30 Most Influential Companies of the Year 2020
With growing businesses, the need for managed cloud and cybersecurity has become an absolute necessity. Every company wants to deploy the best cloud technologies and security solutions. But most Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) commonly follow a “one size fits all approach,” supporting a broad range of technologies. It is impossible to become and remain an expert in the vast, ever-changing security technologies.
deepwatch continuously evaluates the best of breed technologies in its labs and only supports a narrow set of technologies. This results in deepwatch supporting industry best, high-quality solutions for its customers. We had a session with deepwatch’s CEO, Charlie Thomas, about the innovation they bringto the table.

Finally, we’re proud to announce deepwatch Lens Score, a free, easy to use web application for those responsible for measuring, monitoring, and improving their company’s security program.
Tell us more about deepwatch Lens Score and how security leaders can use it to enhance their security programs.
deepwatch Lens Score makes it quick and easy to choose among multiple competing technologies and prioritize your investments based on actual security value. Historically, CISOs have trouble measuring and reporting on the value of what they and their team do daily. Budget requests are even more challenging. In a few minutes, deepwatch Lens Score provides recommendations based on data science and deepwatch’s proprietary maturity model to give CISOs an immediate score or index on a ten-point scale of their current security score. And it enables scenario planning to understand the impact of new investments and helps determine the next best area to invest in from an overall security improvement perspective.
deepwatch customers utilize the Maturity Score to calculate and improve their score to maximize their detection and response capabilities over time. The Maturity Model scores security operations posture based on the visibility, impact, and value of the security data in a selected data sources - and produces a potential maturity score.
