BT and Google Cloud have announced a new partnership focusing on a commitment to cybersecurity innovation.
As part of the partnership, BT will become a managed services delivery partner for Google’s Autonomic Security Operations (ASO) offering based on Google Chronicle. ASO is a holistic framework that combines principles, practices, and tools that enable organisations to take an adaptive and automated approach to threat management. Underpinned by Chronicle’s peta-byte scale detection, a data lake powered by Google Cloud’s data and analytics platform BigQuery, and rich, compelling analytics via Looker, the solution decreases the time to detect and respond to threats—which is essential in the face of the increasing volume and complexity of cyber-attacks.
Customers will benefit from the new partnership by gaining the technological capabilities of Google Chronicle, combined with BT’s ability to deliver cybersecurity services to organisations with complex estates and requirements. Customers will be supported by experts from BT’s Security Advisory Services team, who leverage BT’s experience in security operations and integration to help organisations ensure that they have optimised their wider security architecture to fully align with their priorities and ambition.
“Combining Google Chronicle’s capabilities with BT’s view of global networks and experience of providing managed security services is a really exciting prospect,” said Tris Morgan, Managing Director, Security at BT. “The ASO solution will help our customers to rapidly identify risks and automatically enhance their cyber defences—providing the speed that’s essential to combating cyber-attacks. It represents the first step in our partnership with Google Cloud on cybersecurity, with both companies committed to providing new innovations and solutions that help organisations stay ahead of an increasingly threatening cyber threat landscape.”
