Cysiv aims to address several challenges that make it more difficult for organizations to defend themselves against cyberattacks and prevent breaches, including the shortage of skills, alert fatigue, rising costs, and product complexity.

Cysiv offers experts whose role is to provide in-house security teams a variety of services, including hybrid cloud security, network IPS, user protection, advanced threat detection, and deception technologies.

In support of its monitoring and management offerings, Cysiv also offers product deployment, digital forensics, and incident response services.

Customers will pay for Cysiv services on a monthly basis depending on the services they require.

Cysiv will leverage Trend Micro’s cybersecurity platform, security research, and threat intelligence.

HITRUST, a non-profit organization that promotes the protection of sensitive data, will provide expertise in threat information sharing, and compliance and risk management. Trend Micro and HITRUST have worked together in the past.

“The AI-powered security operations and analytics platform that’s at the heart of this new service is part of our on-going efforts to enable the SOC with greater visibility, and to add more actionable intelligence and automation to enterprise security,” said Eva Chen, co-founder and chief executive of Trend Micro.

“Insights from both our risk management and information sharing service, clearly demonstrate that organizations of all sizes are struggling to effectively implement and operate their cyber defenses in today’s escalating threat environment,” said Daniel Nutkis, HITRUST chief executive.
