Discover Lumu's 2023 MSP breakthroughs: Improved threat detection, incident management, and more.

Table of Contents

At Lumu, our dedicated product team is constantly working to ensure that our MSP offering continues to evolve and provide value to our partners and their clients. Over the last year, we’ve made significant enhancements to the platform to simplify how our partners provide 24/7 threat detection and response services. 

During the last 12 months, we analyzed 2.6 trillion+  records of network metadata, 160% more than in 2022. From that metadata, we detected 321 million+ adversarial contacts, 67% more than in 2022. You may ask why this is relevant. Well, the more network metadata we analyze, the more efficient our AI capabilities become. Through collective defense, online learning, and transfer learning AI models, our system is set up to improve with additional customers and metadata sources.

Let’s take a look at some of the product highlights and enhancements to the platform in 2023. 

Lumu for MSPs Lite and Self Service: Streamlined Cybersecurity for MSPs

We have to start by recapping the release of Lumu for MSPs Lite, which gives MSPs the ability to automatically detect and block threats at no cost. 

The offering provides the full experience of Lumu for MSPs, by providing 24/7 threat detection and response for up to 3 tenants, with 3 integrations (including integrations for data collection, response, and security operations), and up to 50 endpoints.

MPS can now autonomously manage their operations, such as adding new tenants, increasing the number of monitored endpoints of each tenant, or customizing subscription plans. 

Our streamlined checkout process and simplified pricing model further enhance operational efficiency and cost-effectiveness.

Empowering MSP Cybersecurity Teams

Lumu’s MSP offering has always been focused on helping MSPs operate cybersecurity better, this is why we made significant changes to our incident management platform. 

Even though Lumu provides 24/7 automated detection and response, we understand analysts need to be able to quickly access information in an environment where every second counts. We enhanced this view so that cyber analysts can be more efficient. This centralized view of all malicious activity provides the ability to filter, understand operational metrics, and take actions on behalf of clients.

In this section, you’ll also be able to see how many incidents have been closed or muted based on the selected timeframe.

The ‘Incident Details’ section is where teams prioritize incidents and view incidents based on what is open, muted, or closed.

Our ‘Filters’ section allows users to filter incidents based on threat type, endpoints affected, labels, contacts, date of creation, and more. These filters are designed to quickly find the incidents.

This section also allows you to search for incidents by typing keywords, download the list of incidents, refresh incidents and clear filters as needed. 

Lastly, the ‘Take Action’ option gives you the ability to select multiple incidents and take group actions like closing, muting, or marking ‘Start Working’ to let other members of the organization know that you’re working on it.

Focused on prioritization and incident management, the incident view was enhanced to make operating cybersecurity easier.

More Context, Better Decision Making

Our incidents now contain additional details around actions taken by other elements of your client’s cybersecurity stack. This helps MSPs understand what has already been done so they can focus on remediation efforts and close out the incident within the Lumu portal quickly.
