Orange has invested an undisclosed sum in enterprise-focused cyber security firm SecBi.

The France-based operator’s Digital Ventures arm is one of three companies to have taken part in a funding round for the Israel-based start up, which was founded in 2014.

SecBi’s software automates threat detection and incident investigation by using proprietary machine learning technology to analyse network security log data.

The company’s Co-Founder and CTO Alex Vaystikh said: “We’re developing cutting edge technology that enables businesses to investigate and mitigate threats more quickly and accurately – and with a lot less headache.

“How? By finding threats that other solutions miss, and delivering a full narrative and incident report that includes all affected users, domains, assets and more.”

In common with other telcos, Orange is looking to boost its offering to enterprises as security rises up the corporate agenda.

Pierre Louette, Orange’s Deputy CEO and President of Orange Digital Ventures, said: “As cyber threats are expanding even more rapidly both in volume and sophistication, cybersecurity is becoming a top concern and priority for businesses.

“We believe that SecBI’s capacity to use fragments of data to produce a full end-to-end story representing a complete incident is unique.

“SecBI’s threat detection system reduces breach response time and optimizes mitigation of the most advanced threats. This is the kind of solution our customers are waiting for.”

Earlier this year, Orange acquired France-based IT security firm Lexsi.
