The Silicon Review
“We empower enterprises to detect and stop all known and new cyber attacks.”
Despite huge amounts of money being spent on cyber security solutions, data breaches are happening at an increasing rate and greater severity. Today’s organizations are too slow to identify and stop cyber threats from inflicting damage once the organization is breached. They need a cost-effective solution that detects and stops threats before data is lost. In order to fill this gap, Seceon, a 2015-founded company came into being. Brainchild of Chandra Pandey, Seceon’s product is established as a cyber security advanced threat management platform that visualizes, detects, and eliminates threats in real time. It provides a simple, comprehensive, fully automated approach to detecting and stopping the threats that matter.
The company recognizes that current security technologies are built on a fundamental flaw – smart humans must use an array of complicated tools to identify a threat and then figure out how to stop it. Seceon has developed an approach that deploys analysis of all traffic, flows and processes in and out of the network and correlates them near-simultaneously with behavioral analytics, recognized and zero-day exploits and policies to surface threats and proposed responses in near-record real-time. Widely popular for rendering an affordable, comprehensive solution that detects, responds to and eliminates threats in real-time, Seceon is suitable for organizations of any size or security expertise, providing: A single application that identifies both known and zero-day threats, automated detection and response – which automatically detects and stops threats as they appear, while filtering out non-critical issues and human-independent operation –autonomously notifies staff of critical alerts, directs actions, or automates actions to contain the threat.
In just 24 months of its establishment, the company has reached a position where it stands tall. Seceon’s OTM platform, launched in April 2016, just 18 months after founding the company, provides the industry’s first and only fully-automated threat detection and remediation software system.
Seceon is headquartered in Westford, Massachusetts, a suburb of Boston, rich in technology, cyber security and venture funding heritage, with additional research and development staff located in Varanasi, India.
Rendezvous with Seceon’s’ OTM Platform
Powered by advanced data collection and analysis, machine learning and patent-pending predictive and behavioral analytics, Seceon’s OTM provides customers with a virtual security analyst at the ready. Automating the disjointed, time-consuming and complex tasks of threat monitoring, detection and elimination, Seceon OTM frees staff to address threats quickly without disrupting critical business processes. Anticipating attackers’ behavior choices, it enables organizations to see and stop the threats as they happen, preventing risk, damage or loss of valuable information.
By stopping attacks as they happen, Seceon OTM delivers immediate ROI. Companies save tens of millions of dollars typically spent addressing data loss, clean-up and customer mitigation issues. Seceon is singularly focused on enabling organizations to see cyber threats clearly and quickly, stop threats from inflicting extensive damage through surgical containment and elimination and to predict insider attacks through behavioral threat detection modeling and machine learning. To that end the company is developing software that can process massive amounts of data with real-time compute capacity. Seceon’s OTM is built on four patent-pending primary components—a control and collection engine (CCE), analytic and processing engine (APE), automated response and threat intelligence— that analyze hosts, network devices, application and user behavior to detect internal risks and cyber-threats, thus accelerating response, preventing damage and loss.
Grown from zero to 35 successful enterprise and managed service provider customer deployments—spanning the Fortune 500 to SMB businesses in the technology, healthcare and financial sectors—securing millions of devices, users and critical resources.
Launched commercial availability of its product in April 2016 and has been releasing one major release every quarter with improvements in machine learning, dynamic threat models, multi-tenancy and scaling.
Built an award-winning channel partner program, steadily building its network of 20+ U.S. and international distribution and reseller partners, including SonicWALL, Information Development Co. Ltd., JK Technosoft, Arrow and Aricent and several large managed security service partners, including Secure Designs Inc.
Grown revenue 50%, increased customers 100% each quarter and forecasting 1000% growth based on current demand generation for 2017.
Since its establishment in 2015, Seceon has carved a niche for itself in the industry in just two years. Widely applauded for introducing many firsts, Seceon delivered the industry’s first and only fully automated real-time threat detection and remediation system to detect, analyze and eliminate cyber-threats in the year 2016. Today, Seceon is established as the first company to provide:
An affordable “virtual security analyst” cyber security solution that automatically detects and stops all forms of cyber threats within minutes of the breach without human intervention.
A solution that deploys in any environment: private, hybrid or public cloud in under 4 hours with untrained staff and never needs rule updates or tuning.
This apart, Seceon offers uniqueness in its approach with the following factors:
The company can detect the traditional, as well as zero-day threats leveraging advanced data collection and analysis, machine learning, patent-pending predictive and behavioral analytics.
Its architecture can process billions of inputs and generate correlated outputs of all related threat behavior in seconds, improving threat detection while minimizing false positives, and reducing the number of threat activities to be analyzed.
It is fully automated, utilizing dynamic rule sets, meaning it will never need new rules to be added, to be tuned or monitored – analysis and reporting via text or email is conducted automatically.
It stops the threat. Dynamically writes rules to firewalls and switches to stop connectivity of compromised devices.
Hear it from their Clients
“Our customers are increasingly realizing they are at risk of being breached. It’s no longer a matter of if, but when,” said Ron Culler, CTO of Secure Designs Inc., premier MSSP for small and medium-sized businesses in the U.S.
“Seceon OTM provided us an immediate value proposition by correlating numerous threat events (normally requiring a great deal of time and effort from our security staff) and delivering alerts in real time, notifying us of a threat much earlier than the security services we were using. OTM is very easy to install, configure and operate.” – Kevin Stillman, CISO, SUNY.
The Client Spectrum
Targeting Fortune 500 to SMB customers in the technology, healthcare and financial sectors, Seceon recently started to target managed security service providers (MSSPs) serving the SMB community. Seceon’s OTM is available to customers in North America, EMEA and Asia-Pacific through its network of over 20 U.S. and international distribution and reseller partners.
The company takes pride in winning the trust of clients such as University of California Davis, State University of New York, SeaChange.
