What We Do

Managed Security Services

arrow icon arrow icon

Ensure the security of your organisation with a flexible and tailored managed security service that handles the heavy lifting and proactively detects, investigates, and mitigates threats before they become issues.


Your security in safe hands.

Cyber security and effective security operations are no longer optional for organisations that wish to operate securely, protect data, and in many cases, stay in business.

Between complex cloud and hybrid infrastructures, remote working, advanced cyber-attacks, and increasingly strict compliance requirements, security and compliance are now front and centre on Board agendas.

The stakes have never been higher, with cyber threats increasing, industrialised ransomware, and the potential for attacks to result in reputational damage, lost revenue, and hefty fines – or even a complete inability to operate.

Effective security operations are a must for modern organisations, but there are few that can muster the skills and resources needed for effective in-house threat detection and response.

At Kocho, we’re well versed in the challenges facing IT departments struggling to get on top of their security.

That’s why our Security Operations Centre (SOC) has developed a suite of Managed Security Services built on Microsoft’s market-leading security technology.

We help you achieve the security you need faster, easier, and more cost-effectively.

39% of UK businesses have reported a cyber-attack in the past 12 months, with 83% of those attacks stemming from phishing attempts.

Common challenges:

Limited visibility and noise

You’ve got multiple security solutions but no single view, and no sense of the issues – just sheer volume of data and noisy environments.

Slow threat response

When a potential threat is detected, the incident can be unclear and the remediation process is slow and ineffective.
