As a learning resource for education and workforce development in southeastern Massachusetts, Bristol Community College (BCC) provides programs with a strong foundation in liberal arts and sciences and an emphasis on practical, employment-oriented education in allied health, engineering and technology, and business. BCC also offers comprehensive developmental education and adult literacy services in a learner-centered, supportive community.

To address its cyber security requirements, BCC selected Cygilant’s Security-as-a-Service to provide 24x7x365 security monitoring and incident analysis for its most critical assets. The innovative security-as-a-service model allows affordable access to a full suite of SIEM resources, and cyber security expertise. “It’s a terrific solution for us,” said Steven Frechette, Information Security Officer, Bristol Community College.

“Cygilant’s service model really works for us,” said Shawn Tivnan, Assistant Director, Web Services and Technology Training, Bristol Community College. “To protect our infrastructure we needed a SIEM tool and expert services to understand the information that comes out of it. With Cygilant, we get both in a single package.”

“Cygilant allows us to gain full visibility into our network at a very attractive price point.”
