The managed service offers a range of capabilities to help organizations prepare, manage, respond to and recover from security incidents.
“Enterprise IT systems are consistently under attack virtually everywhere, by viruses, malware, denial of service, etc., and studies show that security breaches cost hundreds of billions of dollars per year,” said Phillip Privett, Tech data Technology Solutions’ vice president, Cisco Solutions business. “Combine that with a worldwide shortage of security professionals, and the channel finds itself with a genuine need for a turnkey security response program that customers can deploy right now.”
The Cisco Security Incident Response Service is a solution within Cisco Security Advisory Services that provides the expertise to assess and design a security approach to help foster business growth, help reduce cost and mitigate risk. Cisco’s Incident Response Team synthesizes best practices and deploys information security experts with a unique blend of law enforcement, enterprise security and technology security backgrounds. This team works directly with Cisco’s Talos, the security intelligence and research group, to identify known and unknown threats, quantify and prioritize risk, and reduce risk in the future.
“As the threat landscape continues to grow, cybersecurity services offered by the channel are increasingly required by many end customers,” said Andrew Sage, vice president, Americas Distribution at Cisco. “The Cisco Security Incident Response Service is the latest offering in our go-to-market approach with Tech Data’s Technology Solutions team, and our mutual channel partners will benefit from the value found in their market know-how and security expertise.”
