Proficio's ProSOC Express Recognized With MVP Award From Computer Technology Review

CARLSBAD, CA--(Marketwired - Jul 29, 2015) - Proficio, a leading provider of cloud-based security services, today announced that it has been selected by Computer Technology Review as winner of an MVP Award, recognizing leaders within the IT security space.

Proficio's ProSOC Express was reviewed and selected for the prestigious publication's 2015 Most Valuable Products list based on criteria such as solution effectiveness, innovation and usability. Providing small and medium-sized businesses with 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.

"Mid-sized and small businesses are not immune to cyberattacks and Proficio is filling a noticeable gap in SMB security," said Computer Technology Review Editor-in-Chief Kim Kay. "We consider ProSOC Express to be a valuable solution, helping those SMBs with limited resources meet today's data security challenges."

Computer Technology Review is a US-based news portal that has been covering the best of IT, specializing in storage, cloud computing, virtualization, data protection, security and leading edge innovation since 1980.

"Cyber criminals are clearly targeting mid-sized and small organizations for data theft, bank fraud, and ransomware, and we're thrilled that Computer Technology Review has validated our commitment to providing SMBs with a viable data security solution to address these threats," said Tim McElwee, COO and Chairman, Proficio, Inc. "ProSOC Express delivers 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."
