LAS VEGAS, NV / ACCESSWIRE / JULY 20, 2022 / Tego Cyber Inc. (OTCQB:TGCB), a technology company focused on the development and commercialization of an intelligent cyberthreat hunting application that integrates with leading security information and event management (SIEM) platforms, today released a summary of achievements and milestones met during the fiscal year ended June 30, 2022.
"During this last fiscal year, we completed the first version of our cyberthreat intelligence application, developed then began implementing the path-to-market strategy to monetize our technology, and continued development of a second and third version," stated Mrs. Shannon Wilkinson, President & CEO of Tego Cyber Inc. "We are now entering the revenue phase for the first version of our application," continued Mrs. Wilkinson.
What is SIEM platform?
SIEM stands for security information and event management. A SIEM platform collects log data and cyber events from an enterprise's systems, applications, devices, and networks, then provides an analysis of the data for use in security monitoring, compliance and auditing purposes. SIEM platforms provide a centralized place for cyber security teams to review cyber events. SIEM solutions can reside either in on-premises or cloud environments. All larger companies, organizations and governmental agencies now utilize SIEM software solutions.
Tego Guardian is a proactive intelligent cyberthreat hunting tool that gives macro enterprises the ability to quickly track threats throughout their SIEM platform, mapping out exposures and expediting remediation saving security operations teams time and money. What makes Tego Guardian different from other cyberthreat intelligence applications, is that it is the first commercially available solution that directly integrates into a user's existing SIEM platform. It operates within the platform environment, so security operations teams do not have to exit to a different application to complete a specific task or research a cyber threat. Tego Guardian cross-correlates threats in real time and not only looks forward but back to see if the organization's network has been previously exposed. The first version of Tego Guardian integrates with the industry leading Splunk SIEM platform. Tego Guardian is now available for download through Splunk's app store and is compatible with Splunk Enterprise versions: 8.0.X, 8.1.X, 8.2.X and 9.0. Tego Guardian is also undergoing compatibility verification for Splunk Cloud.
"The biggest issue we hear from potential customers, is that it's extremely difficult to diagnose and research cybersecurity events because of the large volume of low-level data and the high number of alerts a typical SIEM platform will generate," stated Chris White, CISO for Tego Cyber Inc. "Users will get an alert, but this often lacks clarity and context. It requires additional research which then takes time which ultimately costs money and adds potential risk. This is where Tego Guardian comes in. Tego Guardian provides that additional clarity and context in real-time, assisting security operations teams with expediting remediation thereby saving time and money," continued Mr. White.
Future Versions of Tego Guardian
The Company is now completing development of a version of Tego Guardian for integration with the Elastic Security SIEM platform. The Company is planning to commercially launch this version in the fall of 2022. The Company is also in the planning phase of a third version for integration with the Devo SIEM platform. The Company plans to develop versions of Tego Guardian for integration with other leading SIEM platforms including: IBM QRadar, AT&T Cybersecurity, Exabeam, and Google Chronical.
"What makes Tego Guardian unique is the scalability of the application," stated Brent Watkins, Director of Business Development for Tego Cyber Inc. "Tego Guardian is an add-on to an existing SIEM platform. It was purposely designed not to be a stand-alone product. The first commercially launched version integrates with the Splunk SIEM platform. Splunk currently has over 22,000+ enterprise clients using their products and solutions. The second version of Tego Guardian, which is now completing development, will integrate with the Elastic Security SIEM platform. Elastic has 16,000+ enterprise clients using their products and solutions. With each new integration released, there is an established user base already using the SIEM platform which provides our sales team with a clearly identifiable market to target," continued Mr. Watkins.
Since Fall 2021, the Company has been developing the path-to-market and monetization strategy for the first version of Tego Guardian. It has been a challenge due to the uniqueness of the application and the sensitivity of the environments it integrates with. The Company has assembled an inhouse sales team of veteran cybersecurity experts who are contacting cybersecurity leaders and security operations teams using the Splunk SIEM platform to introduce Tego Guardian and the benefits it adds to their existing platform. The Company also recently launched a channel partner program to supplement the inhouse sales initiatives. Channel partners will offer Tego Guardian as an upsell to their existing clients using the Splunk SIEM platform. The channel partner program was developed in partnership with Vation Ventures. Since the launch of the channel partner program, the Company has signed six channel partner agreements.
Additional Revenue Streams
The Company is currently exploring opportunities to leverage its technology and underlying platform. One potential spin-off revenue stream is the reselling of the cyberthreat intelligence data used by the Tego Guardian application. The management team is currently working on a framework for this revenue stream, identifying potential markets, and a developing the path-to-market strategy.
On September 7, 2021, the Company entered into a Master Services Agreement with IONnovate, LLC, a premier application development firm based in Las Vegas, Nevada, to supplement the current development team with additional resources to assist with the development of new integrations of the Company's threat intelligence application. IONnovate currently is working on the integration of Tego Guardian for the Elastic SIEM platform. On February 2, 2022, the Company entered into a marketing services agreement with Vation Ventures to support and accelerate the path-to-market strategy and assist in the implementation of the channel partner program.
