SOC specialist Radar Cyber Security equips service providers Axians and Actemium – two VINCI Energies brands – to secure IT and OT environments in Switzerland and Germany

Basel, Vienna. VINCI Energies, the energy and information and communication technology division of the VINCI Group, opened a new IT/OT Security Operations Center (SOC) for its two brands Axians and Actemium in Basel. From the new location, security experts from Axians and Actemium will check the IT and OT (Operational Technology) of their corporate customers from Switzerland and Germany for suspicious operations in order to detect and prevent cyberattacks. The new SOC is technically based on the Cyber Detection Platform of the European SOC specialist Radar Cyber Security. It simplifies and accelerates the detection of security incidents, making their processing transparent both in IT and in networked machines and devices.

The SOC is located in the international competence center for Industry 4.0 uptown Basel in Arlesheim. It is to become the place of work for up to 30 security analysts. On October 28, it was opened as part of a half-day program with the possibility of a tour and numerous technical presentations. Many speakers emphasized the importance of holistic protection of industrial facilities.

The Radar Cyber Detection Platform enables both companies and service providers to set up a Security Operations Center (SOC) or Cyber Defense Center (CDC). This enables managed detection and response services to be offered. The platform provides security analysts with all security-relevant information across the entire IT and OT landscape of the organizations. Concrete recommendations to increase cyber resilience can be presented and tracked. The orchestrated detection based on various modules ensures professional risk management and advanced security. In addition to its proprietary technology, Radar also offers its customers processes and 10 years of best practice experience through its own activities as a SOC service provider (SOC/CDCaaS).

“The competitiveness of companies from Switzerland and Germany depends on digitalization. And this only becomes reality with cyber resilience. When building our Basel IT/OT SOC, it was important not to settle for IT security only. Industrial customers and organizations with networked devices and machines are raising the level of protection against cyberattacks to a whole new level.”

says Freddy Bürkli, Head of Business Unit Security Services at Axians.

Ali Carl Gülerman, CEO of Radar Cyber Security, adds:

“Industrial companies face constant cyber attacks and are seeking partners to protect them. That’s why we’re very happy that we were able to contribute to the new SOC in Basel. Axians and Actemium had the foresight to go for European technology – granted without backdoors and with the highest data protection standards”
