The Tampa Bay Lightning is “The Best Franchise in Sports” per ESPN's 2016 Ultimate Standings. Abacode is one of the “Most Promising Technology Solutions Providers” per CIOReview Magazine. Together, they are teamed up to guard the high-profile sports and entertainment organization against targeted cyber-attacks, and to help provide community awareness regarding the need for proactive cybersecurity measures.

Abacode’s Cyber Loricaâ„¢ SIEM/SOC platform has been applauded as a best-in-class and must-have solution for deploying real-time surveillance of an organization’s critical networks, 24 hours, 7 days a week.

Forward Looking Statements
The Lightning and Abacode partnership helps address the entire landscape of cyber threats, utilizing advanced technology, which is deployed and managed by a highly trained staff of cybersecurity experts. As leaders in their respective industries, both organizations hope to influence other businesses and government entities to follow suit, and to address cybersecurity attacks proactively.

“Abacode is proud to partner with the Tampa Bay Lightning and Amalie Arena.  It is refreshing to see their leadership taking proactive steps needed to address the new realities of this growing issue.  I am excited that we are helping the Lighting make strategic decisions, which in many cases save a company time and money, instead of tactical decisions that cost time and money.  They are a very results oriented group.” — Michael Ferris, CEO
