Logicalis enhances managed security services

Digital managed service provider Logicalis has announced the launch of Intelligent Security, a blueprint approach to its global security portfolio designed to deliver proactive advanced security for its customers.

Intelligent Security is based on tracking and analysing cyberthreats, and knowledge of the latest prevention methods deployed across the company’s customer base.

Logicalis’s 10th annual CIO report surveyed 1000 chief information officers (CIOs) globally and found that, of the 83% of CIOs who experienced cyber attacks in the last 12 months, only 43% feel prepared for another breach. Designed to help CIOs manage these pressures, the company said Intelligent Security will leverage Logicalis's security capabilities as well as its relationships with global partners such as Cisco and Microsoft, where it has the highest levels of security accreditations.

“Many organisations focus on one area of the security fabric; we recognise, in today’s cybersecurity landscape there are no silos,” said Toby Alcock, chief technology officer at Logicalis. “Organisations must look across the entire footprint, from secure connectivity, securing the cloud, securing the hybrid worker and weaving secure operations across the entire organisation.”

Logicalis said it continues to prove its robust security offer by achieving Microsoft-verified Managed Extended Detection and Response (MXDR) Partner Status, launching Cisco Powered Intelligent Connectivity, built on zero-trust security, and being one of only six partners globally working with Cisco to develop an XDR proposition and enhance its Cisco security capabilities.

“We are at a pivotal point as security threats grow in scale and sophistication,” Alcock said. “CIOs and IT leaders are rethinking security in the era of AI and considering whether they have the in-house skills necessary to operate safely. Logicalis has seen a 300% surge in demand globally for managed security services in the past 12 months.

“Our customers are looking for a holistic, proactive approach to navigating security and we believe our simplified portfolio, our partnerships and our investments in cyber talent for the next generation will deliver customers what they need.”
