IS4IT and Exeon Analytics AG agree on service partnership
IS4IT expands security portfolio with Network Detection & Response Tool from Exeon Analytics
Media Release, 07/01/2021
IS4IT Group, a leading provider in the field of cyber security, and the Swiss security expert Exeon Analytics, based in Zurich, have entered into a joint service partnership. The company will provide service and support in Germany for Exeon. The two providers signed an agreement to this effect in June.
Local service partners are indispensable for the successful market launch of new security solutions, even in times of digitalization and home offices. Customers expect a contact partner who, in addition to professional and technical expertise, also knows the specifics and legal requirements of the respective country in detail. A wide range of sophisticated products from leading global manufacturers, qualified services and interlocking solution modules as well as a team of experienced employees are available within the IS4IT Group for total solutions in terms of security. The company offers security solutions for organizations in the area of critical infrastructures, for companies with increased security requirements and companies that cannot take any cyber risks for economic reasons. Whether on premise with operation by the company's own team or as managed security in IS4IT's Security Operation Center (SOC): security does not come off the shelf at IS4IT, but is customized for the customer.
The ExeonTrace Network Detection & Response (NDR) platform ensures cybersecurity in the network thanks to powerful artificial intelligence (AI) and proven algorithms. Suspicious behavior is automatically detected, allowing cyber threats to be addressed before damage is done. The NDR platform was developed by an experienced team of data scientists, machine learning experts, white hat hackers and network security specialists. The AI algorithms, developed at ETH Zurich, are based on more than ten years of academic research. ExeonTrace rounds out existing prevention solutions to create an automated, AI-driven network security system. Detected threats and alerts are fed back into existing systems (e.g. SIEM), enabling seamless workflows. In addition to expanding its portfolio by providing service and support to ExeonTrace customers, IS4IT plans to leverage the Swiss NDR platform for industry-specific offerings.
"With ExeonTrace, we want to address companies from the mechanical and plant engineering sector, among others, says Ronny Schubhart, Head of Information Security at IS4IT. Due to the convergence of operational technology (OT) and IT, companies are facing high risks, especially in production. Here, systematic network control using ExeonTrace's AI-based rule sets offers itself as a solution. ".
Gregor Erismann, CMO of Exeon Analytics AG, adds: "Of course, there are very specific reasons for using ExeonTrace in other industries as well: regulatory requirements in banking and insurance, protecting sensitive customer data in the healthcare system, or securing intellectual property in the pharmaceutical industry, to name a few. But we are also looking forward to systematically opening up the machinery and plant engineering sector together with IS4IT. ".
"When selecting a service partner to support our customers in Germany, experience with the implementation and operation of SIEM environments was of great importance to us in order to be able to guarantee sound professional support for our customers. As a provider of managed security solutions and operator of a Security Operation Center (SOC), IS4IT brings exactly this experience", Carola Hug, COO at Exeon Analytics AG, explains the decision for the IT company from Bavaria. "The support of customers from the area of critical infrastructure and the cooperation with companies from a wide range of industries prove the broad spectrum of necessary process expertise that IS4IT's employees bring with them. In addition, with several locations in Germany, IS4IT is well positioned when it comes to on-site support. "
