Proficio's ProSOC Express Brings Enterprise-Class IT Security to the SMB Market Starting at $99 per Device per Month

CARLSBAD, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 14, 2015) - Proficio, a leading provider of cloud-based security services, today introduced ProSOC Express, providing small and medium-sized businesses 24x7 enterprise-class security monitoring and alerting services. ProSOC Express is offered as a highly affordable SaaS subscription service and includes the same advanced SIEM technology and 24x7 expert monitoring as Proficio provides its enterprise customers.

"Data breaches are a huge concern for every organization now, and mid-size organizations are particularly at risk," said Eric Ogren, analyst at the Ogren Group. "But most midsize businesses cannot afford to build internal security teams or purchase and manage advanced security capabilities and should be looking at managed services to cost effectively deliver enterprise-grade security. Proficio's ProSOC Express is a clear example of the type of cloud-based security solution that mid-size firms should be evaluating."

"When it comes to protecting their business from cyber crimes, mid-sized businesses face similar challenges as large enterprises," said Sanjeev Aggarwal, Founder and Partner, SMB Group. "The rise of sophisticated new security attacks poses a clear risk to SMBs challenged with limited and generalist IT staff and budget resources. They cannot afford to build internal security teams or purchase and administer advanced security software tools, and should evaluate cloud-based options."

"Cyber criminals view mid-sized organizations as soft targets for data theft, bank fraud, and ransomware," said Tim McElwee, COO and Chairman, Proficio, Inc. "While businesses often have the right tools to help identify attacks, they seldom have time to analyze firewall logs or investigate suspicious activity and as a consequence security breaches are often only discovered after the damage is done. With ProSOC Express, our goal is to offer similar security monitoring and breach prevention services as we provide our enterprise customers, but as a simplified service offering and at a very affordable price."

Cloud-based Breach Prevention

Delivered as a subscription service, ProSOC Express works with customers' existing systems including firewalls, anti-virus software and servers, and does not require customers to purchase any software or hardware to use the service. ProSOC Express includes the following capabilities:

  • 24x7 security monitoring and threat detection
  • Real time analysis and correlation of security events using cloud-based HP ArcSight SIEM technology
  • 24x7 security alerts and escalation for critical events requiring action
  • Security experts available to address your questions
  • Threat intelligence and reputation service
  • 12 months of log storage to meet compliance requirements
  • Easy to understand weekly reports that summarize activity
  • 30 Day Money Back Guarantee

Affordable Service Model

Customers can try ProSOC Express for as little as $99 per month per device. A bundle of 15 devices is available for $9,950 per year. ProSOC Express is also offered with options:

  • ProSOC Express Healthcare -- includes HIPAA Reporting
