“Relieving organizations from all digital burdens from A to Z of course means that we secure them optimally against cyber risks on a daily basis,” said Koen Hautekeete, chief technology officer and director of technology services at Xylos. “With BlueVoyant, we now provide an ultra accurate and consolidated view of those risks. This enables us to achieve razor-sharp detection and analysis of incidents. The result? Always timely detection of risks and incidents, and the perfect support for the right remedies.”

Of the partnership, Steve Dierckens, country director Belgium and Luxembourg said: ”As Xylos puts it so well: everything the company does is united by its belief in the power of people. I believe that is what makes Xylos the perfect fit for BlueVoyant as a partner. Cybersecurity is all about people and bringing together skills and expertise. With this new partnership, we now bring the extraordinary local expertise and experience of Xylos on Modern Workplace and Hybrid Cloud services, together with BlueVoyant’s best solutions for managed cyber security services. Our global team of experts will act as an extension of Xylos team.“
