CSC Expands Suite of Cloud-Based Cybersecurity Offerings
News Release -- June 24, 2014
FALLS CHURCH, Va., June 24, 2014 -- CSC (NYSE: CSC) today announced the expansion of the company’s Cloud Cybersecurity Services portfolio with three enhanced offerings for clients that help protect CSC cloud solutions from the constantly evolving and escalating threat landscape.
As enterprise and public sector customers turn to next-generation cloud infrastructure-based services to maximize business and economic advantage, the need for effective security controls, regulatory compliance and risk mitigation have become increasingly important. Recent research by McKinsey and the World Economic Forum (The rising strategic risks of cyberattacks) found that companies are struggling with their capabilities in cyber risk management, with more than half of all respondents believing that cybersecurity is a strategic risk for their companies.
CSC Cloud Cybersecurity Services enable organizations to enhance the security of their cloud solutions from CSC. The suite of services and capabilities have been designed, built and integrated to meet the demands of a dynamic cloud business model, and provide a flexible, usage-based model that is integrated and aligned with CSC’s Managed Cybersecurity strategy. This allows both CSC self-service and managed cloud customers the flexibility and efficiency to apply more advanced levels of security functionality as the regulatory, compliance and security risk of the organization demands. CSC's enhanced Managed Cloud Cybersecurity Service integrated solutions are:
- Cloud Endpoint Protection (CEP) – Offers 7x24x365 monitoring and alerting for CSC cloud- based host protection. CEP is scalable and can be easily deployed into a cloud environment and infrastructure with the ability to dynamically add additional servers and hosts at any time. Innovative and industry-leading agentless Anti-Malware from Trend Micro Deep SecurityTM is included as baseline functionality, with agent-less or host based Intrusion Protection and File Integrity Monitoring also available to help satisfy regulatory demands.
- Cloud Managed Vulnerability Assessments (CMVA) – Provides centrally managed vulnerability scanning and configuration compliance monitoring for servers, Virtual Machines (VM’s) and cloud infrastructure. Vulnerability scanning is offered as a baseline functionality server configuration and compliance monitoring is also available as regulatory demands require. CSC leverages Tripwire® IP360™, to comprehensively profile designated network devices and include up-to-date coverage of the latest operating systems, applications, and vulnerabilities on the network. Tripwire IP360’s agentless architecture is designed for rapid deployment and ease of management across large, globally-distributed networks.
- Cloud Security Incident and Event Monitoring (CSIEM) – Comprises log collection, log storage, event correlation and security incident alerting and reporting on CSC cloud servers and VM's, supported by 7x24x365 SOC monitoring and alerting. In addition, CSC Cybersecurity's integrated Global Threat Intelligence (GTI) feeds the SIEM, to provide advance warnings of potential security threats and exploits impacting the cloud environment. CSC leverages HP Arcsight as the market leading SIEM platform for global SOC integration, to help customers overcome the evolving threat landscape with continuous real-time event monitoring across the cloud environment.
“Customers considering the adoption of public and private cloud solutions want to strengthen the protection of CSC cloud infrastructure offerings from the rapidly changing threat landscape,” said Samuel Visner, CSC’s vice president and general manager for Cybersecurity. “Our growing suite of Cloud Cybersecurity Services now offers both self-service and CSC cloud management customers a resilient framework of cloud security controls specifically built for the Virtual Computing Environment (VCE) coalition, available as OPEX services. This provides elasticity to support the dynamic business requirements that customers require on their premises or in the CSC data center environment.”
The CSC Cloud Cybersecurity Services portfolio offers As-a-Service solutions from the most efficient enterprise cloud security vendors to ease migration and transformation capabilities, which are uniquely designed for the cloud in a secure, reliable, transparent manner. The growing suite of services helps customers support and demonstrate regulatory compliance mandates (ISO27001, FISMA, NIST, HIPAA, PCI) against specific regulatory security controls. In addition, the Cloud Cybersecurity Services are managed and monitored from CSC's global Cybersecurity Operations Centers providing reach and scale where required. CSC’s layered architecture helps protect clients against malicious threats using industry recognized leading software, which is available in an agent-less deployment and delivers more efficient resource utilization and higher VM densities than traditional agent-based solutions.
