ITC Secure launches Healthcare Dome with Government of Jersey to protect the UK healthcare sector

ITC Secure (ITC), the leading managed security services provider (MSSP), specialist cyber advisory firm and Microsoft Gold partner, today announced the Government of Jersey as the first managed customer to be onboarded into the UK’s first Healthcare Dome, powered by IronNet Cybersecurity’s IronDome solution. This initiative was funded by The Cyber Alliance to Defend our Healthcare.

Following a surge in cyber attacks on UK healthcare systems, providers and laboratories, C5 Capital (C5) formed an alliance of cyber professionals to offer healthcare organisations in the UK, Europe and USA with free access to world-class cyber security solutions. The Cyber Alliance to Defend our Healthcare operates in the UK, Europe and the USA and has 35 cyber security firms who have pledged their support to the industry.

André Pienaar, Founder, C5 Capital said, “The Cyber Alliance came together during Covid19 as a fast-growing cyber security volunteer force assembled in peacetime to protect frontline healthcare workers and the brilliant organisations handling the research and distribution of the vaccine. The new Healthcare Dome based on IronNet’s Collective Defence solution helps to protect the healthcare sector worldwide. We are delighted that the UK and the Government of Jersey have now joined the Healthcare Dome as we go into the critical phase of vaccine distribution worldwide.”

ITC is a proud member of The Cyber Alliance to Defend our Healthcare and leads the rapid response capability, including a Collective Defence framework for members through the Healthcare Dome to collaborate and share cyber threat detections and related information in real time and at machine speed.

Delivered, managed and supported 24 hours a day by ITC’s Security Operations Centre based in London, the solution utilises IronNet’s information sharing technology, IronDome, which brings the first Collective Defence capability to the healthcare industry. The platform, which draws on behavioural analytics and human insights, integrates into ITC’s existing solutions powered by Microsoft, so participants can benefit from end-to-end cyber security.

This announcement formalises the launch of the first UK Healthcare Dome as a Collective Defence framework dedicated to the healthcare sector, with the Government of Jersey successfully onboarded as ITC’s flagship managed customer.

Stuart Powell, CISO, Government of Jersey said, “This initiative is a welcome addition to our security operations, particularly as healthcare providers continue to be targeted by cyber criminals. With ITC’s technical expertise through The Cyber Alliance we are delighted to unlock first class collective threat intelligence and protection for our island’s Health Service.”

Arno Robbertse, Chief Executive, ITC Secure said, “The volume of cyber attacks on our healthcare sector and its supply chain has increased exponentially since February of this year. We want to protect these organisations who are working at the forefront of the epidemic, so they can focus on their mission of defending our communities and preserving the health of our fellow citizens.”

GEN (Ret.) Keith Alexander, co-CEO and Founder, IronNet said, “The Government of Jersey’s commitment to both The Cyber Alliance and the UK Healthcare Dome is evidence of its leadership’s innovative approach to cybersecurity. With ITC’s support, the level of detection and prevention they will get from the unique threat intelligence and insight sharing in IronNet’s Collective Defence platform will give the island’s healthcare system a greater sense of security and allow them to focus on critical care.”

ITC and the Government of Jersey have been working in close collaboration with ITC’s exclusive partner in the Channel Islands, JT Group. The Government of Jersey is the overarching entity of the Health Ministry of Jersey, providing medical services to the islanders of Jersey.

Daragh McDermott, Managing Director, JT Group said, “We are delighted that JT is able to share a key role alongside ITC in protecting government healthcare services from cyber threats and defending their critical systems throughout the current crisis and beyond.”

BlueVoyant Acquires Managed Sentinel To Create End-to-End Services Portfolio For Microsoft Security Technologies

– Acquisition strengthens BlueVoyant’s ability to serve Microsoft customers; Managed Sentinel will continue to focus on deployment of Azure Sentinel and Microsoft Defender, bolstered by BlueVoyant’s MDR capabilities.

BlueVoyant, a cybersecurity services company, today announced that it has acquired Managed Sentinel, a global leader in deployment and management of Microsoft’s cloud-native SIEM, Azure Sentinel and Microsoft’s XDR platform, Microsoft Defender.

Organizations are increasingly looking for cloud-native security solutions. With the shift towards Extended Detection and Response (XDR) as customers demand more response capabilities beyond endpoint, as well as the drive to consolidate vendors and service providers, the acquisition of Managed Sentinel complements BlueVoyant’s managed detection and response (MDR) for Azure Sentinel and Microsoft Defender.

Working alongside BlueVoyant, Managed Sentinel strengthens BlueVoyant’s ability to better serve Microsoft customers globally, while enabling Managed Sentinel to leverage BlueVoyant’s threat intelligence and MDR capabilities. This allows both BlueVoyant and Managed Sentinel to deliver full-service offerings around Microsoft security technologies, from customized deployments to 24/7 Security Operations.

“The Microsoft partner ecosystem has hundreds of organizations that can implement and transact Microsoft technologies, but very few have security expertise. Managed Sentinel possesses world-class expertise and is a leading Azure Sentinel deployment provider, having served clients all over the world,” said Milan Patel, Global Head of Managed Security Services (MSS) at BlueVoyant. “Combining Managed Sentinel’s Azure Sentinel deployment expertise with BlueVoyant’s MDR capabilities will help customers operationalize and maximize Microsoft security technologies to realize the true business value of adopting cybersecurity through a managed service model.”

Jim Rosenthal, CEO of BlueVoyant, said: “We are very excited that Managed Sentinel’s Microsoft expertise and BlueVoyant’s industry-leading capabilities will continue to consolidate a position of excellence in the market.”

Marius Mocanu, CEO of Managed Sentinel, adds, “The acquisition of Managed Sentinel by BlueVoyant, combines our Azure Security expertise with BlueVoyant’s incredible proprietary threat intelligence and Managed Security Services, enabling customers to receive an enhanced solution which reduces operational and infrastructure costs.”

Founded in 2019 by Marius Mocanu and Adrian Grigorof in Canada, Managed Sentinel has best-in-class experience in deploying hybrid infrastructures, and integrating on-premise, private and public cloud security controls. As a Microsoft Gold Certified partner, Managed Sentinel has established a close working relationship with Microsoft and earned the highest standards of Microsoft’s widely recognized partnership.

BlueVoyant MDR provides real-time and customized threat response and remediation – terminating malicious processes, isolating devices, and manually preventing persistence and lateral movement associated with sophisticated attacks. BlueVoyant incorporates client-driven rules of engagement (ROE) enabling immediate, decisive action to stop threats that could cripple a network versus non-critical events where a lower-tiered response may be appropriate. Microsoft Azure Sentinel and Microsoft Defender allows BlueVoyant MDR to gain unparalleled and integrated visibility and response across endpoints, identities, e-mail, and cloud workloads.

In addition to addressing current industry trends driven by mandates to comply with regulatory and data protection laws, sophisticated attacks and budget constraints, the new MDR service will support businesses through their cloud digital transformation initiatives, focussing on a more proactive approach to security, with a faster-to-deploy solution, as more enterprises migrate to perimeter-less security.

“Security is so important to us and our clients, even more so now given the increasingly digital nature of how we work. Moving to an MDR service with our long term security partner ITC will help us step up to the next level of protection in this ever challenging area, and I’m really excited to see the results start to bear fruit for us,” said Orlando Milford, CIO, Oxera Consulting LLP.
