Two cybersecurity powerhouses partner to provide defensive and offensive security services to boost enterprise companies’ security posture.
Scottsdale, Ariz.— Datashield, a Scottsdale-based cybersecurity company, recently inked its partnership with offensive security services firm Bishop Fox. Both companies are based in Arizona and provide outsourced cybersecurity services to top Fortune 500 companies.
At a time where 70% of cybersecurity professionals claim their organization is impacted by the cybersecurity skills shortage and are unable to build a holistic defensive and offensive security team, Datashield and Bishop Fox are offering combined outsourced services, joining the "red" and "blue" cybersecurity team activities. This complimentary set of services allows organizations to completely outsource their security services or add an extension to their in-house team.
With the combination of these two solutions, you get Bishop Fox's external, attacker-focused automation and human expertise to continuously monitor your attack surface for vulnerabilities with DataShield’s defense in-depth monitoring 24/7 and advanced Security Operations Center (SOC) capabilities.
“We’re tremendously excited to partner with someone we feel is our counterpart in the offensive security space,” said Dave Norlin, Chief Information Security Officer at Datashield. “A lot of organizations struggle to bring red and blue insights into a cohesive model of understanding on their own, much less finding that in an integrated service.”
Together, Datashield will be offering something that is unique in the security service space: a team-based, wholistic approach to security with experts on both ends of the security spectrum.
“We love Datashield as a partner since their defensive-focused approach to monitoring and responding to threats using their SHIELDVision platform perfectly matched and complimented our offensive-focused CAST security testing service,” said Jon Rose, Vice President of Managed Security Services at Bishop Fox. “It represents the intersection of Red Team and Blue Team at scale to provide a more complete security posture than could be done before.”
Bishop Fox recently announced CAST, a managed subscription service that combines a next-generation attack platform with expert-driven penetration tests to deliver visibility into an organization's security posture. With today’s increasingly sophisticated and aggressive cyber attacks, CAST helps organizations to stay ahead of emerging threats and bad actors.
