BT reports the opening of a new Security Operations Centre (SOC) in Eschborn, near Frankfurt. The SOC will monitor BT’s own assets as well as the networks and IT infrastructure of BT customers on a 24-7 basis.
The SOC will combine BT’s own threat intelligence with information provided by partners and government agencies to detect and analyse cyber threats in real-time. This will be used to advise customers on how to mitigate threats and defend their networks.
The new SOC is part of BT’s global 15 SOCs, providing ‘follow-the-sun’ services for customers. More than 2,500 security specialists work for BT around the world. While its main focus will be the protection of global customers, it will also help address compliance needs of German companies requiring that sensitive data stays in the country. BT also employs a security team dedicated to Germany, offering a broad range of security services. These include Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) mitigation, firewall management, Identity and Access Management (IAM), penetration testing, solutions against malware, spam and phishing; plus security consulting and training.
Torsten Jüngling, general manager for BT Security in Germany, Austria, Switzerland, the Nordics and Eastern Europe, said: “Security is at the very top of the agenda for many CIOs and CEOs as they steer their businesses through complex digital transformation journeys. BT has one of the most comprehensive portfolios of managed security services and an extensive global team of professional consultants around the world. By further strengthening our capabilities in Germany, we are determined to become the security partner of choice for companies based in the region.”
