The IRAP-accredited EY protected secure operations centre (SOC) allows the firm to offer Protected SOC services and security-checked personnel to its clients and Microsoft customers.
EY Oceania cybersecurity lead partner Richard Bergman said "We are really excited to welcome the team from SecureWorx to EY. The combination of Microsoft, EY and SecureWorx will make for a compelling proposition that will help protect the future of critical infrastructure.
"The EY Protected SOC is a unique way for businesses to increase protection of customer data and save money with automated processes at a time where organisations are looking for accredited onshore cyber capabilities.
"Large enterprises that are already Microsoft customers can now simplify and rationalise their cyber spend to get significant uplift in capability.
Microsoft Australia director of partner technology Phil Barlow said "EY are leaders in delivering cyber capability. Security concerns are paramount for organisations in all sectors, and the establishment of an EY Protected SOC in Australia will be welcomed by existing Microsoft customers.
"We are collaborating with EY on their Protected SOC Powered by Microsoft offering, which will extend the value for Microsoft clients via an Azure protected technology stack on critical infrastructure in an accredited end-to-end cyber security solution."
SecureWorx ex-CEO Philip Mulley said "I'm excited to formally start at EY Australia as sovereign cybersecurity leader, helping to transform our 24/7 security operations managed services capability.
"We're looking forward to adding a new dimension of service to clients by leveraging the global resources of EY."
