BUDAPEST & PRAGUE, June 15, 2023 — Kyndryl (NYSE: KD), the world’s largest IT infrastructure services provider, announced today it has added BlueVoyant cybersecurity to its services portfolio in Hungary and the Czech Republic. BlueVoyant is a global, industry-leading cyber defense company with a significant client base in the region that brings together internal and external security.
As the digital economy grows, the threat of digital crime is growing significantly. Damage from cyberattacks will amount to about $10.5 trillion USD annually by 2025 – a 300% increase from 2015, according to Cybersecurity Ventures. However, companies are much slower when investing to protect themselves. Worldwide spending on security solutions and services is forecast to be $219 billion USD this year, an increase of 12.1% compared to 2022, according to IDC.
“Today without a doubt, the question for almost every organization is not whether a security breach will happen, but when and how big the damage is,” said Ondřej Grolmus, sales director, Kyndryl Eastern European Territory (EET) and Czech Republic. “A proactive – versus reactive – approach to secure applications and mission-critical systems is a matter of survival.”
Kyndryl and BlueVoyant are collaborating to help companies address their cybersecurity challenges by enabling a faster and much more efficient approach, based on a broad framework comprising IT infrastructure and services. This approach helps organizations become more resilient by helping to quickly detect, prioritize, respond to, and prevent security breaches.
“Our strategic partnership with Kyndryl mutually extends our possibilities and strengthens each other’s business lines,” said Balazs Csendes, BlueVoyant sales director for Central and Eastern Europe (CEE). “We believe that Kyndryl’s global IT infrastructure and cybersecurity resources complemented with BlueVoyant’s full-spectrum cyber defense capabilities will help companies in all industries to secure their operations against the most sophisticated cyber attacks.”
Kyndryl provides expertise, services and technologies that help enterprises keep their vital systems secure, available, resilient, reliable and recoverable — regardless of their size and complexity. BlueVoyant’s cyber defense platform includes Managed Detection and Response (MDR), a complete Microsoft Security-focused portfolio, and BlueVoyant's Security Operations Center (SOC), which services customers with round-the-clock monitoring and incident response capabilities. BlueVoyant also offers Supply Chain Defense (SCD), which continuously monitors client’s third-party ecosystems and helps them quickly remediate threats, and Digital Risk Protection (DRP), which finds and takes down threats on the clear, deep and dark web. With these offerings, clients will receive an on-going and enhanced protection against evolving threats.
By combining Kyndryl’s and BlueVoyant’s services and skills, clients will be able to safely secure cloud data. Security services, like MDR, Incident Response, and Digital Forensics are optimized to get the most from existing subscriptions and to allow clients to maintain control of their data and their costs.
