BT has launched an advanced security platform aimed at protecting government organisations and enterprises from cyber threats.

BT Assure Cyber has a “super correlation” engine that pro-actively searches for anomalies within network traffic to monitor, detect and provide protection against attacks, BT said.

The platform uses an algorithm that is able to put threats into context based of severity and complexity, allowing organisations to determine how serious a particular attack may be and enabling them to act accordingly.

BT said it also takes into account the number of defensive layers between the attacker and the asset being targeted and allows organisations to act on vulnerabilities immediately, rather than in a matter of days or weeks.

BT Assure Cyber has been designed to be scalable for organisations “with a few hundred endpoints to tens of thousands” and is available worldwide.

It follows the recent launch of a threat-monitoring service for enterprises by the UK incumbent.

Mark Hughes, president of BT Security, warned that companies faced a “multiplicity of new security risks” due to cloud computing and mobile devices.

He said: “Organic growth, mergers and acquisitions, changes in suppliers and adoption of new technologies make it increasingly difficult to assess an organisation’s exposure to the global cyber threat landscape.

“That changing business environment can hinder the understanding of security posture, including technical and non-technical procedures and controls that protect an organisation from internal and external threats.

“As innovation in technology accelerates, so must innovation and investment in the security controls that protect sensitive corporate assets from cyber-attack.

“Helping organisations master that changing cyber threat landscape is at the core of the BT Assure Cyber proposition. It is all about rethinking the risk.”
