Press release: BT strengthens global defense against growing cyber security threats with Cisco FirePOWER solution
DC15-234 (08 June 2015)
BT Assure enhanced with the incorporation of Cisco FirePOWER Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention solution
BT today announced that it is incorporating Cisco FirePOWER™ Next-Generation Intrusion Prevention System (NGIPS) into the BT Assure portfolio of managed security services, further strengthening data and systems protection for BT customers.
Safeguarding network assets and data is a challenge for global businesses of all sizes facing the exponential growth in cyber security risks. Legacy systems are unable to provide full visibility into the network layers and IT resources of today’s business environments. In addition, they cannot put into context the information required to understand the scale and impact of potential security threats.
Cisco FirePOWER NGIPS gives organizations detailed visibility into all of their network layers. It gives an organization true visibility and contextual awareness of users, infrastructure and applications and protects the network against known and unknown threats before, during and after an attack.
Mark Hughes, president of BT Security, said: “When it comes to security, it is all about rethinking the risk. Organizations need new technologies to combat rapidly evolving cyber threats. We work with world class partners to strengthen our security portfolio and help organizations master this ever changing landscape. Cisco’s FirePOWER NGIPS brings a very strong additional capability to the arsenal of security solutions that BT customers can deploy to protect their critical assets and be prepared for the future.”
BT’s purpose is to use the power of communications to make a better world. It is one of the world’s leading providers of communications services and solutions, serving customers in more than 170 countries. Its principal activities include the provision of networked IT services globally; local, national and international telecommunications services to its customers for use at home, at work and on the move; broadband, TV and internet products and services; and converged fixed/mobile products and services. BT consists principally of five customer-facing lines of business: BT Global Services, BT Business, BT Consumer, BT Wholesale and Openreach.
For the year ended 31 March 2015, BT Group’s reported revenue was £17,979m with reported profit before taxation of £2,645m.
British Telecommunications plc (BT) is a wholly-owned subsidiary of BT Group plc and encompasses virtually all businesses and assets of the BT Group. BT Group plc is listed on stock exchanges in London and New York.
