The Managed Detection and Response (MDR) division of Bradford-based cyber security services provider, ECSC, has won two contracts for a major UK charity and a national leisure group, reports The Business Desk.
The contracts – which are both for an initial three year period – have a combined value in excess of half-a-million pounds. The company will be providing cyber security monitoring, detection and response from its UK and Australia Security Operations Centres and will be employing its Kepler Artificial Intelligence technology.
Ian Mann, CEO of ECSC, remarked: “We are delighted to announce two further significant contract wins for our MDR division across two diverse sectors. The first client is a service extension, originating from our established Partner Programme, and the second is a new client win.
“These new contracts demonstrate the continued resilience of the long-established MDR service that grew strongly throughout 2020 and has continued to grow in 2021. ECSC’s MDR services allow clients to receive immediate alerts to potential incidents, and combine expert advice, incident response and containment.
“Speed of response on a 24/7 basis helps clients prevent breaches escalating into damaging ransomware or loss of personal data, which can potentially lead to large fines under UK GDPR legislation.
“In terms of the continued expansion of the Assurance Division, we are pleased that four of the new clients gained in January 2021 were from our expanding Partner Programme.”
