➤ EY suite of cyber managed services – EY Cybersecurity as a Service (CaaS) – to be provided on Microsoft Azure...

As more companies embrace digital technologies to grow their business, EY today announced a number of new initiatives with Microsoft designed to help keep organizations safe as they move to the cloud, adopt the Internet of Things (IoT) and protect and secure their organizations from cybercrime.

Enhancing the alliance EY formed with Microsoft in 2015, the new capabilities are the first in a series of planned, jointly developed offerings to help organizations sense, resist, react and recover from cyberattacks. These capabilities include security services for the digital enterprise, digital identity, data protection, improved incident response and recovery capabilities and increased security in a cloud environment.

Unveiled at the RSA Conference 2017, the world’s largest gathering of cybersecurity professionals, the new services can tackle some of the toughest challenges that CIOs and CISOs at Fortune 500 and middle-market companies face. The challenges include building cyber readiness into all aspects of increasingly digital enterprises, improving detection and response and helping CISOs support the “innovate or die” environment that so many companies face.

Chad Holmes, EY Americas Cybersecurity Principal, says:

”Organizations must protect their vital information during a time of digital transformation, without slowing down innovation and business development. Cyber attackers have evolved their tactics, techniques and procedures. We are focused on continued development of sophisticated tools that combine timely, business-related threat intelligence with deep technical experience and cutting-edge analytics so organizations can anticipate and recover from inevitable cyberattacks. The new services we developed with Microsoft can support clients with additional tools to protect and defend their businesses.”

Paul van Kessel, EY Global Cybersecurity Leader, says:

“Findings from the annual EY Global Information Security Survey show that organizations are making progress in the way they sense and resist today’s cyber attacks and threats. But the results also indicate the need for considerable improvement if organizations want to stay operational while the world becomes more connected and attacks become more devastating. The new services Microsoft and EY developed can help our clients address their cybersecurity challenges as they continue transforming their businesses and increasing their footprint in the digital ecosystem.”
