Onyx launches unrivalled cybersecurity solution with WatchTower for individuals, families, and small-to-medium-sized businesses

COLUMBUS, Ohio, June 4, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — Onyx CTS LLC, an end-to-end comprehensive cyber and physical security solutions company, today announced WatchTower, the first fully-managed cybersecurity solution designed exclusively for individuals, families, and small-to-medium-sized businesses (SMB). WatchTower combines previously unobtainable best-in-class technology with decades of cybersecurity expertise to identify and thwart potential cyberattacks.

Through a combination of cutting-edge technology partnerships, proprietary methodology, and extensive cyber experience, Onyx’s WatchTower analysts use the cloud to deploy security tools and monitor data to protect individuals and SMBs. With WatchTower’s subscription packages for individuals and families, Onyx analysts monitor data from laptops, desktops, mobile devices and home networks to protect against cyberattacks. Onyx also delivers the industry’s first fully-managed robust and scalable cyber suite with its WatchTower subscriptions for SMBs.

The threat of cyberattacks is ever-increasing. In fact, over the past five years, security breaches have increased 67% annually and it is estimated that 146 billion individual records will be exposed in data breaches in the next five years.[1],[2] Moreover, individuals aren’t the only ones at high risk – 43% of cyberattacks target SMBs and of these victims, 60% of small businesses go out of business within six months of a cyberattack.[3] With the high risk and even higher consequences, it is imperative for individuals and SMB owners to protect against cyberattacks.

“Today’s increasingly sophisticated cyberattacks against individuals and SMBs call for an even more sophisticated approach to security,” explained Onyx CTS President and Founder Will Rankin. “While all of our cybersecurity competitors are focusing on expensive solutions for big industry clients, Onyx is filling the void by providing previously unobtainable enterprise-grade solutions to individuals and small-to-medium sized businesses at an affordable price.” Rankin heads the company’s multi-source intelligence gathering, analysis and reporting, establishing Onyx CTS as the private sector subsidiary of major US military contractor Mission Essential.
