Managed Security and Compliance Assistance Service Launched by Rackspace

Rackspace has launched a new Managed Security and Compliance Assistance service to help its customers protect business-critical processes, secure their data, mitigate cybersecurity threats and risks, and achieve their compliance objectives.

The new offerings help Rackspace develop holistic security solutions for its customers and ensure compliance in multi-cloud environments. The new offerings allows customers to benefit from the considerable experience of its security experts and implement multi-cloud security best practices, security monitoring, and threat analysis to ensure their environments are properly secured and resilient to cybersecurity threats.

The company provides onboarding consultation and deployment to deliver tailored solutions along with ongoing management of customers’ environments to ensure security threats are rapidly identified and remediated. The service helps customers prevent cyberattacks and reduce the potential impact of a cyberattack, while lowering the total cost of ownership of internal security operations centers and other managed service offerings.

The Managed Security offering has been developed to detect and respond to Advanced Persistent Threats (APTs) and other cyber threats and is tailored to the needs of each customer. It includes host and network protection, security analytics, vulnerability management, and threat intelligence.

The Compliance Assistance offering combines tooling and expertise to help its customer achieve and maintain compliance for their own environments. The service includes configuration hardening and monitoring, patch monitoring, user monitoring, and file integrity management.

By utilizing these services, customers with limited security expertise and budgets can ensure compliance for their multi-cloud environments and can spend their time focusing on their core business. The services have been developed with small to mid-sized firms in mind, who often struggle to recruit the best cybersecurity talent.

These new offerings will be serviced out of Rackspace’s U.S. offices and availability will be limited at launch.
