Rackspace joins AWS Security Hub as the first consulting MSSP partner

Cybersecurity remains at the forefront of the IT agenda, which means businesses are expecting more-convenient ways to consume security tools. While the availability of cloud native security tools directly within public cloud is indeed convenient, many businesses don’t have the expertise to use them to their full potential. These same businesses are also finding it difficult to respond to security and compliance alerts in a timely manner. That’s why we’re proud to announce that we are the first consulting managed security service provider (MSSP) partner for AWS Security Hub, offering consulting services for AWS cloud-native security tools. With AWS Security Hub, businesses get consolidated, aggregated, organized and prioritized security alerts from multiple AWS services, such as Amazon GuardDuty, as well as from AWS partner solutions.

Expanding Rackspace Service Blocks™

Through our newly expanded Rackspace Service Blocks™ for Cloud Native Security offering, AWS customers can receive around-the-clock managed security services for AWS Security Hub, Amazon GuardDuty and AWS’s newest security tool IAM Access Analyzer. In the future, we will provide support for Amazon Inspector and Amazon Macie as well. Customers will receive 24x7x365 support from certified security experts in the global Rackspace Security Operations Center (SOC). Our security specialists deploy, configure and manage AWS security tools while also monitoring security threats in the customer’s AWS environment and providing rapid remediation. What this means in greater detail is that threat information and alerts are drawn directly from built-in AWS cloud security tools to the Rackspace Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) system for advanced analysis, enabling the Rackspace SOC team to help customers stay one step ahead of security threats.
