To support its continued growth, a Fintech organisation wanted to show prospective clients evidence of its security maturity while protecting its infrastructure and achieving regulatory compliance with the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA).

Working in partnership with Sapphire and their Managed Security Services, the organisation has enhanced its security visibility and maturity while keeping costs and resources to a minimum.

MSSP Selection Process

The Cyber Security Director had previously used Sapphire Professional Services for various specific cybersecurity projects. He now sought their expertise in the growth, management and delivery of security services – his Managed Security Service Provider (MSSP) of choice.

“I was invited to Sapphire’s National Information Security Conference (NISC) a few years ago and was sold on their cybersecurity knowledge. Sapphire has an acute understanding of the type of threats that put organisations in the financial services sector at risk.

Having experienced their quality of service in all my subsequent roles, it made sense to contact Sapphire again. Their approach to cybersecurity is to work with organisations in partnership and to bridge the gap in a customer’s expertise and knowledge.”

In their due diligence, the organisation’s clients often ask where their cybersecurity operations are located due to data processing laws and stringent compliance requirements.

This question was an important one. Sapphire, which provides a UK-based MSSP and Security Operation Centre (SOC), has all its data collection, processing and analyst investigations conducted entirely within the United Kingdom.


Impact of Sapphire’s Managed Security Services

24x7x365 support

The fintech organisation receives 24x7x365 threat monitoring, logging, analysis, notification, and threat hunting via Sapphire’s dedicated UK-based Security Operations Centre (SOC). The organisation is now resilient and better equipped to respond effectively to cyber threats


extension of the IT team

Sapphire’s SOC analysts are an extension of the organisation’s IT team. Sapphire’s support has enabled the fintech organisation to maximise efficiency and accuracy while allowing them to focus on what matters most


increased monitoring and logging

The Managed SIEM service has increased the level of monitoring and logging. Sapphire collects and processes data from across the organisation, including all devices and systems, providing a centralised view of all security events as they occur.
