Deepwatch declared Artera Services has chosen Deepwatch’s MDR solution to secure its operations.

Artera is a leading provider of comprehensive vital and critical infrastructure services in the United States, providing maintenance and construction to energy utilities, infrastructure businesses, municipalities, and cooperatives.

Artera began investigating MDR providers in 2021 to reduce the risk of business and consumer disruption. Artera chose Deepwatch for its MDR service, which includes 24/7/365 monitoring with a named squad of experts and integrations with security tools such as Splunk Enterprise and leading endpoint detection and response (EDR), vulnerability management, and firewall solutions, after evaluating several MSSP and MDR providers with the help of their trusted VAR partner, Defy Security.

Director of cyber security at Artera Services, Sean Fuller said, “The transfer of assets, data, and resources is complex, and requires expert-level integration to ensure business continuity and reliability are continuous for our utility customers. It’s very important that I’m able to determine when we are under attack. And that’s where the partnership with Deepwatch comes in. When something does happen, we are in a good position to respond to it, minimize the impact to the company, and restore our security posture as quickly as possible.”

Artera turned to Deepwatch after looking for an MDR supplier that could integrate with their preferred SIEM, Splunk. Artera now has Splunk Enterprise integrated and tailored to provide only high-priority warnings to their tiny in-house team, thanks to Deepwatch’s MDR solution. Through the Deepwatch platform, Artera has complete visibility across the whole security environment, thanks to this integration and powerful endpoint detection and response.

CEO at Deepwatch, Charlie Thomas said, “The security requirements Artera Services has as a supplier for the critical infrastructure and energy sectors are complex. Our mission is to help customers like Artera stay ahead of threats and mitigate risks that could impact its business and their customers’ businesses, which provide energy and utility services to consumers across the United States. Our named squad of security experts gives Artera an extended security team that monitors systems around-the-clock to protect Artera’s service reliability.”

“Artera’s requirements for advanced managed detection and response, including the ability to use a best-in-class security technology stack, led us to recommend Deepwatch. The ability to push data into the Splunk SIEM that was stood up immediately and managed by Deepwatch is a game-changer for Artera, and gives their in-house team opportunities to work on other strategic security projects,” said Justin Domachowski, president and founder of Defy Security.
