Copenhagen, Denmark – June 5, 2018
Outpost24, an innovator in identifying and managing cyber security exposure, announced today they will expand their relationship with BAE Systems Applied Intelligence. The companies will build on their long-standing relationship by enabling BAE Systems cyber business unit to offer a wide range of cyber security assessment services. These services are delivered under a flexible business model designed to match a Managed Security Service Provider business to drive competitive advantage.
Organizations around the world are challenged to keep up with rapidly evolving security requirements in the face of changing technology and limitations of security expertise and skilled staff. To address this issue many of today’s organisations are turning to Managed Security Service Providers (MSSPs) and outsourcing a variety of cyber security assessment, monitoring and alerting functions. According to Gartner, “the MSS market is growing at a healthy double digit rate” and “demand is driven by a variety of factors such as security staffing challenges and budget shortages, evolving compliance and reporting requirements, and expansion of security event monitoring into new domains.” (Gartner Magic Quadrant for Managed Security Services Worldwide, February 27, 2018.) These MSSP firms typically develop a portfolio of services by wrapping services around capabilities offered by key technology partners.
Outpost24 has developed a full-stack approach to assessing cyber security exposure in all key technology assets – devices, networks, clouds, applications, data, and users. With a wide array of coordinated tools, an MSSP can select and deliver the most essential components to match the risk profile for each of their clients. Assessing cyber security exposure across all assets, in the same way an external attacker would, enables a more holistic view of weaknesses. This broader view provides better guidance for prioritization of essential remediations and mitigations. Under Outpost24’s MSSP business model, the MSSP has full control to provision, operate, and decommission services for their users at will, with optimal cost efficiency.
“We’re excited to develop on our long-standing relationship with BAE Systems as they build momentum in the MSSP market across all geographic regions,” stated Martin Henricson, CEO for Outpost24. “We’ve been working hard to build a unique combination of cyber security assessment capabilities that address all key assets from infrastructure and cloud to applications and data, as well as a business model that gives a competitive edge to MSSPs. We believe in the power of this relationship, to enable BAE System Applied Intelligence to help their customers achieve a higher level of security, and to improve their competitive posture at the same time.
“From our experience and competitive insight in the security market, we see the Outpost24 solution as innovative and strong fit for the direction of our business,” said James Hatch, Director of Cyber Services at BAE Systems Applied Intelligence. “The Outpost24 solution gives us new ways to assess our client’s full stack cyber security exposure and recommend a course of action to minimize business risk. We continue to be impressed with the Outpost24 team’s responsiveness, security talent, and technology trajectory. The continued collaboration helps us prepare our clients for a secure future.”
