ISLAMABAD, July 16, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Mid-year is often a good time to review the status of your business and consider making changes to help your business grow during the second half of the year. It is also an opportunity to assess the level of support your business is getting from digital solution tools, what is available in the market, and what to consider helping propel your business and customer engagement.

While enterprise businesses may have large technology budgets and can assemble a team of specialists, it can be different for small and microbusiness owners. They grapple with a variety of unique challenges running their business to compete in crowded marketplaces, yet this is starting to change.
Generative AI (AI) has taken significant strides over the past year and introducing new tools and strategies does not have to become a major investment or require expertise. With AI by your side, it’s use can help create a marketing strategy to not only stand out, but also help to drive increased engagement and fuel growth. With the increasing use of AI tools, Generative AI is on a path to become the next equalizer for small businesses.
Putting AI to work for content creation
AI becomes a companion in crafting both creative and easy to use content calendars. With AI tools, it can be easy to determine which themes and topics will resonate with desired audiences. From there, content can be created to be distributed across channels, establishing deeper connections with customers while boosting an online presence.
Generative AI steps in to assist in crafting content that captures attention and keeps readers engaged. It provides suggestions and enhancements to existing content and suggests professional images giving small businesses an edge in refining their messaging. And it saves time by tailoring integrated content across various channels. AI’s ability to tweak copy based on real-time feedback and analytics, can also help to fine-tune a rich content strategy delivering strong results.
Unveiling the benefits for targeted marketing
AI tools can also be used to delve deeper into competitor research. Using sophisticated algorithms and data, AI tools can swiftly gather information on competitors’ activity. And that is not all – AI can also serve up invaluable customer insights by analysing data from various sources. By discerning customer preferences, behaviours, and demographics, small businesses can more precisely pinpoint the right audience for their products and services. Once locked onto the right targets, AI helps discover the most effective channels to reach potential customers, helping to ensure marketing efforts are reaching the right audiences.
Evaluate, Adjust, and Shine
AI powered tools are not just here to make businesses look good, they excel at measuring customer performance. By tracking metrics like website engagement rates, conversion rates and customer satisfaction, AI provides insights into what is working and what needs a tweak. This allows small businesses to gauge the effectiveness of marketing campaigns and make informed decisions for improvement.
With access to this variety of insights, along with knowledge of their own business plans, businesses can take advantage of the benefits of using AI tools to streamline processes, consider new ideas and gain customer insights. Working along with human intervention, these insights can be essential to refine the outcomes. Knowing the business well can add the human evaluation element to the AI produced insights, which presents a more well-rounded view when considering opportunities for improvement.
With business owners using AI responsibly, the use of AI tools can be a significant technology enhancement for small businesses looking to go up against their competition and successfully grow their business. With these tools easily available to small business owners and entrepreneurs, AI offers the ability to both save time and money while elevating brand presence and resonating with target audiences more effectively than ever before.

Secureworks Elevates State of Cybersecurity for Mid-Market Customers with new Tailored Managed Detection and Response Offering

Published

secureworks-elevates-state-of-cybersecurity-for-mid-market-customers-with-new-tailored-managed-detection-and-response-offering

Taegis ManagedXDR Plus delivers bespoke security at scale to solve mid-market resource challenges that traditional MDR solutions can’t
ATLANTA, July 16, 2024 /PRNewswire/ — Secureworks® (NASDAQ: SCWX), a global leader in cybersecurity, today announced the launch of Taegis™ ManagedXDR Plus, a new Managed Detection and Response (MDR) offering that liberates the mid-market from indistinct, cookie cutter security solutions that don’t meet their unique security requirements. Today’s announcement means that this market sector will no longer be forced to use homogenous cybersecurity solutions that don’t align to unique environments or the AI-fueled attacks that target them. Taegis ManagedXDR Plus empowers companies with the tailored use cases, compliance reports, and alerting they need to tackle the rising tide of cyberattacks and regulations with limited budget and people.

Nearly one in three (30%) mid-market companies experienced at least one ransomware attack in 20231 highlighting the need for organizations to strengthen their cyber resiliency with a proactive approach, tailored to their environment. Taegis ManagedXDR Plus addresses the evolving needs of this market sector with greater customization and flexibility on alerting, workflows, and reports to address their specific environment, industry regulations, and risk profile. These personalized configurations are supported by expanded threat hunting and access to proactive services to further increase their vigilance against threats. Organizations can see more, detect better, and respond faster by leveraging Secureworks security operations expertise and threat intelligence to fortify their cyber resiliency and exposure management.
“Until today, the mid-market has had to make do with security solutions that do little to bolster their cyber posture. Yet as the economic driving force for countries around the world, the butterfly effect of a cyberattack on organizations in this sector can often be felt far and wide, testing the digital resilience of the wider global economy. It is imperative for our collective defense that organizations of all sizes have access to cybersecurity that improves their security posture within the reality of their budget,” said Kyle Falkenhagen, Chief Product Officer, Secureworks. “The cost of building a SOC in-house quickly escalates when you consider the breadth and depth of expertise required for these advanced challenges, let alone the costs of hiring, training and retaining a robust staff for 24/7 coverage. Taegis ManagedXDR Plus enables mid-market customers to take full advantage of the Taegis platform and our in-house experts to up-level their security to an enterprise level without breaking their budget.”
Delivered using the Secureworks Taegis XDR platform, Taegis ManagedXDR Plus expands upon the capabilities of Secureworks Taegis ManagedXDR solution in several areas:
Tailored AI Enriched Use Cases: Taegis ManagedXDR Plus customers can leverage customization options tailored to their specific needs.Expanded Threat Hunting: This new tier quadruples the number of AI assisted threat hunts available as part of Taegis ManagedXDR, and allows for customized requests to more rapidly uncover emerging and undiscovered threat actors targeting their environments.Premium Support with Named Experts: Customers can also tap into the knowledge of Secureworks experts to further optimize Taegis in their environment, including 1×1 guidance to help efficiently build their security posture over time.Proactive Security Services: Customers can select from a range of proactive security services to further raise their resiliency, identify gaps in posture, and deepen Taegis knowledge.Secureworks now offers three tiers within its Taegis ManagedXDR portfolio – Taegis ManagedXDR, Taegis ManagedXDR Plus and Taegis ManagedXDR Enhanced – delivering on the company’s commitment to meet customers wherever they are on their security journey. Regardless of the tier, Taegis ManagedXDR customers enjoy transparent pricing in an inclusive model which includes direct access to security experts within 90 seconds, one year of log retention to assist in threat hunting and compliance needs, hundreds of integrations to unify their existing ecosystem, and more to provide mid-market customers peace of mind and predictability in their cybersecurity budget.
“In an increasingly sophisticated cybersecurity landscape, enterprises find it challenging to handle security operations by themselves. These organizations have distinct needs. Secureworks acknowledges this and provides increased flexibility with Taegis ManagedXDR Plus,” said Lucas Ferreyra, cybersecurity industry analyst, Frost & Sullivan. “This new MDR service tier delivers additional capabilities that multiply the value of Secureworks MDR service, further enhancing prevention, detection and response, and showing why Secureworks is one of the leaders in the MDR space.”
