Global consulting firm Protiviti, a Microsoft Gold Partner, launches new cybersecurity offerings to support organizations that have invested in Microsoft 365 and Microsoft Azure security solutions. The enterprise-grade, highly scalable solutions address the increasing need for enterprises to manage their cyber risks more effectively in the face of rapidly evolving digital technologies and business disruption, such as from the COVID-19 pandemic.
Even before the global health crisis, companies faced increased cyberthreats as the result of rapidly changing business needs, increased adoption of digital technologies, the need to respond more quickly to critical cyber events, and a shortage of cybersecurity talent. Today, the situation is even more dire, as shelter-in-place and lockdown orders have forced organizations to rapidly adapt their infrastructures to support increased remote access, introducing new vectors for cyberattacks.
“As a Microsoft Gold Partner, we have demonstrated our commitment to Microsoft and the ability to deliver dynamic solutions across Microsoft 365, Azure, and Dynamics 365 platforms to large and middle market companies around the world,” said Eric Winton, a Protiviti managing director and the firm’s global Microsoft alliance leader. “Protiviti’s unique holistic approach to cybersecurity combined with our deep expertise in Microsoft platforms enable us to provide complete solutions that help ensure our clients’ systems and data are protected.”
Protiviti’s cybersecurity offerings are designed to quickly increase the efficacy – and reduce the complexity – of managing enterprise cybersecurity threats through:
- Easy access to deeply skilled resources
- Optimized, repeatable, compliant and highly scalable processes
- Market-leading analytics, metrics and techniques to manage risk and compliance controls in alignment with business objectives
“Enterprises are facing unprecedented cyber risks stemming from rapid technology evolution and dramatic business disruption, and simply strengthening IT or cyber business controls is insufficient to effectively manage today’s threats,” said Terry Jost, a Protiviti managing director and leader of the firm’s Managed Security Services. “Our new highly scalable cybersecurity managed services provide the consistent processes, sustainable operations and ongoing compliance that companies need to confidently manage cybersecurity threats and data protection.”
