At the prestigious NetLaw Media Annual British Legal Technology Awards in London, Arctic Wolf was recognised as the top IT Security Provider of the year.
Milestones like this offer a useful point of reflection both personally and professionally. It’s well documented that Arctic Wolf EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) is a new venture for the North American leader in security operations.
In fact, when six of us started this ambitious project for the company back in April 2021 we had no idea quite what a journey this company would take us on. From recruiting and building a positive and enthusiastic partner channel to onboarding organisations of all sizes and specialties excited to harness our concierge-delivered security operations services for their security needs — it’s a somewhat humbling experience.
Arctic Wolf has only been in the UK for 18 months, and yet is already a major player in the law and legal industry and wider professional services world. We are helping stretched IT teams to manage their business and technology risk along with detecting and responding to modern cyberthreats 24×7.
During this time Arctic Wolf has already signed up over 10 legal firms in the UK, including a top 20 global firm with thousands of users and offices around the world. In all cases, what has attracted them to us is our Concierge Security® Team and ability to respond to any emergency 24×7 as a true security partner – not a vendor throwing more alerts over the wall to an already overwhelmed IT operations team.
One legal firm – Sheridans – explained it best: ‘With so many security products extolling the benefits of automation, we find the more effective solution is to have the right people to bolster our line of defence. Someone to help us solve the problem in the moment, not create more alerts to add to our workload.’
It’s the ‘human in the loop’ which many legal firms find vital, in addition to our machine learning and cutting-edge technology. Not only do they know that when Arctic Wolf flags an incident it’s because it’s critical, but also, they have a named expert who can help them deal with the alert and with any actionable guidance for remediation and vulnerability management.
