BlackStratus Partners with Alpha Genereation to Bring CYBERShark to The UK

sharkfinEnterprise SIEM vendor BlackStratus has announced a partnership with Alpha Generation to assist with the launch of its SIEM as a Service product CYBERShark and channel operations in the United Kingdom (UK).

CYBERShark is a  cloud-based white-label Security Information Event Management (SIEM) platform designed specifically to meet the needs of small to midsize businesses (SMBs).

Cybercriminals often attack small and midsized businesses to launch attacks against large enterprise targets because, in addition to their own data, most SMBs have access to partners’ computer systems and access to their valuable data and intellectual property. In a recent report by the National Security Alliance about the cybersecurity threats on SMBs, the following statistics were given: 71% of data breaches target small businesses; 69% of cyber attacks target retail and restaurants; 96% of data breaches target payment card data, and 60% of small businesses close within six months of experiencing a data breach.

In addition to their own data, most SMBs have access to partners’ computer systems and access to their valuable data and intellectual property. Previously the SMB market was unable to afford advanced security and compliance technology because of the enormous cost, leaving only large enterprises the means to afford the only technology capable of identifying cyber security threats in real-time. To address this exponentially growing threat on the SMB market, BlackStratus has engineered its award-winning CYBERShark technology so SMB’s can not only afford it, but can receive the same level of protection as the largest enterprises in the world.

“We’re excited to have a partner like Alpha Generation that will help us penetrate the UK market with our new CYBERShark security and compliance service by growing our base of channel partners,” said Dale Cline, CEO of BlackStratus. “At BlackStratus we strive to be an innovator and leader in the cyber security market that transcends the boundaries of traditional on-premise solutions with specialized products that rapidly and dramatically improve security for organizations while leveraging the power of cloud computing to reduce the cost and complexity of maintaining a SIEM infrastructure.”
