Chicago, IL. OculusIT, a leading Managed IT and Cloud Services company, recently announced its partnership with Stevens Institute of Technology for Managed Security Services.

Stevens Institute of Technology was looking to partner with an expert IT services company for strengthening cybersecurity measures at their campus. OculusIT, with over 15 years of higher education IT experience, has helped numerous higher education institutions with an evolved SIEM, threat detection and response solutions with real-time data enrichment, multifaceted analytics, complete incident management and flexible deployment options.

Through this partnership, Stevens Institute of Technology will leverage OculusIT EYE™, the 24×7 Security Operations Center for systems and devices threat mitigation. This solution provides unmatched threat detection capabilities and a definitive response against cyber-attacks. This includes incident monitoring, analysis, routing, handling, and reporting via security event monitoring, phone/email and ITSM ticketing, and account management support.
