Blackpoint Cyber Introduces MDR Add-On Solution

Blackpoint Cyber, a managed detection and response (MDR) services provider, has announced the Blackpoint Logging with Integrated Compliance (LogIC) add-on solution.

LogIC is a self-service web application that lets end-users manage and customize all aspects of event and log collection, Blackpoint noted. It is designed to help MSSPs, MSPs and their customers satisfy compliance requirements.

LogIC lets users collect Windows Event Logs, Windows File Integrity Monitoring (FIM) and applications supporting general system logging protocol (syslog) in real time, Blackpoint said. All data collected with LogIC is tamperproof, resilient, encrypted (AES-256) and stored read-only in three different zones in accordance with various security mandates.

In addition, LogIC provides an intelligent auto-answer capability to provide answers or justifications relating to compliance standard requirements and controls, Blackpoint stated. It also allows users to export a compliance report for audits and assessments.

LogIC supports and maps to PCI-DSS, HIPAA, NIST 800-171 and CMMC (up to level 3) compliance frameworks. Blackpoint said it plans to add more frameworks for future iterations of LogIC throughout 2021 and 2022.
