MSSP RedLegg Launches Watchtower Cybersecurity Case Management Platform

MSSP RedLegg has launched the Watchtower case management platform to help its security analysts identify and address customer security risks.

Watchtower empowers RedLegg security analysts to detect cyber risks in customer security information and event management (SIEM) deployments, according to a prepared statement.

RedLegg security analysts can use Watchtower to manage, investigate and contextualize security intelligence in live customer environments, the company stated. They also can leverage Watchtower to collect security information and monitor cyber risks to identify cyber threats across both customer environments and industries.

Key features of Watchtower include:

  • Case Management:  Correlates security tasks and alerts into a single investigated case.
  • Malware Sandboxing: Forwards malicious files and IPs and ensures they are destroyed safely in a sandbox environment.
  • Standardized Workflows: Automatically presents tasks and workflows to RedLegg security analysts when new cases are created.
  • Threat Analysis: Features built-in automated and on-demand analyzers that allow RedLegg security analysts to gather security information and intelligence.

Watchtower is now available to RedLegg managed security services customers.
