IRM announces strategic relationship with XCyber®

IRM have today announced a new step in their strategic relationship with the Cyber Security firm XCyber for the provision of Threat Intelligence Services.

Recent years have shown how damaging the global coverage of a hacking incident can be to brands, and the threats posed are only increasing. Security is now one of the most important factors impacting business and IT decisions.

The latest step in this strategic relationship will provide all existing IRM customers a unique advantage in this issue by giving them privileged access to Tsunami Buoy®, XCyber’s proprietary cyber intelligence platform.

With an aggregate of over 200 years cyber experience and leadership in the British Government, the XCyber team have advised numerous Law Enforcement, Intelligence, and Security services across the globe on cyber strategies, including in hostile environments.

Sean Arrowsmith, sales director at IRM, said, “We have selected XCyber on the simple premise that they do one thing extremely well – provide top class, actionable intelligence. This gives our customers a competitive edge when dealing with these very real threats”

This is something all IRM customer’s can now benefit from, with some customers already benefiting from the intelligence provided by XCyber.

Sean continued, “Their proprietary cyber intelligence platform, Tsunami Buoy, contains unique intelligence and insights and we felt convinced that if there was something out there to find, XCyber would find it. This type of intelligence is invaluable in augmenting our client’s cyber defences- forewarned is forearmed, and this works in concert with our existing service portfolio.

XCyber are focused solely on the ‘Human Side of Cyber®’ as part of their mission to provide intelligence-led, data-driven and evidence-based reporting, enabling decision making on issues such as cyber security and cyber defence, as well as in corporate investigations.
