Dimension Data to expand Earthwave security services worldwide

Jeremy Kirk | July 7, 2014
Dimension Data plans to expand worldwide a managed security service offering it brought under its wing with the acquisition of Sydney-based Earthwave last year.

Earthwave also has an option, called a managed instant response service, that allows companies to pay a retainer that reserves security analysts' time for immediate investigation into security threats.

"Clients are saying 'We don't want to have to call you and say we want a guy to do computer forensics or malware analysis' and you then find a consultant a week later," he said.

Under pre-arranged agreements, Earthwave analysts can charge ahead to investigate a security threat without a client needing to secure a separate contract for that kind of work, Minassian said. For example, a company may reserve three days worth of analysts' time for such investigations. Unused time is used to craft pro-active security plans, he said.
