Performanta announces partnership with Global Cloud Xchange

The Cyber Safety pioneer extends its Managed Security Service offering through Global Cloud Xchange’s new Cyber Division

Performanta, the world’s first Managed Cyber Safety Service Provider, today announces its partnership with global network service provider, Global Cloud Xchange (GCX).

As GCX launches its new Cyber Division – a dedicated resource to offer consultancy and technical support to help organisations respond to increasing network security risks – Performanta will become a natural extension of the network’s team, offering its unique skill sets and services to the growing customer base through its expanding portfolio.

Performanta’s team of over 150 global cybersecurity professionals will support in the strategy and operation of GCX’s Attack Surface Management (ASM) and Managed Detection and Response (MDR) services. Leveraging Performanta’s proprietary tools for ASM, which assess both external and internal assets, and its MDR solution, which combines SIEM, EDR, SOAR and SOC monitoring on one platform, GCX and Performanta will optimise security incident monitoring to prevent events from falling through the cracks.

Guy Golan, CEO at Performanta comments: “In a crowded and ever-evolving market, businesses require comprehensive solutions and advice to manage the evolving threat landscape. Our partnership with GCX aims to tackle the mounting challenges that business face every day, with a holistic approach to cover all four corners of cybersecurity. The team is excited to be a part of such an innovative collective of companies, all committed to leading the charge against cyber adversaries. Performanta brings with it decades of experience founded on a Cyber Safe mindset that – at its core – strives to help businesses lower the risk and limit the impact of cyber breaches.”

Commenting on the new partnership, Jonathan Wright, Director of Products and Operations at GCX says: “One of the greatest challenges many companies face in managing the expansive and evolving network security threat landscape is the fragmentation of different security providers and solutions that form part of their defences. We have found partners like Performanta that have enabled us to immediately offer a more holistic, product-agnostic approach to network security management. This allows us to help our clients improve their resource and cost management, while maintaining the deep network knowledge and specialist experience in mitigating and responding to cybersecurity risk needed to defend against today’s threat landscape.”

This latest partnership is a milestone in the business’ growth acceleration, having just closed a landmark year of accolades, including joining the Microsoft Intelligent Security Association, and being awarded two Advanced Specialisms in Threat Protection and Identity and Access Management.
