Make security visible in real time
Our unique security information and event management (SIEM) service collects and analyses security information in real time from across your organisation. A combination of powerful proprietary technologies and human intelligence helps to prevent attacks on your network, and protect your commercially sensitive information.
Assure Threat Monitoring and Assure Analytics tells you:
- what’s really on your network, who’s using it, and whether or not your network’s at risk
- how well your actual network usage matches your policy requirements
- how to build an incident response process
- how to satisfy auditors and regulators that you’re performing enough due diligence
- who’s attacking you, and how hard they’re trying
- how well-engineered your network is, and what you can do to improve it
- where the weak spots are in your network and applications and what you can do to fix them.
Assure Threat Monitoring benefits
Enhanced network security - BT’s security analysts have seen varied attacks across hundreds of major networks so we know exactly what to look for when monitoring networks.
IT workload reduction – The threat monitoring technology filters false positives. This saves time by ensuring a customer’s security team only responds to genuine threats and enables them to focus instead on more strategic security strategies.
Reduced liability - Network monitoring reduces risk while the quality of recorded information helps customers comply with auditing and accountability standards, protecting against financial losses.
Ensure data protection - Collecting and analysing network information to classify it according to the risk it represents, helps customers safeguard their business-critical data.
Support compliance – BT’s reporting features provide all the network data and security information in a single portal, helping customers comply with regulations and audit processes.

BT's Security CEO on the Intel partnership.
Mark Hughes shares overview of BT’s partnership with Intel Security.
Security and compliance requires specialised expertise, and it makes more sense to outsource that so my staff can stay focused on the core business objectives. BT can survey all the potential threats worldwide and provide a much wider, more current view of the threats. That’s something we can’t do as efficiently, given our current staff levels.”
