Logicalis, an international IT solutions and managed services provider, is delighted to announce it has been selected to be the service delivery partner of choice by Liquid Telecom, to provide cyber security services to its customers across South Africa and the wider African region.

Through this partnership, Liquid Telecom has today launched a catalogue of packaged solutions, powered and developed by Logicalis SA.

There are three major service offerings available to Liquid Telecom customers, including:

  • Security consulting services;
  • Managed security services; and
  • Cyber defence services.

Caesar Tonkin, Logicalis CISO, explains: “We are confident that this partnership will augment how cyber security services and managed security service delivery add value to how CISOs and CIOs better manage business risk and their companies' threat landscape.” Tonkin goes on to say: “This partnership will optimise how we help customers to achieve value from their digitalisation and even cloud strategy – and be more cyber resilient along this journey.”

Logicalis brings extensive knowledge and experience to the table. The Logicalis SOC services and managed security services, C-Suite, will have raised visibility on their organisation's threat and risk posture, and risk-based prioritised alerts, underpinned by quantifiable security operations centre (SOC) metrics and SLA performance. Based on the NIST Cyber Security Framework and MITRE ATT&CK Framework in the Logicalis SOC platforms, C-Suite will have increased visibility to detect threats and enhanced capabilities to react to and proactively hunt for malware threats, combined with automated response.

David Behr, Liquid Telecom Chief Digital Officer, says: “At Liquid Telecom, we pride ourselves on ensuring that our customers get the best services and solutions, meaning we need to partner with the best as we extend our offering in the cyber security space. Logicalis was the obvious choice for us as we venture to expand our offering in the cyber security industry not only for their wide range of solutions and products, but also for their global reach." Behr adds: “With this partnership, we offer our customers in the SMB and enterprise space industry expertise combined with our local insights as we secure businesses, networks and data centres.”
