Datapac enhances cybersecurity offering with new Managed Threat Ops service

  • Datapac, Ireland’s leading technology solutions and services provider, is today announcing the launch of its new Managed Threat Ops service. The service, powered by industry-leading technology platforms, provides 24/7/365 cyberthreat hunting, response, and neutralisation to stop cybersecurity incidents in their tracks.

    The addition of the Managed Threat Ops service to Datapac’s managed services portfolio is expected to be a key contributor to an anticipated 15% increase in the organisation’s annual managed services revenue for the year ahead. With a focus on meeting organisations where they’re at, the Managed Threat Ops service is uniquely positioned to provide support to businesses of all sizes, including single-site SMBs as well as national and multinational enterprises.

    The service enables organisations to change the way they approach cybersecurity, allowing them to adopt a proactive mindset in a way that many organisations, both large and small, may have been unable to before due to staffing and other resource limitations. The service actively monitors for and mitigates potential threats that may bypass traditional cybersecurity tools, even outside of standard working hours.

    The Managed Threat Ops service provides a means for the average business to address the detection and response functions of their cybersecurity. Due to their nature, namely a reliance on both technology and a skilled team of experts to continuously monitor alerts and notifications from various security products, these functions have historically been under-developed in many organisations.

    The robust combination of human-led expertise and AI acceleration within the Managed Threat Ops service enriches and strengthens the existing IT and security capabilities of organisations. This comprehensive approach not only enhances the overall security posture but also liberates critical resources for strategic projects and initiatives that drive additional value.

    The service can contribute to enhanced ROI on existing cybersecurity investments, such as endpoint protection, which is traditionally reliant on the skills and expertise of the in-house team continuously monitoring for potential threats. With its cost-effective nature, this solution offers flexibility and scalability, ensuring seamless alignment with the evolving needs and growth of businesses.

    Gartner predicts that by 2025, 60% of organisations will have adopted a managed detection and response (MDR) service. The Datapac Managed Threat Ops service streamlines the adoption process, making it easy for organisations of all sizes to avail of the highest level of protection.

    Karen O’Connor, General Manager, Datapac said: “As the technology landscape continues to evolve, we are seeing a rise in the scope and complexity of advanced cyberthreats which can target organisations of all sizes. Smaller organisations are being increasingly targeted due to the acceleration of the digital workplace, and they can no longer rely on their smaller size and relative obscurity as a shield to cyber criminals. By leveraging the power of industry-leading technology platforms, the new Managed Threat Ops service aims to address this growing threat landscape and democratise fully managed cybersecurity.

    “It can not only scale at pace with the evolving requirements of rapidly growing SMBs but can also support the unique requirements of enterprise-grade organisations. In the modern digital age, an organisation’s IT infrastructure is its beating heart, driving innovation and progress, and highly secure data is one of its most valuable assets. However, the ability to proactively detect and mitigate threats 24/7 represents an untapped layer of cyber defence for many organisations, and our aim is to address this gap with this new service.”
