It’s tapping into cloud-based next-gen security solutions. Telecommunications company M1 Limited tapped into the brilliant minds at Proficio and Secura in the efforts of beefing up its cyberattack defenses.
M1 inked a partnership with Proficio for a round-the-clock security operations centre network monitoring service, the Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform.
The said platform provides a firewall and threat intelligence cloud that enables M1 subscribers to safely use applications.
“The Palo Alto Networks Next-Generation Security Platform enables M1 customers to most efficiently and effectively adopt a prevention-oriented security posture to best protect their internal assets and safely enable critical operations that rely on the use of applications,” M1 said in a statement.
Meanwhile, the telco also shook hands with Secura Group’s subsidiary Red Sentry for cyber advisory and consultancy.
Secura Chief Executive Officer Paul Lim said the alliance will allow the group to tap into the telco’s enterprise customer base as a growth springboard for its cyber security business.
“Our alliance with M1 allows us to leverage on our partner’s established brand in Singapore’s connectivity market and vast corporate customer base. With Red Sentry’s strong product expertise and 16-year track record, we are confident that this will be the start of a mutually beneficial alliance for both companies,” Lim noted.
