UnitedLex Redefines Managed Security With Context-Aware Service

Best-of-Breed Managed Security Service Provides Fortune 500 Caliber Security Capabilities to Medium-Sized Businesses

Overland Park, Kansas – (April 21, 2015) 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.
