UK provider BT has entered into a strategic agreement with African connectivity supplier, Seacom to help the latter secure its infrastructure and deliver new networking, security and communications solutions to enterprise customers in Africa.

Seacom will leverage BT’s services, vendor relationships and global expertise to expand its portfolio of services aimed at African businesses. Since the launch of its business division, the company has grown its customer and partnership base to strengthen its offerings and serve customers beyond existing markets.

Seacom’s customers will be able to access BT’s cloud security incident event management (SIEM) platform, which provides real-time visibility and monitoring across the organisation's entire IT environment, providing a security overlay to the company’s existing ICT solutions.

Oliver Fortuin, group chief executive officer at Seacom says: ‘We’re excited to form this strategic alliance with BT and see the combined value of what we bring to our respective markets. With Seacom’s global network and local presence, and BT’s global reach and expertise, we will be able to deliver a comprehensive portfolio of cloud, security, and connectivity services that are reliable, scalable, and at the cutting-edge of industry.’

Adds Alessandro Adriani, director of system integrators and telecom service providers at BT’s Global unit: ‘We are thrilled to deliver BT’s world-class solutions to SEACOM and to their customers across the African continent. The areas of secure multi-cloud connectivity, next-generation networking solutions and collaboration services are the sweet spot where SEACOM and BT will combine their respective strengths.’
