About our firm

Located in Massachusetts with consultants living throughout the US, since 2009 SEMplicity has provided cutting-edge data-centric cybersecurity solutions to large enterprises. We serve clients in North America and EMEA, and are a proud elastic services partner and reseller since 2017. 

History

We have always focused on the unique needs and challenges of medium and large enterprises. In 2009, we were founded to provide expert security and technical consulting to support the ArcSight SIEM product, then the undisputed market leader. We built, fixed, enhanced, grew and improved ArcSight installations throughout North America, including several Fortune 10 companies.

In 2016, we recognized two critical trends

1

The big data requirements associated with collecting and storing all the log records necessary to support comprehensive event detection and threat hunting had overwhelmed legacy SIEM platforms; and

2

Security and observability were gradually converging in terms of data collected, storage requirements, features (such as anomaly detection) and most importantly, customer expectations. Stakeholders were starting to realize that an outage is an outage, whether caused by a security problem, application error, resource constraint, or whatever.

This realization is what led us to the elastic.

With its horizontal scalability; incredibly rich and growing feature set; blazing fast search performance; flexible storage configurations; and so much more, we came to realize that elastic solves the enterprise big data problem once and for all for both security and observability now and into the future. So we became an elastic reseller. We hired and trained our team of top elastic expert. This is how we grew to become the largest services partner of Elastic N.V.

Values

Today, we are a focused elastic stack engineering company run by and for consultants. We are a close group of colleagues with careers spent in large enterprise cybersecurity and big data. We deliver elegant solutions, on time and with no drama. We pride ourselves on the way we treat our select group of expert consultants, which includes excellent compensation, minimal internal bureaucracy, insistence on work-life balance, a team-oriented collaborative environment and continuous skills improvement. The result is a different model for a boutique consulting company: non-transactional, calm, easy to work with, dedicated to building long-term relationships with our clients. Since 2009, this winning formula has made customers and employees alike happy they chose SEMplicity.
