Assura’s managed SIEM with the power of stellar Cyber OpenXDR. 

Experience the future of cyber defense — where Assura’s expert insights and Stellar Cyber’s innovative
technology converge to protect your organization like never before. Unlike network monitoring which only looks at performance, Assura’s managed SIEM identifies and protects against cyber threats 24/7/365. Bad actors don’t take time off from their attacks, so it’s critical you’re just as diligent with your defenses. We harness Artificial Intelligence (AI) backed by our experts with eyes on glass to hunt for and detect threats to ensure that actions are taken swiftly to mitigate any malicious activity—delivering rapid notifications of Service Level Agreements (SLA) for critical alerts. Searching for security monitoring and response services to stay compliant? Our SIEM affordably checks that box with packages to fit any budget.
