O2 UK adds new enterprise security services with BAE Systems deal

O2, cyber security

O2 UK has signed a deal with BAE Systems to provide a new end-to-end security service for its enterprise customers.

The Telefónica-owned mobile operator will offer the “device to cloud” proposition either as a standalone service or in conjunction with its Gateway network that combines mobile, fixed and Wi-Fi.

O2 UK customers will have access to the Managed Security Service – which includes preparation, management, monitoring, detection and response capabilities – and Cyber Technical Service capabilities – which provides threat intelligence, penetration testing and emergency response.

Commenting on the partnership, Billy D’Arcy, Managing Director, Enterprise & Public Sector Business, Telefónica O2 UK said: “The ever-changing cyber landscape means businesses need to be at the forefront of security research and development to help protect their customers in the best way possible.

“Our customers tell us that cyber crime is among their top security concerns.

“This partnership enables us to expand our security offering, providing access to BAE Systems unparalleled cyber security expertise to help customers further mitigate risk, prevent fraud and provide more security for their own customers.”

Scott Mcvicar, General Manager EMEA, BAE Systems Applied Intelligence, said: “Our enterprise managed security solution protects any internet enabled device, and always has a human in the loop when it comes to threat detection and remediation.

“This ensures we can help to identify threats for O2 customers before they become business critical issues.”

BAE Systems also works with Vodafone and is one of the partners involved in Vodafone’s new Enterprise Security Services division, unveiled last year.
