Barclays aims to improve its security strategy by using Microsoft security solutions.

The bank will use Microsoft technology to expand and automate its security detection. It adopted Microsoft Teams in 2022 but will also invest in more communication-based solutions to help its colleagues, customers and clients to feel safe and connected.

“Customer expectations continue to rise as digital leaders pursue higher standards of technology performance to differentiate – setting a higher bar for digital trust,” said Oliver Newbury, group chief information security officer at Barclays. “Working with Microsoft will support us to better detect, investigate, respond and protect against security threats.”

Theo Michalopoulos, general manager of financial services at Microsoft UK, said: “We are witnessing a rise in increasingly sophisticated and expansive cybersecurity attacks. “It’s imperative that organisations meet this challenge head on and the adoption of powerful AI, machine learning and defence-in-depth capabilities will better enable firms from all industries to detect threats and collaborate safely, while meeting emerging regulatory requirements in this new era of AI.”
