Lenovo and Microsoft are boosting business cyber resiliency

Lenovo & Microsoft join solution to ensure business continuity by integrating greater visibility with cyber protection, detection, response and recovery

Lenovo has partnered with Microsoft to provide joint customers with a Cyber Resiliency-as-a-Service (CRaaS) offering that integrates greater visibility, simplifies cyber protection, detection, response, and recovery in one solution. 

In this year’s annual survey of global CIOs, Lenovo found that data privacy/security, ransomware (68%), and securing budgets to support new tech requirements are the top three challenges businesses find most difficult to address. These challenges often stem from the hundreds of security tools that are specifically tailored to do one particular job - leading to a hodgepodge of solutions that must be connected to protect a whole network. 

Available in April 2024, the joint Lenovo/Microsoft CRaaS will simplify this enterprise security ecosystem by offering a comprehensive and interoperable suite of best-in-class security tools, fully managed by Lenovo. The new service will also help customers cut costs and reduce strain on lean-running security teams.

“Lenovo’s customers want broad protection and visibility across their organisations, a zero-trust approach and automated security and compliance, all while streamlining their vendor relationships and effectively managing technology costs,” said Marc Wheelhouse, Chief Security Officer, Lenovo Solutions and Services Group. “Cyber Resiliency as a Service is our comprehensive solution to help organizations effectively contend with sophisticated and frequent cyberattacks while also tackling other cybersecurity challenges like regulatory compliance and budget constraints.”

Comprehensive AI-powered security solution

CRaaS, the companies say, will simplify the enterprise security ecosystem by offering a comprehensive solution that brings the full power of the Microsoft security stack and is fully managed by Lenovo. Offering security features through an as-a-Service consumption model will offload labor and time-intensive tasks to free up customers and reduce overhead costs.

CRaaS will be enriched by Lenovo’s participation in the Microsoft Security Copilot Partner Private Preview. Security Copilot is the first AI-powered security product that enables security professionals to respond to threats quickly, process signals at machine speed, and assess risk exposure in minutes. It combines an advanced large language model (LLM) with a security-specific model that is informed by Microsoft’s unique global threat intelligence and more than 65 trillion daily signals.

“Security is one of the most pressing issues of our time and is key to driving business transformation and growth,” said Ann Johnson, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Security Business Development. “Together with Lenovo, we will empower organizations to be more resilient, secure, and productive with end-to-end, AI-powered security solutions and services.”
