Datacentrix, a high performing and secure ICT solutions provider, has joined Game Changers, the newest partner tier announced recently by Cybereason, creator of the leading Cyber Defense Platform, as a level for its most strategic partners.

Datacentrix will also be incorporating Cybereason technology into its industry-leading next-generation security operations centre (SOC), which monitors and defends joint customers’ ICT environments in real-time against any potential security threats.

“The addition of Cybereason’s flagship Cyber Defense Platform to our SOC offering will include endpoint detection and response (EDR), next-generation anti-virus (NGAV), threat intelligence and active monitoring services. We are pleased to partner with Cybereason as a company that is taking a new approach to cyber security, helping us to provide added value to local customers in their fight against increasingly sophisticated cyber security risks and threats,” said Wayne Olsen, Datacentrix security business unit manager.

Datacentrix’s SOC technology is based on state-of-the-art security information and event management (SIEM) and security orchestration, automation and response (SOAR) technologies that offer a powerful analytical platform used to simplify compliance, enhance security and risk mitigation on a 24x7x365 basis.

Furthermore, Datacentrix has become a Cybereason MDR-in-a-Box (managed detection and response) partner, which focuses on the delivery of its new software as a service (SaaS) driven cyber security solutions. The MDR-in-a-Box programme is designed to help strategic partners increase market share through the delivery of new SaaS driven cyber security solutions. By leveraging the Cyber Defense Platform and programme approach, partners can fast-track new, high-demand service offerings and provide their customers with a holistic managed solution that addresses their specific needs.

“Cybereason is thrilled to partner with Datacentrix and, by powering their new, next-gen SOC, local analysts will see dramatic decreases in ‘false positive’ data analysis requirements. In addition, it provides enhanced time-to-detection and detection accuracy, as well as offering hunting and remote incidence response (IR) capabilities,” commented Jacques van der Merwe, senior director, Cybereason.

“The SOC is able to provide clients with situational awareness in real-time, can access information across a variety of devices (firewalls, anti-virus and intrusion detection systems for instance), normalises and correlates the information, and provides near-live reporting, enabling timeous response,” added Olsen.
