In the ever-evolving landscape of cybersecurity threats, the need for comprehensive solutions that seamlessly unify security measures is growing.

At Brigantia, we understand MSPs' challenges in managing multiple security products efficiently while ensuring robust client protection. That's why we’re excited to spotlight Heimdal's Threat-Hunting and Action Centre (TAC), a groundbreaking platform designed to consolidate and unify cybersecurity operations.


Heimdal, one of our leading vendors, has been a partner since 2016. Their cybersecurity products have empowered security and IT teams for many years and provided comprehensive protection. Their TAC is making managing these solutions simple for MSPs.

TAC – what you need to know

Heimdal's TAC is more than just another cybersecurity tool—it addresses the needs of MSPs seeking a unified approach to security management. Developed to tackle the complexities of managing multiple security products, TAC serves as a centralised platform where MSPs can monitor, analyse, and respond to security threats in real time.

TAC is rooted in Heimdal's commitment to innovation and excellence in cybersecurity, which has culminated in cutting-edge technology and industry-leading expertise. The platforms’ ability to streamline security operations and provide actionable insights is a game-changer.

Top five features of TAC

Designed to pull various resources into one space, all the heavy lifting is done for you through TAC's innovative features.

  1. Unified interface—TAC provides MSPs with a single-pane-of-glass view, consolidating data from multiple Heimdal products into one intuitive dashboard. This unified interface enhances visibility and simplifies security management.
  2. Threat-hunting capabilities - TAC's built-in capabilities enable MSPs to identify and neutralise threats before they escalate proactively. The TAC globe locates all the machines an MSP looks after, giving each one a risk score between 1 and 100. The higher the number, the higher the risk, but by leveraging advanced analytics, TAC empowers MSPs to stay ahead of emerging threats and, over time, drive down the risk threat for each machine.
  3. Real-time alerts—With TAC, MSPs receive real-time alerts about potential threats, enabling them to take immediate action to mitigate risks. These alerts are prioritised based on risk scores assigned to each machine, ensuring that the most critical issues are addressed promptly.
  4. Automated remediation—TAC automates the process, allowing MSPs to respond quickly and efficiently to security incidents. Pre-established commands enable rapid threat containment, reducing the time and effort required for manual intervention.
  5. Managed service option—For MSPs that lack the resources or expertise to manage TAC internally, Heimdal offers a managed service option through Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR) and their Security Operations Centre (SOC). This 24/7/365 monitoring and support ensure round-the-clock protection for MSPs and their clients.

Benefits of TAC for MSPs

The benefits of TAC extend far beyond just streamlining security operations.

  1. Enhanced efficiency—By consolidating security products into a single platform, TAC reduces complexity and improves operational efficiency.
  2. Improved visibility—TAC provides unparalleled visibility into security threats, allowing MSPs to proactively identify and respond to issues.
  3. Cost savings—By leveraging TAC's unified approach to security management, MSPs can reduce overhead costs associated with managing multiple disparate solutions.
  4. Scalability—TAC's modular architecture allows for easy scalability, making it suitable for MSPs of all sizes and industries.

How has the MSP community responded to TAC?

TAC has received an extremely positive response within the MSP community. In the past, alternative product stack solutions like Microsoft have been costly. Heimdal has changed this. MSPs have said unification is the drive forward, and end users are also pushing towards a more unified approach.
