PwC New Zealand has launched a new cloud security operations centre (SOC) for the Microsoft technology stack. 

Craig Maskell, cyber consulting partner at PwC New Zealand, said it is critical for New Zealand SOCs to leverage automation to significantly improve attack detection and containment, whilst reducing reliance on large operations teams when there is a shortage of expertise in the market. 

“By providing a fully transparent service based on a client’s digital estate and operational model we also enable them to build capability,” he said. “PwC supports our clients to adopt and build their own intellectual property using our local and global body of knowledge. 

“Microsoft and PwC’s capabilities are aligned to help organisations successfully respond and adapt to the major shifts shaping the world. We know that security and information protection are among the key risks facing businesses today and we’re working together to keep our clients safe, and to help them think about appropriate governance and security measures they need in place to protect against threats.” 

Vanessa Sorenson, managing director of Microsoft New Zealand, said the strength of the alliance partnership with PwC is helping shape stronger, more successful and resilient organisations in the country.
