01 Mar Syncurity Customer Premise Health Receives 2018 CSO50 Award

Organization Recognized for Excellence in Security Operations Automation & Orchestration


Bethesda, MD, March 1, 2018 Syncurity, a market leader in the security operations, automation and orchestration space, today announced that Premise Health, the leader in onsite health and wellness, received a 2018 CSO50 Award from IDG’s CSO for demonstrating the effectiveness of its security operations and measuring the ROI of its security investments to quantifiably reduce business risk.


The CSO50 awards are bestowed on a select group of organizations that have demonstrated that their security initiatives have created outstanding business value and thought leadership for their companies. Premise Health’s Chief Information Security Officer, Joey Johnson, accepted the award at the CSO50 Conference + Awards on February 27, 2018, at the Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch in Scottsdale, Arizona.


“I am extremely honored to accept this award on behalf of Premise Health and our best-in-class security team,” said Johnson. “IR Flow has force multiplied our SOC resources, enabling our team to seamlessly incorporate new data sources with little-to-no impact on analysts’ overall workload. The platform dynamically scores alerts based on our unique risk definitions so we can identify and address the most critical alerts first.”


Based in Brentwood, Tennessee, Premise Health manages more than 600 health and wellness centers across the country and serves more than 250 of the nation’s leading employers, including a significant number of Fortune 1000 companies. In order to safeguard the company’s infrastructure and highly-sensitive personal health information (PHI), Premise Health’s CISO decided to build a robust, scalable security program from the ground up with complete visibility into the newly expanded security function.


Premise Health implemented Syncurity’s IR-Flow platform to quickly and efficiently process alerts, automate incident response workflows and orchestrate containment and remediation, while providing an auditable system of record of all security operations activity for reporting and compliance purposes. The IR-Flow platform allowed Premise Health’s CISO to demonstrate his security team’s ability to significantly increase the number of alerts evaluated daily per analyst, dramatically decrease average “time-to-alert-closure” intervals and ultimately reduce the number of incidents analysts handled.


“Premise Health’s recognition by CSO is a true testament to the vision of their CISO, the performance of their security team and the power of our security operations platform,” said John Jolly, Syncurity CEO. “Organizations like Premise Health are increasingly selecting Syncurity’s security operations platform to help their security analysts reduce alert overload, increase analyst efficiency and automate security processes to reduce business risk and address their most significant threats.”


Syncurity’s IR-Flow platform empowers enterprises to quickly and easily adapt workflow and automation to their unique business processes and security technologies, regardless of team size or maturity. It separates alert handling from incident management processes to increase efficiency, incorporate human analysts for more accuracy and generate a detailed security “System of Record,” enabling reporting and measurement, process improvement and compliance demonstration.
