EY and IBM join hands to launch advanced Security Operations Centres in India

EY has collaborated with IBM to launch advanced Security Operations Centres (SOCs) in India. The initiative is part of EY’s managed services offerings for India.

The operations centres are equipped with leading NextGen Threat Detection capabilities powered by IBM’s QRadar platform. These security operations centres are designed to detect, address, and respond to advanced cyberattacks and security risks. These companies have joined hands to address the key security issues in the country.

According to Burgess Cooper, the Partner of Cyber Security for EY India, well-designed security operation centres can go a long way in enabling information security functions. In order to respond faster and work in a more collaborative manner, it is important that businesses deliver on core objectives in line with the strategic direction and vision.

A Global Information Security Survey (GISS) suggests that 77% Indian companies thought of reworking their cybersecurity framework in 2018. The GISS 2018-19 report is based on the responses of 1,400 tech executives, managers, and representatives of large tech organizations.

IBM and EY want to tweak the cybersecurity infrastructure to help businesses function more effectively and efficiently in India. Both the companies have been working together to disrupt businesses and industries using digitization services.

IBM’s existing cognitive offerings and EY’s SOC Security Architecture will help Indian organizations in working more effectively. IBM’s Chief Transformation Officer, Vikas Arora is confident that internal and external threat intelligence will help both the organization in providing active threat intelligence inputs and remediation when confronted with potential risks.
