Watchtower 365

Watchtower 365 is proactive IT security monitoring and IT risk detection managed services. The services uniquely combine automated detection of security relevant issues and risks with the analysis and assessment done by experts. Data never leaves the clients ‘premises. There is hardly any need for training, configuration or maintenance and no requirement for additional capital expenditures or headcount.

The Watchtower 365 solution is offered as a combination of automated risk identification (“Risk Detection“) and manual assessment by experts (“Risk Intelligence“). The heart of the Risk Detection is the Watchtower Box, a hardware appliance with a hypervisor running a couple of Linux operating systems, including a Risk & Security sensor. It is operated in the enterprise network and includes all components for the risk detection such as SIEM, Host-based IDS, Network IDS, Vulnerability Assessment and the correlation engine. All network data and log information will be gathered, analyzed and processed here. All data collected remains always on the Watchtower Box within the company.

The correlation engine then processes all recovered information and events, aggregates and correlates them so that risks are obtained from a large amount of data. Risk identification is based on rules and policies that are defined in advance and are continuously updated. The identified risks by the Risk Detection are regularly analyzed in a second step by the Risk Intelligence team. To connect to the Watchtower Box within the company from the Watchtower 365 Security Operations Center (SOC) a secure connection with encryption is used. Furthermore, every action is logged, for the client, the current risk status and all risks identified are reported in a single, browser-based dashboard, which is operated on the Watchtower Box.

This results in easy to understand risk reports, including risk analysis and assessments that are always tailored to the individual circumstances and the IT infrastructure of the client. As provided as managed service, there is no need for investments in hard- or software and the respective support as well as in other resources or training for staff.
