Dallas, Texas, May 8, 2023 – GDT, a leading global IT services provider, has launched a dedicated cybersecurity practice staffed with industry-leading senior advisors and technical staff to help clients incorporate modern, risk-based security across their businesses.

With an enhanced focus on cybersecurity, GDT is working to engage with clients and vendor partners to address increasingly sophisticated security and privacy threats as well as governance and compliance across complex IT environments. In addition to the end-to-end security comprising every GDT solution’s core, a dedicated practice enables GDT to offer security risk assessments and compliance readiness programs to help customers mitigate risk, increase visibility and manageability, and improve their security posture.

To understand clients’ problems, GDT offers comprehensive security solutions to achieve the business outcomes they require, specifically, risk and compliance, advisory services, professional technical services, managed security services, and resourcing services. In addition, the GDT team helps optimize security spend by modernizing its clients’ technology infrastructure with approaches to security tools consolidation and addressing the changing IT landscape with ZTNA, SASE, and cloud security, to mention a few. As part of its services, GDT leverages its deep partnerships with security providers such as Fortinet, Cisco Security, Palo Alto Networks, Zscaler, Crowdstrike, Arctic Wolf Networks, and others.

“Security is a top concern of our clients,” says GDT Chief Revenue Officer Dan Mosley. “A dedicated practice allows us to provide the increased value of reducing their risk, optimizing their security spend, and providing them with the peace of mind they’ve been searching for.”

Leading the effort is Jeanne Malone, VP of Security for GDT, whose primary focus will be on engaging customers and growing the security practice. Malone has more than 20 years of global security experience across all industries.

“Security is embedded in our DNA,” says Malone. “We take a modern, risk-based approach to helping our clients achieve a resilient cyber defense posture. Launching a dedicated security practice provides tremendous value to our clients, enabling us to innovate simple, scalable, and cost-effective solutions that meet their unique needs.”
