Leaseweb wants to help its customers to better protect their IT infrastructure. To this end, the cloud and hosting services provider is expanding its range of managed security services with two new services from security specialist Northwave. These are services that, on the one hand, help protect systems and, on the other, search for vulnerabilities.

Leaseweb reports this today in an extensive report about its new offer. First of all, there is the SIEM SOC service, which offers Leaseweb customers the option of having their IT infrastructure monitored 24/7 by Northwave’s security experts. They can also have penetration tests carried out by Northwave to identify and remedy vulnerabilities in the security of their infrastructure.

24/7 system monitoring

From its Security Operation Center (SOC) in Nieuwegein, Northwave monitors the network, systems and security infrastructure of companies 24/7. Northwave’s experts use Security Incident & Event Management (SIEM) technology to spot suspicious traffic, identify possible hacks and respond quickly to security incidents. LeaseWeb customers can call on LeaseWeb’s knowledge and skills to monitor IT environments for threats and take immediate action where necessary.

To make things easier for customers, Leaseweb offers several packages. For example, customers can choose to have their system tested periodically, or once only, for safety. Northwave’s experts will look for vulnerabilities in the system. Leaseweb recommends measures on this basis.

Individually or as a bundle

Leaseweb’s two new managed security services can be purchased separately or in the form of a bundle. Organisations can have a penetration test carried out when they set up their infrastructure at Leaseweb and then leave the responsibility for monitoring the environment to Northwave. By opting for regular penetration tests, they can always stay one step ahead of security risks.

Both managed security services are available immediately and complement the range of security services, including DDoS IP Protection and Web Application Firewall.
