Alliance aims to enhance communications services in Africa

BT and MTN Business have announced a strategic alliance which will offer world class security and communications services to business customers across Africa. 

New and existing MTN Business customers will get access to a range of solutions, including cloud-based security and consultancy, managed connectivity, and voice services which will be delivered seamlessly as part of MTN’s Enterprise portfolio, meeting local regulatory and compliance requirements.  

Customers will benefit from BT’s innovative technology combined with MTN’s strong presence on the ground and proximity to customers. 

The first offering by BT and MTN will be a Security Operations Centre (SOC)-service, which will enable customers to consistently monitor and improve their cyber-security while preventing, detecting, analysing, and responding to cyber-security incidents. The new service is based on BT’s cloud-based Security Incident and Event Management (SIEM) service. 

With a subscription-based model that requires no capital investment, and BT’s accredited security team providing 24/7 monitoring, the service will be scaled up and available immediately to MTN’s existing and new customers. 

MTN will also tap into BT’s wide range of Unified Communications and Collaboration (UCC) solutions, including the provision of wholesale voice, Microsoft Teams voice, and global SIP solutions.
