Hughes Launches New Managed Cybersecurity Services for Small to Mid-sized Enterprise Networks
January 2023 by Marc Jacob
Hughes Network Systems, LLC, an EchoStar company, announced it has expanded its suite of managed cybersecurity services for distributed enterprises to include managed detection and response (MDR) and SOC as a service (SOCaaS). The new offerings bring network security expertise from Hughes, plus the benefits of in-house, enterprise-grade protections, to small and mid-sized enterprises, tailored and scaled to address their needs.
Where large enterprises have in-house experts and even their own Security Operations Centers (SOCs) to help mitigate cyber threats, smaller businesses (those with up to 1,000 employees) can now access the same capabilities from Hughes. With the addition of MDR and SOCaaS, Hughes now offers a robust suite of managed security services to help prevent, detect, and respond to threats targeting the smaller enterprise.
The new Hughes MDR service protects enterprises from cybercriminals with proactive intervention, real-time incident response and active threat containment, both through automation and the attention of trained security professionals. Through the SOCaaS offering, Hughes certified SOC analysts monitor and respond to threats to customer networks 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year, bringing them the advantages of decades of network security experience from Hughes. With both services, SOC analysts oversee security information and event management (SIEM), and customers gain insight into their network security posture through a real-time dashboard.
