by Eleanor Barlow • Nov 2021

November 12th, 2021; Brisbane, Australia:

Leading Australian technology services and solutions provider, Data#3, today announced that it has partnered with global provider, SecurityHQ, to expand its Managed Security services. Data#3’s new Managed Security service adopts a practical and customer-first approach that provides the opportunity to access to the people, processes and technology needed to proactively detect and remediate sophisticated threats, violations and incidents.

Leveraging a new security operations centre (SOC) offering, powered by SecurityHQ, Data#3 can now provide customers with the ability to rapidly identify and limit the impact of security incidents. This is achieved through the provision of a 24/7/365 threat monitoring, detection and targeted response service.

Data#3 Executive General Manager, Michael Bowser, commented, “Customers have told us for the last seven years that cybersecurity is their number one priority. The SecurityHQ investment is another step toward offering more for our customers and provides them access to a world-class solution.”

Data#3 National Practice Manager for Security, Richard Dornhart, commented, “Protecting data, networks and applications is critical in today’s world. Not a day goes by that we don’t see a new major incident in the news, and this is a significant challenge for our customers. However, many IT teams lack the time, resources or knowledge to adequately provision their own security. That’s where we can help. As SecurityHQ’s exclusive Australian partner, we will bolster our capability to meet our customers increasing demand for SOC services.”

‘We are delighted to announce the SecurityHQ partnership with Data#3. As a global company, SecurityHQ works with clients from all over the world. Many of our leading customers have a presence in Australia, and as we continue to expand in this part of the world, it is crucial to select the right partner to take this journey to the next level.’ –Feras Tappuni, CEO, SecurityHQ.

‘Data#3 is aligned with SecurityHQ both in terms of business strategy and in terms of the depth of knowledge they bring. Not only do they have the technical know-how but, above else, they share the same core values, based on complete visibility and integrity. We look forward to developing this partnership, and to continue delivering the best possible service to our clients.’ –Sanket Khanolkar, COO, SecurityHQ

By combining the experience of Data#3’s dedicated strategic consulting team and its hands-on cybersecurity specialists, with SecurityHQ’s leading SOC, Data#3 has one of the most comprehensive Managed Security solutions in Australia. It offers superior customer experience and complete operational delivery transparency, with an efficient proactive service to help customers to solve their security challenges.
