OVERLAND PARK, Kan.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Today, UnitedLex, a business advisory company with leading-edge cyber-security and legal expertise, launched its Managed Security Service offering. By integrating legal and compliance intelligence, UnitedLex provides organizations with a level of “context-aware security” that IT-centric providers are unable to deliver. With UnitedLex’s Managed Security Service, clients transform end-users from liabilities into security assets, extract the full value and functionality of monitoring and correlation technologies, and are prepared to address and mitigate the business and legal impact of a security breach.
“This forward-leaning approach to security is a much needed paradigm shift for organizations in high-risk, highly regulated industries, such as financial services and healthcare,” explained Jason Straight, Senior Vice President and Chief Privacy Officer of UnitedLex. “However, it is also of great value to medium-sized companies in all industries that face the same risks but lack the resources to achieve the same caliber of security operations as Fortune 500 companies.”
UnitedLex’s unified approach - delivered through on-premise operations or as a turnkey, cloud-based managed service - alleviates the tactical burden of information security. UnitedLex collaborates with information security, legal and business stakeholders to perform a comprehensive risk assessment, mapping and prioritizing critical assets and associated risk. Then, security experts collaborate with the client to build and manage a security program that solves a broad spectrum of business-critical challenges and conforms to UnitedLex’s cyber maturity model. In addition to fully managed security operations and event monitoring, UnitedLex provides continuous cyber risk management, threat intelligence sharing and on-call incident responders to deliver rapid response services in the event of a data breach.
