BT has announced a multi-million pound investment in Safe Security, a US cyber-risk management firm.

Headquartered in Silicon Valley, its SAFE (Security Assessment Framework for Enterprises) platform allows organizations to take a health check of their existing defenses and understand their likelihood of suffering a major cyberattack.

The investment will allow BT to combine the SAFE platform with its managed security services to provide customers with a real time view of how safe they are against a fast-moving cyberthreat landscape.

Philip Jansen, Chief Executive of BT, said: “Cybersecurity is now at the top of the agenda for businesses and governments, who need to be able to trust that they’re protected against increasing levels of attack.

“Adding SAFE to BT’s proactive, predictive security services will give customers an enhanced view of their threat level, and rapidly pinpoint specific actions needed to strengthen their defenses. Already one of the world’s leading providers in a highly fragmented security market, this investment is a clear sign of BT’s ambition to grow further.”

In recognition of its experience in providing security solutions to organizations across the world, BT will be designated as the recommended global partner for improving a customer’s SAFE score. BT will also work collaboratively with Safe Security to develop future products.
