Deloitte Launches Managed Threat Service and Managed Digital Identity Service

Deloitte has launched its Managed Threat and Managed Digital Identity Services aimed at empowering enterprises to strengthen their cybersecurity posture.

“To stay ahead of emerging cyber threats, there is a need to deploy cyber risk solutions in an accelerated manner and to embed these solutions across the organization,” said Adnan Amjad, partner, Deloitte & Touche LLP. “Our tailored Managed Threat and Digital Identity Services are designed to help our clients to better address digital transformation trends like the cloud and Internet of Things at a much faster pace while reducing cyber risk for their most valuable assets across the enterprise.”

The new managed digital identity service is designed to help reduce the barriers of moving to the cloud and limit the need for parallel identity solutions, while allowing organizations to integrate disparate systems. With solutions that support both modern API-based and legacy applications and business processes, efficiencies can be created to enable end-users to instead focus on security priorities.

Deloitte’s Managed Threat Services are designed to help organizations identify significant threats requiring immediate attention by expanding the aperture of context surrounding an anomaly for better threat detection. The service deploys cyber-hunting, orchestration and remediation, risk analytics, and behavior analytics to develop hypotheses based on applied threat intelligence and patterns detected from within an environment.
