Capgemini announced today the launch of its next-generation of Cyber Defense Centers (CDCs) including expanded intelligent security analytics using Microsoft Azure Sentinel. As part of its plan to continuously augment its cybersecurity solutions, Capgemini has also joined the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA), an ecosystem of independent software vendors and managed security service providers, that have integrated their solutions with Microsoft Security, to better defend against a world of increasing cybersecurity threats.
“With more organizations embracing digital transformation across all areas of their business, the overall number of threats is increasing,” comments Thierry Daumas, Head of Projects & Consulting, Cloud Infrastructure Services and Global Offer Lead Cybersecurity at Capgemini. “At Capgemini we are continuously augmenting our security capabilities and welcomed the invitation to join the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association, to help bolster cybersecurity for clients and tackle the rising number of malicious cyberattacks globally. MISA membership, and our use of Microsoft Azure Sentinel for expanded intelligent security analytics, complements our extensive collaboration of more than 20 years with Microsoft, driving cloud transformation with joint enterprise customers worldwide.”
Tailored to client’s specific security challenges, Capgemini’s Cyber Defense Center solution orchestrates the multiple roles, processes and technology needed to enable efficient incident detection, analysis and response.
Simon Collins, Director, Head of Cybersecurity at Allianz Global Investment says: ‘’Microsoft Azure Sentinel provides us integration with a variety of available security tools within Azure and the extended Microsoft security platform. Together with Capgemini’s Cyber Defense Center we have built a comprehensive monitoring platform for intelligent security analytics at scale and with advanced investigation capabilities. We saw strong commitment from Capgemini to help us reach a cost effective, flexible and scalable solution.’’
Scalable and cloud-native, Azure Sentinel and its powerful intelligent security analytics feature allows Capgemini’s next-generation of CDCs to offer embedded machine learning; cloud native storage and elasticity; and advanced hunting and investigation of capabilities to maximize analyst efficiency, reduce mean time to recover (MTTR), and economically scale to address ever increasing demands.
Membership in the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association
Joining the core ecosystem of security specialists reinforces further the capabilities of Capgemini’s Cyber Defense Center solution to tackle security challenges and combat the rapidly evolving complexity of today’s threats.
Microsoft launched MISA to enable partners to share insights and drive more integrated strategies and solutions to help clients to predict, detect, and respond to security threats faster. Membership is by invitation only, with Microsoft reaching out to a select core group of managed security service providers from across the cybersecurity industry. Each member brings their own unique expertise.
“We are pleased to have Capgemini join the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA). By including our strategic Managed Security Services Providers (MSSPs) in MISA, we help enable further collaboration between cybersecurity industry leaders in protecting and supporting our joint customers,” said Mandana Javaheri, Global Director, Security, Compliance, and Identity Partner Development at Microsoft.
