Thales and RedSocks Security partner to serve organisations in the Netherlands

Thales and RedSocks Security are joining forces to deliver trusted cyber security services to a broader spectrum of businesses in the Netherlands. By combining RedSocks’ advanced detection method, the Malicious Threat Detector, with Thales’ state-of-the-art Cyber Security Operation Center (SOC), the two partners are providing a premium value, accessible and extendable Security Monitoring services to all high- and mid-end businesses and organizations in the Netherlands for whom cybersecurity matters.

The partnership arose from the observation that the need for cyber security is exponentially growing, especially from a business perspective. According to Ecorys, in 2030 the service industry will be responsible for 78% of the Dutch economy. As this industry runs on data, the reliability and protection of data is becoming more and more vital and a critical challenge for governments and businesses in order to stay competitive.

Cyber security is not only a matter of complying with the obligation to report data leaks, or the forthcoming European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). Floris van den Broek, CEO at RedSocks Security: “Security that meets the highest standards will determine the brand reputation and market position for every service provider.”

On one hand, based on their state of the art Cyber Security Operation Center in Huizen, Thales offers cyber security monitoring services that meet the highest standards on the market.

On the other hand, RedSocks’ detection method, based on the Malicious Threat Detector (offering 50,000 new threat indicators per hour and deployable in a few hours) offers one of the highest automated degree of detection in Europe.

The combined cyber security surveillance solution resulting from these two assets can be expanded incrementally with other detection methods, fitting customers’ specific need. Organisations will have the highest possible standard of detection and remediation at their disposal, at every level and as required.
