1 minute, 29 seconds Read

British reseller SCC has opened a new advanced security operations centre (SOC) at its international headquarters in Birmingham. 

In the past 12 months, SCC has made a multi-million-pound investment in creating a dedicated cyber division, building on its datacentre operation and including more than 30 new jobs across operations, AI, automation, technical architecture, product development, and sales.

The new SOC is accredited by CREST and provides a central base in the UK for the growing cyber operations team. 

SCC hopes it will enhance its ability to monitor, prevent, detect, investigate, and respond to global cyber threats around the clock across customers’ attack surfaces.

Steve Harrison, cyber operations director at SCC, said: “Our customers rely on SCC’s specialist cyber expertise to ensure they can focus on running their businesses safely, against a backdrop of sophisticated and ever-increasing cyber threats. 

“Our investment in the cyber division underlines our commitment to our customers.

“The opening of our new SOC is the latest milestone on our growth journey, with plans to keep adding services and people to the cyber team. 

“This in turn will keep creating new opportunities for our customers to stay better protected from unprecedented challenges in cyber security.”

SCC has already launched five new cyber security services this year, with new solutions in development.

As a result of the integration between Microsoft and SCC’s new managed extended detection and response (MXDR) service, SCC was recently announced as member of Microsoft Intelligent Security Association (MISA), an ecosystem of ISVs and MSSPs that have integrated their solutions with Microsoft’s security technology.

SCC also recently announced its third acquisition in 12 months with its takeover of Microsoft expert Resonate.

Mainly operating in the UK and Slovakia, the acquisition hones in on the enterprise space and counts the energy, retail and manufacturing sectors as its key verticals.
