Cygilant updates its SecureVue cloud platform, improving security monitoring and visibility

Cygilant, a leading cybersecurity agency and security-as-a-service provider for midsize businesses, highlighted recent additions to its SecureVue cloud platform. SecureVue Cloud enables customers to quickly gain full visibility into their cloud-based operations, making it easier to identify potential issues and make necessary changes.

Cygilant’s SecureVue Cloud Platform gives midsize businesses the visibility and control they need in a simple and affordable way.

New additions to the cloud monitoring capabilities of the SecureVue cloud platform include:
