Certified Security Operations Center GmbH is the result of a joint venture between TÜV TRUST IT GmbH, part of the TÜV AUSTRIA Group, and dhpg IT-Services GmbH, which offers comprehensive solutions to protect business clients from cyberattacks. The company offers a broad portfolio of services that can be tailored to clients’ requirements and circumstances.
At the heart of the service offering is Security Operations Center as a Service (SOCaaS), which has been successfully implemented for many years now. It’s a security solution that brings together a smart combination of cutting-edge sensor technology and experienced IT experts, not only allowing round-the-clock monitoring, but also enabling you to quickly evaluate risks and swiftly initiate countermeasures if required.

 

One collaboration – three winners 

Certified Security Operations Center GmbH is delighted about this new partnership with the x-tention group, which will allow the organization to expand into the healthcare market and reach even more companies with its established SOC. As one of the largest and most well-known IT service providers in the healthcare sector, the x-tention group supports numerous clients in the critical infrastructure sector, who are affected by the recently adopted German IT Security Act 2.0. The act obliges companies operating critical infrastructures – which include many hospitals – to use cyberattack detection systems. The SOC, which has provided reliable IT protection for numerous clients over the years, is the perfect solution.

Michael Punz, Head of Information Security & Data Protection at x-tention, sees the collaboration with Certified Security Operations Center GmbH as a great advantage for the group’s own clients: ‘The new requirements stipulated in the IT Security Act 2.0 compel many of our clients to take action. So we’re glad we can offer them SOCaaS, a tried-and-tested service that will enable them to fulfil the new rules in their entirety. At the same time, the new partnership allows us to reinforce our position on the IT security market and demonstrate that our clients can always rely on us, even when new statutory requirements are introduced.’

For the SOC providers, the collaboration is an opportunity to reach new clients in the healthcare sector. ‘The x-tention group is a strong partner whose clients need exactly what we provide. That’s a great plus for us because it helps us become even more visible on the healthcare market and expand our customer base in that area,’ explains Joerg Lammerich, Managing Director of Certified Security Operations Center GmbH. He concludes that: ‘By adding our SOC to our collaboration partner’s portfolio, we gain new clients and opportunities.’ So, the cooperation will not only be a fruitful endeavour for both companies, but it will be particularly beneficial for their clients, too.
