KHIPU’s ‘Secure The Data Centre’ Initiative

Affordable SOC services for ‘around the clock’ Cyber Threat Protection and Prevention

Working in partnership with our customers to understand their operational challenges and ever-evolving requirements for 24x7x365 cyber threat monitoring, response and protection, we have launched our ‘Secure the Data Centre’ initiative.

Designed to help organisations of all types and sizes to implement a quick and affordable SOC service, the initiative is a response to the increasing complexity of cyber threats facing modern businesses, as well as the many financial and operational hurdles to implementing an on-premises SOC solution.

Starting at just R470,000.00 per year, Secure the Data Centre is ideal for organisations that are either about to start their 24x7x365 SOC journey or are seeking to expand their existing cyber security operations and capabilities.

Why consider a 24x7x365 Cyber Threat Monitoring, Response & Protection solution?

Around the clock cyber threat monitoring, alerting, response and protection is now a necessity for businesses and organisations the world over. Cyber-attacks continue to negatively impact organisations irrespective of the industry in which they operate, their size or annual turnover.

The uncomfortable reality is that, without a sufficient SOC operation, whether outsourced or on-premises, it is impossible to remain protected against the ever-changing cyber threat landscape.

Through regular communication with our customers in both South Africa and the United Kingdom, we understand the many challenges and barriers to implementing a fully operational SOC. From resources and recruitment to budgets and training, today’s IT departments are used to doing more with less, but many find the prospect of around -the-clock cyber-threat monitoring, detection and response a step too far.

Without an up-to-date and accurate picture of ever-present cyber-threats, whether endpoint, network and/or cloud related, in addition to an absence of expertise in breach response protocol, the consequences of a successful attack can be far-reaching.

    “After an extensive review of the market and available Security Operation Centre (SOC) services, we chose KHIPU due to their experience within the sector and capabilities to be able to monitor, detect, protect and prevent threats 24x7x365 across our multi-campus estate. Using the HEITSA Framework made the overall investment significantly lower to the other service provider offerings that we considered.”

Their service also includes 24x7x365 incident response, a mandatory requirement from us to ensure our environment has complete coverage throughout the day and night. We look forward to a successful partnership with KHIPU, sharing our experiences with similar institutions across the sector”.
