Presenting the award to Brad Pearpoint, MD of Advantage, Alex Teh, CEO of Chillisoft, the NZ LogRhythm distributor, shared “I was extremely pleased and proud to see Advantage receiving LogRhythm MSP of the year. For over four years now, I have seen Advantage do some amazing things with their SOC. The level of automation they have been able to implement using their threat intelligence feeds is only one of the examples that show how innovative they have been in building up their forensics and threat hunting capabilities. They are a company that Chillisoft can confidently recommend when asked about managed SOC services.”

Pearpoint responded that “Advantage is extremely proud to be recognised as the LogRhythm MSP partner of the year for 2020. LogRhythm's Next Generation SIEM platform underpins the entire Advantage security services portfolio, allowing us to provide exceptional protection across endpoint, network, user and traditional SIEM workloads for all New Zealand organisations.”
