EiQ Networks to Provide Massasoit Community College of Massachusetts with Comprehensive SANS Control Monitoring

Posted on

Boston, Mass.

EiQ Networks, a pioneer in hybrid SaaS security and continuous security intelligence services, today announced that Massasoit Community College has selected its SOCVue® hybrid SaaS security service. Massasoit Community College is a public two-year college in the Massachusetts Public Higher Education System that offers associate degree programs in arts, sciences, and applied sciences, and one-year and short-term certificates for a range of occupations and interests. Corporate and job skills training courses, personal enrichment classes, theater and concert performances, and programs for high school students, younger children, and seniors are among the other offerings available to the residents of Southeastern Massachusetts.

Massasoit Community College will use EiQ’s SOCVue Security Monitoring to monitor several SANS controls, including Control 2 (Inventory of Authorized and Unauthorized Software), Control 5 (Malware Defenses), Control 11 (Limitation and Control of Network Ports, Protocols, and Services), and Control 14 (Maintenance, Monitoring, and Analysis of Audit Logs). They chose EIQ because of the ease of implementation and management, and because EIQ made it possible for Massasoit to monitor multiple SANS Controls even with a small IT staff.

“EiQ has allowed us the ability to be more proactive as to how we look at security,” said Jack Barrett, Deputy CIO, of Massasoit Community College. “The EIQ support staff is great! The weekly meetings are helping with the implementation of the service. Requests are handled in a timely and professional manner.”

“EiQ is pleased to be working with Massasoit Community College,” said Kim Ann King, Vice President of Marketing, EiQ Networks. “Our proactive IT security monitoring service is perfect for educational institutions looking to bolster their security posture and keep in compliance with SANS controls.”
