Managed Security Monitoring – known as Security Information and Event Monitoring (SIEM) – is a comprehensive approach to safeguarding your IT network.
It involves centrally collecting and scrutinising log and event data to detect unusual behaviour or unauthorised modifications. The parameters for triggering alerts are clearly outlined in SIEM, enabling Ascentor’s analysts to proactively take necessary steps to prevent a cyber attack.
Ascentor offers an affordable means to enjoy the advantages of SIEM without the extensive costs and logistical complexities associated with managing your own system. Our Managed Security Monitoring service leverages cutting-edge technologies and our team’s expertise to help clients detect and respond to threats in today’s digital economy.
Organisations are continually exposed to cyber security threats, regardless of size and sector – and incidents caused by suspicious behaviour can often go unnoticed, exposing your organisation to significant data loss and compromised IT assets.
Threats are diverse, widening the range of potential attack vectors to monitor. Threats can include hacking attempts, malware, phishing attempts, disgruntled or careless employees, vulnerable devices and operating systems, unsupported applications and services, mobile and public cloud computing and third-party service providers.
Ascentor provides the capability to swiftly detect and respond to suspicious activity, reducing the impact on business services, assets, or reputation.
Partnering with Ascentor for your Managed Security Monitoring helps reduce your information and cyber security risk, and supports compliance with standards like ISO 27001, PCI DSS and SOC2. You also get immediate access to our team of experienced security experts, who are updated with the industry’s current trends, top tools and latest policy changes.
Ascentor’s Managed Security Monitoring can result in significant cost savings as it eliminates the costs of employing in-house staff, training and managing tools.

Security monitoring is the continuous process of collecting, analysing, and correlating data from various sources within an organization’s IT infrastructure with a view to detect and respond to potential security threats, incidents, or vulnerabilities. The goal of security monitoring is to identify and address security issues in a timely manner, minimizing the risk of data breaches, unauthorized access, and other cyber attacks.
Security monitoring responsibilities are tasks designed to protect an organisation’s IT infrastructure, data, and assets from security threats. Key responsibilities include data collection and log analysis, network monitoring, intrusion detection and prevention, vulnerability assessment and management and endpoint security management.
