IGI CyberLabs has integrated its Nodeware vulnerability management solution with SOCSoter’s MSP-focused cybersecurity platform.
The backend connection enables joint users of both offerings to receive immediate assistance with vulnerabilities identified by Nodeware from SOCSoter’s security operations center.
The companies announced the new functionality in conjunction with the ASCII Group’s first MSP Success Summit of 2022, at which both are exhibiting. That event takes place today and tomorrow in Houston.
“Companies need to be able to respond as close to real-time as possible when an exploitable vulnerability is discovered in the infrastructure,” said Eric Pinto, senior director at SOCSoter, in a media statement. “Being able to respond to that vulnerability is essential in protecting against a breach—no matter the size of the company.”
Nodeware continuously searches PCs, servers, and Internet of Things devices, such as video surveillance cameras and edge computing appliances, for security weaknesses via a lightweight agent and without assistance from physical or virtual host hardware. The new link to SOCSoter’s platform, which combines managed detection and responses services, cloud monitoring, and endpoint protection, enables the system to report issues not only to network operation centers and MSP technicians but to SOCSoter as well for analysis and remediation.
“This integration will bring a powerful combination of cybersecurity solutions to the SMB market, which has been notoriously overlooked and underserved,” said Stuart Cohen, president of IGI CyberLabs, in prepared comments. “Our continuous scanning and immediate alerts combined with SOCSoter’s reporting functions and MSP knowledge will better serve organizations’ security needs.”
IGI CyberLabs is a division of Infinite Group Inc. (IGI) launched last June to market and support Nodeware. The company added functionality for detecting exposures to Log4j threats in January, shortly after Apache, the software maker responsible for the popular logging library, reported vulnerabilities capable of letting attackers execute code remotely on targeted devices.
Nodeware added support for multiple versions of Linux to its existing coverage of Windows and MacOS last November.
SOCSoter users have had the ability to ask Amazon’s Alexa virtual assistant for security status information since last May.
