IRVINE, CALIFORNIA and SYDNEY, AUSTRALIA, June 20, 2013 – Proficio, a leading provider of next-generation managed security services, today announced that it is expanding into Australia and New Zealand. In support of this initiative, Proficio has opened an office in Sydney and signed a reseller partnership with CloudPort. CloudPort is a cyber security solutions provider headquartered in Brisbane. “Seldom a week goes by in Australia and New Zealand without a cyber attack or data breach making news,” said Brad Taylor, CEO, Proficio. “Traditional approaches to security monitoring are no longer effective in accurately identifying and prioritizing critical security threats. Proficio’s ProSOC service is the only next-generation SOC-as-a-Service that provides true actionable intelligence and proactive defense. “ “Proficio is one of the fastest growing Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) in the North American market,” said Ken Bartlett, Managing Director of CloudPort. “We chose to partner with Proficio because they provide leading edge technology, 24×7 support from security experts, and the most up-to-date security intelligence based on billions of security events that they monitor for their US clients.” Next-Generation Managed Security Services Proficio is a leader in bringing next-generation cloud-based security to the mid-market. Through Proficio’s managed security services, organizations benefit from the most advanced security monitoring that previously was outside the budget of all but the very largest enterprises.

  • 24×7 security event monitoring, alerting, and remediation
