Consulting giant Ernst & Young (EnY) have partnered with IBM to launch a Security Operations Center (SOC) as a part of its managed services offerings in India. The alliance seeks to equip enterprises in the country with threat detection capabilities by leveraging IBM’s cloud security platform QRadar.

According to EnY, organizations are taking serious steps to fortify their cybersecurity end as threats continue to evolve across business landscapes. They claim that more than 77% of the organizations in India are working beyond their cybersecurity essentials and are rethinking their security framework to support the business effectively.

By partnering with EnY, IBM say that they will integrate their QRadar cloud security platform with the former’s cyber security intelligence. They believe that this combination which will find form at their SOC in India will provide enterprise customers with cognitive offerings and secure their IT environments.

Burgess Cooper, Partner – Cyber Security, EnY India claims that this Security Operations Center will allow enterprises to respond faster and work more collaboratively. He also believes that the center will ensure that enterprises deliver on their core objectives that are in line with their strategic vision and mission.

It will be interesting to see how EnY makes the most of this alliance, following their partnership with Symantec to help organizations manage cyber risks.
