We understand the compliance and security challenges that today’s organisations face, having consulted on and supplied solutions for numerous businesses where this is paramount, including Government and Legal organisations. GCI’s Managed Security Services portfolio is unique in the marketplace as our services are individually tailored to suit your requirements, leaving you confident that your infrastructure is in the reliable hands of a firm who really understands your business.
Our services are divided into Managed Services and Independent Security Services. These span Professional Design, Deployment, Consultancy and Engineering Services and Advanced Threat Management, Vulnerability and Compliance Management, Audit-ready output, Compliance aligned security posture and much more - all pro-actively monitored and managed 24/7 by our UK based Security Operations Centre (SOC).
Managed Security Services
Managed Security Services are delivered through the scheduling and completion of proactive service tasks named ‘Watchpoints’. Groups of Watchpoints deliver sections of work to achieve a specific security objective, from managing and maintaining a secure configuration to the management of gateway web filtering, changing passwords and user privileges, wireless system reporting, and much more. Watchpoint engineering duties are automated into GCI’s leading IT Service Management platform, ServiceNow to guarantee that these objectives are completed on time, every time.
The security objectives are categorised and packaged into four tiers, starting with our entry-level Console Edition and ending with Premium to meet the requirements of each organisation.
Independent Security Services
For those who do not have a Managed Security Service in place but are looking to achieve a selection of specific security tasks, GCI’s Independent Security Services are for you.
GCI offers a variety of Independent Security Services which have been designed to provide point solutions for differing customer requirements. A popular starting point is a Security Assessment - in many cases the resulting report will drive specific projects to improve your security posture at which point a Managed Service can be entered or a compliance certification can be achieved.
Independent Security Services are also frequently commissioned by organisations who have their own security personnel but contract out specific projects, such as Office 365 Hardening as it’s more cost-effective and efficient than training an existing member of staff for a one-off piece of work.
GCI offers the following Security Services as either Fixed Price, recurring Independent Security Services or a one-off Professional Services project.
