British telecommunications major BT today said it has set up a new cybersecurity operations center (SOC) in Gurugram, which will have about 100 IT professionals.

The cyber SOC will monitor threats against BT's assets and its customers' networks on a 24/7 basis using a range of advanced cyber security tools, and through partnerships with the key suppliers, the company said in a statement.

It added that BT's team of cybersecurity specialists will be able to detect, analyze and mitigate threats in real-time.

Globally, it has about 3,000 cyber specialists, offering services in managed security, threat intelligence and security consulting. Its security division works with international organizations like Interpol and Europol to combat cybercrime and is one of the fastest growing areas of the company's business.

The SOC in Gurugram will provide follow-the-sun services, including threat assessment, investigations, intrusion detection & prevention, ethical hacking and penetration testing, for international businesses, the statement further said.

"The new Cyber SOC will employ a further 100 cybersecurity specialists. BT already has a team of 250 security people based separately in Gurugram, providing security services such as firewall and device management," it added.

No investment details were disclosed.

"The Cyber SOC... significantly adds to our security capability in the rapidly expanding Indian market, as well as to our global footprint of SOCs. We're committed to providing an industry-leading service to our international customers, and we're investing to ensure we remain their security partner of choice," BT Security CEO Mark Hughes said.

BT has been operating in India since 1987 and has offices in Delhi-NCR, Mumbai, Bengaluru, Kolkata, and Chennai. Its operations in the country support both Indian and multinational organizations.
