Paladion efficiently addresses a major security related concern of almost all businesses, i.e. speed. Be it time to anticipate a threat, time to detect a breach, or time to respond to threats and breaches, the company ensures that all of these actions are performed fast. Paladion’s consistent focus on speed is inspired by the belief that the only way to counter the growing cyber attacks is to increase the speed of security operations. Paladion makes it possible with its next generation of managed security based on the concept of “high speed cyber defense”. Their MDR service is a key offering of the company’s CyberActive portfolio. CyberActive depicts a combination of on-premise and cloud delivery and makes security operations and vulnerability management fast and more pro-active. Paladion also offers the same “high speed cyber defense” in a fully cloud delivered platform built on Microsoft Azure. “This is Paladion on demand which provides range of services from threat management, vulnerability management, PCI/NIST/ HIPAA, and other compliances in a highly scalable model,” adds Mohanty.
A case in point, here, is that of a global e-commerce company that needed a high speed cyber defense program to maximize its ROI with existing security technologies and enhance the detection
capabilities for advanced attacks. Paladion assisted the e-commerce company with its CyberActive SOC offering, which combines machine learning and human intelligence. The solution assured a significant business impact to the client along with 50 percent reduction in the time taken for incident analysis. Paladion has multiple other success stories in its list of projects where it has delivered outstanding outcomes. In its existence of over a decade, the company has garnered a vast client base consisting of 700 clients. However, in future, the company intends to focus on some new tangents of cyber security—autonomics and IoT device security. Mohanty elaborates, “On IoT security, we are building block chain based technology for device authentication, registration, and security analytics. We are building these platforms on Azure cloud for global delivery and scale.”CR
