“High Wire Network’s is thrilled to be expanding the global reach of Overwatch managed security services to our partners and their customers through the cutover of our international data center.”
SAINT PETER PORT, Guernsey and CHICAGO (PRWEB) February 25, 2020
High Wire Networks, a leading provider of managed security services based in Chicago, announced today the addition of a new international data center in Guernsey, British Isles, to support the delivery of High Wire Network’s Overwatch managed security services globally.
Through a strategic partnership with West Sealand Digital (WSD), a managed security service provider (MSSP) based in Guernsey, High Wire Networks is building a two-tiered sales channel across Europe and the Middle East for the Overwatch Managed Security Platform-as-a-Service.
“In today’s world, cybersecurity business requires redundant methods and processes for resilient data protection and management in order to ensure total availability of their services,” said Philip Burnett, Chief Information Security Officer (CISO) at High Wire Networks. “High Wire Network’s is thrilled to be expanding the global reach of Overwatch managed security services to our partners and their customers through the cutover of our international data center.”
Significantly, the new data center enables support for organizations that must comply with General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), Europe’s data privacy and security regulations – the most rigorous in the world to date. An added benefit is that Guernsey has stringent rights for data access, providing yet further privacy and protection for High Wire Network’s customers.
“We’re excited to be working with High Wire Networks to extend the reach of Overwatch globally, said David Crook, Director at WSD. “Clients are increasingly aware of data sovereignty, the ability to securely locate their data in a trusted offshore location adds many benefits. Our proximity and direct links to the U.K. and mainland Europe provide low latency for faster cybersecurity incident detection and response — an edge that can be critical in countering cyberattacks.”
Additionally, Overwatch distributors and customers within the European Union and the United Kingdom can now purchase services in their local currency.
