Protect the hybrid workplace and secure sensitive business data with SCC and Microsoft.
The security of your people, processes, and technologies are of paramount importance, particularly as a security breach may now have an even bigger impact than pre-pandemic – both economically and reputationally.
The overnight pivot to remote working resulted in many organisations simply extending the corporate network, in order to allow employees to access systems and data from home. Today, those same businesses are in need of a longer-term security strategy that address the now exposed cyber security vulnerabilities within the IT infrastructure. A strategy that will protect employees irrespective of the device they’re using, whether they’re working from home, in the office, or other locations. And one that will safeguard against increasing phishing and firmware attacks ever-advancing in sophistication.
With an average of 50 million password hacks occurring every day, employees must be educated on how to work remotely in a secure way. Similarly, cloud security and security management best practices designed to prevent unauthorised access can help keep data and applications secure, from both current and emerging cyber security threats.
Delivering long-term security strategies
Together with Microsoft, SCC are working to ensure long-term cyber and information security, and enable organisations to thrive again. We understand the need to balance the security risks that granting wider access brings, with enabling people to connect quickly and simply. At the same time we have seen a significant increase in attempted resource theft, such as malware and ransomware, across UK markets since the start of the pandemic. That’s why we’re committed to delivering security solutions that fit within your business strategies, to help you improve and strengthen your security posture across your entire organisation.
Sharing the Microsoft Zero Trust approach
Adopting the same Zero Trust mindset Microsoft recognises as a business imperative enables you to empower employees with the flexibility and freedom they want. With this approach, everyone connecting to your corporate network is viewed a s perceived risk, no matter where they are connecting from. A breach is assumed possible at every stage of their journey, and by wrapping critical protection around identity and devices you can give employees the confidence to do their best work safe in the knowledge data, systems, and apps are secure.
Device and identity protection
When it comes to protecting identities, data, applications, and devices across on-premises, cloud, and mobile, Microsoft 365 provides a holistic approach to security. The Microsoft 365 security centre unites multiple security technologies in one comprehensive console that includes Office 365 and Windows 10 Enterprise, plus enterprise-level mobility and security features to protect your entire organisation. SCC can help you realise the benefits of these leading edge security capabilities and empower your employees to be productive from anywhere, on any device.
Beyond Microsoft 365 Applications and utilising E5 licensing, Microsoft have a suite of applications that look at security, compliance, and identity – with the Defender suite of products securing Endpoint, EDGE and core solutions. SCC can transform your security estate to the most cost effective and relevant platform for your business, using a security approach that begins by understanding the maturity of your security strategy. This enables us to implement the right tools and security controls for continuous monitoring and incident response. Our aim is to mitigate legal and financial risk, and to also remove any potential damage to your reputation.
