Tier-3 Pty Ltd, a leading vendor of Security Information and Incident Management software, and manufacturer of Huntsman® technology today released the latest version of its market leading Defence-grade Huntsman® cyber security monitoring solution.

Huntsman® provides real-time threat detection, true behavioural anomaly detection, context awareness, threat intelligence and comprehensive incident management capabilities that allow organisations to detect, prioritise and respond to both known and unknown security threats in real-time.

Huntsman® 5.75 includes live Governance Risk and Compliance (GRC) dashboards that provide a real-time, live view of security compliance status across an organisation. The dashboards are configurable, hence enabling operations as well as senior management stakeholders immediate clarity around key business risk areas aligned to the standards they must meet.  For the managed security service provider (MSSP) and cloud provider market this technology can also deliver a view of security, risk and compliance across multiple customer environments or systems from a single, continuously updated display.

Turning security and system data into actionable business information is a key capability of the Huntsman solution.

The latest version also adds a completely new alert tracking capability that allows complete control, customisation and embedding of the escalation and support workflow covering threat detection, triage, analysis investigation and resolution into the Huntsman alert handler and Incident Management interface.

“Many cyber security monitoring solutions see the point of detection as if it is the only thing that matters; for analysts that is just where the hard work starts,” said Piers Wilson, Tier-3’s Head of Product Management. “Huntsman’s ability to manage detected alerts, support automated workflows and enrich data throughout the incident lifecycle means bringing the time to threat resolution right down to give senior management complete visibility of their current status.  This really sets us apart.”

In addition, Huntsman® 5.75 has extended its threat context and threat intelligence functionality, providing even greater accuracy when identifying potentially dangerous known and unknown threats.  It also provides several process, operational and time saving enhancements for security analysts that allows them to concentrate on their key task: protecting the organisation.

“Industry experts agree that these enhancements are a key technical differentiator and we believe that this update reinforces the position of Huntsman® at the vangurad of the cyber security market,” added Piers Wilson. “Too many security solutions protect only against known threats, which have already been identified. Huntsman® plays a vital role in protecting against unknown threats that cannot, by their very nature, be easily recognised or predicted.”Huntsman 5.75® is available now across all territories.

McGinley Support Services has signed a significant five-year deal with incident management specialist FMG.

The contract includes provision of end-to-end incident and roadside recovery management, coupled with FMG’s incident prevention service; including their Ingenium Dynamics driver behaviour telemetry.

Covering over 400 minibuses, vans and company cars nationwide, the deal was put in place after a successful initial trial of FMG’s solutions, which revealed around £1million of potential savings across the life of the contract.

Andy Saunders, fleet manager at McGinley Support Services, said: “With the recent introduction of FMG’s full suite of services we are confident we will see a reduction in incident rates, fuel bills and carbon emissions, whilst avoiding increases in insurance premiums.

“On occasions when incidents do still occur, we know we can rely on FMG’s proven expertise to look after our drivers and get vehicles back on the road quickly, with a quality repair at the right price.”

Harvey Stead at FMG said: “We are committed to providing intelligent solutions for every client and when McGinley came to us with a very specific set of requirements, we naturally tailored our services to fit.

“As a business which has a large number of multiple passenger vehicles, such as minibuses; safety and incident reduction is a key focus for McGinley and we are looking forward to working with them to deliver a safe and efficient fleet operation.”
