British MSSP ITC Secure and Identity Experts, a UK-based identity and access management (IAM) solutions provider, are working together to deliver managed security services built on Microsoft's security stack.

Identity Experts and ITC have launched a joint security operations center-as-a-service (SOCaaS) offering, the companies stated. The SOCaaS offering uses Microsoft Azure Sentinel security information and event management (SIEM) technology for threat hunting and managed detection and response (MDR).

In addition, Identity Experts will deliver Microsoft SOC services via ITC's SOC, according to the companies. Identity Experts and ITC also will provide round-the-clock, end-to-end cybersecurity solutions supported by Microsoft experts.

What Does the Partnership Mean for Both Companies?

Organizations are increasingly using SOCaaS for real-time cyber threat monitoring, detection and analysis. Meanwhile, Identity Experts and ITC could use the partnership to capitalize on the rising demand for SOCaaS globally.

The Identity Experts-ITC partnership also enables both companies to expand their security offerings. It ensures that the companies can deliver Microsoft security services to help organizations combat current and emerging cyber threats.
