A decision to upgrade and monitor their cyber security environment left a borough council looking for expert assistance.
A large local authority recognised the need to update their existing cyber security environment to effectively protect their users, data, and systems.
Also, the council lacked any kind of centralised visibility to detect and mitigate potential cyber threats, which they acknowledged as a weak point in their security strategy that could lead to a potential data breach or compliance failure.
What was achieved?
With our advice and team of experienced security engineers, the council was able to successfully and securely migrate to Sophos email, web, endpoint, and server security solutions with minimal disruption to their operations.
In addition to supplying and successfully migrating the council’s cyber security solutions, we provided them with complete visibility and control across their endpoint and server estates with our Managed Detection and Response. With this added protection, the council gained 24x7x365 continuous log monitoring, management and proactive incident response by our in-house security operations centre (SOC).
As part of this project, our team continues to:
- Provide visibility, consistency and centralised policy management across the council’s Sophos estate
- Monitor their endpoint and server logs 24x7x365 through our ConnectProtect® platform
- Perform proactive threat hunting and investigation using both our SOC and AI
- Deliver monthly service reviews to address cyber security risks and help improve their overall cyber resilience
