Unlike most Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs), Above Security perceives itself not as a product reseller, but as a developer of cutting-edge proprietary technology. The company’s information risk management platform, ArkAngel, is a distributed management platform designed to collect, aggregate, and correlate data from a large number of technology solutions. ArkAngel offers companies a custom, technology-agnostic framework that increases the benefits of their existing security infrastructure, while reducing costs associated with threat mitigation and incident response.
With a strong culture that focuses on customer relations, Above Security follows a “need vs. nice approach,” where the company’s environment adapts and grows with customer needs. This flexibility can be validated with an example, when one of Above Security’s customers communicated a need to integrate an anti- Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) solution into their network environment. “After a thorough analysis and evaluation process in conjunction with the customer, we integrated a novel application into our security console, solving the customer’s problem,” reveals Chehata.
Observing an increasing need for security services in small and medium sized businesses (SMBs), Above Security is soon to launch a security package which is an affordable and scalable solution customized to the needs of SMBs. In the long term, Above Security will continue to adapt to the changing needs of the global security industry. The company plans on increasing their global footprint, outpacing the projected growth in the global MSSP market, and developing in emerging markets. “In the end, however, Above Security’s mission will always remain the same—to make the Internet a safer place for all, to harness the full potential of connecting people and businesses together, and to build trust relationships that can be the catalyst of worry-free collaboration and limitless innovation,” ends Chehata on a strong note.
