CWSI forecasts €2 million in revenue from new Secure365 Managed Service

CWSI, recently awarded Microsoft Ireland Partner of the Year for Security and Compliance, today announces the launch of a new managed security service from which it expects to generate an additional €2 million revenue over the next 12 months.

CWSI’s Secure365 Managed Service helps Irish businesses to adopt the most advanced security and compliance tools from Microsoft, protecting company, staff and customer data against today’s evolving cyber threats.

CWSI has invested more than €1.5 million over the past two years in its Microsoft practice, specifically focused on key strategic security and mobility areas. The investment includes growing the CWSI engineering team, training, developing key Microsoft Gold and Silver security and mobility competencies and joint marketing activity with Microsoft. These investments laid the foundation for the launch of the Secure365 Managed Service.
The new fully managed service is designed to reflect modern workplace practices and the evolving security challenges facing organisations today. In addition to the increasing complexity of IT and sophistication of cyber-attacks, businesses are ever more reliant on the cloud, with data and applications increasingly accessed from outside the corporate network. COVID-19 has accelerated these trends, driving a spike in demand for remote access and leading to COVID-19 themed cyber-attacks that target VPN vulnerabilities and take advantage of evolving employee behaviours and workstyles.

CWSI’s Secure365 Managed Service covers the core security pillars of identity and access management, threat protection, information protection and security management. CWSI helps companies to navigate these areas and manages the continuous updates from the Microsoft innovation team to operating systems and applications. The service reduces the risk of a data breach while freeing up customers to focus on their core operations, all with the overarching goal of continuously improving their security posture.

As a result of its work and investment in helping Irish businesses to secure the modern workplace, CWSI was named as the Microsoft Ireland 2020 Partner of the Year for Security and Compliance at Microsoft’s annual Inspire conference. CWSI was recognised for its ability to help businesses accelerate their adoption of modern working and security practices – beginning with raising initial awareness of Microsoft’s security and compliance features in the Irish market through to fully enabling advanced features such as cloud app security.

Aisling Curtis, Commercial Director, Microsoft Ireland, said: “We congratulate CWSI on being awarded our Modern Work Security and Compliance partner of the year award. CWSI are a triple Gold Microsoft partner and this award is testament to their Microsoft partner investment and their best in class security and compliance expertise. CWSI have supported our customers to transform their modern work practices while critically ensuring that their businesses stay protected. Keeping your business secure and compliant is increasingly important given the significant accelerated pace of digital transformation in recent times. We look forward to strengthening our partnership further with CWSI over the coming years.”

Ronan Murphy, CEO, CWSI, commented: “The last number of months have seen unprecedented advances in digital transformation with a move to home working. Microsoft has been at the heart of this transformation globally and we have been committed to ensuring our customers have the tools to navigate the challenges and opportunities that come with a mobile-first world. Our newly launched managed service is built upon our Microsoft expertise, mobile heritage and specialist security focus and will enable businesses across Ireland to not only become secure; but stay secure as technologies and threats continue to evolve.
“Our recognition by Microsoft is a welcome acknowledgement of CWSI’s depth in security expertise. As we continue to enhance our managed service offerings, we are greatly looking forward to the next chapter of our partnership and growth.”
