Arctic Wolf- Join the pack

Written by: Jon Moore

With Arctic Wolf we can offer you services that are currently processing more than two trillion security events and 2.5 Petabytes of data per week

London, October 2022 – Ransomware, Cybersecurity, breach, stolen records…it sounds like a broken record, and we think that Arctic Wolf may have a refreshing approach to this increasing risk for businesses, which is needed because our current approach often falls short.

  • In 2021, a business fell victim to ransomware every 11 seconds
  • Currently it takes on average 208 days to identify a data breach
  • By 2023 it is estimated that cybercriminals will steal 33 billion records from businesses

You won’t be alone if your team has very limited or no dedicated security (analyst) resource during a time when this threat landscape is growing. It is also not unusual to have a downpour of alerts and notifications from the tools you have in place making it a challenge to keep on top of the false positives and identify the priority in the hundreds of messages created daily. This is also happening 24x7x365 no matter what the working patterns of your team.

Arctic Wolf is not a name that many of you will link to Cybersecurity. But with nearly 2,000 employees, and over 4,000 customers that have increased their footprint somewhat since launching in 2012, its time you knew about one of security’s best kept secrets. What makes them different is the way they process your data (using the knowledge gained across the rest of their customer base), their ability to work with the toolsets you already have in place (so you don’t have to lose the value of the tools that you have already invested in) and the most refreshing of the bunch, Concierge Delivered Security Operations. Yes, you heard me right, just like the person at the front desk of the hotel, each Arctic wolf customer has two named engineers aligned with them. They will know the issues, and your business, inside out and ensure that the alerts that you get are actionable (and by the way, most Arctic wolf customers get less than 1 real threat messages to deal with a day). They become an extension to your team.

Arctic Wolf’s Security Operations cloud is more than just an eSOC and runs around 3 services:

Managed Detection and Response (MDR) – defending against advance threats that bypass normal prevention tools and providing a more holistic approach across your users and infrastructure.

Managed Risk – Identify your digital risk posture and proactively highlight the gaps and best practices to follow in risk priority to continually improve your posture over time with a risk-based approach.

Managed Security Awareness – Up to 80% of breaches are a result of an employee’s actions, so education of employees is an important step behind this, with the addition of timeliness (don’t play the same videos that we created 2 years ago, make them relevant for todays threat) and benchmarking, highlighting employees that fall behind on topics and offer them alternative material to reinforce the message.

Why not book a workshop session with ET Works to explore your security services in more detail? With Arctic Wolf we can offer you services that are currently processing more than two trillion security events and 2.5 Petabytes of data per week so that its customers only have to deal with 99.9% True positives, one view into their entire security operation….oh and 1 triaged ticket per day or less.
