Our Platinum Tier Managed Cyber Security services are based on feedback from several enterprise customers"
“Larger enterprises are faced with the dual challenges of managing more remote staff while still trying to deliver the core IT projects that are critical to the business. Our Platinum Tier Managed Cyber Security services are based on feedback from several enterprise customers around what they need - and is effectively a formalisation of a number of disparate services that we have been delivering successfully for many years”, says Ashok Thomas, CEO for NetUtils.
Critical digitisation projects
“When you look at the overall cost and especially when you factor in our 24/7 SOC capability, our Platinum service will typically save enterprises with a 1000 staff or more, hundreds of thousands of pounds each year in operational cyber security costs - with the assurance of transparent SLA’s and round the clock expertise.”
The new Platinum tier managed security services also aim to address several challenges that have accelerated due to the ongoing pandemic including critical digitisation projects, reduction in IT budgets and ongoing cyber security skills shortage.
