CyFlare Launches SOC in a Box for Channel Partners

CyFlare, an MSSP that provides monitor, detect and respond (MDR) and security operations center (SOC) services for value-added resellers (VARs), now offers an SOC in a Box security solution for channel partners.

SOC in a Box leverages the 100 Series Pulse appliance for remote monitoring and management (RMM), CyFlare said. Key features of SOC in a Box include:

  • Anomalous command, process and traffic detection.
  • Breach analytics.
  • Domain name service (DNS) tunnel, exploit and malware detection.
  • File sandboxing.
  • Network traffic analytics.

In addition, SOC in a Box can be deployed in minutes and offers built-in security controls to drive compliance with HIPAA, NIST and other industry mandates, according to CyFlare. It also enables channel partners to monitor network traffic flows, ingest security logs and receive executive security briefing reports that summarize the state of a customer's security program.

SOC in a Box ships pre-configured and can be implemented as an agent, container, virtual or physical appliance on standard x86 architecture, CyFlare noted. It can be deployed onto a server or inside VMware, kernel-based virtual machine (KVM) or as a Docker container.

CyFlare: Here's What Channel Partners Need to Know

CyFlare offers an SOC that enables channel partners to resell SOC services. The MSSP does not solicit customers directly or compete with channel partners; instead, CyFlare provides turnkey SOC services that channel partners can deliver to small and medium-sized businesses (SMBs) and enterprises.

For example, CyFlare in December announced a strategic partnership with antivirus solutions provider FFRI to deliver a managed security service to SMBs. CyFlare also partnered with Phoenix-based VAR Solution Synergy in November to provide security and infrastructure support to healthcare organizations across the United States.

CyFlare today offers a variety of managed security services, and these services include:

  • Endpoint threat monitoring and management.
  • File integrity monitoring.
  • Firewall management.
  • Penetration testing.
  • Vulnerability assessment.

The price of CyFlare's SOC services for channel partners starts at $500 per month. Furthermore, the company provides channel partners with access to security information and event management (SIEM) and other security technologies and a team of cybersecurity specialists.
