Since 2013, EBRC has developed its security consulting services to help its customers before the start of their projects. In 2014, EBRC also made its SoC-as-a-Service available to 'external' clients.
To enhance its 'Trusted Security Europe' services in Luxembourg and abroad, EBRC partnered with Guidance Software and ITrust France to launch new offers of 'Security-as-a-Service':
- 'Vulnerability Management as a Service', in partnership with the company ITrust France(364 kb). ITrust France specializes in security consulting, analysis and vulnerability management via its IKARE solution. IKARE allows customers to better identify security vulnerabilities and therefore act more quickly in the implementation of protective measures for their IT systems. EBRC and ITrust France have signed an exclusive partnership agreement for this service in Luxembourg and Belgium, and it can also be offered by EBRC in other countries.
- 'Cybersecurity & Forensics as a Service', in partnership with the company Guidance Software. Guidance Software is a US company that sells its Encase forensics solution internationally. Guidance Software and EBRC have joined forces to provide analysis, expertise, advice and support to EBRC's clients. This new offering in EBRC's portfolio of services allows for the detection of attacks, their mapping and analysis, monitoring and an efficient response. It is inconceivable that a defence system could be based solely on protection without a reaction that is prepared and available within the deadlines imposed by the business. This is therefore an important behavioural tool to readjust security and to identify loopholes without affecting employee productivity. EBRC and Guidance have signed an exclusive partnership for the service in the Benelux countries and this service, too, can be offered by EBRC in other countries.
These service offerings are designed for businesses of all sizes, they help to democratize access to security and forensics services. The data collected from clients is stored in EBRC's infrastructures in Luxembourg.
'In the current environment, companies aim at regaining control and complete mastery of the activities within their IT systems. For this reason, it is necessary to have a global view if things. This is precisely the role of detection tools that, if implemented effectively, ensure the identification of threats and therefore proper risk management. You have to be able to detect any anomalies or deviant activity internally, to have a preventive approach to attacks and optimize your IT system. But to achieve this, you first have to understand and completely master the IT system, you need to thoroughly know the 'normal' activity of the company', says Philip Dann, Head of Risk and Business Advisory of EBRC (pictured).
