Additional Securonix Relationships

Securonix's growth investment comes after the company in November 2021 partnered with Microland, a digital transformation services company, to deliver a managed security operations center-as-a-service (SOCaaS) solution.

It also provides artificial intelligence-based security incident response and offers online monitoring and log management capabilities.
