KT Connections Announces Security Operations Center-as-a-Service in Partnership with Arctic Wolf

KT Connections

RAPID CITY, SOUTH DAKOTA – 2/16/18 – KT Connections has teamed with Arctic Wolf, a leading security operations center (SOC)-as-a-service company, to provide threat detection and response capabilities to protect against today’s advanced cyberattacks. AWN CyberSOC service provides an enterprise-class security operations center, the most essential element of any modern cybersecurity strategy. The service includes the expertise of experienced security engineers who manage all security matters using the full spectrum of advanced defense mechanisms for prevention, detection and response.

This new service supplements KT Connections’ current offering of security solutions, allowing them to offer improved cybersecurity to their client. This cybersecurity is a crucial part of any modern business’ IT, as there are more threats targeting small to medium-sized businesses every day. AWN CyberSOC service adds another level of comprehension to these services, allowing KT Connections’ clients to breathe that much easier.

“Arctic Wolf is delighted to partner with KT Connections and help them expand their product portfolio to offer a critical service that many of their customers are specifically requesting,” said Arctic Wolf’s Head of Sales Nick Schneider. “Cyberattacks now threaten companies of every size, and organizations are increasingly finding that the value and protection of a SOC-as-a-service makes sense for their cybersecurity.”

"KT Connections has been looking to provide Cyber-Security-as-a-Service for a few years, but no single solution addressed all the needs of the SMB business market, until Arctic Wolf Networks released their innovative solution incorporating an MSP partner program and integration with our internal tools, " said Rodd Ahrenstorff, a partner at KT Connections. "We evaluated solutions from several leading vendors, but ultimately chose Arctic Wolf Networks because it's a turnkey solution with a predictable pricing model, includes a concierge security engineer with tactical and strategic insight, and provides guided remediation advice for security incidents. We're excited to offer this critical layer of security, helping customers meet compliance mandates and improving their cyber security profile."

Arctic Wolf’s turnkey SOC-as-a-service is a dynamic combination of world-class security experts and advanced machine learning, working together to provide actionable cyberthreat information and identification. The AWN CyberSOC™ installs in minutes and provides value from day one. The service provides superior threat detection with fewer false positives, and includes:

  • Dedicated security expertise
  • 24/7 network monitoring
  • Managed threat detection
  • Security incident response and crisis support
  • Monthly external vulnerability assessments
  • Compliance reporting

With this addition, KT Connections are now able to offer a more complete range of IT services, spanning from security into the daily maintenance and management of business-critical systems.
