Spectrum Global Solutions announced that High Wire Networks and its cybersecurity business unit, Overwatch Managed Security, has teamed up with BKD Cyber, the cybersecurity and IT risk consulting arm of BKD CPAs & Advisors, to distribute High Wire Network’s flagship Overwatch 24/7 managed security services to its clients.
Overwatch 24/7 leverages X Detection & Response (XDR) technology that’s managed around the clock by security analysts in the Overwatch SOC to effectively cut through the noise and drill down on real threats.
BKD Cyber recently onboarded a financial institution as its first client for this new service. The client is excited about the opportunities and benefits it will bring to their customer base and cybersecurity efforts.
BKD Cyber offers a range of cybersecurity services, including advisory and training services, proactive control testing and security assessments, regulatory and privacy compliance, and incident preparation/response planning. Offering Overwatch 24/7 managed security services is a key strategic move to help round out their current cybersecurity service offerings.
As previously announced, High Wire has agreed to go public through a merger with Spectrum Global Solutions Inc. (OTCQB:SGSI). The closing of the merger is subject to certain closing conditions that are expected to be resolved within the next few weeks.
