BT and Google Cloud Advance Cybersecurity With New Partnership

Must read

BT announces a new strategic security partnership with Google Cloud, targeting a range of joint innovation opportunities.

BT and Google Cloud announced a new partnership focusing on an enhanced commitment to cybersecurity innovation. Serving customers in more than 180 countries and with a team of 3,000 security professionals, BT works with the security industry’s leading vendors to provide managed security solutions to private and public sector organizations worldwide.

As part of the partnership, BT will become a managed services delivery partner for Google’s Autonomic Security Operations (ASO) offering based on Google Chronicle. ASO is a holistic framework that combines principles, practices, and tools that enable organizations to take an adaptive and automated approach to threat management. Underpinned by Chronicle’s petabytes scale detection, a data lake powered by Google Cloud’s data and analytics platform BigQuery, and rich, compelling analytics via Looker, the solution decreases the time to detect and respond to threats—which is essential in the face of the increasing volume and complexity of cyber-attacks.

Customers will benefit from the new partnership by gaining the technological capabilities of Google Chronicle, combined with BT’s track record of delivering cybersecurity services to organizations with complex estates and requirements. Customers will be supported by experts from BT’s Security Advisory Services team, who leverage BT’s deep experience in security operations and integration to help organizations ensure that they have optimized their wider security architecture to align with their priorities and ambitions fully.

“Combining Google Chronicle’s capabilities with BT’s view of global networks and experience providing managed security services is a really exciting prospect. The ASO solution will help our customers to rapidly identify risks and automatically enhance their cyber defenses—providing the speed that’s essential to combat cyber-attacks. It represents the first step in our partnership with Google Cloud on cybersecurity, with both companies committed to providing innovations and solutions that help organizations stay ahead of an increasingly threatening cyber threat landscape,” said Tris Morgan, Managing Director of security at BT.

“Our partnership brings the best of BT’s experience in deploying big data-based security platforms with Google Cloud’s innovative security capabilities to help our multinational customers transform their approaches to cyber risk management in the face of a rapidly changing threat landscape,” said Magali Bohn, Global Director, Partnerships & Channels at Google Cloud Security.

The partnership builds on BT Group and Google’s existing relationship to house BT Group’s data in Google Cloud to support its analytics and AI ambitions. BT and Google Cloud will also seek to incorporate solutions from Mandiant, a market leader in threat intelligence solutions acquired by Google in 2022, as an additional partnership aspect. Finally, BT is working with Google Cloud to trial Google’s Vertex AI and Duet AI capabilities.
