CloudGuard Unveils Manchester Security Operations Centre to Strengthen SME Cybersecurity

CloudGuard, a prominent Microsoft security automation specialist and Managed Security Services Provider, is excited to announce the opening of its Security Operations Centre (SOC) in Manchester.

This strategic initiative is designed to meet the increasing demands of customers, providing 24x7x365 security expertise to both UK and international businesses. This development is especially beneficial for small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) that often lack the necessary resources and skills to build and manage their own SOC teams effectively.

Following the recent move of its Head Office to Manchester, CloudGuard is further establishing its presence in the city, taking advantage of Manchester’s growing reputation as a significant cyber hub. The expanded SOC will offer top-notch security services, including operational and incident response, security product support, threat hunting, security automation, and advanced data science.

Matt Lovell, CEO of CloudGuard said: “As our customers and their requirements continue to change and evolve, so must we. We are delighted to now include greater round-the-clock UK-based security expertise at all levels from our Manchester home. Manchester is rapidly becoming a major cyber hub for talent and expertise, and our growing partnership with universities in the area to accelerate our data science and automation developments is really exciting.”

Since launching its managed SOC service in 2022, CloudGuard has delivered essential cybersecurity solutions, addressing the increasingly frequent, targeted, and sophisticated attacks faced by SMEs. The SOC’s services now include comprehensive email and integrated application security monitoring, operational technology (OT), and incident response (IR) expertise. This ensures that solutions are fully tailored to meet each business’s unique security requirements.

CloudGuard’s automation-led approach, combined with human intervention for contextual understanding and product expertise, ensures a seamless and integrated incident resolution experience. The newly launched SOC will now offer round-the-clock detection, response, support, and resolution, providing customers with peace of mind that their cybersecurity needs are comprehensively met.

Matt added: “Our commitment to continually improving our customers’ cybersecurity posture through AI and automation remains at the core of CloudGuard. Our Guardians work closely with customers to understand their evolving business changes and threat landscapes, helping to continually improve cyber posture and reduce risks.”

CloudGuard has forged long-term strategic partnerships with industry leaders such as Microsoft, Recorded Future, Dragos, CrowdStrike, Google, Sophos, and Tenable. Recently, these partnerships have been extended to include Fortinet, CloudFlare, Abnormal, and Wiz. These collaborations enhance CloudGuard’s capabilities to provide closer integration and AI-driven cyber automated response to resolution for email, network, cloud services, and enhanced user behavioural analytics.
