This month, novaSOC, a longstanding provider of cybersecurity solutions to MSPs and MSSPs, emerged as Pillr. In addition to unveiling a new brand, the company introduced its flagship product. It’s a web-based platform delivering a collaborative security operations model supported by a modern user experience that will translate to immediate value for SMBs and large enterprise IT teams struggling to keep up with mounting, increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks.
According to the company, the platform was developed “with a commitment to upleveling what’s possible in security operations for organizations of all sizes.” The company highlighted the adaptability of the platform, describing Pillr as a “cybersecurity operations solution designed and engineered to address the evolving demands of IT teams and service providers.”
Pillr integrates with over 450 cybersecurity services and tools and is supported by a 24/7/365 collaborative cybersecurity operations model. The company says it is seeking to push the boundaries of conventional cybersecurity messaging and visual standards.
“We want to deliver an end-to-end user experience that’s as dynamic as its users,” explained Pillr CMO Alexandra Matthiesen.
“Today, much of what you’ll encounter in the cybersecurity industry looks, sounds, and reads the same,” Matthiesen said. “There’s a lot of outdated imagery and language – think armor and birds of prey – and it’s often centered in overbold messaging that fails to align to actual human interests and needs. We want to cut the FUD and hyperbole, and we’re making it happen with Pillr, a brand that reflects the people and personalities of our users. Iit’s aware and dynamic, just like them, and it’s designed to be extensible across the entirety of their product experience.”
Pillr CSO, Adam Gray, added, “We are committed to advancing with our users – and being a driver for advancement in their cybersecurity programs; Pillr functionality and the on-platform experience is continually evolving to incorporate their current security needs, with an eye on the future.”
The company’s central partners also support the advancement of Pillr.
“Pillr has built a leading reputation for their impressive security technology with Pax8 partners,” said Nick Heddy, Chief Commerce Officer, Pax8, a cloud marketplace with expertise in cybersecurity. “We look forward to our continued partnership with Pillr to enable managed security providers to detect security vulnerabilities and suspicious activity so that we can keep SMBs protected from cyberattacks.”
The CEO of Pillr, Paul Anderson, added his enthusiasm for the community of Wichita, Kansas, where the company is headquartered. “As we expand what’s possible on Pillr, we’re simultaneously expanding our Pillr security operations team – an effort we hope will come to life in our growing Wichita headquarters. We are dedicated to shifting peoples’ perspectives on talent and where it’s found. Having been in this business for over 25 years, we see incredible untapped potential in Wichita.”
Pillr is a product of the Novacoast software development division, a team with over 20 years of experience engineering advanced cybersecurity solutions in a company with a 26-year history in the industry.
