Our Expertise

Don’t Take Our Word For It

  • “Especially for growing mid-market companies, there is a need for broad cyber security services that extend beyond managed detection & response. There is an opportunity for a vendor, like DeepSeas, to package right-sized advisory services, ongoing technical environment maturity, and advanced threat defense for the increasingly complex needs of mid-market businesses.”

    Craig Robinson, Research Vice President, Security Services at IDC
  • “When we brought in DeepSeas to maintain and run our security operations center, they came with a very deep background, not only technical but operational as well. DeepSeas is able to bring in a high caliber of people, systems, engineering, and solutions to help us be successful.”

    Dr. Tina Briney, Cyber Defense Executive
  • “DeepSeas provides a differentiated Managed Detection & Response offering for the mid-market. Their best practice approach driven by their enabling platform uniquely integrates OT [operational technology] with IT, cloud, and mobile threat detection.”

    Edgard Capdevielle, President and Chief Executive Officer, Nozomi Networks

    Ultra by DeepSeas: Our Unique-to-You Delivery Methodology

    Built through decades of experience in driving complex managed cyber security programs across multiple industries, Ultra is a perceptive service delivery methodology that is offered exclusively to clients of DeepSeas.


    Ultra is configured to your business, industry, and technical capabilities. It will feel like a natural extension of your team, not an extension of your software stack.


    Ultra provides comprehensive cyber defense that delivers reliable and consistent results. Joining DeepSeas means that your mission is our mission. We continuously focus on the small details that make a big difference. This includes regularly validating our visibility into your systems as well as applying both false positive reduction methods and false negative reduction methods. Quality assurance is our passion.


    Ultra provides outcomes that are easy to understand, observe, and measure. A service delivery manager, technical account manager, and named security executive are all available to support you. Metrics dashboards, performance reports, and intelligence briefings are curated to help you understand the state of your cyber defense and what we are doing daily to support you.

    Cost Effective

    Ultra focuses on maximizing ROI through applying repeatable assets and tools. You will benefit from intelligence being captured across hundreds of organizations. The days of rip and replace are over – we focus on starting with the tools you already have in place.

    Ultra takes a full life cycle approach, from solutioning, implementation, and customer onboarding to steady state run with a managed services focus. Our methodology emphasizes high-value outcomes that address your key areas of cyber risk. We provide engineering resources and project managers to ensure a smooth transition and onboarding process while offering a 24/7 detection and response focused team. The Ultra implementation capabilities model is designed to align with the ISO 27001 standard, ensuring that core services are easily consumable and properly mapped. Each capability within a tower has three distinct dimensions based on the ITIL model, including Plan (Assess/Architect), Build (Systems, processes, interfacing/config), and Run (Managed Service).
