Four innovative companies are brought together by UltraViolet, which is backed by Achieve Partners, to create a groundbreaking unified cybersecurity platform.
Today, UltraViolet Cyber, Inc. announced the launch of its unique security-as-code platform, which unifies offensive and defensive cybersecurity solutions. The goal of this platform is to give businesses around the world a streamlined method to deal with the constantly growing cyber threat. Metmox, Mosaic454, Stage 2 Security, and W@tchTower came together to form UltraViolet Cyber, which combines decades of experience and expertise at the forefront of security operations to give businesses access to the full range of managed security operations capabilities.
To strengthen their defences and manage cyber incidents, too many organisations still rely on fragmented and disconnected solutions, according to George McKenzie, CEO of UltraViolet Cyber. This is a fundamentally different strategy that integrates those solutions, producing a one-stop unified security operations offering that can manage both offensive (Red) and defensive (Blue) strategies into one UltraViolet strategy to protect organisations. We have developed a platform-enabled offering that offers secure results to our clients by combining Managed Detection and Response (MDR), Vulnerability Management, Penetration Testing, and Red Teaming. Our priority is lowering demonstrable risk so that businesses can concentrate on what they do best.
The establishment of the business coincides with a rise in public awareness of cyberthreats, including the Biden Administration’s National Cybersecurity Strategy, which aims to put in place a coordinated strategy for protecting the nation’s digital ecosystem. With its innovative approach to unified security operations that combines the power of people with a cloud-native, microservices platform architecture, UltraViolet Cyber is supporting this strategy. UltraViolet is pleased to announce a new initiative to address the nation’s acute cyber talent shortage.
According to Aanand Radia, Managing Director at Achieve Partners, “the challenges facing the cybersecurity industry stem from two root causes: the increasing sophistication of cyber threats, and a persistent lack of skilled talent in the field.” By combining a distinctively holistic approach to security with a dedication to new models of training that can close the cyber skills gap, UltraViolet Cyber is demonstrating that it is possible to address both of those challenges at once.
In addition to offering training, UltraViolet Cyber, an Achieve Partners portfolio company, helps apprentices get jobs at UltraViolet and UltraViolet clients by facilitating their career launches. This helps entry-level talent succeed in cybersecurity careers. Businesses are finding it difficult to deal with the constantly changing threats posed by cybercriminals due to the global problem of a lack of qualified personnel in the cybersecurity industry. In order for organisations to be able to adequately defend themselves against cyber threats and safeguard their data and information systems, it is imperative that the cybersecurity talent gap be addressed.
According to Ira Goldstein, Executive Chairman of UltraViolet Cyber, “most organisations still run a legacy detection and response programme that focuses primarily on defence.” “UltraViolet Cyber’s defining feature is the combination of offensive and defensive Security Operations, which is required to address the relentless cyber threat.”
