BT and Google Cloud advance cybersecurity with new partnership

Fri 13 Oct 2023

BT and Google Cloud has announced a new partnership focusing on an enhanced commitment to cybersecurity innovation.

As part of the partnership, BT will become a managed services delivery partner for Google’s Autonomic Security Operations (ASO) offering based on Google Chronicle. ASO is a holistic framework that combines principles, practices, and tools that enable organisations to take an adaptive and automated approach to threat management.

Customers will benefit from the new partnership by gaining the technological capabilities of Google Chronicle, combined with BT’s track record of delivering cybersecurity services to organisations with complex estates and requirements.

“Combining Google Chronicle’s capabilities with BT’s view of global networks and experience of providing managed security services is a really exciting prospect. It represents the first step in our partnership with Google Cloud on cybersecurity,” said Tris Morgan, Managing Director for Security at BT.

The partnership builds on BT Group and Google’s existing relationship to house BT Group’s data in Google Cloud to support its analytics and AI ambitions.

“Our partnership brings the best of BT’s experience in deploying big data-based security platforms with Google Cloud’s innovative security capabilities to help our multinational customers transform their approaches to cyber risk management in the face of a rapidly changing threat landscape,” said Magali Bohn, Global Director for Partnerships and Channels at Google Cloud Security.

BT and Google Cloud will also seek to incorporate solutions from Mandiant, a threat intelligence solutions provider acquired by Google in 2022, as an additional aspect of the partnership. Finally, BT is working with Google Cloud to trial Google’s Vertex AI and Duet AI capabilities.
