Herndon, VA – September, 2021 – ePlus inc. (NASDAQ NGS: PLUS – news) today announced that its London-based subsidiary, IGXGlobal UK Limited, has expanded its Security Services portfolio to include a new Managed Detection and Response (MDR) offering that will help customers across Europe defend against growing cyber-threats.
The addition of MDR services to IGXGlobal’s roster will provide enterprise clients with access to technology that can enhance protection of their organizations with around-the-clock security monitoring and alerting, threat detection, and incident management from global managed security operations centers. In the face of a growing cyber skills gap and on-going budget constraints, the MDR service will enable IGXGlobal customers to more quickly and easily implement technology and expertise that allows them to be proactive and responsive to threats.
“As cyber security threats become increasingly complex and evasive of traditional security controls, many organizations lack the resources and tooling to monitor and respond to these security threats,” said Richard Dunthorne, services director of IGXGlobal. “IGXGlobal now has the ability to provide customers with next generation security technology, including machine learning and behavior analytics, threat intelligence, AI-based threat models and business context modelling, to help identify and analyze threats more efficiently for a quicker and more comprehensive response.”
IGXGlobal will work in collaboration with Proficio, a long-standing and trusted partner of ePlus Technology, to provide and accelerate the use of their MDR security technology in key European markets.
“We are excited to expand our successful partnership with ePlus and join together with IGXGlobal to provide this service,” said Tim Capps, managing director, EMEA for Proficio. “IGXGlobal has a well-established name in the technology sector and is trusted by large corporate and public sector organizations for their expertise and technical capabilities. As the need for cybersecurity continues to grow, we are pleased to enter into this strategic relationship to accelerate our market leadership, expand our coverage, and help organizations reduce their business risk.”
Organizations based in Europe who would like to learn more about protecting their business with MDR are asked to complete and submit an online form.
