Avasant Speaks at Digital Convergence Conference (DCC) 2019 Avasant Speaks at IAOP’s GOV19: Governance in the Digital Era
“Continue to invest in and grow security business through consulting. Leverage partner network to develop unique capabilities.”
- Established in 2017 after the merger of CSC with the Enterprise Services business of Hewlett Packard Enterprise (HPE), DXC’s security service is part of its Global Infrastructure Services (GIS) group. It consists of a global network of more than 12 security operations centers (SOCs) with 4,000+ security professionals providing IdAM, data protection, security risk management and Security Operations (SecOps) architecture design service.
- It also offers key diagnostic services that can be deployed before incidents happen, including Cyber Attack Simulation, Ransomware Diagnostic, Cyber Maturity Review and Privileged Account Security Diagnostics.
- DXC has identified security as a strategic growth lever for its digital transformation business. It has been making significant investments in building growth-driven leadership, in-house capabilities and a strong partner ecosystem. In December 2018, it brought in a new leader, Mark Hughes, who previously ran BT’s security practice. This and several other investments have brought security to the center of its strategy.
- It has built an ecosystem of over 250 partners on the back of its DXC Partner Network. Several security-related firms have long-running partnerships and engagements with DXC. Its partners include Symantec, RSA, SecureWorks, VMware, ServiceNow, and AWS.
- DXC works with these partner organizations to develop several unique security offerings for the new age IT environments. For instance, it developed a third-party on-demand virtual network function (VNF) in partnership with AT&T (based on its FlexWare) to address the security requirements of cloud-based networks.
Investments and Innovation
- DXC has maintained an organic expansion strategy for its cybersecurity-related business via security consulting. Due to the increase in global cyber attacks, it has also introduced identity access management-as-a-service and ransomware detection capabilities to its overall portfolio of services.
- With the acquisition of Luxoft, DXC has been able to complement and expand its digital offerings. It will now be able to leverage Luxoft’s cybersecurity-related offerings.
