Lumu Debuts SecOps “Lite” Platform for MSPs

Digital cybersecurity and network protection

Lumu, whose security operations (SecOps) technology helps organizations identify and isolate network compromises, has unwrapped a “lite” version specifically for managed service providers (MSPs).

Lumu for MSPs Lite is a streamlined, no-cost platform aimed at enabling MSPs to extend their SecOps capabilities to their clients, harnessing their existing human and technological proficiencies.

Lumu is debuting the service at the IT Nation Connect conference this week in Orlando, Florida.

Lumu's New Self-Service Capability

Additionally, Lumu has launched a new self-service capability that enables technology service providers (TSPs) to go beyond the restrictions of Lumu for MSPs Lite based on their business needs. With this new capability, MSPs can operate cybersecurity independently and have the ability to pay online, add clients and change Lumu tiers without assistance.

"Over the past few years, security technology has made significant strides," said Ricardo Villadiego, founder and chief executive of Lumu. "Lumu for MSPs Lite harnesses these innovations, providing technology service providers (TSPs) with a practical means to effortlessly enhance their SecOps capabilities, meeting their clients' security needs without the necessity for additional talent or resources."

He added that Lumi is empowering TSPs to automate tasks that were have been either outsourced or labor-intensive, thus unlocking their full growth potential.

"There are absolutely no drawbacks of using the platform to identify and respond to threats and the best part is it comes at no cost to the business," he said.

The platform is free for up to three customers or 50 endpoints. Lumu for MSPs Lite gives MSPs access to proficient cybersecurity operations including:

  • High-quality alerting and simple operability
  • Full network visibility about malicious activity happening in real time
  • Faster incident response via automation
  • Integrations to make the most of existing tools and resources

Lumu Lands Funding Round

In late September, Lumu said it had landed some $30 million in Series B funding, $6 million of which is debt. At the time, Villadiego said that the capital infusion would go to expanding the company’s U.S. sales force, refining its go-to-market strategy and underwriting its research and development costs.

The company’s strategy is to engage with security teams with limited resources but which must still deal with a challenging threat landscape.
