Managed IT Security Services
CommSec are a next generation managed IT security services provider, based in Dublin, Ireland. We deliver robust managed IT security services and telecommunications solutions to our clients, but the real differentiator between us and others in the market is that our core values of pride and integrity underpin everything that we do.
We believe in delivering measurable value for money and empower our customers to operate more effectively.
Security Operations Centre
Specifically, CommSec provides a Security Operations Centre (SOC) and a Security Incident Event Management service to customers across a broad range of industry sectors. This provides customers with a service that monitors their entire IT network and all the devices within it. The team in CommSec can identify a potential security threat the moment it happens and take appropriate action – escalating to the internal IT team, or managed service provider in place, so everyone is aware that there is a security incident occurring.
Security Incident Event Management
CommSec can provide a full security incident event management service (SIEM) where they address the security incident immediately and are authorised to take whatever action is necessary to solve the problem.
One of the common challenges that SMEs have regarding security, is that they have no in-house expertise in areas such as Governance, Risk and Compliance and do not have the resources to remain up-to-speed with a constantly evolving threat landscape.
CommSec’s services are designed to address this – giving the SME sector access to enterprise levels of security technology and services, whether they have in-house IT resources, or use managed service providers to handle IT.
Data Protection and Chief Information Security Officer
In addition to security services, CommSec provide many SME’s with other vital functions such as Data Protection Officer and Chief Information Security Officer as a Service (CISO). These are key roles for many organisations where compliance and corporate governance are now a critical business risk issue.
CommSec was founded in 2013 by MD David McNamara, an IT industry veteran with 25 years’ experience. David began his career in the Defence Forces and after leaving the army he went on to hold senior sales roles in several blue-chip organisations, including Eir, Fujitsu, Siemens and IBM.
