The Bechtle Journey

Security is one of the core considerations that any business must have. We all know that security is a critical part of the business, but where do we begin?


  • How does a business best understand where its security risks are?
  • How does it address those risks, whilst remaining agile and responsive to end user requirements for access/usability?
  • How does it ensure its response to threats evolves ahead of those threats?


Implemented correctly, a security platform will consider vulnerabilities from the edge to the core, from client to data centre and will ensure your data, whether static or in motion, is as secure as it can be. It will also ensure that users have the correct access to data, at the correct times, without hindrance and without putting additional burden on your IT resource.


In this day and age, security is not just about antivirus on a laptop, it must also consider your business processes and how your users engage with systems and data. By embracing a current platform and proactive approach to data management, a security solution can be used to improve and enforce your business processes and reduce management overheads and risks.



As detailed on our Journeys homepage, Bechtle has an established model to support our clients, with key tailored steps for every part of the journey that fit your specific requirements.


The 4 stages below offer examples of actions Bechtle will carry out to help build your Security Journey:



1. Understand


  • Identification of existing environment – legacy systems, data location/policies/processes, compliance requirements, key business priorities, industry outlook, current areas of knowledge, international presence…
  • Vision for future environment – provide a secure environment that delivers the flexibility required by the business. Looking for how security layers interoperate and review requirement for root cause and triage solutions such as Security Information and Event Management (SIEM) or SIEM-as-a-Service
  • Workshops - key challenges and potential barriers to change, also provides greater understanding of the client organisation and their understanding of Bechtle.
  • Assessments – evaluate using e.g. health checks, penetration testing, process review and posture evaluation



2. Design


  • Design overview – document to form the basis of discussion and populated from the information and input from the “Understand” phase.
  • Test phase – outcome driven testing to ensure fit for purpose. Look for any challenges revealed during the test phase. Vendor engagement for technical deployment, support and escalation (via Bechtle pre sales).
  • Analysis and optimisation of security processes, looking at existing challenges and future requirements (Cloud Migration, Remote Working, Data Access, IOT, DLP, CASB, PAM, SieM)
  • Financial models reviewed and presented 



3. Deploy


  • Define project management team and engineers
  • Pre-configuration and onsite implementation (migrations and/or aligning to existing estate)
  • Onsite knowledge transfer and training
  • Optimisation tools implementation for on-premise/multi-cloud environment
  • Post-installation review



4. Support


  • SIEM-as-a-Service
  • Penetration Testing 
  • Process review and recommendations
  • Helpdesk services to support internal resources
  • Certified disposal/recycling services

The danger with considering security solutions is that you go too far and place such a restriction on your environment that it would make it unusable to your users. By working with Bechtle to gain an understanding of where your security threats are (both system and process based) a suitable methodology to security can be adopted.


The first step is to take a proactive approach to identifying where your vulnerabilities are, this will enable you to:

business flexibility
