Seceon Adds Cloud SIEM Capability for MSPs

6. Insecure Cloud Interface

Cybersecurity operations automation platform provider Seceon this week added a cloud SIEM (security information and event management) to its portfolio of offerings for MSPs and MSSPs. Called aiSIEM-CGuard, this new capability enables Seceon partners to protect their clouds without installing anything in-line or on-premises.

The new capability provides Seceon’s partners and customers with comprehensive protection, detection, and automatic remediation for cloud-powered resources, the company said. Seceon is also offering an automated signup process and what it says is margin-friendly pricing.

The new capability protects cloud workloads such as Microsoft 365 email, OneDrive, and endpoints and networks protected by cloud-based services such as SentinelOne, Microsoft Azure, Okta, Trend Micro, Cisco Secure Endpoint and more.

What aiSIEM-CGuard Offers MSPs

Seceon’s VP of Ecosystems, Amy Luby, told ChannelE2E that the company already had 10 partners who had signed up for the program as of January 23.

“We have priced it accordingly so that MSPs have a very easy way to secure their client’s cloud environments at a very affordable price point,” she said. “It can also be used as a tool for cross-sell / upsell. The MSP can assess their client’s security posture, deliver security score reporting and help define a road map to improve security posture.”

The new capability can also help with something else that has been top-of-mind for many MSPs and their end customers -- cyberinsurance, according to Luby.

“This is a super easy way for an MSP to step into SIEM prove SIEM-based protection for cyberinsurance requirements as well as upskilling their team without overwhelming them,” she said.

Seceon says that this new capability can be set up and configured in less than an hour. It provides a full SIEM-level log, event, and flow capture. The MSP/MSSP version can run on up to 50 users as a not-for-retail license program.

Channel veteran Luby joined Seceon in August 2023. She believes that MSPs are looking for platforms rather than point solutions for cybersecurity.

Seceon's Existing Cybersecurity for MSPs

Seceon announced its aiXDR-PMax solution in October 2023. This capability enables channel partners with comprehensive protection, detection, and automatic remediation of vulnerabilities, the company said. Seceon already provides a cybersecurity platform that augments and automates security operations services for MSPs and MSSPs, with an AI and ML-powered aiSIEM, aiXDR, and aiMSSP platform. The expanded platform includes EDR+EPP, file integrity monitoring, data control, data security, including PII and PHI monitoring, and continuous security posture monitoring, Seceon said in a statement.
