How BDO Digital helps businesses become AI-ready

BDO Digital provides a holistic portfolio of technology and transformation services and solutions, tailored by industry and designed for the middle market and enterprise clients. More importantly, our strategic digital approach delivers solutions that enable businesses to be agile, efficient and resilient to change.

Maximising ROI with AI - securely

AI is THE hot topic for business today – but it’s not just about harnessing AI, it’s about doing so securely and responsibly. AI has the potential to revolutionise the field of security, but it also poses significant risks, including bias and discrimination, vulnerability and lack of human oversights. The journey to effective and responsible AI has multiple steps. In addition to future-proofing your security, making sure you have all the bases covered will accelerate your path to success.

Enter BDO Digital’s Perpetual Defense solution, which manages and mitigates risk for our clients through the use of Microsoft technology, allowing our clients to benefit from a modern security platform that improves resiliency.  We know that no one is safe from cyber-attacks and so we leverage the 67 trillion signals Microsoft receives from around the world each day along with our processes, while our highly trained staff guide and protect our clients.

Our recent engagement with one of our global manufacturing and distribution clients helped them increase their Microsoft Secure score from 41% to 75% and halved the number of actionable cyber security alerts, with further improvements expected. Our team made use of solutions across the Microsoft suite, including Microsoft Sentinel, Microsoft 365 Defender, Microsoft Defender for Office 365, Microsoft Defender for Identity, Azure AD Premium, and Microsoft Defender for Cloud alongside our own managed extended detection and response (MXDR) solution.

Our client now has improved access and visibility into security trends and metrics across cloud and on-premise systems, and the comfort that, with our help, they are set up to detect and respond to advanced cyberattacks, malicious behavior, and security threats.

BDO Digital wins Microsoft’s 2023 global security Partner of the Year award

Winning an award of this nature is difficult and prestigious. This year Microsoft received more than 4,200 nominations across 106 countries/regions for the Partner of the Year Awards.  BDO is honoured and very proud of this recognition, which resulted from Microsoft evaluating the following specific criteria:

  • The depth and scalability of BDO Digital’s offerings in compliance, identity and security
  • The level of expertise and service we provide our clients
  • The innovations that we’ve built to add value to the Microsoft platform
  • Our people - and their commitment to learning, development and advancement.

We look forward to deepening our relationship with Microsoft and other strategic vendors to drive true client business value with our security and cyber solutions.  We will continue to build capability and capacity to help our clients around the world secure their environments so they can achieve their business goals and innovate for future growth.
