Cohere Communications and T&M Protection Resources Forge Cybersecurity Alliance
NEW YORK, NY – July 12, 2017 – Cohere Communications, LLC (“Cohere”) and T&M Protection Resources, LLC (“T&M”) announced their strategic relationship as a single source, Cybersecurity provider. Formed out of the growing complexity of cyber threats, the alliance will pair Cohere’s facilities-based, managed IT services with T&M’s Cyber intelligence and investigative solutions.
“In today’s ever-changing Cyber landscape, cooperation among the various Cyber disciplines is critical. With the recent WannaCry and Petya ransomware attacks, it is only a matter of time before the next occurrence. This alliance will provide our clients with a single point of contact to deliver rapid incident response, and expert situation analysis capabilities,” states Steven Francesco, Chairman, and CEO of Cohere.
The greater frequency and higher severity of Cyber intrusions have created the demand for a more comprehensive approach. The combined talents of both Cohere and T&M will offer the full breadth of support — from the protection of infrastructure and assets to incident response and crisis management. The alignment will provide customers with a unified solution that fuses the experience of industry experts ranging from Cohere’s Cyber technologies to T&M’s consultancy services.
“Our affiliation with Cohere will enable us to uplift our advisory practice with a comprehensive set of managed IT security solutions. The pace and sophistication of cyber-attacks accelerated the need for this relationship – to identify the gaps within our clients’ security frameworks, and to minimize their exposure to threats,” said Paul G. Lewis, Vice President of Technology Risk at T&M.
As part of this strategy, Cohere, and T&M are in discussions to jointly develop a Cybersecurity Operations Center (CSOC). This centralized facility will be responsible for providing comprehensive cyber threat intelligence, data logging, analytics, and forensic reporting. The CSOC will provide faster identification of potential cyber-attacks, as well as offer real-time cyber threat screening.
