Infosys, Palo Alto Networks partner to boost security posture for enterprises
Infosys said that it has entered into a 360-degree collaboration with American cybersecurity firm Palo Alto Networks to lift the security-maturity of large enterprises with mission-critical digital landscapes and help thwart the threat of cyberattacks on their critical infrastructure.
By bringing their combined expertise, the Indian IT services provider and Palo Alto Networks aim to expedite the creation of state-of-the-art network security solutions that will be provided via the former’s global network of security operations centers.
Infosys and Palo Alto Networks will boost the security solutions for their global customers such as Mercedes-Benz and others.
Nikesh Arora — CEO of Palo Alto Networks said: “It’s imperative for organizations to rethink their cybersecurity strategy as part of their digital transformation. Together with Infosys, we are securing enterprises at every stage of the business lifecycle, minimizing security risks while maximizing visibility of the security threat, impact and resolution.
“It’s a powerful partnership that will equip and empower our joint customers well.”
Infosys said that the Infosys Cyber Next platform provides comprehensive managed security services and brings swift security maturity backed by Palo Alto Networks Cortex XSOAR to more than 35 global enterprises via the Infosys Cyber Defense Centre network.
Additionally, Infosys and Palo Alto Networks will bring together solutions that help global organizations in securing hybrid cloud infrastructure from a single unified platform, while maximizing existing investments and integrating secure access service edge (SASE) and zero-trust architecture components.
Ravi Kumar S — Infosys President said: “Cyber incidents are as much a part of the new business reality as our growing reliance on digitalization with the proliferation of endpoint devices, and the vulnerabilities inherent in hybrid and remote-work setups. The competitive divide between winners and the others will stem from their ability to transform in response.
“Our strategic collaboration with Palo Alto Networks will help us create greater value faster for our clients as they look to secure their transformation landscapes even as they adapt in real time to ongoing dynamic shifts.”
