Nowcomm gets serious about cyber security with AT&T and Cybsafe

Networking, collaboration and security technology specialist Nowcomm has formed two new partnerships in the cybersecurity sector.

The company has announced partnerships with AT&T Cybersecurity, previously AlienVault, and human cyber risk management platform Cybsafe, adding to the Cisco Gold partner’s existing portfolio, which includes Cisco cybersecurity solutions such as Cisco Umbrella and Cisco Meraki.

Through its partnership with AT&T Cybersecurity, Nowcomm will provide customers with access to an open source security information and event management system that simplifies the management of compliance and security, with a unified platform for all security monitoring and threat response.

Meanwhile, Cybsafe’s risk management platform will enable Nowcomm customers to improve the cybersecurity behaviours of their staff, by measuring current attitudes, developing metrics for cyber risk decisions, and identifying the most relevant areas for education and development.

The new partnerships follow a bumper few months for Nowcomm. As well as expanding its cybersecurity services, the company has also developed a collaboration and unified communications portfolio to include Cisco Webex Calling as a complete subscription offer.

Richard Mcloughlin, CEO of Nowcomm, said: “Every organisation today, no matter how big or small the sector they operate in, must take cybersecurity seriously. From highly sophisticated criminals seeking to hold businesses to ransom or steal highly sensitive information, to digital vandals who simply want to cause as much disruption as possible, the cyberthreats we face are diverse and dangerous.

“We therefore want to build the most powerful ecosystem of cybersecurity partners we can, so that we can present our customers with a really rich and effective array of security tools, platforms and processes.

“AT&T Cybersecurity and Cybsafe are leaders in their fields. By partnering with them, we will be able to offer our clients both an intuitive platform for managing multiple different cybersecurity functions, and a human-centred approach to security management, focusing on the skills, behaviours and attitudes of the workforce. Both organisations are fantastic additions to the Nowcomm partner roster.”
