PRNewswire - Strategic AlienVault MSSP Partner Vertek Gains Momentum

COLCHESTER, Vt., May 9, 2017 /PRNewswire/ — Vertek, a leading Vermont-based solutions and security provider, is gaining momentum as a strategic AlienVault Managed Security Services Provider (MSSP) partner. With a proprietary Cloud Collector Platform, and custom development capabilities included in their approach, Vertek adds a layer of differentiation that most MSSPs competing in this space don’t offer.

Vertek’s Cloud Collector Platform aggregates disparate security and event log sources from cloud-based platforms into a single pane of glass. Current clients, as well as new clients, will benefit by outsourcing their continuous network monitoring and cyber-threat detection with Vertek’s Managed Threat Intelligence solution. Clients will also gain exposure to other Vertek solutions such as Business Process Outsourcing, Business Analytics and Consulting. Vertek has offices in VT and NJ, and has been serving organizations nationwide since 1988.

“As a business owner, I appreciate the peace of mind that comes from knowing that our and our customers’ systems and data are secure,” said Jim McCormick, founder of Vertek. “However, achieving that level of security is neither easy nor cheap for most businesses. We know that only too well from having been entrusted with our customers’ data for almost 3 decades. We really enjoy helping our clients secure their systems and network at a fraction of the cost if they were to attempt to do it themselves.”

Managed Threat Intelligence focuses on continuous monitoring and threat detection. In our experience, most businesses are not proficient in either,” said Ron Hruby, Director of Commercial Cybersecurity at Vertek. “As a previous IT Director of Vertek, I implemented the AlienVault technology into our own environment many years ago to meet evolving client security and reporting requirements, and layered on the monitoring and threat detection. A great deal of experience and the right mix of skills allow us to deliver the full benefits of AlienVault’s USM™ technology to our customers.”
