Logicalis launches new 'cyber attack' service


Logicalis has partnered with a leading cybersecurity company to launch a new service allowing businesses to test their security by 'attacking' it, which will be rolled out across the UK.

Launched from Logicalis Jersey-based security operations centre, the partnership with (BAS) XM Cyber - leaders in cyber breach and attack simulation - is later expected to be launched to a global market.

Known in the cyber security industry as 'purple teaming', the service is a combined approach to testing (known as 'red teaming') and network defence ('blue teaming') designed to ensure a collaborative approach to cyber security. It is a safe way for businesses to test their procedures by securely ‘attacking’ the system and finding out where any vulnerabilities lie.

The HaXM platform combines continuous and automatic red and blue team processes so that organisations are always one step ahead of an attack.

As such, Logicalis’ Purple Teaming Service will rapidly uncover all hidden attack possibilities within users’ networks before suggesting ways to remedy any issues.

“Logicalis conducted extensive research on BAS solutions before selecting HaXM,” said Ricky Magalhaes (pictured), Managed Security Services Director, Logicalis. “We chose XM Cyber’s solution for several reasons: it is automated, continuous, simple to implement, extremely reliable at detecting critical security issues, and offers prioritised remediation reports so customers can improve their IT hygiene and their security posture.”

“We are proud to have been selected by Logicalis as the technology provider for its new Purple Teaming Service,” XM Cyber CEO Noam Erez added. “The trust and support of such a respected managed service provider is a strong endorsement for our platform. XM Cyber continues to strive for excellence in innovation, and partnerships like these show the industry recognises that.”
