “Budgets are under pressure, while security threats are increasing and talent is at a premium. This is the perfect time not to have to choose between investing in your business or investing in security. Lightstream’s unique approach maximizes cybersecurity investment by coupling decreased cost and complexity with improved effectiveness in a cost-effective, consumption-based model.”

Features of the new suite include:

Edge Defense. Management, operation, and maintenance of virtual and physical devices at the network edge.

Endpoint Defense. Prevention, detection, and automated security incident response at scale.

Access Defense. Secure Access Service Edge (SASE) platform delivering connectivity using a common cloud-based infrastructure.

Cloud Defense. Continuous monitoring, detection and incident response for public cloud.

For companies who need to determine their needs and the best options for them, Lightstream offers a Rapid Risk Profile assessment or Security and Compliance Insights workshop to baseline a customer's current security posture and compliance and assess security needs.
