BT launches transformational new security platform, Eagle-i, to predict and prevent cyber attacks

Business and public sector bodies continue to face an exponential growth in the volume  and complexity of cyber attacks, with new research from BT identifying a more than 50 per cent increase in malware traffic over the last six months. Alongside a global shortage  of skilled security professionals, organisations around the world are struggling to keep a lid  on evolving cyber threats and maintain their defences.  

In response, BT is launching its most sophisticated cyber defence platform yet — Eagle-i. It  combines BT’s industry-leading network insight with advances in AI and automation to  predict, detect and neutralise security threats before they get a chance to inflict  damage. The platform has been designed to self-learn from the intelligence provided by each intervention, so that it constantly improves its threat knowledge and dynamically  refines how it protects customers across a multi-cloud environment.  

Eagle-i will utilise an AI layer to provide real-time detection of issues and intelligent  automated responses, enabling users to significantly speed up their reaction to security  issues and outpace their cyber threats. It is also uniquely able to integrate with  technologies from across the security ecosystem so that organisations can both optimise  their capabilities and spot any holes in their defences without having to replace existing  investments. The platform will underpin how BT protects its global operations and provide  phased enhancements and increased functionalities for all BT’s managed security  services.  

Kevin Brown, managing director, BT Security, said: “Security is now at the top of the  boardroom and government agenda — yet many organisations are seeing their cyber  risks increase to unmanageable levels. This situation demands a new, proactive approach.  Eagle-i leverages the latest advances in AI and automation to continually monitor, learn  and evolve so customers can stay a step ahead of cyber criminals.”
