Hughes Network Systems, LLC, an EchoStar company (Nasdaq: SATS), has expanded their suite of managed cybersecurity services for distributed enterprises to include managed detection and response (MDR) and SOC as a service (SOCaaS).
The new offerings bring network security expertise from Hughes, plus the benefits of in-house, enterprise-grade protections, to small and mid-sized enterprises, tailored and scaled to address their needs.
Where large enterprises have in-house experts and even their own Security Operations Centers (SOCs) to help mitigate cyber threats, smaller businesses (those with up to 1,000 employees) can now access the same capabilities from Hughes. With the addition of MDR and SOCaaS, Hughes now offers a robust suite of managed security services to help prevent, detect, and respond to threats targeting the smaller enterprise.
The new Hughes MDR service protects enterprises from cybercriminals with proactive intervention, real-time incident response and active threat containment, both through automation and the attention of trained security professionals.
Through the SOCaaS offering, Hughes certified SOC analysts monitor and respond to threats to customer networks 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, bringing them the advantages of decades of network security experience from Hughes. With both services, SOC analysts oversee security information and event management (SIEM), and customers gain insight into their network security posture through a real-time dashboard.
“Small and medium-sized enterprises are at increasing risk of cyberattacks like phishing, malware and ransomware – just as large enterprises are – but they typically don’t have the in-house expertise to mitigate these threats,” said Dan Rasmussen, senior vice president, enterprise division, Hughes. “Built on our 50 years of managing our own networks and those of our commercial and government customers, our managed security services put enterprise-grade protection into the hands of smaller businesses.”
