In the post Covid-19 world, security challenges and priorities have shifted as the need for greater collaboration has intensified – and with so many employees working from home, there has never been a better time for a technology refresh.
According to SCC’s own research, almost twice as many IT leaders believe cloud security is now one of the biggest threats to IT security following the Covid-19 pandemic. With widespread homeworking and increased vulnerability to cyber-attacks as a result of the global pandemic, there is now a bigger focus on end user device security, identity and access management and cyber security.
With change comes opportunity – and the chance to refresh network technology with little disruption to business-as-usual. Together with Cisco, SCC can deliver a technology refresh that fully supports and protects your organisation as we enter a new normal.
- Keeping your organisation safe from increased cyber-attacks as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic

SCC Security Lifecycle
Helping organisations align their security strategy with risk management and business requirements.
The lifecycle is based on our continuous review and adaptation of technology and processes, using a four-stage model: PREDICT, PREVENT, RESPOND, DETECT.
SCC’s audit service is powered by Cisco Smart Services: giving customers on-going visibility of their entire estate via periodic reporting and automated alerts, as well as End of Sale/Life/Support notification and firmware reporting – mitigating risks and unplanned downtime.
Cisco for Security
Cisco Stealthwatch Enterprise and Cisco ISE work together with the network to provide powerful, highly secure access; automated threat detection; and software-defined segmentation. They can even detect encrypted threats.
Make sure your security systems are fit-for-purpose now and in the future with better incident response, remote access and end point security (AMP), remote worker vigilance, monitoring and visibility.
The Cisco Enterprise Agreement (Cisco EA) is ideal for organisations that want financial predictability, a simplified IT environment, or have a technology growth plan.
