Threat Stack Launches Oversight, a Managed Security Service for Companies on AWS

New Service Allows Companies to Expand the Capacity of Security and Ops Teams at a Fraction of the Cost

BOSTON – September 1, 2015 – Threat Stack, Inc., a cloud-native, continuous security monitoring solution for companies running on Amazon Web Services (AWS), today announced its new, hands-off security monitoring service, OversightSM. Built to serve all types of companies, from resource-strapped startups to major market leaders, Oversight streamlines deployment of an added layer of security with ongoing, off site, front-line support and manages priority issues and escalations, all without taxing internal security and ops teams. More than a dozen companies are already using the Oversight.

Companies using the Oversight service get unlimited access to Threat Stack Security Experts who deploy, configure, fine-tune, and manage continuous security monitoring. When Oversight identifies real threats, customers are alerted so they can verify and take action. This effectively eliminates the need for in-house monitoring and allows companies to run secure and compliant without sacrificing time and resources.

“As more and more companies run their businesses on AWS, continuous security monitoring has become a must-have vital measure against threats,” said Brian Ahern, Chairman and CEO, Threat Stack. “With our Oversight service, we’re not only protecting customer workloads, but removing the burden of managing the process, giving IT and ops teams back valuable time to grow their business.”

“We knew we wanted a continuous security monitoring solution but didn’t want to overtax our tech ops team, whose top priority was building out our product,” said Tony Deigh, Chief Technology Officer, Jobcase. “Threat Stack’s Oversight service just made sense for us – we get the best product along with expert service, without having to sacrifice internal attention away from higher priorities. Oversight also allows me to rest assured, knowing we have security monitoring in place that can help us keep our members’ data safe as we grow rapidly and introduce new services.”

How Oversight Works

Threat Stack’s Oversight team is comprised of experienced engineers, specialized in the needs of growth-driven companies running on AWS. Upon engagement, the team drives the initial setup, deployment, and configuration of monitoring agents to ensure immediate coverage against intrusions, data loss and operational inefficiencies. It then identifies and creates custom rule sets that sharpen the view and accuracy of alerts for each client. This level of monitoring also ensures reliable audit trails for compliance, instant knowledge of threats that require immediate attention, and clear visibility into the health and safety of customer workloads on AWS.

Following implementation, Oversight continues security management services and provides monthly client reviews. Ongoing services include adjusting rules and alerts to account for infrastructure changes and updating the system with the latest product and feature enhancements as they become available. For companies on track towards an IPO, Threat Stack Oversight provides a simple and easy path for getting businesses to reach SOX 404 compliance.
