Posted: 27/04/2020

JT has partnered with ITC Secure (ITC), a managed security service provider (MSSP) and specialist cyber advisory firm, to bring world-class managed security services to the Channel Islands for the first time.

The partnership addresses the growing need for better online protection, offering enhanced cybersecurity making JT customers safer than ever before across the Channel Islands. It is especially important now as our dependency on digital communications multiplies.

Through this partnership, JT has expanded and improved its existing portfolio of services including security monitoring, advanced threat detection, managed detection and response, plus early warning of planned cyber-attacks, which are all delivered 24 hours a day. It also enables closer collaboration between JT’s technical experts and ITC’s security analysts for faster on the ground response.

The skills gap in the cybersecurity industry means recruiting and retaining the right experts within a business can be challenging. JT’s partnership with ITC brings a comprehensive approach to cybersecurity and risk management, providing Channel Island businesses with round the clock access to qualified analysts to support their digital transformation and protect their business.

Graeme Millar, Chief Executive of JT Group said: “This new partnership has greatly enhanced our existing portfolio of services, enabling us to provide sophisticated next-generation managed security services to our customers. This is more important now than ever, as we navigate through current events affecting us all, which places an increased pressure on networks and systems, and home working for many businesses. Our relationship with ITC brings together critical skills and expertise that will enable and empower Channel Island businesses to defend against the evolving threats of tomorrow. Together, we will encourage a proactive, rather than reactive, approach to cybersecurity and risk management.”

Arno Robbertse, Chief Executive of ITC Secure commented: “We are proud to partner with JT and to provide our services to the Channel Islands. As a globally recognised centre for financial services, Jersey and the other islands, like most places in the world are under constant threat of cyber-attack. It is great for us to be able to make a significant and positive impact on this issue and with JT to help make the Channel Islands a safer place to do business online.”
