A comprehensive defence strategy is vital
A dedicated cyber security facility that leverages the intelligent cloud to help safeguard business organisations.
The service, which is called the BUI Cyber SoC, is a state-of-the-art facility backed by world-class Microsoft security technology, including Azure Sentinel – Microsoft’s cloud-native security information and event management (SIEM) software – to not only manage your Microsoft security landscape but your entire IT infrastructures security landscape. The BUI Cyber SoC is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week by certified consultants.
As the first local company to hold the prestigious Microsoft Gold Security Competency, BUI is the leader in security innovation.
“The combination of cutting-edge technology, industry-leading skills, and award-winning service is what makes our Cyber SoC so distinctive,” says BUI Security Manager Hilton Ashford. “It’s a cyber security resource unlike any other in South Africa. We aim to provide a comprehensive, compelling solution for organisations for their digital security.
“There’s a new headline about cyber crime almost every day,” continues Ashford. “And as the threats evolve, so too must our responses. Effective cybersecurity is not a one-time operation: safeguarding sensitive data requires constant vigilance, and not some software you buy.”
The BUI Cyber SoC uses multiple data sources (on-premises or in any cloud) to continuously monitor business environments. Its “tech-agnostic” system integrates with existing applications and products, including other security products and platforms as well as custom enterprise tools to provide a robust security overview for your unique security landscape.
With cloud-powered data collection and processing, threats are detected, analysed and managed in near real-time, while machine learning minimises false positives. Businesses have full visibility across the security landscape (with situational awareness of applications, devices, servers and users) on a continuous basis. The BUI Cyber SoC is billed based on each client’s usage, lowering the barrier to entry and overall costs and allowing for virtually unlimited capacity.
